I’m one of you: I’m not a politician. I work hard to earn a living, but with our economy, taxes and jobs, I see how a runaway national debt has destroyed us. And I don’t see anyone fixing it. Instead, I see the usual bickering between party candidates and politicians. That’s why I’m non-party. I’m the voice of 40% of independent voters who left party politics, who demand solutions, and who search for a candidate they can vote for. I’m one of you: put me in Washington so we can put government back in the hands of the people!
—Scott A. Rupert, independent Candidate, United States Senate for Ohio
