3-31 Never Trust Government, American Style

Audio Transcript:

I am Dr. Peter Theron.
I am running for Congress to solve problems and restore civility.

During a crisis, we learn how well our government works.

The 2008 financial crisis allowed the previous administration to railroad Obamacare into law. The Speaker of the House stated “we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what’s in it”. They passed it and we suffer it.

During the H1N1 pandemic, 1,000 people died before the previous administration declared a public-health emergency. That Administration drew down our N95 mask stockpile and failed to authorize the shovel-ready job of replenishment. Now, our doctors and nurses suffer.

Last week, during this pandemic, the Speaker stopped American relief for 5 days demanding hundreds of millions of dollars in pork.

Our member of Congress always supports the Speaker and votes as she directs. I won’t.

As we solve problems together, civility will return. Please stay safe.

3-23 China Lied; People Died

This year we are learning hard lessons about government-run health care.
The 2002 SARS epidemic began in China’s exotic-animal slaughter-markets. Although China promised to close these wet markets, it never did. So, in 2019 that’s where the Chinese CoronaVirus pandemic started. Then China hid the truth and spread falsehoods.

China lied; people died.

This pandemic has revealed that government-run health care is risky, inefficient, and unaccountable. We deserve patient-centered medicine, where doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals put patients first.

Medicare-for-all would be government-run health care.
Our member of Congress supports it. I do not.

As we solve problems together, civility will return. Work with me.

What happened to civility?

Civility is restraint, tolerance, and orderliness.
Religion, culture, philosophies, institutions, the Constitution, and laws guide civility.

Politicians are squabbling children. The media’s misleading headlines, shallow reporting, and politicized coverage have failed us.

It’s only citizens that can restore civility to public life. That’s why I’m running.

By tolerating each other and our differences, by working together, by getting to know each other, and by insisting on civil harmony, we will reduce rancor.

When Americans are confronted with a life-threatening crisis, such as the Wuhan Flu pandemic, we unite to overcome it.

As we solve problems together, civility will return. Work with me. Please!

3-10 Wuhan Flu

Coronavirus COVID-19 is now world-wide. Some countries like China and Iran have had many fatalities.

Initially, the Chinese suppressed warnings. They did not act soon enough.

By contrast, the Trump administration quickly declared a public-health emergency. Flight suspensions and quarantines slowed the virus, lowering its infection peak. Infection peaks must stay below our health-care capacity.

Our interconnected world requires we quickly respond to pandemics and drug-resistant pathogens. Congress should form a Joint Committee on Medical Threats to learn from the past and prepare for the future.

Ebola and coronavirus are warnings. The next Congress must act.

As we solve problems together, civility will return. Join me.

3-3 Introduction

People worry that impeachment, other partisan politics, and name-calling have frayed our civil society, allowing our underlying problems to fester. I believe, if we work together to solve real problems, our country will begin to heal.

I live in Madison and teach mathematics, and statistics.
I am married to a wonderful woman, who luckily likes math too.

My BA in statistics comes from Princeton University and my PhD in Mathematics from UW here in Madison. And, I love Wisconsin!

In the last 4 years our economy has boomed raising incomes especially among our poorest. Iran is weakened, ISIS is defeated, our military is strong again, and much more. Our President has done a great job.

However on Capitol Hill, Congress isn’t pulling its weight.
I want to change that.

As we solve problems together, civility will return. Join me.
