In 2016 the Trump movement took the White House, and now in 2018 we can take control of Congress. The mainstream media and the Democrats are eagerly anticipating a massive anti-Trump backlash in November 2018, but I say that the mid-term elections will be a golden opportunity to give President Trump dozens of new allies in Congress. The Make America Great Again agenda is a winning agenda, and if we are able to mobilize pro-Trump forces all over the nation we can pull off another miracle next November. But first, we have got to win the Republican primaries that will start happening early next year, because otherwise we won’t even have any pro-Trump candidates to vote for in the mid-term elections.
We have identified several dozen major pro-Trump candidates all over the nation, and you can find that list on Facebook right here. If you know of another pro-Trump candidate that should be added to that list, please let me know.
The mainstream media would like us to believe that Trump’s support is falling, but the truth is that he has very high approval ratings among Republicans from coast to coast. If we can get the voters to understand who the pro-Trump candidates are, we should be able to win primary after primary all over the nation.
In the end, it isn’t that complicated. We just need to take our pro-Trump message and share it everywhere that we possibly can. The following are 25 basic pro-Trump principles that I am running on, and I believe that they could be used as a blueprint for pro-Trump candidates across the country…
#1 A Pro-Trump Conservative – Donald Trump helped restore my faith in America by winning the 2016 election, and I will fight like mad to implement his agenda if I am elected to Congress.
#2 It’s Time To Drain The Swamp – The same rules that apply to the rest of us should also apply to Congress, and all federal officials should be banned from working as lobbyists for at least ten years after they leave government service.
#3 Every RINO Must Go – Way too many Republicans have been fighting Trump’s agenda and acting like Democrats. It is time to hold them accountable, and that means every ‘Republican in name only’ needs to go.
#4 100% Pro-Life – No money for Planned Parenthood ever. Nearly 60 million babies have been murdered since 1973, and I am making an unbreakable pledge to vote against any bill that funds Planned Parenthood 100% of the time.
#5 100% Pro-Gun – The Constitution says that the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. I believe that every American has a constitutional right to carry a gun, and I will never back down from defending the Second Amendment even a single inch.
#6 Abolish The IRS & The Income Tax – We didn’t have an income tax from 1872 to 1913, and that was the greatest period of economic growth in U.S. history. As we fight a long-term battle to abolish the income tax, in the short-term we can at least go to a flat tax or a fair tax, both of which would be far superior to what we have now.
#7 Abolish The Federal Reserve – Since the Fed was created in 1913, we have had 18 recessions, the value of the U.S. dollar has fallen by about 98 percent, and the U.S. national debt has gotten more than 6000 times larger. Abolishing this debt-based system is one of the keys to a bright economic future for America.
#8 Cut Red Tape – As President Trump has proposed, two existing government regulations should be eliminated for every new regulation that is enacted.
#9 Getting Federal Bureaucrats Off Our Backs – I will work very hard to get federal control freaks off of the backs of our farmers, our loggers, our miners, our ranchers and our small business owners.
#10 Local Control Of Education – It is time to get the federal government out of the education business. I want to abolish Common Core and the Department of Education, and I want control over education to be as close to the local level as possible.
#11 Shut Down Big Brother Spying – Government agencies have been conducting unconstitutional surveillance of American citizens for decades, and that needs to stop now.
#12 True Limited Government – President Trump has proposed shutting down more than 60 different government programs and agencies. That would be a good start. Instead of asking which government agencies we should close, we should be asking which government agencies really need to remain open.
#13 100% Repeal Of Obamacare – Rapidly rising health insurance premiums are financially crippling Idaho families. Republicans in Congress have fumbled the ball, and we must repeal Obamacare immediately.
#14 Build The Wall – We need to make sure that everyone comes into this country through the front door. We must end illegal immigration, and so I support President Trump’s call to build a wall on the southern border.
#15 End Sanctuary Cities – President Trump has proposed cutting off all federal funding for so-called “sanctuary cities”, and I will fight very hard to get this done.
#16 Supporting Our Veterans – My father is a vet, and I will work passionately to make sure that our veterans receive the respect, care and support that they deserve.
#17 Fighting Islamic Terror – I fully support President Trump’s fight against ISIS, and I will push for legislation that would give local communities all over America the option to say no to refugees from terrorist hotbeds.
#18 Stopping Reckless Government Spending – We are 20 trillion dollars in debt and we continue to steal more than 100 million dollars from future generations every single hour of every single day.
#19 Bringing Jobs Back To America – The U.S. has lost more than 70,000 factories since China joined the WTO in 2001. Our formerly great manufacturing cities now look like war zones, and we desperately need to start making things in this country once again.
#20 Energy Independence – The United States has abundant reserves of oil, natural gas and clean coal, and we need to take the regulatory shackles off of the energy industry so that we can start moving toward energy independence.
#21 Resisting The Globalists – We must reduce the power and influence of the United Nations, and we must strongly fight all attempts by the globalists to erode American sovereignty.
#22 Supporting States Rights – It is almost as if the 10th Amendment doesn’t even exist today. If I am elected, this is what his message to the feds will be: ‘Hand over the keys and get out of Idaho’.
#23 Removing The Wolves – Under Bill Clinton, Canadian gray wolves were brought to Idaho. These wolves travel in packs and are killing machines. I am 100% committed to removing these wolves from our state.
#24 Holding Judges Accountable – Federal judges that disregard the U.S. Constitution and that choose to legislate from the bench should be subject to impeachment.
#25 An Unashamed Christian – Like President Trump, I am not ashamed to say that I am a Bible-believing Christian, and if we truly want to make America great again we need to return to the values and principles that this nation was founded upon.
If you believe in what we are trying to do, we would love to get you involved in our campaign. We need many more volunteers, many more contributors and many more people sharing the material that we post on our official campaign Facebook page.
We are just a small part of a national movement that is beginning to emerge. It began with Donald Trump’s victory back in November, and it has continued in races all over the nation.
I believe that we truly can take our government back, but it is going to take a total team effort, and we need your help.
In 2016 we witnessed the biggest political miracle in American history, and some would say that taking control of Congress would be an even bigger miracle, but if we all work together I believe that anything is possible.
We shocked the world in 2016, and I encourage you to come join us as we shock it again in 2018.

Almost everyone will find something in my articles that will deeply upset them. That is okay. I am a truthseeker. I just call it like I see it. If you disagree with me on some issues I will not be offended. I hope that you will not be offended if I disagree with you on some issues.
One of the things that you should know about me is that I put a very high priority on love. Even though I write about a lot of heavy issues, hopefully I am doing it with a loving heart. If we want to make it through the times that are coming we have got to start learning how to love one another.
The world is becoming a very cold, cruel place. It sure could use a lot more love.
Another thing that you should know about me is that I am a Christian. And I am one of those Christians that actually believes the Bible, and there are a lot of people out there that don’t like people like that.
I believe that God loves us very much and that He sent His Son Jesus Christ to this earth to die on the cross for our sins.
