A reader from the Volunteer State has sent us a request to publicize the person she plans to vote for.
Before I give you what she has to say, let me point out that this man has actually worked for a living. He is not an attorney and he has not lived off the government. These things are rarities in politics in the US. For these virtues alone, he’d be a breath of fresh air in Washington.
Oh…and he doesn’t seem to have been a community organizer, either.
Our reader says:
It is fitting that Mr. Kumar, an immigrant from India, should be one of the only American politicians to take a stand against Sharia, Islamic Terrorism, and the moral relativism and confusion of the loud left in our country. As one of the few rational voices on the national stage running for national office Mr. Kumar should have a fair hearing before the American people and at least the people of this Congressional District. Up to this point, he has not be given such a hearing.
Here’s his biography from the website:
Vijay was born in 1954 in Hyderabad, India, to a conservative middle class family. He studied classics, political science, and philosophy in India. In 1979, Vijay emigrated to the United States because he felt uplifted by the values and possibilities inherent in the American way of life.
In 1983, Vijay married Robin Minix, a native of Bowling Green, Kentucky. In keeping with his conservative family values, Vijay and Robin have been married for twenty-five years.
The Kumar family attends Bellevue Community Church in Nashville, Tennessee.
Robin has worked for Vanderbilt University for more than twenty years, and currently is a program coordinator for the medical center. They have one son, age 17.
Vijay is a staunch supporter of the father being an integral and ongoing presence in the family. He fervently believes that absentee fathers create future generations of absentee fathers.
From 1977 to 1979, Vijay lived in Iran, working in human resources for a European construction company. He witnessed firsthand the radical transformation of Iran from a modern nation to a repressed, fundamentalist state.

For twenty years, Vijay was employed in the insurance industry in administration and sales and marketing. For nearly three years he ran his own insurance business. Since 2005, he has been employed as a sales representative for a leading telecommunications company.
While raising and providing for his family, Vijay has been active in politics, volunteering in key positions in several successful political campaigns. His interests include political philosophy, Middle East and Indian sub-continent politics and, first and foremost, American politics. When he’s not being an active and invested dad, husband, and wage earner, Vijay enjoys traveling and nature.
From the first day Vijay set foot on American soil, he knew that he must have been born with an American soul.
Here is an excerpt from an interview with Jamie Glazov at Front Page magazine:
Kumar…Right now, our country is dealing with issues – issues like illegal immigration, healthcare reform, the War on Terror – that will shape our politics for the rest of this century. Like many Americans, I’ve grown to feel that the politicians of this country are simply not accomplishing anything on these fronts. As low as the President’s approval rating has gotten, the approval rating for Congress is even lower. So, as a concerned and informed citizen, I’ve decided to run for Congress and help put things on the right track. That’s what living in a democracy is all about.
FP:What has made you make an anti-Sharia platform the central tenet of your campaign?
Kumar:The main focus of my campaign is the War on Terror. What so many politicians do not seem to realize is that our struggle is against more than just “terror.” Terrorism is simply a method, not an end itself. Terrorism is just one tactic being used by Islamic extremists in their effort to force their way of life on the rest of the world. Ultimately, then, this is a struggle over whether the nations of this world will be ruled under Sharia law or not. As Omar Ahmad, founder of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, said: “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant.”
FP:What are your thoughts about CAIR?
Kumar:CAIR is a direct manifestation of Mohammed’s Sunna and jihad. CAIR is actually just one part of Islam’s strategy to annihilate the Western culture. It is far more dangerous than any Mohammed Atta or any other jihadists.
Lies and deceit are CAIR’s stock-in-trade. They claim to be akin to a “Muslim NAACP,” but everyone from the Department of Homeland Security, to FBI counterterrorism chiefs, to moderate American Muslims recognizes the extreme rhetoric that CAIR endorses. At least five of CAIR’s board members and employees have been linked to terrorism-related activities. They are fifth columnists, preying upon our values of tolerance and multiculturalism.
But CAIR is just one of an untold number of Islamic organizations in our government and university centers. People forget that Mohammed’s last words were to keep giving the money to kafir ambassadors and that is what Islam is doing in Washington, DC. Capitol Hill is awash in Saudi money and our dhimmi political types cannot get enough of it…
A further note: Mr. Kumar is endorsed by Muslims Against Sharia. He must be doing something right.
