Abolish Abortion

Abortion is Murder.  Yet pro-life politicians continue to regulate abortion as healthcare.  Consequently, over 5,000 babies are murdered by abortion every year in the pro-life state of Oklahoma.  

I am not a pro-life politician.

I am an abolitionist.

If states like Colorado can defy Washington D.C. by legalizing marijuana, then Oklahoma can defy the federal government in order to secure the right to life.  It is time to move beyond pro-life politics and make Oklahoma the first abortion-free state.

State Sovereignty

Washington D.C. has been setting the rules down here in the Federal District of Oklahoma.  From education and business to religion and sex, the Feds think they know what is best for us.

Unconstitutional court opinions, dictates of congress, and executive edicts have undermined state authority.  As Governor, I will work to restore Oklahoma’s borders by reasserting our state’s sovereign right to govern itself in accordance with Oklahoma values.

We, the people, not political elites in Washington, should govern our state. It is time to restore state sovereignty.

Audit Everything

We all know Washington is a swamp, but we have our own swamp right here in state government.  Politicians are addicted to borrowing and spending.  State bureaucracy is infected with waste, fraud, and abuse.  Every agency should be thoroughly examined.

As Governor, I will insist that every government agency and program be thoroughly audited and justified so that every farmer, rancher, business owner, and employee in Oklahoma can be confident that every dollar taken is properly spent.

Poorly performing departments must be made more productive, and inappropriate programs must be abolished.  It is time to audit everything!

Proper Government

The Declaration of Independence declares:  government is to protect our God-given rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.  But if we cannot secure the right to life, do the others even matter? A government that allows the murder of innocent preborn children will also lie to you and steal from you.  

Such a government might also allow the murder of the elderly and handicapped. That government might even murder you if your religious or political views are inconvenient. What would it profit us if we gain the most thriving economy and best education system in the whole world, but lose our souls in the process?

My first act as governor will be to restore the God-given right to life.
To fulfill this sacred duty, I pledge to:

 Call an emergency special session of the Oklahoma Legislature to criminalize abortion as murder and to remove abortion from the jurisdiction of Oklahoma courts.

Instruct law enforcement officials to immediately close every abortion facility in Oklahoma in accordance with their sworn oaths of office.

Ignore all court orders attempting to thwart the will of the people and advise Oklahoma officials to ignore any federal court summons.

Call upon President Trump to stand with Oklahoma, as we peacefully resolve this matter of jurisdiction.

Call for judicial reforms which would remove the power of judicial review from the courts.

Call upon Christians in Oklahoma to practice pure and undefiled religion (James 1:27), assisting mothers and fathers who would have formerly sought abortion.

 State Sovereignty

Oklahoma should be governed by Oklahomans, not by bureaucrats sitting in Washington D.C. or elected officials from other States.  James Madison wrote in Federalist paper number 45, “The powers delegated by the Constitution to the federal government are few and defined.  Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite.”  The Ninth and Tenth Amendments were added to the Constitution as part of the Bill of Rights to make sure this important right was not ignored.  However, federal courts and Congress have used strings attached to money and outright coercion to usurp the powers of the states.  Let’s restore Oklahoma’s borders.

Audit Everything

Most of our elected officials seem to have forgotten that taxes are the hard-earned money of hard-working Oklahomans.  Too often, as we observed in the last legislative session, when the state runs short on funds, the legislators’ first, and sometimes, only, thought is to go seize more money from the citizens.  They must stop taking the taxpayers for granted.  Transparency and accountability must be returned to government.  Every program must be audited and every program justified, so that every farmer, rancher, business owner, and employee in this state can be confident that every dollar taken is being properly spent.  And when it isn’t, that program must end.

Proper Government

We have clearly forgotten what the functions of proper government are.  We ask government to do too much, and as a result, government gets too big and starts micromanaging our lives, liberty, and property.  We have delegated authority to government, but when this authority is misused, people are hurt.  We must rethink the role government plays in our lives.  Where it has grown too big, it must be restrained.
