Candidate's Comments:
The abortion elephant must first be addressed from the position of "Do you want to pay for someone else's indiscretion?" 80+% of Americans say NO, thus no more money for abortions from State or Federal Government (Taxpayer dollars). If you want an abortion, then pay for it yourself or pay less for prevention. (Elephant 90+% eaten.) Next, enforce Federal Laws regarding the specific harvesting of fetus/baby body parts and their sale. By making State laws equivalent to the existing Federal Laws, and enforcing them, the penalties alone (fines and jail time) will eat another 9+% of the Elephant. Mind you, at no point have I offered to make abortion illegal, although fundamentally it is murder of a human life. Gunman shoots pregnant mother and is charged with a double homicide. Gunman shoots pregnant mother, mother survives and fetus dies, a single homicide and attempted murder. Those seeking abortion should hear all sides of the argument including the babies heartbeat, testimony of those who have had an abortion, those who chose not to have an abortion, and the child saved. Further testimony from parents unable to have children and their experience with someone who decided against abortion who allowed them to adopt the child. Then one last listen to the heartbeat of their own baby. Then they get to make the decision. Abortion to save the life of a Mother is less than 0.02% of all abortions thanks to "Modern Medicine." Freewill is a gift from God to ALL humans. The freewill to do evil and good. Society will adjust to how they measure evil and violations of the rights of others, but God has a position we will all answer to. Choose your path wisely and kindly. Eating the Abortion Elephant 99.9% is better progress than anything done so far. Society as a whole will have to eat the last bite.

Candidate's Comments:
As Americans, we all have our freedom, liberty, and sovereignty. It's when others encroach on and violate the freedom, liberty, and sovereignty of any American that there is a problem. We have to absolute right to stand our ground in so far as it doesn't violate others. We either embrace our entire Constitution or none of it. Free speech is protected, but repercussions exist. You may lose a friend, or be attacked by a group. If you exercise free speech, then you must be prepared for the fallout. I support the Constitution 100% and it's equal application to ALL Americans. Religious beliefs, spiritual beliefs, non-belief, must be respected insofar that there is no action taken towards someone to force anothers beliefs on the other. Doxing is a personal attack violating basic private rights. Those who engage in doxing should be punished in such a way that further acts will be fully deterred. Truth, verifiable truth, and facts matter. False and misleading statements and accusations in the form of libel, slander, malicious defamation, and character assassination must be addressed in a similar way through the courts.

Candidate's Comments:
There are two sexes of human beings. Male and Female. It is a gross violation of women's rights for a male to be accepted as a female in sports, prison, or anything of contrast requiring such segregation. Parents Rights were ruled on by the Supreme Court in the favor of Parents. The current policies in public education allowing for indoctrination of gender identity or sexual orientation is a crime against humanity, the children and their parents. Oregon has many such laws that violate Parents Rights and the US Supreme Court Rulings. I will address this day one. There is no reason to add any other class to nondiscrimination law. Everyone falls into the existing categories and, in all honesty, your sexual orientation or identity should never come into the conversation. If a new employee decides to make that information an issue, then prepare to be shown the door. Where do heterosexuals promote their sexual orientation? They don't. Thus, no one of any sexual orientation should promote or make a point of their own.

Parental Rights for Transparency in Education: Giving parents access to the curriculum and materials their children are learning in school and allowing them to decide whether or not their children should be exposed to certain ideas.

Candidate's Comments:
State and Federal funds should follow every student up to 12th Grade whether they attend private school, public school, charter school, or home school. This will bring back healthy competition for student dollars and get us back to real education and away from indoctrination. Parents should always have the final say on appropriate subject matter. Granted, educators should be of such caliber to KNOW what is in bounds and acceptable to the average parent, but we have seen the infiltration of extremists, socialist, communists, fascists, and anarchists in an environment they should not be part of. Vouchers? ENGAGE! Parents should always be able to "OPT OUT" for their children, period. America's laws and policies DO NOT perpetuate systemic racism. Racism exists in it's small pockets, but it is not systemic. This is a lie perpetrated to justify a communist and fascist agenda by creating division within our American collective. We are a diverse nation. We are a diverse population. We are a diverse society. Sure conflicts will arise, but those who create these conflicts have agendas that fall outside of our Constitution. Be mindful. Parents should always KNOW what their children are being taught in school. Sex education and other morality topics are not decisions for educators to make. With all the indoctrination that has happened we find that the family unit is being systematically destroyed. We must reverse this process.

Candidate's Comments:
I will never support medical mandates, especially those that violate the Nuremberg Code and CIVIL RIGHTS. People's personal beliefs, conscience, and choice must be respected. It is a fundamental premise for our Constitution and Bill of Rights. We must all protect each other and stand our ground. Schools should NEVER provide counseling involving medical services. Anything the schools offer should never occur without the Parents express knowledge and consent. Gender transition, abortion, and vaccination should NEVER involve a school. These should be addressed within the family by the child's parents. If the school suspects an issue for any child in attendance, then they should notify the parents and allow them to take action. Parents Rights Matter!
