Why I'm Running for Congress, By Dr. Greg Brannon

By Dr. Greg Brannon

I am running for Congress because like most North Carolinians, I have had enough of politicians and bureaucrats trampling on our liberties and betraying their constitutional oath. I have lived, practiced medicine, delivered babies, and raised my family in the Second District over the past 23 years. Overtime I have watched the federal government overstep its bounds, destroying lives and the American Dream. I believe it is time for America to experience a revolution of ideas, returning to the foundational principles, which built this great nation.

My wife Jody and I have been married for almost 30 years. We have seven children, six daughters and one son. Both Jody and myself believe our children will live in a less free America if we continue down the path we are currently on. I decided to run for Congress to restore the American Dream not only my seven children, but also for the more than 9,000 babies I have had the honor to deliver. I believe it is critical for us to take our message of freedom outside the party walls and bond on liberty.

My campaign is all about voting for something, not against someone. Voting for liberty and freedom, prosperity, the American Dream, and principle. Right now there is no shortage of Republicans in the House or the Senate. What we are lacking, however, is republicans with courage. I am tired of being lied to by the progressives in the Republican Party. That is why we the people need to vote not by party, but principle. I have spent years studying our founding documents and reading our Founder’s words and it is evident to me they wanted to create a government with one objective, the protection of the individual.

My political philosophy is simple and can be found in the second paragraph of our Declaration of Independence. “That to secure these rights (life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness), Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.” As individuals we are free. I believe society is at its best when the individual has the liberty to succeed or fail, associate or not associate. I believe by returning to our core foundational principle we will once again see our country in a sun rise, rather than a sun set. I will continue to stand for liberty because it is worth fighting to preserve.
