About Jim


My first career job following college was with the White House Office of Management and Budget, where I became intimately familiar with how policy is formulated and what our civilian leaders have wrought. It is not a pretty sight. After serving under presidents Reagan, Bush and Clinton, I left government in 1993 to pursue a career in business. 

Our country changed in the events following 9/11, and so did I. I felt compelled to pursue writing, focusing on the threats to our country both internally and abroad. Since 2002, I have written articles, research reports and books for numerous publications, both print and online, and spoken across the nation regarding the growing dangers we face. 

As an economist, author and researcher, I have studied a wide range of economic, national security, and other public policy issues for over 35 years. As a businessman, I know what it takes to run a business, meet a payroll, and confront those totally unpredictable issues that arise daily in our uncertain world. Every businessperson understands this. As a public-spirited individual with a deep knowledge of issues and solutions, I have an intense desire to be of service in this, our time of need.

I believe 2020 will be a critical election year in determining the direction our nation goes. Will it continue to recover as it has for the past three years, despite furious opposition from big government vested interests, or will it revert to a slow, suicidal, downward slide toward socialism? The choice is yours. If you want someone who will relentlessly fight for you in the U.S. Congress, I will be honored to have your support.

Why I'm Running for US Congress

I have always had a public spirit — a passion for how public policy can affect our lives. That public spirit has grown to grave concern as I watch our nation being torn apart by a political system that tosses aside the fabric of our Constitution and the rule of law.

As a student and instructor of economics in the 1980s, I was fascinated by the morbid attraction so many people have for socialism. Socialism’s fatal flaws can easily be identified by any half-decent, first year economics student. In my wildest dreams, I never thought that socialism would be mainstream in American politics… but here we are. 

I could not sit by and watch the threat of socialism destroy our country. 

I’m running for Congress to protect and defend the freedom and safety for all hardworking Americans.
