Biography

Education:

  • 1985: Humboldt State University, Forest management[5]

Enyart served in the United States Marine Corps from 1975 to 1979.[5]

He works as a consulting forester, providing services such as appraisals of standing timber, timber tax basis, timber marking, harvest supervision, forest management plans, and general land management.[5]

Issues

Enyart lists five issues on his campaign website. They include:[6]

  • Partisan Politics: Excerpt: "Partisan politics is one of the most important reasons I decided to get into this race. Everywhere I go I meet people who are just as tired and frustrated with the behavior of the people we have been electing to represent us in Washington. They place party before all else. Think about this: Every issue, no matter what the topic is, is discussed, debated, communicated, and voted on in terms of “The Republicans…” or “The Democrats…”. I’m saying, let’s have a political discussion about issues based upon the merits of the issue being discussed-without using the terms “Republican or Democrat”..."
  • Gun Control: Except: "We may have secured a small but temporary victory in the withdrawal of Senator Feinstein’s Assault Weapons Ban bill, but she intends to bring it up again as an amendment to other gun control legislation that Senate Majority leader Harry Reid is going forward with. Let’s remember she did have a similar bill passed into law before, which was not effective, and died with a sunset clause. The gun control crowd will keep working to push law abiding citizens into a corner. Every tyrannical government, every dictator, always uses emotions and the argument that they are only doing this to protect us, takes the means of resisting tyranny from the citizens just before taking complete control of the government away from the people..."
  • Federal Debt: Except: "I am a grandfather. I have three grandchildren whose debt payback will, according to current analyses, amount to hundreds of thousands of dollars. No other issue we face as a nation is more important to me personally than the federal debt and out of control federal spending. Since 1970 our central government has spent more money than it takes in all but four years. Let me remind you that this has occurred on the watch of the two major parties, regardless of which party controlled the majority of Congress or occupied the White House. These are the folks responsible for the mess our children and grandchildren, which are now being called the “Debt Paying Generation” in some forums, will inherit from us..."
  • Obamacare: Except: "First, the states have the authority (they created the federal government remember) to nullify unconstitutional Acts of Congress. (See writings on the Sedition Act, and the Kentucky and Virginia Resolutions of 1798 by Thomas Jefferson and James Madison, respectively.) Second, other cases are winding their way to the Supreme Court. They may be successful, but keep in mind the Supreme Court is a part of the federal government, and has not shown itself to be truly impartial in recent history. Repeal the Act. But this is not likely while the revolving door maintains a monopoly of the political landscape by two major parties. AND-we can elect an unknown citizen from among US, from a small and little known political party, from a small town in Missouri, to strike the first blow and crack the wall the two parties have built and maintained as long as any of US can remember."
  • Proposed Legislation: Excerpt: "Let me begin here by saying legislation I will propose will be aimed at putting limits on the central government, and lifting limits off the citizens and off of their states. I’ve noticed that the typical government solution to most issues is to place limits on law abiding citizens, instead of truly studying the problem and focusing on creative solutions or solutions that may not be “politically correct”. And I’d like to point out that the central government has been dangling carrots in front of the states, sinking the claws of economic dependence into the states, and rendering them to little more than administrative units of the central government."
