There has been a Silence of the Issues that affect every American in one way or another. Candidates for federal offices who seek to take a peek at D.C. avoid these issues that will not go away. Either they have no position and prefer the status quo or they are afraid to lose supporters and voters. By listing some of those issues i encourage you to add more silent issues that are being avoided or pushed to the side. This list is only the tip of the iceberg.
1. CRIME. congress wears the blinders and fudges the statistics.
Some of my thoughts on this Memorial Day are with the men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice for the USA in a non-partisan way. There are no political campaigns in the military which is made up of people, both men and women, of more social and ethnic diversity then we have in the civilian sector. Just imagine a military that engaged in the social and political issues that the civilian population does each day. Through hell and high water the military has survived the hatred that some people in the civilian population have for each other. We should be proud to have two major political parties that anyone can join or not join without government interference.
Being a Republican or a Democrat does not mean that you and your party agenda is always right.
