As someone who fell in love with America by reading its Constitution, I believe as our Founding Fathers did that smaller government is indeed the best government. I will be an advocate for property rights and will oppose any and all efforts of the Government to confiscate private property. I believe that the Government closer to the people is more aware and better serves its constituents. As such, I will support all efforts which reiterate and establish the 10th Amendment, and will oppose any state mandates on localities without proper funding and a proper hearing.
As an avid outdoorsman and hunter, I believe in the second amendment and will oppose any and all efforts to restrict gun ownership for the law abiding.
