From the September 2006 Idaho Observer:
9/11 Truth and Election 2006
The "five-years-after" mid-term election is weeks away. A few mavericks are running for office on 9/11 truth platforms. But for most political office hopefuls, incumbents and challengers alike, the fact that half of America does not trust the findings of the 9/11 Commission is not a campaign issue.
That point alone causes us to question the quality of our representation in the legislatures of this land. For 9/11 truth-seekers, 9/11 (not abortion, Social Security or Medicare) should be THE 2006 campaign issue because it was THE event that triggered the current phase of our nationís (and the worldís) fiscal and political woes.
Though mainstream polls show that half of us want to reopen the 9/11 investigation, politicians will continue to confine their campaign rhetoric to idiotic side issues for as long as we allow them to do so. If 9/11 truth fails to become THE campaign issue this fall, the onus will be on us.
At right is a slightly edited version of the questionnaire sent by the North Idaho chapter of the 9/11 Visibility Project to candidates running for office in the five northern counties of Idaho. This questionnaire was adapted from the model letter posted at www.911truth.org. and sent to the candidates via U.S. mail.
The national 9/11 Visibility project is encouraging people to go to the site, click on the "Polling for Power" button and do the following:
1. Download and print the questionnaire.
2. Personally hand it to candidates for public office.
3. Retrieve the data and enter it into the candidate data entry form at www.911truth.org.
4. Send copies of the completed questionnaire to 911 Truth, PO Box 5407, Woodridge, IL 60517.
For those who do not have computers but still want to participate in the public awareness campaign to make 9/11 truth THE political campaign issue come November, then consider these tactics:
1. Duplicate the questionnaire at right.
2. Either a) Mail copies of it to everyone running for office in your area; b) Take copies to the campaign offices of the candidate and personally hand them copies of the questionnaire or; c) make a public announcement about 9/11 truth at candidatesís forums and then publicly hand each candidate a copy of the questionnaire.
3. Forward copies of returned questionnaires to: a) Local newspapers; b) 911 Truth at PO Box 5407, Woodridge, IL 60517.
4. Compile the data (and non-responses, if any) and; a) write letters to local newspaper editors; b) publicly announce the results of questionnaire responses at social and political gatherings or call-in talk radio programs.
Ladies and gentlemen of the unorganized independent thinkers party: Never in our dissident lifetimes have we had half of our countrymen in agreement on such an important issue. 9/11 truth will likely prove to be our last and only chance to avert the disaster looming for America and the world. 9/11 Truth and Election 2006
Dear Candidate __________
In recognition of the fifth anniversary of the September 11 tragedies and the imminent 2006 mid-term elections, we approach you on behalf of all those harmed by 9/11ís attacks and aftermath, and the 70 million voting age Americans now calling for a new investigation. We would appreciate a few minutes of your time to consider the following three propositions and answer several important questions.
1) The September 11 attacks changed Americaís governance, course and balance of power more than any event since Pearl Harbor or the Kennedy assassination.
Five years later, the official 9/11 story still remains the administrationís primary source of political power over the nationís foreign policy, military missions, intelligence agenda, budget priorities, and even judicial environment. To this day, the 9/11 attacks and consequent "War on Terror" are repeatedly invoked to rationalize problematic situations and justify unprecedented new practices and policies.
2) Most Americans distrust the official 9/11 story and nearly half want a new criminal investigation.
Zogby Internationalís May 2006 9/11 poll revealed that less than 50% of the American public trust the integrity or conclusions of the 9/11 Commission, and 45% desire a new and truly independent investigation that would also examine evidence for government foreknowledge, facilitation and/or complicity. (A separate 2004 Zogby poll found that two out of three New Yorkers also support such an inquiry.)
3) Hundreds of prominent figures from all parties, faiths and ethnic backgrounds have publicly called for a new and truly independent 9/11 investigation.
Those demanding a new criminal inquiry now comprise many eminent Americans including signatories to the 9/11 Truth Statement such as the 2004 presidential candidates for the Reform, Green and Libertarian parties; theologians, rabbis and imams; scientists, scholars, pilots, and first responders; corporate executives, military officers and high government officials from both Republican and Democratic administrations.
If you are successful in the November 2006 mid-term election, you could personally play a critical historic role in disclosing the full truth and implications of this world-altering tragedy.
Knowing that most candidates are extremely concerned with the current wars, Constitutional challenges and extraordinary fiscal threats the country now faces, and assuming that most would agree that 9/11 played a critical role in their evolution, we would respectfully like to request your answers to the following questions as a reference for voters in the upcoming polls.
First of all, would you be willing to answer a few questions about 9/11 related phenomena, including recent polls showing increasing public demand for a reinvestigation?
Yes - I understand the significance of these issues and will respond to the questions.
No - I do not wish to share my views on the events of September 11 or public calls for a new inquiry with my constituents at this time
If "Yes": please proceed to Question 1.
If "No": would you care to briefly explain your reasons below?
1. Are you aware of the so-called 9/11 truth movement among victim family members, researchers and ordinary citizens or any of the evidence suggesting U.S. government involvement in the attacks that they would like investigated? Yes / No
2. If "Yes":
a. Are you also currently aware that many prominent Americans and 45% of the public say they would like to see a new and truly independent 9/11 inquiry, specifically one that also examines the case for government foreknowledge and complicity? Yes / No
b. Do you believe that government truth issuesóranging from 9/11, anthrax and the Patriot Act to the Iraq war, surveillance encroachments, legislative deceptions, and other administration initiativesómay all be significantly related? Yes / No / Uncertain
c. If you are successful in November, would you support a truly independent, victim family-supervised and subpoena-empowered reinvestigation of all 9/11 evidence and events? Yes / No
d. Given the evidence for and the significance of potential government involvement, are you willing to make the demand for a new 9/11 inquiry an important issue in your campaign?
Yes / No
e. Would you accept campaign volunteers largely motivated by our Republicís tactical and strategic need for 9/11 truth? Yes / No
f. Would you be willing to accept and endorse the distribution of well-documented 9/11 truth materials in your electoral district? Yes / No
3. If "No":
a. Would you be willing to review the enclosed Report of the Citizens Commission on 9/11 summarizing these facts and then respond to this questionnaire within two weeks? Yes /No
b. If "No": Thank you very much for your time.
c. If "Yes": Thank you. Please review the enclosed Report and we will re-submit questions "a" to "f" above to your office in two weeks time.
Please sign this survey on the line below and return your completed survey in the self-addressed stamped envelope provided OR fax this survey to (your contact phone number).

All responses will be published in the 2006 Candidates Poll Forum at 911truth.org and shared with interested print and broadcast media as well as the online community for political action and follow-up.
