Keep you money, I want your vote.
I’m not accepting monetary donations because I’d rather have your vote. I’d rather you told four or five friends about my run.
Edward Fish For Senate
I have recently decided to run for one of New Mexico’s seats in the US Congress.
Why should I be interested in supporting you?
My platform is very simple, consisting of only two or three* points:
Constitutionalism: The Constitution for the United States should be treated as the supreme law of the land.
Justice: Having a Just government is imperative not only to the peace and stability of the country, but to the legitimacy of the government itself.
Anti-Corruption: It seems to me that a great many of our laws are optimized to foster and facilitate corruption (especially tax- and campaign-laws).
For these reasons my goals in the District of Columbia are to repeal and simplify many of the current Federal laws; to reign in abusive and out-of-control agencies like the NSA and their blatantly unconstitutional domestic espionage program; and to propose these constitutional amendments.**
Are you a Democrat or a Republican?
Both the Republican- and the Democrat-Party are all-talk and no action.
The Republican party bills itself as for government accountability and fiscal responsibility… yet what did they do in response to the NSA’s espionage program? Nothing. And when the Debt ceiling was reached, did they as-a-party push for expenditures to be cut rather than the debt ceiling to be increased? Nope.
Likewise the Democrat party bills itself as for the working-man… but did the Democrat party push against the H1B visa fraud scams that are so prevalent in the technology industry? Nope. And let’s not forget the collusion and conspiracy the party did to promote Hillary Clinton above Bernie Sanders.
So, which party are you running under?
I’ll run under whichever party will take me. — Given my platform I don’t imagine I’ll “make friends” in the Senate, precisely because a lot of people, even in the Senate, are benefiting from the current culture of corruption.
* — Justice and Anti-corruption could be considered the same thing.
** — Tax reform, balanced budget, term-limits, etc.
