My Political Faith
I believe in the existence of Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God. In a manner of speaking, we cannot break these Laws, but we are capable of breaking ourselves upon them.
I believe in the self-evident truth that “All men are created equal.” We do not need distant elites, who often believe they are better than the rest of us, to redistribute our wealth and regulate our every activity.
I believe that the United States Constitution was divinely inspired, and that we are most likely to prosper as we adhere to its principles.
Why I am Running for Congress
I believe we have a crisis of faith in Washington, DC (and in many places across our country). As witnessed by many actions of our “leaders” in DC (and, most recently, the fiscally irresponsible budget deal increasing spending by another $300 billion over the next 2 years), too many of them do not believe in anything other than getting more power and prestige for themselves. Or, if they do have such faith as I have outlined, they often forget and do not act according to their faith. In fact, by and large, they are in a serious state of denial about the obvious.
Many of our “leaders” in DC have probably demonstrated significant managerial talent; otherwise they would not be there. But, over all, they are managing the decline of our great country.
We do not need skillful managers to manage our decline. We need leaders who have faith in sound principles, and then act in accordance with that faith. Whatever my human weaknesses may be, I will work to provide leadership and example, consistent with my faith.
Balance the Budget
Even with a $21-trillion-and-growing national debt, the Establishment is in denial about the root causes of our troubles and the action needed to avoid national bankruptcy. The solutions are not easy. We need to be strong. We need to counsel together. We need to address our problems head-on, with no denial.
I have a plan to balance the budget.
My plan is based on a return to limited national government powers, enumerated in US Constitution, Article I, Section 8.
