Van & Jean have also since moving to AZ served as PCs (Precinct Committeemen), State Committeemen and Delegates to State Conventions. They’ve also Hosted Candidate Forums, Rallies at the Capitol including a Pro 2nd Amendment Rally, Fundraiser 4 Vets and other Political Events using the Radio Show as the launching pad.
Van & Jean in 1975 founded & operated a Christian Halfway & Coffee House in Bellfower, Ca. with out reach to L.A.’s skid row, Hollywood Blvd. and a Village in Baja Ca., Mexico., from 75 to the early 90’s, where they gave aid and advice to any who dropped in.
Van's a Retired Successful Business Executive / Entrepreneur, working for 5 Companies in the Food Industry 1972 to 2001 hired to Restore & Build Companies, and in the process built his own Property Management Co., Distribution, Marketing, Consulting Co., Antique Store Front w/ Online Business, and in L.A. a Communications Company on AM Radio w/ Internet Simulcasting in 2003, hosting “Van's Crossroads”, Political Talk Show, moved show to Phoenix in 2007 and retired from AM Radio in Phoenix in 20. His expertise was interviewing politicians / candidates on Issues, Policies, with their Records vs. Rhetoric.
Van was 1st asked in 1980 to run for office, however believed his Businesses, Christian Outreach, Political Activity were “enough" and therefore declined to run in Ca..
Van was challenged again by Listeners, Tea Party, and GOP members in 2012 to come out from behind the Microphone and run against Sen. Flake, Van & Jean listened, discussed, prayed, and then decided to run as a Christian Constitutional Activist Republican, with a Basic Platform of no Compromising of our God Granted Rights.” knowing compromising the Constitution and Freedoms isn’t acceptable and must be exposed and stopped by the Career Politicians, Bureaucrats, Party Elites and Lobbyists who run most of our government.
Van believes informing Voters on the Issues with Solutions and Records vs. Rhetoric of politicians, and candidates critical to voters, and will never negotiate away Our God Granted Rights, and that True Activism is the only way to solve our problems.Van believes this will help others to run exposing how corrupt the system is, but also believes the system can still be fixed by Citizens willing to take the Heat. We don’t need compromising career politicians who surrender to the GOP Purple Establishment—you must never negotiate Our God Granted Rights away, nor limit them! Our Founders very clearly stated to give up a little Freedom for Security will soon leave you with Neither.
Take a look at Van speaking at AZ Legislature Committee Meeting, giving them some advice on how to truly represent the people, and not received very well by the Committee.

America's Creed, Is It Yours?
I believe in the United States of America as a government of the people, by the people; whose powers are derived from the consent of the governed, a democracy in the republic, a sovereign Nation of many States; a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice, and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my Duty to my Country to Love it, to Support its' Constitution, to Obey its' Laws, to respect its' Flag and to Defend it against All enemies. –Written 1917. Accepted by the United States House of Representatives on April 3,1918.
