The broad-stroke, collective, government approach to education is failing our children. There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to educating our children and preparing them for the future. Parents and guardians, not special interest groups, should be empowered to make the decisions that will best educate their child.
North Carolina has grown to be the 9th largest economy in the county. In order for this growth to continue, we need to ensure that government stays out of the way of private businesses; both small and large. Our state government should not be engaged in the practice of picking winners and losers at the expense of individuals trying to build their own version of the American Dream.
The Bible and the Declaration of Independence is very clear, the first Right granted to us by Almighty God is Life. All other rights are dependent on first being able to live. We should be defending the Right to Life during all it's phases.
COVID-19 and the pandemic has brought to light a troubling truth: those in power will use any excuse to expand the power and control of government. We need strong leadership to stand up to the federal government and say: "We will not allow for the Individual Liberties proscribed by Federal and State Constitutions to be stolen from the people of North Carolina!"
As the government continues to expand their influence and control over the healthcare industry, it is the people who have to pay the price; in the form of higher costs and reduced access to necessary services. We need to promote a system where providers can focus on providing the best individual care possible; free from the burdens of government regulation, costly malpractice insurance, liability and juggling medicaid reimbursement limitations.
While the state government can not control Federal spending or how much money they print, we can reduce the tax burden that our citizens feel at the gas pumps and grocery stores. During these times of inflation caused by an out of control federal agenda, the government should be suffering along side the people, not profiting from it.
