The Valley has sent both Republicans and Democrats to Congress. It doesn’t seem to matter anymore. Both parties are controlled in DC. Our Congressmen give the same partisan, cookie-cutter answers on virtually every issue.
Congress was not always this partisan. It was not that many years ago when Independent Democrats and Independent Republicans worked together to resolve problems. The partisan Washington crowd, on both sides, has silenced the independent thinkers.
Government cannot right every wrong or cure every sorrow. But, when government does act it must be fair. I will support public policies that protect the rights of individuals — their civil rights, their right to religious freedom, their rights to equal opportunity.
As an Independent Campaign, We Can Make History
Congress was not always this partisan. Sure, Democrats and Republicans have had core principles on which they traditionally stood, but good representatives used to work together toward practical solutions in the interest of all Americans.
Thank You to Our Veterans
This memorial day weekend, we should honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice, for freedom cannot survive without the brave soldiers that defend it. And as we honor the fallen, we should internalize the debt we owe them in both our memory and our foreign policy.
Jeff Denham Welcomes Washington, DC Puppeteer to Modesto
I am running for Congress because this district should not be beholden to Washington, DC outsiders so that they will show up in the district two weeks before the election and hold a lavish fundraiser.
Chad Condit for Congress Campaign Commercial: “Smile”
As a team, we have been walking door-to-door every day since March 2nd. We have had 18 “Chats with Chad” around the district. It has been an honor and a pleasure meeting and speaking with the people of the Central Valley.
We need to make sure the folks of age now and our future seniors have access to Social Security. This is not an issue that should be used as a political football. I would not want to privatize it because, if it does not work out, the government will have to be there to pick [...]
We should not allow Iran to develop nuclear weapons. But, that does not mean we should send our troops in and invade Iran. Before we put our brave soldiers in danger again, I would have to be certain that the United States was in danger. I think we are smart enough and powerful enough to [...]
Drugs and Health
We need to make the access and availability of prescription drugs quicker and less expensive. We all know someone with a sickness and, as a country, we need to make a commitment to provide those in need with drugs and services so they can get better.
We need more manufacturing in the Central Valley and across the United States. Manufacturing should be a priority in Congress. We can bring manufacturing to our American cities and stop sending our manufacturing jobs overseas. We have the best workers in the world. Let’s keep putting them to work.
We have to understand that the federal government should not have any role in dictating what a local school does. The federal government probably messed things up more than anything as far as education goes.
Why I’m Different Than the Other Candidates
I’m different from Republicans and Democrats because I grew up right in the Central Valley and my vote will belong to no one but the people. It is an honorable experience to run for office in your hometown.
The Problem with the Democrats and Republicans
There is no difference between the Republicans and Democrats. No matter how well intentioned, the interest of the parties are always put ahead of the interest of the people. The only way to change this is to elect candidates that are not tied to political parties. If you elect me, we can send shock waves [...]
We have strayed away from our traditional respect for civil liberties. The Patriot Act and HR 1540 (NDAA) are way out of bounds and go against the freedoms we respect as a people and as a country. I will make sure that freedom and liberty are at the cornerstone of everything we do.
The Central Valley should be treated equally to cities like San Francisco and Los Angeles. I will make sure we are at the negotiation table to protect the interests of the Central Valley.
Can America Make it?
Of course America can make it. This is a unique country with amazing people. But, we need to end the partisanship that is bringing down this great country if we are going to secure a bright future for our youth.
Service to the people that elect you is the primary job of any representative. I will make sure that my office helps you find out the answers to any problem. We work for you.
Agriculture is the heart and soul of the Central Valley. This is where we feed the world. The Republicans and Democrats should not use this issue as a partisan football.
