Spotlight on "Energy Independence"
This country gives an average of $233 million per day to oil rich countries to provide for our energy needs. When Clint was working with Tom Feeney in 2000, during a discussion of the Middle East, Mr. Feeney made a statement about the usefulness of an invasion in order to secure control of that region's oil. Isn't it odd that the administration chose to liberate a small country that just happened to have the third largest reserves of conventional oil in the world? When so many people in the world continue to live under dictatorial and dangerous regimes, the idea that the only reason was that Saddam was a dangerous dictator isn't very convincing.
Clint proposes an energy policy that gives the power to control our own destiny back to America. It is possible today, with existing technology, to make America 100% energy independent. Even better, America can become 100% energy independent with a constantly renewable energy supply. By switching this country from fossil fuels to bio-diesel this country could fill all its fuel needs - both now and into the future. It would reduce pollutants and deny the Middle Eastern countries any control over us our world politics. We can achieve full energy independence without the need to occupy the Middle East or any other country for economic reasons.
Americans have always equated diesel power with the huge slow work trucks and 18-wheelers. Existing technology can provide a bio-diesel car than gets 40 miles per gallon and yet has sports car speeds of 0-60 in 8.4 seconds. That is faster than a BMW325, a Buick Regal with a 455hp engine, a 1967 Camaro SS350, or a new top of the line Honda.
There is a whole new breed of diesel engines emerging right now. Just look at the results of this year's 24 Hour Le Mans endurance race. Recognized by many as the most gruelling endurance road race on earth. Audi entered the history books this year by winning the race for the first time ever in a diesel engined car. Mass production of bio-diesel has been estimated as low as 27 cents per gallon. By the time the oil companies have transported and dispensed it through the existing fuel network, the cost will probably be a little higher.
Vietnam cost 65,000 deaths and hundreds of thousands of casualties. In just the short time we have been in Iraq we have already suffered over 50,000 casualties and thousands of deaths. What will the cost of a 25 year war, like Vietnam, actually be?
It is in our national security interest to migrate toward energy independence.

Response to "conventional wisdom" that Tricksters use to divert:
Beware of Spinmaster Zones!
Tricksters attack the messenger for sport as a diversion from their own wretched record. The American public will no longer accept such tricks. We plan to always reframe to the issues of honesty and integrity: Take the Test, Tom!
*UPDATE:Clint is scheduling a lie-detector test in the week. Look for announcement at www.clintcurtis.com
These are exciting times! The constituents of District 24 demand that Tom Feeney take a lie-detector test, answering these three questions (based on Clint's testimony on a sworn affidavit, Li nk to Affidavit PDF):
1. Have you ever illegally sold your vote for personal gain?
2. Have you ever assisted a company that has been illegally engaged in espionage against this country?
3. Have you ever attempted to illegally manipulate election results?
These questions are based on incidents that Clint Curtis witnessed first hand when he worked with Feeney in 2000.

Top issue amongst voters? Will our votes count, outside of the Clint Curtis' race without utilizing www.votenow2006.net ? Good question! If you are listening to Washington, you'd think there was no problem at all. For some reason, the Bush Administration thinks it is impossible for them loss either of the Houses in Congress. What is it that makes them so confident? Hmmmm. Could it be Election Fraud?
Let's Examine Integrity! - Feeney as Florida Speaker of the House saw to the redistricting for the 24th Congressional District, so that it would be a solid Republican lock, and then he ran for that district. But is it a lock? Are voters fed up?
Greg in FL -- from Daily Kos
I'm in for $25.00 more. I've been caught rather flat-footed by Clint's campaign. I was astonded by the Zogby poll results. FL-24 is majority Republican (52% I believe,) so Clint needs all Dems plus a high percentage of Indies plus a low turnout of Repubs. So, until the poll came out, I really didn't believe that Clint had a serious chance, despite Feeney's inept campaign. I've got the Curtis yard sign out, I've already contributed before, and been chatting Clint up with the neighbors. I intend to do some visibility before Nov 7. And I live just about a hundred yards from Tom Feeney in Oviedo. Hope, not fear!
Lifelong Republican, retired NYPD Detective Marie Spagnuolo (ret.) now living in Florida watched Curtis' WFTV News 9 3-minute video and came away impressed. "Sounds Like He's Got a Lot on the Ball."
You can have your say as well, by volunteering or donating!

A Note from Clint
I still believe that doing the right thing is more important than making money; that personal sacrifice and fear take second place to the safety and well-being of others; and that love of country is more important than personal considerations. All honest citizens should be concerned about corrupt politicians like Tom Feeney.
Your contribution will help me in our fight to take back America!

When he gets into office, Clint is prepared to take a lie-detector if ever the public demands!
