Welcome Friends and Fellow Citizens:
My campaign has created this website to inform voters about issues and developments pertinent to the 2018 mid-term elections, especially those in the Congressional primary here in the 18th District where we will select who will be on the ballot in the November General Election and in what direction we want the country to go.
I consider the matters of war and peace, management of the federal budget and taxes, and the integrity of the voting system, and all other civil rights, as the most important issues we face at this moment in history. Success in all of these areas depends on full disclosure of money in politics and open discussion of different viewpoints so that everyone can make informed decisions.
One benchmark or measuring stick for evaluating our ideas and performance is that of the oath of office, ‘to protect and defend the Constitution’, the aims of which are best expressed in The Preamble laid before the United States in Congress assembled on September 17, 1787:
We the People of the United States, in Order to
form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure
domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence,
promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings
of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and
establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
Much of what is going on in our government today is not in accord with these high ideals. We can do no better in any election than to have our discussions attend to whether our actions are in accord with this high calling. Hopefully the information at this site will help you in navigating your response to that challenge.
Very truly yours,
John Karl Fredrich
Candidate for Representative to Congress,
District # 18, California
