John Stewart spent a successful career in the trucking industry that has benefitted four generations of the Stewart family. He grew up in Worthington and currently lives in Gahanna with his wife and two dogs. He and Margie have three daughters and two granddaughters. He supports the Libertarian Party and is running as a Libertarian because he believes the two-party system has failed us. The Democrat and Republican parties have grossly mismanaged the finances of the federal government. The economy is shaky from too much intervention. The moral foundation and national character have been weakened. The citizens are being forced to choose from only two approaches to our problems, and both of them are wrong. The country needs a third voice, a voice of restraint, tolerance, and free markets.
DEFEND AMERICAN VALUES, MAXIMIZE FREEDOM
Hard work, Thrift (delayed gratification), Self Reliance, Honesty, Integrity, Respect, Responsibility, Truthfulness, Tolerance, Individual liberty, Service to Others, “If you can’t be anything else, at least be on time”. These are among the time-honored American ideals that one way or another are either weaker or actively under attack.
THE COST OF LIVING IS TOO HIGH
Everything has exploded in cost. This is especially true of things the government subsidizes, reimburses or regulates. No one has any incentive to keep cost down when the government is involved. Uncle Sam can just print his own money; charge as much as you want!
REDEFINE THE MISSION
Law enforcement, Military and Border Protection are desperately in need of a newly defined mission. As a Libertarian, I have long been and will continue to be an advocate for liberalization of law, maximizing freedom and elimination of injustice. I will be an advocate in Congress for a posture of peace throughout the world. I will be an advocate for a new mission for the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency.
