1. Wanta is responding to mass mailing letters for political candidates as if they're not form letters, and expecting responses. In this case, a form letter from Reagan running for president the first time.
2. From what I can tell from, Wanta is a complete con and fraud, for several apparent reasons: (1) his level of literacy appears to indicate he is a high school dropout. (2) he has no sense of protocol or business acumen, because NO ONE sends the same letter to the following people (it's pointless) ...unless they're nuts, it is redundancy, creates confusion, and wastes everyone's time. It's a game of insiders. NOT outsiders. Wanta is an outsider. Anyone addressing letters like this is NUTS (clearly delusional):
Prime Minister of Japan Yashiro Nakasone
Prime Minister of Vanuatu Walter Lini
Air Vanatu Airlines Gen. Mrg. Thomson Chiu
Ambassador Robet Van Lierop
This is about an alleged attempt by Wanta to pressure a bank to buy an airliner for Vanuatu (whatever that is).

Wanta asks for a job: "Reviewing my professional and responsible endeavors to serve our President, his administration and our country; I respectfully request your joint recommendation today for the Presidential nomination ... My Presidential personnel file as told t me by White House officials is "the thickest", but it illustrates my integrity, qualifications, loyalty to a great President...I also stand tall to accept his challenges and destiny in a timely and efficient manner. ...I sincerely thank each of you for your present and past personal efforts in this White House matter."
Receives a letter back, "We regret that we are unable to offer you a position since it is the policy of this Administration to cut back the Federal bureaucracy and work force. ... We truly appreciate your willingness to serve President Reagan."
Wanta replies w/a letter to President Reagan: "It is most difficult to accept this disheartening letter ... Truthfully, our mutual friends and colleagues and I today do not believe you personally have reviewed my entire White House file ... Either way, I still think you are the greatest..............."
According to U.S. District Court, 9/7/84
Wanta is apparently a food vending machine operator, from a company that went bankrupt.
