Millican: the other choice

“There are a thousand hacking at the branches of evil to one who is striking at the root.” Henry David Thoreau wrote that, and I believe it is referring to my candidate for the presidency, Tom Millican—the only one who is striking at the root of America’s problems (

The freedoms of America, laid out in America’s Constitution, are worth defending regardless of the cost, and I believe it is our duty to defend them against all attackers. Our freedom …  is our inheritance from our Founding Fathers. It would be unforgivable of us if we should lose them by violence without a fight or be tricked out of them by those who dangle globalization in front of us.

How many of you have lost your jobs due to these globalists? The globalists are working toward worldwide free trade at your and my expense. You and I have paid for globalization with the loss of our jobs—the very jobs that we planned our lives and our futures around. We believed that our elected officials were looking out for our best interest, but it was only their interest that mattered.

Now they come back to us, vowing to “change.” How can we believe them, when the majority of those running are members or immediate past members of the lowest-rated House and Senate in the history of America?

Show your intelligence: Get behind Tom Millican and help him become the first citizen-president since George Washington.

— R.G. Rhyne
