This is your campaign - I am running to be your voice and return our government to We the People. I am not a politician, and I do not pretend that I know the solution to every problem in Michigan and that I will solve these problems on Day 1.
However, I can promise you this: I will always tell you the truth and I will always do what I believe in my heart is right.
As We the People’s Governor, I will restore transparency, integrity, and freedom to Michigan.
- Guided by our shared conservative values and faith in our Creator, I will
return integrity and honesty to the Governor’s office.
- I will lead on election integrity and restore faith in our election process.
- I will work FOR the people, and be a leader, not a ruler.
- No more secret payoffs, hidden deals, shady trips to Florida and covering up evidence. As Governor, I will clean up the mess Gretchen Whitmer has made in Lansing and open up our government to We the People.
- Corrupt politicians like Gretchen Whitmer have exploited a health crisis to gain power, using executive orders to shut down businesses, keep kids out of school and destroy people’s lives.
- It’s time to take our freedom back and remember that the role of Government is to protect our freedoms, not control our lives.
I want you to know exactly where I stand on some of the most important issues we face.
No more restrictions. No more excessive regulations. No more job-killing policies that make it easier to stay on welfare than go to work.
It’s time to fully re-open our economy, 100% capacity, and get state agencies off of small business owners’ backs.
Governor Whitmer’s egregious lockdowns taught us two things:
- Lockdowns don’t work.
- No Governor should ever have that much power.
Livelihoods destroyed. Family businesses shuttered. Workers forced out of a job. Employers forced to navigate nonsensical regulations that had nothing to do with public health.
Governor Whitmer’s lockdowns simply did not work. Other states did it right, and are doing much better than we are now. They protected their vulnerable people from COVID and didn’t intentionally decimate their state’s economy. We’ve seen families and companies leave Michigan because our Governor wouldn’t let people work - and it didn’t have to be this way.
No Governor should have the power to flip the switch on thousands of small businesses and force millions out of a job.
The damage has been done, and the people of Michigan have not forgotten.
The big box stores have made out alright - and the woke left corporations were bailed out and are doing fine.
Our small businesses and restaurants have been hit the hardest. One-third of restaurants in Michigan - nearly 6,000 - have closed their doors for good.
We need a small business revolution. No more begging corporate elites to move here with an unfair tax code. Our government should put Michigan first - helping our neighbors recover and rebuild while setting a level playing field for small businesses and entrepreneurs to compete.
Even before her lockdowns, Governor Whitmer’s policies were crushing our economy. Her agenda of higher taxes - on businesses, on gasoline (her 45 cent tax would be the
highest in the nation), of red tape and regulations, is the opposite of what Michiganders want and need.
As Governor, our administration would support We the People’s economy - getting our citizens back to work and putting Michigan First.
There is no issue more important than protecting the right to life.
To me, this has never been a political issue. It’s bigger than politics. It’s about our fundamental values as human beings.
I believe that it is our duty to protect the God-given right of all of our children. It is our duty to fight for those who can not fight for themselves.
As Governor of Michigan, I will do everything in my power to protect life and push back against the abortion lobby in Lansing and President Biden’s radical anti-life agenda.
Abortion providers shouldn’t recieve our hard-earned tax dollars.
Pregnancy centers and organizations that help mothers choose life need our support. Compassion, love and empathy will help us protect God’s blessing of life, and the good people of Michigan deserve an unapologetically pro-life Governor.
The future of our kids depends on a quality education, and our school systems must be able to meet our student’s potential.
Our kids have had a rough year - separated from friends, deprived of in-person education, and stripped of the social interaction that is essential to youth mental health and development.
Governor Whitmer doesn’t have a plan for recovering what students have lost this past year. She never has - partisan politics and special interests always came first. Other states successfully and safely returned students into classrooms, where they could learn, grow and thrive in a constructive environment.
Far too many Michigan students have been left behind by virtual instruction. Rural students without strong internet access, kids that rely on public school for meals, community and structure. Students of working parents who were forced to choose between going to work and navigating virtual classrooms.
We’ve seen life-long Michigan families flee to Florida and other states with competent Governors just so that their child has access to a real education. Michigan deserves better - a Governor who takes their orders from parents and families, not corrupt teachers’ unions and political scientists.
As Governor, I will help our kids learn again, address learning loss in a meaningful way, and make sure that no student falls behind because of disastrous executive orders.
First things first, we must get rid of the mask mandates that are not based in science and which hinder our children's academic and emotional development.
We must also give parents a choice and empower them to make the best decision for their child. Lockdowns also proved to many families that homeschooling was a better option for their child, and I will always respect a parent’s right to educate their children how they see fit.
Rebuilding our education system means that all schools - public, private, and charter schools - are equipped to deliver a quality education. Even before COVID, Michigan was near the bottom of the list, and this Governor has done nothing to ensure our students are reaching their full potential. To use our tax dollars effectively, we will prioritize students over systems and families over partisan teachers’ unions.
As Governor, I will invest in education because that is truly the most important investment we can make. Unlike Governor Whitmer, I will sit down with the legislature and develop a plan that bridges the learning gap between rich and poor communities that grew during lockdowns.
Our kids are our future, and their success relies on an education that prepares them to compete in a modern economy while reinforcing our civic values of patriotism, freedom and community.
“Shall not be infringed”
The Second Amendment is essential to being free Americans. None of our other rights matter if we are unable to defend ourselves and our liberties.
The gun rights of law-abiding citizens should never be infringed by power-hungry politicians. Liberal elites don’t understand guns, how they work or what they’re for, and they shouldn’t be dictating how We the People can exercise our constitutional rights.
As the next Governor of Michigan I will defend the Second Amendment against the Democrats’ gun grabs and implement Constitutional Carry, joining states like Vermont, Iowa and Kentucky in allowing citizens to exercise their rights.
Gretchen Whitmer has destroyed our system of checks and balances, and has been ruling Michigan as a tyrant.
It’s been ‘her way or the highway’ from the beginning. She’s refused to work with the people’s representatives in the legislature and has spent the last year governing by executive decrees and the threat of force.
This is not the way our government is supposed to work.
Our elected officials should work together, especially in a crisis. But Gretchen Whitmer exploited a health crisis to gain unprecedented political power, ignoring the legislature and going at it alone.
When the Supreme Court stepped in to stop her destructive and unconstitutional executive orders, she did something I never even knew was possible - weaponized the health department to target small businesses and families just trying to get by.
Our freedoms depend on the rule of law and a system of checks and balances. Governor Whitmer has gotten rid of both, and MUST be held accountable.
As a citizen Co-Chair of the Unlock Michigan campaign, I led the fight to revoke the 1945 law that allowed Whitmer to abuse her power. Because of the hard work of thousands of grassroots activists, we were able to collect over 539,000 signatures in just 81 days, and after months of left-wing attacks, were able to finally get that law off the books.
However, our work is not done - the health department continues to target students, businesses and workers, and their powers must be limited. As Governor, I will work with the legislature to put freedom first and restore power where it belongs - THE PEOPLE!
The 2020 election in Michigan was an absolute disaster.
We all saw what happened in Detroit, and in Antrim County, and it is our responsibility to make sure that this never happens again.
We must have faith in our elections - every Michigander should trust that our process is fair and that their vote counts. An audit of the 2020 election will unveil the truth, identify ways to improve our voting process and help restore faith in future elections.
I support a FULL FORENSIC AUDIT - what do the Democrats have to hide?
Because this Governor and Attorney General refuses to secure our elections, it will take new leadership in Lansing to get the job done.
My administration will expand Voter ID, crack down hard on fraud, make sure every precinct is secure and that every vote is legal.
Ronald Reagan told us that “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction... It must be fought for, protected and handed on for them to do the same.”
Never have these wise words carried more truth than this last year. We saw how quickly so many of our friends, neighbors and family members were willing to give up their liberty in exchange for security.
Insead of using common-sense solutions to combat the spread of COVID and promote public health, Gretchen Whitmer employed radical executive orders that devastated Michigan businesses, crushed our freedoms and kept schools closed for too long. This overreaching blanket approach has caused more long lasting harm to many Michiganders than the virus has.
Our Governor preyed on people’s fear to gain power and used it to violate our most basic American freedoms.
The freedom to worship, the freedom to assemble, the freedom to earn a living, were all under attack by a power-hungry tyrant who believes SHE has the right to control YOUR life.
I understand that our rights come from God, not from the government, and will restore the liberties that Gretchen Whitmer took from us.
No more mandates. No more restrictions. And NO VACCINE PASSPORTS! I will follow the lead of conservative leaders like Governor Ron DeSantis and push back against any politician, bureaucrat or woke corporation attempting to enforce unconstitutional mandates on our students, workers and citizens.
Medical freedom and parental rights are another victim of the Democrats' authoritarian rule - when our movement takes Michigan back, our liberty will be restored.
Make Michigan Free Again!
Big Tech oligarchs are hammering down on conservative voices.
The woke left media, the government, and big corporations have teamed up to censor opinions and beliefs that they don't want to hear, and We the People are fed up.
Our movement has felt the hammer of Big Tech first hand.
In 2020, when patriotic Michiganders joined together to peacefully organize against Governor Whitmer’s excessive lockdown orders, Facebook began targeting anyone who dared to oppose her narrative.
They shut down our group of nearly half a million Michiganders overnight.
Cancel culture has gotten out of control when half the country can be silenced just like that.
Big Tech and the corporate media want to keep us divided. They don’t want people to have conversations, to question the power that the government and big corporations have taken from We the People.
The left will cancel anyone who believes in the American Dream - who know that hard work and personal responsibility will create opportunities for anyone seeking a better life. My family lived the American Dream. But the left calls us ‘systemically racist’ and are poisoning our schools with critical race theory.
We are all Americans, and we all bleed the same. Our nation needs more dialogue, not less, and conservatives must have a seat at the table.
I will stand up to liberal cancel culture and hold Big Tech accountable.
