Statement from the Candidate
In 2010 I ran an unsuccessful campaign for the United States Congress, but I'm still posting blogs that I believe express an opinion that most other people miss, and that I also believe can make America great again and cast off the yoke of liberal/progressive control that is currently in place.

The Continuing P.C. Controversy: Defending the Free Market
This time the subject will not be the imposition of government control via Political Correctness (the original P.C.), but rather government control (the "power and control" part) versus capitalistic, free market competition (the "profit and competition" aspect). We know that government by its nature assumes and accumulates power, gaining control and choking out everything in its path unless there us a self-check on that power (and the Obama administration is expanding their power and control at dizzying speed). We also know that every instance where government accumulates power, the population's liberties and prosperity disappear in direct proportion to the government's actions. We've already seen measurable diminution of our liberties under Obama, and there's plenty more the Obama-meister has in store for us.
The opposing option to government control is "profit and competition" offered by the free market, both of which words are distasteful to the socialists/progressives who occupy the executive branch of government. Profit can only come from making better products or offering better services and giving customers, who voluntarily purchase the offerings, more of what they want. And competition assures that there are varying implementations of products to choose from.
As to whether the government's or the private enterprise's way is better, there can be no debate. Would you rather live in a government housing project or a private home, built for profit in a suburban development? Would you rather have your children schooled in a failed urban (i.e., government controlled) school, or a private educational offering? Would you rather drive a privately designed automobile (a Mustang or a Cadillac) or a government imposed "green" car (the Chevy Volt, for example)? There is no debate possible that the free, competitive market serves everyone's needs and wants the best. And not by just a little bit, but by leaps and bounds.
So how can it be happening that our excellent healthcare system has been taken from us and a government offering forced on us in its place? It's part of the mentality of socialists/progressives that they know best what's good for us, and then use all the power and influence they have (and this influence is increasing rapidly) to concentrate yet more power unto themselves. What we need in positions of leadership are people who are dedicated to a continuity and expansion of freedom and strict limitation of powers based on our Constitution. We need people who are not in need of self-aggrandizement, but rather people who abide by the Constitution and assure that all others do as well.
The immoral fools in the executive branch are willfully destroying our lives, our nation and our economy and they must be stopped with our votes. We must elect people in November who are aware of the brewing disaster, and we must hold their feet to the fire so they don't backslide once they are in Washington. Obamacare must be defunded and repealed, and the EPA must be abolished so as to halt their attempts to tax everything which uses fuel (which is everything), impoverish our nation and cause shortages of common, currently plentiful products, as happened during the Carter years.
