Top 3 Issues:

1. My actions while serving as an Idaho State Representative will always coincide with the U.S. Constitution and Consitution of the State of Idaho. I will be cognizant of my every action in relation to your personal rights. I am fed up with the consistent abuses of the U.S. and State Constitution committed by both the Idaho and federal governments. I am fed up with politicians who attempt to justify these abuses. The U.S. Constitution is an inspired document. I took an oath to protect it. I will always honor that oath. I will do my best to restore liberties and freedoms, that we have lost. I will do my absolute best to protect the ones we still have.
2. We have seen governments violate the God-given rights of Idahoans and Americans throughout this agenda that arose from a virus. These governments and special interest entities have pushed fear and control. I know who the mastermind of fear and control is. If you are Christian, you know what I am talking about. As a legislator, I have been outspoken against these violations of rights and have fought tirelessly against this agenda. I filed for impeachment on Governor Little for shutting down businesses, violating 1st Amendment protections by not allowing Idahoans to go to church or assemble peacefully, for allocation money without the Legislature’s approval, the right to self-determination, the right to work and earn a living, right to freely associate with others, the right to travel, the right to informed consent and self-determination with regard to medical issues, suspending Idaho statutes without approval from the Legislature, etc. Some people were very upset with me for filing. However, I promised my constituents I would ALWAYS defend the Constitutions of the United States and Idaho. I believe in doing what you say you will do. I stated it continuously that it was not personal. I continuously attend school board meetings to fight for the rights of parents, especially against mask and vaccine mandates. I have fought against vaccine mandates in form. However, the RINOs of Idaho protected businesses that require their employees to get vaccinated. I certainly support business and their rights, but individual rights must always be protected first and foremost.
3. The federal government has no business controlling our public lands. It is not authorized in the U.S. Constitution. We must take back this control. We also need less regulation in agriculture and ranching. We need to protect the property rights of farmers/ranchers while protecting the sportsman’s right to access public land. We need to take control of our natural resources. The federal government has no authority to regulate our natural resources. Idahoans can responsibly govern themselves. The issue of property tax coincides with this subject. No one really owns their property if the government can take it away for not paying your property tax. Direct taxation is unconstitutional and property tax is one of the most un-American taxes that we have. I have voted to support property tax relief and I will continue to vote for every bill that facilitates relief. The repeal of grocery sales tax and fuel tax relief are also very important.
