Joe Earley is NOT a career politician.

Joe Earley is NOT part of an entrenched, legacy political family.

Joe Earley IS a native West Virginian and a distinguished veteran that served this great nation.

The Neo-Marxists and Socialist unrelenting attacks against our nation’s laws, their contempt for the American Way of Life, their purposeful dismantling of American Values, and their indoctrination of our children under the guise of public education has resulted in a weakened America. Unless we correct this course we are on by selecting and sending true conservatives, not establishment RINOs, to Congress, the attacks on our Republic will continue.

Joe Earley IS concerned, like a large majority of Americans,
that our constitutional republic is in jeopardy.

Not Your Average Joe

As a patriot and a veteran, I have stood in the gap as a firewall, defending freedom from tyranny and liberty from oppression. As the elected representative of the 2nd District of West Virginia, I will honor the legacy of past generations of Americans that sacrificed greatly to make America the great nation it is. Our country will stand, once again, as a beacon of Freedom and Individual Liberty. Together, we will stop the increasing levels of government bureaucracies aided by "woke" corporate henchmen. Together, we will support the current generation of soldiers and families that bear the ugly scars of endless wars – many of whom have made the ultimate sacrifice in selfless service to our country to preserve the American Way of Life.

Why Am I Running?

I cannot stand idly by, watching our founding principles and our American Way of Life be destroyed. Career politicians, entrenched political families, “woke” corporations, and special interest groups are leading the charge against America and systematically dismantling our Republic and infringing on our constitutionally guaranteed rights. I intend to meet this leftist effort head-on and affect change through principled leadership and effective representation of West Virginia’s 2nd Congressional District. This representation will align with the principles enshrined within the United States Constitution and shared by my fellow West Virginians.

Important Issues

The Capital Building

Term Limits For Congress

Joe Earley is not a career politician or a former lobbyist unlike his opponent. Joe is the only candidate to sign the Term Limits pledge, because he embraces the vision of our founding fathers of a citizen’s legislature. Nothing will change in Washington if we don’t end the stranglehold of career politicians who always put their power ahead of the people. As our next Congressman, Joe Earley will co-sponsor Rep. Ralph Norman’s term limits legislation.

Economic Prosperity NOT Inflation

West Virginia needs jobs! As our next Congressman, Joe Earley will fight for economic prosperity by rolling back taxes and regulations that are job killers. Moreover, he will fully support our energy industry that has been the lifeblood of our state. We can count on Joe to support small business, revive our economy, grow jobs, and reverse bad Biden policy.

Moreover, Joe knows how the printing of money by the federal government is causing inflation and jeopardizing the fiscal stability of our nation. He is the only candidate to oppose the bad debt ceiling plan that put our nation another $4 trillion in debt. Joe will fight for a balanced budget, stop earmarking of funds, end picking winners and losers by the federal government, and restore American energy independence.

Joe Earley believes that our schools must emphasize American History and teach the importance of the United States Constitution and our constitutional rights in the classroom.

Energy Independence

He will support funding building the wall, ending the catch and release program, funding ICE and so much more.

As a veteran, we can count on Joe to protect our nation provide for border security.

2nd Amendment

Second Amendment: This is the long pole in the tent regarding safeguarding our freedoms. As a life-long gun owner and 2nd Amendment practitioner, I stand firmly in protecting the Second Amendment and the right to self-defense, while also recognizing the importance of an armed citizenry for personal safety and deterrence. I advocate for National Reciprocity, ensuring law-abiding citizens can carry firearms across state lines without the weighted boot of government pressing on our God-given right to self-defense. Additionally, I believe in reevaluating the necessity and effectiveness of [abolishing] the ATF and am a staunch advocate for rescinding the 1934 National Firearms Act in its totality.

I stand firmly on these principles in support of the Second Amendment.

Defend the Second Amendment: As a strong advocate of individual freedoms, I believe in upholding and protecting the constitutional right of all Americans to bear arms, ensuring their ability to defend themselves, their loved ones, and their property.

Preserve Self-Defense Rights: It is crucial to safeguard the fundamental right of self-defense. I will fight against any attempts to infringe upon this right, ensuring that law-abiding citizens have the means to protect themselves and their families.

Oppose Gun Control Measures: I firmly stand against any legislation that seeks to restrict or limit law-abiding citizens' access to firearms. I will actively oppose any proposed gun control measures,
steadfastly defending the rights of armed Americans.

Support National Reciprocity: I will work tirelessly to establish concealed carry reciprocity across state lines, allowing law-abiding individuals to carry their firearms for self-defense purposes, regardless of the state they are in.

Promote Responsible Gun Ownership: Education and training are vital to responsible gun ownership. I will champion initiatives that promote firearm safety in the public education space, while encouraging all gun owners to acquire the necessary knowledge and skills to handle firearms safely and responsibly.

Stand Against Firearms Confiscation: I am staunchly opposed to any attempts to confiscate firearms from law-abiding citizens. I will vigorously oppose any such measures, fighting to preserve the rights of individuals to possess and use firearms for lawful purposes.

Protect American Gun Ownership Tradition: The right to bear arms is deeply rooted in our nation's history and traditions. I will honor this legacy by standing firm in my support for the Second Amendment, ensuring that future generations can enjoy the same freedoms and protections that have defined our great nation.
