End the Political Polarization! Elect Moderate Pragmatic Candidates

Who is Sean Hayes?

Sean believes that our recent problems are not caused by the people, but our degenerate, corrupt and polarizing politicians that care about their own interests and not the interests of the people. ​ Our Politicians Brought Us Apart and Political Outsiders Shall Bring us Back Together We need politicians in the mold of JFK and Eisenhower. The Democratic Party moved far Left, while the Republican Party has lost focus on its founding principles. The Democrat Party promises the world to cites and delivers little, while the Republicans see no hope left in the major Democratic-leaning cities and, thus, abandoned these cities. We need a change. We need Independent Candidates not beholden to these political elites. We need politicians that will standup to the self-appointed political and business elites and fight for middle ground. Politics does not need to be a winner-take-all political game. ​ Sean Hayes' Profile Sean is a 47-year old Irish-Italian first-generation American. Sean's father immigrated from Ireland and his maternal grandfather learned English via the public school system. Sean is rated a Top 100 lawyer; one of the Top International Lawyers in the world; and he was, recently, head of a team that was rated the top Dispute Resolution Law Firm for disputes in Asia.
