… can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are the gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with his wrath? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just: that his justice cannot sleep for ever.” 

Thomas Jefferson, in Notes on the State of Virginia

Platform

The Constitution

There is no such thing as a living document. There is only such a thing as living beings who alter documents.

The Constitution cannot be used against itself.

Free Speech

Enough bullying! Enough of intolerant, one-sided leadership claiming to be the bastion of free speech as they trample opposing views! Enough of the thought police destroying people as they criticize thought police! Enough of hateful actions by those who claim they fight hatred! In short ... enough!

Open discourse must be open.

Immigration and the Border

Do those who believe in wide open borders throw their doors open before going to bed at night? Why not?


A wall enhances security by closing a door. And this is good for EVERYONE.


To remedy all future issues, open a new version of Ellis Island. 

Property Rights

In taking a home due to the inability to pay a tax, govt. declares all property is govt. property. 

End this practice, and a foundation is set that can also help protect against "legal" home invasions where just cause does not exist. 


Abortion

How can we instill a resdpect for life when there is no respect for life? 


Biblically, John the Baptist was six months older than Jesus, and he leapt in the womb at His presence. He leapt at the presence of Jesus, not a lump of cells. Scientifically, there is measurable electrical activity at conception.

Life begins at conception. 

This is about information, which brings us back to free speech.

The V.A.

Establish a hiring preference for the wives and husbands of soldiers - especially front-line soldiers.
They truly understand the need for a caring and efficient agency.

Religious Liberty

If it is to be considered free speech to take God's name in vain, then it must be considered free speech to take God's name in faith.


When a nation's heart is darkened, it is suicidal to try and dim the Light.

The 2nd Amendment

"I ask who are the militia? They consist now of the whole people, except a few public officers."
- George Mason, June 4, 1788 

 "... all power is inherent in the people; that they may exercise it by themselves; that it is their right and duty to be at all times armed."
- Thomas Jefferson, June 5, 1824   

Taxes

Since the middle ages, it has been recognized that high taxes drive away business and quell the motivation to start new businesses. When will we ever learn?


Maintain a competitive corporate tax, consider an alternative to the income tax, and remember that there is no such thing as government money.

EPA

With the states forming their own EPAs, the federal EPA has become redundant. 

Reduce its purpose to a mediator in disputes between states, a provider of research assistance when requested, and a provider of grants and loans.

Term Limits, 17 and Litigation

Limit terms to 16 years total between both Houses.


Nix the 17th Amendment.


Simplify the litigation process. A complex process brings confusion. To what purpose does this confusion work?
