One of the biggest reasons I am running has to do with the insane amount of willingly ignorant misinformation, disinformation, and divisiveness the two parties use to perpetuate their agendas. I'm running to be a voice to the ones whose voices have fallen on deaf ears of the political elite. I want to end the cycle of ridiculously childish antics that have plagued our government. If you are tired as well, consider a vote for me come November 5th. Together we can start to fix things by removing the career politicians. I want to be elected to work to impose term limits so we do not go back to "how things were".

I'll keep this short. My bid for a congressional seat feel short. Shocking, I know. However, I have received overwhelming support and encouragement that I am indescribably thankful for.

This setback doesn't deter me from wanting to serve the people of this state and this country. I'll be back next November. I will come back every year to try and make a positive impact for the people I love and the state and country I care so deeply for.

(I'll have a more detailed "thank you" letter later.)

Answer: I am the better candidate because I bring an objective perspective to problem

11/06/2016

The big questions for Tuesday are:
Have the people become frustrated enough to seek a new answer to an old question?
Are the people going to re-elect the same people who put party and corporate interests above those of their constituents?
Are the people tired of politicians running the country into the ground because they refuse to seek real solutions to the many problems the country faces?

If the answer is yes to any of these, I hope choose me to be your voice in Congress.

the lack of effort to work to solutions on the nations problems is further divided by the two parties controlling the House. It is time to start remove career politicians and electing people who are more interested in serving the people than ruling them.

Tired of the divisive rhetoric? The blame shifting? The Us Vs. Them? Red Vs. Blue? Democrats Vs. Republicans? The lack of productivity in Congress?

Why not elect people into congress who want to be your voice. The voice of the people. Not of a party. Not for big money special interests.

I want to be your voice. I want to stop the corruption. I want the madness to stop. I want to get our government working for the people.

We need to end the legal corruption in our government. That is just one of the problems I will work to fix if elected. No ties to a party. No ties to big money backed special interests.

Or you can vote for someone who is not tied to a political party and who wants to answer only to you, the people. That person would be me.

Take a stand, vote Libertarian!

With your support, I will be a US congressman.

Agree?

If elected, I will do what is necessary to preserve our American heritage. I will propose legislation to make Princeton Battlefield federally protected land. The land is historically significant and I believe that development of this land is completely unacceptable.

It's that time. Educate yourself. Go out. Vote.

Here's my plan to stop "Pay to Play" and legalized corruption if I get elected.
1) Vigorously work to employ the Anti-Corruption Act (strict ethical standards, mandated transparency, campaign finance reform, and maintains integrity of free speech)
2) Restructuring the Federal Election Commission
3) Work for Campaign Finance Reform and Term Limits
This CAN be fixed. Help me end government corruption! Help me be YOUR voice in Congress.

08/29/2016

Three items I want to address (in no specific order):

1) Reduce wasteful spending. By eliminating redundancies in agencies and spending, we could start to reduce the deficit. With sensible approach to spending and seeking continual elimination of waste and redundancy, we can keep chipping away at the immense national debt.

2) Term limits/Campaign Reform. I am of the opinion that not having set term limits is one of the root causes of the congressional stagnation and the least productive congressional session in recorded history. Implementing sensible term limits would eliminate career politicians, promote new ideas and fight corruption. Work to give the Federal Election Commission more control over national elections.

3) Restore integrity, temperance and forthrightness to our government, through the establishment of briefings researched and authored by experts in their own right and delivered to all members of Congress. For example, in relation to federal budgetary discussions, every year, a nonpartisan leader, such as the Comptroller General, should deliver a televised fiscal update in-person to a joint session of Congress. The president, vice president, all cabinet members, senators and members of Congress must attend this fiscal update session. They must take individual responsibility for the accuracy and completeness of the fiscal report by signing it, just as CEOs are required to affirm the accuracy of their company’s financial reporting.*

Why am I the better candidate this coming election?

I am the better candidate because I bring an objective perspective to problem solving. My years in EMS and Law Enforcement have taught me to look at problems with open eyes and ears. I assess a problem then seek out all possible viable options; then choose the solution that works best for all parties involved. I understand that not everyone will walk away happy all the time. I feel being an independent allows to me maintain that objective perspective should I be elected.
