PAT ON THE ISSUES

Double-click to edit this text

Economy

The extreme base of the Democratic party and the policies of the Biden Administration are wrecking an economy that was roaring in years past. Their runaway spending, out of control inflation, crippling energy prices and high taxes are ruining lives right here in Mecklenburg and Gaston Counties. We need a leader who knows what it’s like to sign the front of a paycheck; a business owner who employs over 50 people and knows how to stick to a budget. I will fight to curb inflation, cut wasteful spending, decrease taxes, and lower energy prices.


Energy

America’s energy problem is an economic crisis and a matter of national security. We must act now to become energy independent. We can no longer afford to buy oil and other resources from our enemies. We need an all-of-the-above approach to energy that aggressively puts America on the fast-track to independence. That includes domestic oil exploration, pipeline construction, fracking, nuclear energy development, solar, wind, coal, and all other forms of energy that America has proven we can produce cleanly, safely, efficiently and effectively.


National Security

President Biden’s Afghanistan disaster was criminally incompetent. Now that incompetence is on display again as Russia slaughters innocent civilians in Ukraine. Here is the simple truth: when America fails to lead the world burns. The weakness that America has displayed not only creates opportunities for international conflict, but it presents serious national security threats here at home. As a Green Beret combat Veteran, I know firsthand the dangers that we face inside and outside of our borders. We must reinvest in our military, and give our soldiers the tools and support they need to do their jobs. And we must reestablish America as the world’s leading superpower.


Immigration

Right now, under President Joe Biden, we don’t have a border. And if we don’t have a border, we don’t have a country. Open borders are a direct threat to our national security. From gang violence to sex trafficking and drug smuggling to terrorism, the open border policy of the Biden Administration threatens all of us. We need to secure our border– immediately – and enforce Federal law.


2nd Amendment 

Firearms are a valuable part of our identity as Americans. From firearms, we derive our ability to hunt, defend ourselves and our families, and secure our freedoms. As a Special Forces combat Veteran and owner one of the fastest-growing manufacturers of firearms and firearm components in the country, I am keenly aware of the importance of the 2nd Amendment and what it means to us as Americans. I will always fight to protect our right to bear arms.


Election Integrity

When I vote as a resident of North Carolina, I do not have to show identification or confirm my identity in any way. As the right to vote and change the government peaceably is one of the most sacred foundational responsibilities of our citizenry, we must endeavor that the result be secure, trusted, and willingly accepted—or we will have lost our country. We must pass election laws that make it easier to vote, harder to cheat, and that push power down to the local and state level. Voter ID laws should be encouraged in states all over the country.
