End of the Line

It is with great regret that I must announce that I must end my campaign to run for U.S. Congress in Washington.

Some family issues have come up quite recently that will not allow me to put in the necessary time and energy that would be required to run for political office.

Perhaps in the future I can attempt another run at it but for now, it is time I step aside and hope that some other conservative will step in and fight the good fight in my place.

Thank you… Continue

Why I Should Represent You

My name is Steve Long and I am running for U.S. House of Representatives for the Washington's 1st Congressional District.

Why should I represent you?

I should represent you because I represent traditional conservative values and I believe that, like me, you are sick and tired of the antics of a Congress that seeks to make government bigger and spend more of our money.

I should represent you because I uphold the idea that bigger government is not better… Continue

Wasteful Spending

The so-called "Cash for Clunkers" program that has recently been allocated another $2 billion is one of the most wasteful government programs in recent memory.

First, the government is giving away $4500 on vehicles are worth far below that amount, sometimes thousands of dollars less. I am not sure if any of the people that came up with this idea learned anything about basic economics but if they did, they must have forgotten a large portion of it.

On top of that, the… Continue

Conservative Declaration

Our country is in danger.

This very country that our forefathers fought and bled and died so bravely for has come under attack.

It has come under attack by politicians that feel that they know what is better for us than we do.

They believe that by taking over our God-given freedoms, they will make life easier for us.

Well they are dead wrong.

Never before in history has there been a time such as these times where we must not be… Continue

Thoughts on Immigration

There should be no debate on this. Illegal immigration is wrong! That is why it is illegal. There is process to go through by which a person can become an

American citizen. It is not that hard a process. It merely takes the drive and

ambition of wanting to become a citizen of the greatest country on earth.

But there are millions of people every year that are allowed to sneak into our

country. These people are allowed to take our jobs and further put a further drain on… Continue

Pro-Life. No Apologies.

My thoughts on this extremely controversial issue are very simple.

I am pro-life.

How devoted to pro-life issues am I? I particpated in a prayer vigil for the 2009 40 Days to Life campaign.

An unborn child is a living human being and I believe in a constitutional amendment that legally defines an unborn baby as such at the moment of conception and gives an unborn child all the rights of an ordinary American citizen.

I am opposed to embryonic stem-cell… Continue

Let's Talk Health Care

I would like to talk to you a bit about health care reform.

The current administration would like you to believe that the current health care system in our country is in a state of some sort of national crisis. They want you to believe this because they want to get their government controlled health care plan passed in Congress as quickly as possible.

They use statistics like 45 million uninsured and talk about the rising cost of health care so that they can scare you into… Continue

Opening Statements

Congress has failed us all. It has lost its focus. It is no longer government of the people by the people or for the people.

What was once a noble institution consisting of men of honor has turned into little more than a country club made up of liars and thieves.

Our nation is currently on a path of bigger and bigger bureaucracy that will only lead to one thing, government control of every facet of your life.

Is that something that you want?

Do you… Continue
