The House of Representatives is the people’s house. Let’s return it to the people with an engaged constituency.


Take The Challenge

The 2012 General Election approaches. It is unnecessary to provide a litany of grievances. The national economy is our reality and evident in your neighborhood every day. For the solution to these problems and a clear vision into our Nation’s future, I challenge you to look beyond the shallow advertising, slogans, and incomplete sound bites that have become our political discourse. Thomas Jefferson instructed that an informed population was “the most certain and most legitimate engine of government.”

 I have published my political leadership platform here to be openly examined and confronted. Read the positions thoroughly. Evaluate them. If you agree with them, join our team and help us spread the word. If you dispute my ideas, contact me and let’s discuss them, civilly and face to face, personally or hold a town hall meeting, big or small. Let me know what you think, The House of Representatives is the people’s house. Let’s return it to the people with an engaged constituency. I respectfully request you to evaluate my leadership and vision for a better direction in our Congress.

 The future of our Nation and future generations’ prosperity resides in the wisdom of our political choices. Do not cast a vote based upon a (D) or an (R) after a candidate’s name. Rise above the sound bites and slogans, judge for yourself and make an informed decision.

Common Sense Principles

Taxation is necessary, but is not an endless source of funding for pet projects. Your income belongs to you, not the federal government. Every dollar taxed is one less dollar in the private sector where it can grow the economy and jobs. Finally, the use of taxation for class warfare is morally wrong.

Balanced Budget
Congress is now on its 4th consecutive year of spending the American taxpayers’ money without a budget. Spending must be cut and tax revenue must be raised to fix the damage that has already been done.  READ MORE

Legislative Equality
Our founding documents guarantee all Americans equal protection under the law. Legislation that favors one group of Americans over another for arbitrary reasons is institutional discrimination. This is not only a brazen contradiction of The Bill of Rights, but also unethical and immoral. We, the people deserve better.   READ MORE

Grow The Economy
Congress can do three things immediately to grow the economy. Lower taxation will lead to more private sector growth. Remove obstructions to domestic energy to lower production costs. Remove regulations that create non-competitive monopolies. None of these require taxpayer funding. All will result in economic growth and jobs.  READ MORE

Representation or Compromise
A Congressional Representative must represent all of the people in that Congressional District, not the ones he agrees with. That involves compromise here, in the 53rd district. When your Congressman goes to Washington and compromises with politicians who represent others, they are no longer representing you. That is unacceptable.   READ MORE

Congress has the responsibility to protect American families through strong national defense and federal law enforcement. Congress has the duty of putting American families ahead of lobbyists in energy and taxation policy. Finally, Congress must not attempt to replace your family with the federal government.   READ MORE

The Declaration of Independence
reaffirms all have a God-given right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Prior to the Civil War, one citizen’s right to property could exceed another’s right to life and liberty. That contradiction has been fixed by great civil right’s advocates in our history everywhere in our society except for children in the womb.   READ MORE

A Promise to Seniors
We owe our liberty and prosperity to the generations before us. Social security and Medicare were promises made to these great Americans. I will never betray a promise nor will I see all their hard work and success sold away on my generation’s watch.  READ MORE

Approval vs Incumbency
 Congress has a 10% approval rate and a 90% re-election rate for incumbents. The skill set it takes to get the job is not the same skill set it takes to do the job. READ MORE

National Defense
Congress must make an informed decision, based on fact, and reflective of the will of the American people before America’s sons and daughters are put in harm’s way. Congress has attempted to play both sides of the fence in our current conflicts.   READ MORE

The issue of immigration is clouded in propaganda. When one side says the phrase “immigration reform” the other side hears “amnesty.” When that side says “enforcement” the first side hears “discrimination.” This is a result of mixed messages, inconsistent policies, and political pandering.

Voter ID
Congress has sent our military members to 2 different combat zones to protect the integrity of elections abroad. Simultaneously, our military absentee votes are being erased by fraudulent votes here. Congress has an obligation to stop this civil rights violation. Content.  READ MORE

For Those Who Serve
Those who protect and defend our community, borders, and Nation deserve the same courage from their Congressional Representative that they display every day on their jobs.   READ MORE

I am not asking for your vote

 as a Republican or Democrat,
but as an American.

It's not too late to turn our country around and be strong once again.  We deserve leadership that can bring about real change, not just lip service.  The same old Washington political machine is no longer acceptable. We see that things around us have gotten worse, not better.  People are out of work and loosing their homes.  Gas prices have crippled  our everyday commute to work and school. Our neighbors are hurting. Our economy did not hit bottom because of us. The current leadership in Washington has failed us!

This is why I'm running for Congress.  I am one of your neighbors, I am not part of the problems in Washington DC. This is my home.  I love my community and my loyalty stays here.

This election will be one of the most important elections in our lives.  I believe in the people of this great Nation.  I would be honored to work for you and represent you. Please help me to make a difference for all of us.
