WISH LIST FOR SAVING AMERICA FROM ITS PROBLEMS IN 2008
Millions of Americans made New Year’s resolutions at the stroke of midnight this week. They decided to improve themselves for a better future for their health, wealth and well being. They decided to lose weight, spend less, save more, stop smoking, give up drinking or be kinder to their spouses.
Did anyone formulate any resolutions for making our country a better place for its citizens? I’ll bet you did! Yours may prove more articulate than mine. If so, by all means, send them to me so I can make a better wish list.
We must move away from One World Government that proves as distasteful and illogical as multiculturalism or communism. We must find out and correct why 2.2 million of our citizens sit in prisons. We must rebuild our bridges and roads in our country instead of spending $2 billion a week building Iraq. We must enhance our educational system instead of stealing brain power and students from other countries. That in turn, steals leaders and future advancements from other countries. We must address our $8.7 trillion debt and pay it off. We must stop our $700 billion annual trade deficit. We must stop H-1B, H-2B and
L-1 visas that allow millions of our jobs outsourced, insourced and offshored. We must stop Congress from destroying our manufacturing base which destroys our quality of life, jobs and standard of living. We must address why and change the family crisis in America’s Hispanic and African-Americans whereby 50 to 60 percent of them birth children out of wedlock and 50 to 60 percent of them fail to graduate from high school. If we fail to find the answers to educating our citizens of every race, creed and color—we will not survive a new, exploding underclass of ubiquitous poor. We must elect leaders who return to the U.S. Constitution and the rule of law. Finally, whether you like it or not, believe it or not, or think it’s man-made or not, we must address climate change as the greatest threat to humanity and all living creatures on this planet. What’s pushing climate change to its ultimate extremes? We must deal with our own human numbers adding over 77 million people to the planet annually.
We cannot suffer another George Bush-type presidency nor a Congress mired in scandal and ongoing paralysis while our kids die in a fruitless, immoral and pathetically useless war in Iraq.
I hope we vote every incumbent out of Congress because most of them prove more worthless than productive. In the movie Charlie Wilson’s War, Julie Robert’s asked, “How come all you people in Congress mostly don’t get anything done most of the time?” Tom Hanks playing Charlie Wilson replied, “Tradition my dear.” We need fresh, new minds that respond to 21st century challenges with 21st century ideas.
I hope average, lazy, 50 percent of non-voting and apathetic Americans
get off their fat rear ends and vote for a president that leads and
Congressional representatives who show courage, intelligence and passion
toward this country, our challenges and ideas for a positive American
