In 1789, the newly formed United States ratified our Constitution, the ultimate guiding document for our nation. In the preamble to the Constitution, the Founding Fathers wrote: “In order to form a more perfect Union.” I think we often forget that the American experiment began with the idea we would grow as a nation—always improving, always building, always crafting something better.
The States were not perfect when they assembled into a country, and we remain imperfect today, but we have come a long way since 1789. Before the United States, every great civilization—with few exceptions—lasted 200 years or less. The reason we are so privileged to celebrate our upcoming 250th anniversary rests in the wisdom of the Constitution and the ultimate sacrifice of those who gave their all defending the flame of liberty. To them, and to the drafters of the Constitution, we owe an unpayable debt of gratitude.
Despite the Left’s frequent attempts to undermine the Constitution and disregard the wisdom of our Founding Fathers, justice has recently prevailed. The Supreme Court issued a series of decisions this summer that affirmed the Constitution and upheld the rule of law. In New York Rifle and Pistol Assn. v. Bruen, the Court protected our Second Amendment rights. In Dobbs v. Jackson, the Court overturned Roe and Casey and saved the lives of countless unborn children by undoing decades of terrible jurisprudence. And in Kennedy v. Bremerton School District, the Court protected free speech and the free exercise of religious expression.
The Constitution keeps winning but the fight is far from over.
I’m running for the Arizona State House of Representatives because the Constitution is under attack. For me, the Constitution is second only to the Bible, another vital document that changed the course of history. However, the leftist mob wants to pull our society apart at the seams and rip our guiding document to shreds. I will stand between them and our Constitution, defending your personal liberties and our Arizona way of life.
