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.

Political Candidacy Is About Judgement, Not Experience
Pundits have it wrong when they question the experience of certain candidates. It's not experience a candidate needs in order to run for president or any other public office, it's their judgement that matters, and stating that Michelle Bachman or Herman Cain don't have the experience to be president misses the point. Their judgement when making decisions and establishing policy is the important thing. All politicians have staffs and advisers to keep them informed and give them direction, but it's what they do with that advice that is critical, and if they have radical intentions, as does Barack Obama, then all of the experience and acvice in the world will not cause them to make good decisions.
After all, did not our founders intend for the common laborer and farmer to be leaders of the country? And did William F. Buckley not make the wise statement that he'd rather be governed by the first 100 people listed in the Boston phone book than by the faculty of Harvard University? I don't want another highly educated and well-spoken elite liberal leading our nation, I want a plain-spoken average Joe who makes good decisions and knows why the decisions are the best ones for the nation.
