STATEMENT OF CHARLES SANDERS
The Bush Administration is perhaps the most unnerving, duplicitous band of pirates to ever occupy the White House. Most likely, it will be decades before the full magnitude of evasiveness and paranoia is known concerning how this Administration initiates policy. The Bush people have punished assistants who have become whistle blowers from its very beginning. It fired the photographer who took the picture featured in my new TV spot because it adequately frames the reality of the Bush occupation of Iraq. The American People deserve a representative who will expose surreptitious conduct by its government, whether done in my district or outside of it. And you can help me do it by submitting my action page to call for our troops to start coming home now.

Many Veterans, including myself, do question this unholy war because of the sheer weight of the lies surrounding why it was initiated in the first place. Our heart and prayers go out to the hundreds of Military personnel who sacrificed all to maintain the United States integrity and mandated resolve to bring some semblance of order in this most unstable part of the world. With such a high price being paid, should we allow over the top politicians a pass on accountability? I should hope not. If each American family must take responsibility for its own, then surely each level of government should also be so regulated. It is a fact that most of our soldiers, Marines, sailors and airman were dispatched with inadequate body armor and shielding to protect military vehicles in the most vulnerable areas.
Military personnel, including our national guard, were sent to Iraq, with no formal training on how to defend against road side bombs and other improvised munitions. Our ad seeks to highlight the failures of the Bush Administration and those who acquiesce with it. Iraq must be allowed to stand up for itself, sooner not later. We simply cannot sit idly by and say "not my problem." The whole fiasco is all of our problems, so therefore, we must END it. Enough chicanery already, let the truth be known and maybe, just maybe, enough political will can emerge to force an end to this senseless war. My career minded baby brother is headed back to the middle East next month, I want what is best for him. I have been out of the military for thirty nine years, but I still actively care about our deployed military forces. Why can't we be honest and face reality that we are going nowhere in Iraq? We now must seek the honorable route out of Iraq before more antagonisms surface against the best that America has to offer.
Your humble representative,
CHARLES W. SANDERS
CANDIDATE FOR UNITED STATES CONGRESS.
