Political beliefs

Generally, I am strongly conservative, especially on social and fiscal issues, but I also have a strong libertarian streak.

General beliefs

Fundamentally, as an American citizen, I believe that the laws of our legislatures, decisions of our courts, and policies of our leaders, should all tend toward one goal: preserving the Constitution, as well as the principles of life and liberty enshrined in the Declaration of Independence.

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I […] will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

— Excerpt from the oath of office of the President of the United States (U.S. Const. art. II, § 1, cl. 8)

Constitutional issues

I fundamentally deny as logically unsound the idea that the Constitution is somehow a “living document,” whose meaning deviates from the plain letter of the law during the passage of time. The only way that the Constitution can change is if amendments are made to it.

The only way in which the Constitution is a “living document” is in that it is a document that is still binding law on the United States.

Social issues

Abortion

All lives should be protected from the moment of conception on. I am in the process of writing a blog post further explaining my position on this subject.

Homosexuality

Homosexuality is immoral, and homosexual unions should not be given the same legal recognition as traditional heterosexual marriages.

Gun control

I’m in the process of writing a blog post that outlines my position on this subject. An article I wrote about gun violence in schools can be accessed here.

Fiscal issues

In general, the budget must be balanced, the deficit must be eliminated, and a workable plan to pay off the federal debt must be instituted.

Obamacare

Obamacare should be repealed in its entirety. The attached video, used under the fair use doctrine, further explains why I so believe.

Foreign policy issues

Military intervention

The United States should not be entangled in foreign conflicts.
