I am running for the United States House of Representatives because like so many of you, I am concerned with the direction our country is headed. A national debt spiraling out of control, the outrageous growth in the size of our federal government, and a massive federal power grab called ObamaCare are destroying our Liberty.
I will represent you by actively addressing the problems that threaten our nation. I will bring West Texas values and common sense to Washington. I will directly confront Barack Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, and others on the Progressive Left.
I will be an active, bold leader, not a bystander. I will speak from the floor of the House as often as possible. I will update you and the news media every day. I will spend my time in Washington doing important work and not seeking to be important.
I will regularly write short, concise bills intended to incrementally take apart ObamaCare, the EPA, the IRS, the Department of Energy and the Department of Education. I will trim the bloated welfare system. Money and power will be returned to the people and to the individual states where the Tenth Amendment tells us it belongs in the first place.
I am a surgeon. I believe small bills can function like a scalpel in the hands of a skilled surgeon by cutting out what is bad and leaving what is good. Large, complex bills of hundreds and even thousands of pages only serve to increase the size of government because they are deliberately designed to be inaccessible to ordinary Americans while increasing access to the lobbyists and special interests.
You and I believe that Liberty is the answer, with each man and woman able to make decisions for themselves and their families. Our Constitution as written protects men and women from their government, from tyrants, and from elitist busy bodies.
Washington is broken, and both parties are to blame. Much of the Republican Party does not have the courage to confront Obama and the Far Left. The Republicans are eager to posture when the TV cameras are on, but when the rubber hits the road, they refuse to boldly stand for principle.
That is why I am running for the Texas 19th Congressional District House seat. We need accountability in Washington. We need leaders who will boldly fight for our Conservative values and not just vote for them.
America’s best days are always before us when We the People stand up to fight for those values that built our great nation.
