One definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different outcomes. Democrats and Republicans in Congress seem to spend all their time yelling across the aisle at each other, playing partisan games, then wondering why the real problems do not get solved. Budgets don’t get passed and gridlock is a way of life in Congress. This must change.
The undersigned, former opponents and party warriors, think that the upcoming election offers a way to push back against the destructive extremism that has come to dominate both political parties. We write to urge the election of Greg Orman as an Independent Senator with the ability to stand in the middle and find actual solutions.
Greg Orman is an independent businessman who has made a career of bringing people together to find the best ideas and then implement them. Good ideas are not the exclusive property of either political party. As an Independent Senator, Greg Orman will choose the best solutions without having to answer to a political party. He will answer to the people.
This election represents an opportunity to take bold action which will fix the mess in Kansas and also send a reverberating message to complacent, unresponsive, irresponsible incumbents across the Nation. Orman’s election in Kansas will give incentive to overly partisan incumbents to clean up their act, not just for their own survival, but for the good of our country.
Please join us in this effort to elect a new type of Senator for Kansas, Greg Orman, independent problem solver.
