Fresh Ideas

Cronyism

Socialism?
TWe can continue to rely on the old system of patronage and favor, or we can elect people who care about freedom, human dignity and the ability of individuals to make their own way in the world.
The major problem with Socialism is that pretty soon you run out of other people's money and property.  (M. Thatcher) Let's get people jobs that let them build their own freedom and their own lives.  End the slavery of government dependency.
Funded Projects favoring the connected or real work for people needing a leg up or a fresh start.  The sitting Congressman favors the former; I the latter.
 Freedom Renovation
Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness
All God's Children deserve the opportunity to make their own way through life.  The current systems of caring for the poor and deprived have minimal salutary effect upon those lives; the systems leave people trapped in the systems without tangible hope for lifting themselves and those they love into productive, rewarding careers and pursuits.  We need to transition from Welfare to Workfare to Careers.  Most federal systems are more about the perpetuation of the system than the elimination of the problem.  Let us find a way to help people bring themselves and those about them to a new birth of freedom centered upon self-reliance, not government dependence.
Education
Taxation
Regulation
The current administration, and its predecessor, were rarely checked by Congress.  Favorites influence agencies to make laws that prevent innovation and preserve the winners as the winners.  Agencies seem to think more regulation will solve all our problems, but we are drowning in minutia.
We need to unwind the Federal Department of Education and Federal Grants for Education.  This is a power seized by that Government that was not granted to it in the Constitution, and it is an extremely inefficient use of taxpayer dollars.  Federal waste tends to be 20 cents on the dollar, and the bureaucracy, as well as the current administration's privacy invasions, expands this burden.
My target is a total tax burden, federal, state and local, of 25% of income from whatever source derived and payable by everyone proportionate to ability to pay.  Reform our tax code to compete with the nations of the world stealing our leading businesses because other nations have a vastly less burdensome system.  Reduce Social Security taxation going forward and let people manage their own funds rather than the current system which permits Congress to seize those assets to fund the excesses of expanded power.

A new birth of Freedom
It is time that we the people begin to look to alternative leaders, men and women who come not from the ranks of the oligarchically select but from the heart of the creation of liberty, justice and freedom for all.
Throw off the chains of party fealty and loyalty; ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country; and give a confident, reasoned voice for All God's Children an opportunity to serve this District and this Nation.
Join me in making the 1st Congressional District of the State of Missouri into a freedom and  economic beacon.
