Let’s go over some thought provoking opinions!
So far the “Not a Politician” Politician rookie has done a pretty good job at standing out on some important issues to the people of America. He is pro Gun Rights, Pro Life, Pro Environment and Pro Free Market. He wants accountable and safe business and banking procedures and less government.
Yet Mr. Akers doesn’t say anything of his opinions or views of welfare, Government Transparency, Cannabis or ending the Drug War. All of which are very important topics to the majority of Americans, and are major issues in the state of Washington. These are subjects I hope our candidate answers as his campaign continues.
At first glace, I would suggest that Mr. Akers has a strong campaign, though seeing several posts of him having interviews with FOX NEWS, it makes me a bit weary of the Successful Business man who wants to run for our 51st Senatorial Seat. Fox News is a Rupert Murdoch production and isn’t exactly known for it’s “fair and balanced” news views, especially with Glenn Beck leading the Fox parade. It makes me wonder if they asked him to go on air, or if he paid for the time to advertise his campaign on a channel that most voters don’t have a taste for anymore….
For the most part, Paul Akers appears to be a strong citizen, with no political experience, who is running to try and help get America back to the place it belongs in. There are many questions he has not answered yet, which tells me I should reserve my full perspective of him until they are answered, but I do like to see more “home grown” candidates.
For now, I will keep my eye out for updates about his campaign, his views and other candidates running in Washington State and other states. Keep in touch for updates!
