I think the time is ripe for an independent populist candidate who is neither far left, nor far right...but American through and through. Someone who cares about all Americans, rich and poor. Someone who wants to take back America not for special interests, but for the common man. Someone who is not sponsored by any particular faction. Someone who is a genuine patriot. Someone who would rise above the current partisan nonsense, and get down to the reality of our problems, willing to tell Americans they are to blame, and that Americans will only get the leadership they deserve, when they start acting to put America first. Someone who both the extreme left and extreme right are afraid of. Someone who is secure in themselves, who doesn't need the limelight or power, but someone who deeply cares about America and is willing to sacrifice out of a sense of patriotism and public duty.
