Since Congress and President Bush is on vacation, the Valley will not follow their example. Business, politics and policy does not stop for the summer sun. Read below:
What must the 2008 Presidential candidates say or support to get the Valley's endorsement? Here follows a few issues, take notes Senators, Mayors and Governors.
A) Sarbannes-Oxley [SOX]: Most American IPO's and foreign companies are choosing the London Stock Exchange over NYSE due to over regulation by SOX. Free up American business' so they can bring in investment and help the American Exchanges.
B) Wilsonian Idealism or Nixonian Realism? If a candidate answers this question, they will have my attention. Should Democracy spread or should we deal with dictators? What are the pre-requisites for dealing with America, either financially or diplomatically? I'd love to hear the answer.
C) If a Democrat, clean out your anti-semites; If a Republican, help re-build California. I'm a partisan Republican, what did you expect?
D) Taxes: For or against?
Tax Cuts: For or against?
E) How do you propose to fight the War on Terror? What tools, what battlefields? Ad hominims and ad hoc ideas will not do -- specific means to specific goals. I'll listen.
F) Do you work across the aisle? Give an example. Will you police your own party?
G) Do you belive in HUMINT or ELINT in fighting the War in Terror?
H) How is your support of Israel in the next attack? What will you do?
The Valley will endorse one Republican and one Democrat before New Hampshire. Candidates, I await your answers.
