I am a Limited-Government Conservative Republican

In Congress, I will fight to protect your right to keep and bear arms, work to stop government interference in the free market, stand firm to defend life at every chance, advocate to reduce or eliminate taxes, and advocate getting the federal government out of our children’s education. 

I’ll most assuredly bring transparency and accountability to government by explaining all my important votes like I’ve done these past four years, and I’ll be sure to let you know What’s Really Going on in DC. 

Gun Rights

As your Congressman, I will fight to restore and protect gun rights!

Gun control laws only serve to help criminals and disarm law-abiding citizens. So-called “gun free” zones should be renamed “criminal safe” zones as they strip individuals of their right to defend themselves, their family, their friends and their neighbors against those who wish to do harm.

The second amendment was drafted to ensure the American people could defend themselves against a tyrannical government. The founding fathers understood self-defense was a natural right.

“A well-regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” – Second Amendment to the Constitution.

Jobs

As your Congressman, I will fight to stop government interference in the free market.

Politicians love to use buzzwords, but government doesn’t create jobs, people create jobs. We need to unleash America’s private sector. We can build an atmosphere conducive to job creation by reducing taxes, lifting regulations, and eliminating government programs. 

Running the family’s construction company with my father I have seen first hand the impact government has on our business. The convoluted tangle of government regulations, taxation, and bureaucracy has gotten out of control.

I support a fair or flat tax and ending government handouts across the board such as bailouts, corporate subsidies, perpetual debt and so-called stimulus spending. We shouldn’t be giving out billions of dollars of taxpayer money in corporate welfare. It’s literally the tool that career politicians use to give their buddies handouts and stay in power.

Pro-Life

As your Congressman, it is my duty to defend life at every chance. 

I believe life begins at conception and every life is precious and should be protected.

I believe the goverment should not be involved in funding abortions; in effect, forcing individuals to participate against their conscience, by using tax dollars. At every opportunity, I will support efforts to cease government promotion and funding of measures that harm life.

At every chance it gets government seems to try and legislate morality, and the results are far from effective. I believe raising awareness of the sanctity of life along with community outreach is necessary and more effective than government interference.

Taxes

As your Congressman, I will fight to reduce or eliminate taxes.

Taxes are too high and the tax code is too complicated. End the IRS, and repeal the income tax. I support replacing them with a simpler, flatter & fairer tax system. High taxes and huge bureaucracies like the IRS stifle innovation, prevent savings, destroy production, and discourage investment. You have the right to the fruits of your labor.

Everyone wants to live at the expense of the state. They forget that the state lives at the expense of everyone.” – Fredric Bastiat

Education

As your Congressman, I will fight for local control and parental rights.

Parents should always have the freedom to choose the best educational method for their children whether they choose public, private, charter or homeschooling.

The Department of Education, No Child Left Behind, and Common Core have been detrimental to our students. Schools and teachers should have the flexibility to innovate and curriculum should be decided locally, the closer to home, the better.

Right now our children are learning that they are just another number in a system and how to take standardized tests, instead of learning how to think critically and independently. I believe education needs to be returned to the state level.
