The Top 10 Reasons I Am Your Candidate

 

TAXES

If you believe that the tax code is meant to be a tool to be used to reward and persuade those who you favor or to punish and silence those you oppose, then you already have the Republican and Democrat Party Candidates to choose from.

If instead you believe that the tax code should exist for the sole purpose of raising the funds necessary to fulfill the essential, and limited, responsibilities of the Federal Government as defined by the Constitution, then I am your candidate.

 

QUALITY OF GOVERNMENT

If you believe it is acceptable to be governed by scoundrels, so long as they are “your” scoundrels, then you already have the Democrat and Republican Party Candidates to choose from.

If however, you believe that those who we empower to govern should not need a committee to tell them right from wrong, and that they should promote and exemplify our best qualities, then I am your candidate.

 

IMMIGRATION

If you believe that America's immigration policy exists to be milked for political purposes for decades, then you already have the Republican and Democrat Party Candidates to choose from.

If you believe that our current immigration policies are an existential threat to our Country and must be addressed in a straight-forward, honest, unapologetic manner, then I am your candidate.

 

JUSTICE SYSTEM

If you believe the Criminal Justice System and the rule of law are merely a field upon which to play a game of emotion and half-truths, then you already have the Democrat and Republican Party Candidates to choose from.

If, on the other hand, you believe that they are in fact part of the very bedrock of our civil society and that they should embody the protections guaranteed to all of us by the Constitution, then I am your candidate.

 

THE CONSTITUTION

If you desire a candidate who champions the 10th Amendment when it suits them and ignores it when it hinders them; or who supports or opposes the 2nd Amendment based on who they are speaking to; or who generally treats the Constitution and its Amendments as garments to be adorned and shed at will, then you already have the Republican and Democrat Party Candidates to choose from.

If instead you desire a candidate who respects these foundational principles irrespective of the circumstances of the moment, then I am your candidate.

 

HYPOCRISY

If you believe that hypocrisy is a virtue both in principle and in practice, then you already have the Democrat and Republican Party Candidates to choose from.

If you prefer, just as I do, a candidate that is genuine in word and deed, then I am your candidate.

 

FOCUSED EFFORT

If you seek a candidate that will devote 40-50% of their time to raising funds for their party, who will blindly run with whatever their party hands them, and will then give their remaining time to represent you, then you already have the Republican and Democrat Party Candidates to choose from.

If you would rather have a candidate that commits 100% of their time and effort to representing you and to studying the issues at hand with no distraction or confliciting interests, then I am your candidate.

 

RADICAL RIGHTEOUSNESS

If you desire a candidate who believes that they and their party alone are the sole source of good ideas and virtue and that anyone who disagrees with them is evil, unintelligent, or both; a candidate who will discard the rules to achieve their "virtuous" ends or to hinder their opponents "evil" designs, then you already have the Democrat and Republican Party Candidates to choose from.

If you instead want a candidate who will value the merits of an idea over its source, who will work with anyone who has shown themselves to be of good faith to seek solutions to the many problems we face, then I am your candidate.

 

REALITY

If you prefer a candidate who believes that simply by speaking that the words they utter create reality, then you already have the Republican and Democrat Party Candidates to choose from.

If you seek a candidate that speaks about reality and has no illusions that their words alone make anything so, then I am your candidate.

 

TIME

If you want a candidate who seeks only short-term solutions to long-term problems because their eyes are always on their next election cycle timeframe, then you already have the Democrat and Republican Party Candidates to choose from.

If you want a candidate willing to take a longer view and work diligently towards meaningful solutions, then I am your candidate.
