Dear Mr. Romney,

I have just finished watching your press conference from Las Vegas, Nevada introducing your plan for job creation here in America and I heard your question:

"Where are the Green Jobs?" You said that we are an energy rich nation. Well sir, your facts are skewed. Natural Gas will run out even with new exploration in less than 150 years. Oil surpluses globally have been estimated to have a life expectancy of 60 years even if we start drilling more domestically.

Your belief that Nuclear Energy can create immediate jobs is just downright delusional. We haven't built a nuclear plant since 1979 and the next one won't be online for another 10 years. 

The only surplus that we do have is Coal and we are shipping it as fast as we can to India and China. Clean Coal? Really? I've never picked up a piece of coal and been able to keep my hands clean. You want to give Congress the right to vote on EPA regulations? This way politicians who are backed by big coal and oil can be held hostage and we can continue to let these industries destroy our Planet!

You further stated that you would place a trade embargo on China! Well sir if you haven't noticed the Chinese are paying our bills!

I have dedicated almost every moment of my life over the last four years to assist green technology companies in becoming successful. I have spent on average 250 days each year traveling to 47 of our great 50 states. I have met with small town mayors, congressional leaders and International leaders promoting green technology.

I have seen technologies here in America that with the right support could literally change the World. Brilliant ideas that if just backed by our Federal government would put millions of Americans back to work.

I have seen a product that could take algae from pond scum and turn it into a brick that can be burned in any coal fire burning facility at the same BTU's as coal. But yet this retired naval engineer hasn't been able to raise enough money to get a manufacturing facility online.

A product that makes an organic fertilizer from worm waste that should be integrated into every landscape design in America that can save millions of tons of harmful emissions from going into the atmosphere but yet this husband and wife team can't find the capitalization they need to manufacture their product.

A company that plants trees that can grow 65 feet in five years, be cut down and a new tree grows on the same stump every four years thereafter that can supply a whole new lumber industry and a feedstock to create Biomass facilities all across the United States while reducing carbon emissions. But yet they are struggling to plant their first forest here in America!

A retired Army Ranger that created a roof application process for commercial roofing that if applied could save up to 40% of the energy usage of that building. A product that if applied to every one of the 80 million commercial, retail and institutional buildings in America can create enough solar reflect ability that we could recapture 60% of the lost polar ice caps that have melted in the last 10 years. It can also put returning war veterans immediately back to work!

You say you want to support big oil and continue to put our soldiers and economy in jeopardy by putting Americans in harms way to defend our insatiable need for that fossil fuel?

Why was America so successful over the last 60 plus years?

Because we built things Mr. Romney. Because America realized that we could manufacture anything! During World War 2 we made a war machine that freed the World from oppression in 44 months. Yet we haven't had a viable energy policy in over 40 years!

Returning American soldiers from World War 2 came home to jobs. Jobs in manufacturing. Jobs in building new homes and businesses. We built an economic superpower by our ability to make things that the World wanted.

As soon as we stopped building. The American economy collapsed. We sent our manufacturing jobs to China and our service based jobs to India. All we were left with was pushing empty paper on Wall St. and we are reaping the economy that we sowed.

Mr. Romney, green technologies like the ones I have described in this letter have the ability of recapturing American manufacturing prowess while restoring our economy at the same time. The old manufacturing industries are gone and they are not coming back. We need a new industry that can help America recapture its prosperity again. There is only one industry on the radar that can save America and the World economies. That industry is Green technology.

President Obama will have the same kind of message on Thursday night. Infrastructure jobs building bridges, tunnels and roads to nowhere. It just won't work. We need to digitize the US Power Grid. We need to treat energy as a National Security issue. We need to build renewable energy projects all across America. We need to make every home, business and building in our Nation as energy efficient and weatherized as possible. That will save Americans and American businesses money every day. We need to take back the subsidies for big oil, nuclear and ethanol and get our troops home and we will save enough money in one year to pay off our debt and then draw a line in the sand with those that control their currency. We need to deal from the high ground not from the bottom of the valley.

We need to get big American companies to pay their fair share. Tell me what's wrong with this statement: FEMA only has $800 million left and has stopped rebuilding efforts from all other disasters since Katrina to funnel whatever it has left to help victims of Hurricane Irene. But yet we gave the banks $300 Billion and the car manufacturers $100 billion and Chrysler said they are not returning $1.6 Billion. Really? FORCE THEM TO GIVE THE US TAXPAYERS THEIR MONEY BACK AND PUT IT IN FEMA!

Mr. Romney, I say this to you and every politician that thinks they have a chance to get elected, if you don't show Americans how you are really going to get them back to work so they can stop losing their homes, put food on the table and gas in the tank, THEN YOU DON'T HAVE A CHANCE OF GETTING ELECTED!

This election will come down to Jobs and Energy...

The plan is simple.....No jobs...No White House... The shoe fits for both sides of the isle and the Tea party.
