Dr. Robert (Bob) Derlet grew up in a working class neighborhood of Los Angeles in an era when kids played in the dirt of vacant lots, and dreamed about becoming firemen or racecar drivers. His dad worked for the LA Times/Mirror in street sales distribution.

Bob began after-school work at the early age of eight years, selling newspapers to traffic at the signal light of Santa Monica Blvd/Vine in Hollywood. After-school and summer-work continued through college, at jobs ranging from newspapers, to construction, to cattle ranching, to a boiler room scrub on a Merchant Ship.

The Derlet family moved to Hawaii when Bob was eleven, where he continued school on the island of Oahu. The family returned to LA, where he graduated with highest honors from John Marshall High School. He attended the University of California, Santa Cruz, being the first in his family line to go to a four-year college.

After finishing Medical School, he spent his career at UC Davis as a Professor and Chief of Emergency Medicine at the UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento. He taught medical students, published over 100 scientific research articles, started a training program for specialists in Emergency Medicine, and served two terms as Chief of Staff.

Part-time resident of Twain Harte, CA, for 15+ years, he moved there permanently five years ago wanting to live year-around near the outdoor recreational opportunities of Sierra Nevada. But Medicine called again, so he put in another three years, this time as a front-line primary care physician at a Rural Health Clinic in Tuolumne City. Listening to the many struggles of his patients in navigating a complex healthcare system while trying to stay afloat economically galvanized him to run for Congress.

Bob has four college-educated daughters and three adorable grandchildren.

Immigration

Should immigration laws be changed?  What changes would you support?  Please explain why.

Respuesta de Robert W. Derlet:

We are a country of immigrants. We have an orderly process of legal immigration, which has strengthened our national core. We also have many undocumented immigrants, who contribute to our workforce and pay taxes. I support a pathway to citizenship, and this should be a priority for Congress.

2.
Partisan Political Climate

The political climate in Washington, D.C. has been extremely partisan in recent years. In that kind of atmosphere, what would you do to get things done while in office?

Respuesta de Robert W. Derlet:

Our government has been one of legislative compromises beginning with the many drafts of the US Constitution.  Both sides of the aisle can come to agreement on so may issues, for example the Chemical Safety act (HR 2576) just passed in the House in May 2016 with a 403 to 12 vote.  Setting aside ideologies and labels, and passing legislation that benefits the people of this nation can be achieved by negotiation and dialog.

3.
National Security

What, if anything, does the U.S. need to do in order to address national security and terrorism? Please explain your answer in detail.

Respuesta de Robert W. Derlet:

We have the best armed forces of any country in the world.  We must continue to be vigilant against any potential aggression by nations possessing nuclear weapons such as North Korea and Russia. The war torn Middle East countries Iraq and Syria pose great challenges.  ISIS poses a global threat  that must be defeated.  Our duty is to employ maximum, diplomatic, economic, and cyber weapons, work with our United Nations allies, and to support the military efforts of front line Middle East nations.

4.
Drought

The Federal Government plays a part in California water allocation and use through a variety of laws.  What, if any, legislation would you support in an effort to handle water shortages caused by the current and any future drought?

Respuesta de Robert W. Derlet:

Fresh water is critical to the millions of people who live in California, and to our agricultural economy. Protecting our Sierra Nevada Mountain snowpack and watershed should to be our first priority.  Scientific management of watershed forests  requires Federal funding, which I will support. More efficient use of water both at home and on the farm can be achieved through funding research, and technologies.  Climate change and drought will challenge California, and Federal initiatives to counter climate change are essential.

Wages and Cost of Living
The costs of living - housing, auto expenses, food, healthcare, and education - have rapidly increased while average family income has not. Outsourcing jobs overseas has driven down wages and increased unemployment. I will vote for policies that bring jobs back to the USA and up the minimum wage for all workers.

Consumer Rights
We need to prevent financial institutions and corporations from cheating Americans with their new "gotcha!" fees on bank accounts, credit cards, mortgages, auto loans, and consumer goods such as basic cell phone service. I will defend our Consumer Rights.

Education
I will push for legislation to provide all our children and grandchildren with first class educational opportunities that will make them leaders in a competitive world. Our colleges must be affordable and our students protected from predatory lending practices.

Healthcare
Healthcare is outrageously expensive. Much of the money finds its way to profits, at your expense. The healthcare insurance segment retains up to 25 percent of your healthcare dollar. Limiting what insurance companies keep, and capping maximum healthcare charges, would save money for American families and our small businesses.

Social Security and Medicare
The older Americans who helped build this country should not be sold out to Wall Street. Social Security should not be handed over to speculators or hedge funds, as some members of Congress have proposed. Medicare should not be converted to a voucher system that allows insurance companies to dictate your medical care and limit your choice of doctors. In addition, let's work on lowering the Medicare age to 55 years old.

Equal pay for equal work
I support equal pay for equal work. In California, women are paid 84 cents for every dollar paid to men. If the wage gap were eliminated, a working woman in California would have enough money for approximately 59 more weeks of food for her family.

Climate Change
California’s four year drought and the strong possibility that it may continue is an urgent concern to all of us. Our every day lives and the economics of a state whose wealth is strongly related to our agricultural production and the recreational use of its streams, lakes, and estuary are all being impacted by a warming climate.

Once in Congress, I will first press for a workable and sustainable clean energy policy. Second, I will work for recognition that the changing climate will require a  realistic approach to protecting California’s food production. This will require working to improve the management of California’s increasingly limited and drought threatened water supply.

Immigration

Should immigration laws be changed?  What changes would you support?  Please explain why.

Respuesta de Sean White:

The economy needs people in the fields where many immigrants work. Politicians act like they do not want immigrants in our country, while at the same time know that they must be let in to support our low paying jobs in the fields. Agricultural workers are going to be here one way or another. Since they are here illegally, they have less worker rights, which is good for business, but bad for the immigrants.

 

Also, the US is famous for high education institutions and we take a lot of the smartest people into the world into our country to go to our schools. Many of the smartest people in the world end up staying here, which is a problem for the "brain drain" within the other countries, but a benefit for the United States. These immigrants create technologies which keep the USA #1!

 

Examples of immigrants that improved our country:

Albert Einstein

Elon Musk-SpaceX, Tesla, Paypal, Solar City

Sergey Bren-Google

Alexander Graham Bell

John Muir

 

Also, many rich people from around the world immigrate to America and bring their money with them, which is good for the US economy.

 

I believe our entire political system, including immigration reform needs to be reformed, so that it does not cater only to special interests who pay for political campaigns!

 

We do have a reverse immigration problem. Many corporations have merged with other smaller corporations so they can move to a country where they do not have to pay taxes. They call this a tax inversion and is a problem.

2.
Partisan Political Climate

The political climate in Washington, D.C. has been extremely partisan in recent years. In that kind of atmosphere, what would you do to get things done while in office?

Respuesta de Sean White:

I will not accept campaign contributions and will not have an incentive to play political favors to those objecting to good legislation.

 

I have absolutely no respect for the status-quo politician who is sold out to the highest campaign contributor.

 

If elected, it would provide hope for others that are disillusioned with the system. If someone can win an election without taking money, then others will run for office without taking money. In the mean time, most people are discouraged and give up on the idea that real change can really happen.

 

Most voters would agree that most voters are stupid for voting for someone, just because they have a pretty colored sign on the side of the road. Be part of the solution? Make a difference and vote against the pretty sign. It is easy to check on the Internet at www.opensecrets.org for how much money a politician has raised. Vote against the politician who raised the most money.

 

My campaign is not about me, it is about a political system that is run by large campaign contributions and politicians that will do anything to get that money in order to get elected. My campaign is about starting a new paradigm, where people educated themselves about the money and throw out the bums. I agree that my chances of winning this election are small, but over time, I am hoping that my message will amplify. The greatest Republican of all, Abe Lincoln lost many elections and I hope to follow in his footsteps.

 

I would like to change our two-party system.

3.
National Security

What, if anything, does the U.S. need to do in order to address national security and terrorism? Please explain your answer in detail.

Respuesta de Sean White:

Weapons manufactures, aircraft manufacturers, Halliburton and many more multi-national corporations that make huge campaign contributions benefit greatly from conflicts in the Middle East. Usually, unless we are giving someone military support in the Middle East, the people in the Middle East resent outside influence from the United States in the region. Before we enter another conflict in the Middle East, we should require that all of these business that would benefit economically from a war should not be allowed to contribute to the politicians that are deciding to go to war or intervene.

 

I often have jobs and work in the Middle East and there are a lot of good people in countries that many Americans fear. There are good and bad people everywhere. I have taught solar classes to good engineers (good hard working family men and women) in Lebanon, Pakistan, Qatar and Oman.

 

I am torn between letting people in the Middle East solve their own problems and helping people that are getting killed now. There is an opinion that the US invasion of Iraq, (where there were not weapons of mass destruction) has caused an imbalance in the region, which has led to ISIS.

 

The US is allied with many non-democratic countries. Many countries spend a lot of money lobbying/influencing our politicians and influencing USA discourse.

 

America should be a democracy of the people, not the corporation. America should not defend entities that do not respect human rights.

4.
Drought

The Federal Government plays a part in California water allocation and use through a variety of laws.  What, if any, legislation would you support in an effort to handle water shortages caused by the current and any future drought?

Respuesta de Sean White:

We are going to eventually need to get water from wetter regions than within our state. Anything else is a temporary fix. Population is increasing, droughts are common, temperatures are rising and aquifers are drying up. Tweaking the limited water supply in the Delta is only a temporary fix. It is very wet to the north of California and eventually we will get water from the north and it will cost a lot. As world populations increase, water for farming is becoming increasingly scarce. It may be that the wars of the future will be fought over access to water. Some people say that the war in Syria would not have happened and ISIS would not have formed if there were more water for farming. Crops get thirsty, people get hungry, people get angry and a small percentage of them chose to die as martyrs. The “water wars” that we have in California are tame compared to the slaughter going on in Africa due to drought.

 

Desalination is very expensive, but it is a potential solution, especially with the exponentially decreasing costs of solar energy and technology.

Money corrupts politics. I believe that the cause of most of our problems in society are derived from the fact that it takes money to win elections and that raising money has become more important than good bipartisan legislation to politicians.

Want to get something done in Washington, pay money. Selling guns and need a good war? Donate to a campaign and get it done. Need to send mercury into a river? Pay like the Koch Brothers pay. Own a politician.
