 DEAR REPUBLICANS AND PROGRESSIVE EVANGELICALS:  A NOTE ON A WAY OUT OF THE MALAISE  Dear Iowa Republicans, 

Allow me to introduce myself!  I am Kevin Anthony Stoda.  I am a Midwesterner with roots in Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, and Kansas.  I am also candidating on-line and without a budget for the Presidency of the United States.  I announced my candidacy a week ago.

I am running on-line and in your upcoming Presidential Caucus in order to bring a more balanced Evangelical and real American Justice Perspective to the Republican Party and its campaigns in 2008.  I want to pressure the party into accepting and representing the vast number of conservative Americans who see the compact between people and our Federal State to include the need to apply the rule of law at the highest levels. 

 

This means REPUBLICANS NEED TO WALK OVER TO THE WHITE HOUSE AND TELL GEORGE W. BUSH and DICK CHENEY TO RESIGN OR BE IMPEACHED.

If Midwestern Republicans don’t get our party leadership to walk over to the White House and set up these resignations—and force the appointment of good and fair Republican Leadership immediately, the Republican Party will continued to be tainted by Bush and Co. throughout the next decade.

If Republicans beat the Democrats to the door on impeachment—a step required in the scenario we now face by our own founding fathers who set up the ground rules for ousting leadership decades ago--, we will get whipped all over the place in the coming decades as American voters move back to the center and left in terms of HEALTH CARE REFORM and commitment to the poorest.

 

I am an evangelical Christian who believes that sacrificing real Christian historical commitments to justice and empowerment (of the lowest members in our society and world) to misguided plans of creating a Puritan state in the U.S.A. is a NON-STARTER.

Christians need to see themselves as passing through this planet.  This passing through is not a free pass.  It comes with commitments.

 

In the book of Genesis, we are charged as humans to take care of the planet and earth

 

This means:

 

-Stop wasting resources on things that go boom and supporting the watering down of the constitution (including habeas corpus) and rights of those among us!

-Set a good example by leading the fight against man-made related global warming!  (Even if part of global warming is a natural occurrence, Americans-- as users of the greatest amount of  natural resources and as the wealthiest country on the planet--need to set an example by using alternative sources of energy produced by wind and sun. Midwesterners have an abundance of this.  We also have the ability not only to grow corn but the ability to grow rapeseed and other crops, like sugar beats, which could reduce America’s over-demand of global resources.)

 

-Stop being dependent on totalitarians to maintain U.S. security and fuel supplies.

  SHORT HISTORY OF OUR CAMPAIGN  

A few month’s ago, I wrote an article which outlines my dismay at the far right and misguided evangelical support of a shift in America from core human, social, and labor values that had made America the light of the world at mid-20th Century.
