         No increase in federal funding for education

We are currently throwing away hard earned taxpayer dollars into an educational system that is broken.  We must first change the system before we can see any long term substantial improvements in public education in South Carolina.

Gun Control

I believe that gun violence in America is a matter of the heart of man, and that is where the issue will ultimately have to be addressed for there to be any long term solution to the problem.

The opioid epidemic has destroyed and claimed the lives of too many South Carolinians.  Prescription pain medications in many instances have awful side effects and can be addictive. The federal government’s prohibition against marijuana is an issue that needs to be address in helping to solve the opioid crisis.  I fully support the legalization of marijuana for medicinal purposes.  However, I do not support legalizing marijuana for recreational use.  Once marijuana has been legalized for medicinal purposes, I would support leaving it to individual states to decide if they want to legalize it for recreational use.

Immigration Reform

We need strict enforcement of criminal charges against businesses who knowingly hire illegal Immigrants. This would be the first step slowing the flow of illegal immigrants into our country.

Their Soil Not Ours!

The United States must engage and fight our enemies around the world on their soil and not ours!  We must NEVER have another 9-11 in our country where nearly 3,000 of our country men and women were killed by our enemies on American soil.

Therefore, the United States must do what is necessary for however long it takes to prevent our enemies from carrying out attacks on our homeland and American interests around the world.
