William Olson for House District 51

Foundational Philosophy

“I’m not a politician. I don’t have a law degree. I earned my education in the Cold War frontiers of Germany and South Korea, as well as the battlefields of Kuwait, Iraq, and Afghanistan. Seeing that death and destruction – and the chaos and turmoil it brought America – was moving and saddening. I’m running to fight for American greatness, American peace, and American pride.

In this campaign, I won’t be resorting to personal attacks on my opponents. I follow Reagan’s 11th commandment, and won’t ‘speak ill of another Republican’. Win or lose, I believe in integrity.

My opponents and I may disagree on some things, or a lot of things. But here’s where I stand. I am a Christian conservative. You and I might come from different backgrounds, or live different lives. But I will always work hard to understand your needs and represent you with fairness and dignity.

My guide stones? The Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Holy Bible. Those texts remind us of where we came from. They detail the tyranny we faced, and overcame. They enumerate our God-given rights, and acknowledge that the role of government is to protect those rights. And they make us a moral people.
