DEFENDING OUR VALUES
Pro life: I promise to protect the life of the unborn as life is precious.
As Pope Francis said: “The right to life is the first among human rights.”
Pro second amendment: I promise to protect the right to keep and bear arms.
As George Washington said:" A free people ought not only to be armed, but disciplined; to which end a uniform and well-digested plan is requisite; and their safety and interest require that they should promote such manufactures as tend to render them independent of others for essential, particularly military, supplies."
Pro first amendment: I promise to protect free speech.
As Frederic Douglas said:" To suppress free speech is a double wrong. It violates the rights of the hearer as well as those of the speaker."
for Our Veterans
So many people in this country have died fighting for our freedom. My family has had someone serve in every major war since the revolution. My grandfather served in 1-126 Cavalry Regiment, and my uncle was in 1-126 Cavalry Regiment. It is a family tradition that I followed by proudly serving my country in 1-126 Cavalry Regiment. I have developed a passion for our veterans and their families.
For a start, send our military to war only as a last resort. When we must, provide them with full support to win. And when people get back, do not abandon them. I promise, if elected, veterans will find a friend in my office 24 hours a day. I will never turn down veterans or their families in need and will not give up working for their cause and support.

After more than 10 years of healthcare reforms, it is more than clear that Congress has become part of the insurance business. Obamacare 1.0 and the failed-to-pass Obamacare 2.0 put the center of the reform in and around the insurance industry. In addition, Obamacare heavily taxed the average American to pay for that insurance. As a result, the cost for healthcare skyrocketed but the care did not improve. In fact, many small medical practices closed doors, making it harder for people to get access to Healthcare. Today our healthcare is not affordable and the coverage is not easy to access due to high deductibles.
We need to get the Government out of the health insurance business and focus on elevating doctor/patient relationships. Using that as a foundation brick, we need to lower the costs of healthcare and reduce unnecessary third-party involvement. Tax relief is very needed in the area of healthcare. I am also asking third district constituencies with similar ideas to share them, as I want to draft (or co-sponsor) a bill in the first year of Congress, if elected, to address the issue of accessing low-cost, quality healthcare.
There is no more important duty for a Congress member but to support the Constitution. Since 1789, this is the oath that every Congress member takes:
" I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support the Constitution of the United States."
In the same way that I took an oath to defend my country in the mountains of Afghanistan, I will proudly take that oath to support the Constitution, to keep that promise and be transparent and diligent in every vote I take. I am also asking the third district constituents to keep a check on me, as I intend to listen to their voices and concerns on each bill that comes to my desk for a vote.
Washington has become a political swamp that sucks energy and money from everyday people around the country. The government seems to load on the working man's back only taxation. The government takes loans as if there is no future to consider.
In my first year in office, if elected, I will attempt to co-sponsor a permanent tax relief to everyday citizens and permanent residents to equal the permanent tax relief the corporations have received. In the end, people should be equal to corporations, not only when they donate money for political campaigns, but also when they pay taxes. I will also work to co-sponsor a bill for a balanced budget amendment without an individual tax increase.
