Gun-Free Zones Hurt Law-Abiding Citizens!

Restricting the rights of law-abiding citizens does help in one way..... it helps violent criminals take advantage of us!

"Over 90% of public mass shootings take place in “gun-free zones” where civilians are not permitted to carry firearms."

McHenry Has To Go!

Most of you have heard of Maxine Waters by now. That's right, the socialist-supporting, race-baiting, historically-corrupt Maxine Waters. She does, however, have one supporter in her corner. None other than our very own, Patrick McHenry.

You'd think someone who claims to be conservative would despise her, but instead he had this to say, "[…] I’ve got a very good relationship with and have been able to pass serious legislation with Maxine Waters. I’ve got enormous respect for Maxine; I think she’s smart and capable. I think we’ve got opportunities to do more in the future. And I just like her. […]

Know who you are voting for on May 8th! Our country is at stake!

Huge Win Today

Huge win today for America and one of our greatest allies. OUR President announced the recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Of note, the only time all religious groups have been afforded the opportunity to completely move around the holy sites freely, has been under Israeli rule.

December is National Impaired Driving Prevention Month

In the midst of the holiday season we are sure to see a friend or family member who has had too much eggnog. Lets keep our friends, family, and everyone on the road safer by preventing impaired driving. The few extra minutes to call a cab or friend for a ride is an easy choice over the few seconds it could take to turn holiday joy into a tragedy.

Happy Thanksgiving!!

I would like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving Day. I hope we can focus on being thankful for our families and the opportunities we have in this great nation. Below is the final paragraph from Abraham Lincoln’s 1863 Thanksgiving Day proclamation. I think it is fitting since today we also have some civil unrest, though very different. I am confident we can continue to push forward and prosper together if we trust in God, Love one another, and remain thankful for the things we have.

“It has seemed to me fit and proper that they should be solemnly, reverently, and gratefully acknowledged, as with one heart and one voice, by the whole American people. I do therefore invite my fellow-citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next as a day of thanksgiving and praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the heavens. And I recommend to them that while offering up the ascriptions justly due to Him for such singular deliverances and blessings they do also, with humble penitence for our national perverseness and disobedience, commend to His tender care all those who have become widows, orphans. mourners, or sufferers in the lamentable civil strife in which we are unavoidably engaged, and fervently implore the interposition of the Almighty hand to heal the wounds of the nation and to restore it, as soon as may be consistent with the divine purposes, to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquillity, and union.”
-Abraham Lincoln

Where do we cut spending?

I called Patriot radio's news show, Breitbart News Daily, to discuss questions about where we can cut spending. I pointed out that a review of government programs is in order. Our government has grown so tremendously, and we have duplications throughout the system. We need to conduct a complete audit and identify redundancy, inefficiency, and/or obsolete programs. Then they need to be restructured or just cut completely.

We also need to start pulling funding from amnesty programs and sanctuary cities. After that, we need to require proof of citizenship for enrollment in federally funded programs. As an example, the WIC program, which is federally funded through the Department of Agriculture to the tune of $6 billion, requires no proof of citizenship to enroll. If people want to donate money to support illegal aliens in need, that's their choice, but OUR tax dollars are not the answer!

Liberal students love tax plan when they don’t know it is Trump’s

You’ll love this video if you haven’t already seen it. More proof that OUR President is trying to do good things for this country but the liberal media misleads people to the extent that the mere mention of his name turns some away. Be informed people! Let’s make this next election count! Put people like myself in the Capitol Building so we can get things done!

Pulling for ASU this weekend!

Always great to see an institution appreciate our veterans and give thanks! Much respect to the players and coaches for this display of class.

It Is Time For a Fair Deal

It is time for the ineffective establishment and the good ol’ boys club to go. People are sick of the “business as usual” attitude in the Capitol Building. We are tired of town hall meetings that give us a “me vs you” sensation and only happen when an incumbent has a challenger. We have got to start changing the way we vote if we want to see changes in Congress.

Career politicians who continue to be elected simply because they drown their opponents in money are killing American democracy. Personal agendas, special interest obligations, and party leadership ambitions have no place in a true representative government. Too many individuals and institutions in government have forgotten the label public servant and what it means to truly be a servant to the people.

Our President is doing his best to truly “Make America Great Again.” He is trying to secure our borders, build our military back up, lower our taxes, rollback onerous regulations, and get rid of the disaster that is ObamaCare. He needs members of Congress who are going to help him do this effectively and permanently.

I will work with our President to bring these needed bills to the floor. I can dedicate all of my time and effort to your concerns and these national issues because I have no obligation to entertain lobbyists and special interest groups. There is absolutely no reason that hundreds of thousands of dollars and up to 85% of a representative’s campaign funds should come from outside their district and state.

I will work hard to put an end to the practice of fixing government incompetence by asking you for more of your pay check. No more asking the working class of America to pump more and more money into programs that are setup to be taken advantage of by people unwilling to work. Let’s get rid of amnesty for illegal immigrants and require federal programs to document proof of legal status. I’ll vote to remove congressional exemptions from the laws THEY pass; specifically, in regard to health insurance. Maybe if some members could see first-hand how bad some of these programs are, they will work harder to improve or get rid of them.

I have lived in the 10th district. I have gone to school in the 10th district. I have actually held a job in the 10th district outside of campaigns and politics. I have a great feel for the mood of the 10th district, but this DOES NOT mean I can assume without listening. I will be a true representative, a true public servant, and I will be visible and accessible to the people in the district.

It Is Time For a Fair Deal! Let me help make the changes you are asking for. Vote Ira Roberts on May 8th, 2018!

Constitution Day

Huge recognition to Mountain View Elementary school for putting together a presentation in support of Constitution day!

I watched America's future generations voluntarily come together after school hours to sing the National Anthem and read from The Constitution! Truly amazing; this is the stuff the news should be covering! (more photos under the "photos" tab)

Just sharing a proud moment

Yours truly, with former President George W. Bush.

September 11th
