Mike Kolls (L) for Congress
United States House of Representatives
The electorate get involved/manipulated and emotional about politics. The details of governance are tedious and difficult… and rarely done well. At the national level there is too much Policrap (defined below) and too little governance. Too much backroom wheeling-and-dealing, too little work conducted for The People.
Consider a humorous description of our Policrap (NOT politics) by comedian Groucho Marx (right).
In reality, there is:
Politics - values and positions expressed by a candidate. These pronouncements should be consistent with the actions of the candidate. A candidate should “walk the walk” and be bound to their word (reputation).
We certainly have to clean up our politics. And then move on to the bigger task of governing in the best interests of The People.
My promise to you; I will state my position and act accordingly. I will follow proper politics, NOT Policrap.
The IssuesIn terms of governance, my candidacy focuses on:
It's that simple.
Remove BIG MoneyPolitics (definition above) is about values and ideas. It should function to serve The People. It should protect and advance individual rights.
Sadly, many public offices are filled because of larger political contributions. Established interests and old ways continue. New ideas and new approaches are squelched. Has the $ 5,000,000,000 spent on federal Policrap in 2016 placed the BEST candidates in office to do the work of The People? I'm very skeptical.
Is pay to play the norm or an aberration?
In part, due to BIG money, the ideas of the Libertarian Party are still absent from debate and the federal gov't. Other third party voices are also silenced.
