This morning on Erie Talk in the Morning on AM 1400 (http://www.jetradio1400.com/programs/), Barry took a call from someone who said the most recent pipeline leak in a lake was additional validation that the Keystone XL pipeline should not be built. Following that call someone attempted to use sarcasm to indicate we should regress and notContinue reading “Response to Barry Dain Steinhagen on Keystone XL”

I get a little anxious when someone interjects into a discussion that either the “constitution says” or the “founders intended.” While there is a broad set of things that are clear in the constitution, and many things that the founders did intend, if something is being discussed then it’s likely that the clear application ofContinue reading “The only place to start: foundational principles”
Here’s the commercial running on the local stations over this 24-hour period.
Recently I had the enjoyable opportunity to participate with my family in packing boxes for Project Support Our Troops (see my earlier press release for further information).

I’ve also realized it helps to be able to distill things down into a set of words that can encompass my positions. So today is the announcement of thoseContinue reading “Freedom. Family. Fiscal.”
Over the years I have been corrected (and have corrected others) that we do not live in a Democracy. We live in a Representative Democracy. As such we-the-people do not vote on every issue, but we ask someone to represent our views at different levels of government. In the last week, someone told me they are gladContinue reading “I want to be your Representative”
As I’ve worked to put together this campaign, I have mulled the question of “is it worth the effort?”.

But, I’ve realized that there is no wasted effort whenContinue reading “Worth the effort”
