There are 14 elections in Nevada this year that the Republicans and Democrats would lose if everyone eliminated those 2 parties and voted for another candidate.
These would be the results:
Nevada would have one U.S. Senator and four Congressmen that would be neither a Republican nor a Democrat.
Nevada would have three State Senators and four Assemblymen who were neither Republican nor Democrat.
Clark County would have three Commissioners who were neither Republican nor Democrat.
These results would make headlines everywhere. It would send a message that the people have had enough. The Democrats and Republicans would take notice. They would realize that they cannot play good cop, bad cop with the people any longer. They would realize that the people will vote them out and elect candidates from other parties.
Would it be the end of the Republican and Democratic parties? Would it be the end of our state and our country just because another party had won these elections? No, but it may just save our state and our country. Maybe the Federal and State Legislatures would remember their oath of office and uphold the Constitution. Maybe they would put the people and our country first instead of putting their party first. Maybe they would stop wasting our tax dollars on parties and trips. Maybe they would actually do something about our debt instead of continuing to increase it.
The two party system has failed. We need more choices. In the 2008 elections, many people wanted Hillary Clinton for President, others wanted Barack Obama for President, others wanted Ron Paul for President, and still others wanted John McCain for President. In addition, there were four other candidates who ran for office. What would have happened if all these people had run for office? How many people felt they were voting for the lesser of two evils?
Einstein said that the definition of insanity is “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” Isn’t it time to do something different? The Republicans and Democrats have had control of our legislature for over 100 years. How is that working out for you?
We are over 15 trillion dollars in debt with no end in sight. The economy is in shambles. People are losing their jobs, losing their homes, and losing their hope. More people are living in poverty than ever before. We are losing our freedom, our liberty, and our independence.
We are searched and groped at the airport. We can be arrested and imprisoned without a trial. We can be strip searched without being convicted of a crime. Laws are being passed that are unconstitutional. We are working over four months out of the year just to pay our taxes! This should not be happening in America.
Our forefathers risked their lives to found this county and give us freedom, liberty, and independence.
Our veterans risked their lives to protect this county and our freedom, liberty, and independence.
You only have to risk your vote to save our county and our freedom, liberty and independence.
Your vote is your shield to defend the Constitution. Your vote is your weapon to protect our state and country. Your vote is your way to save the future for your children and grandchildren.
You can make a difference. Don’t just complain. Do something. Get involved. Learn what is happening. Be an independent Nevadan and most importantly, VOTE!
