Robert Marquette on Government Reform

 

 


Give SCOTUS nominees an up-or-down vote

There has been a lot of political rhetoric out of Washington recently regarding Merrick Garland's nomination to the SCOTUS. Establishment republicans, like John Hoeven, have spent the last 5 years circumventing budget sequesters, blasting through spending caps, waging illegal wars and destroying our economy. Now that we are entering an election cycle, suddenly they play like they are concerned with preserving the rights of Americans and the Constitution.

I searched the web for Senator Hoeven's position on the subject, and as expected, I found nothing. Dead silence. Apparently the good Senator is hiding in a corner somewhere waiting for someone to give him permission to say something or tell him what to think.

While Senator Hoeven plays it safe, this partisan drama only fuels the political partisanship that divides the people. Enough of the games. Give Merrick Garland an up or down vote on the floor of the Senate.

Shed light on entrenched political corruption and cronyism

Marquette received the North Dakota Libertarian Party endorsement at its convention in November in Mandan. "If elected, I will fight for sound monetary policy, I will shed light on the corruption and cronyism of the entrenched political parties, and I will always work to drastically reduce government's influence in our lives," Marquette said in a press release.
