Change starts with being heard
Making your voice heard.
I believe that parents should be able to choose the school they desire for their children to go, and that we should expand homeschooling opportunities and abolish the Department of Education.
I fully support the legalization of both recreational and medical marijuana. Cannabis possession charges ruin many peoples’ opportunity to gain desired employment, and through my time as an intern at the South Dakota State Penitentiary, I’ve seen firsthand how it is the laws against marijuana, not the marijuana itself that ruins lives.
Protect South Dakota's Balanced Budget
I will make sure South Dakota maintains a balanced budget. South Dakota should be as optimized as possible and the government should only be taxing its citizens for the bare minimum of what the government needs to function in its absolute smallest form.
I believe we should stop allowing legislators to draw up their own districts. It’s common sense. I fully support Drawn Together South Dakota in their efforts to create an Independent Citizen Redistricting Commission in the state of South Dakota.
Ending Corruption in South Dakota
Noem’s relative success in opposition to A+26, along with Attorney General Ravnsborg’s car accident in which he killed an innocent man, lied about it, and still got let off the hook, points to a very, very deep swamp in South Dakota and I will do everything in my power as a legislator to end corruption in South Dakota.
Protecting Second Amendment
I believe the Constitution outlines our right to bear arms very clearly: “shall not be infringed“. Any and all gun laws are unconstitutional and I am fully against any type of gun control or registration.
Ending the Drug War
Rehabilitation is much more effective than wasting people’s lives in jail for a possession or distributing charge. I believe that the best way forward to end the Drug War is the decriminalization of all drugs and rehabilitating addicts instead of throwing them in prison. When I was an intern at the South Dakota State Penitentiary, I got to see that drug addicts would be released from prison, then they would immediately go back to drugs, and then land right back in prison, because the prison did not offer ample rehabilitation opportunities for them to get their life back on track.
