The son of a Vietnam Veteran explores U.S. Senate bid.

Ted Burnett

The purpose of this Facebook group, Ted Burnett for U.S. Senate in 2020 Group, is to get me, Ted Burnett from Daphne, AL, elected to the United States Senate on November 3, 2020. The seat is currently occupied by Doug Jones (D-AL) a Democrat. In December 2017, Doug won a special election against crazy Judge Roy Moore. The campaign primarily centered around allegations of Roy Moore hitting on teenage girls while he worked as a prosecutor in a local district attorney’s office some thirty years ago. Like most political campaigns the real issues affecting everyday Alabamians weren’t discussed because they aren’t discussed in Washington, either. It’s time for that to change. It’s time to turn the federal government’s steering wheel over to the next generation — our. In reality, nobody voluntarily gives up power willingly so we have, but one choice and that’s to beat Doug Jones, the Democrat incumbent, and the next Republican candidate, TBD, at the ballot box on November 3, 2020.

I welcome all Alabamians and those from other states to join this group and to support this effort anyway you can. On principle, I am running as an Independent. I have long given up on the Republican Party because of their lies over the recent wars and the Democrats have proven to be no better over scandals like the 2008 global credit crisis, home foreclosure crisis, mass unemployment, a long recession and the student loan crisis where one bad policy and law after another has created a national debt of $19 trillion with no plans to pay it back down in a timely fashion. Even the previous tax policies of the Reagan Era left the government with no money to rebuild our infrastructure of roads, builds, airports and seaports. It too is a mess. Above all, not one CEO went to prison for their dealings that left the taxpayer on the hook. Without that immediate federal bailout, this country and its economy would look much different today.

The first step in becoming a candidate is getting my name on the official ballot, which requires collecting 36,000 names of registered Alabama voters. My reason for running for office is my disgust over what’s happening within each political party and between the two political parties. The United States appears to be self-destructive financially, politically, socially and spiritually. We seem to suffer from a spiritual crisis and we’ve forgotten our own spiritual foundation as so perfectly expressed by Thomas Jefferson and the other founding fathers. I’m politically conservative on many constitutional issues, economic and industry, military, but also a free-thinker on other issues. Ultimately, I’m a seeker of the truth and I seek policy outcomes that work for America.

Note: My late-father, Tommy Burnett, was a U.S. marine and a Vietnam Veteran. He enlisted for three years, 1965-’68, after dropping out of college at The University of Alabama, the first time. He spent the last eight months of his enlistment in Vietnam where he had priority access to fly on any aircraft going anywhere. Tommy flew over all five northern provinces of South Vietnam delivering mail and information to combatants in the field. While his exposure to direct combat was minimal, he flew by helicopter with the dead and watched metal caskets of dead Americans get loaded daily by forklifts onto C-141’s at Da Nang Air Base. He was haunted by what he saw and did in Vietnam. He died at the age of 53. Shortly before his death, my father left behind a 30-year secret, July 24 by Tommy Burnett, http://tedburnett.com/july-24-by-tommy-burnett-2013/
