  • "Politician who run in front of car (electorate) get tyred."

  • "Politician who run behind car get exhausted."

  • "Politician who stay in middle of road too long get run down and become irreverent."

  • "Healthy politician stay close to car, LISTEN carefully to occupants, and move at similar speed in same general direction."

  • "Thinking and actions of many present-day politician much more crooked and twisted than Formula 1 race track, and can change shape completely in no time."

  •  "Extreme caution required with political leader who first derude self and few close friends with some idea, and then set out to derude WHOLE world with same idea: possibly with help of bomb and bullet."

  • "Good citizen keep sharp eye - like eye of hawk - on politician at all time.

  • "Good citizen refuse to accept hoodwink from politician - no matter how nicely it appear to spin through air. Otherwise, "cute-hure" politician succeed in fooling most people for most of time."

  • "Good citizen realise that almost everything spin-doctor tell you is complete road of borrocks.  Same way with media-typhoon, all "full of wind and piss" like barber's cat who drink too much blood, and with all the rest of the many, many window-dressers as well."

  • "Good citizen who need to change to new politician will avoid jumping from flying-pan into fire."

  • Unless vely careful, good citizen who is forced to fight with dragon run risk of being turned into dragon during fight.  Fighting evil with evil not good.

  • Good citizen realise that corruption, not terrorism, is biggest threat to world peace; and that terrorism usually just the "unwanted child" of corruption.

  • "Good citizen realise that ONLY requirement for adding to world's unhealthy and chaotic ways, and dangers, is that great many over-compliant citizens continue to turn blind eye and do nothing about rampant political, legal, and corporate corruption: which is indulged in by few, but, which give rise to massive social injustice, insecurity, anger, and misery for many."

  • "To put the world in order, we must first put the nation in order;
  •   To put the nation in order, we must put the family in order;
  •   To put the family in order, we must cultivate our personal life;
  •   And to cultivate our personal life, we must first set our hearts right."

   Confucius (551 - 479 B.C.)

Dear Mr President,

The way you and your close colleagues and supporters seem so over keen to launch into an all-out war worries me a lot.

I truly hope the Iraqi problem can (somehow?) be resolved without anybody being killed or seriously injured.

For me, this is particularly true in the case of the very young Iraqi children who (as I see it) are   COMPLETELY  INNOCENT  of all wrong doing.


William Finnerty.

Thank you for emailing Vice President Cheney.  Your ideas and comments are very important to him.

Unfortunately, because of the large volume of email received, the Vice President cannot personally respond to each message. However, the White House staff considers and reports citizen ideas and concerns.

Again, thank you for your email.  Your interest in the work of Vice President Cheney and the administration is appreciated.
