I may have found the perfect candidate

He Even Has Good Hair

Self-made businessman David Larsen is running for Congress here in New Jersey, entering in the primary in hopes of unseating incumbent “Republican” Leonard Lance. I’ve met the fellow twice now, he came around to my door doing his hustings. And we’re going down to his open meeting next week. I have to pinch myself to make sure I’m not dreaming.

Here he is, his platform as a Reagan Republican. Which is how he introduces himself. Oooh, be still my beating heart.

Dave Larsen on the Issues

Congressional candidate David Larsen doesn’t hesitate to explain where he stands on the issues. “A man is defined by how he keeps his word,” says Larsen. “If elected to Congress I will be asked to take the following oath of office: ‘I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.’ I intend to uphold that oath every minute of every day that I am in office.”

PRO-LIFE: Protect the sanctity of innocent human life from conception to natural death.

FIREARMS: Protect the Second Amendment right to bear arms and defend our families and property. Promote our strong sporting heritage.

GOVERNMENT: The size and scope of the federal government ought to be reduced to those powers and responsibilities specifically enumerated in the Constitution and the federal budget reduced accordingly.

NATIONAL SECURITY: President Reagan correctly pointed out that no nation was ever attacked because it was too strong. One of the prime responsibilities of our government is to defend our nation.  At the same time, we must not sacrifice our Constitutional rights in the pursuit of greater security. David Larsen will work to make sure we maintain our military supremacy.  We must also remember and take care of those that fought and sacrificed on our behalf.  We must stand with those nations that stand with us and are aligned with our beliefs. We must not cede any aspect of our sovereignty to an outside entity.

CUT SPENDING: Over the years, numerous studies have been commissioned on how to cut wasteful spending and balance our budget.  Time after time, little or nothing is done after these commissions post their reports indicating ways to save billions of dollars.  The first place David Larsen will work to end wasteful government spending will be by pushing these cuts Congress already knows about. He will vigilantly oppose wasteful spending by both parties and work towards the enactment of a balanced budget amendment where taxes cannot be raised without the approval of a super majority in both chambers of Congress.

CREATE JOBS: David understands that government does not create productive jobs and subsidies do not drive innovation.  From the Victrola to Compact Discs to the iPhone, technological developments that improved our everyday lives came from individuals and companies that had an idea, took a risk, and worked to make their vision a reality. They did not come from a government bureaucrat deciding which products or industries should be favored over others. The United States did not become the greatest nation in history by adopting the kind of five year plans used by the old USSR. Today, regulations and mandates stifle innovation and drive jobs overseas.  Many of the shackles government has placed on the free market must be removed. This will unleash Americans’ natural creativity and industriousness. We must also allow the successful to reap what they sowed. Punitive taxation and rules that create artificial limits must end.  Once the business climate becomes more accommodating, the jobs will become more plentiful.

REFORM TAXES: David Larsen will fight for a just and simplified tax system that does not discourage innovation or encourage the government to gamble with American’s hard-earned money, but a policy that fuels productivity and fosters American Prosperity for All.

ENERGY INDEPENDENCE OPTIONS: Our nation has been blessed with abundant natural energy resources. Unfortunately, some who believe they know better have placed much of these resources off-limits. I believe all paths towards providing the energy we need must be facilitated. However, there should be no subsidies. The marketplace will determine which companies and businesses are viable and which are not, which are better, and what is the fair price for their goods and services.  Energy independence is essential to America’s future as an economic world leader and critical to its security. Exploring and utilizing our native resources will not only lead us to energy independence, but it will create many jobs directly and indirectly.  Additionally, our nation will benefit by reduced costs since there is an energy component to the price of virtually all things. Lastly, exploration on federal lands will produce a revenue stream via royalties that can be used to pay down our mounting debt.

REPEAL & DEFUND OBAMACARE: I strongly oppose any and all health care reforms that take away patients’ ability to make their own health care decisions and rob business of the ability to create jobs. If the U.S. Supreme Court upholds Obamacare in whole or in part, I will work to eliminate any vestige of it that exists in our tax code or regulations.

IMMIGRATION: Stop illegal immigration through enforcement of immigration laws and better control of our borders.

THE FEDERAL RESERVE: Since its creation, the Federal Reserve Bank has devalued the American dollar.  In recent years, the policy of Quantitative Easing has been used by the Fed to print trillions of extra dollars, creating an imminent threat of hyper-inflation.  This policy of government created inflation is a hidden tax on the American citizen, silently robbing Americans of their wealth by diminishing the value of their savings.  At the same time, the Fed has resisted all attempts by Congress to audit its books, in order that it be made accountable to the American people.  It is time to audit the Fed and, if necessary, to dissolve the Federal Reserve Bank and return the power of printing money to the Department of the Treasury, under the supervision of an elected Congress.

I embrace the governing principles that our Founding Fathers staked their lives, their fortune, and their sacred honor for so that we might live as a free people. Unlike today’s politicians, these were men of politics – as well as philosophers and visionaries. The limited federal government our Founders established created a civil society governed by the rule of law and unleashed, for the first time in history, the incredible potential of man through the mechanism of the Free Market.  Working with limited constraints, it took just over 150 years for Americans to create the greatest economic force in the world. Our explosive growth, fueled by technological innovation, raised the standard of living far beyond anything previously envisioned or experienced, anywhere.

But all of that has changed: in the past four years alone, the federal government has expanded the scope of its power, the size of its bureaucracy and the amount of its debt to levels that defy comprehension. Americans today are literally being regulated to death as business shut down and people lose their jobs.  Regulations and taxation are roadblocks that discourage the efforts of entrepreneurs and investors. They cause unnecessarily high costs for products and services leading to a slowdown in demand and, ultimately, lost jobs. Today we outsource our jobs…tomorrow we may end up outsourcing the future of the American workforce – our own children.

For most of our short history as a nation, we have enjoyed the benefits of a limited federal government. The American people were free to pursue life, liberty, and happiness as they, themselves, defined it.  Our economy flourished and our society was considerate.  It can be that way again. American history shows that there is no greater force for economic expansion than the absence of government interference.

He’s also in favor of term limits too. And English as our official language.  And marriage being a thing between a man and a woman. And in reasonable environmental rules but not at the expense of liberty. And a strong foreign policy supporting our traditional allies and friends. And having secure borders. And having a selective immigration policy, not the blind open door model we have these days. And in making efforts to get those recent immigrants to assimilate and become new Americans.

Oh, and he has the endorsement of plenty of big name Conservative groups and talking heads, from Gun Owners of America to The American Conservative Union to Michael Reagan and Conservative Talk Radio host Steve Malzberg to several Tea Party groups and PACs in the area.

It’s not that NJ doesn’t have real Republicans ... we just have trouble getting them elected. Steve Lonnagon was 10 times the Conservative that Chris Christie is. But he pretty much managed to get my vote, and my wife’s vote, and that’s about it. Larsen doesn’t seem to be bringing any of Teh Crazee to the table at all.

And Lennie Lance has got to go. For a “centrist Conservative” he seems to vote in lock step with Obama’s policies nearly all the time. RINO much?? chaa!!

Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
