Divided & Conquered or United & Free
My name is Drew A. Layda and I am running to be your next US House Representative for Oregon’s 1st Congressional District. My campaign is unlike any other congressional effort underway nationwide, or in our Union’s history for that matter.
This is because I have received the co-nomination of both the Libertarian and Green parties. That’s right, my campaign spans a wider gap than that separating the Democratic and Republican parties. You may be asking yourself how such a broad-reaching US Congressional Campaign became possible.
The answer is simple, people across the political spectrum have reached a breaking point with predatory partisanism. People know predatory partisanship is the speciality of the duopoly parties conspiring together, with each aspiring to rule our polarized ashes. We have become politically manipulated to the point where we have been ruthlessly attacking the other victims of it; our families, our friends, our neighbors.
This is unacceptable. Left-Right brawls come as clockwork in the downtown of my beloved City of Roses. Fellow common folk have become convinced that they have less in common with the other people on the street around them, than they have with political elites on Capitol Hill or in the Oval Office. I refuse to believe that, it will NEVER compute to me. This is because I’ve met so many of you in our district that WANT cooperation, that WANT reform, that WANT a fairer tomorrow for themselves and their posterity. We WANT to be United and Free, not Divided and Conquered.
I have always known that what made the United States of America great was that people of drastically diverse backgrounds were willing to set aside their differences and work together to defend each-others common rights. That’s what it took to found our nation, that’s what is needed to fix the cracks in that foundation. We the People are the foundation of the United States - despite what you are led to believe.
I am the Universal Alternative to the entrenched elites who have done this to all of us, and will do even more to us tomorrow if we let them.
I may be the candidate running for office, but this is your race too. It’s your chance to send a message that will be heard loud and clear all the way in Washington D.C.
To do this we will need your vote, your volunteer effort, your support and your donation to help us reach as many Oregonians in our district as we can. This is a people driven campaign for a people driven cause. Together we can help America be United and Free, and defend ourselves from those set upon seeing us divided and conquered. Only Together.
Your neighbor Drew
The recovery starts here. There are many issues facing us as a Union of People, some are symptomatic, one is causal. The root cause of the issues facing the people is the corruption of the checks and balances designed to ensure our government stayed true to it’s originating design - to protect the rights and liberties of the people, and when possible expand them.
Nowadays, citizen rights, liberties, and their consent to be governed has became a secondary, even tertiary, concern to those wielding power ceded by the very people whose rights they ignore. This has been our trajectory since the people, coerced of their ownership, allowed interests of their Represenatives to be considered more "special" than they were.
There is no interest more special than the people, the people should be the sole interest of their Representatives.
