Lately, this has been the question I have been asked most frequent. What is my political platform? I would first like to address my issues with this statement itself.
Many times people are asking for a party affiliation. I am not affiliated with a political party. The only type of party worse than a political party is a pity party. Dictatorships are formed with a small number of choices. Unlike dictatorships, we get 2 choices instead of 1. Let that sink in for a second.
I am running as an independent. Because being free from political affiliations is the only way we will achieve true Democratic-republic.
My Political Platform
I have considered creating my own political party and calling it the Action Party. Because action implies that we will get things done. Our “mascot” could be the cheetah because we want to get things done fast.
Alabama’s education system sucks. We have good educators. We have good kids… the government running it sucks. (That is the part Gov. Bentley left out.)
I want to improve education. That will be my first priority as Governor of Alabama.
I believe our state government can run much more efficiently and cheaper than it is run today. I believe this is due to the current politicians feeding off the system they have created for themselves.
I will drain the swamp.
I will listen to Alabamians. That is something I don’t believe a politician from Alabama has ever done.
I will give a small example. Did you know midwifery is not regulated in Alabama? This means many people drive out of state to avoid having their children born in a hospital. (You know, that place sick people tend to congregate)
This issue was never on my radar… but I listened. It is a concern for some people, and it needs to be addressed. If it is a concern for you, it needs to be a concern for me as the Governor.
Thanks for your continued support,
