Representative Trent Franks is a conservative, Reagan Republican currently serving his eighth term in the United States Congress. He has taken the lead among conservative members of Congress with strategic efforts to reduce national security vulnerabilities in our electric energy grids and to increase America’s missile defense capability against all enemy missile threats including those potentially launched by jihadists seeking to bring nuclear terrorism to America. Trent believes it is the primary responsibility of our federal government to provide for our nation’s common defense.
Even before coming to Congress Trent worked on children’s issues, trying to build a better future for all children. In Arizona he was the prime sponsor of nationally recognized bills designed to protect children and the family which led to Arizona having some of the strongest child protection laws in the nation at the time.
Representative Franks believes that people and principles should be at the center of political discourse in America because the principal purpose of government is to protect the lives and Constitutional rights of its people. Trent works very hard in Congress for smaller government by cutting government waste, taxes, bureaucracy, and regulation. He believes in personal responsibility, strong national defense, free enterprise, protecting the innocent, and in the timeless truths and principles of the United States Constitution.
Five priority goals direct Trent Franks' efforts in Congress: Life, Faith, Family, Freedom, and the Constitution.
Life: Protect the Human Dignity and Constitutional right to life of all children born and unborn.
Faith: Protect and restore Religious Freedom for all members of the human family.
Family: Protect the right of all children to have a family and protect the right of parents to control the education and upbringing of their children.
Freedom: Protect America's National Security and protect all of humanity from Jihadist Terrorism.
Constitution: Protect the United States Constitution by reaffirming its timeless truths and principles in the hearts of Americans and influencing the appointment and confirmation of jurists who are committed to its original intent and purpose.
