Why should voters choose you in this election?

A recent interview I had with The Post and Courier title "With only meager opposition Clyburn stumping for (president) Obama this year." The reporter writes with no republican and the only challenger a habitual Green Party hopeful. Howbeit, I am not running to get votes, but to wake-up the ordinary voter to what's going on in their government and to offer some real solutions. Beside if I won this election, I would likely become another "Corporate Tax Framer" just like Clyburn and not the true advocate for truth and justice. And lastly, "He who take nature as his guide is not easily beaten out of his argument." 

As a 'Citizen Soldier,' I spent the last 16 years fighting for the principals of truth and justice. Irony, the issue that inspired me to seek public office was an article in The State newspaper title "Housing Secretary brings $25.8 millions, reassurances on Saxon Homes future." In the article Clyburn is quoted, "No cross, no crown" Clyburn told the crowd of about 200; "We are about to bear a cross, but in the end there's going to be a crown for this community." The crown has been an increase in the city homeless and from my investigation I could only found six family that returned.

As a student of philosophy, I sum up with this lesson taken from Ralph Waldo Emerson, where he writes 'This is to be done in our smooth times by speaking the truth. Checking this lying hospitality and lying affection. Live no longer to the expectation of these deceived and deceiving people with whom we converse...........Henceforward I am the Truth.
