BOTH OF THE PRESUMPTIVE CANDIDATES for the highest office in the land need to read and listen as to what the American citizens of this country want. We don't hear anything about the real issues that affect us in our daily lives, and, they never mention what their plans are to implement the solutions.
What about the rising taxes we're paying for goods and services to illegal immigrants, taxing our seniors' social security benefits, having already paid their dues and taxes on it? Stop taxing the meager savings of people who have money in a savings account.
Tell us more about this plan to give illegal immigrants social security when they return to Mexico? Explain the NAFTA Super Highway, a project that will gut the center of our nation linking us with Mexico and Canada; the main depot located in Kansas with Mexico in full charge of it. What about the Berth at the Port of Long Beach? The Chinese maintain this Berth and will not permit our Coast Guard to inspect or even enter within a certain distance; it's guarded by armed Chinese guards against our own military personnelhow secure and safe can our ports be if this is allowed, and what would either one of these candidates do about this?
What happened to alternative fuels and supporting this solution to our energy crisis? Brazil should be consulted on this issue, and the American people should be adequately informed of these details. Could our alternative source be sugar cane instead of corn? The south can grow sugar cane; remember the days before the Civil Wa which was once a major crop in the antebellum south. Sugar cane makes a better alternative fuel than corn. It burns cleaner and hotter.
The woeful lack of refineries is the reason we have a shortage of useable oil for gasoline, because no one wants an oil refinery in "their backyard".
Nhat about stemming the flood of illegal immigrants coming here filling entry level jobs, that used to be filled by older high school students and college students so they could earn some extra money and gain some work experience, instead of the illegals who stay on these jobs a life time making careers out of them. What about making English our national language, so we have a unifying bond, instead of a country that's increasingly becoming the historical "Tower of Babel".
What about bringing the corporations back to our shores so the American people can have jobs? What about having sizable tariffs on goods from foreign countries, so the things "Made in America" can compete with the foreign market?
Why don't the candidates tell us the real reason we're fighting for democracy in Iraq? It's because we need to be allied with them if we want to have access to an untapped source of oil; they have oil.
What do they plan to do about the "Issues of America" or are we to think that all we're interested in is their small town jibbes at each other. We need a President that wants to repair a wounded countrywe're hurting from the inside out; we have wonderful men and women dying for a great cause in a land far away. These brave soldiers are fighting and dying for something that could benefit many if the right direction is allowed to prevail.
Are either one of these two candidates up to the challenge?
