Ralph Norman speaking at a Memorial Day event in Tega Cay, South Carolina

Our Nation’s Issues

Every American wants great things for this county.  Where Republicans and Democrats disagree, however, is on the best ways to sustain what’s working well, while making progress on areas needing improvement.

Unfortunately, conservative viewpoints are routinely met with attacks from many directions: liberal politicians, the entertainment industry, social media, left-wing activists, and even many news organizations.  Those attacks are as relentless as they are misguided.

Below is a brief overview of Ralph’s position on various issues facing our Federal government, with additional details to be added in the coming weeks.  As you read though these, remember how important it is to have leaders who are firmly rooted in proven principles.  As a business owner, job creator, and someone who has served our community in both Columbia and Washington, Ralph has seen conservative principles benefit people from all walks of life.

Having that experience and wisdom in Washington is a great benefit for South Carolina and the 5th Congressional District.

Of course we can insist on an open, fair, and accessible internet. Yet we can accomplish that without hurting innovation or subjecting ISPs to harmful, outdated regulations.
