It is no secret that for years, our lawmakers have made connections in industry to help support their campaigns when they were running for office. Some are tied to major financial institutions, some to oil companies and some to both. Surely we are not to believe that this money is donated to our leaders’ campaigns with no strings attached! Big business supports the major political parties and their candidates so that they will receive some benefits in return. This, in part, is what has caused our national debt to climb to unprecedented levels and caused Standard and Poor’s to lower our national credit rating for the first time in almost a century.
It’s time to end the corruption that has led us into debt and begin the process of healing with candidates who truly want what’s best for our country. My run for Senate is a good place to start. If you want to be part of the solution instead of the problem, send Washington a strong message and elect David Dranikoff , the totally independent candidate to US Senate!
