Clayton’s pledge to Tennessee voters:
IF ELECTED, MARK CLAYTON WILL:
*FIGHT TO REMOVE SECRET NATIONAL ID CARDS FROM
TENNESSEE DRIVERS’ LICENSES
*STAND UP FOR FISCAL RESPONSIBLILITY AND AGAINST WASTEFUL
SPENDING BY AN OUT-OF-CONTROL CONGRESS AND PRESIDENT
*WORK TO SHUT DOWN THE RIDICULOUS AND UNQUALIFIED TSA
COMPLETELY AND IMMEDIATELY
*DEMAND THE ENFORCEMENT OF CONSTITUTIONAL PROTECTIONS
AGAINST DRONES AND ELECTRONIC SPYING BY THE GOVERNMENT
AS WELL AS BUSINESSES WHO ALSO SPY ON AMERICANS
*OPPOSE NATO EXPANSION IN EASTERN EUROPE
THREE MAJOR POSITIONS OF THE CLAYTON FOR SENATE CAMPAIGN
1) FOLLOW THE CONSTITUTION, PERIOD
Stop non-declared, endless war policy in Washington. Non-declared, unlimited war is a fundamental danger to liberty as it is endless war from which the Orwellian Super-State derives its power. The U.S Constitution REQUIRES that Congress declare war and THEREFORE PROHIBITS the President from waging unlimited war as long as Congress continues approving funds. A constitutional war declaration necessarily requires Congress to define our enemies as well as what constitues victory. Ask ten US Senators why we are in Iraq today and you get ten different opinions. If Congress would submit to the Constitution, this confusion would not exist. The last time which Congress declared war was World War II.
2) PRO-LIFE/TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE ONLY
We believe that abortion kills millions of innocent people. We also believe that marriage is between only a man and a woman. The government, as under both Bush and Obama, has no business waging tax-funded propaganda campaigns pitting perverted and immoral behavior against religious liberty law and mainstream family values.
3) ORWELLIAN SUPER-STATE SWALLOWS AMERICA WHOLE
The Federal Government forced Tennessee to turn all driver’s licenses into National ID cards with a secret electronic tag inside; and has created gigantic “Fusion Centers” for collecting information to hunt and track innocent Americans against our will; and mandates transexuals and homosexuals grabbing children in their stranger-danger zones in the name of airport security. Meanwhile, Congress continues to bring American workers to our knees, driving up the national debt and sending our economic infrastructure to China and Mexico. The US Congress has betrayed Americans for three decades. We must craft legislation which gives American citizens streamlined and legally inexpensive “cause of action” protections against the Federal Government for secret personal spy attacks and groping or else Americans will be too poor to defend themselves from their own treacherous Congress.
