Philosophy of Politics


Principle before Party

I am conservative first, then Republican.

Many Republicans have strayed from the party's original beliefs of limited government, individual responsibility, free markets, and traditional values. We call them "RINOs" (Republicans In Name Only).

The RINO's worst enemy is not a Democrat, but a Republican who is really conservative, because they will be exposed by contrast.

I am not afraid to stand up to RINOs, even when they are in powerful leadership positions.


Guiding Maxims

  • Every act of government is an act of force, and should be used sparingly.
  • Lawmakers are subject to a higher law, given by a higher Lawmaker--God, the Creator.
  • If it is in the Yellow Pages, the state should not do it.
  • There is nothing honorable about being charitable with other people‚Äôs money.
  • Socialism is bad--very, very bad.

Virtue

Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters.
— Benjamin Franklin

Do you wonder why we have too many laws? Do you wonder why bad people keep getting elected, who ignore the Constitution and spend away your money and trample on your God-given rights?

It's because America has, on the whole, lost it's virtue, it's courage, it's love for one's neighbor.

 

Speech from Meet John Doe calling for people to meet and help their neighbors.

 

Without each one of us personally returning to the ideals, manners, and habits that produce virtue in society, nothing we do politically can save us.
