Unfortunately, the "birther" issue was only relevant for those wishing to occupy the White House. As for the American people and the Republic in general, it would not have resolved any major issue. The best case scenario for the "birthers" would have meant Joe Biden taking over from an impeached Obama, which would have changed almost nothing except the quality of late night comedy.
There are, however, serious questions that need to be answered which no candidate or the the traditional media goes near less they be accused of treachery by their corporate masters. It's time that the People created the agenda and demanded thorough and convincing answers. They have no qualms about using their power, and we shouldn't have any about using ours. How many candidates have the integrity and stomach to demand answers to these questions?
When Osama Bin Laden was located by highly trained commandos he was unarmed and with a female companion. He could have been apprehended, brought to the US and tried. After 10 years of war, the American people deserved to see the Government's case tested in court yet you denied them that right and had Bin Laden killed on the spot. Why?
Mr. President, you are a Harvard trained constitutional attorney but you have denied the right of habeas corpus to the two alleged intellectual authors of the 9/11 attacks, Khalid Sheik Mohammed and Osama Bin Laden. By doing so you have avoided a fair, open and public trial of these men and the government's case against them.
Reasonable people can have reasonable doubts regarding the events of 9/11 and their aftermath.
Considering the immense consequences of the crimes these men are alleged to have committed it's unnacceptable that the State's case has never been openly challenged in a court of law. Osama Bin Laden denied having had taken part in these atrocities, and the other author, Khalid Sheik Mohammed, confessed under torture.
Did your decision serve the interests of "The People" or the interests of the massive military and intelligence bureaucracy?
The War in Iraq is the largest conspiratorial hoax in US history. In the wake of 9/11 the American people were lied to in order to carry out a foreign policy agenda formed long before these horrible terrorist attacks were committed.
Key members of the Bush Administration, major media outlets, and both political parties promoted and supported this war claiming weapons of mass destruction and connections between Saddam Hussein and 9/11, all of which were lies. The arguments for this war were obfuscations for which the authors have yet to face any consequences.
The war in Iraq has cost countless lives, misery and money yet as a nation we don't know why it was fought, who benefited or what the consequences are for the perpetrators of this horrific hoax.
Mr. President, why did we fight this war, who benefited and what are the consequences for those who instigated it?
The enormous power of the Federal Reserve to create new debt based money and monetize old debt with very limited democratic checks falls far outside the Constitutional framework for monetary policy. The Federal Reserve is devaluing the dollar, causing commodity inflation and political upheavals. Not since its creation in 1913 has there be so much controversy regarding the power, influence and constitutionality of The Federal Reserve.
The Federal Reserve, under the mandate of Benjamin Bernanke, is enriching banks and destroying the dollar at the expense of the American people. A strict, originalist interpretation of the Constitution would certainly never admit a privately held Federal Reserve to manage the national currency.
Does The Federal Reserve serve the interests of the banking cartel to the detriment of the People or do you support the Feds control of our currency and monetary policy?
The Time is Now
In 2004 the American people DID not ask the tough questions and 2008 was no different. We have two choices as a people; we can continue to exchange our liberty for their bread and circus or we can end the corporate/banking/political charade and restore our Republic. Isn't it time that we turned the political entertainment into the grilling of lifetime for those in power?
Every candidate for Federal office should be obligated to give a thorough, clear and direct answer to each of these questions.
Demand answers. Only if we act will we get results.
