Dr. Jack Shepard (R-MN) Web Site (www.shepardusgov.com) announces that he will seek the GOP nomination for the 4th Congressional District of Minnesotain the September 12, 2006 Primary Election to run against Rep. Betty Mc Collum and become the first republican US Congressman from the 4th Congressional district in almost 60 years! Dr. Jack Shepard's has been called; "an evangelist in the fight against global terrorism". Dr. Jack Shepard says at this very critical time in our Nations History the next United States Congress urgently needs new Congressmen and Congresswomen with international experience especially whose with a very good first hand understanding of the Arab Countries in the Middle East. Dr. Jack Shepard is on the record as saying that the only possible way to achieve a long lasting peace in the Middle East is necessary to win our war on Terrorism is through dialogue. Dr. Jack Shepard, a self-described "Born-Again Republican" and Veteran American Service Officer. For almost a quarter of a century Dr. Shepard has been based and working out of Rome, Italy as a Mideast Specialist. Dr. Shepard hopes to be returning to his hometown of St. Paul, Minnesota to run for the 4th Congressional District if he gets the support of the White House in his efforts to be the first Republican to win the 4th Congressional District in almost 60 years. Dr. Shepard is just launching into the heart of his campaign; and “God Willing", says Shepard, the heart of his campaign will be the Arab World. Dr. Shepard's campaign support to date has mainly come from the Hmong and Vietnamese communities in St. Paul. They supported him after he promoted policies that would aid the Hmong refugees in the US and help to resettle the Hmong refugees in Thailand and Laos. Dr. Shepard see his election to the US Congress as being urgently needed so he would be in a position to convince other US Congressman who do not really understand the urgency of fulfilling President Bush's vision of the states of Palestine and Israel living side by side in peace as the key to creating a democracy Iraq. Dr. Shepard believes that Americans need to be informed about the Arab World. Dr. Shepard is seeking to strengthen his Arab ties and to promote Arab and Palestinian interests within the Bush Administration. If elected, Dr. Shepard promises to go and do anything that the Bush Administration would ask of him to jump start the presently frozen Middle East Peace process. If elected he promises to relay the true needs of Arabs and Palestinians to the Bush Administration. Dr. Shepard is seeking to hold a forum with top Arab leaders; by giving a voice to the Arab World. He hopes- as an impartial observer- to facilitate a neutral space where these leaders can safely explore what each can and would do to contribute to peace in Iraq and help with finally getting the Israeli’s and Palestinians to the peace table, and do what it takes to have President Bush’s Vision of the two states of Palestine and Israel living side by side in Peace as crowning accomplishment of the Bush Administration. Dr. Shepard is on record as saying, “Until all the voices, values and priorities of all the Arab leaders are heard there will be no chance for resolving the pressing problems in the Mideast. “My goal is to kick start major peace efforts with Arab Governments who deserve to be included in the decision-making. These leaders are close to the ground/people, very frustrated from having to watch things they do not like to see, and such, have many good ideas on how to fix things.” “These are brilliant minds that have been sidelined, he adds. “The world doesn’t understand. Everybody thinks Arabs don’t want peace; they want peace. They are dying for it. They want everybody to roll up their sleeves and get back to work. It is (the despair of) everybody doing nothing that is contributing to all the killing.” Dr. Shepard envisions a kind of expanded quartet (to address the peace process) includes Israel and Arab countries. Dr. Shepard says the forum will give an opportunity to the three major players ( Saudi Arabia, Syria, and Iran) to make a statement that will go right- via mass media- to the American voters, who can then make an informed decision regarding the snarl of questions the Mideast is increasingly raising. Dr. Shepard says Arab (and Muslim) leaders currently do not get that chance. Dr. Shepard also says these are the countries we need the most to hear from, “These are the countries my government wants to have great relationship with but does not have a great relationship with.” For years Dr. Shepard has gone out of his way to visit and meet many high level Government officials from these countries. Aside from facilitating a critical dialogue, Dr. Shepard’s emphasis is largely on economic reform. Dr. Shepard economic objectives for the Mideast include a Common Market- a Middle East Economic Union modelled on the European Economic Union. - Which would establish an economic free trade zone in a borderless Mideast. “Where in 5 years one could drive from Damascus to Jerusalem as easily as we can drive today from Berlin to Paris.” Dr. Shepard says in the past other leaders in the Congress have not been at liberty to promote Palestinian interests in Congress or Arab leader’s voices; until President George W. Bush began to lead his vision of Palestine and Israel living side by side in peace “It was political suicide; now it is official American Government Policies. Dr. Shepard says President Bush should be getting even stronger support for his Middle East peace efforts from congress. If elected to become the first republican Congressman from the 4th congressional District of Minnesota in almost 60 years; Dr. Shepard intends to lead an urgent effort to get a much greater involvement of the next US Congress in supporting President Bush’s Middle East peace plans. If elected Dr. Shepard is going to get out the on the Congressional Floor and say, “If we are ever going to have peace in the Middle East we are know approaching a point of it is now or never, so Let’s do it, and do it NOW” Dr. Shepard believes there is a place for him in Congress, “ Post 9-11”, Americans are seeking officials who know their way around the Middle East who can stress dialogue with the contacts that they have developed in the past years with the high level Government official in the Middle East counties. This is necessary if we are ever going to have peace in the Middle East. This is necessary to get Muslim countries to join us in our stabilization efforts in Iraq so our brave American Soldiers can come home; Mission accomplished.” Dr. Shepard as a “Compassionate Liberal Republican” is committed to equality and justice and says that he wants to get more diversity within the Republican Party. “The Republican party controls the White House, the Senate and the Congress. To be a protestor is a waste of precious time. Dr. Shepard says, “To really make a real difference a person must join the Republican Party and work through the system to get your views heard.” Dr. Shepard become a “Born Again Republican” a former lifelong Democrat he left the Democratic Party after encountering overt racism at the higher levels of the Democratic Party while being a Senior delegate from Democrats Aboard of Italy at the Global Democratic Convention and Regional Caucuses in 2000 held in Paris. To Dr. Shepard’s and all the Black Delegates shock not one Black Delegate was chosen from all the Democrats Aboard delegates from any country in the whole world except America to be a delegate for the Democratic National Convention in 2000 which was held in Los Angeles to nominate the Democratic Candidate for President. Long-time political associate and Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) Country Project Officer Dr. Charles Rutledge says he supports Dr. Shepard wholeheartedly .Dr, Rutledge said; “Dr. Shepard has a fine reputation with most Middle East Ambassadors; high ranking officials at FAO, WFP and all other United Nations Agencies headquartered in Rome, Italy. Most respect and trust him. The only problem Dr. Shepard has encountered is, “People have always listened to Jack because he’s basically always right. The problem is, his ideas are a little too perfect for the world he’s working in. Most important the Republican Party does need people like Jack because he has great ideas and the Republican Party needs the involvement of like minded people like Jack to carry them out.” Dr. Shepard is eagerly hoping to change his present position which he will not go into detail about but he says it’s similar to being a goodwill ambassador for America without a portfolio, to becoming the most junior Congressman from Minnesota but with maybe more Middle East Experience then any other Congressman or Congresswoman now serving in Congress. Dr. Shepard is confident that he understands the frustrations and suffering that goes on worldwide so very unnecessarily that he hopes to stimulate a spiritual awakening by convincing people to once again learn love their neighbors. Dr. Shepard recently said, “I care and work for others, so you think that to call people names, to hate people or to even kill people will help individual causes; these people have forgotten that one day they will be all judged by God.” . Many of you have let hate into our hearts. You use as justification where you were born and in what condition we are forced to live in. This hate has grown in your heart and now makes you think and say and do evil things. I pray for you, that God opens your eyes and opens your ears and you remember that you are create by God and pray that he will makes you well and good. Again. This you can do by treating others are equals, not hating others. You will be judged as you judge; you will be treated as you treat others please never forget this and we will maybe give our children a future better then it look now. Too many of you show your hatred by name calling and hurting or even killing your neighbours; you know I am right. Look at your life, what you do, where you are and where you wish to be. You can only change that and help yourself by having a change of heart by start liking your neighbors, helping each other, begin to work together and live a normal life that GOD finds pleasing. This begins by start to talking to your neighbours with normal language in a way that God would consider pleasing. You must change to be a good person that Loves your neighbour, wishes to help your neighbor, do something’s constructive with your life. Make the world a better place then you found it... May God Bless you with Love, and cleanse you heart of the hate you developed I do not know why; but who ever got you so mad and so unhappy with life you have to forgive them and you will feel better. You still can join others and doing and SAYING things that please God. May God Bless you by opening your eyes and opening your ears so you can hear and do what God finds pleasing. May God Bless America with Peace and Happiness Dr. Jack Shepard

This candidate is a lunatic! And is going in the exact opposite of the tide of the country! I doubt he will even get on the ballot!
