Total School Choice is one of my top priorities. I desire complete Religious Freedom. I am Pro-life and I am for what the Arizona constitution says about marriage: that marriage is between one man and one woman.

I want Arizona to be a Constitutional State. Nevada just had Lyon County become a Constitutional County. The Legislature needs to pass a bill for Arizona to be a Constitutional State! We must remember that all leaders swear to uphold the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic. 

 

Furthermore, I strongly support the 10th amendment to the U.S. Constitution which says that, "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution...are reserved to the States." This means that Arizona can have Total School Choice, Marriage between a man and a woman, and we can abolish Abortion, Infanticide, and Euthanasia. I know this is highly debatable, but does the Constitution (which is the supreme law of the land) say that we can't have Total School Choice, Traditional Marriage, or ban Abortion, Infanticide, and Euthanasia? The answer is no it doesn't, so Arizonans can pass these laws if we want too.

I also want no more government shut downs, nor should we have mask mandates, or vaccine passports to deal with COVID-19 and the variants. I advocate immune boosting measures vs. government rules and regulations. I want to emphasize using Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin, among other things. I will educate and promote immune boosters like Selenium (best obtained from Brazil nuts), Zinc, and Vitamins C, D-3, and E. This is what I want all people to do to as a prophylaxis to deal with all diseases, not just COVID. 

 

Prisoners should be able to have visits without being vaccinated. There needs to be major Prison Reforms (ie. more work programs, job training - my prison has a coding class, horticulture, computer use, construction, and electrical classes). Inmates would receive earlier release for objectively verifiable programs and job training completions, along with 1 or more years on a job assignment. There needs to be total GED access for all inmates, and many more religious opportunites, to name a few.

We must fund and support the Police. Violent crime has exploded, and the main function of the government is to keep people safe. We must secure the border (send and keep the National Guard there and thank you Governor DeSantis, along with other governors, for sending us help). 

We must have free and fair elections. I totally support the Arizona Senate's audit of our 2020 presidential election. I will call for a special session of the legislature to deal with the election irregularities. In the last election we had 2 slates of electors. That must never happen again. It's the governor's job to see that the Legislative branch is allowed to do their job. The Constitution states this clearly.

I think it is time for us to have a full-time legislature.

The Arizona legislature currently meets from the second week of January to the end of April. We need to have the legislature available and meeting to deal with the many crazy laws being pushed by the national government. Remember that the 10th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution says that states make the laws, when they are not enumerated in the U.S. Constitution.

The God-given rights enumerated in the Bill of Rights must be what the Executive branch enforces. That's my primary job as governor, to enforce the laws passed by the Legislative branch. The Legislative branch makes the laws, the Executive branch enforces the laws, and the Judicial branch judges if a law adheres to the strict construction of the U.S. and Arizona constitutions (L.E.J. for ledge). We must have each branch of the government fulfill their constitutional duty.

We need a constitutional money system: Indirect taxes vs. direct taxes. Therefore, I want to see no state income tax and no property taxes (for residential properties). The legitimate functions of the government need to be funded by sales taxes and through Zero Base Line Budgeting. 

 

Some people will say that we would really need to raise the sales tax rate in order to get rid of income taxes and property taxes. However, we shouldn't need to raise sales taxes, because of Zero Base Line Budgeting. Zero Base Line Budgeting means that "all expenses must be justified and approved" for each new fiscal year. No more automatic increases to each department or fund. Also, no more automatic funding for any area, unless it is a constitutional area. Did you know that for fiscal year 2021, Arizona has 21 pages of items we fund (and that's just in the table of contents)? The budget is 725 pages long. I think there are some items we can and should eliminate, if we look at the Arizona and U. S. Constitutions for our basis of funding.

 

I recently had a friend question if we should even be funding education. I think it would be good to look briefly at the Northwest Ordinance, in order to better answer that question. It was passed by the U.S. Congress, August 7, 1789. Why is it important, because it explains how new states could come into the union. The third article announced that schools and the means of education were to forever be encouraged. Furthermore, religion, morality, and knowledge were necessary to "good government and the happiness of mankind". Therefore, a proper function of government is to fund education. That is why it is the state's role to fund K-12 education.

Furthermore, Arizonans with a high enough GPA (3.0) in high school or those who pass an entrance test for those that have been home schooled, would be eligible for free college vocational classes. So, if someone wants to be a dental hygienist, welder, carpenter, plumber, teacher, etc. the state would pay for their school in the form of a voucher (like the K-12 system I propose). However, the funding could not be used for CRT (critical race theory) or any such class not specifically related to their trade. Also, only areas that need to be filled would be eligible for state funding. In other words, if we had enough teachers, plumbers, etc. an individual would have to pay their own tuition, in order to become one.

Another thing is I want to see Citizen Representatives, so I'm for term limits for every office. I will only serve 1 term, if elected. 

We must get rid of the Woke Cancel Culture and Critical Race Theory-CRT (I commend Governor Ducey for recently signing bills to stop CRT in the schools of Arizona and stopping it from invading the government here in Arizona). I want to see our schools teach the 1776 project and not the 1619 project.

I am for totally free speech. I wholeheartedly support President Trump's class action lawsuit against Google, Facebook, and Twitter. We must allow what the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution says, "Congress shall make no law...abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press (which is what big tech is doing). Section 230 needs to be greatly changed or rescinded for these companies, which are basically free from lawsuits. They must not be allowed to get away with these gross abuses to the 1st Amendment, if they want to be a free speech platform. 

 

I teach my students the fact that there is ONE race-the Human Race. We judge people, as Martin Luther King Jr. said, not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their Character!

We need to continue to have Arizona be a Right to Work state (meaning people are not forced to join a labor union). However, we need to make sure that at-will employment in Arizona does not do away with the due process rights of an employee. We need to greatly value all employees and treat them the way we would want to be treated. 

I want to see us stop human sex trafficking, child pornography, and extreme adult pornography. 

Also, I would like to see factory farming and puppy mills stopped. I want to see animals treated correctly. 

You might ask, Can all or any of these things be accomplished? Well, I believe Jesus left me on earth, after He saved me from my sins, in order for me to pray and work to these ends. I would like you and all Arizonans to join me in praying and working to see these things become reality!!!

 LIST OF ISSUES

                     EDUCATION

I am for Total School Choice. I want to see school vouchers, where an individual family designates what school the tax money goes to. This way if you want to have your child in a Christian school, Science and Math Academy, Montessori school, Jewish school, Catholic school, or a currently labeled Charter school/Public school, etc., you send him or her there. You are in control of your child's education.

Going further, that would also apply to a child being educated in a Home School. The parent/teacher would receive the $8,905 (for fiscal year 2019 according to azauditor.gov - that is what has been allocated per child/per school year). Just like in the regular marketplace, if a school is not performing (educating your child to your satisfaction) then you will put your child in a better school or you could home school them. Note-This amount would probably go way down with Total School Choice and the quality of education would most definitely go way up.
 
This is of paramount importance, because according to wallet hub.com Arizona is ranked near the bottom for quality of education; 49th among the 51 states, including DC. The best district in Arizona is Catalina Unified School District in Tucson (niche.com). Arizona would move from 49th to near the top with Total School Choice.

Also, this would help parents that find that their child is getting behind in school, because they are not understanding some math concept. For instance, if a child is not grasping fractions, due to the fact that the school uses the Common Core Curriculum, then they can go to a school that teaches that you add and subtract fractions by getting a common denominator vs. the Common Core way of using a number line/ruler to perform this operation (I tutor many students and the need to teach fractions by using a common denominator is one of the biggest math issues that leads to a child falling behind, in math, in their elementary years).

My full-time job is being a GED teacher and the area that most of my students do not understand is how to do fractions and formula problems. The GED test formula sheet changed on the 2014 version of the GED to say that you solve the volume of a rectangular prism by V=Bh. So, my students think that you multiply the base times the height. This, however, is not correct, as volume is 3 dimensional. Thus, you must multiply the length, times the width, times the height (the 2002 version of the GED test used to say: V=lwh). However, Common Core influenced this change. I tell my students to ignore the formula for the volume of a rectangle and just remember that volume means filling something up, so you need 3 dimensions:)

In conclusion, all this information can be summarized by the fact that you decide where your child goes to school and what your child learns; as long as basic metrics in reading, writing, math, science, and social studies are met thru a standardized test (like the Iowa or Stanford achievement tests). This would truly make Arizona a great state for families to raise their children, because parents would have better educated children and they would be less frustrated, particularly with math:)
                   
                         RELIGION
 
Secondly, My motto is Make Christianity, the Constitution, and Arizona great again. What does it mean to make these 3 great again? First of all, let's start with Christianity. It doesn't mean that I want to make Christianity the state religion. Also, it doesn't mean that Christianity, the Constitution, or Arizona, aren't great already. They are and I want to restore their greatness!!! 
So, what does it mean to make Christianity great again? The first amendment to the U.S. Constitution says, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof..." We need to go back to 1620 and the Pilgrims to understand this more fully.
 
Our European ancestors came to America from England so they could have freedom of religion. They were being persecuted there, so they sought a place where they could worship God, as they believed the Bible instructed them. 
 
Today, some would say, but the Constitution teaches the separation of church and state. This, however, is not accurate. This phrase is not found in the Constitution. It was first used by Thomas Jefferson when he wrote a letter to the Danbury Baptist Association in 1801 (in response to their letter to him). The Danbury, Connecticut, group did not want the state to establish one group over another, and thus sanction a state religion. They wanted freedom of religion and to not have taxes go to support one group over another.
Going further, we see that in England, the Church of England, backed by King James, told the dissenters (the Pilgrims) that the correct and only way to worship God was their way. The Pilgrims did not believe the Church of England had the correct beliefs, so they went to Holland (to escape persecution) and eventually came to America.
 
*Historical note-They should have all died on their trip to Holland, as there was a huge storm on the English channel that destroyed every ship, but theirs.
Also, the mast on the Mayflower broke, as the Pilgrims sailed for America. This would have also proven to be fatal, if someone had not providentially brought a screw (that was to be used for a printing press), on their trip. It secured the broken mast  and they were saved.
 
The Pilgrims did not want to worship God, the Church of England way, or have their taxes support that particular church. So, that is the main reason they came to America.
So back to the Danbury Baptist Association. They did not want to have any taxes go to support any particular religious group (ie. the Baptists over the Methodists).  Neither did they want the state to tell people to believe in infant baptism over immersion, and things like that. However, separation of church and state did not mean that the state was supposed to suppress religion and make it so the First Amendment comes to mean freedom from religion, vs. freedom of religion.
We see the state is doing precisely that today. The President and governors are shutting down churches, or telling them if they meet they can't sing. Also, the state is fining churches if they stay open during this CCP virus period. Also, religious groups are being told they have to hire people who don't support their beliefs. Furthermore, the state is telling people they have to support abortion rights, vaccine and mask mandates, gay rights, transgender bathrooms and sports, etc., no matter their religious beliefs. This must stop.
America was built on Judeo-Christian values and only when we return to our founding principles will we be great again. 
A great theologian of the twentieth century, Dr. Francis Schaffer said that, "If there is no absolute to judge society, then society becomes the absolute." That means, if we don't have an absolute standard, then anything goes.
 
That is what we are seeing today. Judeo-Christian moral absolutes do not determine right and wrong anymore, the state does. By the state, I mean that things like the loudest voices, a simple majority vote, the CDC, the WHO, a governor's executive order, or a President's executive orders, Dr. Fauci, etc. are what is determining what is right and wrong.
 
We have seen this in President Biden's first 100 days, with all the executive orders he has issued. We see it in mask mandates from governors (this shamefully happened here in Arizona). These are only a few of the many examples of how our First Amendment rights have been trampled on. 
We have also seen this in the Supreme Court rulings of Roe v. Wade (allowing abortion), and Obergefell v. Hodges (Gay marriage).  Unfortunately, this list goes on and on. This is not freedom of religion (Biblical absolutes), but freedom from religion.
 

 

                            COVID-19
Covid-19, and all its variants, are words that strike fear into our souls. Our society has shut down because of it, we have mask mandates to protect us from it, and now we have Joe Biden telling OSHA to force businesses with 100 or more employees to all be vaccinated. Furthermore, we have vaccine passports to keep it in check. However, is this the way to approach it or any virus for that matter?  As governor, I will push the legislature to ban vaccine passports. Also, we will have no vaccine mandates, mask mandates, shutting down of schools, or the forced closing of any business. I will let people and businesses make their own choices. Also, we will not allow the national government to go door to door to coerce people to get vaccinated (the latest proposal from Joe Biden).
Going further, the governor is sworn to uphold the Arizona and U.S. Constitutions, which are based on the principles of the Declaration of Independence. These documents tell us that rights come from God and governments are instituted among men to uphold these rights. The Declaration of Independence tells us that among these rights are life, liberty,... Therefore, as governor I will protect these rights and educate my fellow citizens of the dangers of things like Covid, but not force you to deal with it one way or the other.
 
Some of the information I would share in order to deal with Covid is that the masks we have been forced to wear are ineffective to stop it. For instance, the N-95 mask is only able to filter down to .3 microns and the Covid virus is a .1 micron in size. 
A story about masks and the absurdity of the mask mandates might prove beneficial at this point. A friend and I were working outside on a covered patio when the ladder my friend was on slipped and fell. My friend ended up fracturing their ankle and having extreme back pain. This individual also was having trouble breathing, as their chest was hurt in the fall. When I called 911, the dispatcher said paramedics were on their way. Then the dispatcher said for my friend to make sure their mask was on. My friend was having a hard time breathing and yet was suppose to put on a mask. That's how far we have come in taking away people's rights and actually endangering them by forcing them to wear masks when it causes them to not be able to breathe properly. Incidentally, I did not insist they wear a mask.
Furthermore, in dealing with the issue of vaccinations, an article published in Epoch Times 5/12/21 by Lawrence Solomon, says that the CDC has changed the way they count vaccine breakthrough infections, because the number is too high. From the CDC website, as of April 26 the CDC reported that 9,245 people have been infected again after receiving the vaccine. Also, the Vaccine Adverse Events Reports (VAERS) arm of the CDC, reported 157,277 adverse events, "including almost 4,000 deaths," after one is vaccinated. Tucker Carlson reported that, "in the first four months of this year, the U.S. government has recorded more deaths after COVID vaccinations than from all other vaccines administered in the United States between mid-1997 and the end of 2013." This is the kind of information I would share and then I would leave it up to you to decide to get vaccinated or not. 
The final thing about dealing with health issues is the importance of the "Immune System"! When we Arizonans face any pandemic, or any medical issue, we need to do it with a strong immune system. Proper exercise, rest, a closer relationship with our Creator, and nutrition are vital. Nutritionally we need Zinc, Selenium (best obtained from Brazil nuts), Vitamins B-3, C, and D, among other things. So, as governor, or a candidate for governor, I advise you to strengthen your immune system. Then we will all be healthier, happier, and freer.
Lastly, according to ameicasfrontlinedocs.com hydroxychloroquine "has been FDA approved for 65 years." It has been given to "pregnant women, breastfeeding women, children, the elderly, and the immune-compromised for years and decades without complication." In their Compendium of HCQ Studies Americas Frontline Doctors state that, "the evidence supporting HCQ efficacy against Covid-19 is also overwhelming. All negative HCQ studies have used either: too much, used it alone (it needs Zinc), or used it late (it should be taken early.) The treatment dose is 200 mg HCQ twice a day for five days + Zinc 50 (elemental) daily. The prophylactic dose is 400 mg. HCQ weekly + Zinc 50 (elemental) daily. I strongly support the use of hydroxychloroquine.
 
To summarize, I would advocate for hydroxychloroquine combined with zinc, in proper doses, and Ivermection to prevent and treat Covid-19, not forced vaccinations.
The bottom line, as an educator governor, all of us will be better educated to make our own choices and thus not have the government make them for us. After all, we want to be free to live our lives in freedom not bondage (Capitalism vs. Socialism\Communism). More to come on this, in the following sections.
                             CRIME
Next, I would like to talk about violent crime, especially in light of the 1 year anniversary of George Floyd's death. Since there has been so much said and done about defunding the police and police reform, we should be seeing violent crime decrease. However, violent crime nation-wide has gone up 30% over the last year. That is the largest increase in United States history. In fact, from 1993 to 2016, according to the FBI, violent crime went down 49%. Going further, over the last year in Minneapolis alone there have been 19 children that have been shot. Most major cities, and they are usually run by Democrats, have seen a 100% or more increase in violent crime.
The answer for some has been that we need to defund the police, decrease police staffs, and get rid of qualified immunity. I want to see more police presence, more funding for police departments, and to see qualified immunity remain, but with proper accountability measures. The main constitutional function of government officials is to protect its citizens and give us the "unalienable rights" of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness (the right to own property). I also want to see leaders push back against the idea that the police are the bad guys. I live in a community where there are many police cars in many driveways and we have a very low crime rate. Police presence, not police absence, is what will bring about a decrease in violent crime that we had for so many years, before the defund the police movement started.

                     The U.S.  CONSTITUTION

The 10th Amendment to the United States Constitution is one of the most important amendments. It states that, "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people." This means that Arizona can make its own laws, if they don't violate the Constitution. Here are 2 examples:
In Arizona, we have made laws distinct to our state. We made a law that 4th and 6th graders must say part of the Declaration of Independence. They are to say, "We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed."
 
Also, in Arizona, we can give our state tax liability to a public or private school vs. the Az. Dept. of Revenue. 
Continuing, we have seen this amendment be greatly abused/usurped. We saw this in the Supreme Court ruling of 2016 (in the Obergefell v. Hodges case), when they said that gay marriage was now the law in all 50 states. This supposedly struct down the Arizona law (Article 30, Section 1) that said marriage is between one man and one woman (several other states also had their marriage laws struck down). However, no where in the Constitution does it state that marriage is between a man and a man or a woman and a woman. So, the U.S. Supreme Court usurped their authority by ruling in this way.
Going further, we need to again remember that all public officials swear to uphold the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of Arizona against all enemies, foreign and domestic. 
Also, the Second Amendment is of extreme importance. We must be able to defend ourselves inside and outside our homes. The Second Amendment says, "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." I totally support our right to defend ourselves.
I am very sad that our officials do not completely support these God-given rights, so that is one of the main reasons I am running for governor. As governor, I would do everything within my power to uphold the strict construction of the Arizona and U.S. Constitutions. 
               CLOSING THOUGHTS
In the coming weeks, I will share many things of what can and should be done to make my 3 motto's great again. For now I want to close with a prayer from Jehoshaphat in 2 Chronicles 20 of the Bible when he said, "LORD, the God of our ancestors, are you not the God who is in heaven? You rule over all the kingdoms of the nations. Power and might are in your hand, and no one can withstand you." As he (and we) face many enemies he said, "Our God, will you not judge them? For we have no power to face this vast army that is attacking us (today, things like socialism, communism, humanism, relativism, democrats, and many foreign powers, like China and Russia). We say with Jehoshaphat, "We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you." I pray our eyes will be upon my/our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, before it is too late.
God has miraculously and providentially formed only 2 nations in the history of mankind. Those 2 nations are Israel and America. Israel went into Assyrian (722 BC) and Babylonian captivity (586 BC), because of their disregard of Biblical principles. America is headed the same way if we don't turn back to God and the principles our nation was founded on.
