Make Government Work Where it Should, and Keep it Out Where it Shouldn’t
The Founding Fathers of this great country were skeptical of government power, yet they clearly believed the federal government was a positive force and had a strong role in ensuring the success of their new democratic experiment. They also believed that the federal government should have specific responsibilities. The founders laid out their views directly in the very first words of the Constitution, the Preamble:
“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
We need a well-run and effective government. We simply cannot afford a country overseen by those who don’t believe in the mission of the very organization they run and who express disdain for the very institutions our Founding Fathers put in place to serve and protect the citizens of the United States of America.
We don’t need government prying into our everyday lives, telling us what to think or who to love, where to worship, how to act or with whom we should associate. I will fight to ensure that government does what it should and keeps its nose out of our lives where it shouldn’t.
