In a Nutshell? I am a Republican! I am an American Patriot. I was born and raised in Ireland. But I was made HERE. I'd like to make sure that promise of self-empowerment, through legitimate community is nurtured, protected and consolidated.
I am a Husband, a Father, a Businessman. I believe that Government should be small but effective. You work hard for your money, so tax dollars should give you VALUE for that investment; a contract of citizenship. Zero waste. Optimal returns. Every time, with no exceptions or oversight. Success rather than excess, with zero excuses.
I know how industry and enterprise work. It begins with vision, a 'USP', hard work, management and above all, an evangelical zeal to meet and collaborate well. The same is true in politics.
I also believe that free and ambitious trade is best protected and policed by an efficient yet caring system, whereby every apparatus of government is accountable and proactive.
So, whether you are in Big Business or feel like the 'little guy' employee in private or state sector, America is there to provide the platform for your stability, security and success.
Positive progress is being made on that front. Don't lose it. Think Bigger. Do Better! I'm here to help.
I'm not saying that a Democrat does not aim for the same ideals. It's just that we, as responsible Republicans, do it that bit better. I have a strong commercial and legal insight, fused to a pervasive political awareness through years of activism in the field.
I know what it's like to build a company; to live the American dream but also, to have to defend that vision, daily. The battlegrounds are education, healthcare and policing systems. Nothing can be taken for granted. Because our enemies are legion and growing.
Today's hypothetical difficulty could be tomorrow's irreparable threat. Unless we act now. Not against nebulous media hyped ideas of extremism or global extinction. But in defence of our most basic rights, liberties and will to work.
Let's not erode the institution and constitution that make us great. Let's build up the big picture (immigration, crime, foreign policy) by ensuring that the critical daily details are taken care of through first rate pastoral care and forensic management.
Talk is cheap. Delivery is priceless. So let's fight and win, together. For AMERICA. For each other. For our REGION! For YOU. Let's Put the 'us' back in the USA.
