Lt. Colonel Riekse,

Since the Constitution Party national convention is drawing near, I was hoping that I could get a follow-up interview with you. In it, I will ask more in depth questions than I did in the March interview. They would be on how you would handle the presidency, your campaign and why people should vote for you amongst other things.

If you are interested, please reply within 24 hours.

Good luck and thanks for your time, Joe Ford (WNewsReporter on Wikinews)

I started to run for President because I know the Republicans and Democrats would not be having candidates that would solve the problems we have in this country and I know that I could do a lot better with my 32 years of military experience and over 20 years in Education, both in the K-12 public school venue and teaching at the University level. Also I did not care for our party focusing on having a Republican lead our party in 2008; I also think we can do better with my heading the Constitution Party ticket this year then we have in the past; The number of votes we have received in past presidential elections has been pathetic giving our national platform & ideal's. I think I can do a lot better; and in the process, raise the number of votes our candidates receive for national, state and local offices. I feel that with the handle MAD MAX, that will bring notice to not only my running, but the party as well. I have received a lot of very positive feedback from my web site. www.madmaxforpresident.com

                     good questions  & I will continue later.  Max

Riekse

> > growing anti-American feelings? I fully understand and appreciate the feelings that Europeans have for us, especially in regards to our foreign policy. I've been to Europe, including Iceland, the Netherlands, France, Germany, Russia and some five other European countries, both as part of my military service and as a torest. I have found Europeans most friendly and easy to get along with and communicate with. My ansestry is Dutch, German, Danish & English; My English ansestors having come here in 1638; the others in the 1880's. My wife is part Belarusan, Swetish, Norweagean, Polish and Russian. She was born and raised in Moscow, Russia. As president, we will get on very well with all Euopeans, and more especailly Russia. Russia has a huge natural gas & oil deposits and it would do well that we be on good, friendly terms with them. We can be great friends if we try to. All Europeans will be treated with dignaty and respect in my administration.

Would I would do as president is push the oil compines very hard to build two new oil refiners; one on the east coast and one on the west coast in 1-3 years which wll be a great help in keeping the price of gas decel fuel down. Also, I will push hard for reducing the stress on depending on foreign oil be pushing hard for sun, wind and water power, thus greatly reducing the need for foreign oil which will also help keep the price down. I belive that we can get the price of a gal of gas down to $1.00 We also need to cut the federal gas and decil fuel tax by 70%. See my brochure on my web site. We can save a lot of money for building up our roads and bridges by not sending that money to Washingtion.

Within ten days of my being confirmed of being the next president, I will let those planers in the Pentagon know what I expect and to plan for it. Bush will keep the war going until the day he is out of the office. When I take office, I expect to have a plan on my desk to pull out of both Iraq and Aftanistant within 24 hours. They will know what is expected of them the previous november. no plan on my desk within 24 hours, I will start firing a lot of Generals. and I will know what to expect from those plans. I am not only a graduate of the US Army Command & General Staff College, but taught it for nearly six years.

Great Men. We can greatly reduce our dependence on foreign gas and oil by 'burning' clean fuel; and grealty increaing the use of wind, water and sun power. and and President, we will have $1.00 a gallon gas; and the price of decil fuel for American truckers will also come down. and I will stop ALL Mexican truckers from coming into this country and taking Americican jobs.

End the wars; stop a neo-con war with Iraq; Save Social Security; I am on a Constitution Party national committee dealing with Social Security and our committee has a very good plan to not only save Social Security, but keep it well for 100 years; get it out of the hands of Congress which has robbed it for years. and I will also end the taxation of ALL Social Security benfiits for those that are retired; and elimiate the earnings requirment. and I will also end free trade and bring good quality, high paying jobs back top the USA with good health benifits. Only a Constitution Party President such as Mad Max can do that.

I will know late Saturday the 26th if I win the nomination of the Constitution Party; As to wining the general election, I'm very sure that I will do far better then we have done in the previous 20 years as a 'third' party; I'm not only more qualified to be commander in chief then either the Democrate or Republican, but will be far better for the country. In any case, Congress will contiune to be dominate by Republicans and Democrats. I trust the American people.

It will work for me only and no other Constitution Party canidate because only I have many of the quaifications that the American people are looking for. No other canidate that the Constitution Party 'leaders' have in mind are either members of or have great experence in such orgainzations like the VFW; DAV; NRA; military; etc. > > > > Q: Why are you a better candidate than John McCain? He is not fit to be commander in chief; John McCain and Jhon Kerry working togeter on a US Senate Committee turned their backs on some 800 live American POW's who wanted to come home from Laos and Vietnam. As President Mad Max I will bring them all home; and I thing several hundred are still very much alive and want to come home. Read what I have to say about POW's and John McCain on by web ste. He was also one of the Keeting five scandle and cannot be trusted with our tax dollars. He used his fathers influence to get into the War College; and gave very anti-American speaches in Vietham while a POW. He is not good and does not deserve to be President. Pro-life, family values orintated Christians can not and should not trust this man. and he is also very much anti-second amemenment; and will as he said keep us in Iraq for the next 50-100 years; if you are pro-life, you can not be pro-neo con war at the same time. also, the President and those under him have lied about how many have died from the wars in Iraq and Aftansitan. The rule is that if a wounded American gets on a plan on the way out of the country (Iraq or Afganistan) and dies on the plane, in Germany or stateside from his or her wounds, that person is not and has not been counted towards the 'official' war death count. I know that for a fact; I was in Iraq for 12 months working in the main civil-military headquarters; and have talken to many since I was there. the policy has not changed; we are and have been lied to in regards to the number of Americans who have been killed in these neo-con wars and John McCain will contiune the lie's and his contractor friends will make billions off the wars if he is preisident; as will be the case with both Democrates. Want to end this insanity, vote for Mad Max and the Constitution Party for President; for America & the Americna People. > > > > Q: Why are you a better candidate than Hillary Clinton?

Please add somewhere to my interview; This has been on my mind for sometime, but I forgot to include it in my interview. Another way to help bring down gas & decil fuel cost is to put an end to free & unfair trade which has greatly increased the cost of gas & decil fuel for truckers in this country,i.e. as 'third' world demand for oil raises, especially in China, it pushes up the cost of oil for consurmers in this country. Our hugh trade imbalence with Communist China helps fuel the Chinese enconemy thus increasing their 'need' and demand & competation for world wide oil supply. American consummers buying cheap chinese goods are not only helping the Chinese build up their ecnonemy, but also helping to drive up the cost of oil. I will slap a stiff tariff on all Chinese imports; and lead a nationwide boy cote of all Chinese imports to not only drive down the hugh trade defiic with Red China, no real friend of the United States of America, but also to help bring back good paying manufacturing jobs with vested penshions and quaility health benificts to working Americans. and finaly, to pressure the Chinese to free Tibet from harsh deadly and represive Communist rule. Stop Genorcide on the Roof of the World. FREE TIBET. thanks, Mad Max Riekse for President.

Please add somewhere to my interview; This has been on my mind for sometime, but I forgot to include it in my interview. Another way to help bring down gas & decil fuel cost is to put an end to free & unfair trade which has greatly increased the cost of gas & decil fuel for truckers in this country,i.e. as 'third' world demand for oil raises, especially in China, it pushes up the cost of oil for consurmers in this country. Our hugh trade imbalence with Communist China helps fuel the Chinese enconemy thus increasing their 'need' and demand & competation for world wide oil supply. American consummers buying cheap chinese goods are not only helping the Chinese build up their ecnonemy, but also helping to drive up the cost of oil. I will slap a stiff tariff on all Chinese imports; and lead a nationwide boy cote of all Chinese imports to not only drive down the hugh trade defiic with Red China, no real friend of the United States of America, but also to help bring back good paying manufacturing jobs with vested penshions and quaility health benificts to working Americans. and finaly, to pressure the Chinese to free Tibet from harsh deadly and represive Communist rule. Stop Genorcide on the Roof of the World. FREE TIBET. thanks, Mad Max Riekse for President.

Thanks; please add - if you have the time - that I will as President, help drive down the price of food by discouraging the use of Bio-fuel, i.e using corn in place of oil; which was a dumb republican idea to start with. The primary result has been an increase in bread, milk, meat, cheese, and a number of other food items. Corn is food, not a substitute for a poor energy policy. we can do a lot better; As President Mad Max, I will do better; along with making our food supply safer; especially checking all food from Mexico and China. Enough Said. Max Riekse
