shepherded through the platform making process many of the fundamental
planks of conservative principles and values by selecting and appointing
strong conservative committee chairs and committeemen. Clearly, as
dedicated conservative Republicans, this is a platform that we can be proud

Issues" of today and you will understand why he is the leader we need in
ECONOMIC CONSERVATIVE – FOR LOWER TAXES, FEWER REGULATIONS, AND A STRONG
EMPHASIS ON BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT.
Clint Moore is a
dedicated economic conservative, and committed to tax relief and slowing the
growth of federal spending. He will work to cut fraud and waste in the
federal government, and fight to reduce burdensome federal regulations that
businesses. Clint strongly supports President Bush’s tax cuts, and will
work to ensure they become permanent. Currently, these tax cuts are
scheduled to expire in 2010.
SOCIAL CONSERVATIVE – PRO-LIFE, PRO-FAMILY.
Clint Moore is a dedicated
social conservative, and proud to be a Pro-Life American. Additionally, he
opposes taxpayer funding of abortion, strongly supports the new ban on
partial-birth abortion, and opposes governmental assistance in any way of
RU-486 (the abortion pill).
He also applauds the efforts of Alabama's Judge Roy Moore (no relation) to
protect the display of the 10 Commandments in public places, supports prayer
in our schools and at public events, and the use of the word "God" in the
pledge of allegiance, our currency, and our overall national life. He
definitely opposes the ordination of homosexuals as clergy, and any
recognition of homosexual marriages by church or government.
TO OUR NATION’S MILITARY, HOMELAND, BORDER, AND ENERGY SECURITY, AS WELL AS
TO OUR PRESIDENT AND OUR GLOBAL WAR ON TERRORISM.
Clint Moore supports the
President in the war against terrorism - 100%. He supports the President’s
requests for additional spending on military hardware, as well as pay and
benefits for the gallant men and women serving in the Armed Forces. Clint’s
late father was a World War II veteran that served in
covert military intelligence operations and taught Clint many lessons as to
the price of freedom, and what had to be done to protect it. Clint's father
also taught him the importance of standing resolutely with our Nation's
allies, especially fellow democracies like
Israel. Clint firmly believes that America must continue to help and support
Israel, as an essential ally and shining light of democracy, in the
supports toughening our border security to prevent further illegal
immigration, as well as stopping so-called "Sanctuary Policies" in police
departments across America that prohibit law enforcement officers from
enforcing immigration law
Clint understands better than any candidate, the significance and
importance of energy security to Texas and America.
Only through aggressive supply-oriented energy policy, can America achieve
its essential levels of National Energy Security. His knowledge and
expertise in this critical area, will be a great asset to the people of
Congressional District 2. Go to
read the many energy policy issue papers that were written by the Government
Affairs Committee of the American Association of Petroleum Geologists during
Clint's tenure as its Chairman. Clint initiated this policy paper program,
and provided guidance and stewardship throughout their preparation.
TO FASTER ECONOMIC GROWTH, MORE JOBS, MORE INFRASTRUCTURE, AND MORE
FINANCIAL SECURITY FOR ALL.
understands a strong economy means more jobs and a stronger Texas. He
will fight to create and protect our
and American jobs. Clint will fight to reduce burdensome federal
regulations that stifle Texas businesses and impact their ability to provide
good paying jobs. He’ll work hard to spur business development, in order to
increase the “velocity” of the money supply, and thereby create more
economic growth so that more of us can achieve our American Dream.

SOCIAL SECURITY, MEDICARE, AND 401K’S.
is in danger of being bankrupt around 2040 – so Congress needs to act. Our
number one priority should be to protect the benefits of current retirees,
and those that near retirees have earned and are entitled to, after a
lifetime of hard work. At the same time we need to strengthen our overall
Retirement system to ensure future generations have similar assurances, and
that a Social Security system is there for our children and our children’s
children. Clint Moore will support innovative ways to improve Social
Security, in order to insure its role as a part of everyone’s retirement. In
addition, a prescription drug benefit should be a high priority for
Congress. We need to make sure that this plan is not another big government
mandate without choices or flexibility. We need a voluntary program that
will give those who need prescription drug coverage the options they can
choose from, so that they will not have to choose between their medicine or
food on the table.
TO PROTECTING OUR 2ND AMENDMENT RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS.
supports individual rights to bear arms and will oppose any efforts to
restrict those rights. We have enough gun laws already, so we simply need to
enforce what is already on the books.
TO LOCAL CONTROL OF EDUCATION AND PROTECTING AGAINST UNFUNDED MANDATES, AS
WELL AS PROTECTING HOME SCHOOL RIGHTS.
Clint Moore believes the best
government is the government that is closest to the people, and that is
particularly true when it comes to education. Local control of education is
the bedrock of our education system. Unfunded federal mandates of the past
have created financial crises for our schools. This past year, the President
signed a much needed bi-partisan education reform. Clint will work to see
that this “local government knows best” approach is continued in subsequent

of Congressional District 2 deserve the best service from their
congressman's office. Clint Moore will have experienced and dedicated
people willing to exceed the expectations of the people of District 2, and
help cut through red tape and bureaucracy with Federal agencies.
TO ATTAINING A POSITION ON HOUSE ENERGY & COMMERCE COMMITTEE, WITH ITS
JURISDICTION OVER LEGISLATION DIRECTLY AFFECTING OUR DISTRICT ON COMMERCE,
ENERGY, TRADE, AIR QUALITY, ENVIRONMENT, HAZARDOUS MATERIALS, CONSUMER
PROTECTION, HEALTH, TELECOMMUNICATIONS & THE INTERNET.
Congressman Jack Fields left Congress in 1996, where he held the 3rd
highest ranking Republican position on the important House Energy and
Commerce Committee, the people of District 2 have not had the same level of
representation on Commerce & Energy issues, which so directly effect their
business and economic future. Clint Moore’s goal is to become a member
of this committee, and serve as a pro-active advocate for all the economic
and energy development issues that our country and our district needs. I
have the experience and knowledge to be extremely effective for our district
and our country, as a member of this critical committee.
TO SERVING THE GREAT CITIZENS OF DISTRICT #2 WITH MY ENERGY, DEDICATION, AND
LEADERSHIP, WITH HIGH INTEGRITY AND MORAL CHARACTER.
Clint Moore has
proven that he is a strong leader, is highly dedicated, and has the high
level of energy that one needs from their representative, to ensure that
District 2's conservative values and interests are represented in Congress.
¨ WELCOMING GOD IN OUR PUBLIC LIFE. OUR NATION WAS
FOUNDED BY CHRISTIAN LEADERS WHO WOULD BE DEVASTATED TODAY, SEEING THOSE WHO
DO NOT RESPECT OUR COUNTRY’S HISTORY, TRY TO DENY IT.
Clint Moore is committed
to bringing a respectful Christian family perspective to Congress.
Clint will work to welcome God back to our public-squares, public schools,
courtrooms, and our public life. As a dedicated Christian, this is not a new
issue for Clint. For him, this is a moral obligation to honor the
wisdom of our forefathers, and preserve, protect, and defend that heritage
for our future generations.
The pillars of faith, family, and freedom are what made this country great.
And that’s why he’s committed to bringing a strong Christian family
perspective to Congress.
