America’s problems

As Americans, we know the United States of America is the land of freedom and opportunity. We face many obstacles, but we have the ability to work together to solve our nation’s problems. As a paramedic, I am on the front lines and I see first-hand what people are going through. Unlike our current politicians, I have been there for you in your time of need.

It is time to turn things around. It is time to actually limit the size of government and not just talk about it. It is time to create jobs and promote a business friendly environment that is ready to hire hard working people. It is time to follow the Constitution all of the time, not just when it is convenient. It is time to restore trust.

The U.S. Constitution

The United States Constitution limits the power of the federal government, but our current politicians have ignored the Constitution and have allowed the government to grow exponentially. I want the government out of our lives, and I will promote a culture of limited government in Washington D.C. I will also debate and expose any candidate or current politician who does not abide by the Constitution.

Economy and Taxes

I propose a 20% across the board cut to all federal programs. Scare tactics have been used in the past when it comes to across the board cuts. Department heads scream that they will not be able to provide services and some elected officials cry that the other party is hurting Americans. The truth is that in the past, department heads facing budget cuts have cut wasteful spending, not services or jobs.

We are a country full of hard working people. Our tax dollars are being wasted by the federal government and our politicians are not doing anything about it. I am for a fairer, flatter tax system. We all know that our tax system is to too complex and no one can completely understand it. I believe that everyone should be paying their fair share of taxes. The tax burden should not be placed on the rich or the poor. We should simplify the tax code and turn it into a respectable, trusted system where the citizens feel their tax bill is fair and that their money is not being wasted.

Our current career politicians are not going to address our tax system because they benefit from it. They accept large donations from special interest groups and large corporations who demand a tax break. Let me be clear, I do not think that corporations and businesses should be overtaxed, but they should pay a reasonable rate that is fair. If we work together to create a tax system that is fair and friendly to all citizens and businesses, then we can begin to make progress. But we will never get there with the status quo.

Education

I think the U.S. Department of Education should be eliminated or decreased significantly. I do not believe that elected officials and bureaucrats in D.C. should be making decisions when it comes to educating the children of Oklahoma. I want the focus to be placed on the relationship between the child, the parent, and the teacher. Teachers must be allowed to teach the best way they know how. I am aware that standards should be placed on schools, but individual states need more of the power when it comes to education. I have had the privilege to meet hundreds of Oklahoma teachers while campaigning. The number one thing I hear the most from the teachers is that they want to be able to TEACH, not stress and spend time worrying about certain test scores and federal regulations. We must also focus more on involving the parents. Teachers often get the blame, but the parents are ultimately responsible for education their children.

Second Amendment

I do not believe the federal government should be involved in gun control. I know it is easy to blame a gun for a violent act, but the fact is there will always be someone who uses a weapon to harm other citizens. Most gun owners are law abiding citizens. I do believe that it is reasonable to do a background check to look for any past felony convictions involving a gun, but we must remember that the United States Constitution must be followed and the Second Amendment protects our rights to own guns.

Sign the Pledge – Our Broken Political System

I, Jason Weger, created and signed the pledge below. If you agree with the pledge, please ask my fellow candidates to sign it and make it public.

As a U.S. Senator, I do not believe that I deserve a base salary of over $174,000 a year. If I am elected to the United States Senate, I will only accept a salary of $44,000, which is the median income in Oklahoma. I will put the salary that I am not accepting back into an Oklahoma program in need, or put it towards the national debt.

I am not a career politician. I will limit myself to (2) terms in the United States Senate.

I believe there is too much money involved in elections and I understand that elections are frequently “bought.” I will accept no more than $50,000 in contributions during the election cycle. I will not accept large donations from special interest groups and I will not allow a Political Action Committee to raise money for my campaign.

I will follow the United States Constitution and I pledge to do everything I can to put the power back in the hands of the American people.

Candidate Signature

Health Care

I am the only candidate that actually works in health care, so I completely understand how complicated the system is. I also understand how important health care is to the American people. I do not like it when the federal government takes over any program, but for decades neither party took action and our health care system slowly declined. I believe that individual states should have most of the control of health care delivery because I do not have faith in the federal government. As a Republican, I am shunned by my party when I say that I am glad that people with pre-existing conditions are now being covered. There are a few good things in the ACA, but we need to focus on taking back some of the control from the federal government and allow the states to work with insurance companies to provide health insurance.

The ACA and current Republican plans do not address one of the biggest issues we face: misuse and abuse of the system. I will propose legislation that will decrease the amount of people that are taking advantage of the health care system and not paying into the system. I will also propose legislation that allows states to work closely with all insurance companies in order to provide adequate plans at reasonable rates. We missed this opportunity in the past. Insurance companies did not do the right thing because they were allowed free reign in health care policies. We need the states and insurance companies to work closely together to make sure we are getting the coverage we need at an affordable price.

Immigration

We must strictly enforce our current immigration laws. I recognize that we are a country of many cultures and a nation of immigrants, but we currently have an estimated 11 million people in this country that we have no record of. I am for a strong border and I believe we can do a much better job providing security at our borders. We need to ensure the security agents at our borders have all of the resources they need, including manpower, safety resources and technology. We have a system in place to gain citizenship legally, and people who want to come to the United states should follow the law.

The Role of Government

The federal government should focus on protecting our country, administering justice and respecting our tax dollars by spending them on projects or programs that benefit the public as a whole. Our politicians should not be involved in legislating based on their personal or religious views.

Equal Treatment Under the Law

I am a true believer that government should be as small as possible. Every tax dollar our government receives should be accounted for. We should not waste one dime on projects that do not benefit the American people. I also know that the government needs to stay out of our lives as much as possible. The role of government is to honor the United States Constitution, collect taxes and protect us from foreign enemies.

My fellow Republican friends also share these views, but once elected to office, they begin to express their irrelevant opinions and beliefs on anyone to whom they disagree. Expressing one’s opinion is encouraged, but it becomes an issue when the opinion bleeds into the legislative process. This authoritarian approach has created a culture of hate. Our elected officials continue to overreach their authority while drifting away from the Constitution.

I want to address my stance on equal rights because it is a big issue around the country, especially in Oklahoma. While entitled to free speech, I am not an advocate for candidates or elected officials voicing their opinion on social issues, unless the social issue directly violates a citizen’s Constitutional rights.

Section 1 of the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution reads as follows:

“All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”

law

While we await the ultimate decision on gay marriage from the United States Supreme Court, we should continue the discussion about equal rights. My Republican friends are on the wrong side of history, and they will soon regret their current stance of unequal treatment for certain groups of citizens. We must begin to recognize all of our fellow citizens as human beings who are Constitutionally guaranteed equal treatment under the law.

My Republican Party continues to champion their idea of a small government that stays out of the people’s lives. My party then turns around and tells my fellow citizens what they can and cannot do. Our current leaders, including my opponents in this Senate race, quickly allow their personal religious beliefs to dictate the way they treat their gay constituents.

There is a reason my party is trying to improve its image. My party has a history of judging people and imposing its values on the citizens. There are a lot of really great people in my party that disagree with the establishment. But the loud party base drowns out my colleagues who think that all people should be treated equally under the law. The party base continues to spread hate. They are responsible for our tarnished image.

No matter what our stance on equal rights is, we must ask ourselves this question: Do we think people should be treated equally under the law? I absolutely think all people should be treated equally under the law. I also think that God creates everyone equal and loves all of the people. My party leaders will preach the gospel in one sentence, only to turn around and discriminate against God’s own children.

Our current elected officials know for a fact that being gay is a choice. According to them, God would never make anyone gay and people just choose to be gay at some point in their life. Only gay people have enough knowledge to speak about this issue. I know that God created me this way and I know that God would want me to be treated just like my neighbor. Members of my party need to learn how to focus on issues that matter, such as the economy, the enormous debt, the treatment of our soldiers and the health care system.

Our elected officials should follow the Constitution at all times, not just when it is convenient for their message. I know that many members of my party, who continue to exclude certain types of citizens, do not actually believe in their own misguided message. My fellow party leaders are beholden to many groups who fund their campaign. It becomes an issue when my fellow Republican friends begin reading a script provided for them daily, instead of standing up for what they know is right.

We continue to elect the same type of people with the same agenda, and then ask surprised when we lose big national elections. While big spending politicians continue to take our seats from us, we are left sitting in the floor, scratching our heads, wondering what went wrong. Was it something we said?

My Story About Mold Removal In My Milan, Italy Apartment

mold removalI mentioned before how we moved to a new home in Milan, Italy. Well, the mold was a giant problem in my apartment a year or so ago here in. It was so bad that I was having respiratory problems and wasn’t really able to be comfortable for very long when I was at home. Luckily, I got someone to help me with mold removal and it hasn’t been a problem since.

One day I noticed that there was this mold growth in my kitchen because I had a picture hanging that I needed to remove to clean it. Behind that picture was a lot of mold, and I got curious as to where the trail lead since it obviously wasn’t just in that section of my kitchen. I got a ladder and started looking around at high points I couldn’t otherwise see, and I noticed it was all over the place. Since I had recently been having allergy problems, I figured this was why it only was a problem at home.

Having mold in my apartment made me a little angry because I kept good care of everything and there wasn’t any problem. It turned out that there was someone living above me that let the floor in their kitchen get really wet and the mold appeared under their floor which was my ceiling. I let my landlord know and they said that they would take care of it later. I looked into the laws in my area, and I was able to get the mold testing and removal work done by sending them a letter about it and getting one back indicating they wouldn’t take care of it first.

Once I had the ability to hire someone myself, I didn’t want to be charged too much. My landlord

After the “rimozzione” company did its job

was going to have to pay me back for this and I didn’t want them to be surprised with a huge bill. I called around to about 5 places that did mold removal in the area and found a Milano company with a lot of positive reviews that offered a lower price than most. It worked out well for me because they were able to come out quickly.

I had the mold get tested during the removal process to see if it was dangerous. It was a kind that was known to cause lung problems and so I told my doctor and they helped me to get on something that would take care of my symptoms and deal with any residual mold that may have mad its was into my system. Then I made sure to let my neighbor upstairs know that the water they were letting get onto the ground was doing this to me and thankfully they listened and have been more cautious.

I suggest that if anyone in Milan, Italy has mold problems, they get removal help like I did. It’s important that you run the problem by your landlord. If they don’t do anything to help, then you can use my advice and have them pay you back
