U.S. Congress Tennessee Distirct 7 Candidate
I believe that God gave us our rights and that the only purpose of the Federal Government is to protect those rights. Our forefathers wrote the Constitution to limit the government. They did not want the government to be able to infringe on the rights of the people. My political beliefs are much in line with the Constitution Party of Tennessee. My platform is the United States Constitution.
I am running because our current Congressman, Marsha Blackburn, either does not understand the U.S. Constitution or simply chooses to ignore it. She calls herself a conservative republican, but her votes in Congress do not match her rhetoric.
I will oppose any bill/proposal that is NOT Constitutional. I will oppose any bill that would increase the size, reach, or cost of government. If it increases the liberty of the individual, I will support it. Unlike our current representative, I will vote for less spending and less government.
I will vote to cut spending on Foreign Aid. Nowhere in the Constitution have I found that we are to give our tax dollars to other nations. People have the freedom to give to other nations if they so choose, but do not take money intended for the operation of our government and give it to other nations.
I will not support the United Nations. I believe sending your tax dollars to the United Nations is un-Constitutional. I will vote to get us out of the World Trade Organization and will vote against any trade bill, such as CAFTA or the FTAA. Trade agreements like these are dangerous and threaten to override the laws of our country. I believe in keeping our country a sovereign nation.
Other Un-Constitutional spending that I will not vote for includes education, energy, labor, health and human services, and transportation. This type of spending is not allowed by the federal Constitution and belongs at the state level or should not be done by the government, period.
Our political representatives should be good stewards of our tax dollars, spending money responsibly and with discretion. I also believe that money should not influence votes, which is why I currently am not accepting money from any PAC, Political Party, Corporation, or from individuals. I ask only for your vote and support. With your help, we can put Constitutional Conservatives in the U.S. Congress and turn this great country back to a
Thank you and God Bless
