As a Conservative Republican, I seek a country of liberty and justice; a place where all individuals are sovereign over their individual lives and no one is forced to sacrifice his or her values, morals, or beliefs for the benefit of others. The respect for individual rights is the essential element for a free and prosperous society. I will enforce and protect a person's God-given right to engage in any activity that is peaceful and honest, and welcome the diversity that freedom brings to our great country. I support a country where individuals are free to follow their own dreams in ways they see fit, without interference from their own government.
I strongly believe, as it states in the Declaration of Independence, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. It will be my duty to help restore the Constitutional Republic. I will continue to support and defend the Constitution and oppose any individual, regardless of political party affiliation who attempts to violate the Constitution with any law, policy or Executive Order.
If elected, I vow to help empower the individual and restore our country back to what our Founding Fathers envisioned: A country with a limited, constitutional government, low taxes, free markets, sound money, and a pro-American foreign policy.

The left keeps blaming the right while the right keeps blaming the left. Our nation is divided over philosophical differences when we should be united; not by philosophy, but by the constitution. The constitution should be the driving force behind our laws and policies, not a political party’s view on how our country should run.
I can't believe after all these years and all the lies, the average citizen still believes the hype. Perhaps one of the biggest lies is that the government will not be able to pay what it owes on the national debt; creating the danger of default. Last time I checked our tax money keeps flowing into the Treasury during the shutdown which largely exceeds the interest that has to be paid on the national debt.

It seems like this country will go out of its way to throw a St Patrick's Day parade or Thanksgiving Day parade or save the Rain Forest and Don't Eat Meat parade. Did you know that in 2004, Washington D.C. held its first Memorial Day parade in over 60 years. 60 years?! Unbelievable when you consider the number of brave men and women who have fought and died for this country in the past 60 yrs alone. You would think that the place (Washington DC) that sent them to war would have held a Memorial Day parade within the past 60 yrs.

This past week has been an emotional roller coaster for our nation but more specifically the citizens of Boston and surrounding cities. I watched in horror as I stayed glued to my TV every day as new developments were reported about the terrorist attack on the Boston Marathon. The police, fire, and emergency personnel displayed exemplary service and bravery and I could not be more proud of everyone who was involved in bringing the terrorist suspects to justice.
In the days after the arrest of 19 year old Dzhokar Tsarnaev, there has been a debate on what his legal rights should be. As a current law enforcement officer and Army Combat Veteran, I took an oath to support and defend the Constitution. Under the Constitution, Tsarnaev, a naturalized American citizen, should be afforded his rights to due process.

He asked his Constituents to share their opinion on the issue in the comments section.

The US House of Representatives quietly passed a last-minute addition to the Agricultural Appropriations Bill for 2013 last week - including a provision which would strip federal courts of the authority to immediately halt the planting and sale of genetically modified (GMO) seed crop regardless of any consumer health concerns.
