I’d like to commend Kim Pearson, who is running for the Iowa House in House District 42 (Southeast Polk County and part of Southwest Jasper), to you.  Kim is a follower of Christ, homeschooling mom, wife of a VA doctor, member of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Des Moines, a Tea Partier, law school graduate, and a grassroots conservative activist.

She describes herself:

I am not part of the political establishment.  I am, however, a part of the great patriotic awakening that is happening across our State and Country.  I am a wife and mother who is passionate about God, family and our country.

She has lived in the district for two years having moved from West Des Moines.  She had no plans to run for office, but her experience participating for the Polk County GOP platform committee, frustration with having her views heard or represented by State Representative Geri Huser, and concern about the liberal fiscal and social polices coming from the Statehouse led her to throw her hat in the ring.

Representative Huser has been a “blue dog” Democrat on some labor issues, but is pro-abortion rights and demonstrated this last session that she is not committed to traditional marriage.

Kim however stands for small government, asserting Iowa’s right to say no to federal mandates, elimination of our state’s new debt under Governor Chet Culver, reducing our tax burden, the sanctity of human life, traditional marriage, parental choice in education, private sector job growth, Iowa’s Right to Work law, and the enforcement of immigration laws.

Check out Kim’s website, read where she stands on the issues, connect with her on Facebook, and follow her on Twitter (we need to encourage her to use it).  If you live in her district, she does have a primary opponent on June 8th so come out to put her in the position to unseat Representative Huser.

  1. Wow . . . Kim is a superb candidate!

    Shane – did you happen to notice this:

    Marriage

    “I believe God designed marriage to be the union between one man and one woman.
    I am outraged with the Iowa Supreme Court’s judicial activism and the legislature’s
    cowardice. The legislature makes the law and the courts express their opinions.

    While I support an Iowa Marriage Amendment, I would encourage the next
    Republican governor to not execute the so-called “Varnum gay marriage law.”
    John Haskins, from Veritas Institute, was correct when he stated that judges do
    not make law. We need principled leaders who understand: 1. that marriage was
    ordained by God as one man and one woman and; 2. who will uphold the
    Constitutional separation of powers.”

    Interesting . . . Kim certainly agrees with BVP, and not Roberts or Branstad, who have no intention of inserting the office of Governor into the marriage issue . . . only “wait for the legislature.”

    Go Kim!!!!!

      1. Wanting to stop an out of control, out of constitutional bounds judiciary is about as “core” as I can think of . . . and thankfully, more and more people are understanding this daily. Her opponent, Aaron Warner, is about as RINO as it comes . . . so this is a race to take notice of and contribute if possible.

      2. I don’t really know Aaron, Kim indicated that IFPC likes him so I don’t know how RINO he is. What concerns me is that he’s 21, was at an out-of-state college for the last four years, and has zero life experience.

      3. You and I agree that the Judiciary is out-of-control, we disagree on methodology and interpretation of Iowa’s Constitution on what a Governor can and can’t do.

      4. ” . . we disagree on methodology and interpretation of Iowa’s Constitution on what a Governor can and can’t do.”

        How can we disagree on the interpretation of Iowa’s Constitution when you have never presented one? Particularly one that is based on the actual words that are IN the Iowa Constitution?

        That you do or don’t really doesn’t matter to me, but I would request that you stop making comments that “the Iowa Constitution does or doesn’t allow this or that,” unless you are willing to demonstrate where such powers are delineated in the document . . . anything else is just hyperbole . . .

      5. “We all agree that constitutionally ultimately a state supreme court or the United States Supreme Court has the ability to strike down state or federal laws respectively. When the Iowa Supreme Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act, constitutionally they were within their purview to do so.”

        Nope, not everyone agrees with that at all, and no, they were not within their purview to do so. No where in the U.S. Constitution is such power granted to any court, nor is it so granted to the ISC in the Iowa Constitution.

        Knowing how much you like to rely on “Constitutional scholars,” I’ll provide a statement from one . . . and this one was LIVING when it was penned:

        “To consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions [is] a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy. Our judges are as honest as other men and not more so. They have with others the same passions for party, for power, and the privilege of their corps. Their maxim is boni judicis est ampliare jurisdictionem [good justice is broad jurisdiction], and their power the more dangerous as they are in office for life and not responsible, as the other functionaries are, to the elective control. The Constitution has erected no such single tribunal, knowing that to whatever hands confided, with the corruptions of time and party, its members would become despots. It has more wisely made all the departments co-equal and co-sovereign within themselves.” ~ Thomas Jefferson to William C. Jarvis, 1820. ME 15:277
