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.

What Does "Freedom" Mean?

Does freedom as we know it in the western world mean to be free from economic turn-downs, failing business deals, a stock market crash, terrorist attacks, defective automobiles, food gone bad, temporary periods of unemployment or shirts whose buttons fall off?


Freedom means to be "free" from the wiles and controls of government, which controls have been stacking up like logs since the Obama takeover of our government two years ago. And there's no end in sight to the regulations and controls being issued by the Obama administration that restrict our ability to run our own lives.

Freedom is exactly what the Obama administration is taking from us with his takeover of healthcare and General Motors, his cronyism with big business and general government control of every aspect of our lives via the EPA regulations on CO2 emissions, especially those of coal fired power plants. But the ultimate government intrusion into our lives is the tragic debt Obama has run up which threatens the future of our children and grandchildren as well as ourselves in the immediate future. And now our imperial leader has made an enraged speech to the nation stating that Republicans have not dealt honestly with him on the debt ceiling talks being held in Washington, while it's Obama who has run a government that has spent more money than anyone thought possible and achieved a level of debt we may never be able to pay off, and has not generated a constitutionally required national budget for the last 2 years because that would require admitting the tragic level of spending he is committed to. Obama is also the president who a few weeks ago proposed trillions of dollars in new spending, but is now scolding House Republicans, who have passed the Cut, Cap and Balance legislation, for not being serious about spending cuts and a responsible government. How can such a lying, deceitful individual be trusted to deal honestly and seriously with the Republicans on such a critical issue as faces this nation in the immediate future?

Freedom is truly being stripped from the lives of Americans and we are witnessing the act in real time. We must stop our immoral president from accumulating more power and additional control over our lives or we are doomed as a free and prosperous nation.
