Nathan Dahm is a Republican running for the Senate District 33 seat in Oklahoma. The run-off in this election is August 28, 2012. About Nathan: Nathan spent his childhood years in Broken Arrow while his parents attended Bible school. In 1994, the Dahm family moved to the Eastern European nation of Romania as missionaries to the former communist nation. Upon graduating high school, Nathan returned to Romania to serve as a missionary.

During that time he actively served in each department of his local church and designed the 65-acre Bible school campus being built a few miles outside Romania’s capital city, Bucharest, while serving as the general manager. In 2003, Nathan stayed on as general manager and added the position of Dean of Students for the Bible school’s charter class, serving as dean for four years until returning to Broken Arrow.

Upon returning home to Oklahoma, Nathan quickly noticed the changes facing America and the many challenges lying ahead. He became actively involved in the Tulsa County Republican Party (www.tulsagop.org) and has served on the Executive Committee, as a precinct chair and as a current vice-chair, as the president of the Tulsa Area Republican Assembly (www.taragopwing.com)

Nathan currently manages the daily operations of their family-owned cleaning company, as well as being self-employed with an app development company; and has worked in the past as an engineering technician for a local municipality, and as a producer for a local production company.

As a Constitutional Conservative, Nathan draws heavily from his experiences in the formerly communist- and currently socialist- nation of Romania to inform people of the failures, perils, and evils of socialism. His desire is to serve the people, whether it is the impoverished people in Romania, or the Oklahomans of the 33rd Senate District.

 The Three TRUE Branchesof American Government
ne of my favorite things to do when giving aspeech is to first ask the crowd to name thethree branches of American government.Inevitably several people begin to list off the Executivebranch and the Legislative branch; and if they considerthemselves highly informed citizens, they also can listthe Judicial branch. This however is the wrong answer.How could this be? From a very young age we are taughtin school about the balance of powers and the threebranches of government. The problem with this answerof Executive, Legislative, and Judicial is that those arethe three branches of the federal government. And inmost cases this answer is even correct for listing thethree branches of our individual state governments. Yet the three branches of American government arenone other than these: the federal government, the stategovernments, and We the People. You see it is We thePeople that created the States. It is We the People thatallowed the States to create our federal government. And it is We the People that demanded a Bill of Rightsincluding the Tenth Amendment in order to adopt theConstitution creating our federal government.Our system of government is formed on the foundationof checks and balances. Unfortunately we have beentaught and grown accustom to believing that only thebranches of the federal government need to bebalanced amongst themselves. There has been quite a bit of excitement within thegrassroots for a return to the Tenth Amendment andStates rights as it is commonly called. The truth is thatStates have no rights, just as the federal government hasno rights. We as individuals have certain God-given,Constitutionally-protected rights. It is clearly stated inthe U.S. Constitution that the federal government andeven the States have certain powers, however the rightsremain with We the People. We have the RIGHT to keep and bear arms. We havethe RIGHT to freedom of speech. We have the RIGHTto petition our government for a redress of grievances. Whereas the federal government has the power to main-tain a Navy, coin money, and other listed powers; the Tenth Amendment clearly states that all other powersremain with the States or with the People. While I greatly value the Tenth Amendment and amboldly working to revive and restore it in my home stateof Oklahoma, I must admit that I am often disap-pointed at how many people seem to bypass the Ninth Amendment and solely jump to the Tenth. These twoamendments are intertwined and must be used togetherif we are to stop the ever-growing federal intrusion intoareas not expressly granted to our federal government. The Ninth Amendment is short and concise when itstates: “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certainrights, shall not be construed to deny or disparageothers retained by the people.” That’s right, theenumeration. The Founders are basically saying that justbecause they only listed (enumerated) certain rights,that can’t be construed to deny other rights.

People often ask me why I wantto be a politician. I am alwaysquick to respond that I have nodesire to be a politician and I, infact, despise politics. The truthis that politics permeates everyarea of life. There is politicsinvolved in the church, inschool, at work, in your family,with your friends, and in everyother area imaginable.My heart's desire is simply to serve other people. It's what I didfor years as a missionary, and what I've done for years sincereturning home to Oklahoma. There are plenty of other candi-dates looking to make a career for themselves in politics. I amnot. I am looking to make a life of service to God and to people-whether in the government realm, the Church realm, or wherever else the opportunity to serve is available. I look to Jesus as the prime example of giving one's life for others and I feel I can donothing less.I stand on my record of years of service to others, on the plans Ihave presented to help turn our state and our nation around, andon the character and principles I have learned by living a life of service. As Paul told Timothy: "be an example of the believers, inword, in conversation, in spirit, in faith, in purity." That is mygoal, it is my desire, and it is what I strive to do every day.It would be an honor to represent the people of Oklahoma in theState Senate as the senator for District 33. I ask for your prayers,for your support, and for your vote on Tuesday, June 26th. Thank you for the opportunity to represent and serve you.For the People, Nathan Dahm
