WHERE I STAND

WHAT I THINK OF PRESIDENT TRUMP

I support President Trump.  As a senator I'll help him. I'll be in his corner. I think president Trump has done more to protect America then any president we've had in the last 50 years.

TERM LIMITS

It's clear that senators and congressmen compromise their standards the longer they are in office. I favor limiting the Senate and House to one or two terms. I actually feel that it is unfair for these men to be asked to endure continuous temptation for long periods. Lord Acton said, "Powertends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely."

 

GLOBAL WARMING

Global warming is the mechanism used by  the globalists to gain worldwide control, regulate countries and create agreements that supersede the US Constitution.

MY VIEW ON A CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION OR THE CONVENTION OF STATES

Article 5 of The United States Constitution simply says that the Congress....on the application of the legislature's of two-thirds of the several States shall call a convention.... the Constitution is silent on how the delegates will be chosen and so much more. Chief justice Antonin Scalia never wanted to have a Constitutional Convention. He said no one knew what would come out of it. Proponents of a Constitutional Convention or an Article V Convention say that the delegates would be bound to the creation of amendments only. And that the amendments would have no efficacy until the states ratified them. But the only precedent that we have for Constitutional Conventions is the one in 1787 in Philadelphia that scrapped the existing Constitution and produced the miraculous Constitution that has graced America for almost 250 years. But that was a different time. The men that attended that convention were some of the most Godly men on the planet. Those men had just prayed their way through a war with the most powerful Nation on Earth. George Washington had made a covenant with God in order to procure the blessings of Heaven. Those men were dedicated to freedom and the need to check power. Many of George Washington's men wanted him to become king. He had the Army to become king had he wanted but refused. James Madison the father of the Constitution said, "Whatever may be the judgement pronounced on the competency of the architects of the constitution or whatever maybe the destiny of the edifice prepared by them, I feel it a duty to express my profound and solemn conviction...that there never was an assembly of men charged with a great and arduous trust who were more pure in there motives  or more exclusively devoted to the object committed to them than were the members of the federal convention of 1787 to the object of devising and proposing a constitutional system which should ... best secure the permanent liberty and happiness of their country". 

I don't see this dedication to protecting our freedoms of by those in power today. As Utah's Senator 

I'll protect the Constitution by  making sure Utah does not call for an Article V Constitutional Convention.

SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS

The people are the great check on government. "A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed". It's one of the very most fundamental elements of keeping people free. Private guns were Washington's army's weapons. Historically governments always disarm before they strip people of their freedom. The right to carry a gun for personal protection is also an essential part of a free society. There  are some who say private guns are the cause of mayhem. It is common that when someone is killed by a gun to hear a cry for an elimination of all guns. But eliminating guns leads to a police state. Police states are deadly.

AGENDA 21

This is a United Nations program created to standardize cities, programs and patterns that are consistent with U.N. plans for a global government. It's being implemented across America without the consent of the people.  Most of the Agenda 21 plans are contrary to the culture of freedom and family that are traditional to our way of life.

NATIONAL DEBT

Most people have come to the conclusion that the national debt is a problem that cannot be fixed. It can't even be slowed down. But after we study Ludwig Von Mises and other economic thinkers that are grounded in free market economics, we know there is a solution. The answer is also found in the constitution which requires that congress is the entity that creates all money. The moment United States departed from that Constitutional safeguard is the moment that an entity other than the United States became the benefactor of that privilege. Trillions of Dollars have gone into the coffers of private banks that under Constitutional law should have gone into the coffers of the United States Treasury. Even the charters of these special money creating private banks require the banks be non-profit. Those charters have not been kept. Returning these funds to the United States treasury would put the United States in a position to pay off its debt very quickly. Thomas Jeffereson said,"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered.... I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies.... The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs."

COMMON CORE/SAGE TESTING

Common Core is a good example of federal overreach. Nothing in the Constitution allows the federal government to control education in the states. Now that Common Core is in place it is extremely unpopular. Everyone realizes  it is  extremely counterproductive  in teaching our children. But when Utah improperly reached its hand out for a chance to receive common core money, Utah was required to enter into contracts which now the federal government claims Utah is unable to withdraw from without enormous penalties. To add insult to injury Utah never did receive any of the Common Core funds. Our officials are buying into the presumption that we cannot renegotiate these contracts. But we can and it is important that we do.

AFFORDABLE CARE ACT

Nowhere in the Constitution is it written that the federal government must provide for health care. The Federal Governments job is to provide us the freedom to provide for ourselves. Utopia sounds so appealing. The Affordable Care Act promised two important things: number one, coverage for everyone and number two, lower healthcare costs. Forced Healthcare is another great example of government outside of its proper role. Under the Affordable Care Act costs have doubled for citizens and more than doubled for employers. The percentage of people without health insurance has increased. How could t
