Do you feel like your life is better now than it was 10 years ago? Do you feel better about our country? Do you feel better about your liberties? Do you feel better about the justice system? Can you feel domestic tranquility? Do you believe the country is prepared to defend against all threats? Is government helping you feel safe and happy? Is government sticking to American values? If you're like most people, you appreciate the life available in this country but also recognize it could be improved. You recognize that we still have work to do. You likely feel worried about the future.

The Founders of this nation recorded their objectives in the founding documents. There is still lots of room for improvement towards accomplishing the Founders' objectives. We can do better. We can improve lives sustainably and responsibly. I'm running for office because I believe I'm part of the solution to America's most pressing problems.

Issues

My stances are based on this nation's mission and values; logic, reason, data, and truth; and empathy and compassion. I am not all-knowing or all-wise or infallible. If you suspect I'm wrong in any stance, I hope you'll discuss it with me and point out where I'm wrong.

ECONOMY AND TRADE

Improving the economy is vitally important to improving lives. We must improve sustainably, however, so that we "secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves AND OUR POSTERITY" (emphasis added).

PUBLIC HEALTH

The unhealthy accelerate the spread of disease and are unable to fully contribute to society. Healthy workers are more productive. Healthy children learn better in school. Healthy parents better raise healthy children. Nutrition and preventive care are the foundation of low-cost health.

LIBERTY, EQUALITY, AND JUSTICE

Liberty, equality, and justice FOR ALL: liberty to do what we want without inflicting harm, and justice to correct injustice. We need continuous improvement of the justice and social systems, remembering that the people involved on all sides are people like us.

ENVIRONMENT

If we are really to "secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity," we need to ensure that our posterity inherit a more sustainable version of the world than the one into which we were born.

The Future, Greenhouse Gas Emissions, Conservation vs. Development/Restoration, Renewable Energy




EDUCATION

Abraham Lincoln said, "Upon the subject of education, I can only say that I view it as the most important subject which we as a people can be engaged in." Education can help "form a more perfect Union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity."

ABORTION

I oppose the use of this sensitive issue as a political weapon. We can handle the truth.

Pro-Life AND Pro-Choice




DEMOCRACY AND SELF-GOVERNANCE

The greatest strength and potential weakness of our nation is us, the people. To strengthen our nation, we must strengthen, uplift, inspire, and inform our people.
