What is the top issue in your race and how would you address it? The most important issue is the $12.7 Trillion national debt. The debt will continue to stifle job creation and will bring mass inflation to our area if we do pay it down quickly. Upon election to Congress, I will introduce the "Free America Act" which will demand a balanced budget amendment unless in a period of a declared war, and will mandate a pay down of the debt by $1 Trillion a year through collection of outstanding taxes owed and cuts to the budget.
What in your experience has most prepared you for this office? Why? My experience in Iraq. I was in a difficult position of training the Iraqi Army while in a combat environment. In addition, the U.S. Government expected me to be fiscally conservative in the process. I learned the art of bilateral negotiations as I dealt constantly with high level officials in the Iraqi government. I know how to negotiate an acceptable solution and I know how government works and fails to work.
How do you gauge the will of the people? Accessibility. I have held 2 town halls in the past few months. My personal cell phone number is on my website and it rings often! I take the time to listen as I am campaigning. I talk to people after every one of the 9 debates the Republican Party is holding throughout the district.
