Finally, I wish I lived in the Ohio's 12th US Congressional district so I could vote for Bill Buckel as a US Congressional Representative. He has thoughtful explanations of issues on his website with references to just about everything he asserts as fact. I have not seen a candidate validate their assertions and stance on issues as he has in his campaign site (Write In Bill Buckel For The U.S. House of Representatives). All political representatives and candidates should document their stance with references as he has.

His issues include the below and many more:

He also lists the following "Statements in Preparation":
  • The Government of Israel should pay reparations to Lebanon
  • Iraq---past, present, and future
  • Rethinking the "war on drugs", "War on terrorism", and war on whatever
  • Open government protects our civil rights
  • No more wars without a Congressional declaration of war
  • Reducing the ratio of low-paying jobs
  • Immigration
  • Reasonable pay for congressmen/women
