Who is James Taratin?
"Who will voluntarily choose to live in a nation where the government is more powerful than its people?"
James believes that since the dawn of civilization, the greatest danger to mankind is corruption in politics. When money buys life-serving politicians and the laws favor the rich, people do not accomplish their sacred dreams. James believes that the Author of our Being put humankind on this Earth so we may transform to our supreme self, light the world from the darkness and live in a new golden age defined by unity.

Who is John Thormann?
"Overall, I want limited government and less people dependent on government. This means less laws, rules, and regulations. It means less government spending. It means less government employees. It means controlling and limiting the scope, reach and cost of the federal government into our everyday lives. We can each achieve our own form of success and greatness, set an example, and leave a legacy for generations to come in America, and around the world to follow."
John will fight for a constitutional amendment to impose term limits. John writes that the US Senate should be limited to two terms (12 years), and the House of Representatives should be limited to six terms (12 years). When elected, John writes that he would only serve two terms. According to termlimits.com, a quarter of Congress has been in office for more than 16 years. Nearly half of Congress has been in office for more than eight. Nine members have been in office for more than 40 years.
