The speaker states that: “The American Dream, our freedoms and our future are my biggest concerns right now and I intend to be an Illinois-centric representative in D.C., working on restoring our economy, our security and our Constitutional Rights, particularly attacks on our freedom of speech and religion….Middle class Americans are fed up and getting drained mentally and financially by a government intent on operating without reform or spending constraints…My work in Congress will be to embrace free and open markets, reject Communism and with your support, restore “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness”…for ALL Americans!”

In Congress, these will be my priorities:

Restore and Strengthen the Middle Class

Chad Koppie
Candidate for US Congress, IL 7th District
(vs, Danny Davis, Democrat)
Meeting # 3,780 – speaking in-person
Chad Koppie is a lifetime farmer. He grew up on a family farm that encompassed 4,000 acres in Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin. He continued farming in his adult life and currently lives on an 80 acre farm and currently rents 600 acres that he still farms.
“Chad Koppie is one of those rare honest men that will stand firm on principle - He'll stand and fight for the average American, not the priveledged class.”
The speaker states that: “The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government - lest it come to dominate our lives and interests.”

"Being a farmer is all about good sense and a no-nonsense way of looking at the world. It means that you work the soil and you make things grow. You provide for your family. And you share the richness of what the world brings you to others. That's Chad Koppie's no-nonsense way of looking at the world too.

If you're looking for an establishment career politician that will say one thing now to get elected then do another once he's in office, then Chad Koppie is not your man."
