|Info||I have fought long and hard on behalf of the ideals and principles of the true Democratic Party best represented by Franklin D. Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy and Lyndon LaRouche, even at the expense of happily putting myself at odds with the now discredited 'mainstream' leadership of my party. |
I have also championed the historically proven American System of Political Economy, with its emphasis on physical economy, over the failed 18th Century British Imperial policies of Free Trade and Globalization. In addition, I have labored for a return to a Platonic humanist classical education, knowing full well that the toughest battles we face in politics are cultural ones.
In 2006, I ran for the chairmanship of the Texas Democratic Party under the famous slogan 'Out of the Bushes and Into the Future' making both national and international impact. I used my candidacy at that time to bring ideas and youth back into a Democratic Party, which without a return to its traditional roots in industry, agriculture, and labor would suffer both moral and intellectual death.
As one of the leaders of a national campaign effort to 'Improve Texas without Delay', I fought tirelessly both here in Texas and in Washington D.C. to run the notorious 'Hammer' Tom Delay, and his kindred corruption and cronyism out of congress. In fact, much of my intimate knowledge of the 22nd Congressional District of Texas, its people, its cities, its landmarks, and its rich history was gained in this course of that campaign, much of which I earned block by block, and conversation by conversation.
I come from a lower middle class family. My father is a minister and works in construction. My mother worked for Houston ISD for over 20 years. After graduating college in 2001 with a BA in Political Science and Speech Communications from Texas State University, I realized that my generation and those younger had been given no future, and had been maliciously robbed of the knowledge of principles and methods necessary for building one. The standard institutions of higher learning had ironically become the biggest barrier towards students wanting a real classical education. In this context, I joined and became an active leader of the LaRouche Youth Movement over 6 eventful years ago.
My passion is recruiting young people to the profound and inspiring art of political statecraft, through a classical educational curriculum based on reliving the original discoveries of the greatest minds in classical art, music, and science, everything from J.S. Bach's principles of classical musical composition, to the unique discovery of universal gravitation by Johannes Kepler.
I personally commit myself to fighting on behalf of you. I will never compromise on fundamental principles. Popular opinion, or 'more practical considerations' will never substitute for truth and what is right in my decision making.
