MY PLATFORM

Here are some of the issues that are near & dear to my heart, these are issues I will fight to pass for you & I will not compromise on these points.

LIFE

“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 60 million unborn children murdered since the infamous 1973 Supreme Court opinion, I am convinced that Oklahoma can and must end this Satanic practice by ABOLISHING and criminalizing it for what it is, MURDER!
Even our own Oklahoma Republican Party Platform states on page 4, 
“We believe abortions are contrary to the Word of God and must not be approved (or supported by) or included in our party platform; with no exceptions. We believe intentional abortion is murder and should be treated as such in accordance with our state laws.” and further demands on page 5, “Be it resolved that the abolition of abortion be brought to a full floor vote in both Oklahoma Legislative Chambers.”
To bring an end to Oklahoma’s Holocaust, I will immediately introduce legislation criminalizing it as MURDER and fight to that end!

PROPERTY RIGHTS

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.”

TAXATION

Government’s appetite even in Oklahoma never seems to be satisfied with your hard-earned dollars and always seems to leave them returning for more.  I simply state to you that I will absolutely unequivocally and always oppose tax increase measures, and I will join Governor Stitt in their efforts to target government waste and streamline government growth!

SELF-DEFENSE

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.  Have had the honor to be a member of Gun Owners of America and the Oklahoma 2nd Amendment Association which have done amazing work to restore this vital Liberty.

EDUCATION

If elected I will fight to keep 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 absolutely support and will protect the right of the parents to choose alternative education, be it private or home education.

HEALTH CARE

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. We must safe guard against enacting Federal Exchanges, due to the Obamacare mandate fully enrolling states who do so!  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 Oklahomans.
