There are eight major issues that are important to Marvin and his campaign. The following are the issues that, should he be elected, will be at the forefront of his work for the people of North Carolina and all citizens of the United States of America.
Protect Life at Conception
I am a firm believer in defending innocent life. There is a soul to save! If you believe in God and believe in heaven, it follows that you believe we have a soul. Our souls go to heaven depending on our belief system. If this is the case, I have one question: when does the soul enter the human body? When the baby is delivered into the doctor’s hands in the delivery room? After 3 months? After 6 months? Why at those times? OR, when the egg and sperm connect, (they die if they don’t) and the magic of creation begins, DNA activates, and God’s design begins! Conception is the only choice for the starting of human life and protecting it.
“I am a firm believer in defending innocent life.”
Eliminate Waste in Washington
The Federal Government has spent $6.8 trillion in 2021. The Federal Debt is up to $28.4 trillion! This debt is unsustainable and the spending is saturated with wasteful programs. This has to be turned in the other direction immediately. Have you heard the cliché phrase: “Work smarter, not harder”? How about we use the following phrase for the Federal Government: “Spend smarter, not spend more”.
I have been making improvements in Corporate America as an engineer for 30 years. This was accomplished using a philosophy called LEAN Thinking. It is a way of identifying and eliminating waste in the process. The result of eliminating waste in the process is creating more value for the customer.
Through strong leadership, excellent teamwork, and thorough knowledge, I have had success saving millions of dollars for Corporate America. When I change my focus and lean skills towards Washington, billions of wasteful dollars can be saved, and the remainder spent on real, value-added programs for the American Citizen.
In addition to saving waste, we need a REAL debt limit that Congress will be committed to. If money is needed, it has to come from waste savings, not additional debt or more taxes.
Back the Blue
We can’t have Law & Order without law enforcement. We all have seen the movies where the bad guys have a certain respect for cops – the attitude of “don’t kill a cop” because the entire weight of law enforcement would come down and eliminate them.
Sadly, since the Obama terms, law enforcement has been vilified, attacked, and disrespected to the point where law enforcement officers have actually been assassinated, and lured into ambushes for harm. Never in my life have I seen this until the last few years.
Most law enforcement is at the State and local levels. However, I will do my part to ensure that Federal and local law enforcement work together – one team, one dream! I will publically support law enforcement to renew the respect and honor they deserve. Be vocal!
“I will do my part to ensure that Federal and local law enforcement work together – one team, one dream!”
Obviously, if we don’t have honest elections and we don’t have a validated government, we don’t have a country. Each state decides its own election laws. The North Carolina Constitution says: “There shall be an election day.” This is a long way away from an “election season”.
The more time there is for elections, the more opportunity for fraud. It is a simple equation – shorter election time equals less fraud. We need to bring elections back to something simple. It has been shown that if the weather is bad on election day, turnout is even lower than normal. A small compromise could be a 3-day window, along with the original absentee ballot system.
Photo I.D. is a must. It is such a common expectation for daily living, any argument against it is ridiculous. Voting is a responsibility. We should treat it as such.
Respect the Constitution
Our government was created to protect us and our private property from each other – people with bad habits or intentions. The government was endowed with this power. What then protects us from the government? The Constitution! It is the job description for the government. The Constitution tells the federal government what it can do, and therefore, also what it can’t do. The federal government has expanded well beyond the limits of the Constitution. This is in part due to government overreach (to be expected), but also because we the people, the employer of the government, have actually asked them to do extra for us beyond the confines of the Constitution. I believe the Constitution in its original form, based on principles and values. It is NOT a “living document”. Based on this, I believe in limited government, which brings back our lost liberty. I will work endlessly to start peeling back the layers of unconstitutional and wasteful programs. I do understand this won’t happen overnight, but just like a standing ovation, one person must stand up first!
Defend the 2nd Amendment
I, like many conservatives, believe in defending the 2nd amendment. I will also add, defending any encroachment to the 2nd Amendment such as limitations, taxes, etc. on ammunition or gun parts. I will not allow for any “work arounds” or back door deals. The Constitution needs to be defended at all costs. It does not yield to executive orders or congressional laws. There is an official way to change the Constitution if you do not like it. It is called an amendment that can be passed with the proper amount of votes.
“I, like many conservatives, believe in defending the 2nd amendment.”
#1 Enemy – Stop CCP
Many Chinese businesses own commercial property, businesses, farmland, and private property in America. Since Chinese business (big) only exists at the permission of the complete, dictatorial control of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), they are, in essence, an extension of the party. This ownership in America is essentially a communist attack from within our country economically. This is already happening aggressively in the many south pacific island countries. This is dangerous and unacceptable. It needs to be monitored and stopped immediately. If you think I am being unfair or xenophobic, just ask the question: “How many American companies own farmland, commercial property, or companies in China?” The result will be a big ZERO! We need to also understand, many Chinese companies are subsidized by their government to get unfair advantages and eliminate their competition on a global level. As Trump said, “We need fair trade, not free trade”.
Secure Border and Immigration Reform
We are a sovereign nation of laws – can you believe Bill Clinton and Barack Obama said that!?!? I agree. A secure border supports our laws and order. Even more important, an open border supports and encourages sex trafficking. What crime can be more heinous than this? Only murder, but I would submit that the victims of these crimes are truly the “living dead” – physically, mentally, and spiritually. This must stop and is truly a sad state of global culture. A border wall is a step in the right direction to reduce this crime.
A secure border needs to be coupled with immigration reform. I am the son of a legal immigrant. I love America. It is very difficult to legally immigrate. Like many or all government systems, there are major opportunities for improvement for hard-working people who want to chase the American Dream. Isn’t it interesting, I’ve never heard the phrase, chase the German dream, the Chinese dream, or the Nigerian dream. We are a nation of immigrants – this is the beautiful heart of America. We are also a nation of laws, which includes legal immigration.
