Reining In Federal Spending
Keeping Families Safe
As a conservative voice in Illinois, Mike Koolidge has been to the U.S./Mexico border. He’s spoken with border agents and understands the urgency with which we must address illegal immigrants pouring into our country, making a mockery of our immigration laws. While Democrats are busy working on their multi-trillion dollar infrastructure bill, they have done nothing to help finish the wall and provide further security at the border where we need it most. We must send more National Guard troops to our border, finish the wall, and enforce our immigration laws because safety is the top priority for our Illinois families. Similarly, Mike also backs our men and women in blue and will fight to keep them fully funded and resourced so they can continue protecting our neighborhoods.
Congress has a duty to the American people to hold free and fair elections. There are very few companies and authorities who hold the keys to keeping our election process safe and secure. Mike will push for more transparency for our voting machines and the vendors who make and regulate them. Our machines should be American-made and fully certified according to the highest standards. Every vote should be auditable and completely safeguarded from malevolent hackers.
Ending The Culture Wars
The political grandstanding and the virtue signaling have reached new heights with the rise of culture wars pushed largely by liberal career politicians with a divisive agenda. It’s now its made way into our classrooms and workplaces. Respect for someone’s background and being kind to others are important values for our children to learn and for adults to embody, but that’s not what this narrative is. The current narrative divides us into categories – people with privilege and people who are victims. That is not the America that Mike fought for. Mike will end the political sparring and get down to what really matters – our rights under the Constitution, the duty of government to uphold those rights, and UNITY among all Americans.
