Our Campaign Platforms
We need a complete overhaul of the education system in America. Our primary K-12 education system needs to be focused to the success of our young people. This cannot happen fully at the federal level; we need to give the main control back to the states. They are the ones that are in the day to day and can make the quick necessary changes that take the federal government years to see.
Healthcare in the United States is broken. We are trapped in the middle as two sides continue to fight about radically different ideologies of what our healthcare should be without taking a step back to see the fallacies in their own plans. On the left we have a cry for Socialized medicine, on the right we hear nothing but Free Markets. Both have their issues and problems.
The number one threat to the United States and our way of life is our out of control spending and debt. In October of 2019, we as a nation just passed 23 trillion dollars in national debt. We also have 100 – 150 trillion in-unfunded liabilities.
For years now I have been watching the divide in our country grow larger and larger. I have watched friends, neighbors, and family even refuse to speak to each other over political differences. Why are we allowing our Representatives thousands of miles away to negatively impact our friendships, our relationships, and family dynamics because they refuse to work for us?
That’s right! Congress is supposed to be working for us. Our current elected officials have been brilliant at dividing us to the point that we no longer remember that we are the ones that they are supposed to serve. They have changed our government from “by the people and for the people” to “for the party and by the party”. Both parties are two sides of the same coin. They seem to be focused on what is best for them and their party and appear to care less about the average American. This points to a key reason why I am running for Congress.
Alex Johnson is a 32-year-old Loveland area native. My wife Mary and I have two children, my 19-year-old stepson Andrew and our 8-year-old daughter Maggie. We have a 2-year-old puppy named Charlie and a fish named Fin, and now live in Berthoud. I am a mortgage loan officer and my wife is a hairdresser. We are the quintessential American family, living and enjoying our small piece of the American dream.
