Your property rights
Even non-politician liberals believe stealing is wrong. A fundamental value of every person, unless they’ve lost their God-given conscience, is “do not steal.” Even children know what stealing is. Therefore, one’s personal property deserves the full respect of the government and individuals alike. Ownership, private property, and what belongs to you — matters. I stand in strong support of the pre-Constitutional right of private property and against anyone or any force that would infringe upon this sacred right, no matter whether the legislative, executive, or judicial branches of government, or the private sector, are playing the thief.
Your financial rights
You’ve heard these, haven’t you? “There are only two things certain in life: death and taxes”; “Taxes are a necessary evil.” But have you heard “The power to tax is the power to destroy”? It’s true that much-too-high taxes, fees, and assessments, along with a choke-hold of bureaucratic regulations, are raising prices, hurting family finances, killing jobs, closing businesses, hurting our economy, and causing hard-working people to leave California. To protect your purse or wallet, I will oppose all new taxes, fees, and assessments, as well as burdensome regulations, and will seek to lower or repeal these wherever possible.
Your right to own a gun
You know it, I know it, and our founding fathers knew it — freedom isn’t free. So they enshrined in the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution that “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” For the sake of defending the innocent, I stand steadfastly for the right of law-abiding citizens to bear arms to defend their person and their home from a deadly assault. It’s true that if guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns.
You don’t have to look very far to realize that the lost or shattered dreams of intact families – a married father, mother, and their children – are causing a lot of hurt. No matter how the tearing of our societal fabric shows itself, it’s tearing up people inside. This is alarming and very sad. Children – and especially boys – are being damaged by society’s throwaway families. It’s a big factor in crime and drug abuse among our young people. This is why I will do everything in my power to bind up the brokenhearted and restore respect for and protection of the natural family unit, for the sake of the next generation.
SB 277 was a bad bill made by terrible decisions from those who have no earthly business in determining your family decisions. It’s simply bad medicine. The government has no right to be making your medical decisions for you; or force you to do something that is against your moral, religious, or family beliefs. See more here.
Right to Life
When does human life begin? We know that we were all born; we all were conceived from “something” from our father and “something” from our mother; and we became a distinct, growing human being with our own personality, blood type, and even gender. On our first day of conception, 23 chromosomes from each parent joined to form every detail of our human development: sex, hair, eye color, height, skin tone, personality, emotional make-up, and other inherited characteristics. At 3 weeks, we had a beating heart. At 6 weeks, brainwaves. At 8 weeks, we had everything found in a fully developed adult, only miniaturized. At 9 weeks, we could feel pain. At 14 weeks, you and I received unique fingerprints. This miracle of conception and the 9 months of scheduled, steady growth of human beings in the womb is chronicled in ancient literature including the Bible and is scientifically evidenced by photographs and other data collected from babies in the womb. And our United States Declaration of Independence recognizes that each one of us is endowed by our Creator with the unalienable Right to Life (or we don’t have any rights at all). Everybody should be pro-life and value babies from conception onward. It’s a matter of loving our neighbor as ourselves. Because we were all in the womb once.
Other important issues and position statements of Samuel Anderson:
- Save our Delta and retain our water and fight for our water rights as a source of natural water. We also must increase our water storage and save water that is wasting away into the ocean when we can be collecting it and storing it for future use.
- Common sense legislation that will reverse the divestment of businesses in our state. Too many laws and regulations that have hampered businesses and caused businesses in the thousands to leave California. We are overburdened, overtaxed, and overloaded with crippling regulations and a bumbling bureaucracy. It’s time put an end to the unfriendly business environment that cripples our California economy.
- Out of control budget and overspending. We still have a long way to go to cut the spending; streamline the government jobs and agencies; and lower our taxes. Time to cut the credit cards up and have a balanced budget that makes sense.
- Jobs and retirement. Our workers are paying too much in worker’s compensation costs and are highly taxed. What does California need with so much money? This money belongs to the worker’s and they are the ones who deserve to have the money. My plan to have a California Retirement Pension Accounts for Californian’s is a plan that is safe and sound. It will be an additional retirement that will support California workers all over the state. Once you have reached your retirement age, you will have your Social Security and maybe a 401k and/or other pension. But that’s not all. You will have the CalRPA that has been collecting for all the years you have been working. This money belongs to you; not the State.
- Protection of our civil rights, freedom of speech, and our Second Amendment. You can’t ban one Constitutional right and leave the others alone. However, politicians must have respect for the office and remember that they are sworn to protect and defend the Constitution of the State of California and the Constitution of the United States of America.
- Public Safety. Our police need the proper equipment and technology to fight crime and gangs. I will ENSURE they have what they need in our district and fight for the entire state. Let’s connect the dots and ensure everyone has access to the vital information needed to win the battles against the criminals.
- Graffiti. We need to have EXTREMELY tough laws against those who defile our public and private properties with graffiti. Let’s make some tough laws that will make these vandals think more than twice before destroying property.
