CORRUPTION

To preserve our democratic Republic and the suffocating grip of concentrated big-money, I support the 28th Amendment (H.J. Res. 2) in Congress:

Section I. To advance democratic self-government and political equality, and to protect the integrity of government and the electoral process, Congress and the States may regulate and set reasonable limits on the raising and spending of money by candidates and others to influence elections.

Section II. Congress and the States shall have power to implement and enforce this article by appropriate legislation, and may distinguish between natural persons and corporations or other artificial entities created by law, including by prohibiting such entities from spending money to influence elections.

Section III. Nothing in this article shall be construed to grant Congress or the States the power to abridge the freedom of the press.

HIGHER EDUCATION

Anytime the government injects itself into the free market between buyers and seller, such as helping more students be able to pay for college by applying for government back loans, it creates market distortions. And, let’s face it, after more than a couple of decades of college costs rising, often well above inflation, the result of the stimulus created by liberal lending policies is U.S. higher education is one of the greatest bubbles in modern times. Students and families continue to take on higher and higher amounts of student loan debt to pay for, what is almost mandatory today, a college degree. Of course, the hard reality is some college majors are more lucrative then others in terms of future income potential and career growth. Less financially rewarding majors leave many American college graduates saddled with debt that will take many years to pay off.

One of the ways to reduce the inflationary effect of government backed student loans on rising college costs is to phase the government out of student lending, leaving it to the private sector, such as banks.

As the future U.S. Senator, I don’t advocate free tuition which only shifts the burden of cost to taxpayers who are forced to comply. I do believe that free market forces without government intervention, such as government backed student loans, will force colleges and universities to align their pricing and affordability to the ability of students and families to pay.

VETERANS

There are few things more shameful in America than the sorry state of Veterans Affairs from the waste, fraud and abuse, to the seemingly never ending news of poor treatment of the men and women who have served us in the Armed Forces. America belongs to the people, and it is time for our elected politicians in Congress to do the business of the people and clean up the swamp of poorly managed government departments like VA.
