My name is Virgil Bierschwale
I grew up in central Texas in a small town called Harper.
When I was 17 I went overseas and worked in the oil field in Port Gentil Gabon, West Africa and spent my days off in Las Palmas in the Canary Islands.
I returned to Texas and got my G.E.D. at Schreiner University in Kerrville and then joined the Navy where I served onboard the USS W S Sims FF-1059 as a Radioman. During that time I made about 5 Mediterranean cruises and several Caribbean cruises.
After the Navy I worked as an electronics technician and when computers came on the scene, I taught myself how to program them and began travelling nationwide as a software contractor working on all types of projects.
I never went a day without work during those years from 1976 to 2003.
In 2003 I suddenly found it nearly impossible to find work even though I had the skills our businesses said that they couldn’t find.
In 2007 I founded the website Keep America At Work and I began to hear from other software types like myself and we began working together to understand what was happening and why we could no longer find work.
What we uncovered was the wholesale selling out of our American Citizens future by companies who sent their jobs to other countries and imported non-immigrant guest workers to take their jobs here in America leaving only low skilled, low paying jobs left for our American citizens with zero opportunity to build a better life for their families.
I believe this is wrong, so I’m going to do my part to Keep America At Work by making sure that President Trump honors his Make America Great Again pledge by putting American citizens at the head of the line.
I could use your help making this happen.
For those that want to educate themselves on the subject, I recommend the following books:
- Outsourcing America by Ron Hira & Anil Hira
- Billions Lost by Hilarie T. Gamm
- Sold Out by Michelle Malkin and John Miano
- Who Stole The American Dream by Hedrick Smith
- The Race To The Bottom by Alan Tonelson
While you are thinking about this, ask yourself this question.
What makes a common man pursue a office like the U.S. Senate?
My answer can best be described by the following.
The policies Senator Cornyn is pursuing by putting India at the head of the line is denying all of us the ability to build a better life for ourselves.
Isn’t it time that we put Americans, and here in Texas, Texans first?
