Campaign first dollar ...

Well after two weeks announcing my bid for President of the United States I received my first campaign donation. My friend Richard "Dick"Van Hecke of Mankato sent me my first dollar for the "Little Guy Campaign" I appreciate his confidence in me and I hope that if elected, I will be able to serve the little guys with honor and dignity. After all shouldn't the little guys get some of the benefits only the big guys get?

A any rate since Dick is my first donor, I am officially appointing him as my Campaign Advisor.

In the event my campaign does not result in win for the party, all of the donations I receive will be given to the local food shelf. So keep those donations coming, I need your support to help make America better for the little guys.

I keep hoping that the Republicans keep getting more candidates for the election, the more they have I figure the better my chances. Once they start debating each other, I think they will beat up one another so bad, that perhaps a dead donkey might be able to beat whomever makes it to the nomination. I think if Donald Trump should win the nomination, my chances would be even better. Go Donald!

One of the things I would like to take care of when I am elected would be to eliminate tax loop holes for big corporations.

I recently received a news release from American Forum on tax havens for Walmart. The news release talks about off shore tax shelters and foreign tax deferments for major corporations. These tax breaks for the most profitable companies in the United States amount to billions of dollars in tax breaks. Guess who has to make that up? You guessed right it's The Little Guys, like you and me! This should be an outrage to most Americans who have to fork over the dough because these dead beats don't want to pay their fair share in taxes.

If I am elected I will do everything in my power to see that these breaks are eliminated!

The full text of the release can be found on the opinion page of this paper.

Have a great week and do good!
