    I was beginning to lose faith in all our government-elected officials until I saw this video; I wish our representatives would stand up for what is right and fair – no matter the consequence. Money, power, revenge…. these seem to be the ideals of our so called “leaders”. What an earth shattering moment when I discovered that someone might actually have integrity and is not afraid to stand up for what is right. True leadership does not destroy, and our country is losing its status in the world because of what we are seeing and experiencing today.

    Jeff Jackson is a man I will be watching and I hope there are other young leaders waiting to turn this nation around.’

    What we need is more people who specialize in the impossible.
