Hi, I’m Scott Schluter. First and foremost, I’m a daddy to an amazing 4 year old little girl. Being a father has made me a better person. I am a diesel mechanic by trade, but freedom is my passion. I grew up on a hog farm and spent most of my childhood growing one kind of crop or another. I’m a USAF veteran of six years. My time in the Air Force has given me a passion for political activism. When I enlisted, I took an oath to uphold and defend the United States Constitution. That oath did not end with my contract. It will last until my dying breath, and I take it very seriously.
My daughter is the focus of my energies. On her first birthday, she received stuffed Mickey Mouse. Mickey Mouse Clubhouse was her favorite show, and the look in her eyes as she hugged her toy melted my heart. Doing something for her is the most rewarding thing I can possibly do. Everything I do is for her in one way or another, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
I spent six years in the USAF as a Munitions Systems Specialist or AMMO, as we refer to ourselves. The technical skills I learned aren’t transferable to the civilian world, but the life lessons I received were valuable. It taught me responsibility. I developed a strong work ethic and learned to take pride in my work, regardless of what it was. Being an active duty member solidified the patriotic feelings I already had. I love this country, and I won’t stand by and let it be ruined by greedy politicians and the corporate billionaires that buy them.
The United States Constitution is the single greatest governing document ever written. Our founders created this with knowledge of the rise and fall of nations throughout history. Much of the Constitution’s greatness is because it is simple, and it leaves room to be changed as times change. The important thing to realize is that this document wasn’t written to give you rights. It wasn’t written for the individual person at all. It was written as a restriction on the power of our Federal government. The founding fathers realized that without certain restrictions in place, our government would seize as much power as possible and reinstate the tyranny they fought so hard to free themselves from. We would be a lot better off as a nation if we started following it again.
Because my daughter Harlow is the most important aspect of my life I am dedicating my life to making the world she inherits a better place. It is for her that I’ve gotten involved in politics. I want her to grow up with more freedom than me or my parents. Following the United States Constitution is the best way to achieve this. If we can simply force our government to operate within the confines of the Constitution, she and everyone else will have more liberty, our economy will begin the healing process, and we will see less pointless violence. We are America. I cannot sit idly by and let bureaucrats take us further from the Freedom that is our heritage. We must be a shining beacon of peace, prosperity, and liberty. With your help, we will be again. We have enough lawyers and businessmen in Springfield. We need more mechanics and farmers to keep them in check. Help me make that statement.
