Announcing My Run for U.S. Senate

Josh Gapp for U.S. Senate

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

Declaration of Independence. July 4, 1776.

Cancer will kill nearly 10 million people this year. I know, because I'm Dr. Josh Gapp, a pathologist trained to identify cancer cells.

Based on my upbringing and my training, I can tell you that political correctness has become a cancer on our political system.

Radical liberal activists disrespect our flag. They disrespect our country. They want to deny us our God-given unalienable rights to ”Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.”

And, this radical, politically correct crowd is aided and abetted by the career politicians and privileged, elite insiders who cower before them and cave into their liberal demands.

They threaten our country, our liberty, our way of life.

Taking a Stand

You know, in the office they call me "Doctor Gapp," but I'm not just a doctor -- I'm Josh! I'm a devoted husband of 22 years, a busy dad with four kids, a lifelong entrepreneur and a proud patriot.

I'm announcing my run for the U.S. Senate in Tennessee, because I volunteer to be your champion for liberty.

To the radical, liberal activists who seek to run down our country and erase our history, I say not on my watch.

To the self-proclaimed Socialists, who try to blackmail American businesses in pursuit of their extreme agendas, I say Tennessee will take those jobs.

To the politicians who cower before the politically correct crowd and pledge taxpayer funded health care to every illegal alien in our country, I say you will rue the day you tried to "Tread on Us," the hard working, tax paying Americans who are the backbone of this great nation.

Will You Stand With Me?

To my fellow Tennesseans, as a pathologist trained to spot cancer, I say political correctness is the greatest threat to our liberty today, but I will fight day in, day out in the U.S. Senate to defend our liberty and protect our freedoms against the cancer of political correctness.

So today I ask, will you stand with me?

Stand for Liberty

Liberty is a God-given unalienable right. Liberty does not defend itself. We must take a stand and actively protect it against those who would silence our speech, censor dissent and actively encroach on our Constitutional rights.

Fight Political Correctness

Political correctness has become the Orwellian method of silencing conservative voices. Radical liberals cannot compete in a free marketplace of ideas, and we must fight the politically correct crowd to preserve our liberty.

Fix our Broken Health Care

As a physician who also owns his own practice, I understand that the most important thing in health care is caring for patients. Under Obamacare, we have shifted the focus towards insurance companies, and I will fight to put the "care" back in health care.
