Roads

We do not need to throw more money at fixing the roads via more taxes or even re-purpose existing funds in the state budget.  We simply need to improve the quality of the roads we build.  Longer-lasting roads lower overall life cycle costs for road maintenance...plus we see those orange barrels less often.

"The philosophy of education in one generation will be the philosophy of government in the next." - Abraham Lincoln


Do you know what is being taught in classrooms around Michigan regarding U.S. History and civics?  You need to know.  We need politically-neutral and accurate social studies standards not continued progressive indoctrination.

Free Speech

image8

George Orwell's dystopian world of 1984 is alive and well in America.  Free speech is under assault. Students are being arrested for handing out pocket Constitutions.  The right to Free Speech enshrined in our First Amendment was not put there to protect us from people saying "I love you".   Time to speak up else we will find ourselves in the world of Orwell's Newspeak.

Civilization Jihad

The Muslim Brotherhood has been designated a terrorist organization by majority Muslim, Arabic countries such as Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and UAE.  Yet the mere mention of the term Muslim Brotherhood yields headlines of racist and bigot from the media.  What are they trying to hide with their attempts to silence those who merely speak the truth?

Wireless technology is revolutionizing our world.  We often hear about the benefits of this technology from the telecom industry, but do you know about the risks?  There are significant risks including adverse health impacts (e.g. cancer), loss of privacy, and even national security risks.

Vaccine Choice

Did you know that the Federal Government has paid out approximately $5 Billion for vaccine injuries?  Since vaccines have been demonstrated to have harmful as well as beneficial effects, don't you believe you should be able to choose whether or not to have one?  I do and I'm not alone.

Tired of the government reaching into your pockets to fix problems?  So am I.  Tax increases should be the LAST solution pursued for any government problem.

Auto Insurance

Auto insurance rates in Michigan are too high.  We need a solution which lowers our auto insurance rates while still retaining care provisions for those who suffer serious injuries in car accidents.  Such a solution is possible.

About Me

My Background

Public Service

In 2010, I left the comfort of the private sector to run for the Michigan Senate.  Through the selfless support of grassroots volunteers, hard work, and the grace of God, I became the first person to be elected directly into the Michigan Senate without any previous political experience in three decades.  I went on to serve two terms in the Senate.  Term limits prohibited a third.

Gubernatorial Run

In 2018, I ran for Governor of Michigan on the basis of Principled Solutions.  Although unsuccessful in this bid, we did earn 13% of the vote despite only 15% name recognition.  Furthermore, we earned the support of thousands of volunteers tired of politics-as-usual.  People are looking for solutions.  We provided solutions, but did not have the money to tell more people about them.
