First Republican to hold that office since 1953! 56 years of the same old thing.
Listen, I understand how a lot of you people feel when you say that there is no difference between Reps and Dems and that it's going to be the same
screw job with a different face. I used to think along the same lines.
I honestly believe that the new class of politicians are seeking office because they are just as fed and tired of how things are going as we are.
Given the downfall that our country has been going through for the last 10 years or so. Fighting two wars that don't seem to have an advantageous
outcome or signs of ending any time soon. Elected officials stomping on the U.S. Constitution and impeding on our rights and privacy. Our job market
and economy going in the crapper. Plus, this health care reform that is just too damn ridiculous to even believe that our government is trying to
shove it down our throats.
Some people have finally decided to take a stand against what has been going on by running for office. A new breed of forward thinking people are
running for local, state, and federal offices.
That's exactly why I am running for office, and why I have been trying to encourage other ATS members to run for their local offices. Whether
you're Republican, Democrat, Tea Party, Independent or whatever. If you're wishing for things to get better .. Do your part and make things better.
If you don't want to run for office, then support the people that are running for office that you think will make things better, regardless of
Disengage the "I hate politicians" autopilot thought processes and start supporting those people that are brave enough to fight the good fight for
We The People.
I think we're going to be seeing a younger, more honest, constitutional driven pool of candidates that want to get this country back to where we used
to be. I hope that when and if the day evers comes that I'm seeking a bigger state office or even a federal office, that there aren't people on ATS
trying to pigeonhole me into that "same dick, different haircut" category.
