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.

Attention Politicians: This Time Failure Will Be Punished

Americans are angry with the direction their country is being taken, and since they elect representatives to make decisions about that direction, if you as their representative are not successful in reversing the dangerous drift toward the precipice that we now face, they will punish you with a one-way ticket home at the end of your term. In the past no one (except other politicians) really tracked how politicians performed in their elected positions, but this time we know that the future of our nation, and our children's futures, are at stake, so you will be watched and evaluated carefully.

There is no reason why elected officials, with their celebrity status and relatively high pay, should be treated differently from the rest of us who work in less illustrious jobs. If we who are employed by corporations that must make a profit or go out of business, fail to do our job, we are dismissed. So if you fail to do your job, we will fire you when your term is up.

Aside from repealing Obamacare, keeping taxes low and preventing cap and trade legislation from being forced on us, we want the architects of our current economic disaster (the Obama Administration officials and the czars) all of whom have lied and plotted against the nation and its citizens, investigated, prosecuted and put in jail if found guilty of a crime. Use your subpoena powers liberally on these leftist rogues. And you can tell the U.N. that we won't pay any taxes to them related to the scam of man-made-global-warming, or whatever they're calling it presently; it's a hoax and a lie designed to make Al Gore and his buddies a few more million dollars richer. (Google the recent closing of the Chicago Carbon Exchange as proof we are winning this battle).

Then kindly inform your political associates that if we reduce the size and expense of government we can more easily grow the private economy and jobs without having to raise taxes. Simply by eliminating the worthless, counter-productive E.P.A., the dictatorial departments of Energy and Education and the I.R.S (and begin implementing the point-of-sale FAIR tax in its place) the nation will be able to save $1 Trillion each year, minimum. Then include the enormous savings that will result from repealing Obamacare (which savings will be every year, not just once) and our nation will bounce back to prosperity quickly.

The United States is in a position where our own government is doing more damage to our economy and liberties than any foreign enemy has done or could possibly do, and we need our elected officials to correct the imbalance and restore normalcy to this great nation. We're watching you and taking notes on your progress toward this end.

My daughter recently reminded me of a quote by Edmond Burke: "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing". Let's not allow the evil of Obamacare, and liberalism in general, to destroy this great nation. We must actively and legislatively fight them.
