Stances

1. I am conservative, both fiscally and socially.

2. I believe in a lean government.

3. The government should operate within the bounds of a balanced budget.

4. The government should serve the people, not the people serve the government.

5. What the government expects of its citizens, it should also expect of itself.

6. There needs to be term limits.

7. As a government we need to adhere to the Constitution, which includes the Bill of Rights. These rights were made to limit and control the government, not its citizens. 

8. I believe in fewer laws, but such laws are to be enforced and not ignored.

9. I believe that U.S. citizens should not be undermined by foreign work Visas, whereas the laws for these Visas need to be strictly enforced.

10. I am Pro-Life
