Who We're up against
This year, this election, will stop all the delaying, lollygagging, the procrastination that Washington is infamous for. This election is time for the American people to stand up and say NO to all the corrupt politicians that have stalled this country and its people into an idle wait for so long. The page needs to be turned, the end of the chapter is here, America the proud, the strong, the free needs people that are not afraid to answer the big questions, draft the proposals, and face the monumental challenges that we will incur, as a nation, in the foreseeable future.
This race, my race, is not designed to tear anybody down, my race was designed to put America back at the forefront of education, technology, and fairness that will make us strong again, and show the world that we are not some broke rock in the middle of the ocean, separating Europe from China. I want to show the world that we are now, always have been, and will continue to be the strongest, fairest country on Earth.
My running mate, and I both agree that we need to enact new the policies, that will undo all the issues that a crooked and nefarious congress has put in place over the last decade. We know this. That is why I support the Patriot Employer Act that supports companies that keep jobs here in America, and the Wounded Warrior Project that supports soldiers that do not come back whole, because we are an America that cares.
One thing needs to be said, there is not a shortage of great ideas in this country, we are not lacking intelligence. The problem is that the ideas that will make this nation secure again die in limbo on Congress’s doorstep. That is unacceptable, and this election will stop all the lying, cheating, and deceptive tactics that Congress has used to keep America in the dark.
