Statement: We the People are the sovereign in this country, not the politicians and not the bureaucracy. The people need to take back control of our country. Politicians should work for us not the special interest groups. Term limits and campaign finance reform are in order. Larry Carter and I believe we need to get to get the government out of our homes, out of our pocket and off our land. We are running a grassroots campaign. Support us by telling everyone about us. This is the greatest country in the world, let's keep it that way.
