Peter White for Congress

A significant majority of the  nation's voters have lost respect  for the current administration and the sitting congress. Nearly all  the incumbents are viewed as having been bought by big donors who  expect payback. Even officeholders whose votes we often approve  knuckle under to party pressures or special interests on issues that  would crimp their campaign coffers.

There are very few in the mould of Paul Wellstone or James  Jeffers. Reliable voices for social justice being so rare, we in the  10th Massachusetts District are fortunate to have the option of  voting for an Independent congressman. No corrupting big donors will  be trying to purchase his political agenda. They would strike out if  hey tried. Wouldn't it be refreshing to have an advocate for  legislation that benefits all of society.

Peter White has been a lifelong voice for moral, ethical  government at all levels. If his voice was heard in the halls of  congress it would command widespread attention. We could be proud of  our vote if we used our franchise to to support a candidate who is  not compromised by politics as usual. This is a rare opportunity to  signal our wish to see idealism triumph over politics as usual.
