Marriage is Not a Federal Issue

The states reserve all rights not delegated to the federal government.1 They never delegated to the federal government the authority to make, enforce or endorse any laws concerning marriage. If elected, I will do everything I can to abolish every unconstitutional federal program.

Issues regarding marriage are best handled by state and local governments.

Personally, I believe in marriage should be between a man and a woman as defined in Utah’s Constitution. I oppose all efforts from international, federal and other state governments to force Utah or Utah’s majority against their will. Whatever our personal position on marriage, together we must defend our state’s right to self government.

We are the descendants of millions of men and women who made a choice to unite and bear children. Given the opportunity to alter their decision would force us out of existence.

When nurturing children, fathers and mothers play natural, complimentary roles in traditional marriage. I am blessed to be married to a wonderful woman who has so faithfully dedicated her adult life to our seven children.

Let’s thank Congressman Jason Chaffetz for his six years of public service and release him so he can serve his country in another capacity. Vote Robert Stevens for Congress. Let me show you what I can do.
