ather than voting for the lesser of two evils on election day please consider voting for Independent candidate Dr. Brandon Dodds. He is an optometrist from Newbern, Tennessee, where he and his wife are raising their three sons. He believes that both parties have turned their backs on God and the Constitution and that we are paying dearly for it as a people. Economy: He will simplify, reduce and eliminate the taxes that are killing our economy and driving industry overseas, making our state a magnet for high paying jobs. Pro-Life: He will support a referendum allowing Tennesseans to decide to protect the right to life. States’ Rights: He will use the power of the 10th Amendment (any power not given to the federal government belongs to the state government or the people) to protect our state sovereignty. Health care: He will stop ‘Obama care’ by using the 10th Amendment and fix our health care problems the right way. Immigration: Believes we have been sold out by the federal government and both parties on this issue. He will address this catastrophe at the state level. 2nd Amendment: He will not let the right to keep and bear arms be infringed upon. Schools: By law, education is a state and not a federal power. He will remove the federal government from our schools and develop a world-class education system where every child is taught to their fullest potential (rather than mandating them all to perform equally on a standardized test).

Mark the box by my name on the ballot. Vote Brandon Dodds for Governor on Election Day, November 2, 2010!
