I support the Second Amendment and the right to self-defense.
I believe deeply in the Constitution, our other founding documents and the principles of our founding fathers.
I believe that parents not only have the right to discipline their children, but the duty to discipline them. The parent who allows their child to run wild is just as bad as the parent who is too strict. Neglect is as bad as abuse.
Meth is a plague upon our community. By my observation, meth is responsible for at least 75 percent of the crime in our community, including property crimes, sex crimes and other crimes of violence. I believe meth dealers should not get less than the 10 years recommended by our legislature.
The prosecutor needs to have a coherent philosophy guiding his decisions. Borrowing the shepherd analogy from the Bible, the body of the people are the sheep who select from among themselves public servants to be their shepherds.
In the case of the Prosecutor, he must know who is a sheep that needs to be moved back into the flock by the use of a staff or the nip from his dog, and who is a wolf who needs to be forever removed from the flock or destroyed. To permit the wolf access to the sheep, to permit the sheep to stray off or to destroy them are equally intolerable.
As a public servant, the Prosecutor has a duty to guard the people's money. Although the Prosecutor may be able to obtain permission to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on assistants to do his job, that does not make it right. Like every other public servant, the Prosecutor should save the people money whenever he can.
I am not afraid of the hard work and the long hours necessary to do the people's business. It is a full-time job, requiring a full-time commitment.
