Citizens For A Better America a national, grassroots, non-connected, independent political committee
established on October 15, 1992 whose focus is to elect morality and values based candidates from party
committees to the presidency all over America.
"We recognize that in this day of a massive sell out of our Nation’s sovereignty and the interests of the
American people by so many, it is a rare privilege to be able to endorse the above candidate(s) for public
office and to proudly put them on Citizens For A Better America’s , "Good Guys List"™, said Robert
Colaco, national chairman of Citizens For A Better America .
"Why have these individual(s) been qualified to appear on your "Good Guys List"™?", asked one radio
show host of Robert Colaco. "We ask very hard hitting written questions that test not only a candidate’s
political positions but also their knowledge of the political process. Our goal is to discover their core
beliefs, and we feel our questions do that. If they pass the questionnaire they are then personally
interviewed by me. I verify they really did mean it when they checked off their positions on our
questionnaire. Our members and the general public want to know that," said Colaco. "Let me give you an
example - Just recently a candidate said to me. I was just answering all the questions and checking off the
questions, then I got to question #18 and I really had to think. I had to go back and review each of my
answers, this questionnaire really gets to the heart of things, of what was I willing to compromise on."
Question 18 -
"You may be required to make political appointments, you may endorse other candidates. Candidates
accept endorsements and endorse others to further their political goals. If someone answered or had
positions differently than you did, which of the above questions in this questionnaire if any, would you be
willing to "agree to disagree" with them on so that you could appoint them or endorse them? Please list
the number(s) of the question(s).
[ ] The number(s) of the question(s) I could "agree to disagree" on
[ ] Except for Question #01, I could not "agree to disagree" with anyone regarding any of the answers to
the above questions for the purpose of endorsing them or appointing them."
"In addition we ask the candidates to sign, ‘Under penalties of perjury’" said Colaco. Regarding the
penalty of perjury line Congressman Dannemeyer said, "You sure haven’t left them any wiggle room have
you Robert?". "I said that was my goal Bill and he said you have accomplished it," said Colaco.
"It is a rare and special candidate(s) that qualify for our endorsements. So, we proudly put our seal of
approval on the candidates on our "Good Guys List"™ and we wholeheartedly encourage the Citizens
that can vote for them to do so with great enthusiasm and to do all they can to get these men and women
elected to the offices they are running for," said Robert Colaco, National Chairman.
*Sen. Mountjoy was endorsed on 02/14/1997, Question 18 and the perjury line were added to the
Candidate Questionnaire on 04/03/1998.
