ABOUT STEPHEN BROWN
I am a beneficiary of all the blessings and opportunities that our country has to offer. My parents, who raised my two sisters and me in a loving Christian home, are relatively healthy and still together after almost 60 years of marriage. As a result of their American Dream, opportunities were made available to me that were never presented to my parents. I am the first in my family to attend college. I was fortunate enough to earn scholarships to pay for most of my education. I am a graduate of the University of South Carolina School of Law. While in law school I was blessed to meet the love of my life, Debbie Casey, and we have been married now for 31, soon to be 32 years. We have three wonderful children who have made our lives complete, each of whom has now grown into a successful productive adult. Debbie and I could not be prouder of our family.
My parents raised me with a deep sense of honor and duty. My Dad served in the United States Air Force in the 1950s and 1960s. His father, before him, served as a police officer for the City of Charleston, South Carolina for 33 years. After graduating from college, I proudly wore the uniform of an officer in the United States Naval Reserve. I was honored to swear the oath to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic”. My military service to our country has long been completed, but that oath remains as serious and compelling to me today as when I first swore it as a young man.
Right, with Good Reason.
I am compelled to run because I believe that I can help make our country better and stronger for our children and grandchildren. Today we see extreme political polarization, fake news, constant protest, and an unraveling of our social order. One wonders, are we even willing to listen to one another anymore? Do we have the ability, or the political will, to effectively govern ourselves? We must attack the problems confronting our Nation; not each other. I have learned the hard way that not every Republican truly believes in individual liberty and limited government. I do, and my conservative record provides the proof! We need a strong, conservative voice of reason to represent us in Washington. I am fully prepared to be that conservative voice.
What makes any one candidate different, and better than the rest?
In my opinion it’s unwavering principles and sound judgment. We need leaders who will fight for their convictions, and our interests, rather than dodge the critical issues that must be addressed. As a resident of the Upstate for over 30 years, I’ve watched politicians hide behind party politics and cave to political pressure on important issues. I’ve watched as political gamesmanship was used to make important decisions, rather than personal conviction and sound reasoning. Here is where I stand on some of the major issues facing our country:
We see the reckless and out-of-control federal spending and resulting national debt. With a debt that has now passed 21 TRILLION DOLLARS, the interest alone is rivaling our annual investment in our military forces. With no political will evidenced by anyone, including our own Republican party and its Leadership, to gain control of this debt and modify the trajectory we are on as a Nation, difficult decisions lie ahead. We need a steady hand on the wheel to cut through the bureaucracy, fight for the constitutional principles of limited government, and stand firm on the God-given freedoms of individual liberty that have made our Nation great. I will be a vocal and irrepressible advocate for a strong United States of America, at home and abroad, which begins by putting our own fiscal house in order. This can and must be accomplished through solid reasoning and intelligent conversation, not political rhetoric.
We see blatant contempt for our laws, including the immigration laws of this country, such that we are considered intolerant when we oppose the granting of amnesty to immigrants who are in our country illegally, and claim entitlement to the full benefits of American citizenship, simply by having lived in this country, in violation of our laws, over many years. We need a representative in Congress with the courage, fortitude, and sensibility to lead on this issue and explain why we are, and must remain, a nation of laws, even in the face of political correctness, but with the wisdom to show compassion. I will be that strong conservative Voice of Reason.
I am a committed advocate of the right-to-life, as well the Constitution of the United States of America, particularly the 2nd Amendment, upon which all of our other rights depend. I believe that we must all respect the rule of law upon which this Nation was founded, and honor the duly adopted laws of this country, including the immigration laws. My track record on these matters is long and very clear. Those principles will not change and must not be compromised.
