As I have advocate and written about, a class of politicians is around the corner. Men and Women who have served in our War on Terror and in Iraq. Strong, tactical, innovative, technologically savvy, adaptive, culturally aware, advanced weapons experts, engineers, strategist, calm under pressure and fire, seen death, proficient in medical procedure, trauma, heavy equipment, supplies, building infrastructure, public works projects in foreign lands, living within the means and confines of a situation, self sufficient, sense of duty, respect and honor, chain of command, individual thinkers, working in teams...I think ive made the point, this new class of Politician is everything our current Politicians all the way to the top are not!

Have a look and read his opening letter below
The founding principles that made our country great are under attack. Our constitution is under attack. Our free markets, our access to health care choices, our hard-earned income and our individual liberties are under attack. Our rights will not endure without those willing to fight for them.
I’m tired of President Obama and the liberals who control Congress insulting us, calling us racist, and calling us a mob. I’m tired of their double-talk. I’m tired of their bait and switch shell games. I’m tired of being avoided by my public servants. They have forgotten that they work for us.
I’m going to Washington to fight once again for my country. It is different from the battles that I fought as a United States Marine, but the goal is the same. The goal is liberty and security: security in knowing that my health will not be decided by faceless bureaucrats, security that my taxes will not increase and sink my job and my family, security in knowing that my young son will grow up in a free and prosperous nation. But I cannot do this alone. This is the time to get involved. This is a call to action.
The swing seat I am running for is occupied by a Congresswoman who rubber stamps Speaker Pelosi and President Obama’s radical liberal agenda. I stood up when the incumbent was avoiding her duties and refused to answer to her constituents regarding Obamacare. I challenged the Congress and the Administration on their blatant failures. I fought back when I saw ordinary people across this nation insulted by our own public servants. We can no longer afford to think locally. We must think and act nationally.
A new movement is quietly sweeping the nation; conservatives across the country are targeting candidates nationwide and supporting them with a goal of winning key races and taking back the Congress. Consider the current legislation on health care, government spending, bailouts and cap and trade, and you can see how every vote from every Congressional District affects you. Today I reach out to you for help and ask you to join this movement. I ask you to make a contribution of at least ten dollars.
Maybe you are in a district where you feel you can’t make a difference because of a strong incumbent or an off election year. Maybe your district has done its part and elects a responsible representative, but as a nation, we must target seats that we can win and back candidates who will make a difference. In my swing district, we hold a registered voter advantage and a Republican held the seat for twenty-two years before retiring. If we stand together and support each other across the country we can take back Congress and regain control of our government. This is our seat and together we will win it back!
Your contribution will give me the tools I need to fight and win this seat and get our country back on track. If everyone who reads this letter gives $10 we will meet our fundraising goals. Without your contribution I can do no more.
Ronald Reagan once famously said, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.” We are that generation! Either we stand now and fight for our country, or the great United States of America may be but a fading memory.
