SOS from Guam!
Is Washington Online?

By Tony Artero, Bureau Chief

    AGANA, Guam -- For the eight years of the Clinton administration the once lovely Island of Guam has endured the systematic destruction of its economic foundation and its people's self-respect. Over this time period Gov. Carl T.C. Gutierrez(D) has been the Clinton Agent directing local administrative affairs on the Island. The result is a calamity of major proportions in this place "Where America's day begins."
   Guam's taxpayers are fed up with Gutierrez' calls for a private sector and government partnerships as the way forward for the people of Guam. While holding out the promise of something better, he only delivers the same old drivel, dependencies and worthless jobs, foodstamps, government housing, and abundance of government handouts.
     The United States Congress hasn't got the gumption to encourage the People of Guam to exercise their basic individual freedom to own and to work their own land.
    So I honestly ask the American people, where is free enterprise, liberty and justice for Guam? We the living have waited for over fifty years since our sacrifices in WWII for the restoration of our personal economic freedom.
    Where is the Bush administration we worked to elect? Surely he has not abandoned Guam to the evils worked on the system by the Clinton hordes. Surely President Bush is not going to ignore the sacrifices of the men and women of Guam on behalf of the American way of life. Or is he?
    Tell him the Chamorro Land Trust Act handouts are here today gone tomorrow, leaving nothing to posterity. Tell him the truth about Guam, that we need government to take its repressive hands off individual economic freedoms.
    Tell him we need to give American citizens the opportunity to earn an honest living to sustainable economic growth and to respect our personal dignity, family values and our search for the American Dream, he sanctity of our personal privacy and the joy of owning our own piece of the rock. In other words, thank you President Bush for making sure that the people of the U.S. on Guam have the same freedom, rights, and privileges accorded these citizens on the mainland.
    Presently, the citizens on Guam are suffering under intolerable conditions. Raw sewage is flowing over Guam's bread basket in Tumon, Ecoli and other fecal coliform bacteria has contaminated drinking water, WWII ordinance and toxic debris is a threat to safety, a comprehensive land use survey of the entire 225 square mile landmasses should be taken care of immediately.
    Immediate action is needed to resovle issues of serious public concern like, no comprehensive aviation nor ground transportation safety plan in place, nor any reliable storm drainage system, nor hearings on GovGuam occupation the land at Tiyan(Naval Air Station), nor hearings on returning the ownership of "Urunao Beach property" to the rightful owners.
