Why are you running for office?
I am tired of the direction towards Socialism we continue to march down. Communism, Socialism, or the new version called Progressive move towards Socialism have never worked. Every country that has ever traversed, supported or promoted these ideas or political banners has ended in ruin. I do not want the US to be ruined.
Who do you consider your political role model, and why?
Lately, I have enjoyed watching Donald Trump and Larry Hogan perform their duties. Both of them have taken on issues for the betterment of US Citizens and these two gentleman are “shaking” things up!! Clearly the establishment/swamp are upset because they want to continue to promote themselves, look out for themselves and no others.
What is your favorite book about politics and policy, and why?
I read about 3-4 million words a year on many topics, but few intrigue me more than reading about national and international banking and how it is interwoven into politics. I am reading a book now called “Collusion, How Central Bankers Rigged the World” by Nomi Prins. I highly recommend everyone go out and get a copy and read it (I am not compensated for this suggestion). She goes into great detail as to how the world monetary system is managed/manipulated almost daily to keep the world afloat. And for doing so, many politicians have submitted to these bankers to keep the illusion of prosperity going along with their political careers.
What will be your top priority in Congress?
My top priority would be to service the Citizens of Maryland and the United States.
What is the biggest issue facing your district?
The biggest issues facing the 3rd Congressional District, are the same that face the country, indebtedness, high taxes, jobs and National and Community Security.
What are the three biggest issues facing our country?
See comments above.
What is your position on life issues? (abortion, assisted suicide)
Life issues such as these mentioned are individual decisions being made (in most cases) by adults.
What is your position on taxes, spending and the federal deficit?
We have seen what happens when we reduce taxes, jobs are created, people have more money to manage or spend on their families, leading to happier people and to happier families. This is a win, win, win situation for society. As for spending and the federal deficit we have got to get them under control or at least manageable.
What is your position on gun rights?
I support the 2nd Amendment.
What is your position on the legalization of marijuana?
I am not in favor of legalizing marijuana or any other harmful drug.
What is your position on trade?
Wow, there is so much anyone could say about trade. But I do like the idea that a lot of the existing trade violations are being brought out into the open by President Trump and his administration. It is apparent that the World Trade Organization (WTO) is not doing their job which was promoted as a “referee” for the countries involved in these multilateral agreements. I think we should re-examine these agreements and make more of them bi-lateral and we can take responsibility for monitoring them ourselves.
What is your position on foreign policy and military issues?
Foreign policy as it exists is complicated because our multilateral trade agreements are to complicated (one follows the other) and thus our military issues are complicated. All three of these topics (trade, foreign policy and military issues) are interrelated to such a degree that we should step back and make things a little more simpler and manageable. After all, since WWI, the US has been in some type of conflict with someone on the face of this earth. How much longer can it go on?
Would you support the passage of the Human Life Amendment?
Would you support the passage of the Balanced Budget Amendment?
