ABOUT HERBERT G. PETERS
Herb is the author of this
Herb is a Fundamentalist
Christian; He regularly attends protestant worship services.
I believe in and worship our
Creator God that, I believe, created the heavens and the earth and life. I
believe that Jesus Christ is the “Only Begotten Son of God,” was born of a
virgin, lived a sinless life; and as a perfect sacrifice was beaten and
tortured and crucified and rose from the dead to defeat death. And; that by
accepting Jesus Christ as my personal savior I am born again. My sins are
I believe in Heaven and Hell.
I believe in the words Jesus spoke, including John 14:6;
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the
life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
I believe that about 2/3rds
of our population were Christians prior to the establishment of our new
form of government; providing the Godly Culture that enabled the founding
fathers to develop and produce the “Declaration of Independence” and the
I believe in the US
Constitution and that our government should abide by it (as written).
Sadly, we the people have allowed our government (with the Supreme Court
blessing) to drift significantly from our constitution; and that we are
paying for those deviations with excessive government, unnecessary wars,
excessive costs of living, lack of jobs and homelessness.
The US Constitution includes
the “freedom of religion” clause: Congress shall make no law respecting an
establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof
I believe that the freedom of
religion clause of the US Constitution includes the freedom to believe what
you choose to believe including Christianity, Judaism, Atheism, Islam or
any other beliefs.
I believe that we must not
use government force in an attempt to change any person’s religious
beliefs; and that government force should not be used to prevent a person
from exercising their own religious beliefs.
I also believe that the
government violates the constitution if it defines morals then punishes any
persons for acting against those ill defined government morals.
I would not support or
propose any bill that aimed to limit any of the God given Freedoms and
Liberties granted to each of us as individuals by our Creator God or by our
Two Children, seven grand
children and two great grand children.

immigrated to the USA in about 1875. His parents became

operating a business.

EXPERIENCE; 3 Careers
Served my parents as a
farmer's son, started working on the farm at 8 years of age.
Served the US Government as a
member of the Federal Aviation Administration; Herb retired from an award
winning and rewarding career where he was cited for his outstanding work as
an aerospace engineer.
Sought the office of US
Representative during 8 election cycles starting October, 1999 to June of
2016; one was a special election. Six elections in California as a
Libertarian and one in Nevada as a Republican and the last two as a
Democrat in the primary for Nevada’s CD1 and US Senator from California.
After studying the 18th
Century Democrat presidents (those Democrats were Libertarians) I feel very
comfortable as a Democrat. It should be noted that Democrat Andrew
Jackson’s administration wisely dumped the national bank, produced 7
balanced budgets in his 8 years as President and paid the federal
debt down to zero on January 8, 1835. That Democrat Franklin Pierce vetoed
a “Welfare Bill,”
wisely admonishing the future by saying that the federal government should
not get involved in welfare. (About 75 years later a “welfare bill” was
signed and now we have over
109 million of our people on some form of means tested government
programs. And that Grover Cleveland vetoed a “Farm
Subsidy” admonishing that the US Constitution had NO PROVISION for
