Chairman, Combat Veterans For Congress PAC Now this is a resume (read more)


Chairman & Director
The motivation for establishing the Combat Veteran For Congress PAC in August 2009 was to rein in the out of control of spending by an incompetent Congress, to save the 234 year old Free Enterprise System, and to stop the aggressive drive by the Obama Administration to change the United States into a Socialist State (Socialism and the redistribution of wealth has failed where ever it has been tried). In order to defend the Republic’s “Democratic Form of Government”, the PAC is seeking and endorsing fiscally conservative Combat Veterans For Congress who have previously put their lives on the line in the support and defense of the US Constitution.
