Why are you running for U.S. Senate for the state if Idaho?

Oh, to get people a third or fourth choice to the main two parties. And, you know, the more I pick up, it may affect them in more ways that they might adjust or, you know, if I happen to win then, it is a big adjustment.

And as far as pushing ideals, I would lean heavily to the constitution and other historical documents. So that when you look at history, you try to understand what worked in history and what did not and see if you're doing this same thing. Cause many times history has a tendency to repeat itself because we forget recent years and we don't look back. So if we do not look at history, we've fail to see the mistakes of the past.

And are more likely to commit those same type of mistakes, but in order different type of ways, it is hard to identify sometimes when it's very close to, uh, let's go in historical documents. But if you really look hard, then it may be very judgmental once it plays out. And those things you want to try to avoid while possible, when you write ilawas and pass legilation.

Because, uh, people have to follow who was involved. What do you want to make sure that you don't violate their freedoms also in the process, but since we're in our constitutionally based Republic, those freedoms that we have also come with moral restrictions and everybody has to make a moral choice one way or the other. And how they're going to conduct their lives. In a constitutionally based public the citizens also have to take responsibility for their own actions. Okay. Maybe we have a good balance there you will have with sound nation. And particularly when the family humans stays together, as you have more divorces, historically, your nations are weakened because of that the children are not raised with a good moral influence and examples. You want your children to learn from example as you're raising them, how to conduct themselves later in life so that they don't make the same mistakes, then life has trends, and you can take him up to the woodshed and really work them over?

What issues would you focus on if you’re elected?

Well, one room, uh, one of the big issues I'm also looking at is I'll pop out grid and internet. The, we have a CME from the sun or, uh, an electoral magnetic cause, whatever you call them - ENP'S. Because someone blow it off a nuclear bomb. So may 52, couple hundred miles in space. We would lose all grid and everything. And since we're highly dependent on it, you would have a great loss of life in a company due to that factcotr. The military is run given scenarios on that pupusas ration, the losses in life could be up to a, to any five, 90% depending when it occurred. And those things we, as lawmakers have to be mindful of that we are to guard for the common good, and we're not gauared for a common good we've not done our jobs on that.

And as far as the budget deficit and printing money out of thin air backed by nothing was for what we're doing now, that is also very detrimental. It may take a long time for it to come home to roost, but will, in time, We have many examples in history, but we're just not looking at those.

As far as the climate change. Like for example, reducing carbon and because we're causing the problem. But the problem is is that with carbon dioxide, the plants use that to grow and, you know, historical past when they go baclk to the Ice cores, an that, and they can see different things when the carbon levels are down a bit, plant flow growth is reduced and your food production is also reduced also. And the main driver on this is the sun and this a natural balance between carbon and the ocean in carbon in the air. And there seems to be it balances out. So basically this drive to reduce carbon and have a green footprint is going to be very destructive for the average person, because then it's going to raise the cost of all your damage costs on coal, electrical, nuclear, and solar is programmatic. You've got to have sun for that. If you don't have sunny to get a lot of overcast, then you have issues there so you have to have other sources of power. To heat your home to, uh, also plowing fields and grow crops and take care of business. And what we're looking at is that we're driving this to the point that going to make everybody poor and will be much more difficult and painful for people deal with it.

The fact is will have been raised to accomplish said item, as far as that is concerned. So we're just small bit players in this. We think we affect it more than what we really do. And there's lot of science behind why the sun, you know, it drops one, 2% and output, which is a major astrophysicist that really look at it, look at the Corona of the sun and they look and see what the output and how it affects the earth and how much energy where we see from the sun. The less energy you also so ended up with what you call small or major ice agents. Also for one, the sun's putting out more outward and the UFC that in this solar sunspots, you see it on the sunspots that when you have very few suns spots over a period of time you're climate gets colder and it's much more difficult to grow crops. And the wherever it becomes Wilder that we can't affect, unless we have a, what you call it a nuclear war. And that would be only a temporary effect. No matter how many people die, this is just a temporary effect and assist, or a system will be balanced, except it will be in differant ways. That we may not understand at the time for those that are left, we want everybody to succeed, to have good live, raise their families. And when you look at it, just the logic behind some of this thinking what we need to do and not do doesn't seem to last for a while. As lawmakers, we need to sort through to that.

Do you have any specifics on how you would manage community growth in the long term?

Well, we do have to have some planning for roads and that is a state requirement under the constitution to have a have good commerce, but we also have to watch the environmental impacts. Now in a state of high of all the federal government owns upwards to 60 to 65% of the land. So that's not even being used except for forest. Now we do not send the forest properly. What do you call a mass properly? Then you have major fires at development, managing the forest. You can extract minerals, restore the land. We've already proven that does work. But it has to be done in a proper way. From, from the time you start projects, same with the forest management. When it's in trees, you want to attend the undergrowth that allows more growth and also allows a greater variety of animals to flourish, which is grateful to hunters. You know, within balance, everything has to be done with that house. If we don't then economic growth in the state will be down. And I, lot of people want to come here, but we have more freedom here.

The locked downs on the virus did not work. Sweden prove that they did lock down. They didn't require math in South Dakota and their economies are doing well. And yes, you have a higher infection rate, but your death rate per capital wasn't much different from Blacktown's and then a lot of the statistics from the lockdowns and how they record it has come to be suspect due to certain financial incentives that have a tendency to cause people to do the things that are not working right.

It's all in combination by staying not locked down and we showed them not locked down at all that I fought the governor for. Then, uh, our economy would have been doing a little bit better even yet. Cause we'll have people from Oregon and Washington want to come over here, visit. They have more freedom to do what they want to do.

As far as the virus, the CDC came out and said that, uh, actually only upwards 10,000 have actually died of the virus itself. Wtih no outher elements, that major elements that people either have on the older. Mainly if hit the 55 and older group, and he had a few in the lower group, but then if they had two or three major problems going on heavy, cold, or a medium flu, or in the morning here would on all likelihood to take them out to.

It was just the last straw. It would break the camel's back and that sort of thing, as far as sales wise. So we really got a watch on the process. It was also keeps all the state economy healthy and it's not burdened by people properly maintained her own house. That doesn't affect the state budget because we pay for a lot of people that are on Medicaid and we help them. Families that, you know, they can't afford the medical insurance. The state covers that. And so the, some of the County budget in each County. So in Idaho, in general, we've had a much more freer atmosphere outside of the first initial lockdown we suffered. Not always, we shouldn't have had because the cat was out of the bag in January, February, the virus was off to the races, no matter what he did afte that. Half of that young, healthy, Yeah, they had colds and flus. They were affected for a week, two weeks, but then a normal, uh, we in the winter and fall time, you had a lot of colds and flus anyway, and the millennials go with it cause we're in closed a lot. So, and the six foot distance was just picked out of thin air and the science on that wasn't very good either. But overall, the economy of whole did a lot better than we thought. People bounce back quicker cause we had more freedom to do so. So where other states, they stayed locked down and people really suffering because you know, and when you look at the unemployment rate nationwide, we've had 63 million people that have been laid off since March due to the virus and maybe 30 to 35 Million have gone back to work since then. A lot of them are very tenuous because they may get laid off again. And those job posts will be come permanent. And you know, you look at the numbers of how many people and that gets mind boggling after a while. So what you do, she tries to take a step back, look at two, three, four families, and try to go through what they're dealing with. The depression, the chance of becoming homeless, not being able to feed the kids. And if family is not capable of helping, cause you know, family helps family. I have the same thinking for my sons. They were not badly affected by the lack of housing or it costs them economically, both. There's a lot of families that, you know, they're young or they don't have much backup or none at all. And they're the ones that are suffering. So you look at that, then you try to think about the whole number and then we can get a more, a better idea what's really going on and you can have more empathy for what's happening because you know, numbers, sometimes they get people get, family get lost in the numbers. People get lost in numbers. And this is an individual thing that they're all going through. He tried to imagine that that's hard to do because there's so many distractions that pull you away from that.
