What politicians value during a global pandemic?

I am writing this on March 21 and looking at Senator Merkleys web site and I am noticing his response to COVID-19 is to repeat everything we are hearing, limit small gatherings, don't buy all the toilet paper ect... and it even has some helpful links to some detailed studies, various government programs, and his self proclaimed advocacy for senate democrats, families, workers and small business. I admire his honesty and political bravery for leaving out children but I believe that's bad policy and very forgetful because families and workers are literally EVERYONE except children (I guess children are in families but you know he wasn't thinking of kids or he would have said "kids" or “children")

Another reason I am positive he left children out on purpose is because after looking all over the site there wasn't a single resource included about home schooling or emotionally caring for children. This will be very stressful for some children and families and is both socially unfamiliar and economically devastating. Senator Merkley is hoping children will be comforted by the fact there are some small business loans available and you don’t need a doctors note to miss work. Robert Schwartz believes children need child apporate things, like optimism and education.


Senator Merkley build his response to the greatest health and economic disaster most people have ever seen by repeating senate democrat talking points and posting links on his well designed web site.

Robert Schwartz would build his response by getting a room full of child development experts together  with some epidemiologists and economists and figure out a way out of this that lessons the negative impact to young people. Hopefully a staffer will help me with the web site part of it.

Donate?

It is amazing to me the job interview for political office consists of asking strangers for money and wasting it on self-aggrandizing advertisements. We shouldn't be surprised that after elected they just spend your money to make themselves look good while they pretend to help people. The government fails because  people need a kind of help money cant buy. The democrats only pretend to try to help so the can create more government union jobs. Anyone who thinks today's democrats are capable of helping the disenfranchised in any meaningful way is clinically delusional.

Donate post COVID-19

 

Well, this is messed up. I now have to beg for money. I hate asking but the things I would normally do to have enough money for the campaign are no longer available to me. I wont waste your money on flamboyant signs and/or mailers but it going to take about $10,000 to run the stupid bureaucracy part through November. So a few bucks along with helping me with social media and just calling all your friends who vote in Oregon is what it will take to win this. 

Timber

 

It defies logic that we are underutilizing the forests. There are two things that are fixable with good policy:

1. Things that are made of plastic, generally from China, that could be made out of Oregon wood. Chairs, tables and many other things should be made environmentally responsibly out of Oregon wood.

2. Forest fires are the worst in so many ways and modern logging techniques allow to us keep a beautiful landscape while at the same time creating jobs, increase funding for rural school children forgotten about by Salem, reduce or eliminate forest fires, and do our part to reduce the effects of climate change with healthy carbon eating trees.

It is hard to believe in my lifetime that preserving the 2nd amendment in case the government plays games with the first amendment is mandatory. The far left is trying to silence the rest of us probably because they hate EVERYTHING which includes most of you. Reinstating hunter safety class in schools is a great way to teach trigger discipline and reduce mass shootings. I'll introduce that legislation on day one.

2018 voters Pamphlets

Below are the entries I made in the voters pamphlet for the 2018 election. Look them over to get a feel my take on issues that are most important to me. I beat Christine Ruck in our primary but the race taught me so much. She was a great advocate for Oregon and we will all miss her.

Firearms

Food Stamps

  • Me: And I had gun legislation introduced SB801 which would have had a 30 min firearm safety program for 1st graders. “stop” “don’t touch” “run” “tell an adult” if they ran across an unsecured firearm. 
  • Door: Finally, gun legislation which would make a real difference
  • Me: Well, it didn't pass, The league of Women Voters and Cease Fire Oregon had it killed because they thought it was too radical.

  • Me:... I'll ask for your vote.
  • Door: How do you feel about global warming?
  • Me: It seems like democrats are pretend afraid of it. If they were serious they would introduce legislation to ration plastic, meat, rubber, and gas. Ask people to plant victory gardens along with recycle and reuse everything. Like WWII
  • Door: That seems like would be difficult.
  • Me: The generation that did it didn't seem to be adversely affected in any serious way
  • Door: Yea, grandpa was cool.

Homeless

  • Me:...I'll ask for your vote.
  • Door: what are you going to do about homelessness?
  • Me: I trust the Eugene mission more then state of Oregon to handle it. Governor Brown sees federal dollars per homeless person so she can grow bureaucracies while the Mission staff sees Jesus when they see a homeless person.
  • Door: We should stand with Jesus on this one.
  • Talking to people like you is the highlight of my campaign.
