If you're sick of government ignoring the voices of those whom they ostensibly represent, this is a no-brainer. If you're sick of government officials laughing off the oaths they took to uphold, defend and protect the Constitution, this is a no-brainer. If you're sick of government working to enact laws that work against the people but for government agendas and special-interest groups, this is a no-brainer. In other words, if you're sick of our corrupt government, this is a no-brainer. ”
