This is how Bush plans to keep up the Army. Is this how we 'honor' our armed forces:

Soldiers from a Fort Carson combat unit say they have been issued an ultimatum - re-enlist for three more years or be transferred to other units expected to deploy to Iraq.

Hundreds of soldiers from the 3rd Brigade Combat Team were presented with that message and a re-enlistment form in a series of assemblies last Thursday, said two soldiers who spoke on condition of anonymity.


This is another example of how our government thinks that regular people like you and me are merely to be used for their ends, not individuals with hopes, dreams and maybe even some rights.

It is reflected across the board from military policy, tax policy, healthcare - name it, and if you scratch the surface you will see that the policy is merely subterfuge for another way to use regular people for their means.

That is why we need to elect one of us to the congress.



Some thoughts on campaign financing

Here is a link to Rep. Petri's money sources:


In-State vs. Out-of-State:

In-State $38,050 (28.9%)
Out-of-State $93,384 (71.1%)

Top Metro Areas:

DALLAS $25,500

Is he our representative or Texas/DC's?

If you look more on the site, you will see that I show $0 in contributions. That is because I did not cross $5,000 in contributions until Aug 31. You do not have to report until after you hit that threshold. My reporting will be in in October - the next deadline.

As of today, I have raised about $8,000. Petri has about $1,000,000 in the bank.

Why? He has saved his money from year to year when no one ran against him. I believe this is wrong. At the end of any election cycle, your account should be at $0. If someone contributes to my campaign, they are because they think that this year, I am the best choice. I should not be allowed to carry that over into the next election cycle. I might no longer be that persons choice.

Allowing the carry-over of dollars to following election cycles is an incumbancy protection program that is bad for democracy.

I will, as you congress member introduce legislation abolishing this.
