TOM WHITMIRE | U.S. Representative Candidate in Michigan’s 5th Congressional District

I AM TOM WHITMIRE & I AM RUNNING FOR CONGRESS on the REPUBLICAN Ticket. I’m running on a platform of Nutrition, Health, Agriculture and Education.
 
INVESTIGATE, NOT JUST LEGISLATE
The role of a congressman is not just to Legislate but also to Investigate. Let’s investigate our situation in Michigan’s 5th District and then let’s discuss solutions and alternative options to our findings.
 
In the course of gathering over 1000 signatures I conducted around 1000 small interviews of the people of the 5th District. Some interviewed me to see what I could do for them but I also interviewed them to see what the solutions are for our area. Throughout this website is the results of my ongoing investigation into Michigan’s 5th District.

HEALTHCARE SOLUTIONS for REVITAIVING MI's 5th by UTILIZING LOCAL FARMING, GROWHOUSES & INDUSTRIAL HEMP

LACK OF HEALTH & REAL HEALTHCARE
(TomWhitmire.com) The 5th District is ranked as one of the most unhealthy areas in the country with Genesee County ranked as the 2nd most unhealthy county in the state.

If we are going to start somewhere we need to start by addressing the health of the people of this district.

We start by education people on living a healthy lifestyle and
then we provide our people with solutions and options like locally grown agriculture and clean water.

There has become a giant disconnect in this area as to what is real food and real agriculture. After we get back to our historical roots you will see a rise in the 5th District’s health, job production, and a decline in crime.

Currently we are serving huge amounts of highly processed and prepackaged foods to our students in our educational institutions as well as to patients in our medical institutions and in our homes.

The kids in our schools are being fed a breakfast of pop-tarts and cola and then sent to school to learn. At school they are routinely fed nothing but prepackaged and highly processed foods.

PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX
Our children are starting their school days out with food and beverages packed full of chemicals. GMO’s, and other ingredients like aspartame, MSG, Gluten and highly processed sugars that are effecting they way the student thinks. When the student finds it hard to concentrate in the classroom often they are then diagnosed with a learning disability, given a drug and then told they will need this the rest of their lives.

People of all ages that may have only an allergy to their morning meal are led to believe there only solution is drugs. They no longer play the piano, or study math or pursue their dreams. Everyday people are losing their passion for life and they are falling through the cracks of society.

When a person eats highly nutritious foods, and drinks pure water their brain functions at a higher level. These vibrant people want to learn and they will seek out every opportunity to do so. Healthy educated people make fine citizens in a community and employers want to start businesses in areas with a viable work force.


HEALTHCARE COSTS on RISE
Because the people of The 5th District have had access to some of the best insurance programs in the world they have slowly allowed themselves to become one of the most unhealthy places in the country. People in this area believe it is easier to go to the doctor and to take a pill for a symptom then it is to live a healthy lifestyle and to prevent the symptom from developing. This is costing this area a lot of money.

Healthcare costs and programs are out of balance because people are not taking their health into there own hands anymore. People of this area are using the hospitals and emergency rooms like a local doctors visit for the simplest things. This is leading to extraordinary costs that are being passed down the line. In the past when you got an infection on the skin, grandma would look at it and tell you to put some Tea Tree oil on it. The next day it would be gone. Now a days we rush to the doctors. They don't know so we rush to the emergency. They do not know so they give you an antibiotic. By the time you go through the process the little skin infection has lead to a myriad of problems.

FDA & USDA
There is no true agency in Washington D.C. that represents the true Health & Nutritional needs of the people. Instead we have food industry giants creating standards and guidelines to regulate their own industry. What we have got is a system where decisions are based on money instead of the excellence of the people. The USDA just represents the interest of BIG MEAT, BIG DAIRY & BIG AGRICULTURAL INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX. The FDA is basically in bed with the Pharmaceutical Industrial Complex. What this leads to is policy being passed that protects the interest of these corporation by allowing them to hide their truths and to support laws that eliminate the competitions. We need to protect alternative solutions and options from special interest groups and lobbying by organizations that due not have the best interests of people’s Life, Liberty, & Property.

LOBBYISTS & SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS
Washington D.C. has become one giant swinging door. Politicians, representatives and policy makers leave their government positions and move right into positions with private companies that are directly related to decisions they have made in office. Then the door swings the other way and heads of major corporations move into government positions and influence policy to only benefit the corporation that they just left. We need to vote into Washington people who have the guts to vote for something because it is what their heart is telling them and not their wallets. A lobbyist or special interest group may be able to buy your ear but they should not buy your vote. They won’t buy my vote.

Let's start utilizing our resources here and let's stop relying on this invisible hand from above that is suppose to swoop in and save everything.
