Other Stuff:

  When our Founding Fathers envisioned our government, they were tired of being governed by a King and a Parliament that ignored their pleas and took liberties away.  They created three branches of government, consisting of citizens elected by the people to represent their views.  Today many congressmen are career politicians who have been in office for years.  Instead of fighting for their constituents, they fight for their own personal interests.  We are tired of government acting as Masters instead of Servants.  FIRE the career politicians!  DO NOT VOTE FOR INCUMBANTS!!

  Robert Ripp, Town of Oyster Bay Whistle Blower, is running for Town of Oyster Bay Supervisor in his fight to end corruption in government.
