Summary
"In 2014, Greg Orman made headlines with his historic Independent run for the U.S. Senate in Kansas. Voters gravitated to Orman's campaign in unprecedented numbers, challenging the entrenched dominance of the two major parties over American politics. In 'A Declaration of Independents' Orman describes how hyper-partisanship, division, and a win-at-all-costs environment in Washington have created a toxic culture of self-interest that has left average Americans behind. Orman makes a persuasive case that without fundamental change, our standard of living, our status in the world, and the very existence of the middle class are at risk. His withering critique of our ruling partisan duopoly explains why voters are choosing unconventional candidates in increasing numbers -- from his own 2014 Senate race to the nation's 2016 presidential campaign. Taking direct aim at the corrupt practices that keep the two parties in power despite historically low approval ratings, Orman argues . . . that the system is rigged for the benefits of special interests who buy access to power. Drawing on his own journey to a political independence, Orman lays out a plan for taking back our government by rejecting party politics and embracing a new Independent approach." -- Dust jacket
