Danny, on the issues!
To me, true Conservatism is Constitutional Conservatism. Supporting and defending the Constitution of the United States as it was written and intended will be my highest purpose as a Representative of the people in the 14th District. The Constitution, an imperfect document, is perfect for these imperfect times, and is the moral fiber necessary for maintaining our Republic and defending every human’s right to their life, their liberty, and their property.
Per the Republican Party Platform, "...we honor the Constitution of the United States."
Below you will find how these fundamental ideas and core values apply to the "issues."
"...shall not be infringed." I believe in a human's right to their life and their ability to defend it.
I believe in a human's right to their life and to not be killed. By definition, life is the quality that distinguishes a vital and functional being from a dead body. Therefore, I believe that life begins at the heartbeat. No taxpayer funded abortion.
Only Congress has the authority to declare war per Article 1 of the Constitution. We cannot afford to police the world. If you understand the flawed economics of the Green New Deal then consider the same economic principles of American imperialism and nation building. We need to cut all taxpayer funded foreign aid and put America first again.
War on Drugs
I believe in a human's right to their liberty and to peacefully choose how they live their lives. This liberty is the fundamental objection of the idea that somebody else knows better than we do, how we should live our lives. As a proponent of small government, I don't think big government solutions are the answer.
Sorry, I mean climate change. Look, there is a lot of conflicting information out there. Remember Al Gore? It is a shame we only have eleven years and three months left to live, otherwise we could more thoroughly debate this...
Government programs, subsidies, and overregulation have failed. The solution is most certainly NOT more government programs, subsidies, and overregulation. Insurance companies and the big pharma lobby love medical price inflation as a result of this intervention.
Government programs, subsidies, and overregulation have failed. The solution is most certainly NOT more government programs, subsidies, and overregulation. Universities and administrators love the tuition price inflation as a result of this price inflation.
There are two types of immigration: There is legal immigration and there is illegal immigration. Respect those who respect the process, and let's continue improving the process. We should secure the border with appropriations from Congress per Article 1 of the Constitution of the United States.
Let's audit, then abolish the Federal Reserve. Why? Because of their failed history of intervention in markets, creation of artificial boom and bust cycles, and utter destruction of the money supply through currency inflation. This failed central planning has enabled the $22,000,000,000,000 national debt, bailouts, and a weaker dollar.
Taxes, Spending, and the Federal Budget
Individual and corporate taxes are too dang high! Federal spending is out of control! Why is it that we as individuals need to live within our means, yet the government continues to operate at a deficit and without a balanced budget? This is a bipartisan failure. We cannot tax our way out of this. Taxation is a moral dilemma and we should minimize the immorality of forcibly taking peoples' property.
Please let me know what you think! I welcome your questions, comments, and concerns. Looking forward to future dialogue.
