Elected Experience: No information submitted

Other Professional Experience: A Union member for over 24 years the last 15 in the grocery union. Spending the last 20 years in renewable energy research and in combustion engine improvements. Even in Cold Fusion which is based on rotational field friction inside a palladium crystalline structure moving the palladium electrons to different orbits resulting in heat they see. Think of 4 connected balls on a vibrating string (Protons, Neutrons, Protons, Neutrons.) vibrating till they move the palladium crystalline structures out of the way to from a helium nucleus.

Statement: Campaign Promise: Work to make America more energy independent. I will not run for re-election. I will take no campaign contributions. Lots of politicians go to Washington DC to write laws that you need a lawyer to tell you what they mean. I will not. Politicians spend money carelessly. I will not.

America has the ability to make almost all of it transportation fuel from 1.3 billion tons of biomass using wind energy, geothermal energy and hydropower. America can eliminate all need for foreign oil. Washington and Oregon are among the best states to start a biomass program. This is the green energy will provide millions of job in America. The funding will come from the private sector at over 1 trillion dollars. Run of the river hydropower can pull CO2 out of the atmosphere and turn it into methanol then to gasoline. The methanol can be used for general energy uses.

Wind power along the Missouri and Columbia River systems can also use wind power to make methanol which can be converted into gasoline. Directional drilling along with flame jet drilling and hydro-jet drilling can connect two geothermal wells and form a leak proof loop in Hot Dry Rocks to provide additional non-fossil fuel energy. The government has all of the information to create energy independence. They do not have the vision or will to do so. I do.

I support additional research into Aids treatment, including the use of injectable dyes like Rose Bengal to attach to the Aids virus so that the kidney can process the dye and the Aids virus can be removed from the body.

Constitutional Amendment: Congressmen and Senators are to hand write all the laws they want to become law. If physically unable to another member of congress can do it for them.
