New answer for why to elect me for your suggestions

Voting for me creates a new party with permanent ballot status, a party that believes you own yourself, a party opposing runaway spending and corruption.

It is exactly the 25 word limit

>> I like your answer to the most urgent problem facing your jurisdiction.  It captured issues that should resonate with both conservatives & liberals.  I'm not sure if your answer to the why voters should elect you does quite the same thing however.  I don't think most voters, whether they lean to the left or right, view themselves as being treating like slaves or property of the government.  They may not be able to turn that statement into any appreciable idea about how you will help them or the city.  Perhaps something along these lines might better send that same message about self-ownership while being more accessible to the average voter & giving them an idea about how you will serve the city better than the other candidates.
>> Why should voters elect you?  I am the only candidate who believes our government is intended to work for its citizens & not the other way around.  Unlike the other candidates, I possess the ideas & the willpower necessary to wrestle the power away from bureaucrats both here & in Congress that are worried about their reelection & hand it back to the people of DC so that we may finally respond to our most pressing concerns.

>>> What is the most urgent problem facing your jurisdiction? Being taxed by the federal and District governments, while the federal government refuses to let us be represented in Congress and the DC government over rules voters initiatives (term limits etc) and delivers failing schools, failing power lines, corruption, and runaway spending. We need to throw almost every incumbent out and create new parties as well.
