An open memo from a concerned voter
To Whom: The “Do-Nothing Congress” (And Other Interested Parties)
From: A “Once Proud Voter”
I am so saddened to see what my country has become: (1) not only in the “Do Nothing Congress,” but in general; (2) the little value placed on life, any kind of life; (3) the media’s LACK OF RESPONSIBILITY to state the facts, not opinion ... unless that’s your job; (4) college-attending youths’ lack of education and knowledge of our past history as it occurred, not what is being rewritten; their morals/values — what I should get/deserve; (6) our instructors/ professors of higher learning whose job is to challenge/get students to think, to help prepare them to be responsible, caring citizens. I realize that I’m characterizing most of our youth, when it reality, it is only the ones to whom the media reaches out. We should be praising and encouraging the good — the future leaders of America, who are going to show us “oldies” all is not lost!
I previously believed that, for the U.S. Congress to function ideally, compromise was the operative word; how wrong I was! Now, we have (or still have) three parties: Republicans, Democrats and the Establishment (comprised of members from both parties), many whose goals are to enrich themselves and stay in Congress until they can no longer function ... then, some become lobbyists!
How Obama and his cronies could have flaunted the law for eight years and corrupted the office of President of the United States is mind-boggling! Judges changing the Constitution to reflect their personal opinions, and the Departments of Justice, FBI and other entities willfully disregarding authority; we haven’t even mentioned Hillary, our beloved Secretary of State, yet! And, so it continues, even to this day. Many of our elected officials are crumbling our government; the average citizen thought we had checks and balances to prevent this kind of hypocrisy from happening. We deserve better than this.
Wake up America! Expect and demand more from your elected representatives. Educate yourself and understand the issues. They were elected to represent you, not their special interests. If they don’t, vote them out. Only then will America be truly great again.
As I sit at my dining room table, filling out another “Don’t Cut my Social Security Benefits” survey, I am truly saddened.
Note: If we really want our kids to be successful, ponder these “pearls of wisdom”.
There are two things we must give our kids — roots and wings.
Treat others as we would like to be treated. (The Golden Rule is still alive and well).
If I can’t be true to myself, then, I can be false to any man. (Paraphrasing Mr. William Shakespeare).
