If elected I will fight to hand government back to the citizens. I believe that the biggest problem in politics is big money and career politicians.
Since the Supreme Court decided on the cases of Citizens United, we have witnessed a tsunami of money flood and corrupt our election system. Career politicians consistently ignore their constituents. They are being bought by large corporations. This has disrupted our election system and is destroying our country.
Here in Tennessee, we can seek to limit campaign contributions from large corporations. We can increase the number of referendums on the ballot so that Tennesseans can make the choices that will affect their lives. I think we should also lead the way in setting term limits on government offices. Serving as an elected official should be a service to the state, not a career.
By instituting term limits, we can limit government corruption. Term limits also will allow more citizens the opportunity to serve and to bring about fresh new ideas.
