Issues & Priorities
Term limits are one of the most important issues that needs renovation. Congress is slow to make progress because of professional politicians in control of Congress and the Senate.
Members spend their entire lives in politics, becoming rich while in office or after because of their influence. Term limits could put an end to this and give other citizens the opportunity to bring new ideas to both Houses. My stance on term limits is this: Congress should be limited to six two-year terms, and the Senate should be limited to two six-year terms. Twelve years in either House should be a substantial amount of time for a politician to make progress. It is of utmost importance that we have new ideas, and to stop gridlock. Ideally, I would like to see Congressional terms extended to four years.
Unfortunately, two-year terms keep politicians campaigning non-stop to stay in office. Four-year terms should be enough time to accomplish goals and break up the continuous campaigning. Other political positions— the president, governors, mayors—have term limits, so Congress and the Senate should as well. Term limits should also be placed on the Supreme Court. There should be no lifetime appointments. We need people to serve elected and re-elected, I commit to only being a Congressman for twelve years. Unlike other politicians, I will practice what I preach.
I am a Pro-Life candidate. I believe we have followed the constitution on the issue by overturning Roe v Wade and putting it to the states. One day in the future I am sure abortion will be a thing of the past.
My stance on budget is to cut the budget and push a balanced budget amendment. Recent budget cuts only cut projected spending or cut increases; however, I believe we need to cut the budget and live within our means. Our Congressman Mike Ezell voted for the Debt Ceiling increase and our debt went from 32 trillion dollars to 33 trillion dollars Raising the debt ceiling vote means that it can go up 4 to 5 trillion dollars by January 2025 to as high as 36 trillion dollars. I would not have voted to increase the debt ceiling. We have over 200 trillion dollars in unfunded liabilities, that we can not pay. We are as a country for all purposes bankrupt. We can make common sense solutions to solve our budget.
As a businessman for forty years, I’m knowledgeable on how to manage a budget. We need to seek out areas in our budget that we can cut and make hard decisions.
As a country, we waste trillions of dollars in fraud, waste, and abuse in all our welfare programs and Medicare. Logically speaking, our money is better spent on enforcement, which in turn can eliminate fraud and save us trillions of dollars.
Also, we need to discuss all options to save Medicare and Social Security. This topic is often avoided, and that is why we need strong leaders who aren’t afraid to tackle tough issues.
My stance on immigration is that we need to build a wall but with entry ports. We need labor, and immigrants provide labor. It’s not about cost because they make good money in the United States and send it back home. We need labor that will do the jobs Americans don’t or won’t do, such as picking fruits and vegetables.
We can streamline the process and keep a record of every immigrant in the United States by using verification processes like Clear and TSA Pre. Every immigrant must pass a background check, get fingerprinted, submit a retinal scan, and submit their personal information. Once everything is set up, they can be issued an identification card that they use to enter and leave the United States. This way, we can keep track of the comings and goings of immigrants. The information they submit will be given to our law enforcement databases, in case a crime is committed so they can be identified and deported. We will bill them a thousand dollars a year for this service; this fee will pay for border enforcement and expenses to run the program. The fee is inexpensive in comparison to the money some immigrants spend to have a mule bring them into our country.
We need to end chain migration, be stricter on asylum seekers, and end birthright citizenship. Like many government programs, Americans are getting taken advantage of and costing taxpayers billions. We need to change catch and release to catch and return immediately if immigrants do not enter legally.
We need to take the 87,000 IRS agents that Biden hired to harass Americans and make them ICE agents. Task them with rounding up the Biden illegal immigrants and sending them back to Mexico. Not the countries they came from but back to Mexico. Once Mexico gets a couple million illegals returned to them they will probably build a wall on their side of the border.
Eliminate Federal Departments
I believe we need to move as much power back to the states as possible. Who is better to serve their citizens than the state government they live under? Institutions such as insurance, education, labor, EPA, Medicare, Medicaid, and welfare would be better served at the state level. I would support defunding the Department of education on day one. There are also over 70,000 empty unused offices and buildings that we should divest ourselves from. Saving billions of dollars.
What works in California does not work in Mississippi, and we probably do not want it anyway. Fifty establishments working to solve problems within their state works more efficiently than one establishment.
I believe we need to decentralize the government and give more power to the states; ultimately, this shift in power will also help balance the budget.
High schools and colleges should be advising our children to the degree that best suits the student. Most students are unsure of what they want to be and, because of lack of assistance, get degrees they never use. With research and advisement, we can guide students to the degree that best suits their strengths and goals.
We should also alter the cost of degrees to the value of the degree. If you are going to school to be a doctor or lawyer, you will be making an income that will allow you to pay back your loans. If you are getting a degree, such as interior design, that makes thirty thousand a year, how will you afford to pay back a hundred-thousand-dollar loan?
The degree should not cost more than the one-year average salary of the job you will get with the degree.
Yes, climate change isn’t a conservative issue. Yet we as Republicans have to take over the narrative. Democrats have been running the narrative on climate change for over 4 decades and spent trillions of dollars. Yet still, the world is supposed to come to an end by 2030. All that money spent and according to Democrats, it’s not enough.
As Republicans, we should give a common-sense solution that would suppress the fears of our youth and bring them into the Republican Party. There are common sense solutions that don’t cost money (which means no one wants them) and will fix what Democrats say about our carbon dioxide issue. One solution is to expand regenerative farming. This captures the CO2 in the soil, which is a good thing instead of releasing it into the atmosphere. This type of farming is being done already and expanding rapidly. Walmart and Whole Foods have both gotten behind this. The next solution is to grow industrial hemp. Yes, industrial hemp besides all the uses for hemp also absorbs CO2. Industrial hemp sequesters more CO2 from the atmosphere by double or triple than trees do. Industrial hemp takes 90 to 120 days to grow, unlike trees which take 30 to 40 years. There is research going on right now to show planting industrial hemp will bring the temperatures down. The best part is if we need to reverse this it’s easy to do. Climate change enthusiasts have pushed dirty solar panels that can’t be recycled, dirty wind turbines that kill endangered birds, and skylines with blades that can’t be recycled. As well as electric cars, all of these Democrat solutions are manufactured with rare earth minerals. Mined in 3rd world countries by slave labor and child workers. The effects of mining rare earth also is an environmental disaster. They don’t tell you that when pushing their narrative of climate change. And who is the beneficiary of our climate change agenda? China! All of these are made mostly in China. Batteries, rare earth, and solar panels come from China.
We have let the Democrats and politicians run the narrative on this issue as well. Closing the country down and spending trillions to keep people home. There is a common-sense solution to stop pandemics. There is a company that has a system that you can install in schools, hospitals, and adult care facilities that can stop the spread. Once installed the machine shoots out molecules that attach themselves to salmonella, e-coli, COVID, and flu viruses and render them neutral in the air and on surfaces. Again this is another common sense solution to a problem that doesn’t cost trillions of dollars by the taxpayers.
Education is one of the most important issues we need to fix. Our kids are being indoctrinated on CRT. This will not get our kids the education that they will need to succeed in the 21st century. We need to go back to the basics. Teach math, science, history, and biology. We need to lead in education and stop poisoning their minds with gender ideology. There is only a man and a woman, there are no other genders. We need to bring prayer and the pledge of allegiance back to schools. We need to teach kids about the greatness of America and get away from the hate America is being taught now.
It is a right to own a gun and protect yourself and your family, period! There is no need to make gun laws to enforce the 99.99 percent of legal gun owners who commit no crimes. We do need to enforce our laws and penalize criminals with long prison sentences. We need to rein in these rogue judges, DAs, prosecutors, and the DOJ who want to let criminals out and punish victims.
