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.

America Is Being Destroyed From Within Because Politicians Won't Do Without
The offensive "fiscal cliff" game being played the last few weeks in Washington is about as treasonous as it gets. Our fool politicians are putting on a show to gain position and influence with the least knowledgeable and least productive elements of our society while playing with the very lives, liberties and futures of the other 300 million Americans who work, responsibly raise families and pay their taxes. This is a display of such crass stupidity that it's hard to believe it's happening.
And an important part of the game they are playing is to point a finger of blame and shame at wealthy Americans (and their definition of "wealth" changes on a whim; please recall that the Clinton administration called people earning $50,000 a year "rich" because in 20 years their total earnings would be a million dollars), not because they have done anything wrong but solely because they have worked hard and smart and/or invested well and have accumulated wealth, exactly what Obama and his liberal allies have done, but of course liberals are exempt from the label of being "the evil rich". American liberal politicians don't ever make a distinction between legally earned money and inherited wealth (so the Kennedy and Rockefeller inherited wealth is never condemned because they mouth the liberal blather), they just go after earned wealth. And these fools don't stop to think that they are limiting the futures of their own children by calling wealth a bad thing and trying to halt the achievement of attaining it. Don't they wish wealth and success for their children and grandchildren? And by most standards our elected politicians are quite wealthy themselves.
Perhaps the thing most offensive in all of this is that our politicians are raising taxes on the wealthy not to pay down the unbelievable debt they've imposed on us, but to raise additional revenue in order to SPEND MORE MONEY! The idiocy of the political criminal class (as Mark Twain called them) is amazing for its inability to lead responsibly and stop the run-away spending that is drowning us. And they also seem blissfully unaware of the possible unrepairable damage that America-hating organizations like the EPA are doing to the economy of the United States with its deluge of regulations, restrictions and the controls they are imposing. The first place to begin making real cuts in spending is to repeal the enabling legislation that created the EPA, send all of its employees home, and the nation would immediately be on the way to stability and full employment again. But that would only be a good start.
