My name is Edward Wayne Kimbrough, and I am a retired employee of the United States Postal Service, where I worked as an Industrial Engineer and in several management positions at various locations for over 37 years.  I am also the owner of a home-based business, Aero Resources, Incorporated, which was incorporated in the State of Texas in January 1982.  The company specializes in the manufacture and sale of Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Certified nose cowl modifications for early model Mooney aircraft, which are manufactured in Kerrville, Texas.  The company also markets aircraft parts and modification kits for several other manufacturers in the aviation industry.

I am an instrument rated pilot, Mooney aircraft owner, Airframe/Powerplant Mechanic, and Designated Manufacturing Inspection Representative (DMIR) for the FAA.  I am a graduate of Knoxville College in Knoxville, Tennessee with a B.S. Degree in Mathematics and the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, Tennessee with a B.S. Degree in Industrial Engineering.  While employed with the Postal Service, I completed several advanced management training programs at the University of Texas in Austin, Texas and the William F. Bolger Center for Leadership Development in Potomac, Maryland.  My wife, Wanda, and I have been married for nineteen years and we have no children, except for a miniature Schnauzer by the name of Marino Dan Kimbrough.

We currently face a leadership crisis in America, because the founders of this nation designed our government to be a government of the people, by the people and for the people.  But instead, we have a government of the special interests, by the special interests, and for the special interests.  Most of our elected politicians appear to be controlled by an institutionalized system of bribery, where leaders are chosen based on the amount of money they can raise to discredit their opponents, rather than the ideas they have for the advancement and prosperity of the nation.  And legislation is passed, or not passed, based on the influence of power brokers and lobbyists who dominate the decision-making process, at the committee level where laws are written.  Most politicians appear to have more loyalty and allegiance to the political parties they belong to and the special interest groups that keep them in office, than the nation and the people they are elected to serve.   We need leaders who are accountable to the people.

In our government, the House, Senate, and White House currently work like the Three Stooges.  When the party of two of the Stooges is in power, the party of the third Stooge looks for ways to be heard by the other two Stooges, otherwise they seek to discredit and embarrass them.  Consequently, we have a stalemate and gridlock in Washington, which strangles the progress of the nation, because each party has its own agenda and there is no unity.  Instead, the House, Senate, and White House should work like the Three Musketeers, all for one and one for all.  They should follow Universal Principles that will allow them to work as one, like the Three Musketeers, for the well-being of the whole nation.  We the people need Universal Principles that will help us to identify and elect more Musketeers, and transform the Stooges into Musketeers, who are able to work in unity for the benefit of everyone.  We must be aware of what Scripture teaches us, “And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.  And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand” (Mark 3:24-25).  

We face a spiritual crisis in America, because we have abandoned many of the principles that this country was founded on.  The Declaration of Independence includes the following:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.  That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,”

It is evident from this document that the founders of this nation acknowledged God as the Creator of the universe.  Yet our government has since restricted the teaching of the Bible, the Word of God, in our public schools, because they have assumed it is a purely religious book and interferes with the separation of church and state.  Consequently, many of our children are taught that life on earth evolved from a single organism as a scientific fact, even though it has not been proven by scientific evidence.   The fact is, scientific discoveries continue to provide evidence that the universe was created at a specific point in time by intelligent design. 

We also face a social crisis in America, because in many cases we do not treat other people the way we want to be treated, and we do not treat the life of every human being as sacred.  This applies to relationships between police and the communities they serve, relationships within ethnic groups, relationships between the races, relationships between religious organizations, relationships between companies and other organizations, and relationships between nations.  We need to adhere to a set of Universal Principles that transcend all our differences and allow us to work together for the common good of everyone.  We need Universal Principles to deal with the proliferation of abortions by providing guidelines and support that will allow the stakeholders to make better decisions.  We need to establish systems that will allow citizens and law enforcement officials to work together to identify and resolve issues relating to illegal immigration, crime, and family problems.  We need Universal Principles to help fugitives from justice, drug dealers, drug abusers, gang members, prisoners, and corrupt government officials repair their lives and become law-abiding and more productive citizens.

For the past eight years I have been writing a book based on a scientific analysis of the Holy Bible, which is now in the process of being published. The express purpose of this book was to find Universal Principles which would promote peace, prosperity, and survival for all who follow them, no matter their race, gender, nationality, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, economic status, or political affiliation.  I was able to find the following Universal Principles:

  1. Support the traditional family and protect innocent children for our survival.
  2. Be good stewards of natural resources for the benefit of our posterity.
  3. Be good stewards of all living things for the preservation of the earth.
  4. Refrain from eating blood for our redemption.
  5. Treat other people the way we want to be treated, and treat the life of every human being as sacred for social harmony.
  6. Remember the Sabbath Day by being a good steward of our physical body and mind.
  7. Recognize and acknowledge when we have been proven to be wrong for our conviction.
  8. Confess when we are wrong to be the recipient of God’s grace.
  9. Repent of our wrongdoing for spiritual cleansing.
  10. Ask God, if there is belief in God, and those we have wronged for forgiveness, and forgive those who have treated us wrong to ensure God’s forgiveness.

The first five principles deal with our relationship toward our fellow human beings and the earth.  The second five principles deal with our relationship toward self.  These Universal Principles and the research data from the book will be utilized to propose specific solutions to the problems we now face in our nation.

I am running for the office of United States Senator from the State of Texas, because I have been concerned for many years about the above crises.  But, instead of continually complaining about them, I have decided to run for office and try to do something about them.  If elected, my goals are to:

  1. Eliminate the Gridlock between the Political Parties in Washington
  2. Return the Power of Government to the People
  3. Provide Full Employment for All Eligible American Citizens

The Universal Principles listed above will be utilized to address three of the most significant problems that are impeding the achievement of these three goals: 

  1. Unity                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             
  2. Accountability  
  3. Economic Growth 

For people to work together toward the welfare of all, there must be Universal Principles that transcend the petty differences between people and allow them to work together to achieve unity in all aspects of life, which include:

  1. Unity at the national level between the executive, legislative, and judicial branches of government.
  2. Unity between the political parties such that the general welfare and common good of the people and the nation come before party politics.
  3. Unity between federal, state, and local governments.
  4. Unity between law enforcement officials and the communities they serve.
  5. Unity between labor and management.
  6. Unity between different races and groups of people.
  7. Unity between parents and teachers.
  8. Unity within the family, the building block of every society.

For our government to serve the general welfare and common good of the people, our elected officials must become accountable to all the people they have been elected to serve.  To achieve accountability to all the people, there must be Universal Principles that transcend party politics and allow elected officials to generate programs that serve the whole nation, which include:

  1. Accountability in our monetary system such that our money supply is backed by tangible federal assets and capital owned by the people (solid rocks), rather than the credit worthiness of the Federal Government (shifting sand).
  2. Accountability in our banking systems such that the U.S. Federal Reserve System is brought under the control of the U.S. Congress and the U.S. Department of the Treasury, rather than the national banks.
  3. Accountability in our monetary policy decisions such that they are made through joint committees of the Congress, the Federal Reserve Banks, and the 13 industrial sectors, based on each sector’s ability to absorb growth without inflating the national economy.
  4. Accountability in our elected officials such that they are accountable to the people and the nation, rather than the special interest groups that keep them in office.
  5. Accountability in our national electoral process such that every vote in every state has a direct impact on the outcome of every election (one person, one vote).
  6. Accountability in our presidential electoral process such that the outcome of the presidential election is determined by the votes of the people and not by the votes of the Electoral College (Disband the Electoral College).
  7. Accountability in the levying of federal taxes such that every individual and every industry is treated fairly and equitably in the taxation process.
  8. Accountability in our national budgetary process such that zero-based, balanced budgeting is used to determine the needs of every federal department and agency, which will enable the federal accounting system to generate the same financial reports to the people as the business community.
  9. Accountability in the management of federal assets. 

I believe the Universal Principles can be used to motivate Congress to work with the executive branch to establish strategic plans that address current problems and ensure the long-term economic growth, security and leadership of America in the world community. 

The primary functions of human government are to protect its citizens; provide laws, statutes, and regulations that promote the general welfare and common good of its citizens; and to punish those citizens who violate those laws, statutes, and regulations.  However, the punishment of every citizen should be based on due process and the citizen’s behavior toward their fellow human beings, and not based on the citizen’s physical or social identity

I am confident this plan will return the power of government to “we the people,” but for this plan to have any possibility of being implemented, “we the people” must get more involved in the electoral process.  I need your help to overcome the massive senatorial contributions that the “ten-percenters” are making to keep the “ninety-percenters” in financial bondage.  In the 2015-2016 campaign season, the average contributions to each U.S. Senator, including those who were not running for office, was over $7.4 million dollars.  I believe I can win this election with a small fraction of this amount if all of you, who are concerned about the direction of our country, will contribute to my campaign and help me deliver this plan to the people of Texas.  The people of Texas can lead the fight to take back our country from the power brokers and special interest groups.
