"I don't have a political background, I have no degree in political science or any of these things. [But] that's not necessarily necessary; there's always a place to start and the time is now," said Jones during the March 22 edition of "Lawfare" on Brighteon.TV.
"I'm just a regular lady from Missouri, I grew up in a small town, I have no special qualifications. But at some point, you have to take a stand and say: 'I'm tired of seeing what's going on. I'm going to fight for my [children], my town, my community, my state and ultimately my country."
Jones is the business manager of Renz's law firm, Renz Law LLC, and has worked with Missouri-based chiropractor and another Brighteon.TV host Dr. Eric Nepute. She has also served as the vice president for wellness development at the Nepute Wellness Center in St. Louis. Both Renz and Nepute have expressed their support for her congressional run.
According to Jones, her platform focuses on three things – God, family and country. She supports the Second Amendment, medical freedom and fiscal responsibility. On the other hand, Jones opposes Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine and mask mandates, abortion and raising taxes.
She also mentioned the need for an overhaul of government assistance, which she plans to do when elected.
"I think that there needs to be checks and balances on all assistance. [It's] called assistance for a reason – assistance until you don't need it anymore. There needs to be bills passed that help people get back on their feet [and] help them with the things that they need, not just assist them in life forever. The whole reason I'm getting involved in this is because I do care so much about helping people … and I think that I can make a difference in a lot of areas."
Renz said: "I think one of the things that you see is [that] if you're willing to stand for something, then you're probably qualified. You don't have to be big [or] special, but you do have to stand [and] have the courage to stand for and behind what you stand for. I know Holly; [she] is not someone who is afraid to take a position. She's courageous where she stands on things."
Jones agreed. "You don't have to be anyone special [because] anyone can do anything that they want to do." She added that her run for the Missouri state legislature was a "God thing."
"I've never, in my life before, thought about running for anything political. [But] God gave me an opportunity and I did it. When God leads, you follow," Jones said.
"What we're seeing is terrible things happening, and if you feel it in your heart to be moved to do something, there's always a place to get started. You have to take that first step. We as Americans and citizens, even in our own communities, cannot sit back on our heels anymore and wait for someone to do the work [and] take care of us. Our politicians definitely aren't [doing that], so we're going to have to get involved – even if it's in a small way."
Interestingly, the "Lawfare" host also remarked that ordinary Americans can do extraordinary things when a previous guest joined his program. Back in November 2021, filmmaker Matt Thayer echoed the same sentiment when he sat down with Renz on the program's Nov. 30 episode.
"Matt's a unique guy because everybody always [asks] me: 'What can I do? I'm not a lawyer, I'm not a doctor.' Well, Matt's a filmmaker [and] an artist, and he's made an impact. He's got these awesome films and documentaries. I think he's a great example of what you can do with art. He took his talents and treasures that God gave him, and decided to do good with them," said Renz.
Thayer also echoed Jones' sentiment that Americans themselves should step up to the plate "to make [the] country better." (Related: Matt Thayer talks about Hollywood and creating patriot films with Tom Renz – Brighteon.TV.)
"We just can't expect our representatives or politicians to take care of us anymore without oversight. We need oversight, and we live in an extraordinary day and age where we can have that oversight," said the director of the "Reawakened" documentary series.
