The Letter

If you haven't yet seen and read it, there is a letter written to Glenn Beck, which letter he read on his TV show earlier this week. It was written by a woman who is a grandmother, just another "lady-next-door" who said a great deal of what I think has to be said. Some excerpts follow:

The fact is I no longer feel any political party or representative in Washington represents my views or works to pursue the issues important to me. There must be someone. Please tell me who you are. Please stand up and tell me that you are there and that you're willing to fight for our Constitution as it was written. Please stand up now.......

Democrat, Republican, independent, libertarian. Understand this. We don't care. Political parties are meaningless to us. Patriotic Americans are willing to do right by us and our Constitution and that is all that matters to us now. We are going to fire all of you who abuse power and seek more. It is not your power. It is ours and we want it back. We entrusted you with it and you abused it. You are dishonorable. You are dishonest. As Americans we are ashamed of you. You have brought shame to us. If you are not representing the wants and needs of your constituency loudly and consistently, in spite of the objections of your party, you will be fired. Did you hear? We no longer care about your political parties. You need to be loyal to us, not to them.

Please, go here, read the whole letter and think seriously about what she is saying. We are seeing our country rapidly changing from what it used to be, what it was created to be, what it should be, into just another centrally run, big-government, socialistic state.
