Seibert began his military career at age 19 by enlisting in the Army. He was deployed numerous times, including in Guatemala, Bosnia, Persian Gulf and Afghanistan. Seibert earned a BA in Criminal Justice and later received a master's degree in Organizational Management.
Seibert's campaign website lists the following issues:
- Champion Fiscal Responsibility
- Excerpt: "Congress is the steward of our country’s money. Our government is taking in $5 billion per day, but spending $9 billion per day. I will work to reduce our spending and create a balanced budget."
- Jobs and the Economy
- Excerpt: "I have the experience working with government and business to improve economic growth. My leadership in Afghanistan has demonstrated the synergy that can occur between business and government, resulting in economic growth."
- Excerpt: "Our current tax system is over-complicated and favors a few. I believe that the system needs to be overhauled, and replaced with a simpler and fairer tax system."
- Strong National Defense
- Excerpt: "Our National defense is vital to our security and our way of life. Having served on the front lines, I know the hardship that is created when we send our sons and daughters into harm’s way. The use of armed action is the final option of diplomacy and committing our forces must be prudent and in our national interest."
- Border Security
- Excerpt: "I spent 13 months working with the Afghan and Pakistan police to secure their border, and improve customs and immigration. I have seen firsthand what works and what does not. Some of the same technology that the Army successfully employed in that part of the world can also be used on our US border."
