Hi I'm Todd Watson, an Independent candidate running for United States Senate.

Our party platform has three key philosophies compared to a traditional campaign agenda. First, we believe that the party system in Washington is broken. Second, we believe in a foundational return to the spiritual heritage of our country. Third, we believe it is time government act selfless and not selfish with the future of this country.

We have great passion to be part of a larger movement under God of real change in this country. Enjoy the site and let’s MOVE! Learn why all individuals who interviewed Todd of the York County GOP leadership committee endorsed Todd Watson for US Senate.

This site is designed to give you the information you need quickly while yet thorough enough to move the dialogue of the debate to “How” from “What”. “Todd’s Stances” has quick positional stances (read the bold if you have no time). Second, we have three Philosophies with quick excerpts to learn more about our beliefs. Finally, we thoroughly blog on any given topic to give those passionate about a subject details they can depend on. The details in these blogs gives you a roadmap to solving problems and details on specific views. You will rarely find disclosure of this level of detail as well as belief structures. Campaigns want to be general to appeal to the most voters. We fundamentally believe in giving specific guidance to move the debate forward and show we are serious about solving problems–not being popular.

Thanks for your support!

Religious Liberty, Obama, and the Washington Post

Sometimes you do not need to augment the writer.  Please read this article first –

My only point is that actions speak louder than words.  We need to see more action and less talk out of the current administration if we are to believe his statements.

Obama is quoted in this story –  “History shows that nations that uphold the rights of their people — including the freedom of religion — are ultimately more just and more peaceful and more successful.”

We agree–so let’s start observing religious liberty.  We are thankful our justice system was successful and voted unanimously to reject the administration’s actions against the church.   The mere fact that the decision was unanimous was an encouraging vote from our justice system who understands that the government has no business in the church’s affairs.

We need people speaking up for their rights and not staying silent in an attempt to be left alone.   A good historical study is the change of heart of religious leaders who were once silent but decided to take action during our nation’s founding.  We should learn from history and understand religious liberty is not going to be preserved by staying silent in hopes of “being left alone”.

Todd Watson believes in fighting for religious liberty for all people.  Please support Watson for United States Senate in Nebraska.

Obama’s Opinion I Agree With

As I talk to people across the state, the conversation is clear in Conservative circles.  Nebraska is campaigning on who can’t stand Obama (especially Obamacare) more.  As conservatives, we are upset with many of the policies (understatement) the Democrats have enacted.

We must continue to stand up for a way of life that moves away from government control and returns the freedoms and liberties given to us by our creator and constitution.  However, I know in this era of political gridlock we need to find something we agree on.

I dug hard to find something I agree with the President on, but I found it.  I thought it was worth mentioning as I believe the future Congressional delegations must find common ground to work together.  Let me be the first candidate in the Conservative circles to say I agree with the President on one of his statements.

This quote is from his speech in 2006.  I agree with him 100% on this specific statement. 

Obama – USA Today – 07/10/2006 –

“Secularists are wrong when they ask believers to leave their religion at the door before entering the public square. Frederick Douglas, Abraham Lincoln, William Jennings Bryan (Great Nebraskan), Dorothy Day, Martin Luther King – indeed, the majority of great reformers in American history – were not only motivated by faith, but repeatedly used religious language to argue for their cause……So to say that men and women should not inject their ‘personal morality’ into public policy debates is a practical absurdity.”

“Our law is by definition a codification of morality,  much of it grounded in the Judeo-Christian tradition.”

Many people (including conservative circles) will argue our law was not founded on Judeo-Christian principles.  The President and I agree that much of it is.

Finally, the question is not if the law involves statements of morality.  The question is which form of morality is a public servant fighting for to be law?

Todd Watson for U.S. Senate believes good law starts with a foundation grounded in the Judeo-Christian tradition.  I agree with the President on this statement from 2006.
