My stance on important issues
SUPPORT OF THE U.S. CONSTITUTION:
Over 40 years ago I took an oath to uphold and support the U.S. Constitution. While that event happened over four decades ago, I am just as serious today about upholding and supporting the U.S. Constitution as I was the day I took the oath.
My support of the 2nd Amendment is without compromise. I believe that the State of Maine Constitution says it best when it says, “Every citizen has the right to keep and bear arms and that right shall never be questioned.”
As one who looks to the Founding Fathers for political inspiration, if elected to Congress I would work to repeal the Patriot Act, the NDAA, and I will fight to reel in the unaccountable bureaucrats who are clearly working outside the boundaries of the U.S. Constitution.
As a member of the Disabled American Veterans I understand the needs and challenges that veterans of Maine face. I truly believe the fact that no one will take better care of a Veteran than a fellow Veteran.
An alarm should go off in every American when they hear that Obamacare is going to be enforced by the IRS. If elected to Congress I will do everything in my power to make sure Obamacare is defunded and repealed.
FOOD SOVEREIGNTY AND FARMING FREEDOM:
The right to choose what we eat is one of our most basic human rights and we should never allow governments to trample on it. In order to have food sovereignty, we must also have farm freedom.
The Food Modernization and Safety Act of 2011 places burdensome regulations on small Maine farms who have absolutely no history of making anyone sick. This act will also cost small farmers tens of thousands of dollars in compliance costs and would surely put many farms out of business.
It is time to get the government and “big farming” out of Maine farms and it’s time to allow the hard working farmers of Maine to exercise their God-given rights to buy, sell and produce what they want without the interference of government. The FMA, and other laws that are bad for Maine families and farms, need to be repealed and I will introduce legislation to do just that if elected to congress.
THE ROAD BACK TO PROSPERITY:
I believe that prosperity can once again return to the second district of Maine. The way it returns is thru a strong economy that is built upon economic freedom. Economic freedom empowers the job creators, small business owners, and entrepreneurs of Maine to flourish and in return Maine families and local communities will be strengthened.
Step #1 – Revise or end so called “Free Trade” agreements.
-Trade agreements like NAFTA are not in the best interest of the working people of Maine.
Step #2 – Stop amnesty and place a moratorium on immigration.
-Until the unemployment rate is 5%, temporary work visas must be put on hold so that Maine workers will have first choice when it comes to the work place. Current immigration policy is a net loss to American taxpayers, and contributes to driving down wages and high unemployment in Maine.
Step #3- End corporate welfare.
-The hardworking taxpayers of Maine should not have their hard earned money taken away from them by force to bail out a failing corporation or a failing bank, no matter how large that corporation or bank may be. If elected to Congress I will never vote for corporate welfare.
Step #4- Stop the war in Afghanistan.
-Rebuild America First! Maine sons and daughters, fathers and mothers, are taken from their towns, jobs and families and are sent to build schools in Afghanistan. The United States can save hundreds of billions of dollars by ending the occupation in Afghanistan, and bring our human capital back to our State.
Step #5 – Remove the excessive regulations from Maine industries.
-Regulations such as the Food Modernization Act of 2011 and the Neutrally Buoyant Rope regulations are crippling Maine’s farmers and fishermen. As a member of Congress I will fight to repeal both of these.
