As I tour our voting district I ask people, “What’s wrong with government?” They overwhelmingly answer, “Everything!”
Well, I felt the same and wanted to help so I studied issues, read books, wrote and called my Congressmen and Senators many times and finally realized I have absolutely no representation in government.
By trade I’m a software engineer. In programming we have something called an if-then-else statement. If you will elect me to Congress, I will apply these rules to EVERYTHING:
If you or your family can resolve an issue, then don’t delegate it to your church or school.
Else if a city can resolve an issue, then don’t delegate it to the county.
Else if a county can resolve an issue, then don’t delegate it to the state.
Else if a state can resolve an issue, then don’t let the federal government intervene, and certainly never world government!
Today roles are turned upside-down. The federal government wants to control everything. They tell us they know better than we do.
A perfect example of this is Obamacare. Healthcare doesn’t belong at federal government level, nor at the state, county or even city. Your conscience knows better.
Vote Robert Stevens for Congress and I’ll work to toss out everything that can be done better by lower levels of government, communities or individuals.
David vs a Well-Funded Goliath
I am the underdog candidate but this is America, a land of opportunity where hard-working men and women of faith can rise out of obscurity to accomplish great feats. I will solve difficult problems, elevate the public discourse and inspire my fellow citizens.
Jason Chaffetz has served in Congress for six years—as long as President Obama. Haven’t we had enough? As believers in the blessings of revolving opportunity, isn’t it time to give somebody else a chance? Let’s thank Congressman Chaffetz for three terms in public service and release him so he can serve his country in another role. Vote Robert Stevens for Congress. Let me show you what I can do.
