Shawn T. Ponterio: 2020 Congressional Candidate
Virginia's 1st Congressional District
We are a Nation of Diversity for which we should be proud to be a part of. By enacting broad federal policies, the federal government violates the sovereignty of each state and assumes that we all think, act, and feel the same. I will fight to maintain the sovereignty of each of our great states while ensuring the people of this district are heard. I hold no political bias and will maintain a consistent stance in my views and political beliefs so long as I have the support of this district. Congressional representatives work for the people, not for the paychecks they receive. There is something considerably wrong with our system if politicians can become millionaires off of the tax-payer's money.
We, therefore, the Representatives of the United States of America, in General Congress, assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the name, and by authority of the good people of these colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as free and independent states, they have full power to levy war, conclude peace, contract alliances, establish commerce, and to do all other acts and things which independent states may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.
