My name is Steve "FRED" Abrams and I am seeking the seat of US Representative District 14 in the
Great State of
Georgia!

The TOP FIVE Issues:

North Korea

The North Koreans have made it abundantly clear that they would love to talk peace if we would stop
threatening them. The US and it's allies in the region have been running offensive drills off the North
Korean coast for several years. If that were attempted by anyone off our coast it would be seen as a
provocative act, but we continue to prod the North Koreans. The Kim regime has seen what the neo-cons
did with regime change in Afghanistan, then Iraq, then Libya and then the unsuccessful attempt in Syria.
The country that wasn't invaded, despite all the bluster, was Iran, who retained their nukes.

The regime of Kim wants most what we all want, to survive. For that same reason the thought of North
Korea sending any of those nukes our way, overlooking for a moment the question of ability, borders on
insanity. The leaders know that there would be an immediate and overwhelming response, eliminating
them and most of everything else in their world. If their goal was suicide there are easier ways. Let's start
out by saying we will not invade them, and then begin talking. What we've done in the past isn't working.
It's time we tried something different.

Domestic Policy

The policy of benign neglect that has defined government attitudes towards our home nation is nothing
less than criminal. While sending billions abroad in aid and showering largesse on the military,
government has allowed the infrastructure of the nation, once the envy of the world,  to rot away to
crumbling ruin. The state of our highways, bridges and public places, all the responsibility of government,
is atrocious and puts tens of thousands at risk every day. Poor transportation options add time and cost
to products and lives whether it is rail, road or shipping.  But the short-changing of the people is a time
honored tradition in modern America.

The People, from whom all power derives, have been forced to subsidize the greed of the most fortunate
among us. While those who have the least underwrite those who have the most, they are told that their
poverty is their own fault; the end result of laziness, poor education and a weak connection to work. The
poor are not lazy. They have to work harder to receive less every single day if they want to eat.

These people at the low end of the scale used to be called the working class before the jobs were
shipped across the border. The working class was the pillar of America and with their earnings made it
into the consumer powerhouse that lifted the whole doggoned world out of poverty and into the prosperity
many countries now know. But now the good jobs are gone, there is no more money to power the
consumer lifestyle. People are focused on paying the rent and putting food on the table. These days that
often takes balancing two (or more) job schedules. For their effort they are told through the popular press
that their poverty is due to the weakness of their character. Makes me so mad I could spit. The country
needs work, the people need work (not handouts). Seems simple enough, let's invest in ourselves.

Foreign Policy

Since the end of World War Two the United States has been the policeman who sustained an uneasy
truce around the world. At the end of the war there were good reasons for this. Most of the industrialized
world had been bombed to rubble while the factories and mills in America were untouched.  We picked up
the reins of leadership because we could and we were needed. That was seventy-three years ago.

Without commenting on the arrogance that has characterized US foreign policy for the last several
decades it is time to recognize that the kids have grown up. Every parent reaches this point. For too long
the parent is the protector, the authority, the final word. Eventually though the youth reaches for maturity.
The parent can manage it well and create a new relationship built on the foundation of the last,
transitioning from the boss to the trusted advisor. Manage it poorly and the relationship is shattered, with
the parent and the youth going off in different directions.

We, as a nation, can manage the new maturity of nations with grace and humility If we do we could retain
some semblance of our former glory. Or we can manage it badly and find ourselves thrust aside and
crushed by those we have disrespected.

The Wall / Immigration

The United States is a nation of immigrants. My own grandparents were immigrants who would often
speak of their experience coming through New York's Ellis Island. That was in the late nineteenth century.
The west was still mostly open land and a burgeoning industrial revolution needed a constant supply of
labor to run the machines and populate the land. Jump ahead a little over a hundred years.

With the flight of industry to low wage locales most of the remaining jobs are tied to the service industry.
What manufacturing does still exist is heavily automated, requiring far fewer hands than the factories of
yesterday. Those who say we need new workers to support Social Security have overlooked the fact that
there are currently over forty million people put out of work by the collapse of American manufacturing.
Given jobs, they would surely be happy to support the government with their taxes, but those jobs are not
there. So why do we need to continue attracting unskilled labor into an already saturated market? The
only option left to survive is to join the welfare roles, straining an already broken system.

Why are we allowing immigrants to be on welfare at all? Fresh ideas and willingness to work hard have
always characterized the immigrant experience. My grandfather was proud to become an American,
recognizing that what they had left behind was much worse that what they had come to. Today's
immigrants face a multi-cultural America, with no clearly discernable model to assimilate to. As a result
they retain their old culture and language, dreaming of the day when they can return "home". The dollars
they earn are returned to their home country rather than being spent in American communities.
Times have changed. It is time to take a fresh look at the immigration question.

Corruption in the major banks and the Federal Reserve

The big five investment banks are out of control. Their business model is corrupt on it's face and they are
sucking the financial lifeblood from the system. Using the power of the Federal Reserve, they print free
money to buy everything in sight, pricing it out of the reach of those who only receive their money through
labor. Some form of Glass-Steagel should be put in place immediately, separating investment banks from
commercial banks. The next step is to nationalize the Federal Reserve, declare a debt holiday and put
those guilty of crimes in jail. Simple.
