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 Punish Those Not Guilty And Call It Sharing
The crime I'm referring to is the bankruptcy of our nation with excessive spending and borrowing, and the people the libs want to punish are the wealthy and the entrepreneurs who not only didn't get us into this mess, but are the only ones who can get us out of it via their money and their ability to create jobs. And, of course, the remedy the liberals seek (taxing the rich) allows the real criminals who have weakened our nation, government in general and the liberals in particular, to go on committing more criminal spending and borrowing and further undermining the greatest nation on earth.
The only way to rectify the dire financial situation we're in is to allow the wealthy to keep their money and not be tempted to remove it to a safe haven in another country, and to continue to invest and create jobs in the U.S. And we must begin immediately to punish the ones who have over-spent and over-borrowed: we must begin de-growing government by reducing each and every position in government by 25 percent; every cabinet position, Obama's czars, every department, the IRS, the EPA, the president's salary, all legislators' salaries, the White House and legislative staffs, etc. In short: every person and every expenditure in government.
So far under Obama government employment has increased dramatically, and the additional employees have only caused more angst for the nation, so now, given their failure, they must be punished. This is the "balance" Obama requested. Private businesses have suffered in the last 2 years by going out of business or reducing operations, so now it's government's turn to sacrifice. Getting rid of administrative agencies would allow business to expand and hire more people as the regulations that kill business were decreased or no longer enforced. And there would be fewer liberals in Washington to do what liberals do best: control other peoples' lives and spend other peoples' money.
But thanks to Boehner and Yoder and the recent debt ceiling bill, not only has Obama been given another trillion dollars to waste on the unions and his re-election, but the Democrats now promise to tax the wealthy, the very people we desperately need to get us out of this liberal-created mess.
