“I earnestly dream of, and seek to hasten the day, that people of the US and worldwide can live in freedom. A corporatist/banking cartel has largely seized control of power in the west and large parts of the rest of the world. The heart of this power is exercised through the production and control of fiat money which ensures banking control and acts as an enabler of government overreach. As a congressman, a top priority would be to work toward repeal of legal tender laws, rapid phasing out of the Federal Reserve and removal of impediments to alternative currencies. All federal programs not directly authorized by article 1 section 8 of the US Constitution should be actively phased out. Control and decisions should be pushed as close to the people as possible, either to individuals themselves or local and state government. This is the ultimate balance of power envisioned in the Constitution. Government should not be used as a tool to manipulate society either by the left or right.”

“Interventionist wars and global policing on the backs of US citizens must come to an end immediately. Civil liberties as stated in the Bill of Rights must be regained, starting with the repeal of the P.A.T.R.I.O.T. Act, and onerous NDAA provisions. Congress must reassert its role by reassuming powers given by default to the executive branch. Doing these things would decrease the size of the Federal Government by over 70%. The goal is to restore our peace, freedom, and prosperity.”
