It is no secret the United States has become dangerously divided. Politicians on BOTH sides of the aisle no longer seem to stand for something, but instead are more focused on standing against the other side. The only thing they seem to agree on is an open flow of money from special interests and corporate donors that has corrupted our democracy.
The outcome? Very little is accomplished on behalf of the American people. The biggest issues of our time get kicked further and further down the road.
There is a better way forward – we have far more in common than Washington wants you to believe. We don’t live on the political extremes; most of us fall somewhere in the middle. We share a lot of common ground. More importantly, we share a responsibility to unite our communities, to protect our health and environment, to build a better future, and put people and our country over party politics.
It is time for Independent thinkers outside the two-party system to step up to the plate. It is time to restore respect, common sense, and a collaborative strategy to the government. It is time to send a voice that represents the people, not special interests or party bosses, to start creating real solutions to our country’s problems.
It is time to elect Independent Nick Thomas to Colorado’s 2nd Congressional District.
