From another Marine Vietnam vet:
Letter to the Editor -- 2010 Election November 16, 2009
Time is running out and I have heard too little about worthwhile candidates filing in many critical races for the 2010 election. This is a nationwide problem. All members of the US House and a third of the US Senate will be on the ballot in 2010. There are many state elections to be held from governor on down.
It is apparent that many office holders completely ignore the will of the people and they have done so for years just as many have ignored the Constitution of the United States. Citizens have been sold out by politicians that put their own reelection and special interest agendas ahead of constituents. Some even ahead of America and their oaths to support and defend the Constitution.
In order to rid ourselves of unacceptable office holders, we must have qualified candidates opposing them.
The deadlines for filing to run in the 2010 election approach rapidly. I write this in hope that it will reach the ears of some that will step up and run for office. If you are one, thank you! If not, please share this message with others in hope that it will find it's way to potential qualified candidates.
