Taking into consideration all the partisan bickering that has brought not only our government, but our country as well to a virtual standstill, I just want to say this to my fellow Citizens Party members:
IT IS OUR TIME! EVERYONE IS TIRED OF WHAT IS GOING ON IN WASHINGTON. OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS ARE SERVING THEIR PAC'S AND SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS INSTEAD OF THEIR REAL CONSTITUENTS, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.
IT'S TIME FOR A REVOLUTION IN AMERICAN POLITICS. THE TWO-PARTY SYSTEM NO LONGER WORKS SO LET'S PULL OUT ALL THE STOPS AND SHOW THAT THERE IS A THIRD WAY - OUR WAY. OUR COMMON SENSE PLATFORM IS WHAT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE NEED. 2012 CAN BE THE RISE OF THE INDEPENDENTS AND FREEDOM FROM THE TWO-PARTY SYSTEM THAT HAS BEEN HOLDING OUR COUNTRY HOSTAGE.
WE NO LONGER HAVE 'PUBLIC SERVANTS'. THEY HAVE BEEN REPLACED BY 'CAREER POLITICIANS' WHOSE ONLY GOAL IS TO GET REELECTED INSTEAD OF SERVING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WHOSE VOTES ARE FREE.
THE REAL POWER IN THIS COUNTRY NO LONGER EMANATES FROM THE WHITE HOUSE OR CAPITOL HILL, BUT FROM K STREET WHERE THE LOBBYISTS FINANCE THE CAMPAIGNS OF CAREER POLITICIANS WHO IN TURN DO THEIR BIDDING AT THE COST OF THE AMERICAN WAY OF LIFE. SOMEWHERE ALONG THE WAY, WE LOST OUR PUBLIC SERVANTS WHO ONCE SERVED MAIN STREET, NOT WALL STREET.
WITH THESE THOUGHTS IN MIND, I WILL CLOSE WITH THIS BIT OF SAGE ADVICE FROM ONE OF OUR FOUNDING FATHERS:
I hope we shall crush in its birth the aristocracy of our monied corporations which dare already to challenge our government to a trial by strength, and bid defiance to the laws of our country.
