I am running to serve the people. I have been served most of life, I waited tables out of high school and then served our country for ten years. I am good at giving people what they want and defending our freedoms.
I am going to do the work, not to vote yes because the other side says no. A Libertarian in the Senate has a chance to bridge the divide in America, to listen to all sides of the issues. Libertarian elected to the Senate from Hawaii will send a message to Washington and the other parties that the people of Hawaii were not being treated fairly and their voices were not being heard.
Our government has overgrown its welcome in people’s lives.
Increasing and protecting freedom is my main goal. Increasing freedom by getting rid of outdated legislation that makes life more difficult in Hawaii like the Jones Act and legalizing marijuana. Protecting freedom by ensuring equal freedoms to all people and defending all rights of the people.
From foreign wars, to inflation, and to telling you what to do with your body, we have a government that serves itself more than the people. I am in favor of term limits. If you can’t get done what you promise in 10 years, pass the baton.
I would work to get the government out of the way of progress.
We need to think of this outside the box, and do more than decrease what we put out, we need to clean up what we have.
If we stopped everything today, the ice caps would still melt because the greenhouse gasses have accumulated. Good news, science created a way to scrub them out of the air.
We have a huge trash problem. Good news, biologists found fungi that consume and break down plastic.
Both of these scenarios have obstacles that engineers are working on, and both have federal agencies working against them.
