Sands is a veteran broadcaster, digital/social media strategist, and political analyst. His radio career has spanned from the Gulf Coast to Southern California to the Midwest. Prior to joining 1370WSPD as Program Director in February 2013, he was Communications Director and Senior Policy Advisor for a Republican US Congressional Campaign in Indiana. He is a father of one, music buff, cigar afficianado, fan of the Indianapolis Colts & Alabama Crimson Tide.
Scott's political philiosophy is pretty basic: smaller federal goverment, lower taxes, and a strong national defense. Other specific concepts will be updated as they come up on the show, including:
I never became a big fan of Rep. Michelle Bachmann (R-MN) during her presidential bid a couple years ago, although I did like a lot of things she had to say. But, she just won me over ... by announcing she would not seek re-election.
I'm a big fan of term limits across the board for all government officials at every level. In fact, I think there should be a limit on the number of years someone serves in all government rather than just moving up the food chain. This is one of the reasons I worked in the Joel Phelps for Congress campaign last year - Joel pledged to serve no more than four terms and to advocate term limits for all Members of Congress.
It should be a noble proposition to serve the community in public office; but - and this is a big BUT - they should have to return to their "regular life," to live and work under the same laws they passed. Far too often today we see a "political class" living above the mountain of regulations forced on us common folk.
The main argument against term limits is that we already have them, they're called elections. Unfortunately, the electoral process is biased. Once someone wins a position of power, they have all the influence and financial support that comes along with the office - making it difficult for almost any challenger.
Where do you stand on term limits? I'd love to read your comments here or on Facebook.
