I believe our country is under attack, specifically the 1st & 2nd Amendments. These two amendments are foundational for the protection of our faith, families and freedoms. If we lose the 2nd Amendment, we will lose the 1st Amendment which is what the radical left is truly after. I am committed to defending our faith, families and freedoms by fighting to ensure the strength of the 1st & 2nd Amendments of the US Constitution.
I have and will say without apology, “Abortion is the greatest evil in our country with no close 2nd.” I will support Oklahoma's Constitutional right to nullify Roe v Wade to provide equal protection and guarantee the rights of the pre-born to have “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” Not only do I believe abortion needs to come to an end in America, but I will support Oklahoma streamlining the adoption process.
The Trump Administration policy of America First is the only way to have a strong United States. The role of any government is to serve its’ citizens not the citizens of another nation. I will always serve to put America First, not foreign powers looking to dismantle the United States from within.
The movement of tearing down statues like Abraham Lincoln, trying to replace Federal Holiday’s like Columbus Day and erasing books from Dr. Suess is a direct assault of our way of life. Trying to erase our history is trying to erase who we are. I will never bow to the #CancelCulture movement as some Republicans have.
The United States is on an unsustainable path with the national debt totaling $30 trillion dollars. The debt issue is an excessive spending problem coupled with massive amounts of waste, fraud and abuse. I believe we must implement conservative principles to reduce spending in order to balance our national budget. Not only do we need to reduce spending to tackle the national debt, but we must increase revenue not through more or higher taxes but through more taxpayers in order to have an economy that is not just surviving but thriving.
The issue of education is very important to me because my wife, Kendra, has been a public-school teacher in Oklahoma for years focusing on Special Needs students. School choice should be a right of every parent to decide where their children receive an education and by who. The curriculum that is taught to each student should be determined by local school districts and not bureaucrats in Washington DC.
The 2020 Presidential election proved something that most already knew, the US election system needs accountability across the spectrum. Although some politicians have apologized for questioning fraud for their own political purposes, it is clear that there was massive voter fraud in 2020 unlike any other election. A voter ID needs to be required for all elections without question.
A strong military that is well supported and funded by the federal government is necessary for the times that we are living. Peace through Strength is a philosophy that I believe to be true. Not only should our military be well funded but our veterans who have served and sacrificed should be well taken care of. My grandfather served in the Vietnam War and I’ve witnessed first-hand the difficulties in VA care. This should not be the case. A top priority of the federal government should be supporting the military as well as the veterans who have given so much for the United States.
Since its’ inception 85 years ago, millions of Americans have sent their taxpayer dollars into the Social Security program with the understanding that one day upon retirement it would be there to help. Unfortunately, corrupt and incompetent public officials have wasted and abused the funds that were meant to be used by those who have funded the program with their tax dollars. I will fight ensure and protect the Social Security Program.
