Who I Am
The Constitution and free enterprise matter. Our values and our legal foundation made us the most prosperous and free nation in the history of the world. We are still in great risk of losing our freedom to worship, pass on a better life to our children and speak out for the issues we hold dear. The three branches of government work as a system of checks and balances, when one branch violates our national values, the other branches hold them to account; the American people are the ultimate check and balance each election year. Our Constitution does not give us rights; our Constitution recognizes the freedom given to us by God. Every generation must work to protect that freedom for the next generation.
I am continuing to work for Oklahomans and our Nation by preserving the freedom that has made our country great and voicing reason at this critical time. The federal government needs to stop taking away more power through burdensome red tape and irrational federal debt.
We must deal with our debt crisis and work to balance the budget. While there is no quick fix or easy solution, we must get started back to fiscal responsibility now.
We cannot remain silent on the principles that make up the foundation of our country. America has never been a country of one faith, but the Christian principles that founded our great country allow for the free exercise of any faith without government intrusion. My journey began after many hours of prayer. I still feel a clear calling to continue serving the individuals and families of Central Oklahoma in the United States House of Representatives.
In God We Trust,
