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.

Liberals Would Make A Museum Piece Of The Constitution
Conservatives believe that exercising the Constitution is the only way to save it for future generations, and they believe liberty is best served by narrowly limited government kept within the confines of the Constitution's defined powers. To continue the analogy, conservatives, via use of the tenth amendment to the constitution, want to "save" those limitations by investing in them and growing them, not by ignoring them and letting them die on the vine.
From the food we eat, to the air we breathe, the healthcare we must buy from the government, the amount of water we flush in our toilets, the types of cars we drive, the types of fuel we buy for our cars, the sugar or salt content of our foods and drinks, the type of light bulbs we use in our homes, the CO2 we exhale and many other areas, the government is betraying us and our Constitution by controlling our every action, and lying to us and trying to frighten us about the critical danger of everything we buy and use, best seen in the laws and regulations they force on us that are unconstitutional and are of no business to the government, except as tools of controlling us.
In order to save the Constitution for future generations we must insist that the government use it daily and we must see to it that legislators and the president are bound and limited by it.
The world is literally destructing all around us with record unemployment, looming inflation and the bankruptcy of our largest states occurring in our own country; with European countries going broke; with north Africa and the Middle East going up in flames and Islamists on the cusp of controlling our energy supplies. And with all of these things threatening us, as if they weren't enough, we have the most immoral, evil and corrupt administration occupying the Oval Office that our nation has ever seen.
All of the above are reasons we must support the new Republicans in the House and Senate, even to the extent that the government is "shut down" when liberal Senators and Obama refuse to accept and approve a budget that is sensible and stops over-spending. And they are certain to reject such a budget proposal, because the Republicans are trying to rein in government excesses and control, and that is why the efforts of governors in New Jersey, Wisconsin and Ohio are so critical in trying to control spending. But they, too, are engaged in battle with the liberals' main source of power and money: the public sector unions. The future of our nation depends on conservatives winning these battles.
