    Letter to Congresscritters

    Below is the letter I just sent to my 2 senators and my representative in the House. If you agree with any of it feel free to use all or part as a starting point to write your own reps. I will post responses (if any).
    -
    Senator Scott,
    I sent the following letter to Senator Graham and Representative Mark Sanford. I am very pleased with your representation thus far and just wanted you to know that one of your constituents is trying to help from this end. (This was not in the first two letters)

    I am appalled with the events that led up to giving King Obama everything he wanted and more in this deal, without any cut in spending or change in the implementation of the Unaffordable Care Act.
    Here are some random issues that concern my family, in no particular order;
    1. Those Identified with the Tea Party and Libertarian parties are the only ones that have true conservative values and the support of their oath in the forefront of their policy and decision making. The Republican Party is faltering, and bowing to the liberals at every turn. Our country is on the path to Socialism and dictatorial rule, and there are very few that seem to be opposed to it.
    2. We are borrowing money to give to foreign countries as aid. This is ludicrous. If these countries need money let them borrow it and go into debt. America has become a laughing stock, and our position as a superpower is a figment of the imagination. The things that made our country great have been replaced by laziness and entitlement
    3. Social Security and Medicare are not entitlements to be lumped in with SNAP, welfare, subsidized housing etc. Working Americans have paid into these programs. Welfare is not an entitlement, it is a handout. Why are we being told that Social Security is going broke, but welfare is not? Why are the coffers of Social Security and Medicare being raped to pay for other programs? This is working Americans money and it is being mismanaged in criminal fashion.
    4. Obamacare is, from inception, unconstitutional. This was handed to you on a silver platter by the Supreme Court, and the ball was dropped. Obamacare originated in the Senate. The Supremes said that was unconstitutional unless the personal mandate was considered a tax. Bills to generate tax revenue must come from the House.
    5. The political elite are exempting themselves and their contributors from “the law of the land”, the King is giving a one year waiver for the employer mandate, while allowing an unconstitutional tax to be enforced on us peasants.
    6. Illegal Immigrant is no longer a “politically correct” term. I agree. “Immigrant” gives it a sense of legality, since those that choose to immigrate to America go through a process which requires them to become a part of our country, and insures they will not be a drain on society. Can we instead refer to them as “infiltrators” or “insurgents”? That more closely resembles their attack on our sovereignty., They say that our immigration laws don’t work, yet we have a king that chooses which of them will be enforced. Enforce them before trying to tell us they don’t work.
    7. How is the Main Stream media allowed to continue serving as the propaganda arm for the King? How is the President allowed to berate the news agencies that disagree with his views without being attacked as not supporting his oath of office? How are we allowing questions to go unanswered? Benghazi, Fast and Furious, NSA Spying, IRS targeting that probably effected the 2012 election, the fed losing trillions in the books without knowing where it went, the spiteful attacks on American freedom that occurred following the Sequester and more recently the shutdown (the “make it hurt” campaign), the blatant theft of my Medicare money to pay for Obamacare; these are just a few things that need to be resolved.
    8. How can we allow the King to place Muslim values above the law of the land? Any idiot can figure out that regardless of what he professes, he hates the separation of church and state with regards to Islam. He says that he is not a Muslim, but has never been asked why Barry Soetoro became Barack Hussein Obama. I think that we could just look at Mohamed Ali (Cassius Clay) or Kareem Abdul Jabar (Lou Alcindor) to see the truth.
    9. Last but not least, our Constitution is the law of the land, but is being disregarded by this administration. The 1st Amendment applies to all Americans, not to particular people of the Kings choosing. The 2nd Amendment states unequivocally there shall be no infringement on owning and carrying firearms. There are no facts to support their theory that more guns means more gun violence, you know all this. The 10th Amendment states the rights mentioned in the first eight are the purview of the Federal government. Why are states allowed to have such a wide variety of laws infringing our 2nd Amendment rights? Why is this not unconstitutional? Why do we operate under the premise that our rights are granted by the government, rather than protected by the government?
    Sir, these are foremost among my concerns, but unfortunately just prick the surface of the problems dragging my country into the abyss. I request that you first and foremost respect your oath of office, and place the support and defense of the Constitution above all else. We need to quit trying to find ways to make questionable laws seem Constitutional, then placing the decision in the hands of a partisan Supreme Court. I am not accusing you of failing at this. I am asking that you both support those with the Constitution and the People as their primary concern, and expose those others that place their political career first.
    Respectfully,
    XXXXXXXXXX, (USCG Retired)
    Chief

    Howdy whodat,

    There's a couple of flaws in your post:

    1.) Barry Soetoro did NOT become Barack Hussein Obama. The POTUS born Barack Hussein Obama but his stepfather decided to call him "Barry Soetoro" instead of using his real name. Since Obama was a small child at the time he did NOT have any choice or control in the matter. The other two men listed were adults that choose to change their name.

    2.) By referring to the POTUS as the "King" you come off sounding like a nut.

    That's just a couple but I'm sure I cane find a few others to.

    Paul
    I'm so Liberal that I work at the Bill and Hillary Clinton Regional Airport!

  4. That, Sir, is one of the best summations of the egregious harm being inflicted upon this country that I have ever read. Well done, Sir, well done!

So you are saying he was raised as a Muslim rather than converting...I stand corrected.

    2.) By referring to the POTUS as the "King" you come off sounding like a nut. I calls 'em like I sees 'em. If it walks like a duck...

    Anyway, at least you didn't attack my punctuation and grammar. That would have hurt my feelings.
