National Security

America’s defense and the safety of our soldiers is of the utmost importance. I served in the US Army for over twenty years from the rank of Private to Lieutenant Colonel. Some of our children deployed to Korea, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Kosovo. We must have a clearly defined mission and end state before deploying our sons and daughters. Our forces must be sufficient to deter aggressors and ensure rapid victory should deterrence fail. National Security and the strength of our economy are closely related. Our next congressman must have relevant experience.

 

Economy

I ran my own business for 11 years. It’s difficult to hire and grow when overburdened with regulation.  Reducing regulation grows the economy, providing jobs and prosperity. The way to grow the real economy is to dismantle and limit the bureaucracy, lower taxes, and support our small businesses and farmers. I support the Fair Tax, vehemently oppose retroactive taxes, and will push to end policies destructive to working Kansans.

 

Life

I am a vocal defender of the unborn, a founding member of the local Kansans for Life chapter, and a repeated denouncer of the Nation’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood. Paul Davis’ radical anti-family record in the Kansas House make him unfit for office. He voted over 80 times against pro-life legislation, including a vote for sex-selection abortion.

 

 

 

Immigration

The United States has and continues to accept more legal immigrants than any other country in the world. Immigration must be for the betterment of America. Illegal immigration is wrong, detrimental to our security, and destructive of our economy. It is not tolerated anywhere else and it can no longer be tolerated here. Those in this country illegally can and should return to the country of origin and apply for a legal visa. I’ve been personally involved in such cases and believe that while diligently enforcing legal immigration is difficult and inconvenient, it is the right thing to do.

 

 

2nd Amendment

I’m proud to have been a sponsor of Kansas Senate Bill 45 that resulted in constitutional carry and to be a long-term life member of the NRA. Unfortunately, more work remains to be done as the federal government continues to exercise unwarranted and intrusive powers within the states. We need the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, so your rights are respected across state lines.
