You are the biggest liberal I can remember

Dear George:

I had hoped you would unite our great country. You actually are a uniter, but not as I suspected.

You have certainly united the Democrats. You have done an excellent job of uniting the fundamentalist Muslims against us. You have managed to unite most of the western coalition members of NATO against us. You have been very successful in uniting the World Leaders into believing that we have a “gun slinging cowboy” as a President. It is too bad that all of your successes as a “uniter” are to the detriment of our great country.

I can remember when a Republican was a social moderate and a fiscal conservative. The liberal/conservative name calling and elitist attitudes are not what our country needs.

Remember Harry Truman, a social liberal forging forward with social issues that were the building stones of the middle class. But he was a fiscal conservative requiring that congress give him balanced budgets.

Remember Ronald Reagan, a social conservative with regressive social ideas. But he was a fiscal liberal forcing congress to pass budgets with huge spending deficits.

Remember Bill Clinton, a social liberal with progressive social ideas. But he was a fiscal conservative requiring congress to change there ways and finally pass balanced budgets.

Then there's you, a social ultra-conservative with angry, war like, regressive ideas. But you are the very worst case of a fiscal liberal I have seen in my lifetime.

In fact, Mr. President, you are the biggest liberal I can remember.

I have worked for the Republican Party some years ago when the party was social moderate and fiscally conservative. My older friends are just sick with the direction you took our country.

It's time for us to move our country back to being socially moderate and fiscally conservative once again.

I suppose that means that you will have to go, and take your cabinet with you.

And I suppose that means that I will be voting for Kerry/Edwards in November.

I hope that sometime you can grasp the ideas that made our country great and the meaning of the American dream.

I am a Vietnam Vet and have very strong feelings when it comes to our military. We have fine young men and women on our military services. They are willing to die for us. All they ask in return is that we never put them in harm's way without a very good reason.

You screwed up BIG TIME . . .

I pray that you have the opportunity to move back to Texas next January.

America needs your leadership

Dear George:

As an American, a conservative, and a rational adult, I want to say a few words.

Good job. Those are the words. Under your leadership the nation has recovered from an economic crash to rival the depression, seen the actions of fascist dictators and hateful 'religions' be cut off at the knees. We have had the largest job and manufacturing growth in decades, and there is no end in sight. America today is a better, stronger, safer place then ever before, and this is thanks, in the main, to your leadership.

When people who cannot see this begin to rant and rave, take heart, the vast majority of the nation is behind you, and wants to see another four years of your calm leadership. From the first days in office, in restoring dignity and decorum to the White House, and the office you hold, you have shown the ability to rise above the fray, the petty complaints of those who do not understand the world of today. This is a great strength.

And strength is needed. As we head into the final stretch of the election, more and more attacks on your character and accomplishments will be unleashed. The party preaching inclusion and compassion will seek to exclude those who see reality, and denigrate those who disagree with their credos. The enemy we have fought these past three years will, most likely, redouble their attempts to cause death and destruction on American soil. The valley of the shadow of death is long and deep, but with the Lord’s help, you, and we as your nation, will see the light at the end, and know peace.

So, in closing, stay committed, America needs your leadership, your commitment, and your faith to lead us to the end of the long night. America prays for you, Mr. President, and wishes you all the best.
