I am working on the template of this blog today in order to chase down some problems that have developed with my template and widgets.

Introducing Ed Krause, Congressional Candidate
NC-11 Republican Primary

Here are his goals if elected to Congress according to a handout he gave me:

1. Revive our economy by reducing taxes so that individuals and corporations can have more capital to spend and invest to increase jobs. Throwing stimulus money around to people such as ACORN will not accomplish anything.The national debt must be dealt with by controlling Federal spending. My top priority would be to recruit industry for this area. We are blessed to have a good labor force, beautiful surroundings and a pleasant climate.

2. Strive for energy independence from foreign sources. Off shore drilling, nuclear energy, and conservation efforts must be expanded. Rail service is the most energy efficient means of transportation and needs to be promoted to reduce traffic on our highways. Folks, sooner or later the gas tank will be empty.

3. Strengthen and support our military and intelligence organizations so that the Country will be safe from terrorism and foreign aggression. Secure borders are essential for national security. Nonetheless, America should be the shining city on a hill to the rest of the world as Ronald Reagan said.

4. Increase competition among doctors, hospitals and insurance companies so that health care costs can be reduced. Legislation should be passed to allow people to purchase insurance from out of state sources. I am not in favor of further governmental control of health care.

I'll be sure to let you know if he establishes a website for the campaign.

I'll be providing a live webcast of a candidate forum for candidates in the Republican Primary on the afternoon of December 5th. Check back by to watch it.
