James Comer on Principles & Values

 

 


I believe that public servants should put God above all else

Q: Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

Comer: I am a God fearing, born again Christian. I believe that public servants should put God above all else. I believe that the US was founded by Christians with the belief that we are one nation under God. I do believe that our religious liberties are under attack from liberals in Washington and the left wing media trying to be "politically correct." I am a leader who will fight to restore our religious liberties, put prayer back into public education and government offices, and vote to protect and preserve Life and end federal funding of abortions.

Q: What in the nature of mankind caused America's Founders to carefully define, separate, and limit powers in the Constitution?

Comer: To prevent concentration of powers and to prevent any one branch from becoming too powerful. That is why there are checks and balances in the Constitution.

I am a social conservative

Q: Considering all issues (social, economic, national security, etc.), which political philosophy best describes you?

Comer: Very Conservative

Q: Please defend your answer to the previous question by referencing your publicly available track record.

Comer: I have a public record which shows that I am a social conservative. I co-sponsored the KY Legislation which amended the KY Constitution to define marriage as only between one man and one woman, and I always voted pro-Life 100% of the time as a six term KY State Legislator. As Commissioner of Agriculture, I significantly downsized my number of employees and always returned money back to the taxpayers. I remain the only statewide officeholder in the history of KY to return an earmark back to the taxpayers. That earmark totaled $1,650,000!
