Re: Iranian Nuclear Program Conflict
11:11 am pst
Both Russia and China are in very strong positions from
which to help the international community end this
I.E. Verifiable proof of no such program, full continuous,
unrestricted access for continued security..
co-operation for the peaceful use of nuclear technology.

Why are a persons religious beliefs of potential importance for analysis in a political process or perhaps even some public
Some who are currently feeling some heat on this topic
9:21 am pst
are attempting to divert/cloud or avoid the issue
by phrasing or catagorizing this discussion as one of
religious freedom..they are being
aided in this effort by
mainstream media, who continue to avoid an intellectually
honest approach to the topic/issue.
The world is a complicated, multi faceted place..We need
political leaders who are educated, creative
firmly grounded in reality, and common sense.
We need elected officials who can demonstrate
that they are
hard wired towards being intellectually honest..
Would you vote for a leader who said "I'm
a liar, vote for
What if a candidate said, "I am a complete two faced
and I want your vote?
Would you vote someone into office who could not
demonstrate that they had a "very"
firm grasp of reality?
Or perhaps even more dangerous,..would you want to vote
a person into office
who's grasp of reality was hap hazard,
intermittent, or even sort of schizophrenic?
Decisions in these
capacities have the potential to destroy
human life, all life on a massive scale for that matter..Being
able to demonstrate a factual ability to
understand fact or fiction, historical truth versus mythical
I think are very important traits, for anyone who wants
to become an elected official, to possess.
person allows their religious interaction to alter, or
impact their perceptions, or their ability to perceive reality
a very important determinant, especially if your thinking about
giving someone a serious opportunity
to control your nations
economy, or military/nuclear forces..
Are you willing to give someone who may clearly

they could have a massive negative impact
on your personal
What about hate or discrimination? If some one belongs to a
hate group..that would certainly impact how the majority of us
would view a potential candidate..why should this process
any different just because a person attempts to hide their hate
or discrimination behind a religion? Answer:
It shouldn't be
any different, and historically it's not!
Any source of information that allows us to
fitness or lack there of, of a political candidate, must be
examined, questioned.. I also believe a
discussion, conducted in an academic fashion, on this exact
subject is absolutely critical
to the continued survival and well
being of the human race as well as the health and livability
of the planet
upon which we live and depend.

Keystone XL construction not in the nations best interest
I do not believe the construction of the Keystone XL
12:54 pm pst
pipeline segment that crosses Montana and the
river is in the best interests of the U.S.
The Keystone XL segment proposed to extend original

aspect of the project..?

Iran Government , this is for real, you will be attacked
Iran, no one here in the U.S. wants another war..
10:43 am pst
The majority of us did not want to go into Iraq,
way we did.....
It seriously had a negative impact on our being as
successful in Afghanistan as we
needed to be..
But your government has endorsed, and has allowed
public statements to be made that no
one in their right
mind would then allow, after hearing, for said government
to then gain access to a nuclear
weapon. your foreign
policy has not been based upon those processes seen
by governments seeking to build

will be allowed to develop a nuclear weapons capable

upon recognized communications for peace- equality and
Furthermore-- In my opinion, the various

At this point words alone
will not allow for their removal..
The inspectors will again, need full access, and be able to
report that no nuclear
weapons program exists, or is being
created, and that appropriate steps have been taken so
such a program will not
come into being.
I guess you have weeks, perhaps months.but that is all.
People over here are talking about
the "October Surprise".
But..since their talking about it, it lends a certain aura of
to it..no one is going to actually tell you
exactly when an attack will come..with the U.S. you "may"
hear a public statement by the U.S. saying that diplomatic
efforts have failed...
to co-operate in these matters could quickly
lead to Iran looking like Iraq, or going through a process
to what Iraq went through in a very short period of

for the good of all..let's please use this current situation

To be clear..there are currently no candidates seeking the U.S. Presidency that we support at this time
Romney, is the flip flop king.. appears willing to change his
3:49 pm pst
position, on what looks to be just about anything,
to prevail?We find his current positions offensive. ignorant,
dangerous. He appears to be Republican
candidate, frightening. There may be other dangerous failures
of intellectual honesty present, as well
as a dangerous
disconnect from reality that could be present as well..but no
one is asking the needed questions
to find out.
Gingrich, his "ego" issues are distracting and potentially
very dangerous.. Find many
of his current positions to be
offensive, ignorant.. I have found myself disturbed by the
back and forth between
Romney and himself..both sides
attack adds lack the integrity I would like to see..
Paul, I love his
positions on issues of liberty and restoration
of our lost civil rights, as well as his position statements, that
if acted upon, would go along way in restoring the Bill of
Rights to it's needed strength and vigor? But.. His economic,
and his foreign policy positions are untenable..
Ron Paul is the candidate that I feel the greatest positive
affiliation for at this time, of the Republican candidates..He is
also trying to get Obama's "Indefinite
Really did not like those "letters" from his past they dug up,
they are very disturbing.
Santorum..The myth of "global warming"? That does not say
it all but
it says enough.. unsuitable.. Is everyone listening
to his position statements on womens reproductive rights...
sounds like he does not want there to be any-period, no
contaceptives....(Santorum has indicated that he would not
allow his personal beliefs to impact a womans current access
to birthcontrol??) Just goes to show.. never count
crazy, when dealing with newer crazy.. Also/as such. Santorum
may have the same problems/issues as
Romney in the areas
of potentially failed processes regarding intellectual honesty,
as well as being able to perceive
reality.. As with Romney
though, no one is asking the questions needed to make final
Obama-- There are some things a person can do that in my
mind represents a mortal political sin if committed by any
politician connected to the United States.. one would be signing
into law any piece of legislation that codifies
the concept of
