More Breaking news on the Bixler Campaign
As I think I promised at 12:40 in the morning, now that I'm awake, worked, and had some caffeine, here's the views and platform of Mr. Thomas Bixler who announced to me late last night that he was running for Congress against Congresswoman Herseth.
And the campaign season rolls on.
Thomas Bixler for Congress-2006Agree with them or not, Thomas certainly expresses some interesting views. And you can't fault him for his enthusiasm. I've asked him to participate in a 10 question session to probe his thoughts behind his candidacy a bit further, so that should be interesting. Hopefully we'll see that in the near future. And maybe in the meantime, I can figure out what glyconutrients are.
Thomas Bixler For Congress Campaign Candidacy Message
I am Thomas Bixler, of Yankton, and I am pleased to announce that as of today, January 1, 2006, I am a candidate to be your next United States Representative. As a new year approaches, our great state of South Dakota and the United States are faced with new challenges, such as keeping our schools open and profitable, our nation safe, and people living in our state and our country. No matter which incumbent or other candidates I face, my campaign will be an honest one with respect to all involved. Now, let me tell you some things about myself:
About The Candidate
Name: Thomas James Bixler
Age: 24 (25 by Election Day)
Birth Date and Place: October 3, 1981, in Viborg, South Dakota
Current Address: 3000 Douglas Ave-Apt. 114, Yankton, SD 57078
E-Mail Address: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
Residency Status: I am a lifelong South Dakotan; I have been a Yankton County resident for the past sixteen years.
Family: Mother: Barbara, Father: Paul, Sister: Sarah, Brother: Matthew
Education: High School Graduate
Occupation: Glyconutrients Salesman
Political Affiliation: Republican
Political Experience: Member-Yankton County Republicans, Member-City of Yankton Park Advisory Board, Member of Toastmasters International
Why Am I Running: I am running for Congress because based on my own experience with a disability, I think the hard working middle class needs a voice in Washington that stands for its needs.
National Spending: I stand for moderate spending that must be devoted to higher wages for workers. I also would propose a bill to limit federal spending to within one sum that cannot be increased unless absolutely necessary.
Education: Children should learn on certain grade levels based on personal intellect, therefore we should have mandatory intelligence testing for all students.
Also, we should have more opportunities for disabled students and hire more teachers to teach them, especially one on one. To do this, college education graduates should be offered a five thousand dollar salary increase to teach.
Taxes: I stand for low property taxes and would support bills that call for the lowest taxes possible.
Iraq: I support our troops in Iraq despite my personal feelings that we should be out of the country if we are not welcome. I would also call for enlistment bonuses for new solders.
Abortion: I am staunchly pro-life and do not support abortion unless there is proof that the female was raped.
Final note: Let me make clear that my Congress campaign is devoted most to the middle class and education. If elected, I will always fight for the middle class in Washington.
