Taxation Although tax revenues are important for the operations of local and state programs, I believe that taxation should be kept to a minimum and used responsibly. I will work to reduce the tax burden on the people of Washington State and will NOT vote for ANY tax increase. I believe raising taxes should require a 2/3 majority vote of the legislature or a vote of the people.
Marriage Equality I don’t believe the government should be licensing marriage and should not have a say in who marries who. Marriage should not be defined by the government.
Personal Rights The rights of an individual are what the Bill of Rights was written to protect. The government has no jurisdiction or right to restrict, repeal, or limit the rights of the individual. The rights of the people supersede any and all government law, regulation, or order regardless of majority support.
Personal Liberty As a Christian, I aim to live what i believe to be a moral life. Among the the beliefs that I aim to follow is that of no judgement. I believe that everyone is free to believe and live as they wish, making decisions that are right for themselves within the constraints of their own beliefs and moral codes. Only when the actions of a person infringes on the liberty of another person or persons, shall the society (government) have the right to restrict or prohibit such action.
Legalized Marijuana I do not endorse or encourage the use of marijuana. That said, I voted in favor of legalization because I believe it a matter of personal liberty to make your own choices. I cannot support incarcerating and/or fining people for personal use of a product that may harm them, it is a choice for each individual to make. I will also support reducing taxes and fees on this product, as that is the only way we will eliminate the dangerous black market.
Right To Life Individual rights include the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness as stated in the United States Declaration of Independence. I believe that Life begins at conception and believe that every life deserves the chance to live.
Right To Live Every individual has the right to live as they see fit, regardless of sexual orientation, gender, race, religion or any other identifying factor. All are equal and none are more or less than another. I will not, as an elected representative, advocate, vote for or support any restriction or special advancement of any group over another.
My beliefs will guide my life, but I do not have the right to force my beliefs on others, Jesus taught that we are to spread the gospel through love and by example not by dictatorial rule. Religious liberty is a core value in our culture and I will not advocate for ANY religion, my own or any other, to have the rule of law.
Property Rights I am a strong advocate for the rights of property owners.
