I am a successful American business owner with practical knowledge of international languages, European national health care, and Middle Eastern politics.

This is my message:

Dear Fellow Oklahomans—YOU are the Power:

As a Republican and an Oklahoman who supports Civil Rights and our Constitution, I pledge my support to you—Republicans, Democrats, and Independents—I am one of you. As a minority, I have been in your shoes since I graduated from the University of Tulsa in 1983 and through my toughest experience as a candidate in 2004 for State Senate District #25. Our President supports minority women and small business owners. I am walking with the power because of the spirit of (God) “I never said it would be easy, I only said it would be worth it,” Jesus told us. I am no quitter! I will persevere.

The President and First Lady recently honored Rosa Parks at her funeral as a Civil Rights pioneer. Dr. Condoleezza Rice said that if it weren’t for Rosa Parks, she would not hold the position she has today as Secretary of State. I respect our party’s principles and honor the reforms our party has made, such as: the 1964 Civil Rights Act … the 1965 Voting Rights Act … the 13th Amendment banning slavery … and, the 14th Amendment giving voting rights to blacks (minorities). [Michael Zak, Back to Basics for the Republican Party] Presi­dent Reagan said the ugliest thing anyone could do is show prejudice.). Our President George W. Bush said I don’t care where they born, I do care who they are.

I was proud that I was born and raised in Tehran, when Iran was the best friend of America (as President Regan said in 1979, “We have lost our best friend in the Middle East.) and espe­cially honored when given political asylum in 1985, and citizenship by the United States Government in 1993—I received those with great respect. More than 90% of Americans have never lived in Europe or the Middle East and do not know any other languages than their own. Most Americans do not know really what is going on there. With their big and good hearts, they believe most everything that they see on the “little box” that we call television. I do not want anyone to go through what I experienced and I do not want anyone to ever suffer what the victims of September 11th suffered.

My Dear Fellow Americans, this country belongs to all of us and we need to join together, like a strong chain, to support our country for the sake of our soldiers and our freedom. To achieve this monumental task, we should not send the wrong and negative message to the world—we do not want to damage our image and put ourselves down in the eyes of Europeans and Middle-Eastern. We do not want to give hope to and energize terrorists into killing more of our soldiers and innocent people. We definitely do not want to fail!

I support complete liberation not only for Iraq, but for the entire Middle East region. For the sake of our security, freedom, and the world, we have to give something to get back more. My heart goes out to the parents who have lost daughters and sons in the war. My heart goes out to the people who have been tortured and killed in bizarre ways and who have lost most members of their families because of ruthless dictators; my heart goes out to the millions and millions of Middle Eastern people who have cried out to God, day and night for more than 20 years. Finally, God has answered their prayers. Our First Lady went to Middle Eastern countries to help women have a democracy and become free—like us! Without security, nothing matters.

The issues of greatest concern to me, because they affect so many citizens, are as follows:

Health Care System
I am an advocate for providing the best health care system to the public with high emphasis on senior citizens. Ever since I became a health insurance provider (broker), my passion has been to insure all Americans with affordable health care, because it is the moral and ethical thing to do—not just to make money for the business. I believe it is imperative to challenge and reform our health care system with regard to physician and clinic accessibility … providing prevention and alternative treatments and benefits … educating people on healthy lifestyles BEFORE they become ill; right now, doctors are forced to rush patients through their offices, they do not have time to establish effective communications nor good rapport. Keeping attorneys busy with lawsuits is NOT a feasible way to ensure good health care—thanks to our President who signed a tort reform bill; this is no longer an issue.
As a successful business owner in the insurance profession since 1987, I have an extensive back­ground in this widely-debated market as well having first-hand knowledge of the real con­cerns facing our citizens. I have corresponded with President Bush and have worked with the government on the federal and state levels (in both parties) in an effort to better equip our policymakers with information and facts regarding national health care. Lengthy and fruitful discussions with Mr. Glover, Speaker Pro Tem (D), and Laura Boyd, State Representative (D), led to my preparing materials in anticipa­tion of our former First Lady Hillary Clinton’s visit to our state in 1994 when she campaigned for her health care plan, which would have been wrong for our country. As Presi­dent John F. Kennedy said, “Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your coun­try.” I did my part as an individual and I am grateful for Mr. Glover’s and Ms. Boyd’s responses and acceptance of my opinions based on my knowledge and experience in the health care insur­ance arena. If we sit back and ask that our Governor or President does everything for us, WE ARE ASKING FOR SOCIALISM. So we need to work together. My vision and ability to persuade people when I recognize what is the right thing to do, is a gift from God.
I am a member of NAIFA (National Association of Insurance & Financial Advisers) and TAHU (Tulsa Asso­cia­tion of Health Underwriting).

Tax Cuts
I believe that permanent cuts can provide more jobs for Oklahomans and the country as a whole. My nickname is “Fair” and my middle name is “Discipline” (fair taxes, fiscal discipline). I have two sons who left our state because business opportunities were better elsewhere. With tax cuts, business can grow and more jobs will be provided.

Energy & High-Tech
We need to reduce our dependence upon foreign oil … and since we receive 60% of our oil from other countries, we must continue development of new technology and continue our search for new energy resources within the United States.

Marriage, Family, Parenting & Education
We must enhance parenting skills to prevent children from facing current problems; improving educa­tion stan­dards can provide our children with great future opportunities. We have to prevent dysfunctional families and that starts with the right marriage. We may consider wanting to challenge our educational system regarding math, homework, reading, spelling, and public educa­tion, to have more knowledge about the foreign countries—importing, export­ing, economics, lan­guages, geography, and history—and choosing their base major in the 9th grade like in Sweden, Iran, and other European countries. Not everyone needs to go to college if they have a good education in high school or can become a technician. Concerning teachers—some may need to be re-evalu­ated … some of them may need more education … some may need to be trained … and some may need counsel­in (e.g., regarding the problems of sex with their students). We should offer teachers and schools more rewards through healthy competition to further their knowledge and effectiveness. Parents, teachers, and the schools need to work together for the sake of our children’s future and success.

Social Security
For the sake of our young and new generations, we need to reform our Social Security to give them the opportu­nity and free choice to invest part of their Social Security in secure government investments. They should be able to keep their Social Security for retirement and pass it on to their heirs—not give it to the government!

Regarding our problem with the Mexican border—since those poor people need to come to our country (land of opportunity) and make some money, and since our businesses need economical hard workers, and since we also need to protect our country from terrorists and drug dealers, here were/are my comments: We need very strong immigration rules and regulations, with the cooperation of Mexico’s leader who can discipline and educate his people to know that they could come to the U.S. based on their needs and honesty, and would have to meet all U.S. immigration guide­lines. Otherwise, they would be faced with harsh consequences. For the people who are already here illegally, working and trying to further their careers, we should provide legalization and give them the opportunity to succeed as long as THEY DO NOT HAVE A CRIMINAL BACKGROUND. Otherwise, they must be deported.

Public and Private Environmental Issues
We must make more efforts to prevent unnecessary injuries, diseases, and sicknesses as well as preserve nature’s delicate balance—this will greatly improve our environment and also lower our health care costs. In order to achieve this task, it is imperative to educate, properly train, support, and guide those who are involved.

I am very proud of my active role in service to the community: I have served on the Mayor’s Task Force regarding issues pertaining to parenting, as well as public safety and environ­mental con­cern. Certainly with 9-1-1 in America’s history, public safety issues are at the forefront of our future planning.
I have practical knowledge of international languages … Europeans’ national health care system, policies, lifestyles, inflation (Europeans pay over $3 for a liter of gas, $6 for a loaf of bread, and $40 for a medium-sized pizza, and $16 for raw chicken in Russia) and government control. And I also have practical knowledge of Middle East religions, customs, economics, and politics.
I worked for an international Iranian oil company.
I was employed as an operations clerk on computers and as an administrative assistant in the United States; I was also a supervisor/teller over banking operations.

My principles are based on honesty, integrity, morality, forgiveness, and love of people. I am conser­va­tive in my beliefs regarding marriage and family, and I raised my children with the same values. The result of my forty years of marriage is my two adult sons. I am proud to have their devotion and support. My older son grew up in England and attended Cimbolton School in Cambridge; he later graduated from the University of Tulsa and married. My younger son, attended American School in Teheran Iran and graduated from Cascia Hall Preparatory School, attended Oklahoma State University for two years and earned his degree from the University of Tulsa; he is also married, and they are the parents of my two adorable, intelligent grandsons, I believe that every citizen should have quality education, as my sons received.

I began attending the Church on the Rock and the Church of the Living God and found Christianity. I am a 16-year member of East­wood Baptist Church and draw strength, patience, and endurance from God. I also participate in activities of the Victory Christian Center and became Member since “God uses trouble to teach us to trust; troubles produce patience and patience produces character and character produces HOPE.” Romans 5:3-4.


* I support the fight against corruption, over-spending, and would use that money for health, education, parenting, and the people who need it the most.
* I support Civil Rights, and our Constitution, to bring equality, unity, Democracy and freedom for peace.
* I support human rights, human dignity, competitions, women movement, and KEEPING English the official language of our Country.
* After 40 years the dreams of Dr. Martin Luther King need to become a reality under our President George W. Bush leadership. “If Rosa Parks could do it I can do it too”.

My Promises to you, fellow Oklahomans:

I won't make false promises to you regarding our government.
I never leave my audience (whom I invite to hear me) without answering their questions.
I don’t show preference to friends over my audiences or citizens.
I will not use voter money for fancy and colorful fliers over and over for my own campaign or other occasions.
I will respond to your requests, opinions, and complaints.
I never let anyone dictate to me what my issues are.
I always tell you the truth even though sometimes it is not pleasant.
I am not after title or money.
I feel that this is my mission.
People, who have known me for almost 28 years, “in Tulsa”, know my passion for the children and understand my deep desire to serve and help others.

Due to the very unfortunate incidence, citizens in my district were unable to get my message

And my campaign website has been hacked.
