Taking on the Establishment
Having never run for office before, I did not jump at the opportunity to run for Congress this year. I prayerfully weighed the decision with my wife and family, and I sought advice from friends and colleagues. I filed for Congress on the last day, because I don’t believe we can expect anything to change as long as we keep sending people with political resumes to solve our problems.
It’s time to take on the Establishment. We cannot send another politician to Washington with so much riding on this election. We need men and women in Congress who are willing to make the tough decisions it will take to solve problems – no matter how the liberal media and the politically correct Establishment react. Now is the time to take a stand and get things done.
I am running for Congress to serve my community and defend our conservative values. Freedom, the family, and fiscal responsibility are under attack like never before. Taking a stand will make a difference, because I wholeheartedly believe what Franklin Graham recently advised me about public service, “If you are in this for the right reasons, you don’t need to compromise.”
America is the “shining city on a hill” because of its freedom, yet today liberals are waging an unrelenting assault on freedom. I will stand up to their assault and protect our constitutional freedoms.
We deserve freedom from oppression, both foreign and domestic. Unlike President Obama, I am willing to call Islamic terrorism our enemy and I will fight it from getting a foothold around the world. When America is strong, the world is safer.
Our federal government is too big, plain and simple. Excessive debt, red tape, and taxes stifle job growth. Look no further than Obamacare for a stifling, big-government program that is wreaking havoc on our economy and health care. I will do everything I can to repeal every word of Obamacare and replace it with patient-centered reforms.
President Obama has made it his mission to eliminate our gun rights, and as the owner of a gun store and range, I know how wrongheaded his ideas are. Law-abiding citizens are not the problem, and I will stand strong for the rights guaranteed to each of us by the 2nd Amendment.
Helping Families Thrive
My faith compels me to serve others, to love as Christ loved us, and to obey God rather than man. Politics doesn’t have to be nasty and cruel. We should treat each other with respect, kindness, and love. But our faith doesn’t ignore the crumbling walls around us. Our faith asks us to step forward and advocate for policies that help families to thrive.
I will evaluate each vote by its effect on families. I am 100% pro-life and pro-family. I will fight for the right to life of the unborn and defend marriage as an institution of one man and one woman. I also will protect religious freedom for individuals, businesses, nonprofits, and churches, because our country is as strong as our families and faiths are strong.
Every child deserves an education that makes the most of their God-given talent. Parents should have an opportunity to educate their child in the best public, private, or homeschool environment that they choose. Programs like Common Core illustrate the absurdity of putting Washington DC bureaucrats in charge of classrooms, instead of parents, teachers, and principals.
Insisting on Fiscal Responsibility
We deserve better from our federal government. With an alarming debt and broken entitlement programs, we cannot keep kicking the can down the road. We must embrace policies which reduce the spirit of entitlement while rewarding hard work.
Taxes are too high and costs are rising, because politicians won’t make the tough decisions to root out corruption and waste from government. I am outraged by the many families suffering because of bureaucratic incompetence in the VA. Many of my team members at ProShots are veterans and wounded warriors, so I will not tolerate excuses or look the other way when it affects those who have dedicated their lives to protecting our homeland.
Fiscal responsibility is not just a good idea for Washington DC. For our country to lead the world, we must encourage personal and household financial responsibility and embrace policies that lead to superior long-term global competitiveness. The economy, and every American consumer, benefits when we do.
