I earnestly request the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party's backing to run against Rep. Erik Paulsen for Congress in 2012.
One can receive the DFL endorsement by winning at the 4/28/12 congressional district convention or by winning the 8/14/12 primary. When in nonalignment, the primary victor takes the endorsement. Primary challenges rarely rattle the endorsed congressional candidate, in CD3.
I do not consider either route to the endorsement morally objectionable. I plan to take my case to Third District primary voters, in mid-August. If you think that's evil, I want to hear your opinion; please email me.
I am focusing on the issues: I'm running for the US House because we're failing to notice the easiest solution to our nation's budgetary woes.
I am the sole candidate with a straightforward answer to our accounting crisis: I want to reduce military spending to 1.5% of GDP.
Currently we're spending 4.8% of GDP on our military. I want to refocus America's military priority to defending the homeland from attack.
Instead of spending $698 bn annually on our armed forces, I want to spend $219 bn.
We will have to make many painful choices, as we fix America's long term balance sheet. My proposal takes a giant leap in the right direction--and will reduce government spending by more than $4 tn over a decade.
The incumbent claims to be an advocate of limited government. Should you encounter Rep. Erik Paulsen, please ask him for the name of the candidate in the present race who has called for $4 tn in government spending cuts.
