Fiorina Encourages Citizens To Take The Government Back

On Wednesday, Carly Fiorina wrote an op-ed for The Quad-City Times where she stated “Our founders designed a system that was intended to work for the people, not in spite of them. It would work because it would be led by true public servants, men whose patriotism and love of justice would overcome self-interest or short-term motive. Our founders would be outraged to see our leaders in Washington today, perched comfortably atop a broken system of their own design — one that is so big and complicated that only the big, the wealthy and the well-connected can handle it."

Fiorina went on to say that Americans are disappointed that big business and big government are united in ignoring their basic needs. She added “We have left behind citizen government in favor of crony capitalism, and the result is a government that no longer serves the people. We need a fundamental reimagining of government. We need a leader with a different set of experiences. We know that those who benefit from the status quo will never change the status quo. If someone has been in the system his whole life, he doesn’t know how broken the system is. Ours was intended to be a citizen government. So citizens – let’s take it back.” According to the latest RealClearPolitics average of samplings, Fiorina is in fifth place, among Republican presidential candidates, with 6.3 percent.
