My Pledge

To the voters of South Carolina, I promise to:

· Honor Christ in everything I do (Romans 11:36) 

· Redefine what it means to be a United States Senator from the beautiful state of South Carolina

· Articulate a message of “inspired conservatism” through the principles of God’s Word and bring that approach directly into the legislative process 

· Establish a defined set of governing principles by building a recognizable and consistent “brand” 

· Create a leader’s vision to help cast the hope and confidence of a brighter tomorrow 

· Demonstrate a statesman’s approach to governing in which our children, grandchildren, and people in all walks of life can admire, revere, and look up to the position of Senator  

· Work tirelessly to overturn Roe v. Wade 

· Oppose all forms of legislation that are aimed at controlling our guns and limiting our right to bear arms and the right to due process under the law 

· The Team LaPierre For Christ political committee will assemble a team of political consultants, advisors, and volunteers who abide by the rule of law, are concerned with rebuilding the moral and spiritual foundations of South Carolina, and desire to manifest lives that are above reproach 

· Drive and support legislation that will help South Carolinians thrive economically

· Propose and support all legislation that removes regulatory barriers and unnecessary red tape

· Support a Constitutional Amendment that defines marriage between a man and a woman 

· Advocate for an educational system that brings primary responsibility back to the state level through strategic initiatives including vouchers, ESA accounts, tax credits, and private school choice options that helps to raise the educational performance bar in South Carolina for both students and teachers

· Oppose the Equality Act and any of its alternative forms so that we can keep South Carolina anchored to the principles of God’s Word and the moral and spiritual foundations necessary to help us thrive and grow

· Legislate for the security of our sovereign borders through the construction of a wall; deportation of those who are in our country illegally; close loopholes detrimental to legal immigration and our national safety; rewrite the existing asylum laws; and use all diplomatic, economic, and national emergency means necessary (military) to keep our country from harm

· Champion the cause of prayer in our public schools; Bible education through Released Time programs and other faith-based training models; along with a traditional view of history and how Christian principles have been the “salt and light” and guided our country toward American exceptionalism  

· As a former athlete at both the collegiate and professional levels, be the torch bearer for those parents who do not want to see their children exposed to the unfair and harmful effects of transgenderism in public facilities and in sporting events  

· Limit myself to 2 terms and propose legislation for term limits at the congressional level that will help diminish the influence of lobbyists, professional political operatives, and other institution bureaucrats who are more concerned with power than they are with laws that promote the general welfare of our state and country

· Donate a majority of my salary to charity and other nonprofit institutions in order to take a leadership position on this issue and set the tone for future elected Senators from South Carolina and beyond 

· Refuse the elite health care program offered to U.S. Senators and maintain my current middle class participant “share program”

· Expose the socialist element on our shores and work to educate the people of South Carolina of its devastating and negative impact to liberty, freedom, and economic mobility

· Support a strong military (peace through strength as a deterrent) and take care of our veterans  

· Oppose Supreme Court Justices that have a predisposition toward a progressive, liberal, and elastic view of our Constitution vs. a traditional and originalist approach

· Be true to my beliefs and make decisions that are good for South Carolina without the intrusion of alternative political ambition and motive

· Strive to be a public servant and servant leader vs. a politician and professional political operative 

· In sum, advocate for “The New Frontier of Christian Conservatism” that helps restore the principles of God’s Word, morality, decency, and a love for our fellow citizens
