Why I Want Your Vote ...
I don't want the stress of this job. I don't want the hours this job takes.
I don't want the threats from those who don't/won't like me. I don't want the arm-chair quarterbacks trying to tell me how I should've done something differently. I don't want to be labeled a politician. But, think of it this way ... our soldiers don't want to die when they join the military but it is a sacrifice they're willing to make, a chance they're willing to take, to serve our country. I, too, am willing to make some sacrifices and take some risks in order to serve/save our country. And for all of the things I don't want that come with running for president, I'm willing to deal with them if, in the end, I can help make a positive difference.
Vote for me when all else fails
I am your above-average U.S. citizen who is tired of the rhetoric, double-speak, avoided questions, side-stepping, partisan politics we've had to endure for far too long. I'm your not-so-average U.S. citizen who can recall a time when this country was driven by "what could be" ... versus all of the negativity, defensiveness and fear-mongering that is going on now. I don't think I can stand to see one more liar get this job and continue to abuse the citizens of this great country. I don't think I can stand to live the rest of my life being told how free we are in the same breath we're told to keep an eye over our shoulders because so many people hate us. If we're such free people, why are there so many laws taking away our rights.
I'm about straight answers, and better understanding & respect of the facts & the experts. I'm about learning from those more in-the-know than I on many of the matters that affect everyone. I'm about working hard to create an honest place to live. I'm about trying to return the United States to being a place to which other countries aspired. I'm about a united country aware of her self and her surroundings, not one so divided particularly over sound-bite issues. I call my party "The Logical Party" and I am a registered NPA ... No Party Affiliation.
You don't have to wait 'til 2012
You can learn exactly where I stand on today's and tomorrow's issues right now; and they've not changed since I tried to get on the ballot for 2008. Just click on any of the topic buttons above to read my position on the items the media keeps in the forefront of our minds ... and the ones they've seem to have forgotten. And by the way, when you read my position on wedge issues like gay marriage, freedom of choice and stem cell research, remember that I am running for the position of being your president ... not your clergy. To represent everyone in this country, we must respect that not everyone has identical beliefs about God.
