I started this blog a few years back in order to make my views clear on a few topics. While the original intent was to use this as a cathartic tool for my own benefit, I am now of the mind that our current political condition of the US of A is so abhorrent that the populous just might consider independent candidates as worth their attention at a level they never have before. Since I am not wealthy enough to simply quit my career and spend millions of dollars to get my name recognized I am trying a different approach.
I will be posting my views on additional topics, expanding on some that I have already posted, and addressing any feedback I receive. If you have a question about something I have posted, disagree with my point of view, or have suggestions for other topics, please let me know. I will answer any questions honestly and as completely as I can and provide as much insight into my thought process as I am able in this forum. The goal is to see if it is possible for a hard-working American middle-class guy to even get on the ballot for a congressional bid.
Next year the VA 7th district congressional position currently held by the U.S. House Majority Leader, Eric Cantor will be up for election. Hopefully I will get enough exposure and agreement with some of my views to get the requisite signatures for inclusion on the ballot . I am very serious about the desire to make real change in the political process of the US government but am also very aware that this approach has almost no chance of getting me in office. There will be no million-dollar ads, no trash talk about the other candidates, and no side-stepping of questions asked by anyone.
I am not a career politician but I do know this is the last thing a political adviser would tell me to do.
Like the blog title says, this is why I’ll never get elected. But wouldn’t it be interesting if it were possible…
