All of us would agree
there is much in Washington that needs corrected. We’ve become painfully aware of the overreaching hand of our federal government, but the problem isn’t new. We The People have let government at all levels address issues we should be handling ourselves. As a result, we’ve given our leaders authority they were never meant to have. The power to make law is reserved to the States and to the people, aside from specific parts of the Constitution (enumerated powers of Article I, section 8).
My goal is to see our government get smaller—much smaller. I’ll tell you my position on the issues, new and old, so you can know how I will vote or work to reform votes already cast. But the best way to know my approach is to consult the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution or the Bill of Rights.
