I’m running for Congress to preserve our country
Politics is dirty business. Because of this, good people often stay on the sidelines – not fully engaging the system, oftentimes, waiting for someone else to fix it. As such, a vacuum has been created in our society that is being filled by some of the most foolish policies that do nothing to secure our borders, lower our taxes, get us out of endless wars, gives us jobs, or create a culture that nurtures up the next generation. Edmund Burke once said, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men [and women] do nothing.”
I am running for Congress because I believe it’s time for “good” people to once more fill this void.
Get to know Kathy Barnette
My life’s journey represents all that is good about this country. I grew up on a pig farm in southern Alabama in a one stop-sign town in a restful and rustic corner of the world. I never knew just how impoverished we were until I grew up. When my grandmother would ask me to help her in the garden, I thought she just wanted to spend quality time with me. I never knew it was for our survival. If we ever wanted greens or beans on our plate, it had to come from the effort of our own two hands.
In addition to being raised as what many would consider “disadvantaged,” I’ll add one more stumbling block to success: I’m the by-product of a rape.
Yet despite my beginnings, I was the first in my family to complete college. I spent ten years in the Armed Forces Reserves, where I was accepted into Officer Candidate School. I’ve worked in the financial industry, corporate America, and as an adjunct professor of Corporate Finance. For over four years, I have been a regular featured guest on Fox News. I am the recent author of the book Nothing to Lose, Everything to Gain: Being Black and Conservative in America. And now, I am running for Congress.
My story only takes place in America. I am not standing outside waiting for someone to admit me into the American Dream. I AM THE AMERICAN DREAM.
Though the details of my life’s story may vary somewhat from your story, my challenges closely resemble many who live in Montgomery County. We have faced formidable odds and we have challenges yet to overcome, but with determination and a clear focus, we have opportunities to overcome them.
Kathy is honored to have spent a decade serving our great country in the Army reserves and was accepted into Officer Candidate School.
Kathy is not only a public advocate, but she advocates for her own family. Perhaps her most cherished opportunity, to date, besides being a wife, is the ability to homeschool her two children. They just completed their sixth year.
Kathy is a regularly featured political commentator on news programs, including the #1 cable news show Fox & Friends
Kathy Barnette’s first book “Nothing to Lose, Everything to Gain: Being Black and Conservative in America” explains why liberal policies have failed the black community time and time again – and will fail the larger American community as Democrats rush to the hard Left of the party.
Former, Adjunct Professor
Kathy taught as an Adjunct Professor of Corporate Finance.
Every American has the right to protect themselves, their families and their property. I believe the 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution guarantees the fundamental individual right to keep and bear arms for all law-abiding Americans. It specifically calls on the government to NOT infringe on this right.
I do not believe taxpayer dollars should be used to fund abortions. Abortion is NOT health care. It ends a life.
Tough on China
The Chinese Mask has fallen off. Their “true” face has been revealed.
The question is whether we have political leaders who will put American values above greed and HOLD CHINA ACCOUNTABLE?
I believe that every American should be able to choose the health insurance that meets their needs rather than the government telling us what we need to buy. Health insurance should be affordable with lots of options.
Do not abolish the Suburbs
I believe that the unique and diverse character of our communities should be maintained and that any changes be determined by the citizens who live there. When I get to Congress, I will listen to my constituents and work closely with local elected officials to get our Federal money into the communities where they want them to go.
In order for a society to be successful its citizens must feel safe. It is beyond disturbing that so many Democratic politicians, including my opponent, Madeleine Dean, have intentionally confused “peaceful protestors” with “rioters” and “anarchists.” There is no justification for the destruction we are witnessing all across our nation. No one is above the law.
Centers for Infectious Disease Outbreaks
During this pandemic we have learned a great deal about the virus including recognizing our shortcomings in being prepared. We must always strive to do better so that we can be as safe as possible and save lives whether it is the current Corona Virus or a future similar illness. That is why I have proposed the Centers for Infectious Disease Outbreaks.
Pro School Choice
I support the ability of parents to choose the best type of education for their children. While public education should have the funding and support necessary and need reform to allow learning to improve, alternatives need to be available. They include special learning, charter schools, trade schools, scholarship opportunities for private education, and home schooling.
American Energy Independence
I believe that all types of energy should be available and support efforts to improve effectiveness and safety through American technology, innovation and ability to adapt quickly.
Minority Inclusion Act
While the 1863 Emancipation Proclamation gave more than 3 million black people freedom, the passage of the Civil Rights Act in 1964 put us on the path to equality. For many in America, that path towards equality has not always been a smooth one. It has been burdened by a lack of adequate access, charged with erratic acts of racism, and troubled with limited partnerships and opaque policies.
