Statement: I am running for office as a fiscally conservative independent populist Republican who is moderate on social issues. I am seeking office because I deeply care about our country and its cherished future. My mission is to represent the silent majority of people who feel their voices are not being heard by both sides of the current establishment; people whose personal liberties, constitutional rights and individual freedoms are under attack.

I have great admiration for our system of government and opportunities this country provides our citizens. At the same time, government spending needs to be evaluated, streamlined, and become balanced and efficient. We have more than enough resources to prosper, although our overspending has caused our budget deficit to balloon. This spending is not only irresponsible but dangerous to our future. We need to reinstate the Glass-Steagall Act and impose additional restrictions on Wall Street and banking system. Audit and oversight of the Federal Reserve should be implemented.

We need to take care of our citizens and workforce before we provide economic and social benefits to non-residents. The student loan system needs to be reviewed and re-evaluated. We need to continue our efforts to increase private employment levels and foster business and agriculture domestically.

We should continue reforming our trade, health care, environmental protection and welfare systems. I would encourage emphasis on technical and vocational education and preserving choice in schooling. We should work on reducing homelessness and improving mental health, disability and veterans’ services.

I would like to see an immigration system overhaul which would put more emphasis on protecting our borders and adherence to the rule of law and our labor needs. We are entrusted to protect our laws, liberties, sovereignty and right to bear arms.

Put America First and make it Prosperous again.
