He relocated to Washington DC in 1982 and began working for several national policy organizations as a fund-raising public relations consultant.

Although he is a conservative he does not support Bush. He does not consider the administration to be truly conservative and wrote an article entitled "Is Bush A conservative? expressing these views.
He regards the global warming theory as a "hoax" that was created for political agendas.
"Catastrophic "Human-Caused" Global Warming has become a euphemism for a political agenda. It has become a religion run by fanatics reminiscent of the leaders of the darkest days of the Inquisition that nearly destroyed civil society only a few hundred years ago. We are not to question the great god of Catastrophic Global Warming. Those who do are separated from civil society and labeled as heretics.

That is why the UN is a dead loss. It should be tossed on the trash heap of history so that we may start over and create an honest enterprise that seeks to help nations, not eradicate them.
He believes that Eminent Domain and growing immigration is a growing threat to property rights that must be intercepted.
"All Americans must fully understand the impact of the Supreme Court Kelo ruling and that now, there is no private property in the United States and no home is safe from the threat of bulldozers. Above all, Americans must understand what it means to live under the threat of Eminent Domain."

In the campaign he also asks for donations and states that Congress does not know about the North American Union.
