Biography: I am running as a conservative Republican for Congress in the 2nd district of Virginia. I am a disabled veteran of the United States Air Force Special Operations community, with combat tours in Afghanistan and Iraq. I have been happily married to my high school sweetheart for 20 years. We have 2 sons. My wife and I own Sandbridge Tattoo, a successful small business in Virginia Beach. (Source – https://www.tommy4va.com/about)

 

Why you? I’m going to start out with some hard truths we all know but even Republican leaders often fail to see- our families, churches, businesses and individual selves are under the assault from the government. Government has shown it has no respect for the boundaries our Founding Fathers legally recognized.

Rather than protect us from big tech, big media, and corrupt academia, they have made us vulnerable. Those in charge of our institutions care more about critical theory than our spiritual and economic well-being. They have pushed aside any possible limits, including a simple Voter ID law.

Virginians know this better than anyone! Our state and federal government have partnered in overriding our freedoms. The man and woman trying to put bread on the table have been forgotten.

I see this every day as a business owner. Even before COVID, so many of our businesses were subject to awful regulations that stopped growth and local employment. Too many have had to close their doors forever and those still open are often reducing hours because no one wants to work.

As a veteran, it’s sad to see selfish politicians promote foreign-style tyranny on our own soil. Tyranny I swore to protect our country from. I believe our government was established by the people, for the people. It is time for the power to return back to us.

I’m running to restore the sense of integrity, community and citizenship we knew as soon as a decade ago. And beyond that, we must trim government back down to its root functions and destroy the Critical Theory that has driven its growth.

I’m running because Virginia deserves a bold, outspoken fighter, not another “business as usual” politician. In short, I’m running because the government needs more people like you. (Source – https://www.tommy4va.com/about)

What are your priorities?

CRITICAL THEORY – Critical Theory, Social Justice, radical leftism, the Cult of Woke. Whatever it’s called, it poisons people against each other. It convinces people they are oppressed when we are all blessed to live in what I believe to be the greatest country on earth. My plan to fight Critical Theory is simple-defund it wherever taxes are used to promote it.

2ND AMENDMENT – The 2nd Amendment is a God-given right and an essential key to public order. In 2020 the businesses and families who armed themselves kept what they had when the radical Left rioters came knocking. Rather than simply defend the Second Amendment, I will promote the Second Amendment and give whatever rights that have been lost back to the American people.

ELECTION SECURITY AND VOTER INTEGRITY – Americans deserve to be confident that people who hold office were elected fairly, freely, and in accordance with our Constitution. We don’t have this confidence anymore. Key states, including our Commonwealth, have gotten rid of Voter ID and lawful absentee voting methods. Our voting machines are designed by foreign countries and the votes themselves are routed through foreign servers. This is unacceptable. I will do everything in my power to ensure our elections are free, fair, and indisputably American.

BORDER SECURITY – No country has ever survived an unresolved border crisis. Decades of inconsistent and lax immigration policy have undermined our national security and very idea of citizenship. We should finish the wall, reform our immigration laws, and punish people who enter our country illegally. In short- uphold the laws we already have on the books. Additionally, I believe human trafficking is a cancer that has plagued our great nation for far too long. Most trafficking today involves children being forced across our southern border. Securing our borders is then a critical step in protecting women and children from being trafficked. It is our obligation to protect those most vulnerable amongst us.

PRO LIFE – I am totally opposed to abortion. Congress should defund it. States should have the authority to outlaw it altogether. I will support any judge who upholds this standard.

PRO MILITARY, PRO POLICE – I will stand with the people who served this country at home and abroad. We must give them the tools necessary to do the job and the support they need when their service ends.

GOVERNMENT OVERREACH – Government overreach is ruining family life, religious life, business activity, and community. We saw this during the COVID era- all the restrictions and economic devastation were the result of a government used to flexing power instead of respecting the lives, rights and liberties of its citizens. Americans and Virginians cannot let this happen again. (Source – https://www.tommy4va.com/about)
