Robin Adair

A candidate for U.S. Representative, Congressional District 8 in the 2010 Washington Primary Election

Party: Independent

On this race:

Elected Experience: no government office

Other Professional Experience: Theoretician (see Education); Ran for US Senate in 2006

Education: Political Philosophy, Scripps College, studying with one of the "Chicago Group" at Claremont McKenna College. Geology Degree: tramped American West, Mid East with ARAMCO maps, hydrology China. Executive Wife, three wonderful children. In 2004 the Medicare Rx Bill sent me out to "buy economics": Adam Smith through Mandelbrott's Markets: I have redefined economic Crashes.

Community Service: Junior League, Children's Hospital, Epiphany Church,  Jennifer Dunn's Campaigns for the 8th District  

Statement: Americans are watching the US Congress with Growing Upset. Congressmen make "deals" with each other when passing Bills.  The "deals" give money to third parties as "unearned profit" (Goggle that).  The money comes out of circulation (Goggle) in Main Street where we need it.

Economic mistakes of the past have not been recognized. Not corrected. America's economy began to Crash in  2005 when Wall Street and Main Street both went "flat". Main Street collapsed without enough money in place. This Crash has the same history as the one in 1929. We can reverse this collapsing economy. But borrowing more expensive money and repaying it for 50 years would certainly deny the American promise. We need the Golden Goose not Das Kapital (good vs. bad economics). Below I explain the trouble in financial language.

Reichert and the Democrats voted "Yes" on too many Fiscally Unsound which add up to an on-going Devastating Deficit.  The "Stimulus" and "Incentive" programs, The "TARP" Package,  "Cap & Trade"...will need Expensive Loans to pay the debts. Such Bad Finance Blocks America's Recovery.                                                                                                                                                                     

We Need To "Bring America Home". To get the US  Congress working with the  People again. To put the "Barn Raising" philosophy to work. "Opportunity", "Good Public Education", "ImmigrantsWelcome" ("Americans are the children of immigration") and  Reintegration of those displaced by the Depression

Independent Candidate?  An old US Senator said to me: "You just don't understand how The System works!  I replied: " But, it isn't working!". There are 2 Republicans running, 5 Democrats and 1 Independent all Aiming at the "donut hole" of the Primary!  I am taking this election very seriously.  

Let's turn the clock forward and "Bring America Home". Care! Dare! Robin Adair!
