Getting Back To the Basics
I believe that 'We the People' are the hope of America’s future and if our Constitutional Republic is to continue, it will depend on us. If you take the Constitution out of the equation, what do you replace it with?
I pledge support for the U.S. Constitution not to any international charter, convention or treaty that in anyway supplants its structure, authority or rights enshrined.
I embrace as my own words those by President Washington in his Farewell Address, “Observe good faith and justice towards all nations; cultivate peace and harmony with all.” “The great rule of conduct for us in regards to foreign nations is, in extending our commercial relations, to have with them as little political connection as possible.”
I concur with what the U.S. Government stated in its Citizenship manual dated 1928, “The attempt to undermine the Nation from within is more serious than the threat of armed forces from without. An impractical and destructive idealism is being propagated by certain foreign agitators and is being echoed and reechoed by many of the Nation’s intellectuals. Its efforts are to combat the spirit of patriotism, to destroy that spirit of nationalism without which no people can long endure. History teaches that in proportion as nations lose their sense of nationalism they become decadent. Having lost their sense of pride in the traditions of the past, their respect for national standards, their love for country, their spirit of patriotism - the end is near."
I believe in the declaration of Senator Henry Cabot Lodge, “The United States is the World’s best hope. Be aware how you trifle with your marvelous inheritance - For if we stumble and fall the freedom and civilization everywhere will go down in ruin.”
I trust in the words of President Abraham Lincoln and in our citizenry, “...that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom and that the government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth.”
God bless you, your families, our Constitution and our Nation.
As a Congressman my promises to you are...
My promise to you is to promote the unity of our U.S. Citizens. It's the security and strength of our nation. We need to stop the proliferation of political, religious, racial, sexual, economic, social and other factions that threaten our unity.
My promise to you is to reintroduce what the California State Board of Education promoted in 1924 when it stated, “The fate of the nation in a very real sense lies in the hands of their sons and daughters who study its history in public schools.” Let’s make our school systems great based on the principles that made our nation great. Let the teachers teach with the aid of supportive parents and respectful students.
My promise to you is that I will not support any domestic legislation or international charters, conventions or treaties that in anyway diminishes the structure, authority or any of our rights enshrined in the Constitution of the United States of America.
My promise to you is that I will empower U.S. Citizens with the knowledge of domestic or international legislation that threatens the structure, authority or any of our rights enshrined in the Constitution of the United States of America. Thus fulfilling what President George Washington said in his Farewell Address, “In proportion as the structure of government gives force to public opinion, it is essential that public opinion be enlightened.”
My promise to you is to practice good international relations, but not at the expense of our U.S. Sovereignty or our Constitution. Nationalism before Internationalism. Spend our tax dollars at home taking care of our citizens. Invest in our teachers, police officers, firefighters and other public servants rather than spreading Representative Democracy around the globe as outlined by the United Nations.
My promise to you is practice the principle of limited, but strong Federal leadership. Set expectations for the States and then let the States govern themselves. Decrease excessive regulation that is plaguing our nations industries and institutions. Let the ingenuity of our people find the solutions to solving their own problems. The Federal Government should use common sense oversight not controlling micromanagement.
My promise to you is to promote the advice of President Washington who stated, “Religion and morality are the pillars of political prosperity.” Supreme Court Justice Joseph Story states, “In a Republic there seems to be a peculiar propriety in viewing Christianity as a great basis upon which it rests for its support and permanence.”
My promise to you is to stop the collection of non health related personal data through health care facilities which is a violation of personal privacy rights.
My promise to you is to promote a strong U.S. Military to protect our citizens and allies, but not to promote the proliferation of Representative Democracy in countries that do not want to participate. As of 2011 the USA had over 600 bases in over 140 countries. Included in this priority is securing the benefits of our military service men and women who have put their lives on the line to provide us peace and security.
My promise to you is to reintroduce and encourage good citizenship standards and practices. Let’s improve the quality of our individual and national character.
My promise to you is to assess our current tax code for changes, but not according to the recommendations of the International Monetary Fund and the Group of 20 that recommend changing to a VAT system and getting rid of the mortgage interest deduction. Secure the social security system for our elders once and for all.

Dear Fellow Citizens, We are a Republic not a democracy. Therefore, each citizen has a duty to help preserve, protect and defend the U.S. Constitution thus securing our rights as outlined in our Constitution. One way to fulfill your duty is to study this information and then share it with your families and friends. The next step is to ask your current Representative in Congress to explain how it is possible to pledge allegiance to the United States of America and our Constitution while simultaneously legislating U.S. Congressional support for the international charters, conventions and treaties of the Organization of American States which are founded upon the purposes and principles of the United Nations not our Constitution. There is no way to simultaneously pledge allegiance to both as we will learn to love and support the one while despising and rejecting the other. God bless you, your families, our Constitution and the United States of America.
