Don Stenberg Announces Restore America Amendments to the U.S. Constitution
Don Stenberg, Nebraska State Treasurer and Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate, today announced his support for seven Restore America Amendments to the Constitution of the United States.
“As Nebraska's next United States Senator I intend to champion these seven Restore America Amendments to the Constitution of the United States.”
“These amendments, if passed by the Congress and ratified by the States, will not resolve every issue facing our nation, nor are they intended to. They will restrain federal spending, provided a check and balance on federal power, reduce federal regulation of businesses and individuals, limit the terms of Senators and members of Congress, prevent judicial lawmaking on the issue abortion, affirm the traditional definition of marriage, and enable our elected representatives to preserve, protect and defend the American flag.”
“Our country is going in the wrong direction. Our elected officials in Washington appear to be incapable of restraining federal spending. Congress repeatedly imposes unfunded mandates on states. Congress has turned much of the lawmaking function over to bureaucrats. Many members of Congress lose touch with the American people when they are in Washington too long. Court decisions have overturned a number of traditional values,” Stenberg said.
“Our founding fathers understood that big government threatens our freedom. They wrote a Constitution to limit the power of the federal government in order to protect our freedom. Today, new limits on the power of the federal government are needed to restore America and preserve freedom for future generations. That is the purpose of these Restore America Amendments,”
