ON THE ISSUES
“These quotes from the Declaration of Independence, the Washington State Constitution, and the Constitution of the United States of America are what I believe to be the role of a Congressman.
“To secure the individual rights of Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness, Governments are instituted among Men.”
“…governments are established to protect and maintain individual rights.”
“The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government.”
Burdensome regulation and government intrusion in citizens’ everyday life is out of control. The government’s role is to protect and maintain individual rights, honor and support the Constitution, and secure life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. I will fight to limit the power of the federal government and return it to the basic tenets outlined by the constitution.
Our country can not continue to spend money that we do not have. I will fight for a balanced budget amendment to ensure our future generations are not saddled with out-of-control debt.
Americans are overtaxed and under-serviced. I will fight to lower taxes so the families in my district can keep more of their hard-earned income.
Create an environment wherein free enterprise, free market, hard work, and virtuous capitalism will once again allow every US citizen who wants to experience positive growth and prosperity. Free Enterprise, Free Market, Virtuous Capitalism, and hard-working US citizens have made us the wealthiest nation.
Law and Order
The efforts to defund the police we are seeing all over the country threaten the security and safety of every American. These radical ideas do nothing but create more issues, panic, and divide us as a nation. I will fight for our law enforcement communities and the safety of all Americans.
To protect American interests. Sometimes, though, it is necessary to protect those that cannot protect themselves against ruthless dictators. We must be willing to fight terrorists in their homeland to keep them from attacking us in our homeland.
We must remain allies of Israel. We must continue to support Israel. We must continue to defend Israel.
America must be seen as strong so that any enemy who would consider attacking America, its interests, or its allies would know beforehand that they would be deeply sorry that they did so because there would be a high price to pay. The best offense is a strong defense. Adequate military spending is extremely important. We must maintain a strong military.
I am a pro-life leader. I think the only exception to carrying a baby to full term would be to save the life of the mother. I will always be an advocate for the unborn and fight for their opportunity to life.
The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. Honest, law-abiding U.S. Citizens’ gun rights should never be limited.
