I read a book about 8 years ago about a man who was so frustrated with the government being corrupt that he began assasinating senators who he felt were corrupt and every time he did, he would send a letter that quoted the Declaration of Independance or the Constitution (I don't remember which) in saying that "when the government no longer works FOR the people, then it is the responsibility of the people to take over the government and establish a new one. If I remember right, the sniper was an ex-Navy SEAL, and the book ended up with a huge conspiracy and he was never caught. Please help me find this book, I have tried everything. The book was written by a man, and the main character was a man.

Hello. I believe that your book was "Term Limits" (1997) by Vince Flynn. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0965851001/ Excerpts from various reader reviews on Amazon.com: "....Former Navy Seal leads mission to eliminate corrupt politicians. Some good logic. He's been involved abroad with missions eliminating enemies of the United States. Why not eliminate politicians who are in effect enemies at home?" "...I suspect that not all the events are plausible -- particularly the scene toward the end of "Term Limits" wherein the former Navy SEAL fellow commits murder right under their noses." "...I mean, does anyone REALLY believe that a handful of former Navy SEALs would plot to kill prominent politicians because they refuse to cut spending and balance the budget? Yet that is the central premise of this book."
