As a future State Representative I believe it is important that as I ask for your vote that I also let you know my philosophy of government so that you are confident in where I will stand as your representative. I believe that in this day in age we too often are told what we want to hear instead of where a candidate stands. A candidate’s philosophy on the purpose of government and the value of individual rights and what they are will guide a representative in their decisions so knowing that ahead of time will help guide a voter to make an informed decision when giving their vote to a candidate.
I strongly believe that each person has value and because each person has value each person has a right to exist without an overburdening and controlling government and that individual rights and liberty are crucial for an individual to pursue meaning and happiness in their individual lives. I believe government exists for the people and by the people and that when people come together and form a society that government has to exist to protect the rights of the individual from those that would take individual rights away weather that is a unlawful citizen violating the rights of a person through criminal acts or a government acting unlawful by violating the rights of an individual with laws that defy the proper role of government and compromises individual liberty.
I believe that no human legislation is superior to the right of the individual and that society has a duty to safeguard individual rights.
I believe that as a state representative the most important role is to represent the best interest of constituents by protecting their Individual rights and voting with a responsible stance on all issues. I strongly believe that a representative has a duty to understand each bill and to contemplate how that bill will impact the individual, society, and the generations to come.
As your state Representative I will never vote based upon only the opinion of colleagues, or staff. I will vote after I have read and analyzed each bill myself to ensure that it does not compromise individual liberty or defy the proper role of government.
