The Oklahoma Republican Party has the opportunity and the responsibility to be the leader this nation needs at this moment in time.
It is evident by watching our current candidates for president that We the People are tired of the lip service and show votes by those who claim to be Republicans. Our party platform is extremely clear, and yet some have changed it for self-promotion into two words – “situation ethics.”
As I have traveled the state, it is easy to see that the OKGOP is full of hard-working, dedicated people who want to make a difference. Our work for 2016 is to elect men and women who will set a high standard of integrity congruent with the party ideals. If the Republican Party fails to represent the values of the Republican voters, then we have failed.
Our Young Republicans are growing in numbers, and we must support them as our future leaders. It is our duty to them to put a halt on the cancer that is corruption of government, and to give them an inheritance with the opportunity to thrive. The OFRW is a great group of women that make a tremendous difference in their communities. The members of R.O.P.E have fought for years to protect the educational freedom of our children. The 2nd Amendment groups help keep us focused on our constitutional right to keep and bear arms. There are many other groups that also work at preserving our freedoms. These groups of concerned citizens are the heart and soul of our society.
I have a plan and a purpose to strengthen and grow these groups of grassroots Oklahomans by finding leaders in each and every precinct and county in the state of Oklahoma. We will be of service to these leaders, and help give them the tools they need to reach out to their friends and neighbors. When Republicans discuss issues, we win. When we uphold the values stated in the Republican platform, we win. When we interact with people, neighborhood by neighborhood, we will grow. By including every precinct, we will automatically include every ethnicity and every social class. People are people. Most are concerned for the good of their family, and the Republican platform supports people and families of every background.
The Republican Party will be unstoppable when we integrate the techniques of the best business plan together with the integrity and character that aligns with God’s word. I will provide training to build those qualities in teams all across the state of people who believe in smaller government, individual freedom, and personal responsibility. It is imperative that we honor the goals our founders set before us of Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.
I will continue to promote the Minuteman program as we build the county parties. It is an excellent plan and as we get the people involved, I will emphasize the importance of having some skin in the game. The Minuteman program is an excellent tool to build team spirit for the Republican Party. When people know their ideas will be heard, and they contribute to the success of the party, the people will have a sense of ownership. Not only are they more likely to vote, they will be more likely to study the issues and uphold Republican values. They will be more inclined to work on campaigns when they know how to make a difference.
I will reach out to businessmen and women across the state. I will involve people from every walk of life. Our party should be full of the producers of this state from the entry level employee to the CEO. A truly free market gives hope to the unemployed and the underemployed. Our education system should give students the capacity to be all God created them to be, and should allow parents to choose the path that most suits the needs of their family without penalty. The platform of the Republican Party is for those who choose to work hard and make personal sacrifice to have the freedom to succeed beyond their wildest dreams. including learning from mistakes along the way.
I have a lifetime of experience to lead the OKGOP. I have a solid record as Chairman of Canadian County and Chairman of District 3 of giving everyone a seat at the table, to share ideas, and build up one another. I have experience as a candidate and experience campaigning for others. I have experience in administration and in training people to work hard to reach their goals. I will always seek the truth, not the spin. I will give every primary candidate a level playing field to present themselves to the voters of the great State of Oklahoma.
All of us, working together, will continue to make a difference!
