The Issues.

My view on how government should run is very simple.  Government should not tell us how to live our lives, or tell us how to spend our money.  Those elected to government are not our rulers, they are our employees.

My stance on many issues are below.   To help explain these points, illustrations have been included.

  • Eminent Domain
  • You bought the property when it was for sale, if you don’t want to sell it, the government shouldn’t be able to take it to build a new shopping mall, or hotel.  There are exceptions to this rule, but it is only to be used in the case of necessity.

  • Lower Taxes
  • You did the work, you earned your money, it should be yours to keep.
  • How much of every dollar you earn do you feel you should be able to keep?

  • Limited Government
  • Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely.  Each aspect Government controls of your life is one less aspect you control of your own life.
  • Those who we elect to office are not our rulers, but our employees.

  • Personal Choice and Responsibility
  • It’s your life, you should make your own choices, and you should also accept responsibility when you make the wrong choices.

  • Pro-Small Business
  • Small business owners create jobs, and stabilize communities.  They should be thanked, not taxed.
  • Small business owners are the ones who do actively improve our communities.  Small business owners want their community to be healthy, because without a healthy community, their businesses struggle.  We should not over-regulate those who are actively fighting to help their community.

  • Gun Owner Rights
  • The right to bare arms is an American right, and no one should be able to take that away from you.
  • Bad people will always have guns.  We cannot expect our citizens who follow the law to be left unarmed in a bad situation.  Responsible gun ownership protects everybody.

  • Lifestyle Respect
  • Freedom.  Liberty.  It’s your life, it’s your lifestyle.  The government cannot judge what lifestyle habits are wrong.
  • When Government inserts itself into any aspect of your life, Government displaces God.  Holy matrimony is a contract between a man, a woman, and God.  The Government should recognize civil unions between any two people, but it should not be a substitute in a marriage for God.

  • Marijuana Legalization
  • Clinically-proven, all-natural, and effective painkiller.  It’s your body, it’s your choice.
  • Prohibition of marijuana is not working.  We are filling our prisons up with non-violent offenders and leading them towards a life of a career criminal.  Regulation of marijuana, in the same way we regulate wine, would be an immediate boost to our tax-base, and a safe and effective way to control the use.
