Statement: The DNC and GOP no longer represent America. They are broken and corrupt parties. As a veteran and civilian I have watched both parties have full control of the US government, and both parties only create more problems for America.

Our debt has skyrocketed to over 21 trillion dollars under both Republican and Democrat control and current Secretary of Defense (General) James Mattis said “Is the biggest issue for America’s national security.” A debt will exceed the size of the economy within a decade, according to an analysis by the nonpartisan Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget. I believe if Congress cannot pass a budget on time, then they shouldn’t be paid on time either.

We continue to send our young men and women to die in wars we don’t belong in. Right now we are helping Saudi Arabia, a regime that views women as second class citizens and undercuts freedom for millions of people, bomb Yemen. Yet our current Congress says and does nothing.

We are about to have a farming crisis, with 75% of all current national farmers being over 55 and 50% planning to retire in just 10 years. We need more young Americans involved in farming and trade skills.

I promise to fight crony-capitalism, not allow lobbyist to push their agendas over the common American people, to stop allowing D.C. to be controlled by the few and the elite. I embrace new technologies like block-chain, artificial intelligence, space ventures, and automation. I want to see education, healthcare, and welfare reform. Social Security and Medicare will go bankrupt sometime between 2032-2035 if nothing changes.

Enough is enough district 8, this country is for the people by the people. Government exist to serve the people, you don’t exist to serve Government.
