I am a Christian. I am a Patriot. I am a business owner. I consider myself a conservative. But really, none of that matters. When it comes to passing laws for this great country, all that matters is right or wrong. Good and bad. Common sense or no sense.
Here are my commonsensical positions:
We can’t keep spending money we don’t have. Any law or policy that contradicts this is dangerous. The government can’t legislate morality. Any law that attempts to do this is a bad law. We are prohibited from passing laws that limit the freedoms of those whose freedom we are duty-bound to protect. Any law that does this is unconstitutional. Thomas Jefferson once said, “The government that governs best is the government that governs least.” I didn’t know Mr. Jefferson, but I do know he was right.
My personal life and interests don’t matter. My interest in my district does. I will represent my constituents in the best and most loyal manner I possibly can. You have sent me to Washington to do your bidding. I am beholden to no one but you. I have no interests than yours in mind. If that means I will serve only one term, then so be it. I had a life before Washington and will have a life afterwards.
In my humble opinion the most pressing issue our country faces, is our financial situation. Our financial policies are more vital to our survival than national security. We continue to spend money we don’t have and borrow to cover the difference. As any business owner or household knows, this cannot not work for long. We must balance our budget. Everything starts there. Borrowing money from the Federal Reserve only makes the problem worse. We are borrowing from ourselves, or printing money. That can only hasten the reckoning day. Regrettably, that day will soon come.
In order to do my job I need your support. Please write or contact me with your ideas and suggestions. I can’t do this without you. You sent me here and I want to help you. Government is supposed to help and not hinder. If there is any issue, problem or situation I need to look at to make your life easier and better please let me know. My team and I will take an active interest in resolving and correcting issues in your life. In fact, one of my most trusted aides, does nothing but that. He is the best. And he is yours. As am I. We are in this together.
