Christian Agnew is a citizen politician applying for the job and honor of becoming Tennessee's next United States Senator.
"I believe in the Constitution and the rights we are guaranteed within, but I am particularly partial to the 1st, 2nd, 4th and 10th Amendments.
DO NOT tell me when and where I may pray to my God and what I may say, print or question!
DO NOT DARE tread on my right to Keep and Bear Arms!
DO NOT record my phone conversations and emails without my consent or a warrant!
And DO NOT Steal Powers from the States or the People if that Power is not explicitly Stated in the Constitution!
I believe we Must cure the deficit, Balance the Budget and pay off our debts! America we are too blessed to be depressed and I shudder at the thought of what insecurities my five daughters and future generations will inherit! It’s common sense Washington- Be responsible and RUN YOUR FINANCES LIKE AMERICANS RUN THEIRS! DO NOT SPEND MORE THAN YOU MAKE! Pay your bills, pay off your debt and invest in the future! Limit your spending and Stop borrowing money from yourself and other foreign governments!
I believe in limited Legal Immigration as long as you come here to Be an American, do your part, work and contribute to the economy; NOT milk it dry! The Real Problem is tens of Millions of Illegal Aliens here and the Economic and Social Consequences of this PLAGUE! Illegal Aliens MUST be deported and we Must continue to strengthen our borders! Granting Illegal Aliens Amnesty and Pardoning these Crimes is NOT the Answer!
I believe English should be the official language of the United States!
I believe we Must strengthen our military and protect the benefits for Veterans! My Daddy DIED from his service to this Country!
I believe income tax needs to be fixed and it’s prejudice to put SO Much tax burden on Hard Working AMERICANS while all the breaks go to the poor and the wealthy! If we were all created equal, then we all need to pay our fair share of taxes!
I believe that we Must fix welfare! It’s more responsible to buy an individual a fishing pole and some seeds to sew than it is to deliver them a bucket of fish and a cart of vegetables every month! Laziness is more contagious than a COLD!
I believe it is ridiculous that we reward welfare recipients with more money for every additional child they have; yet punish the middle class with a higher tax bracket for working hard and making money!
I believe that parents are responsible for the rearing of their children- Not the federal government!
I believe we MUST impose very strict criteria for granting foreign aid!
I believe Members of the U.S. House and Senate should be bound by term limits not to exceed 12 years per chamber.
I believe the Government derives their just powers from the consent of the Governed- NOT the other way around!
I believe Washington has got way too big for its britches- it needs to be downsized and reminded it is only permitted to exercise those powers delegated to it by the Constitution!
I believe for a short time Washington needs to measure success by the number of outdated and useless laws and programs it repeals!- not the number of STUPID laws and programs it creates!
I believe we can fix the economy by promoting free and fair trade. We must STOP making it so difficult for small businesses to grow!
I believe in “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness” and I believe Washington is impeding on these unalienable rights!"
