Candidate Office: US Congress District 2 -Utah
Cassie Easley is a strong believer in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. She is an Evangelical Christian. She has lived in rural Utah for 20 years. She’s the daughter of a retired Navy veteran. She has a great respect for our Military and knows first-hand what the families are going through while their loved ones are serving. She has lived in both large cities and rural Utah. Her political beliefs are based in the fundamental freedoms enumerated in the Constitution of the United States. It is our moral responsibility as citizens to shoulder the role of Constitutionally limited self-government. The constitution specifies the duties of the members of Congress in Article 1, section 8. That is the job description and anything other than that is beyond the powers delegated by the people to them. She is a person who is willing to stand up, represent the people of this district and bear the responsibility to take those duties seriously and to stay inside constitutional boundaries. Deciding which course of action to pursue is clearer when you have the primary goal of making decisions that are based on the foundational belief of protecting freedom. She is a strong proponent of the 2nd Amendment, without it there would be no way to protect the rest of the Bill of Rights. She is a certified Firearms Instructor for Concealed Carry and Home Defense. She is a member of Gun Owners of America (GOA), National Rifle Association (NRA), and United States Concealed Carry Association (USCCA). She is currently a student at Southern Utah University (SUU). She is a proponent of unintrusive, fiscally responsible, constitutionally limited government.
My platform is The US Constitution.

Answers to the forum registration questions
Question Principle 11
We believe that each state is sovereign in performing those functions reserved to it by the Constitution and it is destructive of our federal system and the right of self-government guaranteed under the Constitution for the Federal Government to regulate or control the States in performing their functions or to engage in performing such functions itself.
In your opinion has this principle been violated by our federal government?
What would help correct this violation?
What state functions are reserved to it through the Constitution?
Answer: Yes this principle has been violated. To correct this two things can be done. Congress must stop making laws outside of their delegated authority and the states must nullify the laws when they do. All state laws are reserved to the states as long as they are not in violation of the US Constitution. (Article VI & 10th Amendment)
Question Principle 9
We maintain that every person who enjoys the protection of his life, liberty, and property should bear his fair share of the cost of government in providing that protection; that the elementary principles of justice set forth in the Constitution demand that all taxes imposed be uniform throughout the nation and that any tax imposed on persons within our borders be at the same impartial rate.
Has this principle been violated?
In what way?
Do you think our current tax laws are justified and equal?
Answer: Yes, this principle has been violated. By taxing individuals (16th Amendment, which reinstituted slavery) and not proportionally by state. (Article 1, sec 2 & 8). The current tax laws are not justifiable nor are they equal and the 16th Amendment should be repealed
Question Principle 8
We are unalterably opposed to Socialism, either in whole or in part, and regard it as an unconstitutional usurpation of power and a denial of the right of private property for government to own or operate the means of producing and distributing goods and services in competition with private enterprise, or to regiment owners in the legitimate use of private property, especially through the use of public taxes.
What social programs do we have that indicate socialism in the United States of America?
What are some signs of socialism in today’s society?
What is the long-term effect of socialism on the people?
What steps can be taken to stop socialism in the United States?
Answer: Social programs like welfare are a clear indication of socialism. Signs of socialism today is the push for equity rather than equality under the law. The long term effect of socialism is loss of liberty, poverty and unbridled government. Repeal the 16th Amendment, make the government come to the states and bring back true capitalism.
Question National Monument to the Forefathers
The National Monument to the Forefathers is a towering representation of the founding values of our Republic and is said to be the worlds largest solid granite monument.
In your opinion, what is the greatest value that Americans can learn from this monument and why is it relevant today?
Answer: That the only way to have liberty in to have faith in God, live by his morals, temper justice with mercy and educate your children to carry it on.
