Although most well known news sources are good in keeping score on the candidates which I personally view as talking heads, I ask , what difference is this than keeping score on a horse race . How are they serving our nation for Election 2008 in asking some very important questions to these Talking Heads?
Many Political News Sites and Blogs basically repeat the same news, so regardless of where ever one goes, its the same old thing: Noise.
Most opinion about each candidate is also mundane. Addressing the issues is more like which sound bite might stick !
JFK said in so many words 'that although the nation could survive, if its principles do not, then what does our nation stand for? '
Where is the Freedom of the Press that JFK said was so needed for our nation in asking questions to the candidates that are critically important for our strategic future . Which News sites, or blogs really address the blatant disregard of the constitution for the past 7 years, and what position election 2008 candidates take on this ?
These talking head candidates allude to a loyalty to the constitution, but what about how it has been disregarded, and what to do they plan do about it, if not doing anything now except tossing the US Citizen a bone. Is this how they demonstrate leadership?
What is preventing these candidates from taking an action now. They do speak of 'Change' , but what are they talking about. Most of these Talking Heads already have a position in Government, so why are they not taking a proactive position now on Restoring Our Nation ?
Are they just oblivious to how the branches of government have taken the Constitution casually. Are they willing to take a position such as about the July 17th Executive Order to shelve The Bill of Rights ? Why wouldn't they even present a Congressional Bill to restore the Bill Of Rights for consideration, or even put out a petition to gather public support since July 2007 ?
How can any candidate for that matter talk about taking care of our Vets, Health Care, Education, Jobs, Our Unions,
Economy, Trade, Environment, Energy , Transportation , Agriculture and Immigration Reform, if not even willing to assure our Bill or Rights for the dignity of the US Citizen.
Shouldn't this already be in their track record right now. If they are not willing to challenge the existing administration's Executive Signing Orders , then how can they lead our nation in 2009?
This is what the people of our nation need first before anything else. It is the Dignity of Human Rights that our United States of America stands for. It calls for the top down leadership to put the branches in order, or the people cannot be served per as stated in the US Constitution.
I challenge any of these talking heads to address this disregard of our constitution, as this truly demonstrates that their campaigns are about the people and not about themselves.
It is not a matter of 'the Road to the Whitehouse', but the 'Road back from No Mans land for our nation that we must be concerned with !
For the leadership of our nation through the trust of our people, all election 2008 candidates must first have deep regard for the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible , with Liberty and Justice for all.
