Government Spending/Taxation

Government Spending/Growth is out of Control. Even with record setting Stock Market gains the PERS unfunded liability has grown to $25 Billion. When the Market falters this liability could double or triple. 

Trying to increase taxes on business will not solve this unaccountable deficit, it only makes State revenue decrease as they move their business (and jobs) out of State. Lower business taxes means MORE businesses, MORE people employed in private sector and MORE revenue. A Win, Win, Win. 

PERS Information: http://www.oregon.gov/pers/Documents/General-Information/PERS-by-the-Numbers.pdf

ORS240.185 limits State Employment to 1.5% of Oregon Population. With the removal of 1/3 of the State employees by SB242 in 2011, this percentage needs to be lowered to 1%. (ORS 240.185 was changed in 2017 to 1%, Starting January 1, 2018 - GOOD JOB!)


29,600 Moved from State to Local Government - Outside the CAP.

It's a shell game!


 

Education

The current Public Education approach is not working, it needs more competition from the Private Sector. Put Parents back in control of Education with a Voucher worth 70% of what the State is currently spending to allow any parent to be able to afford a Private School education. (This has a 30% savings built-in.) Dedicate  half of General Fund to Counties to Fund Public Education Locally.

School Choice:

Business Climate

With an increasing Minimum Wage, business taxes need to be lowered or eliminated to keep Oregon businesses competitive. Oregon needs to be a Business Magnet. More Private Sector Employment, and fewer Government Jobs equals  MORE Prosperous Oregonians.

One out of Six jobs in Oregon are Government employment, this is unsustainable.

Over $15 Billion in Wages!!!


Natural Resource Management

Natural Resource based businesses:  Farming, Ranching, Logging, Mining, Fishing need to be encouraged by State, less regulated. Counties should manage the People of Oregon's Land within their jurisdiction and receive any revenue generated.


First and Second Amendment Issues

Everyone's Right to Freedom of Speech, Freedom to Worship must be protected. Violent, Destructive protest is criminal, not protected "speech." The right of the People to keep and  bear Arms shall not be infringed. I am a Pro-life Christian Conservative. There should be NO PUBLIC FUNDING of abortion.

Immigration

US Constitution, Article 1, Section 8, paragraph 4 states: The Congress shall have Power to establish an Uniform Rule of Naturalization. This Right has been given to the Federal Government by the States. Immigration is a Federal Issue. States and cities who claim to offer "sanctuary status" are acting unlawfully and unconstitutionally.

2018 Election 

The Oregon Republican Party needs to have Conservative Candidates running in Every Legislative District in 2018. 

(60 House Races and 15 Senate Races.) We cannot allow the Democrats to "walk back into office" unopposed. They need to defend their pro-abortion, anti-gun rights, anti-business, pro-Common Core, failing public school, unlawful, unconstitutional sanctuary state, hesitant wildfire fighting, anti-Christian policies.
