How would your constituents be better served if they elected you rather than your opponent:
They will be served being an out spoken person, not being intimidated by special interest groups. Like my opponent like particularly to give by interest group like APAC, Israelis Public committee the most powerful the lobby in the United States
And is basically funded unconditional support to Israel which in itself is a drain of our resources and creates more hatred towards the United States.
The second issue is to work towards the amendment to the constitution so the foreign commerce is delegated to the states and if this is carried out our state is tremendous opportunities for trade and we have the agricultural and economic.
I will be in open communication to the Arab and the Muslim world a tremendous market for us and our products, and those fifty five counties representing 1.5 billion Muslims are being heavily courted by the Europeans and the Chinese.
If elected what will be your top three priorities for your term in office?
#1 Introduce through the congress a 1 state resolution in Palestine including Israel were the Muslims, Jews and the Christians can live in a secular United County like ours and in itself it will reflect positively on all our the whole country and we will not be sending billions of dollars we will not be sending billions of dollars to fight terrorism or for home security or others.
#2 I will be working on basic health which means universal basic health which means everybody is covered for the basic. Basic is simply like a rational health care.
#3 The third will be a war power act to amend the constitution article 1 section 8 paragraph 11, the war power act will be delegated to the state legislator rather than congress. We should never have gone to war with Iraq, they have never been a threat to our national security. It is true that they would have been a potential threat to Israel but not to us. Iraq has no weapons of mass destruction and were ready to give the US a guarantee that no violence or terrorists would come from Iraq no or in the future. Saddam Hussein was going to call for new elections and a new constitution where he would not be a candidate. The US moved too quickly to see the results of these guarantees. I was the one who carried all these proposals and they were both approved by Iraq’s two Vice Presidents. This is all factual happenings that I witnessed and participated in. We went to Iraq for various reasons but the strongest was to protect our ally, Israel. I have evidence on my website to prove these findings.
1) Make Social Security private and a source of investment by the worker, which would allow the worker to invest it, create added revenue and plan future growth.
2) Delay retirement to 70 years of age considering that in our day and age people are living longer and the quality of life has improved. We should make this delayment of retirement an option rather than an obligation.
3) Increase contributions of employers to social security from 50-100% to 100-150%.
Cut defense spending which requires us to resolve the foreign policy disaster of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. The US gives Israel, directly and indirectly, every year an estimated $50 billion. We should call for a one state solution and unite the two peoples so that they are forced to work together to build a strong country for all rather than warring about land and each other. We must keep in consideration that the Jews comprise only 72% of Israel’s population and the current birth rate of Palestinians will create a demographic shift in the years to come; meaning Israel will never be a purely Jewish state and as time goes on the majority of their population will be Palestinian. It is best to come up with a solution that includes everyone now rather than waiting.
The military is very large and too big. The US military is the most powerful in the world and no one can rival our forces an our technology. I am in favor of a draft so that the military reflects our country’s diversity and people. Currently our military is comprised of children 18-25 year olds who were in search of benefits that our military promised. During war situations they can act irrationally and unprofessionally that does not fit our military’s standards. Our soldiers need to be trained more professionally and need to be educated on the cultural differences in the countries they travel to. These men and women represent the US and it is befitting to teach them how to represent us. Our soldiers’ disgusting actions in Iraq were an example of this lack of education and sensitivity.
Homeland security is unnecessary and is creating paranoia. It is only used for political purposes. It creates fear and uses unnecessary funding which results in no extra safety for the people. Homeland security protects no one, creates fear, uses unnecessary funding and should be eliminated. Instead we should concentrate on the agencies that the federal government already has and try to improve on them and the communication between all agencies, the government and the public. Homeland security, along with the Patriot Act, are beginning to walk a fine line and infringe on civil rights. We cannot allow our country to protect people by abusing precious civil rights. Our foreign policy is what puts our people in danger. If we stop supporting Israel and its terrible policies than the countries that have targeted us will stop. We know this because every country that has threatened us, not to mention the rest of the world, has stated this loud and clear. We must show the rest of the world that we support ZERO terrorism regardless of whether the country happens to be our ally or not.
Nuclear power is the future of this country. Our country is a technological power and if we diverted money from spending on Homeland security and Defense than we can find ways to improve the technology and find clean, environmentally friendly ways of disposing of nuclear waste. There are numerous alternatives to oil energy and many are in use today. Our country must be willing to tap into those alternative sources and make them affordable and available for all.
Universal Basic Health insurance should be available for all. Deductibles should be applied according to a patient’s income on a sliding scale from $100 to $1000. Welfare should apply a small co-payment and this would help cut down on welfare abuse and contribute to the welfare budget. Free prescription drugs should be available for the disabled and the elderly. A deductible should also be applied to this such as on the sliding scale mentioned above according to a patient’s income. The government should be involved with generic drugs. 85%-90% of all drugs prescribed are generic and this market should be utilized by the government. Not only will this generate revenue for the government but costs can also be controlled. The government should become involved in there development and/or shareholders in major generic drug companies.
As a Muslim, morally, I do not support gay marriage, but we live in a secular nation which separates church from state. If this is indeed true then it is not our decision to define the participants of marriage. This should be a religious decision.
