Reform Our Tax System

More Issues :: Monday, December 9th, 2013

We cannot have fiscal responsibility without reforming our tax system. We need taxes to cover the cost of our military and other government oversight, however taxing middle-income people to the point where nearly 30% of their income is removed from their paycheck is unconscionable. I propose a 10% tax, across the board with no deductions. […]


Balance the Budget

More Issues :: Monday, December 9th, 2013

As a small business owner, husband, and father, I have always had to understand a balanced budget. James Madison, in a letter to Thomas Jefferson in 1789 said “But with respect to future debt; would it not be wise and just for that nation to declare in the constitution they are forming that neither the […]


Cut Spending

More Issues :: Monday, December 9th, 2013

Teachers today are severely limited due to constraints to achieve to a certain […]


Support and Defend Israel

More Issues :: Monday, December 9th, 2013

Israel is our best ally and arguably our only true ally in a region where long-established governments can topple overnight. […]

He is best known for his work “Democracy in America” which is considered one of the earliest and most impactful works on sociology and political science. De Tocqueville was very enamored by the heart of the American […]


Homeland Security

More Issues :: Monday, December 9th, 2013

Military I am very supportive of our military both at home and abroad. They sacrifice their lives to keep this land great and I believe it is our job to fully support them both during and after their service. The only real way to know how to manage the military is by utilizing the wisdom […]
