Pastor and GOP candidate Ryan Binkley preaches austerity
A group of about 10 people gathered at Lincoln’s Pub to hear pastor, businessman and presidential hopeful Ryan Binkley give his pitch as to why he should be the Republican nominee.
Binkley, the president and CEO of Generational Equity and lead pastor of Create Church in Richardson, Texas, said he was called by God to run for president and preached a political message of unity.
“I want to connect with all Americans about, ‘what does it mean to be American?’” Binkley said. “What are we going to do, what kind of sacrifices are we going to make to get our country back on track?”
Binkley noted that the Republican party has struggled to get young voters in recent years and said that the party needs to change its messaging in order to appeal to them.
Like many of his fellow Republican candidates, Binkley highlighted the national debt as one of the issues he was most concerned by and said he wanted to balance the federal budget. He also emphasized the impact that healthcare costs have on the national budget, saying that he would work to reintroduce competition into the healthcare industry.
