What makes you the best choice for this office?
Of the four candidates running for the U.S. House seat in Colorado's 6th Congressional District, I am the only leader. Period.
If you're elected, what single issue will be at the top of your agenda?
My biggest effort when elected will be to stop a cycle of exploitation and crisis projection during election years. The wars against COVID and racism were unnecessary and endless wars that the government forced us all into. I fully support Trump's initial response to the coronavirus. Instead, the Democratic Party smeared his response and exploited all our deepest fears by projecting crisis after crisis onto us. The Dems' Chicken Little syndrome of always screaming, “the sky is falling!” and we're all going to die from virus, racism, sexism, climate change, economic collapse, drugs, bacon, etc., etc., etc., must stop.
If you're elected, what must you accomplish in order for you to consider your term a success?
The day our government walks its talk of our founding documents will be the day I can say, “I am a successful congresswoman.” The U.S. Constitution and Declaration of Independence are all we need to govern our country at the federal level. These documents are powerful. They are here to both protect our rights and give us the freedom to bravely find our purpose. The U.S. was not founded on control and regulation. We were founded on freedom and bravery. Democrats seem to have forgotten this. They cannot win in November. We will lose everything we've worked so hard for.
What role does Congress need to play in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic that you feel it has not fulfilled so far?
My first assignment while stationed in Heidelberg, Germany, was to be the force protection officer for the Army posts. I learned the first and most important thing to do when faced with a potentially dangerous situation is to thoroughly and accurately assess the level of threat the situation poses. Congress failed to do this with COVID-19 and instead projected a crisis onto citizens. This should never happen again, and I will do everything to make sure it doesn't when I am congresswoman. Congress needs to end the endless war against COVID-19 ASAP.
After intense wildfires on the West Coast and in Colorado this season, what action should Congress take to mitigate the danger of future wildfires?
I don't have enough expertise or information to confidently answer this question. What I will say is I would let the congresspeople and other officials who are in the territories impacted by the fires do their jobs as leaders. As a U.S. representative, I am not here to solve all our country's problems. I am here to represent a specific territory, listen to the ideas and concerns of the constituents who live in it, and then speak and act on their behalf in Washington.
