That’s right Amercia! We have narrowed down the field to just two opponents with the Independents still vying for a position on the ballot. Gov. Matt Diaz and businessman Robert Lawrence have captured their party’s endorsements. It has been a long road to this place in the election, but there is still a lot of work to be done.
This unknown face to the world of politics has taken the Republican National Endorsement from many experienced and qualified candidates. What has caused his popularity? Could it be his business prowess and his captivating presence that has endeared him to some Americians?
Many people that we interviewed have stated they believe Lawrence has a vision for America. His business approach gives them great promise for a much needed uplifting of the Amercian economy. For a better understanding of how the economy works watch this video –
Our Democratic candidate, Senator Matt Diaz, has been considered one of the favorites of the democratic race from the inception of the election. His style of politics has given great confidence to the Amercian people. He has embarked on a successful ad campaign that has been the driving force behind his campaign.
Where do these candidates stand on the issues? How do they compare? Lets look at that now.
|SenatorMatt Diaz-Democrat||Our first step should be to put in place a simplified tax code, without loopholes for corporations to find. Businesses need to know what the next year will bring in terms of taxes and fees. Uncertainty has kept us in this economic mess, as businesses sit on their wallets waiting to invest. I want talk tough with China about their labor practices, and to jumpstart the Amercian clean energy sector with incentives for companies to switch. I support the jobs brought in by natural gas drilling — a safe process for clean fossil fuel.|
|Robert Lawrence -Republican||Stimulating the economy through reduced government spending:
Stimulating the Economy through Green Initiatives
Innovation & Education
|SenatorMatt Diaz-Democrat||We need to reinvent our space program. An entire generation was in awe of our trip to the moon, and that new moment for scientific inspiration is now. We spend more per pupil in education than any other nation in the world, but our students aren’t always prepared for college and the real world. We can’t accept this status quo. I’ll support teachers, the ones on the front lines of education, and push schools to be more diverse, more technologically advanced, and better able to meet the needs of the 21st Century.Updates to infrastructure have to be the cornerstone of preparing for the next generation of manufacturing and construction jobs. We need to bring high speed rail to connect every major U.S. city, starting with regional lines that will cut traffic and increase productivity.|
|Robert Lawrence -Republican||
|SenatorMatt Diaz – Democrat||By fixing our debt crisis, we can continue to build a stronger foundation for Medicare and Social Security. I support the Affordable Care Act, which makes sure that patients and not insurance companies benefit most from the highly trained doctors and medical staffs who treat them. It is the only way for people to take personal responsibility in the healthcare system.For campaign finance reform, we have to return elections back to the people, not Wall Street fat cats and special interests. I support mobilizing a constitutional amendment process to overturn Citizens United.|
|Robert Lawrence -Republican||Keep tax breaks for the lower, middle and upper class because he is of the fundamental principle that if American consumers have more money in their pocket, that is a good thing for the economy as a whole.|
