Statement: Our Nation is truly a wonder! Nowhere in the world has so much prosperity and freedom ever been created and at no time in our world's history has so much opportunity ever been afforded a people to warrant its own slogan: The American Dream.
My name is Jesse Young and as someone who has come out of poverty and lived the American Dream in my lifetime, I am seeking your vote so that we can work together to return to the Constitutional principles that have made our nation the envy of the world.
Thirty-four years ago, I was born; the same year our incumbent was first elected into Congress. I grew up impoverished and oftentimes homeless in Tacoma's Hilltop district before graduating high-school with academic and congressional scholarships. While attending the University of Notre Dame I worked to pay my way through college. I then began a consulting career, that I believe, has empowered me with a strong and unique blend of skills and experience very relevant to today's issues which are desperately needed in today's Congress.
With your vote, I will bring a fresh but disciplined approach to addressing our nation's needs. Fiscal responsibility, individual freedom, free market principles, and innovative spirit can be more than just catch phrases if set free and unshackled. With energy and passion, I will do just that!
Finally, please let me ask you a question. Do you believe that we currently have too many lobbyists, lawyers, and career politicians in office? If so, then now is the time to start fresh! The problems facing our nation are real, and more than ever we need someone with principle who has dealt with real deadlines, real budgets, and real restraints and yet still delivered real and effective results.
