My letter to the editor my local paper
True Patriots ask Questions

For those contemplating the actions of our administration over the last few years I would respectfully recommend researching a few things which may help you to make a fair and balanced analysis. The mainstream media and some editorialists seem to have the tendency to conveniently leave out a few important facts regarding the background of the true right wing agenda. Take for instance, the Office of Special Plans. Have many of us ever heard any information regarding the intelligence cherry picking operation of this agency? I didnt think so. Have many of us heard of Leo Strauss and his ideologues whom several of our most highly elected and appointed officials subscribe to his philosophy? I didnt think so. Have many of us heard of the Project for the New American Century think tank which clearly is the root of this current administration?
We are asked to wait for part two of the Senate Intelligence Committees report until after the election? Can we honestly say, we the people of this country , make a truly informed decision on Nov. 2nd on information based on only half of the story?
I would suggest that, for some, more research may be in order.
True Patriots ask questions.

4. My paper is in the heart of conservatism
Guy James lives here and knows just how loaded with Pugs it really is. I sent him a copy. Maybe he will send me back some thoughts.
