Promises continue to be bantered about by both parties as they pander to the electorate. They promise everything except the kitchen sink and when elected forget the promises was ever made. At the same time they take money from every special interset group hey can find. Both major political parties should be equated to orgainzed crime.
The democrats cheat, corrupt, deceive, destroy, lie and steal. But the GOP is no better. watch out if the lips are moving. Now they want to destroy your healthcare and raise your taxes. Both parties are responsible for this impending disaster.
The time has come to recover our civil rights. The time has come to end governmental intrusion into our private lives and let us live as free people with a government fully constrained by the Constitution.
The time for fence sitting is past. You are either in favor of minimal government and maximum personal freedom, or not. You are either ready to stop giving away half of your earnings, or not. You are either ready to stand up and be counted, or not. The time to vote for your liberty is now. It is time to vote your wallet.

I encourage you, the voter, to print this page and put it in a safe place. This is my contract with you. I can make this contract with you because, unlike Republicans and Democrats, I am a man of my word. I am a man of principle.
