I strongly support Governor Ron Desantis, and I am committed to seeing Republicans win Florida, Congress, and the next presidential election. I will grow the party.
I support keeping taxes low while removing regulations and tariffs. Businesses will thrive if they are not burdened by government red tape. We need to lower our national debt and get spending under control. We must end enhanced federal unemployment benefits because people should not be paid more to not work than to work. I oppose the $15 national minimum wage because it will discourage businesses from hiring unskilled workers and teenagers, result in inflation, and cause businesses to go bankrupt and layoff workers. The businesses that do survive will rely more on automation and less on employees. I oppose actions to limit the use of fossil fuels. A strong economy needs affordable energy, and the most affordable energy comes from fossil fuels.
Everything legal and ethical should be done to stop illegal immigration. Development on the border wall should resume, the Remain in Mexico Policy should be reinstated, and Title 42 expulsions should continue. Children who cross the border illegally with their caregivers should not be indefinitely detained, but their caregivers should be detained. Releasing children and their caregivers incentivizes more adults to illegally and dangerously cross the border with their children or children they fraudulently claim are their own. The children who cross the border illegally should be placed in a safe and stable placement, but their caregiver should be detained until they receive an adjudication on their immigration status.
Immigration must be managed wisely. The rate of immigration should not exceed the time it takes to educate and integrate immigrants into the economy. We need a merit-based immigration system that ensures those who migrate to the United States are legal, educated, and value American law.
I support the Ten Steps to Fix the Broken Immigration Enforcement System, recommended by NumbersUSA.
National Security and Terrorism
The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 were caused by terrorist alliances who are still in operation today. It was a big mistake for President Biden to leave billions of dollars worth of military equipment without maintaining a ground presence in Afghanistan; however, I do not support reinvading Afghanistan. President Biden's dysfunctional withdrawal from Afghanistan was a betrayal to our military personnel, allies in Afghanistan, and the nations who supported us in Afghanistan. To address the problem of international terrorism, the US cannot operate alone in the world. The United States must develop working alliances with NATO countries and other strategic allies, including politically challenging countries such as China and Russia. I do not support the US involving itself in border disputes or the civil wars of other nations. We should secure our own border before we talk about protecting the border of other nations.
Covid-19 is a serious illness but it never justified economic lockdowns. Since April 2020, I’ve been a vocal critic of lockdowns and advocated for the state to reopen. I created one of the largest Reopen Florida groups on the internet. While other kowtowing candidates tolerated the authoritarian lockdowns, I clearly saw that the harm of lockdowns were greater than the harm of the coronavirus. I support voluntary Covid-19 vaccinations if a person chooses the vaccine, but I oppose vaccine passports and government mask mandates.
Crime and Public Safety
Any effort to defund law enforcement is unacceptable. I’ve worked as a Child Protective Investigator with the Department of Children and Families, and I’ve responded to homes with police escort because there are many situations where a social worker is not enough. Law enforcement is the thin blue line that holds civilization together.
Liberals criticize the high incarceration rate in the United States; however, there is evidence the incarceration of parents and siblings can reduce future incarceration levels in children. If we want to end the culture of crime, we must get tough on career criminals and recognize when rehabilitation is not likely.
Due to the legalization of marijuana/cannabis that is occurring in some states, I support empowering the Drug Enforcement Agency to develop consumer safety guidelines for the interstate sale and transportation of cannabis in order to have a federal regulatory structure that can manage the legal sale and transfer of cannabis between states. I support allowing each state to decide if they will legalize or criminalize cannabis.
I am a strong supporter in the Second Amendment. I believe that the government should not infringe on our Second Amendment rights. The right to own a firearm starts at 18-years-old. If elected, I will sponsor a bill to repeal President's Biden's prohibition on the transfer of firearms without a gun broker.
Fighting Political Corruption
Like you, nothing makes me angrier than self-serving politicians who care more about enriching themselves than serving our country. President Trump was right for wanting to know the Biden crime family's financial ties to Ukraine, and the corrupt Democrats wrongly impeached him for it. Pelosi has amassed over a 100 million from investments she refuses to consider insider trading. Hunter Biden's ugly paintings are clearly a pay-to-play bribe laundering scheme, and every art appraiser knows it! Hillary lied about Benghazi, and she used the Hillary Foundation to launder bribes. Corruption that lurks on the borders of legality is hard to prosecute, but fighting it starts with politicians who are not afraid to call it out! I will call it out when I see it.
Fraud and loss of confidence in our elections is an existential threat to our Republic. Vote-by-mail or absentee ballots must include an objective verification method like a state I.D. number included on the ballot or, less preferably, a subjective verification method like a signature. Unrequested mail ballots should never be sent out to every registered voter, like some states did in the 2020 Presidential election. Mass mailing ballots to the void inevitably increases the risk of fraud. The chain of custody problems with mail ballots can be reduced by ending reliance on USPS and other mail carriers to deliver the ballots and instead require monitored drop boxes to deposit the absentee ballot. Voting in person must must require a state or federal I.D. to identify the voter.
