An Open Letter to Democrats

This is in response to Michael Moore who wrote an open letter to all Republicans.

There is an old saying: “Three things you should never talk about: Sex, Religion, and Politics.” I would like to announce the demise of true political discourse in this country. It did not go out with a bang or a whimper. It was extinguished by individuals who think they know what is best for you.

To Democrats- liberals in particular:

Bush/Cheney are not in office. They could not have served for third term even if they wanted to do so. So, please do the American public a favor and stop talking about what Bush/Cheney did. They are gone and they are not coming back. This is nothing more than a political smokescreen and enough is enough. Complaining about the war and playing the race card to deflect attention from your real agenda is an old and pathetic manuver.

Next, it’s the economy stupid!!! To paraphrase the “annointed one”, on numerous occasions, “We are in the middle of the worst recession since the Great Depression.” So, a 3.6 trillion dollar budget does not make sense. Where is the money coming from? Government spends what they take in in taxes. So, this budget must have a corresponding tax increase so it is paid for. Otherwise, the government is increasing the national debt. Do not quote talking points and tell me the money will come from reallocating existing funds and taxing the rich. That still wouldn’t be enough money to pay for the budget.

The president said in another interview, I think with CNBC: “We are out of money.” Fine, so please explain to me why the U.S. is going to reform health care? According to the Democrats, it is going to cost 938 billion. If we are out of money, how is this going to be paid for? The president stated today that this must happen to ensure the stability of families. Hmmm. Part of the way Democrats say this is going to be paid for is with a payroll tax, up to 8% of total payroll, on any small business which does not offer health care to its employees. Small businesses will cut jobs to maintain their financial viability. Please explain how this will maintain family stability if they do not have the means to provide for their day-to-day needs because they lost their job.

Finally, can you please display some honest character? The president, members of Congress, and all federal employees are public servants. This means they are supposed to serve the best interests of the entire public.

The president campaigned on how he would change the culture of Washington. He then went on to appoint in his cabinet either long-standing members of Congress or members of the Clinton administration. Where’s the fresh perspective? He said he would reinvent the image of the U.S. abroad. We are still dealing with Iraq and Afghanistan, but the president added Iran and North Korea to the mix. So much for security. He said he would cut taxes for 95% of Americans and they would all receive a “stimulus” check. I still have not gotten mine, but 10,000 dead people have received theirs. Now, the president is proposing taxes on everything from sodas to health care benefits to energy. So, I can’t have a coke, see the doctor, or watch television. That will do wonders for my “stability.”

The members of the president’s cabinet (and those who withdrew their name) have admitted to or may be convicted of the following: 1) failed to file taxes; 2) worked as a lobbyist for the department they were nominated for; 3) accused of taking kickbacks just to name a few. These are the people the president selected to help him run the country. Then there are the ‘czars.’ What???!!! I won’t even go into detail, but the president has chosen people to oversee areas where they do not have any previous experience. This is the utmost in lunacy.

I almost forgot. DO YOUR JOB!!! In more specific terms, this refers to things such as read the bill before you vote on it. (The entire bill not just the highlights as an Obama adviser said on Fox News about the healthcare bill.) Also, if a bill can not withstand rigorous debate; then it should not become law. The country will not implode if you actually take some time to consider the merit of a bill. And last but not least, the character assassinations or political blackmail you have done on Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, or Rush Limbuagh show you to have no firm belief in your own ideas. They need to stop before the public turns on you.

This is not politics; this is plain common sense. Actually, do the research for yourself. The information is out there.
