New 11th CD candidate
“A regular person holding an office becomes a politician when trying to be re-elected.”- Brian Kelly
Brian Kelly is a retired IBM executive and assistant professor at Marywood University in Scranton. He will not accept campaign donations and vows to serve only one term if elected. If he actually gets on the ballot it is good news for Congressman Kanjorski because the anti-Kanjo voters will have another choice other than Corey O'Brien. The Machiavelli in me has been expecting another Scranton area Democrat to get into the race.
He has a website
Brian Kelly for Congress
Reading his Patform Bullets he takes some interesting postions for someone calling himself a Democrat, to put it mildly. He says he has been influenced by the writings of Allan Keyes saying that they think alike.
Some of his positions:
Abortion is "prohibited" in Declaration of Independence
Public display of the Ten Commandments is a state’s right.
Official Language of US is English.
Marriage is between a man and a woman.
This is a Christian Nation.. Prayers to Christ should not be barred.
Schools forfeit funds if they expose kids to gay propaganda / pornography.
Sex education if it exists at all, should be abstinence-based
Eliminate Department of Education
Drill here, Drill now
Global Warming is a hoax
CAFE standards kill people in crashes - abolish them
Recognize the UN as an anti-US agency
Repeal all aspects of Obamacare including the "Porkulus" bureaucracy
Seal the borders of the United States
No U.S. citizenship for “anchor babies” of non-citizens
Repeal the Sixteenth Amendment
Abolish the income tax and IRS and spend money responsibly
Constitution does not require separation of church and state
TL: 11th needs non-politico, Kelly says
