Hot-Button Issues Paving the Way for a Third Candidate

Monday, 26 September 2005 12:00 AM

The fund-raising and ballot access issues – difficult obstacles for sure – can be overcome

But what exactly are the key issues that will dominate the next national elections?

Here, in no particular order, are the main issues certain to dominate our future:

No issue is more hot-button than this – and Washington seems almost oblivious to it. The security aspect is alarming: Tens of thousands of non-Mexicans are crossing our southern border each year and ‘infiltrating' into our nation. How many of them are terrorists awaiting activation orders for some horrendous new attack?

We

This will be a

The outflow of precious American dollars to potential enemies of the United States is crazy – and we need to stop it. When we buy Saudi oil, we are not only financing these degenerate royal misfits in their private 747s but also subsidizing

We need – as previously written here – a Project Independence, a crash joint government-private industry program to accelerate the production of non-petroleum-powered vehicles. Perhaps we transition along this path with hybrids for a few years while hydrogen fuel cell cars are produced, or something else.

But whatever it is, we

This will be a hot issue as long as the price of gas at the pump and home heating fuel sap the average family of hard-earned cash.

Why can't our best scientists and brains figure out a new way to produce cheaper energy – without being dependent on our enemies?

They can – and will – especially once the American public tells them to in the 2008 election.

The debt and deficits run up by the so-called ‘conservative' Bush administration in conjunction with a so-called ‘conservative' GOP-controlled Congress border on criminal. These guys are no conservatives! They are a disgrace to their party and to their political philosophy.

We need to reduce the rate of increase in federal spending. Period! And we need to make cuts – across the board – in all this waste these guys knowingly voted for this year.

We need to get back to a balanced federal budget – like the one a GOP-controlled Congress produced in the 1990s while it opposed Clinton spending.

And we need to begin paying down the massive and ever-growing national debt, which is a huge hidden tax on us all.

We also need to dig ourselves out of debt to foreign nations, especially Red China. It is disgraceful that foreign governments are ‘owning' more and more of ‘our' nation.

It is a disgrace that this murderer has gone free since 9/11 – and that the U.S. government has refocused itself in the last four years more on Iraq than on getting Osama.

We have deposed Saddam and brought that mass murderer to justice. There are no WMDs in Iraq (if there ever were any, which is doubtful). Iraq is no longer

We have done the job. It is time to worry more about our own country.

Conclusion: these five issues are the main platform that will attract voters from

Politically, this country is in great flux: The Democrats are a nothing party that stands for nothing and can't relate to the American people anymore. And the Republicans, under President Bush and a weak Congress, have squandered a golden opportunity to change many things in America for the better. Instead, we are mired now in a sour period with no leadership.

Pollster Stanley Greenberg describes a new political phenomenon: ‘Dislodged' voters, i.e., voters who are unhappy with their own parties, are leaving them but

2008 will be a watershed period where the two parties may take a backseat to this Independent Third Candidate. And it may be the best thing that ever happened to our system: As Thomas Jefferson said, "A little revolution every now and then is a good thing."
