Statement: A Politician Focused on Solutions, Not on Party Politics

As you vote, ask yourself one simple question, have you been getting the government you want from Washington D. C?  As Americans, we face serious issues that need serious solutions not more party grandstanding.  Enough with the Party of "No" and the Party of "Endlessly Big Government!"  Electing the Representative of either major party won't change what you have been getting! To get something different, vote differently, vote independent!

I will focus on solutions because good ideas don't have a party affiliation! It is time to think independent, be independent, and vote independent!

As an Independent, I guarantee the 4th District, that I will place the interest and the will of this district above any party or any agenda other than the 4th District's. It is way past time that the voice of your representative carried Your message to Congress.  As I have met you, I have heard that you want a genuine financially conservative Representative.  I will be that voice in Congress. 

You want a representative who is strong on assuring that we protect those fundamental rights assured to each of us under our Bill of Rights.  I assure you that these classic principles will guide me in the votes that I cast on your behalf. You have told me that you care about solving the challenging problems that confront our nation, like illegal immigration, energy independence within this decade, improving our economy, making sure that the "security" stays in Social Security, making sure that American small businesses and Americans are treated fairly both here and abroad.  These very real issues deserve serious solutions not partisan grandstanding between the two major parties in an effort to manipulate public opinion. 

Elect an Independent for political leadership that is focused on solutions.
