People Over Politics
How does this piece of legislation help Americans?
That’s where I always start.
Jobs & The Economy
American economic and military dominance is no longer guaranteed. Prosperity is a product of empowering people, not the Government. To move people up the economic ladder we need free markets not democratic socialism.
We have benefitted from the brain drain from every other country in the world. We need to benefit from the hard working drain as well, and we need immigration policy in place that puts strong disincentives from coming here illegally so we have a much more manageable immigration system.
We have income inequality because we have education inequality. We have to prepare our kids for jobs that don’t exist today.

The technological change we are going to see in the next 30 years is going to make the change we saw in the last 30 years look insignificant. We must be prepared to take advantage of technology before it takes advantage of us.
With an increasingly interconnected world we need to treat cyber as a domain just like air, land, sea, and space. We need a national cyber strategy to defend our systems from state and non-state actors.

America has become an exceptional nation not because of what we have taken but what we have given. We need a foreign policy that is embodied by a simple governing philosophy – our enemies should fear us, and our friends should love us.

Domestic policy plays a pivotal role in upholding the principles of limited government and individual liberty.
Sound domestic policies promote self-reliance, personal responsibility, and free-market competition, fostering an environment where citizens can thrive without excessive government intervention.

If the United States is going to maximize the advancement of our citizens while sustaining harmony with our planet, we have to stop listening to extreme environmentalists and climate deniers when it comes to energy policy and environmental issues.

New Family Values
I don’t care who you are or where you live. You want to be able to put food on your table, a roof over your family and to ensure the people you love are healthy and happy.
New Family values are about ensuring we increase access to health care while decreasing its cost, provide our seniors with quality care and compassion and treat our kids like they are our future.

There has been and continues to be a lack of leadership in Washington, D.C. Leaders should inspire not fearmonger. It’s simple. Don’t be a jerk, racist, misogynist or homophobe and work together to accomplish big things.

SOME OF MY FAVORITE BOOKS ON LEADERSHIP
It's unfortunate that too many people in the Republican Party are pushing Russian propaganda instead of discussing how we defend the free world.
We should expedite the delivery of the equipment and materials they require. We must provide robust support, particularly in response to attacks in Crimea.

Will has spent his life fighting for our country, and he will take those decades of experience with him as he fights for all us.
The choice we face
In this election, we have a choice. We can continue down the path of divisive politics and short-term thinking, or we can choose a new direction.
We can choose a future that is grounded in common sense, that prioritizes the needs of the American people, and that builds on our strengths as a nation.
Together, we can make this vision a reality.
Together, we can create an America that thrives on innovation, that provides opportunities for all, and that leads the world not just in power, but in principle.

Will got more legislation signed into law in three terms than most congressmen do in their entire career. He worked across the aisle, and prioritized good policy over politics.
