Ted Rusk
for Congress

Welcome!

Let me start by describing my positions extremely clearly, unlike many of the current day politicians who love the generic happy statements!


IMMIGRATION - GREENCARDS NOW!

I will deal with President Trump on getting amnesty for illegals in 2019, not waiting three more years, or probably seven years like most of the other candidates approach. These people's lives have been in limbo for so many years as politicians talk, talk, talk! We have not had amnesty since Reagan. We will have to compromise a bit. We will need a secure border! We will need to kick out a lot of criminal types and such. But let's make that deal to spare these people the mental anguish of waiting for ICE to break their doors down during the night.


AFGHANISTAN - GET OUT!

This was started under a Republican. It was continued by an anti-war Democrat. This Republican ran on getting out of Afghanistan. Let's take that opportunity to tell the defense lobby: sorry but no more gravy train! This war is the longest the U.S.A. has ever fought! We didn't even spend this much time breaking from the Brits. It has cost us $2 Trillion! $80 Billion a year flushed down the toilet every year that would go a long way on helping this homeless crisis and "real" healthcare reform!


TRADE - MADE IN USA

We can bring our manufacturing jobs back. Trump ran on this issue. We need to go after these Midwestern manufacturing jobs if we ever expect to win the presidency again! A simple flat tariff to attempt to bring each nation into balance. The level will be set by them. That is to say, if they want the current level of trade then they merely need to purchase the same amount as they sell us.


MILITARY - PAY TO PLAY

We should stop protecting, for free, wealthy countries that have been taking advantage of our generous nature for decades. Japan, Germany and Korea should help us bear the cost of this presence. We now have troops in so many countries that we are shocked now and then when we find out soldiers were killed in Niger or Yemen. It is time to rebuild the United Nations to handle these small skirmishes that pop up from time to time.


BUDGET - BALANCE IT

When I graduated high school our national debt, after 205 years, was $1 Trillion. I am still not retired and it is now $20 Trillion! Neither party will touch this issue. I will! It needs to be balanced. Cuts first! Taxes only if needed.



This party should be the party of choice for the majority of the electorate. It is a very inclusive party yet it has strayed from its' principles. I am wondering why this party leadership won't take a deal like "wall for amnesty". Did they sell out to the cheap labor lobby? I wonder why they won't balance a budget. Clinton did it! They are like the other party, afraid to cut spending or raise taxes. This party needs a major shake up and overhaul. An overhaul that will build a better, more responsive, more loving and caring party that can be respected for the remainder of this century much like an FDR period.. 


This is certainly the low point in American history in my adult lifetime.We have allowed politicians and special interests to form us into sad, pathetic, hypochondriac, neurotic, paranoid, unhealthy and unhappy citizens! Both parties and their associates are tearing us apart with hatred. Let us bring back a bit of the 70's hippie spirit! Young'uns better google that one! 


For those Dems who did not follow Trump during the primaries let me say this: For 25 or so years both parties had agreed to leave borders open, continue shipping our jobs overseas, letting the war rage on and never even attempt at producing a balanced budget. Both parties sold out to special business interests. Trump shook up their party by killing 16 competitors! They hated him when he started. Now they are accepting his ideas. I am saying we can deal with him! Forget his personality. Let's get what we want. He is just a brash NYC guy who has certainly sat down and negotiated with the Italian Mafia. That is how he deals. He is tough. But I believe even he would love a win-win situation! And we together can set up that win-win!


We are so in need of healing in this country. We are at the bottom now. Are you ready to speak up and begin the healing process?


I am asking the people of the 39th district to cast your vote for me in order to protest our current system in American politics! Here are some of my crazy promises for this district:

Promises for the 39th district!

  • I will abstain from all votes in the house as a form of protest for the people of 39th district! This will assure you'ns that I am not taking money for influence!
  • I will go on all of the talk shows to discuss our political problems in this country and what we should do to address these issues.
  • I will have parties in the parks of the cities of the 39th district. We will have political rallies for all ages and people of any political belief. We will have karaoke, beer and a hog roast!
  • I will deal directly with Trump on these issues and we will win a lot for the people!
  • Together we will send Washington DC a loud message! Imagine a time when 5-10 other people across the country decide to join me and run for House or Senate!


Bills that I would submit!

  • Repeal the 1911 Apportionment Act. This law, which should have been an amendment, forces me to attempt to represent around 725,000 people instead of the 30,000-50,000 that our founding fathers had put in place.
  • I would put forth a bill to sell Amtrak to Carnival Cruises (or a similar company). That would save us almost half a billion per year.
  • I would put forth a bill to bring USPS delivery down to 3 days per week to make the post office profitable. Then we can discuss whether or not we really need a post office in this day and age (currently the USPS loses us a few billion dollars each year)
  • I would introduce a bill to remove the federal law against marijuana. I would further submit a bill that would allow all Americans in all of the 50 states to grow and smoke cannabis as our founding fathers did!
  • I would submit a bill that would place "viagra-like" pills on the shelf at our stores with no prescription and around $1 per pill!
