Statement: We must vote independent!

Nothing will change as long as either party remains in power! They both have become part of the problem rather than the solution. Our Country is in trouble: the Nation's Credit Card is overdrawn, full, there is no more money; we are broke! We must face that fact, and we must make Washington face that fact too. This year, I realized I could remain frustrated or I could do something about it. So I have decided to run as an independent for the 1st Congressional seat in Washington State. My Platform is simple: Balance the budget and defend the constitution.

It is time to elect 435 people to Congress who are simply Americans and not professional politicians or some elite class of People who claim to have all the answers. Normal people like you and me who understand hard work, saving money, balancing their budget, responsibility, telling the truth, and common sense. I am rooted in those things because, like you, I have lived them, as a Father, Doctor, Businessman, and Retired Army Officer.

Our Elections must not be for sale! Our elected officials have acted disgracefully; they believe money can buy your Vote! We must stand up and tell them No, we are not for sale! Putting independents in office is the best way to send that message, so stand up with your vote and remind the people in Washington that we are their boss! Do not waste your vote Use It! It is time, well past time, Make a change in WA, make it loud and clear; vote independent and send career politicians home and send your friends and neighbors to WA.

It is time to send this Message loud and clear! Elect Dr. David Schirle to Congress.
