I am Delinda Delgado Morgan and I am running for Oregon's Congressional First District.
The stagnation of our economy and the ever-increasing intrusiveness of Government into our daily lives has become dire. I wish to be your Congressional Representative because I believe that the people of District One deserve a competent voice advocating for their right to govern themselves rather than imposing federal "solutions" for local issues. For too long our so-called leaders have repeatedly acted outside the scope and intent of the Constitution and in the process have burdened society with unsustainable levels of spending and debt with virtually no accountability. Our U.S. Constitution requires that regular accounting of receipts and expenditures of all public money shall be published. Why have we allowed Federal Government to continue without a budget? I will work to return local control over local issues to the people. I will insist that the Tenth Amendment be held sacred by the U.S. Government. I will push for the full repeal of President Obama's takeover of the U.S. health care industry and its demands placed upon us.
When elected as your representative in Congress, I will take an oath to uphold the Constitution. For me, this is more than a mere formality. By taking this oath I will consider it binding and sacred and I will view all legislation through the lens of the U.S. Constitution. Simply put, if it's not allowed for in the Constitution, my vote will be NO!
Those who established this "Great Nation" gave us a grand experiment in self governance that for over 225 years has proven to work. Oregon has a proud tradition of independence which, in recent years, has been eroding as we have become more and more dependent on Federal money to fund local governments. For too long, Congressional representatives have spent time, energy and resources working to increase Oregon's dependency on Federal dollars.
So let me be crystal clear: When you elect me as your Congressional Representative because I believe in the sovereignty of The People and our freedom from Federal Government overreach, I will work to help you keep more of your own treasure. I will fight for a lean Federal Government and will work to restore Oregon to it's proud traditions of rugged independence. I promise to act with integrity and courage as I work to rein in an out of control Federal Government that is strangling our economy with oppressive regulations and stifling the entrepreneurial spirit of small business that is best equipped to bring us out of this recession. I believe that The People, and not the politicians, have the best understanding of what is needed to turn this economy around and I will work to get Government out of the way so that you, the individuals, who make our nation great can again show the world what free people can accomplish.
I am humbled by the opportunity to ask for your vote and I invite you to join me as together we work to restore the greatness of our District, our State and our Nation.
