  1. I wouldn’t put the Republicans in to too much Hot water for the Current Administartion is using the Programs we have been using From The Republican Platforms and even some from Previous Democratic Platforms too! So the Hoekstra Statemnet is something that is a bonafied Statement, but then again the Bush Administration was allowed to Run some of the Same Programs too without a Hitch! So at that point the Documents search is something to do legally for the Purose of Holding our Governmnet accountable, but not to Compromise National Security either. This is the same purpose for the Hoekstra Statement and Should apply to all Parties and Campaigns too. Government Accountablitiy is very Important but should be [never] made Public unless there is a Crime! Cuba is Prime for the Next Theater of Terror to be on The Radar screen and needs some attention too! Volunteer Intelligence
