Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

I believe in limited government, fiscal responsibilty, strong national defense, and the Right to LIFE, LIBERTY and THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS. The federal government has gotten to big and out of control, with the IRS " I will work to abolish" the EPA, and the federal DOE. Common core has destroyed the education system.
