Chris Garner hopes to steal the the nomination from entrenched leftist Barbara Mikulski. I sincerely wish the guy luck and I encourage rational Democrats who still like America to support Mr. Garner.
I’m sure we disagree on much but given the ultra left wing face of the current Democrat party, Garner’s “Why I am Running” statement is a breath of fresh air.
Why I am Running
My reason for running for the US Senate is the obvious difference between the choices made by the elected officials compared to the needs of the citizens. The new health bill offers a consummate example of this wrongheaded direction. In the past the Democrat Party has stood fast for the working class men and women of American. Today they have quit that role and are more concerned about the special interests of groups such as the Trial Lawyers Association, the Pharmaceutical Industry, Terrorists, and Illegal Aliens. In our state, the legislature has fired, furloughed and reduced the pay of Maryland citizens in order to fund illegal alien healthcare. I am a liberal Democrat not a Leftist, and I shall make the differences known during this campaign. (see Wheel of Fortune)
The Major issues that I will pursue in support of all working Americans are:
■ Reindustrialization of Maryland and the United States.
■ Buy American Program (see Bob the Minivan).
■ Limiting imports from any one country to a 15% imbalance.
■ Economic optimization of the Healthcare System.
■ End Illegal Immigration.
■ Fiscal Responsibility.
■ Term Limits, Disincumbentization, and a reduction in pay for all Congress men and women by half.
