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.

Politicians Consolidate Power and Control

All grocers want to do is feed us.

All musicians want to do is entertain us.

All electricians want to do is provide electrical convenience to our homes.

But politicians are not content with "serving" us, as they pretend to do; they insist on gaining more and more power in order to control our every move. It's true that we elect these so-called public servants, so in reality we get what we deserve, but it hasn't always been so.

Originally the citizen legislators served when needed and then returned home to their jobs and businesses to live under the laws they passed. More recently politicians operated within the specified and enumerated limits of the constitution and were content with the semi-celebrity status and the relative high pay with which they rewarded themselves.

But today's politicians, especially liberals, want to control every aspect of our lives (the amount of water we flush, the light bulbs we use, the types of cars we buy, the power plants used to generate our electricity, the type of fuel we burn in our cars, the amount of salt we eat, etc). Our elected representatives should feel shame for their laziness in voting for legislation. . The bills they write are too often vague and leave legal specifics to the unelected regulators and secretaries who finally make the laws that control our lives and undermine our freedom. Democrat Representative John Conyers once admitted know what's in the legislation he votres for when he stated that a 2000 page bill is too long and too complex to understand. So why do fools like Mr. Conyers pass legislation that only increases the power and control of the various agencies and departments impacted, and that takes away our liberties? In the future we must be more diligent and elect people to the House and Senate who will obey the constitution and begin legislating as our fellow-citizens, not as our rulers.
