Congressman Warren Davidson

Representing the 8th Congressional District of Ohio

Protecting the Constitution

I took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution when I enlisted in the Army and again when I was sworn into Congress. I take this oath very seriously.  I am concerned with recent infringements on the Constitution, especially the First, Second, and Fourth Amendments. And the Constitution is more than just the Bill of Rights -- it also lays out the enumerated powers of the federal government, and particularly Article I, Section 8, which lays out the powers of Congress. Too often Congress passes laws that go well beyond the authorities listed in the Constitution. Finally, the Constitution lays all legislative powers in the Congress, yet too often the president has violated this fundamental concept though lawless, unilateral executive actions. That must end. 

America is exceptional in that it is the only nation founded on principles, not a territorial or ethnic identity. So long as we stand by the principles enshrined in our Constitution, we will continue to thrive as a nation.

I will not vote for any law that is not constitutionally justified. Protecting the Constitution is not something that can be just left to the Supreme Court to decide. Every branch of government has an equal responsibility to uphold the Constitution. If the Supreme Court or president ever veer off this course, it is the job of Congress to counterbalance them.

January 21, 2017 Press Release
“I am anxious to restore the Article I powers our Constitution places in Congress. We pass the laws, and the Executive Branch executes them. Former President Obama took a bad trend to new levels, boasting of governing by cell phone and pen. President Trump is using executive authority to restore that balance and end that era of bad policy and bad precedent.
January 20, 2017 Press Release
“Even though I disagreed with Former President Barack Obama almost every step of the way, as a nation we thank him for his service. “Today is a new day in America as we come together to witness one of the feats of democracy, the peaceful transfer power to a new president. I am encouraged by President Trump’s inauguration address, especially his message of transferring power from Washington back to where it belongs: with the people. With our unified Republican government, we have much work ahead of us to make America great again. My hope is that while looking forward, we do not forget to look back to the principles enshrined in our Constitution that have always made America great.”
