My name is Michael C. Morris and I am a journalist and a Republican that is truly concerned with the future and welfare of this great nation. I write and read stories from everyone; both democrats and republicans know that this country is totally dysfunctional in every aspect of our Government from the Whitehouse to the local level. Greed, corruption, political agendas and total rational mental breakdowns have created a policy of lies, denials, fraud and torture and abuse. The country is completely and totally fractured.
In the general election in November you will need Republican votes to win the election as well as those Democrats votes, and to get those Republican votes you are going to have to address the concerns that we Republicans have to break the dead lock in Washington and put the country back on track To that end I have enclosed questions that I feel you must answer before I will cross party line and vote for a candidate that may not share my same concerns.
1. Iraq War: America is once again in a war with no clear obtainable goals, a national population that does not want us there and no end in sight. America already has 58,000 names on a wall that was a war with no clear goal and no end in sight, are we going to repeat history? What is your precise plan for withdrawing from Iraq including a timetable?
2. Economy: For years we all have seen the economy of the United States become a house of cards based on delusions rather than jobs. Our manufacturing has moved overseas and even most of our service sector. At this rate, the only people who will own America in 20 years will be foreigners who vacation here in our former homes. What will you do to reverse the trend in America and return our economy to stability for the long term instead of the present goal of short term profits?
3. Judicial Activism and Misconduct: For years the courts in America have been under mining the executive branch, congress and the will of the people to write into law through decisions from the bench. The purpose of these decisions is income generation into their pockets. In the process they have brought down genocide upon the Family in America, circumvented the will of the people and in one decision said it is ok to take your home if someone needs to build a shopping mall. While there are millions of complaints filed against judges and lawyers every year, very few ever get punished and most are just given the choice to retire if the offense is criminal in nature. Because the legal system has the foxes watching the weasels in the hen house chain of oversight, what would you do to put the justice back into the justice system and hold accountable those judges and lawyers who have violated the law and will of the people and just plain old right and wrong?
4. Energy: Everyone in America knows that the reason we are at war in Iraq is no WMD's or terrorism but oil. Since the 1970's we have had the ability to start moving from outside dependence or our energy needs. In the late 1990's great advances in vehicle development and electric power have been achieved. Today, with the proper investment, this country could be self sufficient for its energy needs from fuels to electric power within 5 years. What is your detailed plan to remove the US from outside sources of energy and timeline?
These four questions would be a start and if they can be answered to my satisfaction, then I can say that I would then understand that even if I did pull the lever of a Democrat come November, my concerns would be part of the overall solution for the nation.
