FITNESS FOR OFFICE

As we read and listen to the news, we are aware of the concerns of our "statesmen" and their sincere concerns regarding the fitness of nominees named by President Bush for judgeships, ambadssadorship etc. I think this is a fine idea and heartily recommend that in the future any candidate for public office or re-election to a public office first undergo FBI investigation, public interrogation regarding their religious faith and how their most personal beliefs will effect their performance in office, all court documents regarding personal matters such as divorce, child custody, adoption etc. should be opened to public review. All performance evaluations, full and complete military records, grades in all levels of schooling, and any and all materials written by the candidates (including personal letters, diaries or journals) should be published in all newspapers in the state in which the candidate resides. After all, we as voters need to be absolutely certain of innermost workings of the minds of candidates before we vote for them.

I think we might see quite a turnover in Congress.

  1. I can NOT disagree more! Adoption records are NOT for anyone's review! And it's NO ONES business about them, except the children involved, when they are older. Simply because the safety of the children is utmost and forefront, as it should be! Their birth certificates, as amended by the adoption is quite good enough. You nor I nor anyone else should be privy to the intimate details of what these children went through and the reason for their adoption availability as long as it went through the proper court actions (which, by the way, can be proven by the "NEW" birth certificate!). Just because you offer your service, talents and skills for the public good, doesn't mean that you give up your constitutional right to certain privacy. A public servant's family home is just that, their home. We have NO right to expect it to be open any more than our own to the public!
    Their work history, education history, and any PUBLIC records are fine and quite enough to be able to assess the quailifications for service.
