Politics

I have alternately been called an Aristocrat and a Democrat. I am neither. I am a Christocrat.

— Benjamin Rush

Founding Father

As a Christian and constitutionalist, I wish to focus on the principles of Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. Leftists, progressives, and R.I.N.O.’S assault each one of these foundational principles. If elected, I will defend and reinvigorate these principles.

Life:

Regarding abortion, I am powerfully pro-life, and I believe that every human being is made in the image of God.

Marriage and family: As a Christian I also believe that we are created to live as God intended us to. The nuclear family has been attacked repeatedly and needs to be protected. I will do that in the legislature, and I will encourage others to stand up and be the change.

Liberty:

Autonomy and Freedom. Our founding fathers in the constitution state, “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.” Yet repeatedly over the last few years we have seen the erosion of Rights and freedom of the individual. Rights are not given by the government they are given by God and therefore cannot be taken away by tyranny. Unelected officials and bureaucrats hold too much power and need to be reined in. I propose that any directive given by unelected officials, must go through the legislative process meeting a 2/3rds majority.

Additionally, all mandates to force compliance should perpetually be seen as unconstitutional and rejected.

Furthermore, our state cannot maintain its belief in the integrity of elections if there isn’t strict protection of the ballot box. More transparency in the process is necessary. Also, requirements for identification must be adopted.

Our country cannot be free if our children are not moral and loving of their country. School choice will allow parents to raise their children as they see fit and increase their bargaining power to inform what their children learn in public, private and homeschooling. The curriculum of public schools must teach truthful history and foster the American and Biblical concepts of Truth, Freedom, Equality, Reverence, and Duty to God, country, and one another. We must reject modern racism found in C.R.T. and the sexualizing of children. Let them focus on whatever is “good, noble, honorable… etc.”

Pursuit of Happiness:

Costs of Living. There is a rather sad situation in America specifically Nebraska and our counties in this district that the price of housing, food, gas and other necessities are rising fast, while our income is not. There are multiple factors that all play into this, but Nebraska and other states must take action to help citizens by removing obstacles. My plan is to have our state join others in pushing for American energy independence. This will cut a variety of rising costs like gas, heating, petroleum products, shipping costs etc.

Additionally, I would push for a review of the housing market. Affordable housing should not be unattainable for anyone who works hard. There should be more emphasis and incentives given to property ownership and good stewardship.

I would also support greater opportunities for bringing jobs to smaller communities like Utica, Seward, York, or Milford. Hopefully increasing the wages available for anyone willing to work by competition and benefits packages designed to attract great workers.

Security and “peace through strength:”
Preparedness is extremely important. I support more funding to law enforcement designated to specialized training and equipment. I also support everyone’s right to self-defense as prescribed in the second amendment. I whole heartedly support efforts to secure our country’s southern border and to reform immigration.

Purpose and Hope:

It would be a shame to not to take this opportunity to share with you the most important stance I can have. I am a Christian and I believe God has given a purpose and has a plan for each of us. Therefore, I support a greater return to the principles of honesty, decency and morality that made America what it was. I am saved by faith in Jesus Christ and that gives me immensely more purpose than what I would contrive for myself and informs all policies and decisions I will make.
