In my opinion, our national government is too busy wasting our time and resources. Recent examples of neglect to our national security and economy follow.
Foreign jurisdiction: Recently a bipartisan Congress voted to override a presidential veto of the 9/11 jurisdiction over Saudi Arabia. It now exposes our soldiers fighting in foreign countries to potential foreign judicial liability for following orders in the war against terrorism. Congressional insiders secured future jobs for government lawyers defending foreign lawsuits.
Cathy McMorris Rodgers didn’t think it out and voted for the veto override. Something like Joe Pakootas’s fresh vision is needed in our do-nothing, gridlocked Congress.
Foreign Economics: Recently our Trans Pacific Partnership, designed to put us and our allies in parity with foreign competition along the Pacific Rim with China, Russia and India, was shelved. People like Hillary Clinton supported the trade pact, then flip-flopped, effectively laying it to waste.
Donald Trump’s direct business prowess with a more precise executive economic effort may prevent similar waste of time, money and effort in the future. Independently vote for the outsiders, Joe and Donald.
