My reason for running for office.
I am only running for political office as I feel it is my duty as a citizen who has been blessed to have been born in Miami, FL., in 1948. I am 71 years old and as such only have a limited number of years before I will bequeath my beloved America to my children and all those that follow. I have chosen to stop complaining about what the democrat administration is doing and take action to defeat their policies of open borders, elimination of our religious institutions, support of Antifa, BLM, and other causes that are detrimental to America.
As it became apparent to me with President Trump further exposing that the democratic party had transformed and no longer exemplified what I believed to be “My America”. I no longer wanted to be associated with an anti-Semitic, anti-police, racist, Anti-American, hate-filled party that the democratic party currently represents. Therefore, I switched party affiliation 6 years ago. I would hope all Americans who look forward to a unified America would have the courage to do the same.
We need a change in health care policy.
- Portability and the policies are paid for by the individuals not businesses.
- No exclusion for preexisting conditions and lifetime coverage regardless of condition
- Uniform Nationwide policies allowing portability not solely regulated by individual states
- No more free health care for anyone, Everyone should have some skin in the game
- No Federal takeover of our health care options
- Reduction for healthy living incentives so as to reduce your health care cost.
We need a change in education.
I believe in School Choice. If you stand with the Democrats and the teacher union they are destroying the very children that they tell you they want to protect. We in FL. are blessed in that our Republican governor, Mr. Ron DeSantis followed the science and opened our schools a year ago. Look at the Blue states. California, NY, Michigan, and others. They are still shut down. The children in those states are losing out. All those that have the finances have moved their children out of public school and into private schools. All the while the union teachers are being paid and they are not in the classroom. In my view, this is a racist inspired policy.
Who are those students being hurt? The majority are mostly minority and low-income children.
They are being penalized by Biden, the Democrat party, and the teachers union. Loving Parents will always want the best education for their children.
I know the power of proper teaching. Not all children learn using the same methods. I am an example of that. I attended public school. By the time I reached 5th grade I could not read. When my mom was presented with this issue she did not give up on me. She did her research and found a school I attended after my public school day ended. We did that drive twice a week at great expense to my family. It paid off in that I was able to learn to read phonetically as opposed to what was being taught in public school at the time. They were teaching sight-reading and it was a disaster for me and many of my schoolmates. With proper reading skills, I went to the top of my class and never looked back.
Reading is the key to education. Instead of all the social programs and indoctrination (Brainwashing)of our children promulgated by the Dems and left-wing groups pushing critical race theory and such, we should be directing our teachers to teach our children the basics of reading, writing, and arithmetic. We as a country spend the most educating our children yet we don’t get what we pay for. Our country scores on the world stage 38th in maths, 24th in science. This is unacceptable. Defund the Federal Department of Education. Educations is the sole responsibility of each State and money should not be given to the federal government so that they can use that money to transform our public schools into Government schools. Government schools allow for Propaganda to be inculcated in the minds of those who are being taught. Check our constitution and you will see that the responsibility for educating our people was a power granted solely to each state. There was a department of education under President Andrew Johnson but its main purpose was to collect information and statistics about the nation’s schools.
In 1979 it became a cabin-level agency. The Democrat President Jimmy Carter allowed this to come into being.
Now the Federal government has control of the money sent to each state’s school system. Currently, they can force states (by threatening to withhold funds) to teach such nonsense as Common Core, Critical race theory, and such. We need to change that back.to how it was prior to 1979. Prior to that, there was no Department of Education at the federal level. Vote to take the federal government out of our education system. Return all tax money slated for education to the States.
We need to defund the public unions and put our children’s education first. Give that money back to the teachers. Don’t force them to disregard the kids as they have during this pandemic.
Instead of teaching our young to hate America (revisionist history 1618 project), we should be teaching them that we are not a perfect country but we strive to do better every day. I don’t know of any country that is a better place to live. Show me anywhere in the world where minorities (Black, Brown, Red, Yellow) are more accepted and allowed to prosper than America. What sets us apart. is the rule of law and our constitution. Without the rule of law, you have nothing. Stop all those folks who push hate, division, and segregation in our schools. Become a Republican as we stand for Truth, Liberty, and the American way of life.
Join me Dr. Steven Chess and vote chess for congress to ensure equality not equity for all who live and abide by our laws and our constitution.
I was a student without funds and therefore I had to borrow money to attend college and grad school.
When I did borrow money I always borrowed knowing full well that it would have to be paid back. I always had a job to pay for my living expenses. Therefore I tried to borrow only for tuition costs. The rate was one or two over prime. Today prime is very low. One over prime could be 3% or much less.
When Obama and the Democrats took over they did away with the banks terms and used our government to fund the loans. The catch here was that process then caused the rates to rise. At times the loan rate could be more than 8%. They also allowed the money to be used for other things not related to tuition. Big mistake. With the competition of all the federal money the colleges and Universities raised tuition and students were more apt to use the money for living expenses and not just tuition. The thinking was why get a job at low wages now if you could borrow the money and use it while you were in School. Once you graduated you would get a good job and pay the loans back with the great pay your were expecting. Therefore most students did not seek employment to offset the costs of living outside of their homes. Soon student debt got out of control and now we see the consequences of Government control and government policies that encouraged student debt. All student loans should only pay for tuition.
