President 2008 Interviews
Here is another interview with a Presidential candidate. Independent Hopeful Steve Adams was kind enough to give us an interview.
Politics-Central: What do you feel is one of the most important issues for this presidential campaign?
Steve Adams: Federal spending is a big issue. The fedral budget, with its yearly deficitand overall debt, will crippleour country if it is not fixed very soon. Our military strength, abililty to fight terrorism, our ability to care for our own people, our ability to carry out any plans at all is tightly linked to this issue. I stand for reduced federal spending and a mandatory balanced budget surplus and include paying the principle on the debt to eliminate it. To accomplish these changes will require drastic change and so I support a sweeping overhaul of today's tax code similar to that which is being proposed now in Congress (HR 25/s 25) and is detailed at http://www.FairTax.org
Politics-Central: Never has an Independent Presidential Candidate been elected president so do you think you can and why?
Steve Adams: Absolutely. I am not here to be an "also ran", but to win this race. The internet is a powerful force which is availiable now in ways never seen before. I also offer a solution that is not offered elsewhere. President Kennedy once said, "Mothers may still want their favorite sons to grow up to be president, but... they do not want them to become politicians in the process". President Bush's approval rating is even low. Congress's is even lower. The reason for low ratings is that the governmentis not doing what people want. People are waking up to that fact more and more and I hope to capitalize on that knowledge as well.
Politics-Central: Do you approve or disapprove of the job President Bush has done and why?
Steve Adams: As most would probably answer, both. I approve of the way the President handled 9/11, started to handle the war on terror, and his love for our country. I do believe the time has come to bring the troops home from Iraq and make our borders secure from all threats including illegal immigration.
Politics-Central: What is one thing you would like to sat to the voters about yourself and your qualities to become president?
Steve Adams: I am one of them. We live in a representitive democracy where our elected officials vote on matters for us. Therefore the American people need elected officials that are most like them. I have children to raise, parents with health issues, friends in the military, friends who are unemployed... just like they do. I pay my mortgagr and worry about debt, taxes and job outsourcing just like they do. Who better could represent them in the oval office?
