Derrick Evans on the issues


Resources in this district provide a thriving coal, timber, and natural gas industries, but intrusive federal regulations have crippled these job-producing industries. I will work to responsibly remove cumbersome rules from these industries.


We must have strict immigration control. That starts with building the wall to ensure our nation’s security. I will introduce and support legislation to build a border wall, push back on blanket amnesty, deprive sanctuary cities of federal funding, and enforce strict employer verification requirements for their employees to end non-US citizen labor demand.


Our nation’s debt is a national security threat. Our inflation and debt spending are out of control. We must balance our budget, end the needless spending, and dramatically change the entitlement spending.


We must end our endless wars. As a congressman, I will introduce legislation to withdraw our troops from Iraq, Syria, and Afghanistan and push our Intelligence community to develop practical ways to combat terrorism without major troop deployments offensively. Our troops should not be used for regime change wars on foreign soil. Our failed nation-building wars have been going on for decades. These wars must end immediately.



Our nation must retain a modern and highly skilled military, poised to strike and deter our enemies around the world at a moment’s notice. I support modernizing our force to focus on our main threat, China. For the past two decades, we have focused on ground counter-terror and counter-insurgency operations. We must support a decisive pivot to fighting a modern nation in every warfare domain, especially cyber and information warfare.


I fully support the men and women of our law enforcement community. I will fight any efforts to defund the police. I will fight to use the tools of federal law enforcement to dismantle the Antifa and BLM terrorist organizations.


Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is a national security threat and is already at war with us. China is stealing US intellectual property, buying US farm land, and using slave labor to undercut global manufacturing. We must focus on balancing our budget to strengthen the US dollar, onshore our industries and prevent our China (and other countries) from purchasing our land. I strongly support President Trump’s tariffs, barring of Chinese technology, and cracking down on the CCP’s infiltration of US industry, think tanks, and universities.


Putting this nation first will always be my guiding principle when dealing with issues abroad. We are the leader of the free world because we are strong at home. I will empower the State Department to build and retain relationships with nations that share our values and advance our interests. I strongly support the historic accomplishments of the Abraham accords in the Middle East. We must strengthen our NATO alliance and ensure that NATO shoulders its share of the security burden and does not support Russia by purchasing Russian oil and gas. To fortify our key alliances, we must not lead our allies on foolish nation-building endeavors as we have done in Afghanistan for nearly twenty years. We should only ask that our allies go to war when it is absolutely necessary.


I am a pro-life Christian. I will work tirelessly to protect the rights of unborn children. I will work to cut off federal funding for abortion providers such as Planned Parenthood, and I will work to codify Pro-Life laws at the federal level. 



We need to get the federal government out of our schools and return curriculum development to the states. I will work to prevent Planned Parenthood, The 1619 Project, and Critical Race Theory from entering the curriculum of our schools.


The social media technocrats are monopolies and must be broken up. The internet and access to social media is a modern public utility. I am a free speech advocate; free speech is a sacred right in this nation that no one can take from us. Our technology and social media companies have crossed the line by depriving people of their ability to express themselves and operate in our society. Social media have repeatedly acted on behalf of the far left. Myself and many other conservatives have been censored or even banned from social media sites, most notably was President Trump being banned. Another example is the Hunter Biden laptop / NY Post issue just before the 2020 election as an example of big tech that has gone off the rails.  We need to examine how big tech impedes Americans’ rights and remove big tech’s ability to act like a nation-state. 


I support the 2nd Amendment as it is written. Shall not be infringed. I will push for Constitutional Carry/concealed carry permit reciprocity in all 50 states, so all citizens can exercise their right to bear arms and defend themselves without government interference.

The government overtaxes hard-working Americans and appears to feel little obligation to account for the money it demands. I will work to lower our individual and corporate federal income taxes and go after government excess in every aspect of the federal government. I will vote no on any proposal that raises the taxes on American citizens. 


Government involvement in health care has driven the cost up. We should deregulate health care, allow for more competition in the market, make medical expenses tax-deductible and allow individuals to purchase insurance across state lines. We also need to remove the high-deductible insurance policy requirement to access Health Savings Accounts.


I support Health Freedom 100%. We must repeal the 1980 Bayh-Dole Act and the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act. We need to end the one size fits all “”vaccine schedule” and force big pharma to pay reparations to the vaccine-injured. We must prevent the government from using “public health” to seize emergency powers and provide constitutional protections for medical autonomy. Last, but definitely not least, we must defund the WHO, WEF, FDA, CDC, NIH, etc.


I will fight to make a federal cap on the cost of high-demand prescription drugs such as insulin to protect our citizens from the big pharma’s predatory practices.


We must put an end to career politicians. Our founders fought against the ruling class and monarchy to create a government of the people by the people. We need more regular government officials who go to DC to serve their people and return to the communities that elected them. I will push to have Congressional and Senate term limits mirror the limits placed on the President.


Energy Independence is non-negotiable and is a matter of national security. I will pursue an all-of-the-above strategy that utilizes our coal, natural gas, and oil reserves. We still have hundreds of years of energy reserves, and we need to use them to continue Making America Great Again.


I don’t mince words. The 2020 election was stolen. We must clean up our elections by putting an end to the ballot harvesting and machine manipulation. I will work with experts such as Mike Lindell, and True The Vote (2,000 Mules) to fight for election integrity across the country. We need free and fair elections where only LEGAL ballots are counted.


My unfortunate situation of going to prison gives me a unique perspective unlike most members of Congress. I have been through the system from beginning to end. Our system is broken, and I want to help fix it.


We must fully audit and possibly end the privately owned Federal Reserve. 


We must work to protect the social security benefits that our senior citizens were forced to pay and now depend on. I will also propose and support legislation to end the federal tax on Social Security Income which will put more money in the pockets of our senior citizens living on a fixed income.
