My Hope For 2014
A significant number of American voters are African American. We have African American Members of Congress. A significant number of American voters are Hispanic. We have Hispanic Members of Congress. A significant number of American voters are women. We have female Members of Congress. Twenty four percent of registered American voters are Independents. We do NOT have any Independent Members of Congress. What is wrong with this picture?
In the 2012 General Election there were some twenty Independent Congressional candidates. Not one was elected. Bill Bloomfield in California’s 33rd Congressional district was the closest to winning with 45% of the vote. If any other significant minority group was without representation in our House of Representatives there would be a tremendous public outcry. Why doesn’t anyone care about us Independents?
My plan is to change things in the 2014 Congressional election and see 30 to 40 new Independents elected to the House of Representatives. How? You’ll have to read my book, “Stop the Insanity Target 2014,” to find out. It won’t be easy, but it is definitely possible! See my webpage (www.stoptheinsanitytarget2014) for details.
The premise of Stop the Insanity by David Welch puts forth the idea that the government is as insane as the voters who send the same representatives back time and time again. And as long as those voters continue to reelect the same worthless politicians, the insanity in Washington will continue.
There is one other possible explanation: voters lack a reasonable alternative. This suggests the voters are not actually insane, though Washington politics are. Our two political parties are either unable or unwilling to offer reasonable candidates. I suspect—and hope—that is the case.
And from that hope springs this book. I truly believe it is possible to offer the voters an alternative: independent candidates for Congress who will truly act in the best interest of our country and its citizens.
David Welch's life has been divided between school (studied economics as an undergraduate at Stanford, an MBA in Finance at the University of Chicago, an MS degree in Tax Law at Golden Gate University), Army (two years in Korea during the Vietnam era), politics (ran for Congress and won the Republican primary in California), business (Treasurer of Dowell Schlumberger, Asia Tax Manager for Schlumberger Wireline, CEO of his own educational software company), and teaching (taught English in Poland, taught International Finance at a Chinese University). Recently, David has been assisting his brother in a small Mortgage Modification business. The brothers have helped save the homes of approximately one hundred families facing foreclosure.
