Vice Presidential Candidates Debate

Greetings and Salutations to All my Kith and Kin and All the Ships in Outer Space:

Why is it that, in these televised national debates between candidates for President of the United States and candidates for Vice President of the United States, that only two political parties are represented?

Shouldn't the voting public be permitted to hear from an alternative or opposing view?

The Republicans and Democrats agree with each other on virtually every important contemporary issue, and neither party adheres to the Constitution of the United States.

In spite of that, I did enjoy watching the debate between Governor Sarah Palin and Senator Joseph Biden.

I thought Governor Palin did an excellent job of putting Senator Biden on the defensive, as she effectively communicated with the average American voter in her plain spoken small town vernacular, delivered with occasional winks.

But, both Governor Palin and Senator Biden agreed with the currently proposed emergency economic recovery plan, which is tantamount to instituting National Socialism (i.e., a revival of the Third Reich), something which our federal government is specifically forbidden by the Tenth Amendment.

Both Governor Palin and Senator Biden are in favor of military action in Darfur.

United States military forces are already committed in Iraq and Afghanistan, in addition to numerous other global security postings and patrols.

Just how many wars in how many separate countries do the Republicans and Democrats want the United States involved in, all at the same time?

How practical is that?

Where in the Constitution of the United States is the authority to do this?

Governor Palin and Senator Biden both articulated continuing national policies regarding Israel.

Excuse me?

Isn't Israel a sovereign independent nation?

Then why is the United States interfering in Israel's national affairs?

Israel is an ally of the United States, not our dependent colony.

Alas, when questioned about the use of nuclear weapons, I did think that Governor Palin gave a very poor response.

Governor Palin and Senator Biden both endorsed their party's goals of continuing and increasing federal support of health care and education, activities specifically forbidden to the federal government by the Tenth Amendment.

Governor Palin and Senator Biden both expressed their tolerance for homosexuality.

Isn't it time for someone to say we need to start being intolerant, for the protection of society, and society's children?

I was surprised that Governor Palin and Senator Biden were not questioned concerning their opinions regarding abortion and euthanasia.

The issue of border security and illegal immigration was never broached.

Our society's violently hostile racial polarization, aggravated by government instituted racial quotas and racial preferences was not addressed.

Governor Sarah Palin claims to be a Republican.

But, did you ever hear her say the word, "Republic", at any time?

How many times did we hear her say, "Democracy", over and over and over?

In her closing remarks, Governor Palin hoped we'd never see the day when we'd be telling our children and grandchildren about what America used to be like when we had freedom.

Well, guess what, folks?

I'm ALREADY doing that!

I'm sixty-two years old, and for years now, I've been telling young adults about an America that existed for me when I was their age, about an America that no longer exists, and about the freedoms that have been forfeited due to ignorance or apathy, or usurped by federal mandates blatantly violating the Constitution of the United States.

So, yes, I like Governor Sarah Palin.

I like her inexperience.

Her alleged lack of experience is exactly what is needed in Washington, D.C.

What we don't need is any more of those experienced professional politicians (i.e., senators bragging about their many years serving in the Senate) perpetuating the same ol' same ol' status quo.

Frankly, I'd rather see her become President of the United States than Senator John McCain.

But, why, oh why, can't we get somebody in the White House, or the Congress, or the Supreme Court, who will solidly and fervently promote and defend God, Jesus Christ, the Holy Bible, inalienable rights, and the Constitution of the United States (to include the Tenth Amendment)?

Thank you.
