You and I Have a Job to Do... Will You Stand With Me?

Dear Friends:

Hello everyone and thank you for visiting my website. I trust this letter finds you well. If you are visiting this site, you were either searching for a true fiscal and social conservative, or possibly you were referred to it by a friend, family member, or colleague who is as excited as I am, as we are attempting to get the word out; that I am in need of your help. I am preparing to run for the U.S. Congress in 2012, the 7th Congressional District of New Jersey for the House of Representatives to be exact. This is a Federal position in which my decisions will not only represent the N.J. 7th, but also transfer its consequences to the entire United States, so inevitably, it affects you. So, I need your help that I may serve and help you, and together we can save America.

I am personally penning this letter and ask this question of you; Are you better off than you were 2 years ago? How about 4 years ago? I believe that you have come to the same conclusion I have, and the answer is a resounding NO!  You have now come to realize that the Federal Government is out of control and that you, like I am fed up. Through much thought, prayer and research, along with family discussions, I desire to again offer myself as a “Citizen Statesman” and concurrently establish a campaign based on true conservative principals, values and beliefs. To represent a true “Voice for the People…Your Voice!”

It is quite evident to me and I believe to you also, that our elected officials are not listening to the majority of their constituents.

For over two years we listened in disbelief as American Citizens were compared to “Astro-turf, Nazi’s, Domestic Terrorists,” and “Uneducated Buffoons.” Many members of Congress have awakened us to realize the contempt and disregard they have for the American Tax Payer. Recently some Congressional members have even instructed law abiding tax paying citizens to go to He_ _! In their own eyes, they consider themselves to be intellectual social engineers knowing what is best for the ignorant and naïve citizenry. They regard themselves to be the mature and wise parental figures, needing to educate, direct and if necessary, force the adolescent John and Jane Citizen into what they deem relevant to the benefit of the whole.

I believe change is imminent and necessary; but in which direction? I ask you! Are you going to allow its current course to continue?

I believe America has come to a precipice, a tipping point if you will, in which you and I, the citizens of this great country must come to the realization that this is not the change many voted for. As I pondered and attempted to understand the country’s misguided direction, a phrase resonated in my mind, “Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their Country”. Our nation is unique among the nations of the world in that it was founded not by a certain race or ethnic group but rather on a fundamental set of ideals. We must protect these ideals, as they make up the very core of which we are our identity as a nation.

I can no longer stand by and observe entrenched career politicians who are not properly representing you or your family, by making decisions which benefit themselves and their parties. Who willfully plunge each tax paying American, along with their children and grandchildren, into unsustainable debt?

Most of our Representatives seem to have had a lobotomy of all common sense and have willingly given up on character, integrity and self control in lieu of a progressive all inclusive world view, in which truth is not at all stable, but is a “moving target,” adjusted to fit the perceived beliefs and desires of the day. It is as if our foundations are supported on “shifting sands,” with each controversy shifting laws and interpretations, from legal to illegal, from unconstitutional to constitutional and vice-versa.

As a result of their willingness to disregard absolute truth and common sense, our elected officials have lost the trust, confidence, and respect of the American people, as reflected in all the recent polling data revealing that Americans faith in Congress is at an historic low. What I am noticing are doors being opened for uncertainty and distrust, which allows entrance of a plethora of undesirable consequences, which seek to expand and take root into hair line fractures. Eventually, these fractures increase exponentially in size, weakening the foundations which have been painstakingly laid. I do not believe this is in the best interests of the American people.

Liberals are desperate to transform America into another Europe where the elite rule and the common class, you and I, have forced dependency upon them to make decisions regarding where and how we live, what we can drive and what freedoms we will have.

You and I Have a Job to Do……Will You Stand With Me? 

Help make this a successful campaign by investing your financial support: if you are able, please send the maximum allowed by law- $2,500 over 18 years of age or $5,000 per couple. Your gift of just $35, $50, or $100 will show a strong support for freedom and help return Congress back to the “Voice of the People…. Your Voice”….But any gift would mean the world to mePlease send it today.

I am sure many of you are wondering, why in the world is he doing this again? I am concerned for this country and concerned for the direction our elected officials are leading us. I realize every candidate campaigns on the platform of some sort of change, but this change I am speaking of is not just the type of legislation and policies we put into place, but an actual change in the minds, hearts and actions of our elected officials. We have strayed so far from the beliefs, moral integrity, principals and character of our founding fathers, along with the true knowledge of why and how this Great Nation was established and the reasons for our many great blessings. Along with abandoning our trust in Divine Providence.

I intend to bring the forgotten concept called “Statesmanship” back into existence.

Currently, our public officials call themselves Politicians. When I hear this name I cringe. It seems to be used these days in a derogatory sense, not complimentary at all. According to Webster, Politician means: using artifice [skill, ingenuity, trickery, craft, artful device]. I compare them to a snake oil salesman, and I must apologize to the snake oil salesman.

Whereas a Statesman according to Webster is distinguished as able, far seeking, principled conduct of State/people’s affairs, installing the people’s/public’s interest first, above self and party, also applying credit where credit is due, regardless of who or which party presented the idea. The concept of Statesmanship truly attempts to restore bipartisanship instead of the unproductive partisanship. Henry Kissinger said: “90% of the politicians give the other 10% a bad reputation”. How true!

President Obama is ripping up the Constitution by bypassing Congress and forcing his far left agenda through unelected bureaucrats who are destroying more jobs, hopes and dreams, while the present Congress just stands idly by and watch.   

I have never held public office, being an entrepreneur for over 35 years; my perspective is as a true citizen statesman without ties or obligations to anyone, allowing me to legislate freely for the best interests of the 7th District and the American people according to the true spirit and letter of the U.S. Constitution.

As a successful businessman who labored long hours and did not inherit a dime, I understand that priority one is putting America’s financial house in order and getting Americans back to work. The formula to invigorate this stagnant economy and allow the private sector to create jobs is to remove government intervention and let the free enterprise system work.

Now Is Not the Time for Politics as Usual

I have a strong desire to serve. I have come to a time in my life when I am able to apply myself to the service of others; with real true service, not concerned with my so called “Political Career”, status or what others may think of me. Throughout my life I have been a loyal employee, and later, a trusted employer. I have strongly supported those in business through my work ethic and also enjoyed the freedom given to me in our country to establish new business ventures. I have experienced first-hand the ideals of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness given to me and my family here in America. Today, as I listen to the radio, watch T.V. and read the papers, my heart goes out to the many people who are being taken advantage of through our own governmental systems. Through burdensome over taxation, regulations, enormous government, debt and politics as usual.

Our present Governmental Representatives reward what is wrong and punish what is right!…We must put an end to this now!

Hard working American citizens are frustrated and disgusted, but they do not have the luxury of taking time off their jobs and responsibilities elsewhere in order to get involved to complete the long process of change. They feel helpless and abandoned, with the attitude “You cannot fight City Hall.” Their voices remain unheard and unheeded, and their willingness to help is squelched before even beginning-this is why I desire to be that “Voice”.

Some of you are thinking, well someone else will do something or it will fix itself, I do not need to get involved or financially support anyone. You are right, and this is what troubles me, someone else will do something! When there is a potential for a vacuum to be created, someone will fill the void. Remember, we want the vacuum filled with the right person at the right time…NOW!

In 2010 Americans threw some of the so called  “RINO’S” and “Bum’s” out, now lets finish the job in 2012!…This is why I am asking for your support to go to Washington and to serve as your Voice.

Career Politicians Must be Defeated if America is to Survive                                      

You and I Can Not Afford to Rest While the Present Fate of our Great Nation and Our Posterity Hangs in the Balance

Please, I implore you to fight that desire to remain sedentary and sit idly by on the sidelines. That is exactly what the Obama and the Status Quo are counting on you to do. But through your financial support, volunteerism, along with you speaking to all your family, friends, neighbors, and colleagues about our campaign, you can elect a citizen statesman and proudly display the Conservative Republican Standard to victory.

Will You Stand With Me?

I need your help, your prayers and your dollars today. 

Whether you can send just $35 or much, much more, please send it today.

I sincerely thank you in advance for your support. God Bless you, your family, and May God continue to Bless America. Our best days and years can yet still be ahead!


Warmest Regards:

David Larsen

Exp. Candidate for U.S. Congress [NJ-7]
