Here is one of the most important bills to be voted on this session. This bill would not only protect Idaho citizens from the threat of constitutional violations, but it would also demonstrate to the federal government that we are not going to put up with them attempting to run …
Personal Rights (Guns, Religion, etc.)
I believe everyone has the right to do what they please, as long as their actions do not infringe on the rights of other people. I believe government has no place in personal rights beyond protecting them for the individual. I support the freedom of religion, the right to private property, the Second Amendment, and marriage. I do not believe in or support abortion.
I believe proper rehabilitation and reintegration for offenders is vital to our community. Many of our fellow citizens suffer from drug addiction, mental health issues, or emotional tragedies. It is important to help them and reintegrate them back into our communities safely. I support alternative sentencing for victimless offenders.
I believe the education of our future generations should not be controlled by the Federal Government, but should instead be cultivated at a local level. I believe in the freedom of school choice, and I am a strong advocate for private education. I stand against common core.
I believe in a free market system for healthcare. I advocate the abolition of state or government interference in Idahoans’ choices for protecting themselves and their families.
I am a committed advocate for states’ rights. Individuals should have control over their local governments without the overarching and unneeded influence of the Federal Government. I want to cut the strings the Federal Government has attached to us with its funding and make Idaho more self-supporting. Idaho is a family, and it is a common value among Idahoans to protect their families first and foremost. This has been an important value in my house from my childhood through today.
Economics and Taxes
I believe in economic freedom and open markets with minimal barriers to entry. I believe state licensure mandates and regulations on businesses and entrepreneurs are more of a hindrance than a help. Businesses should have the right to prosper just as they should have the right to fail. I support minimal taxes and a simple tax system. Taxation beyond what is needed is theft, as well as waste, fraud, and abuse by either citizens or government.
