Links are only provided where we have information. The first link is a report of all issues and questions made available to the candidates.
General: (political statement of goals, objectives, views, philosophies)
I am a candidate, because it is time to change a "No" voice in Washington to a "Yes" voice that is of the people, for the people and by the people and not that of the 1(one) percent who do not want to pay their fair share!

I say to you, if you join with me we will make a change in business as usual! We will make a change in how big government does business! Together with your support and the driving force of your voice we will balance the budget, control our spending and not do it on the backs of the working poor or the middle class of Alabamians and Americans.

This campaign is about a renewed America. An America that protects it's old and it's young; an America that puts every able bodied person to work, who wants to work. Our campaign is about an America who invests in educating her people, and encourages its citizens to rise from just getting along to soaring as high as the eagle that represents this nation.

This campaign is about brotherly love. It is time we become that nation under God indivisible with liberty and justice for all. We must love our neighbors, not slander them, lift them up, and not put them down! This new mean spirit in our nation must end. For it is together we stand but divided we will fall!

Electing John Harris will start a change in the climate in Washington; it will send a fresh new set of innovative ideas that are not bound by signing some agreement that will place America in a 3rd world status! We must live up to our call, stand on our principles and hold fast to our belief; that no nation will lead America!
