I'm a true Trump Republican... a Republican that believes in promises made, promises kept and a Republican that DOESN'T take marching orders from the Chamber of Commerce.
I won't be talking a good game, then promptly falling in line like a good little girl with the established elite. I'll attack the issues head on and won't stop because the issues are "uncomfortable". I won't cave to special interest groups and corporations because I believe that PEOPLE are what matters.
Just some quick facts:
The incumbent in the SC House District 81 race, Bart Blackwell, got 72% of his donations from corporations and special interest groups. Let that sink in for a minute...
72% of Bart Blackwell's donations come from lobbyists and businesses.
In 6 YEARS, Bart Blackwell received $22,147 in donations from people.
In 4 MONTHS, I've received $16,380... 100% from individuals.
No PACS, no special interest groups, no corporations... just people donating to me because they believe in my message.
From a supporter... "South Carolinians deserve better than Blackwell. Betsy represents a 180 degree turn from corporate controlled to citizen-owned state government."
I believe in promises made, promises kept. Promises made to people...
I promise to put the needs of the people of SC above all else.
God made me a bit of a bulldog... stubborn, tough, fearless. I'm running because District 81 and the State of South Carolina need a true leader and deserve better than the leadership we currently have.
Better laws, better communication, better involvement with you, the voters, better protection for the people of South Carolina... not big business and the Chamber of Commerce.

Freedom of choice over the sovereignty of our bodies is a God-given right that NO government should ever infringe upon.
The freedom to make your own informed health choices be it a vaccine, to mask or not to mask, a natural health treatment, an off label treatment for Covid with cheap repurposed drugs, or no treatment at all should be a personal choice between patient and doctor, and not dictated by the State, Federal government, Big Pharma, the CDC, the FDA, DHEC, insurance companies, the school system or any employer in the State of South Carolina.
I pledge to promote legislation to protect our jobs, businesses, schools and places of worship from federal, state and employer mandates stemming from any declared pandemic.
We must make pre-emptive strikes through legislation against vaccine passports, trackers and quarantines of the healthy. We must draw a line in the sand and never give up our freedom and liberty at any cost.
Faith in our elections is the greatest power of a Republic. Without it, we are lost. One person...one vote.
I pledge to promote legislation to protect this most precious of our rights with mandatory voter ID and establishing stronger anti-corruption standards for our election officials.
Officials that consistently fail to pay their property taxes on time, declare bankruptcy and whose properties go in and out of foreclosure should not be in charge of our precious ballots. Nor should the Democrats be in control of our county election boards.
I pledge to push for standards of conduct for our election officials to protect against corruption and to improve election integrity.
We deserve a school system that teaches the values of God, family, freedom and opportunity that made America the greatest country in the world. Where people are judged on their character and not on the color of their skin.
Parents should be able to send their children to school secure in the knowledge that they will learn the skills necessary to be productive citizens armed with the principles of capitalism, freedom and liberty, and knowing the truthful and unbiased history of our country that has made this country the greatest, most envied country on the planet.
Parents should be assured that no child will be taught to believe that they are confused about their sexual identity and be pressured or encouraged to embrace a fluid sexual identity. The gender neutralizing of our easily influenced and manipulated children has got to stop.
I pledge to promote legislation to stop the spread of CRT and to teach our children that it's ok to just be a boy or a girl.
Watching the burning, looting, and destruction of our cities over the past 2 years in the name of "peaceful protests" has been one of the most frightening and demoralizing events that has happened in our recent history.
Democrats condoning this behavior and turning a blind eye while condemning the peaceful protests of conservatives shows just how precarious our way of life is.
The lack of punishment for the perpetrators of these horrific crimes and the defunding and criminalizing of the police cannot be tolerated in South Carolina.
I pledge to promote legislation that makes burning, looting and rioting a crime with a mandatory penalty of such magnitude that BLM, Antifa and any other hate-filled terrorist group will not dare set foot in South Carolina.
We have to send a message... Just go on by with your fabricated, destructive hate. We don't abide that here.
We're armed, we're fearless, we're looking forward, and South Carolinians take care of our own.
The goal of any society is to have productive, well educated citizens from all walks of life. School Choice and Education Savings Accounts are great tools to make that a reality.
Education Savings Accounts would greatly benefit lower income children with opportunities for private school education, therapies, transportation issues for disabled and special needs children and give parents the means to custom fit an educational experience to their child. It would open the door to education opportunities that are not being met in the public school sector. It takes the burden off of public schools and gives vulnerable students a chance for a better education and a better life.
I also wholeheartedly support School Choice and believe there is a place for it in the private sector through tax credits with some oversight, and will introduce legislation again to make this a reality. It's ridiculous that this hasn't been an integral part of our education system.
Keeping our citizens armed and able to defend themselves is the single most important method for keeping the government in check.
An armed citizenry is a safe citizenry.
I pledge to promote legislation to protect not just concealed hand guns, but ALL guns, ammunition and accessories and to declare South Carolina a 2nd Amendment Sanctuary State with Constitutional Carry. Our gun rights should never be infringed by any government entity.
Big Tech, Big Pharma, mainstream media and the Globalists have conspired with the Democrats to stifle, demoralize and erase conservative voices in this great country.
This cannot be tolerated. Legislation must be passed that stops these evil entities from stealing our rights and freedoms through propaganda, censorship and erasing conservative voices.
I pledge to find innovative ways to prevent Big Tech from stifling our voices on social media, the internet and the airways. Our opinions, ideas and protests without fear of reprisal are what our forefathers fought and died for. We will not bow down and be silent.
Our State Income tax is one of the highest in the nation and is a great deterrent to attracting business, employees and progress to our State. Contrary to the demand that businesses pay "their fair share", taxing businesses just increases their cost of goods sold and that cost is passed to the consumers. It's a convenient political cry, but is a huge "hidden" tax.
Corporate and state income tax stagnate growth in our state by increasing costs for businesses and deterring high, well qualified wage earners from moving here. We need to be able to attract businesses to South Carolina to provide good paying jobs and keep South Carolina competitive and growing.
While lowering taxes attracts business and creates wealth,
with a growing economy, we place a demand on housing.
Our system of taxing property based on value is forcing fixed income, elderly home owners out of their homes. It is a blatant disservice to the men and women that have supported this State their whole lives with their tax dollars. Fear of the elderly losing their homes in their retirement years through no fault of their own is just unconscionable and needs to be addressed.
I also strongly support giving our veterans a property tax break for risking their lives to defend our freedoms. Our veterans took a stand for us. We need to take a stand for them. This is a small thank you to our veterans for the many sacrifices they made for us.
Our children are our future for without them we are nothing. I pledge to protect the rights of the unborn, the newborn, and their parents.
I wholeheartedly support the courageous step our legislature has taken in passing the Heart Beat Bill and fully support any additional measures that need to be taken to protect the unborn for we cannot survive as a nation without protecting the most vulnerable among us.
The coming days are going to be rough and we need a stubborn, tough, no nonsense leader in the State House.
I need your support to protect us
in this socialist battle for the heart of this country and life as we know it. Because, mark my words... No shots have been fired, but we are at war.
Let's get me elected.
Voting serves all of us. Thank you for your commitment.
