Sen. Maria Cantwell faces 28 primary challengers, including Republican Susan Hutchison

Cantwell/Hutchison – Which one will work to shut down undeclared/unwon wars that never end?

Whatever happened to the formal congressional declaration of war?

This would be the time to hear from elected leaders and top generals on all the issues that have doomed the Department of Defense track record for winning wars since DOD was established in 1949.

Cantwell/Hutchison – Which one will work to end federal marijuana prohibition?

It took a constitutional amendment to prohibit the sale of a glass of wine- why no constitutional amendment to authorize a federal prohibition of marijuana?

The struggle:

Candidates do not represent the views of voters.

The voter is not part of the majority that controls politics.

Politics is controlled by majority rule. The majority of people who vote will align with one of two major parties. These parties agree in some key areas.

Question for the left and the right:

Any talk of shutting down undeclared/unwon wars that never end?


What stays the same no matter what political party or personality is in power?

Failed Wars that Never End.

The Heroin Racket.

A secretive, wasteful, and ineffective US Dept. of Homeland Security.

The ongoing glorification of military service.

Federal prohibition of hemp and marijuana.

Newspeople who do not ask questions.

Guantanamo prison.

“…they swear an oath to support and defend the Constitution.”

Are there more?
