Common Sense Immigration

This is what common sense looks like regarding immigration. I am glad I had the common sense to support Ron Paul for president ten years ago.

Sadly the voters in the GOP missed that sensible train.

Why are you the best candidate?

I am the only truly independent candidate. My only special interest is to serve the citizens of our county. I am the only local candidate, for any office, with the courage to truly tackle our tragic opioid crisis. Twenty-nine states and D.C. has some sort of legal cannabis (marijuana). Where there is safe access to legal cannabis, opioid-related overdoses have dropped by at least 25 percent. Some states are allowing doctors to prescribe cannabis in lieu of opioid painkillers. I call on the county to declare a public health emergency and immediately decriminalize cannabis and allow patients to grow their own medicine. Cabarrus County should be on the cutting edge of compassion by protecting our God-given right to self-medicate ourselves with natural and organic plants. The war on cannabis is a war on Nature and Humanity and anyone who doesn’t believe this is ignorant, anti-science and downright wrong!

My answers for the Cabarrus Magazine’s October Issue Candidates Profile…

 

Q: What is the single biggest issue facing Cabarrus County? What is your plan to address that issue?

A: The opioid crisis. I call for the county to declare a public health emergency and immediately decriminalize cannabis (marijuana) in the county. In states with access to safe, legal cannabis, opioid-related deaths have dropped at least 25 percent. Cabarrus County should be on the cutting edge of compassion and defend its citizens’ God-given right to self-medicate safely.

Public School Safety

My take on public school safety and those offensive mobile classrooms…

 
We have an abundance of retired military and law enforcement officers living in our county. I would work with the Sheriff and municipal law enforcement to develop a way to utilize this valuable asset of our community.

 
Banks and businesses use guards who are heavily armed to protect their money. Shouldn’t we take the same precautions to protect our most precious resource, our children?

 
We also need to find the money to eliminate those offensive mobile classrooms. Our children deserve better.

 
I call on Dr. Lowder and the education establishment to move out of their nice, safe and cozy offices and work out of a construction trailer until this issue is settled.
Where are our priorities?

Freedom and Fair Play

free-market-economy-past-present-and-future-5-638

 

I want our county to be a truly free and fair market with the least amount of political influence as possible.

 
We can provide a space where markets can thrive with the lowest taxation and regulatory burden in our region without sacrificing our dedication to clean air and water.

 
We are capable of raising our environmental standards while increasing the economic freedom of all citizens, not just the politically favored and connected corporate interests.
My only special interest is to serve my fellow citizens.

 

 

I can only serve them by serving the principles of freedom and fair play.
