This is what Aaron has to say:

I decided to run for Congress because I’m tired. I’m tired of how things never change no matter who we vote in. I’m tired of the government wasting my money on things that are against my values. I’m tired of deficits. I’m tired of the expansion of the state and the erosion of civil liberties. I’m tired of big corporations getting bail outs and the average tax payer having to pick up the tab. When I looked at the field of candidates all I saw was more – more of the same. Red or Blue, we vote them in and they sell us out. I’m not them. I’m not Red or Blue. I’m you. I’m not an empty suit, I’m just a normal blue jeans and t-shirt kind of guy. But unlike them, I’ll stand for you. I’ll fight for you. I’ll fight for smaller government. I’ll fight for civil liberties. I’m for a balanced budget. I’ll refuse corporate and special interest money. I’ll vote for you because I believe you know best how to run your life. I’ll vote for the Constitution. I’ll vote for Liberty.

My Platform

Tariffs

Tariffs are universally bad, trade is not a zero-sum game, and the trade deficit is not a relevant economic statistic. I believe in a laissez-faire economy, therefore I believe that tariffs ultimately hurt the consumer in an attempt to protect certain sectors of the economy.

Marijuana Legalization

It is not the government's role to impose its own version of morality on its citizens. It is time to legalize marijuana across all 50 states.

Pro-Life

While the official Libertarian Party stance on abortion leaves the question to the individual person for their conscientious consideration, my personal opinion differs. Life begins at conception and it is the government's role to protect life!

Second Amendment

I support the individual's right to keep and bear arms. Humans have a right to self-defense. The Second Amendment does not grant this right, it recognizes it.

Government Spending

Congress controls the purse strings of the nation. Both parties have spent us into unsustainable debt. I pledge to be among the Top Savers in Congress.

Pro-Immigration Reform

Immigration should be viewed as an opportunity instead of a threat. We should modernize and streamline our immigration policy to allow those who can prove that they aren’t a security risk, health threat, or violent criminal to enter into the country to work. They should pay into our tax system without receiving the benefits citizens receive until after they’ve fulfilled a “vesting” requirement.

Limit Executive Power

Congress has allowed the Executive Branch to gain too much power. It’s time Congress takes some of that power back.
