Upholding the Constitution

I am committed to strictly interpreting the Constitution in light of its original meaning and the common understanding of the intentions of our Founding Fathers who wrote and ratified this founding document. Our Constitution is timeless and is just as legitimate today as when it was first written. The principles the Constitution embodies and the system of government it establishes has allowed our exceptional nation to flourish. When I was sworn into Congress, I took an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution and I carry a copy of the Constitution with me in my pocket as constant reminder to uphold its principles.

I believe that our great Founding Fathers implicitly understood the threat posed to individual liberties by a large and intrusive federal government. One of the ways the Founding Fathers sought to limit the power of the federal government was by reserving powers to the individual states, and to the people themselves. I am a firm believer in states' rights, which is why I am a proud member of the Tenth Amendment Caucus, which focuses on restoring the critical balance between the powers of the states and those of the federal government.

Aug 9, 2018 Column

It has become a staple of baseball lore, and I was reminded of it while watching Major League Baseball’s Home Run Derby on television during the All-Star Game festivities.

In 1932, the great New York Yankees slugger, Babe Ruth, is said to have “called his shot.” Some accounts say Ruth stepped up to the plate, pointed to the outfield wall at Wrigley Field, and, moments later, proceeded to hit a towering home run into the stands just above where he had pointed. The Yankees went on to win that game and the World Series.
