Winning Hearts and Minds in 2012
3 November 2010
The election on Tue 11/02/10 for California’s 30th Congressional District was not a happy outcome for those who are concerned about the fleeing of the Democrat Party from common sense constitutional principles.
This trend has been in place since the loss of President John F. Kennedy, a solid free market capitalist and across-the-board tax cutter. It has dramatically intensified since the inauguration of President Obama.
In the past two years, we’ve seen an attempt to enforce a radical political agenda on the nation. This agenda appears to be nothing less than the total domination of American society by the federal government.What I Believe about the Role of Government
The role of government in the lives of citizens who formed that government (over two centuries ago) is at the forefront of my being. I love to interact with people, and enjoy a good joke and a good political discussion, however, it’s long past time for some serious discussion about the role of the federal government.
In that regard, I am happily devoting the rest of my life to reclaiming a constitutional republic as envisioned by the founding fathers for the people of this country. It is, after all, the only form of government that actually works for human beings. It is truth. The other form of government relies on the big lie that one can become subservient to the state and still live happily.
I believe to the depths of my soul that it is the destiny of human beings to live in liberty and freedom from the tyranny of those who would dominate them. The US constitution is not an old fashioned document, as it was designed to address a problem which never changes: human nature - especially that most egregious aspect of human nature: the urge to dominate, the urge to control.Ask Yourself This
Try talking to someone who lived in Iran, Vietnam, Venezuela, Cuba or in Eastern Europe under Soviet domination. They will all tell you that we Americans do not realize what a precious commodity we have in this country: our freedom. They will tell you that we are throwing it away by continuing to elect those who lie to us and who have as their driving motive power over us. This is an "end" which to those aligned with this movement justifies "any means necessary".
Have young people ever asked themselves why people all over the world will do practically anything to become citizens of the United States or, as a minimum, stay here and live and work by means of a work visa?
It’s called “American exceptionalism” and it’s not because we have a superior brand of human beings. Neither is it about a superior culture. We are, after all, truly a melting pot of cultures as exemplified by or motto E Pluribus Unum which means “out of many, one”.
None of the above. It’s simply because we have an exceptional document, a unique document in the whole of human history. We have a document written by a free people which limits the power of government!
Many of us have died to defend the freedoms which are protected by that document. It is a document worth defending with one’s life for, after all, what is life without freedom? Ask anyone who has lived under almost any other government on the planet. You will have your answer in short order.Revolution in a Free Society
Imagine, although it may be difficult for some, a society in which government has assumed the role envisioned by the founding fathers of the United States of America. If one would like to consider real revolution at a human level, simply consider the fortunes of those in business in such a society who do not compete effectively. They go out of business! Talk about revolution. Talk about “change one can believe in”! This is change that fits human nature. This is revolution by which one can be motivated to do one’s best.
What we have in this country is a war, while not violent, it is a war nonetheless. Those on my side of the political aisle have awakened and will never sleep again. It's called the "tea party" movement. While this movement has been much criticized by certain elements of the media, one should ask oneself “What is the criticism all about? Who are the ‘tea partiers’?”
Very simply, they comprise a true grass roots movement – one not seen in this country since the days of the civil rights movement of the great Martin Luther King. It’s a movement caused by alarm at out-of-control spending by career politicians in Washington who do not appear to be accountable to the people – except during election time.The Future of this Campaign
This campaign was formed for the purpose of replacing Congressman Henry Waxman with a common sense constitutionalist.
I chose to run against Mr. Waxman primarily because of his allegiance to the scientific myth that human activity affects the Earth’s climate. Those who support this myth, in spite of evidence to the contrary practically screaming to be heard, would set this country on a disastrous course based on a lie.
Mainly, I chose to run against congressman Waxman for his support of policies which not only kill jobs and stifle incentive but create a strong dependency on big government.
In the next two years, I will continue telling it like it is and looking for the opportunity to speak to you, the citizen of the California 30th Congressional District about what actually works best for you when it comes to the role of government in your life.
To those who voted for me on Nov 2nd, thank you for your support. For those who didn’t, I look forward to meeting you and discussing our principles, yours and mine, as well as solutions to our problems.
Warmest Regards for a Bright Future under a government of the people, by the people and for the people, I am
