After returning home he’s watched this country head down a path he feels flows away from what our Founding Father’s wanted and dictated in the Constitution back in 1787. The same Constitution he so proudly defended.
Frustrated at where the country is heading, Les Rayburn has yet another fight on his hands. That fight is to bring the political corruption, the special interests and social decline to the forefront and expose it to the public. He wants to tell the people that “WE ARE THE GOVERNMENT”, so stand up and take action. He fought 35 years ensuring that we the people have the final say in our government and these politicians must listen to us.Rayburn isn’t afraid to step on toes, speak his mind or challenge the status quo as long as it gets his point across and opens our eyes to the corruption before us. Rayburn classifies himself as a “Staunch Conservative” and writes about his vision of America, and political topics of interest on his website http://lesrayburn.com where anything goes.
