My motivation to run for office stems from my frustration with the current state of politics. Rather than prioritizing the needs of West Virginians, both parties have become entrenched in party politics and special interests. The result is that West Virginians are held back by the government. As a candidate, my mission is to eliminate the barriers preventing our success and pave the way for a brighter future for all West Virginians. The government is never the answer. The solutions can be found in freedom and liberty.
Mountaineers are always free. Bureaucrats should not tell us how to live our lives, who to be or waste our money.
While other candidates prioritize the rights of some but not
others, I believe that the equal rights of all people matter all
the time. No exceptions.
Each person has the same rights as any other.
Race, gender, ethnic background, immigration status, occupation,
education level, sexual orientation, religion, and other characteristics
should have no bearing on our rights as free and independent people.
The right of all to live in whatever manner they
choose, as long as they do not forcibly interfere with the equal right of
others to live in whatever manner they choose.
The government must treat all people fairly and
equally before the law.
Asset-based development is a sustainable way to promote economic growth through the resources, skills and strengths West Virginia already has. It is time we stopped selling our people, our land and the soul of West Virginia to out of state industry as our only growth strategy. We must remove the regulation and bureaucracy that prevents local small businesses and entrepreneurs from being successful. Free markets are the way to the future.
One of the biggest problems we face today is that many things that
should not be considered crimes are labeled as crimes. Worse yet,
many of these non-violent actions are punished more harshly than
are violent crimes.
Only actions that involve force or fraud
should be labeled as “crimes”. Such crimes should
be prosecuted and punished by our justice system but that actions
that don't involve force or fraud should not be criminalized or
penalized in the first place.
