RESTORING THE CONSTITUTION!
It's not just fluff talk, there's a lot of work to do and I'm willing to do it but I'll need your help.

   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.

   This section is here to show you my stance on a multitude of issues.  I am not above being educated further on anything I have written here and if for ANY reason my stance on these things changes, I will add the change in it and explain what changed my stance on it so that you know I am not hiding or altering my views on any whim or to ingratiate myself with any group or special interest.  These are my firm views so that you know who you are voting for.  Some of these speak for themselves and need no explanation, others do.  There may be some that turn away some voters and if you wish to question me further on any of these, all I ask is that you keep it civil and also allow me to use your question and my answer on this website.  You may choose whether or not I divulge your name or leave you anonymous but I will likely add it to explain anything I put on here to clarify myself for the benefit of other readers.  Thank you.

   VETERANS BEFORE ILLEGAL ALIENS. I don't care if you like that term or not.  If you prefer another term, the only alternative I will offer is CRIMINAL INVADERS.

   VETERANS BEFORE REFUGEES.

   VETERANS BEFORE ANY AND ALL FOREIGN AID THAT IS NOT SPECIFICALLY CALLED FOR IN A CONSTITUTIONALLY RATIFIED TREATY.  Again, I don't care what the cause is, there is NOTHING IN THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA THAT SAYS WE, THE TAX PAYING LAWFUL RESIDENTS AND CITIZENS OWE ANYTHING TO ANY OTHER NATION FOR ANY REASON, PERIOD

​   I WILL ALWAYS PUT CITIZENS BEFORE THESE THINGS TOO!

   I am pro-life and I am working on authoring a Constitutional amendment that will defend the right of the unborn to live!
  
   I am pro second amendment and will always fight to protect and restore your right to keep and bear arms!

   I am for Federal fiscal responsibility and will always fight to cut the cost and over-reach of the Federal Government!

   I am for your right to the free practice of Religion and will fight to protect your right to say no to someone that tries to force you to do something you cannot do in good conscience of your faith!

   I will fight to STOP the practice of Congress that leaves the authorship and implimentation of bills to unaccountable bureaucrats in the Executive branch!

   I WILL ALWAYS SPEAK THE PLAIN, UNFILTERED TRUTH BOTH ON THE FLOOR AND BEHIND CLOSED DOORS WHEN I AM IN WASHINGTON DC.  I DON'T CARE WHO IT OFFENDS!

   I will always fight for merit based imigration and to end the practice of chain migration.

   I will offer and support a Constitutional amendment to make it illegal for imigrants to recieve ANY PUBLIC AID AT ALL for the first five years of their citizenship and those that are yet to be citizens at all, ever!

   I will always use respectable country values and showmanship coupled with stern principles to encourage others in the Senate and the House.  I can't do it by myself but I can encourage and even shame others there to do the right thing with me and I WILL!

​   The Constitutional Patriots Organization asked me to take a ten point oath and when I read it, I didn't hesitate because I personally believe in these ten points as well.  I could copy and paste them but I am going to type them in and follow each one with an explanation as to how I see them so that you know I both understand them as well as mean them!

​   ​1. I will not become a career politician.
​       Earlier in the site, I comitted myself to two terms with room for a third.
​   There is more to this point as well.  I will NEVER put doing the right thing for the people of Tennessee or the United States behind re-election.  THE RIGHT THING MUST COME ABSOLUTELY FIRST, NO EXCEPTIONS, PERIOD!

​   ​2.  I promise Constitutional integrity.
​        ​While this should be self-explanatory, I can not assume that for everyone.  As an elected Senator, my oath of office will include that "I will defend the Constitution of The United States of America from all enemies, foreign and domestic and that I will bear true faith and allegience to the same."
​   That means that if a bill does not AT THE LEAST bring the Federal Government closer to the Constitutional restraints that it is supposed to OBEY, I can not and WILL NOT VOTE IN FAVOR OF IT.  Now, we all know that this process will not happen in any one bill or even a ratified Constitutional amendment so, in order to not just simply be a no vote on everything, I will have to require that a bill at least bring our Government closer to being Constitutional.  If there is at least some return in that direction, I can consider voting for it, otherwise, NO!

​   3.  I support the America First Agenda.
​        Absolutely no GLOBALISM.  This is more than just #MAGA.  The sovereignty of the United States and our citizens is PARAMOUNT.  No agenda 21, no global citizen movement, etc.  If something comes before me that does not fit the Constitution or bring us closer to it, I WILL FIGHT TO STOP IT WITH EVERY TOOL THE SENATE HAS TO OFFER.  If a treaty does not respect or put OUR REPUBLIC FIRST, then I WILL NOT VOTE TO RATIFY IT.

   ​4.  I will be loyal to constituants, not a party.
​        ​To put a spin one of my favorite talk show host's tag lines:
​   I am a Constitutional Patriot first. A conservative second. And a Republican last.  IF IT IS NOT THE RIGHT THING TO DO, I DON'T CARE IF THE PARTY WANTS IT AND I DON'T CARE IF THE PARTY LEADER IN THE SENATE WANTS IT, I WILL NOT SUPPORT IT!

​   ​5.  I support Rights of the people, States Rights and reducing Federal power.
​        ​The sole and complete reason I am running is to restore the rights of the Citizens and the sovereignty of the States.  I am running to devolve the power and cost of the Federal Government.  The only other reason I am running is to REMIND THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT THAT THEY WORK FOR US, NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND!
