Spit in both of your pompous faces

Dear George:

I am a college student, and I’ve heard many people wonder why my generation seems to lack interest in voting and exercising the rights that so many have died to defend. I think that my generation simply knows that no matter who we vote for in 2004, the President will always carry the elite close to his heart. That’s just the way politics are in the modern world. Disgusted and sickened I hear how much money both candidates are pouring into campaigning. You and Kerry claim to have the best interests of the nation at heart while squandering hundreds of millions on simplistic propaganda. I know that the need for money lead you to utter the infamous words, “Some people call you the elite. I call you my base.” Whenever I consider voting for you, I remember those words falling from your lips.

Just remember Mr. Bush that the elite’s base is built on the broken backs of poor and middle class Americans. They cut jobs and send them overseas to increase their profit without caring what happens to the workers affected. Then again, perhaps I’m being too kind in attributing your affiliations merely as lip service to pull in a few more million. You certainly don’t show care and concern for the average American. Your outrageous spending and wasteful war has ensured my generation will carry the bill for you folly for many years while your base got a tax break. Your economic policy clearly favors corporations while trashing the environment. I’m not even going to mention the contracting favors in Iraq or how your supporting base rarely sends their children to fight and die in your war. Continue to cater and suck up to rich friends Mr. Bush in our nation’s wonderful tradition of political honesty. After all, Kerry’s background and his billionaire wife hardly leave me hoping for relief from that direction. To be honest, I think I’ll vote for Nader just to spit in both of your pompous faces.

Sincerely disillusioned,

Age 19
Dudley, NC
