Do you like the idea of power being in the hands of a very small group of people at the "upper levels", or do you believe power should remain vested in the greater body of "We the People"?
As your New National Committeeman, it will remain my daily focus to ensure that the real power remains squarely in your hands. I am a solid conservative constitutionalist. I believe in a government that is by the people, for the people and by consent of the people. America is a Democratic Republic. We are guided by the best human governmental document in the history of the world. That document gives you a Democratic right to "hire" any person you believe will best uphold that document, the U.S. Constitution. You may also collectively fire any individual whom you believe is not properly upholding that document.
Since we are part of a country that believes in upholding the Constitution and its foundational principals, can you think of any reason we should not expect our Republican party to do exactly the same? If you answer "no" to that question, then you and I are together. This is one major reason why I will serve you well as your New National Committeeman. As we go about implementing the Four Pillars, and especially the "Mobilization Pillar", we will seek out great men and women to step up as candidates in our party who will not shrink from this great responsibility of upholding the Constitution of the United States.
My fundamental belief that the power is vested in the people will also help guide the manner in which I vote regarding the rules and issues of our party. It falls in line with a genuinely representative government. Indeed, it was the concern of founding America that significantly brought on the Revolutionary War; fair representation. As your New National Committeeman, I will be dedicated to ensuring that all 99 counties in Iowa have an equal measure of respect. Since the National Committeeman is elected by delegates in all 99 counties, can you think of any reason why every one of them should not get equal measure of respect? If you answer "no" to this question, then we agree, a New National Committeeman in Iowa is long overdue!
I am passionate about becoming your new National Committeeman. I will represent you with dignity and honor. I will always listen to your concerns and I will work alongside our new State Central Committee members to ensure that you are getting answers to your questions. Many of you have expressed frustration about getting resources for your county party. I will be committed to hearing your requests and promptly assist in getting the resources you and your central committee need to run an efficient organization so you can effectively do the hard and rewarding work of electing Republicans.
Additionally, no one will work harder at the RNC to make sure that the Republicans in Iowa are respected and listened to. Without any doubt, I will make it well known that Iowa Republicans want to remain first in the Nation with the Caucus to Convention process. In addition, our Iowa values as Republicans and our solid stance on remaining a party that upholds the constitution as a Republic will be doggedly promoted. I believe Iowans are among the most intelligent people in America and we hold some of the highest standards in ethics and morality. Thus, I will insist that the RNC continues to uphold the principles of individual responsibility and liberty, adherence to traditional moral standards, a strong national defense, a free enterprise system and equal God-given rights for all. To have Respect for the sanctity of human life, and freedom of religion and the free exercise thereof. Most Iowa Republicans believe in retaining the original intent of our Constitution. Most Iowans believe high moral character is a necessity for public servants. Most Iowa Republicans believe the highest standard of character should be embodied in both private and public life. The Republican Party of Iowa has written into its Preamble that we should "encourage the proliferation of these principles and their passage to future generations".
I could not agree more. If this is the sort of leadership you desire to have at the state and national level, then you and I agree, it is time for a New National Committeeman in Iowa. I would be honored to have your vote to represent you and every Iowa Republican to the RNC on June 13, 2020. Together we can build on our successes and make an even greater Republican Party. May we join together in this endeavor!
