We have an uncontrollable debt, an abominable healthcare law, trillions of dollars in unfunded liabilities with Medicare and Social Security, a populace growing ever more dependent on government spending, and a Constitution that is constantly being undermined and outright ignored.
If that wasn't bad enough, we have inept, cowardly Republican leaders in Washington, DC. The go-along-to-get-along-John McCain-Mitch McConnell-Lamar Alexander-Lindsey Graham-Republicans stand on soft ground that is ever shifting. They routinely insult the conservative grass roots and Tea Party movment. When push comes to shove, (whether it be cutting spending or defunding Obamacare) they get pushed and shoved by the Democrats every single time. Voting for someone just because they have an "R" next to their name is not good enough anymore.......
For Constitutionalists, free market supporters, and limited government defenders, we need leaders in Washington that will do more than pay lip service to these values. We need leaders who will actually fight for these principles at every turn. Ted Cruz needs reinforcements. Mitch McConnell does not.
Ben Sasse is running for the United States Senate from Nebraska. Dr. Sasse is a proven problem solver. He is the president of Midland University in Nebraska and brought that college from near closure to the state's fastest growing university.
Prior to that Dr. Sasse worked for the Boston Consulting Group and McKinsey and Company. During this time, he helped business leaders during crises. He was an Assistant Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services so he has first hand knowledge of the financial condition that the country is in when it comes to entitlement spending.
When it comes to the issues, he is rock solid:
- Repeal Obamacare
- Reaffirm Constitutional First Principles
- The right to keep and bear arms is a God-given individual right
- National debt and deficit is due to too much spending
- Cut taxes and regulations
- The border must be secured. Period.
