Our Nation and our Constitution is under assault by the Left! Join me to Protect our Freedoms!
Welcome! My name is Andrew Bales. I'm a Republican running for office in Indiana's 5th Congressional District. I am a father to three beautiful girls, a Persian Gulf Veteran, former Public School teacher, and concerned citizen. After careful consideration, I've decided to run for office. Here's why.
Our Country is moving closer each day towards Socialism, closer than we ever have before in our history. I am a Conservative Republican and I will fight to preserve our Constitution, our rights, and our way of life! The United States is a country that, according to our Constitution, Promotes the General Welfare of its citizens, such as Police and Fire services, Public schools, Medicaid, Food Stamps, and Social Security. These social programs are part of our society through decades of legislation. Again, they promote the General Welfare of citizens.
The radical left wing socialists have hijacked the Democratic party we once knew and they plan to bring actual Socialism to our nation. Socialism is defined as Government Control of the means of production, distribution, and exchange of goods. They hate the Free Market System and they hate Capitalism.
It's already begun and unless we stop it NOW, it will continue to erode our Freedoms and our way of life. All you have to do is to look at other nations who have tried this in the past. Their leaders in the beginning said the same things as Leftists are saying today. Free stuff for everyone, make the rich pay, lets regulate firearms, and on and on. These nations became, China, the former Soviet Union, East Germany, Czechoslovakia, Cuba, Venezuela, North Korea, and Vietnam to name a few. They became Communist countries.
The thought of our Country moving toward this system of government is what has motivated me to join this fight and seek public office. I cherish the freedoms our Constitution guarantees us as United States citizens, and I will fight to protect those freedoms!
I am not a politician. I have no political experience, but I have a lifetime of experience as an American Citizen. I've witnessed poverty and I've enjoyed success. I've seen Peace and experienced War. I've been through many gains and setbacks in my life. I learned to balance my own checkbook, set goals, raise a family, buy a house, look for a new job; I've lived in small towns and large cities, I've been laid off and fired from positions and I've gained successful employment. I've lived and worked with people from other cultures, races, and sexual orientations and I've called them Friends. I've been a single parent, I've lost loved ones to Cancer, I've had to file bankruptcy and gain my credit back. This skill set, or rather, LifeSkill Set, I believe, makes me the ideal candidate for Congressman in Indiana's 5th District.
Following is my view of life as an American Citizen: I believe it sums up my stance on Socialism and hopefully gives you a window on my character as a person.
I am a poor man.
No other is to blame for my lot in life.
No other man owes me any good, nor service, nor assistance
because he has achieved more than I.
God and nature afford me the pursuit of happiness;
nothing guarantees it.
Only through my hard work, perseverance,
and faith in God can I achieve it.
