As the elections in 2014 begin to take shape, one thing has become evident: this will not be about Tea Party verses Socialism nor is it about Republican verses Democrat. No, 2014 is about issues, major issues. It is about an unemployment rate that is unacceptable yet becoming the norm. It is about a national debt that is out of control. It is about continued out-of-control spending that swells that debt. It is about porous borders through which criminals flow. It is about a government that is consuming our economy and grows like some sci-fi monster. It is about too many restrictions on business, too many taxes, too invasive a government, health care that’s a mess and energy dependence.
More important, 2014 is about solutions to these issues. Some candidates are, already, a part of the problem. Others will understand the problems and see the solutions, or, at least, a starting place on the path to the solution.
The key to America’s future will be the American voter. They must decide, “Are they content to slide into a government controlled state, a second rate economy, and a mediocre country, or do they want to make the tough choices, put our country back to its former greatness and stand again as the hallmark of the success of freedom.”
In the following months, I shall offer up my own solutions based on solid core Principles, not platitudes to make everyone “feel” good. I will welcome your comments and input.
In the meantime, I invite you to donate to my campaign. The maximum to the November 2014 election is $5,200; however any donation is helpful. A $5 donation made monthly will add up by November 2014.
Thank you for your support.
I leave you with two quotes:
"We should never despair, our situation before has been unpromising and has changed for the better, so I trust, it will again. If new difficulties arise, we must only put forth new exertions and proportion our efforts to the exigency of the times." General George Washington at Valley Forge, letter to Philip Schuyler, 1777
“You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children's children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done.” Ronald Reagan, GOP National Convention, 1964
