Politics Better than Usual

I will not conform to the dirt of today’s politics. I pledge to you to:
  • Keep The Constitution of the United States front-and-center
  • Look for outcomes that reduce the size, scope, and reach of the federal Union
  • Focus on ideas
  • Speak about governance, not resort to politics
  • Believe in my fellow citizens (vs. imposing additional legislation)
  • Look to repeal ineffective legislation (vs. proposing additional legislation)
  • Highlight the differences with the other candidates
    • New - Flyer handed out at Dallas Co DART Rail stations
  • Not use the tactics in Rules for Radicals, a truly evil book!
  • Not mudsling or resort to personal attacks

My Faith

My faith informs my private and public action; it is part of my core being. I have a Christian world view.

There is a separation of Church and State. My Christian denomination, the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod, is NOT advocating a theocracy - (lcms.org).

Political Influences:

The Federalist Papers

A class to study 33 of The Federalst Papers is available,

The first lesson handout

Thomas Jefferson

  • The Declaration of Independence – expressed the Natural Rights of men – Life, Liberty, Property
  • The Constitution of the United States – neighbor of and mentor to James Madison, the author of the Constitution
  • “Peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations, entanglements with none” – inaugural address
  • Quotes

The Law by Frederic Bastiat (1850)

Mr. Bastiat, a member of the French legislature, saw the shortcomings of newly arrived Socialism and provided the public with:
  • “What is Unseen” – economic decisions have rippled effects long after the initial effect. Often these unforeseen, downstream effects cause more disruption than the original “problem”
  • Legal Plunder – an example of what-is-unseen, where legislation is used to take from one group of citizens to give to another group of citizens. Without the "legitimacy" of legislation this redistribution could not take place. Governments can gain power and influence via "The Law".
  • An national economic philosophy should be set before politics are introduced into governance; consider the Austrian School of economics.
