Age 55, a veteran of the US Army. High school graduate (1975) with some techical training in the fields of automotive repair, motorcycle repair/dyno tuning. Light commercial heating and air conditioning. Automotive sales. Hobbies include: high performance cars (muscle cars) and motorcycles. Riding with my friends on the back roads. Would love to do more water sports, hunting and fishing if I lived in a area that really supported it. I will be selling my business this fall and become semi-retired. I am currently in search of my new passion and someone to work with to make it happen.
An idea worth spreading
Almost every single problem has a solution, and all too often the solution is highjacked and never used because the US Congress will stop or block it. Almost every person in Congress has taken money from someone or a corporation to keep things working for the wealthest among us. It's time to put and end to this unfair practice for the middle class and the poor. The two party system has failed us for several decades now and it's time to bring in new ideas that are legal and non violent. My idea is to create a non profit organization to recruit about 500 persons to run as independents in future elections, with the goal of replacing every single republican and democrat currently in office. By using an oversight committe, our working Congress would be free to make the tough decisions that American's demand right now. Their agenda would include reforms in campaign finance, taxes, immigration, military spending, increased research and development with the idea of moving the world forward.
I'm passionate about
I am passionate about several things.1.Improving our government to make it more proactive to the needs of America and the world. 2.Developing and bringing any and all new techology to transportation
Talk to me about
How we can build automobiles that get 300 mpg and semi trucks that get 200 mpg. How to develop, produce and market affordable solar systems for home use to get America off the grid for good.
People don't know I'm good at
I fix things, I have my entire life. With a straight forward approach, I can find ways to make things happen if given the resources.
My TED story
Watched a video (doc) of a TED convention and was blown away, how cool to be around persons with great ideas and the ability to make them happen. With all of the negative press and programs on TV, it can be very depressing and TED is just the venue I have been looking for...
