Ron Swanson

The only man for the job

A Senator for the People

A homegrown Conservative, Ron Swanson aims to make America into a successful and powerful leader of freedom and democracy that will set an example for nations around the world to follow. As a United States Senator from Indiana, Ron will represent Hoosier beliefs on one of the most important fronts for achieving these goals; through the legislation of our great nation.

My Beliefs by Ron Swanson

My Stance on a Few Social Issues

Abortion:

I strongly believe that a baby, even before he/she is born, is still a living human being with the same inherent rights as everyone else: life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. As such, I consider abortion to be a sin and a danger to human life that needs to be stopped.

Gun control:

Along with my belief that everyone has a right to life, I also believe we all have the right to protect our own lives as well as the lives of our loved ones. For some people, including myself, owning and knowing how to use their own gun is the best way that they feel they can do that.

My Immigration Policies

I believe when it comes to immigration, we need to be more thorough in our knowledge of who it is that is coming into our country. The threat of terrorism is too great to be ignored or set on the back burner to be letting just anyone into our country. While there will possibly be terrorists that already live in the US, that doesn't mean we can't help keep others from getting in under false pretenses and causing another attack like that on September 11, 2001. We also need to find better ways to prevent illegals; for example, we could make the border less accessible or the proper citizenship process more accessible to those who would like to live in our country.

Economic Policies

One of the major points I argue against is the large amounts of government regulation and assistance that has increased over the years in the economic sector. The American people are becoming too dependent on government benefits and financial assistance, but I agree with the statement, "A government big enough to give you everything you want, is a government big enough to take away everything that you have." Besides, if people become too content and dependent on government financial aid, why would they decide to try to go back to work?


I would also like to tackle the budget by trying to lower government spending as a first step to a level that will be lower than the amount we are taking in through taxes without raising taxes too much if at all. Once we have done that and the expected surplus occurs, then we might be able to lower taxes to a certain degree so long as we can keep government spending down. A good place to start cutting government spending in my opinion would be in welfare programs; things like Obamacare, food stamps, or things of that nature.
