More questions, no answers about the federal government

April 26, 2014 

* Want to downsize things such as a strong military with well-trained personnel? Remember Pearl Harbor?

* Want only a volunteer military?

* Not want a draft to spread responsibility of defense?

* Want "no-gun zones" on military bases?

* Send money and weapons to nations that are our avowed enemies?

* Need to listen to citizens' conversations, or read e-mails?

* Want to stop drilling for oil and natural gas as well as stop coal mining?

* Want to stop construction of the oil pipe line from Canada?

* Want control of education?

* Give free stuff to non-citizens or illegal aliens?

* Confiscate cattle grazing on the Bureau of Land Management land when cooperation with cattle ranchers might be the thing to do?

Well, I don't have any answers. Maybe someone more knowledgeable than I may be able to provide the answers. I certainly hope so. So many questions go unanswered, so many investigations are not completed, so few reports are submitted, oh, and also some pages are missing.
