US Senate as a United States Senator = Professional Federal Legislator = Writer of Federal Laws and Acts, editor of U.S. Constitution, and creator of Federal Agencies; as elected until otherwise, constitutionally.

"I believe that the United States is the best country in the world and that Oklahoma is the number one state. I wish to unite the nation under one vision: to clean up our environment, expand our industry and build our economy, improve our citizen health and focus on education."

 

*DISCLAIMER* The industrial suggestions in the 77 Series and the congressional district projects assume no legislative restrictions. The economic endeavor discovers legislative needs for the development of Oklahoma industry; the needs I will address in congress that enable our projects to manifest. 

 

Welcome to my campaign page for U.S. Senate 2020 out of Oklahoma. Under the "Issues" tab you will find literature on the 77 counties within the state as well as a pamphlet for the people. Feel free to browse around and enjoy watching a new era of Democracy unfold.

Through impeccable legislation, technology, and a shared vision, Oklahoma will become an industrial gem of the United States. We have the resources, the people, and the capability; all we need now is the legislation.

I understand that our legislature deals with much more than just our economy. As a Senator, I wish for my two Class A Committees to be Agriculture and Foreign Relations. For my Class B Committee, I would like to be on the Joint Economic Committee. Thus, the focus of my campaign is in these realms. However, I will be current on all pending issues as my vote will be important in each bill that is presented. 

For new voters, you can find the registration application link here: New Voters

Please understand Oklahoma is a CLOSED PRIMARY state. In the Primary Election June 30th, 2020,  I am running as a Democrat. If you like this industrial renovation project, support my senatorial campaign. After winning the November 3rd election, we will remove the barriers restricting our industrial expansion.

Railroad Barriers and Supply Chain Control

In Oklahoma’s third congressional district, there is an opportunity to install a textile mill and purchase a virtually endless supply of raw cotton from our neighbors in Texas. However, establishing a cotton industry in the state is proving to be more difficult than expected. First, we are expecting little production in the state and must source the cotton from out of state. Once we possess the cotton, we have to carefully navigate state regulations for building our processes. But buying the raw materials and installing a legal process is not where we are blocked; we are blocked from utilizing the national supply chain to obtain a competitive advantage.


Railroad companies, the large ones that span across North America, have a long history of using rates to control the national supply chain. From the mid 1800’s into the 1900’s, the United States Congress and several presidents tried earnestly to prevent railroads from controlling industry; it is evident in 2019 that the US railroad industry needs restructuring. I say this because we built the railways to foster industrial expansion, now we must restore them for our national economy to thrive and for us to reach our true industrial capacity.

The Surface Transportation Board is the governing federal agency over the railroad industry and we must work with them to ensure our smaller, younger businesses can be successful. 

There are several ways in which railroad companies control distribution within their networks. When you visit the rail company websites, you will be able to locate their tariff policy, rules for shipping with them, and their fees and penalties and other service costs; some of these rule books are 65 pages, some are only 11. No matter how elaborate their pricing and tariff policies are, each company has about the same fundamental concept for shipping; they charge their own tariffs for interstate commerce within their network, they charge their own switching service fees, and they have a long list of charges for various penalties and other options.

The Class One railroads have enormous power and they can control the nation's supply chain through rate manipulation that dictates activity. This is only one component of the railroad barriers; there are more practices that prevent the national supply chain from flowing.

Railroad companies have a switch fee that is charged every time a railcar changes from one rail network to the jurisdiction of another. This is not necessarily an issue with the larger customers who travel long distances on the same network and stop at the nation’s largest cities to unload and reload freight. This becomes devastating for our rural routes that switch over and over to reach their destination; the switch service fee is typically hundreds of dollars per carload and accompanied with the tariffs, can cause a business venture to fail.

Lastly, a citizen must be a shrewd businessman in order to play in the railroad industry. There are fines for leaving an empty railcar on a return trip and the switch fees still apply. There are also demurrage charges for not emptying your freight within a specified time period and penalties for being overweight and fees for carrying hazardous materials. As you can see, it is impractical for small businesses to incorporate railroads in their supply chain given the dominance of the largest networks and the current cost structure for the US railroad industry.

For Oklahoma to industrialize to capacity, we must create a set of rules for our nation’s railways. I completely agree that networks, the distinct rail industry jurisdictions, are important to enhance safety and promote organization across North American routes. However, these networks cannot use their tariffs to control the industry. We also cannot be penalized for switching networks; the switch service fees limit market access and combined with tariffs, prevent comprehensive industrial participation in the United States.

The penalties for being overweight, returning empty railcars, or being late unloading cargo is acceptable as it is the responsibility of the customer to ensure they do not interfere with the railroad’s operations. I am aware that this approach to expanding our nation’s industry will bring about a level of economic loss for our railroads, but the subsequent industrial expansion will help compensate for the loss of revenue, especially among the smaller tracks. Our citizens must have affordable access to railways and they must have complete autonomy when determining trade routes; we can give them this competitive advantage by breaking down the existing distribution barriers.

The railroad industry is complex and I have rolled up my sleeves and dug in. I will be discussing railroad utilization more with some of my mentors in the business to thoroughly understand the limitations so that we can overcome them with legislation. One thing is certain; it is critical that our businesses are able to transport raw materials and finished goods throughout North America via our railroads. They must be able to dictate their supply chain needs based on their operations and our railroad companies need to be service providers instead of service deciders.

National Patient Identifier Repeal Act

There is an act that was sponsored in Capitol Hill that will prevent citizens from having a social security like number assigned to them for their health information.

I must first give some background information. In 1996, government passed legislation that required patients to have a unique identifier so that their health information would be tracked across healthcare facilities, and states. 

This was never enforced and there was never national data collected on healthcare cases. Each time you go to a new healthcare facility, you are enrolled with their own unique identifier.

This makes research on cancers, diseases, and other illnesses very expense and any consolidated effort to eliminate health issues among our citizens is nearly impossible.

In order for the United States government agencies to locate and eliminate exacerbating elements in the environment, we must be able to know exactly where the cases are coming from. 

For example: Sally is six years old and develops a cough in a small town in Kentucky and has to go to the doctor. By age 8, she can no longer participate in youth athletics because she is always tired and her parents take her to a big hospital in Louisville. There, they detect a malignant tumor growing in her chest and send her to St. Jude's in Oklahoma where she is enrolled once again with a unique identifier. 

This means that professionals have to track everywhere she has been treated. We must be able to see where the health issues began in order to help prevent more cases like Sally. When her unique identifier is run, we have to know about each of her visits from any facility or we will overlook the root cause. 

The cure for cancer is going to be finding the isotopes that exist in our environment that the body absorbs into cancer. Not enforcing the unique identifier legislation of the past 23 years has built enormous barriers for research and discovery. 

Not only should this repeal act be vetoed, but our patients should have their unique identifiers so patients health can truly be assessed.

People must understand that health is a big business. Administrators will lose their jobs if their hospitals do not keep their beds full and this is a major issue in private health. I want to empty hospitals, not fill them up and I will as a United States legislator. 

As a U.S. legislator, I swear that I will defend the health of our population by breaking down barriers that will subsequently allow our scientist to remove cancer causing elements from our environment. I will also demand that the president of the United States enforce proper SEC reporting from our Hospitals. 

Politicians wonder why there are not more active voters. They wonder why the population is not more engaged in our government. I can tell you right now that it is because the government looks bad; the government looks unorganized and it is disgraceful when we live in such a strong Republic. 

Our government needs to carry themselves as who they are; our elected officials are the most powerful people in the world. Elected officials are the smartest, most dedicated, and most compassionate people. They have the ability to erase any issues and concerns that our people encounter. That is our job; that is what we are elected to do. 

When I am in office, we are only passing legislation that improves the quality of life for our citizens and all of our legislation will be enforced as required by the duties and responsibilities of the oval office. 

2020 is all about restoring the United States; we are the best country in the world and we are coming back. We are rebuilding our industry and fixing the economy. We are protecting our environment, improving our citizen health and focusing on education.

Trade Balance and Agriculture

I have been doing a lot of research on agriculture in my endeavor to start a farm. I have learned how to make milk, cheese and yogurt from a cow; I have also learned how to grow vegetables indoors and am seeking out various fruit species to clone. My goal is to provide my entire family tree with their meat, dairy, fruit, vegetable and grain needs. Then, I will see where the difficulties are for getting farming products to market so I know where to begin legislating for U.S. agriculture. 

There are a lot of good tax benefits for farming and I will post about my experiences as I uncover them. As for now, I know that cultivation is a rewarding experience and I want to ensure Oklahomans are able to participate fairly. The best way to do this is to farm myself as the campaign is building and I am in between news recording and business discussions. 

Anywhere I go, I pay attention to where products are coming from. Over the weekend, I bought tomatoes from Mexico and bell peppers from Canada. I created a negative trade deficit for the United States but it made me realize something; I realized that our trade balance occurs at the point of sale. As soon as a purchase is made, the balance goes one way or the other. 

Our retailers have all the power when it comes to trade balance. They have the power to stock our shelves with products from anywhere in the world. This is incredible with globalization and you can buy anything you want from anywhere in the world at any time. This only becomes a setback when we buy more from overseas than we do domestically.

With our current inventory management technology, we know at any given time how much of any product is being sold. I propose using this ability to balance trade. This concept is not completely developed, but I have the basis for a solid argument. 

I propose balancing trade at the point of sale; we can balance trade from our retail outlets. We should require our retailers to have at least a zero trade balance and encourage a positive trade balance. Within the inventory management software, there should be a breakdown of U.S. goods and goods from another country. At the end of every month, the total sales of U.S. goods sold must equal the total amount of non U.S. goods sold. 

This can be done when retailers have a balanced inventory. They can have 50% United States products and 50% from anywhere else. When our largest retailers do not even hold 10% of U.S. products, it hurts our economy because that means our country is losing more money than it is making. By balancing the trade at the point of sale, we accomplish a lot of good for the national economy. 

I do not mind buying produce from our neighbors, but I do believe an Oklahoman can satisfy our domestic needs year-round with the right business model. If a bell pepper can travel thousands of miles into my pizza, it can definitely travel ten miles. I want to be the legislator to ensure this is possible.

Busy Quarter Four

Since I have completed the 77 Series and have an understanding of the needs of Oklahoma industry, I am now aiming to build a cattle ranch in Hugo and am working on the business model for a textile mill in Arapaho and a new flour mill and a new lumber mill in the state.

Naturally, this takes a lot of networking and pulling together resources. This is primarily what I will be doing for quarter four of 2019 through quarter one 2020. 

I will also be reaching out to the Democratic Party of Oklahoma and helping them any way I can over the next year to promote their ideas and share my own. 

Please enjoy reading through my literature and if you have any comments or ideas please reach out to me at bevonforsenate@gmail.com

I will be editing and compiling the initial economic research from the 77 Series into a book for Oklahoma citizens; please correct me and help me expand if you feel there is more to your county's economic situation. 

Thank you everyone for your support and I look forward to seeing you out and about in Oklahoma.

P.S. I will respond to out-of-state letters ASAP. This is aimed primarily at the gentleman from Wisconsin and the REGIS Initiative. I like this idea very much and I definitely believe a collaboration is necessary to reach our food production requirements in our communities.

Saturday Thoughts

I have had a few thoughts today:

1. I am not interested in accumulating massive personal wealth nor owning businesses, that is distracting for me. Rather, all I am concerned with being the most competitive nation in the world and ensuring our citizens have the best health and education. I love economics and I have a passion for science, math and art. I am also a writer and I want to serve the state as a United States legislator so I can ensure obstacles do not prevent our people from accumulating wealth and owning businesses. I also want to use health science to improve our health through improving our environment. Our education will also receive more funding than ever as our industry expands to capacity.

2. My father passed up an opportunity in the late 1990's and early 2000's to be an internet service provider and to take over software application development in the beginning phases of web based applications. He chose not to because he was quickly climbing the ranks in civilian government and was comfortable with his work-life balance. He now builds entire health systems for Sovereign Nations and they are staffed with the best health professionals while providing free health care to tribal citizens and never thinks twice about not going into information technology. My idea on providing healthcare in the U.S. stems from his healthcare model for Sovereign Nations. 

1. We have set salaries for the entire health operations and have fixed costs. 

2. We can forecast inventory for medical supplies and we source from the most competitive supplier.

3. We use technology for health records, human capital management, and to connect to our patients. 

4. We focus on patient health and well-being and a good day is a day where no one comes in.

5. The government of the Sovereign Nation pays for this operation and as they become more efficient, they see increased allowances for new equipment and new health departments; typically revenue from the tribal enterprise grows faster than the financial needs for the health operation.

There is no room for misguided economic decisions and with the right people running the sovereign government, the model works perfectly; the citizens are healthier and the cost is controlled with a continuously improved budget that enables expansion.

3. My last thought is on a new view of trade, strategic trade. I believe when we expand trade into Northern Europe, we should focus not on the currency transaction, but actual trade. I would like for Oklahoma to offer our raw materials in exchange for equipment, valves, high-tech plastics and even gold and silver. I am researching the Polish economy now and finding goods we can trade with our raw materials to observe the most financial gain. I am going to research all twelve of the new markets I discovered and continue building my industrial agenda so that these new trade routes can come to life.
