3 Primary Issues
Our liberty is under assault in a myriad of ways like never before. We need to look no further than vaccine status discrimination and unconstitutional federal mandates. We must put a stop to Joe Biden and Raphael Warnock’s radical socialist agenda by defeating Warnock and taking back the Senate.
In times like this Josh is constantly reminded of Ronald Reagan’s warning, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”
Thanks to Biden and Warnock’s reckless and irresponsible spending, our debt is now approaching $30 trillion dollars. This is unsustainable and must stop NOW. As a father of six children, Josh will not sit idly by as we selfishly borrow and steal from future generations. It is our responsibility to leave this country better off than we found it. In the words of Warren Buffet, “If Congress can’t pass a balanced budget, they shouldn’t be able to run for re-election.”
In the Georgia State Legislature, Josh is proud of his record. He was able to cut wasteful spending, balance the budget, reduce the income tax and grow the economy. In the U.S. Senate, he will work hard to do the same. Growing up poor, he learned how to pinch a penny and prioritize between needs and wants.
We must stop Biden’s plan to raise the corporate taxes to 28%. This will destroy jobs by pushing more companies overseas in order to compete. Josh will fight to LOWER TAXES to encourage innovation, job creation and economic growth here in the United States. He is proud of his record in the Georgia State House where he cut taxes and helped pass a constitutional amendment to prevent the income tax from being raised in the future.
The current border crisis is putting our national security in grave danger. Open borders allow terrorists, sex traffickers, drug runners, and criminals to flood into our country. As a result, a record two million plus people have crossed the border since Biden took office. Sadly, the increase of opioids, much of which comes from China across the southern border, has resulted in the death of over 100,000 youth in the past year alone. It is imperative we protect our communities by finishing the border wall and properly equipping the U.S. Border Patrol.
Josh has a 100% Pro-Life voting record. His views were strongly influenced first by his mother and later by his faith and the Constitution. As a very young child, he asked her which party they supported and she replied, “Parties change but principles remain. We ALWAYS vote with the party that protects life.” As a legislator back in 2012, he helped champion and pass the Fetal Pain Bill which ended abortions after 20 weeks. That was a start, but he won’t rest until abortion is overturned.
It’s absolutely essential that we the people have complete confidence in our elections in order to maintain democracy. For this reason, I strongly support a full forensic audit of the past election. Democrats should appreciate Republican’s demand for secure elections. After all, Pelosi pitched a fit insisting the 2016 election was stolen. In 2018, Stacey Abrahams again claimed the election was stolen and never conceded. It’s sad to see the double standard played out in the media.
The passage of Georgia’s Election Integrity Act in 2021 was a step in the right direction by making it easier to vote and harder to cheat.
We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal and endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights. Our founders understood these rights come from God and enshrined them within the Constitution. My past voting record proves I will uphold and legislate according to the Constitution.
As a U.S. Senator, I will always adhere to the 10th amendment which states, “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.” We must stay in our clearly defined lane and stop passing down unfunded mandates to the states.
Josh is a strong supporter of the Second Amendment and firmly believes that the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed upon. As a former legislator, Josh earned an “A” rating from the National Rifle Association and will do everything in his power to protect this constitutional right.
Big Tech has grown into monopolies because of protections afforded to them by Congress under Section 230. They’ve used their unbridled powers to censor free speech from conservative voices they disagree with. We must protect our First Amendment rights, and as such I will work to hold Big Tech accountable to “We the People.”
Josh signed the Term Limit Pledge because he believes public service should be for a season and not a lifetime career. In keeping with this philosophy, he served two terms in the Georgia House of Representatives and returned to private life unopposed. Now, eight years later, he’s returning to duty because he and his family believe God is calling him to step up and serve once again in this critical time.
“Public servants should be just that: in service to their constituents, not their own pocketbooks,” Clark said in early February. “I take the role of elected office seriously, and I will not use the influence of office to my own profit. My wife Chelsey and I have sold all of our stock assets as of February 2nd. I pledge to the people of Georgia that I will not participate in stock trading or financially benefit from insider knowledge while serving in the U.S. Senate. Having the trust of voters is a solemn responsibility. We are given the consent of the governed to deliver results and stability for We the People, not deliver power and money to ourselves.”
On February 2, the Josh Clark for U.S. Senate campaign announced that Josh and Chelsey Clark had sold their stock assets. Both Republicans and Democrats in Congress have found themselves embroiled in ‘insider trading’ scandals, including a particularly shocking tens of millions in profits linked to Speaker Nancy Pelosi. While Congress debates, Josh Clark took personal action.
As the father of six children, Josh will always fight for the next generation. Due to Biden’s continual school lockdown, the most vulnerable among us were held back and suffered irreparable harm. If there is a silver lining, it’s that parents woke up to the liberal indoctrination of our children and made their voices heard. Shockingly, many parents were harassed, resulting in the need for a Parents Bill of Rights which Josh has committed to co-sponsoring when he goes to Washington.
Josh believes in allowing parents to pick the school that best fits their child’s needs. His family has made use of all the options including homeschool, public school, and Christian schools.
Critical race theory must never be taught in our schools. It is a divisive indoctrination that is offensive to Martin Luther King’s dream of his children being judged by their character and not by the color of their skin. Instead of working to build bridges that heal the wounds of the past and unite all communities, this harmful ideology divides and destroys.
Gas and energy prices are through the roof as a result of failed policies of Joe Biden & Raphael Warnock. Josh will fight to return America back to energy independence for the sake of national security and American jobs.
Maintaining a strong national defense and standing up for our greatest heroes should be our top priority. Josh is so proud to have 13 immediate family members, including four brothers on each side, who are either serving or have served in the military. Four brothers served on the front lines in Afghanistan. Biden’s massive failures have hurt military morale and weakened our position globally. He must be held accountable.
Josh believes that the vast majority of our country’s law enforcement professionals serve with the utmost integrity. While the radical left cries to defund the police, he will firmly back the blue so our police officers can stay safe while continuing to keep our communities safe.
We must always stand firm with our longtime friend and trusted ally in the Middle East. Josh is proud of President Trump’s bold decision to move the United States Embassy to Jerusalem. In the Senate, he will actively engage in building upon and strengthening our relationship with Israel, unlike Raphael Warnock who has repeatedly bashed Israel while praising Palestine.
