Why are you running for office?
Our nation must return to Godly principles and I want to be a Washington lawmaker
pointing the Senate to this end. Greed and corruption and the murder of unborn
babies continue to separate us from God and His blessings. Lawmakers in Washington must begin
aggressively taking a stand. Until we do, God cannot bless or heal our nation.
(2 Chronicles 7:14.) Before I complete any political survey I interject the
following disclaimer: “I believe it is extremely important to impart to you and
to your readers, my campaign disclaimer. Our nation and our great Commonwealth of Kentucky cannot be all that they are
called to be until we invite God back into the political process. Politicians
can offer sound solutions to any issue our country is faced with. However,
sound ideas alone do not, a great country make. It is time our country makes a
U-turn back to God before we find ourselves in the same circumstances. We must
approach every national and state issue through these lenses.” I want to restore Godly principles to our nation’s political
What qualifications for this
particular office do you bring to the table?
I possess a life time of government and business experience and
training as indicated by my professional vitae. http://www.jstephenson.com/ No other
candidate has federal, state and local government experience. I have
owned my own companies.
I am not soliciting funds; not even from
the labor unions, which have endorsed my candidacy. I will not be “owned” by
any special interests groups. I am an advanced government teacher and I
fully understand the dynamics and function of every branch of government. I have visited all 120 Kentucky counties more then five times. I
have filmed the history of each county and I am very familiar with the
strengths of our Commonwealth. Before health care became a major issue, I
produced a weekly program called “Your Health and Wellness” which the Medical
Association still continues. I have done this without grants or tax revenue. I
possess effective and persuasive speaking abilities, making me extremely
qualified for the U.S. Senate. God has prepared me for this job. I am a voice
for the poor, A.D.A., laborers, and human rights. I love people and I consider
it an honor to be a public servant.
If elected, what will be your
area/s of focus be?
My first effort would be to introduce legislation for
a Human Rights to Life Amendment. I also believe that the government
should participate in coal research as part of a bigger picture in a jobs bill
such as we saw in the 1940’s with the Workers Progress Administration Program. America must
consider a plan that resembles the New Deal that was created in 1939 under
President F.D. R.’s Administration. We need a program that will retrofit
private enterprise companies, create jobs and stimulate the private sector.
Money and time management are commodities that must be harnessed. President
Franklin D. Roosevelt taught us, “That we have nothing to fear but fear itself.” It is time to put our egos, our pride and personal
agendas aside. Federal, state and local lawmakers must remove blinders and
begin looking at what can work, even if it is a program that is like the WPA,
which was instituted by presidential executive order, under the Emergency
Relief Appropriation Act of April 1935, to generate public jobs for the
