“We hold these truths to be self-evident, 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.” – Declaration of Independence
The founding fathers recognized that to retain a free society that Life must be defended.
It’s been said by many that abortion can only be ended through increments. With over 50 million unborn children murdered since the infamous 1973 Supreme Court opinion, I am convinced that the states can and must end this vile practice through defining an unborn child from the moment of conception until natural death as a person through law and constitutional amendments.
Contrary to what we are told by politicians, the Founders did not put the 2nd Amendment in the Constitution for the right to hunt. Knowing that we don’t inhabit a perfect world, our Founders recognized the vital importance of man’s inherent right to defense of self, family, and property. Sadly, that natural right has been infringed upon by both federal overreach and Oklahoma law.
I look forward to working with my fellow citizens and lawmakers to restore Oklahomans’ unalienable right to self defense, and not regulate it more. I am honored to be a member of Gun Owners of America and the Oklahoma 2nd Amendment Association.
As a fourth generation Oklahoma Panhandle rancher, I understand the importance of protecting ones unalienable right to the pursuit of Happiness (property ownership). I believe through private property ownership, the farming and ranching industry has made the Panhandle and North Western Oklahoma a very unique place to live and raise the next generation.
George Washington said it best: “Private property and freedom are inseparable.”
Under the Constitution of Oklahoma the state legislature has the obligation to provide for education. If elected I will support keeping local control in our schools as it is the parents and teachers who have the relationship with the student, not some bureaucrat or those in Washington D.C. I will also support and will protect the right of the parents to choose alternative education, be it private or home education.
With the passage of SQ 756 in 2010, Oklahoma voters overwhelmingly rejected the implementation of “Obama Care” in Oklahoma. (The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act). There is no Constitutional authority mandating or directing the provision of health care or insurance. I will work with other lawmakers on effective state efforts that push back against an overreaching federal government, and work to pave the way for increased freedom and privacy in health care choices by Oklahoma.
