"Non Sibi Sed Patriae."
(Not for self, for country.)
Unfortunately, most people are uninformed about their governments, their politicians, or both.
My opponent Debbie Wasserman-Schultz is a career politician. After her graduation from the University of Florida, she went to work for Florida Representative Peter Deutsch. She served on his staff for several years before she was elected as a Florida congresswoman. From college to the House of Representatives, what life experiences did she gain? What real jobs has she held, what has she been accountable and responsible for and what financial adversity has she had to face and overcome?
Does she have business experience? Does she have military experience? Does she have law enforcement experience? How has she been able to establish empathy with and understand the hardship faced by people and families every day or is she simply out of touch with life's trials and tribulations?
On the other hand, I am NOT a politician; however, here is why I am extremely well qualified to represent us in the U.S. House of Representatives. Additionally, I have had to overcome personal adversity twice which made me a better stronger person.
The navy motto is, "Non sibi sed patriae (Not for self, but for Country)". This is how I have lead my life and how I will continue to represent us in Congress. Can my opponent make this commitment? Does my opponent have my life experiences? Because if she did, would she have the empathy, the accountability, and the skills necessary to be a true leader?
I was honored to be selected to naval flight school and then privileged to be eligible for training in the highly sought after fighter pilot training. From the navy, I not only learned to be a team player and flew with the finest pilots in the World, but I was also taught leadership, management, diplomacy, delegation skills, and to be accountable for my actions. Honor, integrity, ethics and an intense love for my country was instilled in my fiber and defined me as a young naval officer.
As a deputy sheriff I was taught civil, criminal and Constitutional law. I had to defuse the most hostile situations in a calm rational manner. I often put myself in harm’s way without regard to my personal safety. I was diplomatic with people from all walks of life and treated everyone with dignity and respect. I also received a letter of accommodation.
As a senior manager with several Fortune 500 retail chains, I used my leadership, management and delegation skills. In addition, I learned high level negotiations as I would negotiate million dollar contracts, and how to create win-win scenarios. I was responsible for the creation of multimedia advertising campaigns and exercised a great deal of creativity in the performance of my job. As department head I had 25 associates, two advertising agencies and many other sub-contractors reporting to me in addition to administrating multi-million dollar budgets and was charged with the responsibility of keeping within my budgetary restraints.
For the last 25 years I have lead a highly successful real estate team. We have over 1800 sales for over 200 million dollars in sales volume. During the last 25 years I have operated my business with the honor, integrity and accountability I learned as a 21 year old naval officer and fighter pilot.
During the course of my life I have lost everything twice and had to start over. Without missing a beat, I learned from my mistakes and came back stronger, bigger and better than ever.
As YOUR Representative, I promise to put America first and to represent the will of the people. While I have to be elected by the voters in Florida District 23, at heart, I represent every one of the +/-320 million people in America. One of my primary objectives will be to set up a survey system to poll the people in order to know how the people want me to vote on key issues.

I love my country and it kills me to witness her destruction. We WERE the proudest and greatest nation on Earth. We were of the people, by the people and for the people, but we are no longer! We must restore her to prosperity and greatness. With your help, I'm committed to taking America back from those who seek to destroy her. I want to play an active role in America's aggressive restoration, and the best place on Earth to live. If you share my vision, I urge you to connect with me and help us make it happen! Together, we can take her back for the sake of our families and the generations of Americans yet to come.
