Luke believes in individual health freedom and will fight to end our governor's state of emergency as well audit the numbers. Luke will work to nullify mandates for vaccines, passports and testing as well as the coercion that has come with them in the workplace. Americans and Hoosiers alike should be free to choose whether or not a vaccine is right for them. It should not be forced upon them by the government or workplace, especially with it being a matter that could significantly effect their personal health.
Luke believes that Critical Race Theory (CRT) is race-hustling Marxist's ideology in a different package and should have no place in our classrooms, government, workplace or military. Luke will fight to ban the the tenants and doctrines of this "theory" from being taught in any level of our society.
Second Amendment / Article I Section 32
Without this recognized right, all other rights are essentially indefensible at the end of the day. Luke was a small arms repairer in the U.S. Army Reserves, obtained his gunsmith license while deployed to Afghanistan, and is a certified firearms instructor. Luke will unashamedly and unapologetically stand for and defend your right to keep and bear arms as your State Representative, to include the defense of Constitutional Carry, blocking red flag laws that violate due process, and any of the senseless gun policies that try to sneak their way through our Statehouse.
Our elections should be free and open as well as secure. Right now, there are serious questions and concerns about the integrity of our voting machines in Indiana. We are one of only nine states that use electronic voting machines right now, and some of these are liable to being hacked. Luke believes we need to go back to paper ballots and will fight for this, along with randomized County audits, and a secure and private means for you to see your vote counted in real time. In the meanwhile, to ensure our primary is legitimately done, Luke encourages everyone to vote in person on election day (May 3rd; not early and not absentee, if you can help it). You can rest assured that Luke will fight to make elections fair and open as well as secure, and strive for transparency on who handles our votes to ensure each valid vote is counted.
Protection of Life
Almighty God (see Indiana Constitution Article I, Section 1) is the Author and Creator of all life. God created all human beings in His image (see Genesis 1:26). Every human life is a gift from God! It is also an irrefutable scientific fact that human life begins at conception.
In addition, Indiana law correctly states that human life begins at conception: IC 16-34-2-1.1 (E). For these reasons, Luke is 100% pro-life and no-compromise on this issue. If you elect Luke as Representative, he will fight with every fiber of his being to abolish elective abortion (the intentional ending of an innocent human life) and protect our precious pre-born Hoosier children. Luke will assert our authority as a State given the Ninth Amendment, Tenth Amendment and the Declaration of Independence, which acknowledges that every human is endowed by their Creator with the inalienable right to life! If elected as State Representative, Luke will also joyfully co-author Representative Curt Nisly’s Protection of Life bill to protect all life beginning at conception; including advocating for the passing of it.
Elimination of Taxes & Un-Constitutional Fees
Luke believes that the greatest corruption is allowed when the government is allowed to control more and more of our hard-earned money and lavishly and recklessly spend it without true accountability. Luke will fight to control and shrink government by reducing taxes and ending un-Constitutional programs that sap our hard-earned freedom into the bellies of the blood-sucking parasites (or, politicians and their cronies) that crawl through the halls of our Statehouse. For instance, eliminating gun permits and passing Constitutional Carry could save gun owners an estimated $4.9 million per year!
Luke believes in religious freedom and the sacred rights of conscience. Luke believes that these rights do not end at our doorstep. Luke will wholeheartedly defend Article I, Sections 2 through 4, of our Indiana State Constitution in every level of our society: "All people shall be secured in the natural right to worship ALMIGHTY GOD, according to the dictates of their own consciences." | "No law shall, in any case whatever, control the free exercise and enjoyment of religious opinions, or interfere with the rights of conscience." | "No preference shall be given, by law, to any creed, religious society, or mode of worship; and no person shall be compelled to attend, erect, or support, any place of worship, or to maintain any ministry, against his consent."
