Lujan's silence sparks voter remorse

-A A +A

As an independent conservative, I voted for Ben Ray Lujan because I thought he represented the greatest chance that something would actually be done in Washington. It is hard for me to admit it, but I was wrong.
If we as a species ever hope to  become civilized, we must learn to solve all of our problems without the use of force. For every problem we face, from the smallest family to the largest government, we must learn to talk openly about the problem with those with whom we disagree, find a reasonable solution where all win, make an agreement, and then keep our word.  I would suggest that when we won’t even talk to each other, there is no further chance to become civilized.
Several months ago, when the Fredericksons had an open house to show off their solar system, I met Mr. Lujan and handed him a paper written by Harry Braun, who is now running for president as a Democrat. This paper, available at braun2012.us, clearly describes a plan to move to a renewable-produced hydrogen society in eight years. Over the last 30 years, Mr. Braun has clearly thought out the problems that face humanity and found solutions.  
Even though I handed this paper directly to my congressman and he promised to stay in touch, he now refuses to answer my letters concerning moving to a renewable hydrogen society and he won’t even tell me if he is for or against this process.
I feel I sacrificed much of my spirit energy in Viet Nam, as I believed in this country and what it stood for. But now, I find I am a citizen without representation. If my congressman won’t even discuss the issues of our day with me, am I still an American citizen?
What recourse do I have to change my government for the better?  And does Mr. Lujan really care for the people, or is he bought and paid for by the oil companies, like everyone else in politics?
If Mr. Lujan represents you, please call him and ask his position on moving to a clean hydrogen economy, where we breath pure air instead of the by products of burning hydrocarbons.
