LETTER TO THE EDITOR: What wasn’t discussed at Sioux City debate
Question of the Day
Some important topics were omitted from discussion at the most recent Republican presidential debates. Although the Fox News-hosted debate was the best so far, according to many, the following were not mentioned:
Communist China has made a $350 billion profit off the United States during 2011 and we are paying in part for China's largest-ever military buildup; the U.S. stealth drone that went down recently in Iran should have been destroyed or taken back without 20 years of technology falling into enemy hands; China has added a 22 percent sales tax to American cars and other U.S. products sold in their country; OPEC, along with Russia, Iran and Venezuela are sapping our wealth by manipulating our oil prices while President Obama has blocked or delayed use of our vast oil, natural gas and coal resources.
The current administration is deliberately destroying parts of our economy in order to get re-elected - because this is in line with the agenda of radical voters. In a speech the president delivered at Fort Bragg to appease anti-war leftists, he did not acknowledge the victory won in Iraq by 1.5 million Marines, soldiers, sailors and airmen during almost nine years of fighting, with more than 4,400 U.S. troops killed in action and more than 30,000 U.S. troops wounded.
In that speech, Mr. Obama also failed to mention to the troops the large budget cuts that may affect the Pentagon next year under a deficit reduction agreement he made with Congress. Spending reductions are inevitable now that Mr. Obama and former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi have added $4 trillion to the national debt, driving it up to $15.4 trillion.
It appears that the Republicans will not nominate a candidate at the end of the process who is a mystery person with an unknown past, concealed influences and sealed personal records, as was the case with the Democrats in 2008.
