Jeff On The Issues
“Any good Judge knows that their primary job is to apply the law and not make the law. Our Nation was designed to be a nation of laws, where people are treated equally under the law. It was not by mistake that the very first rights expressed and protected by the Constitution were religious freedom, freedom of speech, and freedom to protect oneself. Our Constitution was designed to protect people from the government and oppression. I believe in that Constitution and will support and uphold the Constitution of the United States of America.”
