At 27 years old, I was invited to listen to a man that wanted term limits for Congress - Mr. Jack Gargan. Before that, I never gave politics a second thought. I trusted our Government completely. I went to the meeting, held in a high school Auditorium in Tampa, and for the first time in my life I became aware that all was not well for We the People. Jack Gargan was known for his organization T.H.R.O. or Thro the Hypocritical Rascals Out. He explained how our politicians served their party and their own self interest first. This opened my eyes.
