Bravo ! Jim Banks has done an excellent job in the House and will make a great, conservative Senator. Now we need to set our sights on dumping Uni-party RINO Todd Young…he has become a pathetic disappointment to Hoosiers.

This is a fantastic announcement. We need at 99 others in the US Senate like Jim Banks. Mr. Banks will do his duty. He will SECURE RIGHTS which is the very reason, according to Thomas Jefferson, for the existence of government. It’s actually a lot more than that but the story will have to wait for another day. He is more than likely to obey his oath of office. Ignoring their oath has produced $13-Trillion in Debt. Take a look at Article I, Section 8. Compare those limited powers to the vast and overwhelming leviathan our federal government has become. Our federal establishment is so large it is uncontrollable. Look at the FBI, DOJ AFT (sic), NEA, DOL, or even the Department of Transportation who’s callow and silly director is powerless to solve the cancelled flights and long line of ships waiting to dock and disgorge stuff People think they want’ and all the other alphabet agencies that seem to be out of control. That clown is more concerned about his paternity leave and flying on government jets for his own personal convenience. Perhaps he is afraid if he walked through the average airport concourse he would have to answer questions he has no clue about how to answer. They routinely break the laws of the land that The People through their elected representatives in Congress, like Jim Banks, agreed to. Yet the agencies break them and violate the civil rights of The People on a daily basis.

GO JIM BANKS!! Make the government smaller to make individual rights larger. My great grandchildren who are not even born yet have $thousands of debt.
