Biography of Don J. Grundmann from Dr. Don J. Grundmann for U.S. Senate
At the time of this writing I am a 51 year old single, with no children, Doctor of Chiropractic and Herbalist practicing in San Leandro, California.
At approximately the age of 3 I contracted asthma which I had for the majority of my youth. At one time it was so severe that my parents were told that I had 6 months to live if the condition continued as it was. I eventually spent 2 years in asthmatic hospital/home in Denver from which I returned, in improved but still afflicted health, at the age of 12.
During the time of my illness I spent many hours in the hospital and hence out of formal school but I did do a great deal of studying during that time. This was due to the fact that my parents had gotten my brother an encyclopedia set. So while I was unable to play like other children I instead read the encyclopedia from cover to cover, both through the alphabet but additionally through yearly supplements which the book company supplied.
It was through this reading that I formed, correctly or not, an inherent belief in and of the country I lived in and of the world as a whole. If you had asked me what it was I could not put it into words as I did not at the time even have a realization of its presense but in retrospect it was this – The United States is the greatest nation in the history of the world. Although history shows countless wars and crimes against humanity the United States, as a beacon to the world, will be, and will provide, the solution to all of the problems of history. Hence, without realizing it, I had a childlike faith in my nation as a mystical ” good ” of history which would defeat any and all of the ” bad ” which attacked humanity through the centuries.
