Cunningham for Congress

The role of Government is to
promote the welfare of its OWN citizens!

“I grew up and still reside in California’s 52nd District, but with each passing day establishment politicians are destroying what we once had. I am committed to actually securing the border, prioritizing American students and workers over foreign competition, defending the Constitution, limiting development, and ending environmental damage from Mexico. Let’s restore our District and build a better America that is of, by, and for the Citizens.”

Secure the border & end illegal immigration

The sovereignty of any nation requires secure borders. The most essential purpose of government is to protect its citizens from foreign invasion and to provide for the common good of the people here legally. The United States does not currently have an immigration “system” in any true sense of the term, but rather a jumbled mess of arcane rules and regulations made via backroom deals that serve only the wealthy crony class, career politicians, and unelected special interests.

Renegotiate trade deals & limit foreign labor

The U.S. federal government cannot continue to spend more than it receives, and the recent levels of deficit spending are no longer acceptable because it endangers the future of our country and subsequent generations. In addition to returning to this fiscal responsibility, the U.S. economic system must be rebuilt upon a foundation of economic freedom, empowering its citizens to fully participate in the labor market while increasing real wages, lowering taxes, and ensuring the quality of life for its ordinary citizens.

Stop pollution from Mexico onto our beaches

The ecosystems and natural beauty of the 52 nd District are under attack by overcrowding, excessive development, and the government of Mexico’s lack of interest in stopping the flow of billions of gallons of toxins into San Diego. While it is understandable that many people outside of the U.S. want to come to San Diego, we simply do not have the space to let everyone move here; the arrival of too many people is eroding our quality of life and further strains our already limited natural resources.

Expand access to education for American citizens

The state of public education and our schools is indicative of our values as a society. The role of public education is to form moral character, develop critical thinking, and pursue truth. The California Master Plan for Higher Education of 1960 was developed to create a world class educational system in California for Californians. Read More

Reduce cost of living & improve quality of life

The 52nd District is one of the most desirable places to live in the world. There will always be strong demand for housing and services in the District. For many, the new California dream is to move to a state with no state personal income tax and a low cost of living. We are continually told the “housing crisis” is due to a lack of supply. Housing will never be affordable in San Diego as long as policymakers continue to permit unfettered population growth through immigration. Read More

Protect civil liberties & constitutional freedoms

Fidelity to the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and protecting our civil liberties is of paramount importance as they continue to be eroded by activist lawyers and judges, as well as anti-traditionalists. Freedom of religion is not freedom from religion. Our Judeo-Christian values and heritage which built this country are under assault and need to be protected. Freedom of speech in the public square needs to not only be defended, but returned to its former sacred status. Read More

Bring market reforms to healthcare & lower costs

Our health care system must be guided by the principles of individual choice and competition. Market forces reduce costs and improve outcomes. Monopolies are not good for consumers and government controlled health care will be no different. I will not support “Medicare for All” or any other program that forces citizens out of private insurance or any insurance program they prefer to keep. Read More

End unnecessary wars & contain Chinese expansion

National defense is supposed to be about protecting the safety, security, and collective interests of our citizens, not, entanglement in foreign affairs and conflicts that do not serve the vital interests of the United States. The national defense of the United States should never be outsourced to global governance bodies, nor should it ever fall under obligation to act (or not act) based on the edict of some foreign body. Furthermore, federal law takes precedence in matters of national security and is not superseded by international law, international courts, or The United Nations. The latter, which in many respects is obsolete, corrupt and in need of major reform, should never take primacy over the U.S. Read More

Empower the individual & bring back self-reliance

America was founded on the concept of hard work, over-coming obstacles, and taking responsibility for one’s own actions and results.  Over the last several decades, these values have been eroded via a constant assault by the body-politic who wage a continual campaign of identity politics in effort to pit one demographic against another, with the implied message that an individual’s struggles are always the fault of some other group.
