He knows all about the challenges of owning a small business. He has experienced, firsthand, the hardships which undue government regulations, high taxes and employee health care can put on small business owners. He knows what it means to live on a budget and make a payroll.

RICK ALLEN is a Pro-Life Constitutional Conservative. He believes the Constitution, as written by our Founding Fathers, was given to the citizens of the United States as a blueprint on how the government should work and protect our liberty. He believes this wonderful blueprint has been shredded over many years. He will fight to bring this Country back to a respect for the principles it was founded upon, like self reliance and individual responsibility. He will fight to repeal Obamacare, fight for a balanced budget amendment and will vote to downsize the size of federal budget. He will also fight to restore limited government and fiscal responsibility in Washington, by standing for a strong dollar and sound money. Rick also believes in limiting federal spending by abolishing ineffective federal departments and agencies, auditing the Fed, and standing up to the corrupt Washington establishment elites who are leading our Country down the road to fiscal collapse and socialism.
RICK ALLEN is a candidate who will fight to protect your Constitutional rights and freedoms, which will include taking a strong stand on protecting your Second Amendment rights..
RICK ALLEN believes the federal government is bloated and out of control. With $16 trillion in national debt, and spending $1.5 trillion a year more than income, the federal government is on an unsustainable path. Jobs cannot be created when companies are struggling under undue regulations by a government that is broke. The federal government needs to return to solid fiscal responsibility and get the economy back on track so businesses can prosper and jobs can be created.
RICK ALLEN wants parents to have control of their children’s education and is a strong proponent of school choice. Georgia’s 2nd District is struggling under sub-standard schools and high school dropout rates are skyrocketing. School choice, through charter schools, private schools, home schooling and voucher programs would let parents take back control from the federal government in Washington, DC and give that control back to parents.
