We must hold elected officials accountable for how they vote and demand the highest standards of ethics and decency. We must also hold citizens accountable for their actions instead of rescuing them from their choices.
* Ethics. I believe elected officials should be held to the highest standard. Voters should not tolerate ethical breaches from elected officials.
* Immigration. We can't reward illegal behavior. We must hold people accountable when they break our laws. Our government has a duty and responsibility to make our first immigration priority the enforcement of existing laws by ensuring that illegal behavior is punished, not rewarded. Any discussion of comprehensive immigration reform must begin with a renewed commitment to enforce our immigration laws. We need to remove the incentives that encourage illegal behavior if we expect to get immigration under control.
* Abortion. I believe all human life is sacred. I support overturning Roe v. Wade to allow states the right to set their own abortion policies.
* Federal Marriage Amendment. The strength of our families is the strength of our nation. Marriage is defined between one man and one woman, there is no other suitable definition or substitute. This is not a political issue, it is a moral one. I will continue to oppose efforts at both the state as well as the national levels to redefine the marriage covenant.
