For ten years in the Georgia General Assembly, I strove to be a problem-solving conservative reformer. After decades of Democratic rule in the Peach State, after all, there was much work to be done: tightening a lax immigration regime; reorganizing taxes; expanding school choice; protecting the sanctity of life; working towards free-market health care solutions; protecting the Second Amendment; working for criminal justice reform; and defending the helpless victims of human trafficking.
It was a daunting agenda, but it was the program on which I was elected. The U.S. House could use much of the same and it's the principal reason I'm running today.
Now is the time to boot our zombie-lawmakers, to find worthy replacements who will solve problems rather than create them. Now is the time to end the era of aimless congressional grunting and move towards one of progress.
