Note: What follows is a letter that I sent to my family, comrades and friends shortly after our historical 2008 Presidential election:
“November 10, 2008
Dear Family, Comrades and Friends:
I would like to once again extend my sincere thanks for being so understanding and extremely patient with me as I struggled to get some factual, fair and balanced answers to my numerous unanswered questions as a means of educating myself prior to casting my ballot during this historical Presidential election.
As always, I freely shared my concerns with all of you as a means of getting your trustworthy and much appreciated fair and balanced feedback with no underlying intention on my part of attempting to sway any of you to agree with me on this or any other issues and/or concerns of mine.
Just as important to me is the fact that we can continue to share our concerns with each other without concerning ourselves about taking each other’s questions and/or issues personal. Therefore, I believe that it turned out to be a very positive and healthy experience for all of us as a family, comrades, friends and, most important, as Americans.
As you already know, a month ago when I began my research and/or investigation process into each candidates background I initially used the Main Stream Media’s (MSM) news coverage to assist me in completing this task in short order, but soon discovered that the information I was getting from them was biased and, therefore, an unreliable resource so I kicked off my own more intense research by using the internet to assist me in accomplishing it.
Although, the process was more time consuming it proved to be an extremely more reliable process, to include the fact that it was more educational because I had more reliable resources available to me, which I could use to confirm the validity of my information on each candidate. (Results of my research are attached.)
I found the MSM’s actions to be most despicable because many Americans either don’t take the time or don’t have the time and/or resources to conduct their own research as a means of educating themselves prior to this and, for that matter, any previous or future elections. And, therefore, are sadly forced to rely solely on the integrity of our MSM to do it for them not knowing that what they get from them may not be factual, along with being unfair and biased.
CASE AND POINT:
Almost every major MSM pollster had egg on its face after the election because most predicted a double-digit win for Senator Obama and only two pollsters were accurate. Critics say that the inflated numbers helped Senator Obama by reducing enthusiasm and support for Senator McCain:
Pollsters Inflated Sen. Obama’s Lead?-Posted on NewsMax.com-On November 5, 2008:
The negative experience that I had with the MSM due to their blatantly biased information caused me to loose all faith and confidence in them as a reliable resource due to their actions, which I found to be deplorable.
Actions that I, as an American Citizen, would expect from a news agency located in a Third World Country where they are owned and governed by their ruling tyrant leaders (dictators) and the people have no freedom of speech rights and are, therefore, forced to blindly accept their government owned biased news coverage as the gospel truth without the opportunity to question the validity of that information.
Lest us, as American Citizens, never forget that we owe our thanks and utmost appreciation to our Lord and our brave and courageous young Americans (men & women) in uniform, who as members of today’s volunteer and elite Armed Forces continue to honorably and selflessly serve their country, like many others before them, and some subsequently end up making the ultimate sacrifice for the sake of upholding our FREEDOMS.
FREEDOMS that we in a “Democratic Society” enjoy the fruits of, but which sadly so many take for granted, to include our elected officials. Our country historically has assisted other countries around the world to adopt a “Democratic Society” (e.g., Iraq, Afghanistan, etc.) at any cost.
These brave and courageous young Americans in uniform have historically been called upon by some of those same elected officials to travel abroad to other countries around the world without enjoying the company of their loved ones that are left behind to fend for themselves for extended periods of time.
The reality today is that, due to our two ongoing volatile wars, growing global tensions and terrorist threats, here at home and abroad, the average turn-around-time for the majority of these young Americans is no less than every 12-18 months (in some instances less), which means that they have been serving 2-4 or more 12-18 month tours in a combat zone since the wars began.
Experience has taught us during the course of the Vietnam War that if this trend continues over an extended period of time it undoubtedly takes a toll on these individual’s mental health and/or capacity to deal with life due to their combat acquired Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) symptoms/condition.
Additionally, for over 50% of them, these ongoing combat experiences eventually result in them tragically loosing loved ones through divorce, due to their erratic behavior, which is normally caused by their deteriorating PTSD symptoms/condition.
I find this is extremely ironic because the majority of them volunteered to join the military, not only to honorably serve their country, which they truly love and would gladly give their lives for, but, more importantly, as a means of supporting those loved ones that many of them ended up loosing in the process of attempting to deal with their PTSD symptoms/condition.
And even more tragic is that many of them (those numbers continue to multiply on a daily basis), end up homeless, due to their ongoing PTSD issues, coupled with the loss of their loved ones, which in many instances includes their perceived lose of faith in their God, family, friends and country.
This again was proven to be a warrior’s most “critical support system” during the course of the Vietnam War.
Although, these poor souls survive their brush with combat many return home and eventually begin self-medicating with alcohol and/or drugs (or both) as a means of dealing with their deteriorating PTSD symptoms/condition, which over time becomes extremely unbearable, especially when forced to endure life without their critical support system and eventually end up committing suicide to put an end to their perceived never ending misery.
During the course of the Vietnam War many young Americans in uniform who fought in that war, along with others such as myself who volunteered to fight for their country at that time, but for what ever reason never set foot in that country, were spat on, called baby killers, and refused service at some public establishments. Additionally, young Americans in uniform at that time literally had their lives threatened by individuals and/or groups, the likes of Bill Ayers and his cronies, who were blaming them for the war and as a result many were ordered by their base commanders to go low profile by not wearing their military uniforms when traveling off base as a means of not attracting attention to themselves. I found this to be extremely deplorable because we were simply serving the Country that we loved and had taken an oath to defend in time of war and none of us had anything to do with the politics of starting and/or continuing the war.
And to add insult to injury, in 2005, when President Elect Obama was an Illinois Senator he had the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) initiate an IG investigation into the possible fraud by Veterans who had been authorized VA Service-Connected Disability Compensation and were receiving 100% Individual Unemployability (IU) benefits due to their severe Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) symptoms/condition.
These Veterans were the most vulnerable due to their severe PTSD symptoms/condition and many had worked arduously for years (e.g., approximately 30 years, etc.) to get the benefits that were eventually authorized and/or approved by the VA. I personally had one of my Vietnam War Veteran comrades and a dear friend who happened to be a Purple Heart recipient and was only one of the many that I had assisted in getting their earned and much deserved 100% Individual Unemployability (IU) benefits due to their severe Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) symptoms/condition, who ended up committing suicide, on or about October of 2005, because he was concerned and/or convinced that his 100% Service Connected VA Disability benefits would be taken away from him and subsequently from his spouse upon his eventual death, as a result of the ongoing VA IG investigation. The sad thing about this issue is that he was only one of many that ended up attempting and/or committing suicide as a result of said investigation.
My approximately sixty-two (62) years of hands on eye-opening and, at times, gut wrenching experiences with both men and women in uniform and Veterans came from: 1) serving my country honorably for twenty (20) years as a Marine Corps Mustang Officer (Enlisted and Commissioned Officer). I served during the entire course of the Vietnam War (1964-1984) and lost many a friend in that war; 2) being raised by a father who suffered from PTSD for approximately forty (40) years as a result of his military service during WWII and who lost his battle with his severe PTSD symptoms/condition at the young age of fifty-nine; and 3) serving a four year tenure as a State Veterans’ Service Officer, which turned out to be one of my most memorable and rewarding jobs in my entire working career because I had the opportunity to help other fellow Veterans, their dependents and/or survivors that were in need. The only bad side of this job was that I ended up loosing many of them as a result of their severe PTSD symptoms/condition.
Finally, after taking the time to conduct my own intense and, at times, arduous research and/or investigation, that included your much appreciated feedback, I continue to have some serious concerns due to my numerous unanswered questions, which I will more than likely continue to have until the day that I am proven to be wrong on each and every one of them, but I assure every member of my family and friends that I will keep the faith, along with an open mind by continuing to hope and pray that my concerns, in time, are proven to be unfounded and without merit.
CASE AND POINT:
What follows are just two of my numerous unanswered questions that I find extremely disturbing, which are the result of my month long intensive research and/or investigation into our now President Elect’s personal and career background that was completed on November 3, 2008 (two days prior to the general election):
I. Is Senator Obama Constitutionally Eligible To Serve As Our President and Commander-In-Chief of Our Armed Forces By Being A “Natural Born Citizen” of the US?

II. What are President Elect Obama’s Ties to Communists and Radical Individuals and/or Groups:

E. President Elect Obama’s Connection to Bill Ayers!-Posted on Hot Air-On October 7, 2008:
Rest assured that regardless of my numerous concerns and/or unanswered questions that resulted from the conduct of my research and/or investigation, they will do little or nothing to keep me from aligning myself behind our newly elected President, as I have in the past, unless my concerns are proven to have merit. All my life I’ve worked tirelessly at being a positive can-do individual who strives to be part of the solution and not part of the problem regardless of the issue(s) at hand, but I also thrive for and demand transparent leaders and factual information that I use to base my analytical decisions on before I get involved with being part of the supposed solution.
As you all know by now and probably much to the dismay of some of you, I have consciously in the past and, if it’s God’s will, plan to continue taking on and at times get addicted in what sometimes turns out to be the arduous and challenging task of bringing to light some issues that I believe to be extremely important not only to me, but to my family, comrades, friends and Country/Republic, especially those issues that the Main Stream Media (MSM) continues to blatantly keep from us as a means of accomplishing their own hidden agenda(s).
I have committed myself to doing this not necessarily for my own good because it’s not about me, but for the sake of my loved ones, especially those that are still too young to comprehend the gravity of today’s issues because they will undoubtedly inherit and be forced to live by and/or pay for the negative consequences that may result from our and our local and national elected official’s actions and/or inactions.
I also hope and pray that these same young members of our family learn from my own experiences and take their God given right to VOTE serious and not cast their ballots blindly by taking the time necessary to educate themselves prior to casting their ballots for the sake of those brave and courageous young Americans that continue to make the ultimate sacrifice for the purpose of upholding and defending this God given right.
The bottom line is that I hope and pray that members of my family, comrades and friends can now better understand and appreciate the reason for me dedicating so much time (24/7) to my research and/or investigation project.
A project that I took very serious and at its conclusion discovered that it was not only healthy for me because it not only kept me from growing cob webs in my brain housing group, which according to today’s gurus is a must for some of us aging buzzards, but it also proved to be an eye-opening and unforgettable educational experience, which I now believe best prepared me for the task at hand-casting my ballot.
I apologize for having you take time out of your busy schedules to endure my extremely long-winded stump speech, but I truly feel much better now that I’ve had the chance to get this issue off my chest, although most of you had to endure the brunt of it. I guess you can say that the time spent conjuring this letter (on and off for almost a week) can be considered as part of my much needed and healthy withdrawal process that resulted from this exhaustingly long, but worthy Presidential election process.
Thanks again for your unconditional love, the same love that I’ve always had for my God, family, comrades, friends and country. And, just as important, thank you for your enduring patience with me.
Have a great day and week as we take the time to celebrate our Marine Corps’ 233rd Birthday (11/10/08) and Veterans’ Day (11/11/08).
May God Bless & Keep You & Your Loved Ones.
With Much Love-Always.
Extensive Research Into Senator Obama’s Background Completed on November 3, 2008:
Bottom Line: I hope and pray that my numerous unanswered questions and concerns are unfounded and proven not to have merit, which tragically the American people will not find out until after our President Elect takes office and governs our country for the next four years, but if most are proven to have merit all I can say this late in the game is: “God Bless Our United (Not Divided) States of America.”
