The single greatest thing I can do right now for my country is to stand up for our Constitutional Rights in the face of tyranny. The basic rights of our Constitution were trampled on under the guise of emergency and empowered by fear. WE THE PEOPLE are the keepers of the Constitution in which the framers wrote specifically for times like this. Our well-being and healthcare and that of our children are in no one else’s hands before our own.
WE THE PEOPLE choose our elected officials to govern, and we reserve the Constitutional right to recall them. “Influence is not government.” As an elected official I am mindful of this.
It is my goal to stand against government overreach and stand for my constituents on the frontline against it. We the People means all of us. All party affiliations I represent will have my service in protecting their rights. The greatness of America hinges on standing for our rights as one. I intend to honor our sovereign nation and its greatness. And serve with the people's Constitutional Rights always first.
One of my goals is to help close the divide our country resides in. Debate, I have found to be healthy for our Constitutional Republic. Through hard honest debate we find the truths we need to choose great leadership.
It is an honored position to represent the public and the process in which elected officials are chosen. Is of utmost importance. Voter Integrity should be first and foremost if we wish to bring our country to better times. We are capable of putting men on the moon and we are capable of having secure elections EVERYONE can feel are fair. I will work toward this with unbiased integrity and grit.
Today's average American is feeling the worst strain I've seen in our lifetime. The price of gas, groceries and interest rates are like nothing ever before. Yet we are funding 200 billion to two different wars? Were these wars voted on by Congress? Think of what we could do investing for return with those billion...into our cities? Our open border is a show of lawless leadership and a globalist vision of a socialist society. I often ask myself what is the solution to the problem? We have great natural resources, wealth, businesses and work ethic. Yet, mismanagement by this administration has caused this inflation we are now in.
I find the problem is in our leadership and it's poor globalist direction. America is the most giving nation by far in the World. A strong America is a strong planet. Globalist policies have created a poorer nation and class warfare. The backbone of our nation is the middle class which provides so much for us all. This direction we are in now is weakening their abilities to prosper. A poorer nation will see a higher crime rate. America needs opportunity and the guise of globalism is not our answer to greatness. Opportunity for ALL Americans as a sovereign nation is.
Pennsylvania is known for their natural resources. Due to policies set forth by Green Initiatives. We are weakening our opportunity for prosperity. Under the guise of global warming. Pennsylvanians are poorer. From my travels abroad to poor nations over 18 years. I learned. The wealthier the nation the cleaner. This is commonsense as the starving people care little if none about the environment. They are just trying to survive. We must use our Natural Gas resources in Pa. We have an abundance of very clean burning NATURAL GAS below us. Recently I pulled our state Amphibian the "Hell Bender" from the waters of French Creek. They need very clean waters to live. This is a testament to gas and oil industry here. We can burn clean natural gas and protect our environment too this shows me. I do not support Battery farms, solar farms or the likes that cause very bad burning fires that often can't be put out. Ad to this the minerals mined in Congo with child labor is atrocious. Pa. has a great resource of energy and clean burning fuel for extraction safely. I stand for prosperity in natural resources and clean energy.
Education is critical, now more than ever. Statistics according to APNEWS.com show an 8 point historic decline in math and reading.
Parents showed their concerns in what was being taught and were silenced in many cases. I am fully in favor of getting back to teaching reading, writing and arithmetic - the skills needed to become productive adults vs gender identity and CRT.
Those are not issues that should be addressed by anyone but the parents and professionals that they choose to involve.
I will work to find property tax relief for seniors. Seniors on fixed incomes are struggling to keep their homes. Nobody should be taxed out of their home because legislators look at property owners as a blank check. It's time for the legislators to cut their budgets, just as homeowners are forced to when their expenses go up, yet income remains the same.
My time on the farm and with the Navy Seals taught me much about discipline, leadership, attention to detail, working with others and why I love my country. I've met so many great Patriots, with many being foreigners halfway across the world. They loved the idea of America. They would dream aloud to me about being here and having the opportunities we do. After 9/11 my job was to provide security in helping diplomats and agents start and or rebuild democracy and free nations that could exist in harmony and prosper in their resources.
Through communication, common sense and debate, I plan to work hard to unite our State so that our policies are strong enough to come together for the benefit of ALL. Having worked in over 15 countries and learning from my experiences I believe our State and Country can find greatness again. We need a free, stable nation of "we the people" and not "we the government". My experience in the world leads me to believe through common-sense representation, we can stop the divide and become one Nation again.
