ISSUES

GUN RIGHTS

GUN RIGHTS

As your representative, I will fight to restore and protect gun rights!

 

Gun Control

Gun control laws only serve to help criminals and disarm law-abiding citizens.  So-called “gun free” zones should be renamed “criminal safe” zones as they strip individuals of their right to defend themselves, their family, their friends and their neighbors against those who wish to do harm.

 

The Second Amendment

The second amendment was drafted to ensure the American people could defend themselves against a tyrannical government. The founding fathers understood self-defense was a natural right.

 

“A well-regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” - Second Amendment to the Constitution

 

Constitutional Carry

Law abiding citizens, with the exception of the mentally ill and individuals who have been convicted of a violent crime, should not have to ask the government for permission to own or carry a weapon.

JOBS

JOBS
As your representative, I will fight to
stop government interference in the free market.

 

Politicians love to use buzzwords, but government doesn’t create JOBS.  We can build an atmosphere conducive to job creation by reducing taxes, lifting regulations, eliminating government programs, and returning jobs to the private sector where they belong.

 

Managing my Father’s construction company I have seen first hand the impact government has on his business. The convoluted tangle of government regulations, taxation, and bureaucracy has gotten out of control. 

TAXES

TAXES

 

“Everyone wants to live at the expense of the state. They forget that the state lives at the expense of everyone.” - Fredric Bastiat (1801-1850)    

 

Income Tax

As your representative, I will fight at every opportunity to reduce or eliminate taxes.  

 

I support the repeal of the state income tax in favor of a single flat tax. Your income is your property and if government forces you to relinquish your property, are you truly free?  To ask the question is to answer it.

 

Government, through the income tax, has in effect, laid claim to the fruits of your labor.

 

This progressive and unnecessary form of taxation goes fundamentally against the principles of a free society, and I believe it is government extortion, and immoral.  

 

We know the income tax is unnecessary because the following states do not have an income tax: Alaska, Florida, Nevada, New Hampshire, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Washington, and Wyoming do not have an income tax.

 

Want to keep more of your own property?  Let’s add Georgia to the list!    

 

Property Taxes

As your representative, I will fight to repeal property taxes.

 

If you fail to pay your property taxes, the government will seize your property and you will be evicted. In other words, you do not truly own property and are simply leasing it from the government. Government has once again laid claim to your property and forces payment through taxation.

 

How can we be free when we cannot live on our own property without paying rent to the government?  To ask the question is to answer it.    

 

Sales Tax

As your representative, I will support a flat tax only in the event that the state income tax and property taxes are eliminated.

 

Consumption taxation is the most moral and fair form of taxation, which allows the citizen the freedom to choose if, what, and how much they wish to consume. This method of levying taxes has the added benefit of incentivizing savings and conservation over consumption and waste.

PRO-LIFE

PRO-LIFE

As your representative, it is my duty to protect life at every chance. I believe life begins at conception and every life is precious and should be protected.

 

State Funding

I believe the state should not be involved in funding abortions; in effect, forcing citizens to participate against their conscience, by using tax dollars. At every opportunity, I will support efforts to cease government promotion and funding of measures that harm life.

 

Roe vs. Wade

The Long Arm of Washington with Roe vs. Wade is in direct violation of the 10th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.  This issue should be left up to each individual State for its citizens to decide.

 

Social Attitudes

At every chance it gets government seems to try and legislate morality, and the results are far from effective.  I believe raising awareness of the sanctity of life along with community outreach is necessary and more effective than government interference.

ETHICS

ETHICS

As your state representative, I will work to bring transparency and accountability to Georgia government.

 

Georgia is ranked one of the most corrupt of the 50 States.

 

Throughout my involvement in state politics, the need for more ethics in government has been blatantly apparent.  Cronyism, special interest, sense of entitlement, and outright corruption of many of those in power is unacceptable, to say the least. Elected officials are public servants, they should be held to a higher moral and ethical standard because of the power and authority we entrust them.

LAWS

LAWS

As your representative, I will fight to repeal unnecessary laws.  There are way too many already!

 

The rule of law is important but too many laws nowadays are ambiguous, vague, and arbitrary.

MARRIAGE

MARRIAGE

As your representative, I will fight to keep government out of marriage.

 

Government shouldn’t be involved in marriage. It should be left to private entities and individuals and the church.

EDUCATION

EDUCATION

As your representative, I will fight for school choice, local control, parental rights, and tax credits.

 

Parents should always have the freedom to choose the best educational method for their children whether they choose public, private, charter or homeschooling.

 

The Department of Education, No Child Left Behind, and Common Core have been detrimental to our students. Schools and teachers should have the flexibility to innovate and curriculum should be decided locally, the closer to home, the better.

 

Right now our children are learning that they are just another number in a system and how to take standardized tests, instead of learning how to think critically and independently. I believe lifting restrictive regulations and allowing more competition within the free market of education is the solution.

 

Homeschooling

As your representative, I will stand up for homeschooling and parental rights and support tax credits for educational expenses.

 

I believe in personal responsibility and ultimately the parent is responsible for their child’s education. I’m glad to see a rise in homeschooling over the past decade.
