Who's James Green, and Why Should We All Be Pulling For Him?
James Green is one of two candidates for the 134th District in The Missouri House of Representatives. He loves the 4th of July for what it stands for and for the fireworks. He loves his son and being a dad. He can't wait every summer for small town events like The Old Fashion Days in his hometown of Summersville or Pumpkin Daze in his current town of Republic. He even liked the idea of buying a home in Republic because of the name of the town, and I didn't ask in our last interview but I'm guessing he puts his pants on one leg at a time too. I know, the last line was cheesy but hey, it was all too fitting. The point that I'm trying to make is this; James Green is just like you and me. From loving this country and state, to loving the things to do in it, and if he loses this election he will continue to work for "The Man" and do everything I listed above. Actually, I’m pretty convinced at this point, that if he wins, he's still going to do all these things I listed because that's just who he is. He isn't the guy who only comes around for a contribution, and he is sure not what we would call a "Politician." So if he’s not a politician type, then why would he be putting himself though the time consuming work involved in any campaign for office? It's not like our State Representatives make a ton of cash and up to this point hasn't raised much money. He's true grassroots, believing that you shouldn't have to take ridiculous amounts of money to earn the trust of the people of Missouri. "Sure, there is cost involved in running a campaign" says Green, "but it shouldn't take as much money as people spend trying to get elected. I hope that my message can catch on and spread by word of mouth not only to voters but to other candidates, that the people of Missouri, and the rest of America, deserve better, and better doesn't always mean more money." With social networking, Blogs like this one, You Tube, and message boards, we could see that start to become a reality.
"America as a whole wanted change two years ago in the election, we got change but it wasn't the change we needed. The States have got to remind the Federal Government, that according to the 10th Amendment of the Constitution, we hold all rights not delegated to the Federal Government in the Constitution, the States created the Federal Government, and we will not be bullied." Green goes on to say, "I want to see true transparency in our Government at all levels period. The American people deserve to know what is going on and we shouldn't need special decoder rings to understand any Bill or Law. The 2,700 page Healthcare Bill was passed in the House on Sunday night and not one person I know saw it until Saturday. How can anyone not see how unfair that is to the people who elected these officials?" I think he hits it on the head without even going into the specifics of the new Healthcare/tax-you-over-&-over-&-over-again Bill. Needless to say, I was fired up, just like we all should be after talking with our new freedom-loving candidate.
It’s now for us all to decide, do we want more of what we are getting? Or should we start sending new people, and new perspectives into our Federal and State offices? Its time we all wake up and pay attention to what's going on. We must take off our party blinders and start looking at the people who are running not just the 'R' or 'D' next to their names. Not all conservatives are conservative, so watch out this fall. We may find this out the hard way if we don't pay attention this time around.
Here is James Greens Bio:
James Glenn Green was born on 7/10/1979 in Mtn. View, Missouri. He is a life long Missouri resident who was raised in his hometown of Summersville by his mother and father, Diann and Glenn Green. His father, Glenn, who has been a huge influence on James’ life, has been the Pastor at the Arroll Community Church for over 30 years and served 3 terms on his local school board. His mother Diann is a cancer survivor and a huge source of strength in his life. He has a 4-year-old son, Tyler James Green, who is truly the light in his life.
James is running for the 134th seat in the Missouri House of Representatives. Jim Viebrock, who is running for county commissioner, vacated this seat due to term limits. James is a freedom-loving candidate who stands firmly on Family, Faith, and The Constitution. James is pro-gun, pro-life, and a supporter of small businesses. He understands that Missouri small businesses create jobs, not out of touch bureaucrats in Washington D.C. As a proud supporter of the Tea Party Movement, he promises to hold the line when it comes to government waste and spending, which is out of control.
Before running for state office, James graduated from Summersville RII High School and then attended Ozark Christian College in Joplin and studied Biblical Literature.

He is currently the Assistant General Manager at Sunshine Lanes Bowling Center and served as President of the Springfield High School Bowling Program from 2008 to 2009.
