Clyde Harkins, Governor, American Constitution
Why Voters Should Select Harkins for Governor
My loyalty is first to Jesus Christ, then to the oath to the original, organic, uncorrupted, Colorado and U.S. Constitutions and after that to the People of Colorado. I understand that power and money are to be used to glorify God first and to help people second. I would hope and pray that my service would honor Him and the People of Colorado.
Property Rights--oppose [Editor's note: I take it that Harkins opposes the use of eminent domain for purposes of economic development. -- Ari Armstrong]
Smoking Ban Repeal--support by finding someone to sponsor repeal of the smoking ban who is in the Legislature
Smoking in Public Buildings--support
Civil Arms--I am against licensing of "rights" period
Corporate Welfare--I support the elimination of all corporate welfare.
Abortion: God clearly defines abortion as murder. God has stated very clearly that the shedding of innocent blood is an abomination. God assigned to civil government the authority to punnish evil as He has defined it. For virtually all of American history, states had laws that defined abortion as murder and therefore a crime that govermnent punnished.
Abortion also violates the "due process" clause of the 14th Amendment.
I would as Governor work to make abortion a crime.
Education: Government control of education is the source of tyranny over the minds and hearts of every American. I would work to return all education to the exclusive authority of parents which is where God assigned the responsibility.
Medicine: Health like education is an individual and family responsibility. Therefore, there would not be any question of a "single payer" or "universal care" proposals.
