Raymond Crews

Candidate for Louisiana House of Representatives District 8


Foundational Principles

I am a Christian conservative, in matters both social and fiscal. I believe in the right-to-life starting at conception. I support the 2nd amendment to the US Constitution. I believe in religious freedom. I believe our country was founded on Judeo-Christian principles and that the rights recognized in the Constitution are a result of that heritage. Being an American presupposes the recognition of those rights and the acknowledgement of the inherent dignity of each human being.
