My name is William Robert “Bob” Lang, Jr., and I live in Natchitoches, LA.  With much thought and prayer, I have decided to seek the United States Senate seat now occupied by Senator Vitter.

 I'm a combat veteran of the United States Navy.  Being a veteran makes me vitally interested in seeing that veterans and active-duty military have the best of everything!  I was also a volunteer fire chief/assistant chief for 20 years.  I give you my word that I will not embarrass you with immoral behavior while serving as your United States Senator.  I graduated from LSU in Baton Rouge with a degree in Industrial Management and a minor in Math along with an Associate Degree in Fire Science from LSU in Eunice. 

This country, in my opinion, is on the verge of a financial calamity and changing from a constitutional republic to a socialist/communist form of government.  If the United States Congress and President Obama continue to spend in such an insane manner, borrowing at least half of everything we spend, it is a guaranteed recipe for national suicide and national failure.  

"if government was not enslaved, the people soon would be"...

The people must return our government to the original intent of the U. S. Constitution, a small and very limited Federal government.  Jefferson said, “In questions of power, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down by chains of the constitution”.  Jefferson knew and believed that, if government was not enslaved, the people soon would be.  The founding fathers believed that each branch of government would be jealous of its powers and never surrender them to centralized control.  Judging by current events, they might turn out to be wrong.  In order to have a dictatorship, you must have a single branch of government holding most of the reins of power.  Once you have this, a dictatorship is inevitable.

    Do we have almost all of the power vested in the Executive Branch of our government today?  I would say, “yes”…in Obama and his czars.  Our founding fathers representing the citizens of the colonies revolted against the near total government of the British monarchy.  They formed a Constitutional Republic with very limited powers vested in the Federal government.  They knew that men prosper most in freedom. 

We need a government that is slightly to the left of anarchy, with just enough limited power to keep law and order and a functioning government and allow maximum freedom to the individual citizen.  The Federal government was ceded very limited powers by the states, primarily to provide for national defense and establish a Federal court system.  It was intended to give Americans a chance to succeed or fail without being invaded by some foreign power. 

In my direct line of ancestors, there are two proven Revolutionary War soldiers (and I am currently verifying two more) who, along with tens of thousands of others, sacrificed everything to gain our independence from England.  Citizens who believe in a small and sovereign Federal government, a strong sovereign state government and all of the power in the hands of the people have to come forward NOW to stop this out-of-control socialist train flying down the tracks at warp speed. 

I consider myself to be one of those citizens.  The idea that socialism is a share-the-wealth program is strictly a confidence game to get the people to surrender their freedom to an all-powerful central government.  President Obama tells us we are building a paradise on earth, but we are actually constructing a jail for ourselves.  Socialism is total government control over YOU.  All controls are people controls.  Eventually, they will destroy your right to private property, eliminate the family unit and wipe out religion.

It is not ironic that those pushing hardest for socialism and control over you; i.e., Rockefeller, Kerry, Kennedy, etc., have their wealth protected in tax-free trusts and tax-free foundations.  They are for every socialist program that comes along increasing taxes on the middle class but not on themselves.

Socialism is a tool of the elite to gain control of wealth and eventually establish a one-world government run by the elite.  President Obama says that we need a civilian national security force at least as strong and well funded as the U. S. Military. Who is this well-funded security force planning to fight?  I believe that he is preparing to fight conservative U. S. citizens who believe in the U. S. Constitution and who will lay down their lives, if necessary, to preserve freedom and liberty. 

We must return immediately to the original intent of the Constitution so brilliantly and skillfully created by our founding fathers.  The private Federal Reserve Bank is unconstitutional and represents the most important item in the 10-part Communist Manifesto.  Item 5 is the crown jewel of the Communist manifesto stating: “Centralization of credit in the hands of the state by means of a National bank with state capital and exclusive monopoly”.  Lenin said, “Just give me control of a country’s National bank and I am 90% there in establishing Communism.”  Nothing is more dangerous to the elite than the public understanding the private control of the fiat money supply by the Federal Reserve Bank.

        The Fed has printed so much money that our dollar is becoming almost worthless.  Is financial bankruptcy their plan for taking us over without ever firing a shot?  Only silver and gold are mentioned as legal tender in the Constitution.  Our present fiat (monopoly) money is unconstitutional, and every nation over the past 4000 years that used it collapsed financially. Also, keep in mind that  our 16th amendment is Item 2 of of the communist manifesto; a graduated income tax.  This is not new.   The Pharaohs and their elite advisors believed that the entrepreneur, the businessman and the workers who produced the wealth were NOT competent enough to manage the wealth.         

        I believe in the Christian religion.  I believe that the United State Constitution and the Bill of Rights are superbly crafted documents.  President Obama believes that they are flawed.  I believe that the most expensive things in the world are freedom and liberty and that 100% of the power in this country belongs in the hands of the most intelligent in our country…the individual citizen.  I do NOT believe in:  Abortion, cap and trade, euthanasia of the elderly, illegal immigration, cutting missile defense and nuclear weapons, mandatory counseling on end of life choices and anything else that is liberal.  Small business is the backbone of the United States economy, and President Obama has done nothing to help them create jobs. 

      

Military Service

        Served two combat cruises aboard aircraft carrier USS Oriskany during the Vietnam war. During the first cruise, on October 26, 1966, we had a tragic magnesium flare locker fire that killed 44.  Magnesium burns at approximately 4500 degrees and is almost impossible to extinguish. Among the deceased were 24 combat experienced Naval aviators, 2 out of our 4 doctors, a Catholic priest, and our CIC commander, Commander Juntilla. Commander Juntilla's wife requested that he be buried at sea. We all gathered on the fight deck and had his funeral (really it was also a memorial service for the other 43 whose bodies had been sent home). Commander Juntilla's body was committed to the deep off Guam in the deepest part of the Marianas' trench in early November of 1966.

 
        We came out of dry dock in May of 1967 at Hunter's Point Naval shipyard and went back to the Gulf of Tonkin off the coast of North Vietnam after extensive repairs. On July 29th, 1967, we were operating with the USS Forestal when a Zuni rocket accidently lauched off an F-4 and hit Senator McCain's A-4 belly tank. The massive fire and explosions killed 134 and wounded countless more. I was working on the flight deck as one of three air transfer petty officers and had the job of getting all the numerous wounded to sick bay off the fight deck as they were transported from the Forrestal to the Oriskany by numerous helicopters.

        During this cruise from June, 1967 to January 1968, our Carrier Air Wing 16 suffered the highest loss rates of any unit in naval aviation during the Vietnam conflict. We had 122 days of combat flying during this cruise and lost one-half  the  planes and one-third the pilots assigned to the Oriskany. All total, 20 aviators were killed or missing in action, 7 were taken prisoner of war, and 38 aircraft were lost. Also, many of my sailor buddies were killed working on the flight deck from various accidents.
 
    I went to air traffic control school in Glynco, Ga. in the spring of 1968 and was assigned to Naval Air Station Memphis as an air traffic controller. During this time, every Friday three T-38's would land and refuel and return Monday and refuel. The pilots were Armstrong, Aldrin, and Cernan going back and forth between Houston and Wright Patterson AFB training for their flight to the moon.  I was dicharged from the service in March, 1970 and returned to LSU to complete college.
