Dale Kerns - The Issues

Career Politicians

Washington is a problem because we have career politicians that sell out to be re-elected. The politicians are bought by lobbyists and want to be re-elected, so they vote where the money leads  them. Let's put an end to the career politician by taking away political pensions and adding term limits. If they do not have the incentive to stick around, maybe they can get down to business and go back to the private sector.


We need to create a clear pathway to citizenship and legalization. We need strong borders to protect ourselves and our communities, and we need to cut off the entitlement incentives that bring people over the borders in droves. People should not be able to cross the border to receive free food, healthcare, and other benefits unless it is from charity. Let's really start to make a difference with real changes to our immigration policy rather than rhetoric.  

Monetary Policy

Our economy is a series of bubbles waiting to burst. We need to return to sound money that is backed by gold and silver, rather than a fiat currency where the money is printed in order to keep wealth in the hands of the bankers and politicians. Let's also allow for competing currencies and abolish the legal tender laws. Let's end the inflation tax, audit the Federal Reserve and expose this system;  and restore the purchasing power of the people. But it does not end there- we also must roll back regulations, stop taxing our people and businesses to death, and promote free enterprise. 

The War on Drugs

The war on drugs coupled with a failing criminal justice system has failed our communities. The heroin epidemic is a plague that is killing more people than automobile accidents. Washington does not work! We need to end mandatory minimums, end for profit prisons, and end the war on drugs. Addiction is not a crime, let's let doctors treat people instead of caging them up like animals. 

Abortion and Right to Choose

Dale shares the beliefs recognizing that abortion is a sensitive issue and that people can hold good faith beliefs on all sides. He believes that government should be kept out of the matter, leaving the question to each person for their conscientious consideration. As a Senator, he will fight to ensure that abortion is not a federal issue and will actively work to defund any business that receives government funding in any form.  

Freedom- Liberty

Why would you want to fight for someone else to control your life? Dale Kerns wants to fight for you to have control. 

Economy and Jobs

Government Cuts

down the drain, money, waste, taxes, funding

Government needs real cuts in wasteful spending. With a national debt that is over $19 Trillion we need to treat this as a priority instead of election rhetoric. A Balanced Budget Amendment is a step toward correction. The next step is removing career politicians that have one goal, re-election. I propose eliminating political pensions as a way to remove the entitlement system that keeps these career politicians in office; and in bed with lobbyists. 

Bring Back Free Enterprise

We allow crony capitalism and other lobbyist organizations to force their way on the market and on employees. We need to allow the free markets, free enterprise to make America what it once was. We became a great nation by allowing innovation, by entrepreneurial freedom taking us to new heights. We need to find this again. Taking minimum wages, prevailing wages, and government/ corporate relationships out of the market place will lead us to prosperity. 

ATR Pledge Signer

tax reform, freedom, money, responsible spending

In Washington DC the two old parties bail out  big business and do it with our hard earned money. It is time we end government handouts across the board. When you need Washington they are not there; but when their cronies need Washington- you are there! We must shrink government and allow the economy to grow. Dale Kerns has signed the pledge from Americans for Tax Reform and will oppose all tax increases. Freedom means choices, and freedom relies on less taxes!

The Second Amendment

All of Your Rights, All of The Time

 "I think the Constitution speaks for itself. Nowhere does it read, hunting, gun collection, or target shooting. It also doesn't read magazines of a certain size, having to leave your gun at home, or a restriction of any kind. I would appose any and all restrictions on the second amendment. "

Foreign Policy

Stop Policing The World

We cannot afford to be a global police force. We cannot afford it, it does not make us more safe, nor do we have the authority to tell people what to do. We put a target on our backs by intervening. Lets focus on keeping America safe. 

Strong National Defense

Our soldiers and veterans are taken advantage of in Washington. Politicians send them off to fight without a declaration of war, and without a plan of action to win. 

We need a common sense foreign policy, free from the United Nations. When we are forced to war, acting in self defense, our troops should have the decency of a plan to bring them home safely with a victory. 

Take Care of Our Troops

After returning home our troops must know they will be taken care of. Currently, our soldiers are left mentally unstable and homeless. We owe our protectors our support when they return home to their family. 

Addiction is Not A Crime

Grassroots Bill- End the war on drugs

Dale Kerns is dedicated to ending the war on drugs, by opening free markets to solve the addiction crisis in America. On March 12, 2017 Dale Kerns held a Town Hall to begin a grassroots bill drafted by people affected the most by the drug war. The "Addiction Is Not A Crime" Bill was born on that day in celebration of Dale's cousin Dan's birthday. Dan died from a fatal overdose in 2015. 

Economic Failure

The War on drugs has failed us in many ways. Spending more money on government programs has not worked. Government continues to expand programs to "stop drug use" despite the growing use and abuse trends. Dale Kerns believes in the free market and treating addiction as a healthcare issue. 

Heroin Overdose Deaths Rise

The amount of people dying is a direct result of the war on drugs coupled with neglecting the real problems addicts face. We need a commonsense approach to solving this problem, starting with the "Addiction is not a Crime" Bill.
