Running for office has never been an ambition for me. 

But I could not stand on the sidelines while ambitious politicians tear our country apart - or drag us into the nightmare of socialism. 

For the last 30 years, I’ve focused on solving problems by offering a voice of reason in an often-unreasonable world.

I’m not going to complain, I'm not going to protest.  I’m running for Congress to restore hope, fix problems, and get things done. Period.

Rather, this election will determine whether or not America continues down a path towards socialism, that is, a takeover of our entire economy by the federal government. It is a stark choice indeed.

The need to fight and work for freedom hit close to home

Looking at what Congress is doing to us today, it struck me: The freedom-extinction generation is here today! Socialism is on the march in America. I am running for Congress because America is dangling on this precipice of socialism, and if we fail to stand up and fight to preserve our freedom and liberty, it may be lost forever. We can’t let that happen.
