Role of Government

“When the people find that they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic.”

Benjamin Franklin

Role of Government

I am committed to making sure we leave our children an America that is at least as free, prosperous, and safe as the one we inherited. This will not happen without firm, reliably conservative leadership from Utah’s 4th Congressional District.

The size and scope of the Federal government must be reined in. We must avoid costly foreign entanglements with no clear national security objectives or conditions for victory. We must address our out-of-control debt situation. Congress has abdicated too much power to the Executive Branch. The “administrative state” has grown far beyond anything imagined by our Founders, with unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats having assumed far too much control over the nation’s purse than they should have.

The government-contracting industrial complex has enriched the few at the expense of the many: five of the wealthiest counties in America border the District of Columbia.

All government should be as small and as least intrusive in our lives as possible, with the Federal government being limited to its constitutionally enumerated powers. States should jealously safeguard their sovereignty and should organize and work together within the framework of the Constitution to restore rightful order.

The 10th Amendment to the Bill of Rights is clearly an example of the best being saved for last.

Like me, you have probably been disappointed by leaders who swore to make good on conservative promises like these. So don’t judge me by my words, judge me by my record as a state legislator and by the organizations that have endorsed my campaign: the House Freedom Fund, Libertas Institute, Americans for Prosperity, the Utah Taxpayers Association, Freedomworks, the American Conservative Union, and Republicans for National Renewal.
