It is not Congress; it is us, the voter that needs to change.
Why you should vote Independent
Texas 23rd U.S. Congressional District, June 14, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- An open letter to the voters in Texas' 23rd US Congressional District
Dear Texas 23rd Voter,
I believe we get the government we deserve.
This is proven by the fact that Congress has stolen our future, the future of our children, and is currently working to destroy the sovereignty of the United States of America; and this is happening because we've allowed it to happen.
This must be true; otherwise they would have been voted out of office years ago. So, if we do not change the way we choose our candidates and stop allowing them to lie to us and abuse us, then the government will not change.It is not Congress; it is us, the voter that needs to change.
I am the Independent Candidate for the US Congress' Seat in Texas' 23rd District and this is who I am and what I believe.
I do not want your money. I do not accept campaign contributions. I will not accept any pay when elected, and I will not accept any retirement for my congressional service. Service is a duty to your nation, not a way to line your pockets.
I love this country, I've fought for this country and I'd fight for it again (I'm fighting for it now). I am a U.S. military veteran, a combat veteran, a husband, a father, a citizen and a business owner.
I believe party politics is destroying our nation and that the party has become more important than the citizens.
I've watched as the Republicans beat the Democrats while our national debt increased and our liberties were legislated away. Then the Democrats beat the Republicans, and our national debt increased while our liberties were legislated away. Nothing changes because they are the same party with the same agenda. You do not need a political party between you and your government; an Independent represents you, not a political party.
In 2006 I predicted the National Debt increase, and today I'm predicting the death of our sovereignty. The Security and Prosperity Partnership, a trade agreement between the U.S., Canada and Mexico, calls for courts outside of the U.S. to decide our trade practices. This is being done to allow cheap labor to move across our borders, increasing the revenue of Corporations while destroying the livelihood of the American Working Class. Congress did not approve this partnership and is not providing oversight; it is largely managed by select government officials and 30 large corporations!
Ask yourself, why did we spend billions dollars building China into our largest trading partner instead of looking to Central and South America? Why are we not taking care of our neighbors? Wouldn't this help solve our illegal immigration issues? The answer is: It would have destroyed the flow of cheap labor across our southern border. We are seeing the beginnings of economic slavery. The congress has spent the nation into the poor house, and now you have to pay the bill. Our yearly income tax now only pays the interest on our National debt, we are no longer receiving services for the taxes we pay. My granddaughter will be born in July and the day she is born she will owe the U.S. Government $100,000.00. What is your piece of the debt?
Our current Congress just passed a law called the National Defense Authorization Act. This Act empowers the US Military to arrest American Citizens! If this does not concern you, ask yourself if you can think of a single instance of empowering our government where they did not abuse that power. Then ask yourself if this is Constitutional?
These are the questions that keep me up at night: Why are children in this country going to sleep hungry? Why can't our seniors afford to heat and cool their houses? Why is medical care and prescription drugs unattainable to a large percentage of our citizens? Why are our graduation rates for High School plummeting? Why is gas so expensive? Why can't qualified people find jobs? Why are thousands dying on our southern border? Why is college so expensive? Who is winning the war on drugs? What purpose does the Department of Education serve? Why does a private company control the creation of money in our country? What is the Federal Reserve doing for us that a government agency (US Treasury Department) couldn't do?
It's time to tell Congress and all political parties that we will no longer allow them to destroy the American Dream.
I need your help to stop these perversions. I will not accept your money, but I will accept your assistance. If you are willing to support me as the Independent Candidate for the U.S. Congress in Texas' 23rd District, please visit: www.letsfixcongress.com or Let's Fix Congress on Facebook or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get back to you immediately, time is short.
