John Smith (Tennessee)
|U.S. House, Tennessee, District 5|
|Place of birth||Nashville, TN|
Smith’s website highlighted the following campaign themes:
The three most important issues I can see are the economy, debt and the assault on freedom from the inside of our republic from people sworn to protect our form of government.
1. On our economy, I will submit bills that will reverse all progressive policies that are against the growth of small business. Small businesses are the back bone of job growth in our economy.
2. Out of control Debt is a cancer to the economic health of our nation, it is not only a threat on our economic system but our national security. Debt is destroying the value of our currency. I will put forth legislation to cut spending on all levels of government.
3. The Assault on Freedom It is the job of the House of Representatives to stand up to an over reaching branch in the separation of powers of our republic. To many times this body has not used its constitutional authority to stop for example, judicial activism that is immoral or ACTIONS THROUGH ORDERS THAT ARE CONTRARY TO OUR CONSTITUTION by the executive branch. But what is dangerous, is when these people yield to foreign influence weakening our nation. I will fight this with every breath in my body once elected!
