Zane Lawhorn on Principles & Values

Republican Senate Challenger


We're seeping into era of chaos, as foretold in the Bible

Even with the onslaught of terrible daily news reports--from mass killings to natural disasters, to government shutdowns--there are some who deny that the world is becoming increasingly chaotic, says Zane Lawhorn. "You'll hear people rationalizing what's going on in the world as 'not all that different' from earlier times. The claim is that 24-hour global news programs magnify bad news in a way that's unprecedented. But I tend to view the bad news as just that--bad news," says Lawhorn.

"Our leaders can't work together; the government seems always on the verge of shut down--or is shut down; spending is out of control; socialist tariffs dictate what's to be our health-care system; maniacs with deadly weapons target public places on what seems to be a regular basis--and that's just what's going on within our borders. We're seeping into an era of chaos, just as foretold in the Bible." Now is the time for individuals and families to prepare for deepening chaos, he says.

A mud turtle to Sen. Byrd’s junkyard dog

Position Statement: Senator Byrd compares himself to a junkyard dog. So I shall compare myself to a snapping mud turtle.

Description of Position: Mud turtles as the tale goes will bite something and not let go until the sun goes down. Or until it thunders. Depending on the local version. I do not give up. I am just like a mud turtle, when I start something I do not let go. And now, I have ahold of a junkyard dogs hind leg and I do not intend to let go.

Faith gives me the strength to keep going

I support faith in our communities. While I am not looking to convert people to my faith. I believe faith in God provides a better environment for our children to grow. Children who are raised in homes where faith is present are less likely to try drugs, alcohol and pre-marital sex. Faith gives me the strength to keep going because I know this is what God has called me to do with my life.

I support One Nation under God

I support One Nation under God. Of the 55 men who signed the Declaration of Independence, 52 were in some way religious men. The Declaration was based on about 22 biblical principles that the men felt were being abused. The very foundation of this nation is based upon God. And I do not think we should turn our back on the very God that made America the greatest nation on earth. This IS One Nation under God. If you don’t like it, then there are plenty of nations without God where you can live! Even with the onslaught of terrible daily news reports--from mass killings to natural disasters, to government shutdowns--there are some who deny that the world is becoming increasingly chaotic, says Zane Lawhorn. "You'll hear people rationalizing what's going on in the world as 'not all that different' from earlier times.
