Most voters know that Florida's Republican Gov. Rick  Scott  and the Democratic gubernatorial candidate Charlie Crist (former Republican governor of Florida) work for big-money special interests and against the interests of the people. This is the definition of corruption--and knowing this, they vote for them anyway!  

Congress has a 10% approval rating, yet over 90% of members are re-elected every time.  A vote for the "lesser of two evils" is still a vote for evil.  Half of the people are so disgusted that they don't vote at all. But don't think that not voting means a vote for "none of the above". Less than 25% of eligible voters elected Florida governor Rick Scott in 2010 and he sold us out to big-money special interests. How's that working out for 99% of us?  In 2006, less than 25% of eligible voters elected Republican governor Charlie Crist. How was that for 99% of us? Crist sold us out to big-money special interests--now he wants to do it again as a Democrat.

In both elections, the people who did not want either the Republican or Democratic candidates could have elected a third candidate by a landslide.

This year there is a real alternative, an independent who will veto every bill that is bought and paid for by big-money interests and voted in by corrupt legislators, and who does not answer to big money or big party bosses.  I will stand up TO special interests and I will stand up FOR the people of Florida.  Read about my economic plan, and my plans for the environment, clean water, health care, insurance, education, and more--then vote for YOUR interests, not big money's.
