Sharron Angle: Federal Government In Crisis, Corruption Is Rampant (VIDEO)

Nevada Republican Sharron Angle, who made an unsuccessful bid to unseat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid last year, spoke about her political ambitions and her new book Right Angle during an appearance on NBC's "Today" show on Friday.

While she didn't offer specific details, the Tea Party favorite signaled she could run for office again.

Angle also reflected on her campaign against Reid and addressed a question she raises in her book asking whether the Nevada Democrat stole the highly-contentious race.

In excerpts of Angle's book published online by NBC, the Nevada Republican discusses why she decided to run for Senate last year and her attitude toward the federal government.

"Today's federal government is in crisis. Corruption is rampant," she writes. "Congress represents special interests instead of the wishes of the people that elected them. At both the state and federal level, there is ignorance, disregard and, even more threatening, a desire to rewrite the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Can America recover from the downward spiral of debt, immorality and 'good-old-boy' power-for-paybacks corruption?"

Angle calls for "drastic measures" to change the political trajectory of the country.

"The 'Silent Majority' can be silent no longer," she writes. "We do not have the option or the luxury to sit on the sidelines. Transition means a grassroots movement with grassroots leadership."
