Political Thoughts

A collection of my thoughts on current events, common sense and personal beliefs.


THE ONLY PRO-LIFE CANDIDATE

I feel I need to address this so people know where I stand. I’ve always stated that I’m pro-life and it’s because of many different reasons. For one, I believe all life is precious and should be celebrated. If you have children and the joy that they bring you on a daily basis you should know what I mean. Not every day is perfect but I wouldn’t trade the good or the bad days for not having that child at all. Read more…


NO STRANGER TO HARD WORK

Following My Heart

During the period between 1990 to 1995 I lived in Johnstown, PA in order to be closer to my girlfriend. She had moved there with her parents and eventually became my wife in 1992. Johnstown is one of those places that was a booming coal and steel town but by the 1990’s most of the jobs were gone. Their unemployment rate was almost 30%. Having a good work ethic and a strong history of steady employment I figured I would have no problem finding a good job but unfortunately that wasn’t the case. Read more…


POLITICS OF THE FLINT WATER CRISIS

Never let a good tragedy go to waste

Democrats always get excited over a good crisis and the Flint water crisis is no exception. It is something that they can use to push their agenda and Rep. Kildee is an expert at that. Now someone who truly represented the people would have been on this from the very beginning checking into the problem and offering up solutions. Rep. Kildee however was silent on this issue for more than a year after it first occurred. It wasn’t until Rachel Maddow directly pointed blame at Gov. Snyder that Rep. Kildee saw how he could use this to his advantage. Read more…


LEAST EFFECTIVE MEMBERS OF CONGRESS

When I ran in 2014 one of my key points was that if you keep voting Democrat you will get more of the same. Rep. Kildee says he’s fighting for the 5th but since his election in 2012 he has a 0% effectiveness rating. Why should our tax dollars continue to go to someone who clearly has no plan to help this district. It’s time to elect someone who will make it their priority to bring positive change for the people to get them working and on the road to recovery. Read more…


OBAMACARE – THE UNAFFORDABLE CARE ACT

My Personal Experience With The Obamacare Effect

First of all let me explain a bit about our insurance prior to Obamacare. My wife receives insurance through her work and even though it is expensive, her employer pays two-thirds of the cost. We have Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan which was the best choice for my family. We had a ZERO deductible and most everything was covered 100% including out-patient services. Co-pays were low and if we needed to go to the after-hours clinic, it was the same co-pay as our regular doctor. Read more…


TRUE DEDICATED PUBLIC SERVANT

All of my life I have been a person who works hard at whatever I do. Even living in Pennsylvania for a short time where unemployment was close to 29% I would work 3 jobs in order to make ends meet. When I moved back to Michigan, I started a web site development business out of my home. If you have ever started a business, you know how hard it is to do especially with no outside help. I was also taking care of my wife and two young children and a disabled mother. Many times my day would start at 6 am and not end until 2 am or later. Read more…


WHY VOTE REPUBLICAN?

If you vote Democrat because they want to tax the rich more there is something you should know. The rich they want to raise taxes on are the job creators. They are also the people who sell the everyday things we buy. So you don’t worry about them getting taxed at a higher rate because if you are in the lower income bracket it doesn’t affect you but that’s where you are wrong. The rich didn’t get that way from being ignorant about money matters. They will always maintain a healthy bottom line whatever it takes and do well under any administration. Read more…


OUR LEADERS NEED A REFRESHER COURSE

When it comes to the basic knowledge about government, I feel our leaders need a refresher course. Below is one of my fondest childhood memories that have stuck with me all my life. This may seem a bit juvenile but from some of the statement made by the people who are suppose to be well versed in it really makes a person wonder. Democrats only call on this when it suits their agenda needs, otherwise they ignore it completely. Read more…
