    Limited Government: 
    • The fundamental principles of limited government are rooted in the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights.  
    • All elected public servants, who take an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States, must refrain from taking any action or passing any legislation that is not constitutionally empowered to their elected office.  A fantastic method for evaluating legislation is the CHIPS Hold 'Em or Fold 'Em Legislation Test!  (The CHIPS legislative test requires legislation to pass 4 simple tests in order to render support for passage:  1.  Is the legislation moral?  2. Is the legislation constitutional?  3.  Is the legislation affordable?  4.  Is the legislation both needed and wanted by the legal taxpaying American citizen?

    Tenth Amendment:
    • Under the tenth amendment, individual states have the constitutional right to govern their state and the policies affecting its citizens.

    Education:  
    • Effective education policy requires returning authority to the states and empowering parents opportunity to choose a safe and effective education for their children from among public, private, charter, and home school opportunities as the clear objective.
    • Common Core fails the CHIPS legislation test as follows:  Common Core is immoral.  It allows the federal government to collect data on our children and their families which can be used by any government entity during our children’s childhood years and later in life.  It violates both the child’s and parent’s privacy rights.  Common Core is unconstitutional.  The Constitution does not numerate this as one of the powers of the federal government.  Common Core is not affordable and adds millions of dollars in expenses to already stressed state budgets.   Common Core is not necessary nor is it both wanted & needed by the people.   Rather, it is wanted by special interest groups, politicians, and bureaucrats.   
    • A. 

      I Agree

    • B. 

      I Disagree

  • 5. 
    Second Amendment:
    • Gun ownership is responsible citizenship, enabling Americans to defend themselves, their property, and their communities.
    • Gun ownership is protected by the Second Amendment of the Constitution.  As the Framers knew well, a government that does not trust its honest, law-abiding, taxpaying citizens with the means of self-defense is not itself worthy of trust.
    • Laws disarming honest citizens proclaim that the government is the master, not the servant, of the people.

    • B. 

      I Disagree

    Judiciary:  
    • The judicial branch of our federal government, and that of our state, must recognize that it is not a  co-equal branch of government nor a "super legislative body".  
    • The core mission of the judiciary is to protect the historically recognized constitutional rights of the people.  Judges should be arbiters of conflict not public policy makers.

      I Agree

    • B. 

      I Disagree

  • 7.

      I Agree

    • B. 

      I Disagree

  • 8. 
    Entitlements:
    • The entitlement mentality which permeates our state and society must be reversed.  Welfare payments have the destructive effect of eroding marriage and work ethic in low-income communities.  
     
    • A. 

      I Agree

    • B. 

      I Disagree

  • 9. 
    Armed Forces:  
    • Our military and veterans deserve our honor and appreciation for all they have endured and sacrificed for our country.  A most gracious way to ensure our armed forces stay strong is to meet our obligations to our Veterans.

      I Agree

    • B.

    Immigration:
    • Legal immigration is a blessing to this country and the only honorable pathway for foreign immigrants to obtain American Citizenship.     
    • Law enforcement agencies must use all available resources to deport from the state any illegal alien convicted or involved in a serious crime or illegal activity.
    • I support  (conceptually) the merits of the SECURE America Plan:  STOP sanctuary policies and incentive programs to entice illegal immigration to any city, county or state.  ENFORCE the existing laws already on the books!  CUT the transfer of benefits to illegal immigrants.  UTILIZE state and local law enforcement agencies to report arrested illegal immigrants to ICE.  REPEAL laws that reward illegal immigrants at the expense of tax payers such as in-state tuition rates.  E-VERIFY as in require businesses to use E-Verify to ensure that their workforce is legal.

      I Disagree

  • 20. 
    Property Rights:
    • Private property rights are essential to individual liberty.  
    • The act of seizing private property for economic development should be highly scrutinized.  Eminent domain is intended for essential public purposes only!  
    • If the action is truly an essential public purpose, the action should only occur as the result of a legislative act requiring passage by both local & state government.     
    • I oppose Agenda 21(the encroachment of the UN in the laws and policies of the SOVEREIGN USA) as it is immoral, unconstitutional, not affordable, and not necessary.

    • Government at all levels must implement responsible fiscal policy.  I support the concept of a balanced budget amendment.

    • A. 

      I Agree

    • B. 

      I Disagree

  • 23. 
    Earmarks:
    • Comprehensive Earmark reform is needed.  
    • The use of Federal earmarks should be seldom and solely for the purpose of national projects.    
    • Federal earmarks should not be awarded to private individuals or companies unless they have engaged in a very public and transparent bidding process for a project to benefit the entire nation.

  • 25. 
    Tax Reform:
    • I believe the IRS Tax Code, in excess of 76,000 pages, is exorbitantly convoluted, inefficient, labor intensive, and in great need of reform.  I support the movement to repeal the 16th Amendment & abolish the IRS.
    • I support the Fair Tax Fix:  1.  The Fair Tax is moral because it taxes consumption whereas taxing production & savings is immoral.   2. The Fair Tax is constitutional.  If the Fair Tax were implemented as designed we would be able to repeal the 16th amendment and abolish the IRS.  This would provide a level playing field for everyone (equal treatment under the law for all).   3. The Fair Tax is affordable.  Not only does the Fair Tax eliminate the favor factory, it substantially reduces corruption.  The Fair Tax reduces billions of dollars currently allocated to the collection of taxes by more than 90% and would generate more revenue than the current immoral tax system.   4. The Fair Tax is both needed & wanted by the legal taxpaying American citizen.  The Fair Tax brings prosperity to all.
    • A. 

      I Agree

    • B. 

      I Disagree
