Larry Meyers Stands for Constitutional Principles

 

Limited Government

I support a return to limited government under the U.S. Constitution.  We must cut federal spending and balance the budget. The federal government should not be involved in universal health care, education, housing, and welfare.  Let’s return power to the States and the people.

Constitutional Rights

Our nation was founded on the self-evident truth that all people are endowed by God with the rights to life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness.  The proper role of government is to protect these rights, so the people can govern themselves.

I support the unborn child’s right to life.  To protect life, we must de-fund Planned Parenthood and appoint judges who will overturn Roe v Wade.

I will oppose all government efforts to infringe on our Constitutional rights, including our 1st Amendment rights to free speech and religious freedom and our 4th Amendment right to privacy.

I support our God-given and 2nd-Amendment-protected right to bear arms for protection against crime and tyranny and will not support any gun control measures.  I favor personal responsibility and encourage individuals to protect themselves, their families, and their communities through safety preparations and training and concealed or open carry.

National Defense

I support a strong national defense, in the tradition of President Ronald Reagan, and a foreign policy of non-interventionism, as established by President George Washington.  Our military must be strong enough to deter all threats, but we should stay out of foreign wars, unless waged in defense of our nation and our allies.

 

Health Care Freedom

The federal government should not be regulating our health care decisions.  Allowing insurance companies to compete across state lines and removing coverage mandates is the best way to reduce premiums and improve options and services.  We must fully repeal ObamaCare and return to the long-lost days of free markets in health care and insurance.

 

Illegal Immigration

I support legal immigration reforms that will open America’s doors to the best and brightest who want to work, study, and live here, while keeping out terrorists and criminals.  Our current chain migration and visa lottery programs should be replaced with a merit-based system.

I support securing our borders with a wall, where needed, and a fully-funded and staffed Border Patrol.  We should aggressively enforce our border and employment laws and cut funding for sanctuary cities.  I oppose amnesty for those who have entered or remained in our nation illegally.

Public Lands and Energy

I will fight for the return of our public lands to State and private ownership.  I support multiple uses of our public lands for recreation, ranching, drilling, and mining and will oppose restrictions on access to our natural resources.  We can achieve energy independence by opening up our lands to responsible uses.

Education

Parents should control their children’s education through school choice options at the local level.  I oppose ESSA (and Common Core) and will work to de-fund it and to eliminate the federal Department of Education.

Religious Values

I support prayer, traditional marriage, and the right of all people to practice their religion as they believe fit within the constraints of the law.
