I am running as an unaffiliated independent candidate. All independents are long shots.
But ever since Ross Perot's 1992 lightning bolt presidential campaign, the American
people have increasingly identified as independents. (See Gallup Poll here.)
Many voters -- from all parties and persuasions -- are telling me how disgusted they are
by all the fighting over issues they think government should keep its nose out of. They
don’t want government telling them how to live their lives.
I couldn’t agree more. But then, you (we) have to decide just what is the proper role
of government in these times.
I favor a holistic look at some very complex questions to understand the function of
government. For me, that begins with everyone following the same rules and having
everyone at the table, not just the high rollers who are funding -- to the teeth -- my GOP
Don’t give up, folks. It’s just getting interesting.
