Our liberties are under attack.
Our rights as citizens are being ripped away by a runaway federal government, people are terrified – blaming each other for the current situation – and our country is divided by two political parties that obviously serve the same master.
It’s true – our country needs help at the federal level – but we can easily take power back at the State level. This is part of that famous system of checks and balances they teach you about in school — but never fully explain.
The founders left specific protections in the form of checks and balances so the states (and their citizens) couldn’t be overrun by a tyrannical, federal government or a power-hungry president.
One of the most powerful checks on the federal government is called the 10th Amendment. Here in California, you’ve already seen evidence of the 10th Amendment in use and didn’t even know it:
* Same Sex Marriage
California was the 4th state to legalize same sex marriage and helped to pave the way for federal recognition of same sex marriage.
* Cannabis Legalization
In 1996, California passed Proposition 215, which legalized cannabis for medical use. In 2016, California passed the Adult Use of Medical Marijuana Act, and legalized recreational cannabis use.
The 10th Amendment has successfully blocked federal overreach in many other states as well.
By upholding the 10th Amendment, and the other rights given to us in the Bill of Rights, the people can take their nation back from the hands of the fatally corrupt federal government.
That’s why I’m committed to upholding the 10th Amendment and States’ Rights. After being elected as a member of Congress, I promise to uphold the 10th Amendment in each congressional vote, to hold our new President accountable to his constitutional duties, and to protect and serve the people of California.
But in order to protect your rights, I need your help!
Launching a real campaign can be quite costly when you’re not in the pocket of special interests … and that’s why I am reaching out to you…
I’m already out of pocket several hundred dollars — and that’s just a drop in the bucket compared to what a half-way decent campaign costs. I need $1,700 to file my registration, $5,000 for my candidate statement and additional cash to pay for marketing, advertising, campaign consulting and extra sets of helping hands.
Please consider a donation to my campaign so I can fight for our rights in Washington and protect the people of California! Even $10 or $20 helps, as many hands make light work.
Thanks for reading!
Your hopeful representative,
Libertarian Nominee for the 34th Congressional District
