My name is KRAMPE, DON KRAMPE.
I am running as a Republican in the 2016 California election for the U.S. Senate and am seeking your vote for the nomination.
Possessng a POSITIVE ATTITUDE, STRONG CONVICTIONS and OPTIMISM, it is my DETERMINATION to, if elected, only do what is best for our nation and for the State of California. A strong proponent of the maxim "what we believe, we can achieve," I feel that the power of an individual's IMAGINATION IS CAPABLE AND ESSENTIAL TO AUGMENTING KNOWLEDGE.
It is never in the best interests of the individual for its government to say it is "doing what is best for him or her." We, as citizens, must get personally involved.
Why am I running for the Senate? Because, as I travel throughout this beautiful state and across this magnificent country, most of the American people I talk to are extremely concerned and frustrated with the acrimony displayed by their elected officials, and alsodiscouraged by the same officials' propensiy to cater to well-funded special-interest groups. Decisions are not being made based on what is best for the American people but instead are based on the influence of lobbyists and others who these officials feel can help them with funding their reelections. It’s time for new faces and new ideas in Washington. I’m one of those new faces.
Sen. Barbara Boxer has not delivered on many of her principle responsibilities to Americans overall and, more importantly, Californians. Real unemployment numbers for Americans, and once again more importantly, for Californians, not those politically adjusted, are much too high and unacceptable. Our economy, as a result, is failing to grow while the debt is. My FIRST ACT upon assuming office will be to work to secure federal funding for improvements to the twin ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles thereby enabling them to process more freight and subsequently provide more opportunities for employment of Californians and bolster the American economy overall.
In the area of FOREIGN POLICY, it's time to shift the focus from costly foreign entanglements and redirect our efforts and our monies to an emphasis on domestic defense of our borders and other equally important domestic priorities such as infrastructure, education, immigration, balancing the budget and reducing the national debt.
As for IMMIGRATION, I favor providing a path to citizenship for people who are in the country illegally, but I oppose giving grants to children of illegal immigrants for college. Their parents should become citizens first. My grandparents emigrated legally from Germany.
ACTION OCCURS WHEN YOU CHANGE THOUGHT PATTERNS
As a Senator I will apply a new acronym for the word ACTION.
Accountable by adapting
Courage to act
Think outside of the box
Innovate with initiative
Overcome - ¨It Can Be Done¨
Negotiation is the key to all solutions and challenges
Linking myself to a greater cause of service to my fellow man, which I call life's greatest triumph.
