I have never voted in the past

Dear George:

I want to just tell you that you have my vote over Kerry this election. Its my first time voting ever. I never voted in the past. I am now married and my husband and his family are die hard republican. My husband works for Nabors drilling and works through the Halliburton company. He is worried that if Kerry gets in he most likely will be out of work. Lately I find people on line that want Kerry in office. I argue with that only because I just don't trust him. I also argue that they don't like the wars going on and they say that if you get re-elected that more troops will be drafted. My response to that is the troops that enlisted in the military chose to risk there life to serve our country. But I would rather have them serve our country than have to pay more taxes on welfare due to people losing there jobs because of oil companies going out of business. I also want to know if it is true that this will happen if Kerry gets in.

It is with sadness that I write

Dear George:

I respect the Office of the President of the United States. It is perhaps the most powerful position in the world. It is with sadness that I write to you to tell you that I believe you and your administration have disgraced our country. It seems to me that all of you have placed personal business and money ahead of the good of our country. You have thrown us into a nasty war that was not necessary at the time. You have and continue to misjudge terrorism and the scope of the war you so wrongly got us into. Your brand of street gang-war politics has hurt our nation deeply. Your theme of "if you don't agree with me" then you are unpatriotic is shameful and only serves to divide our country. I believe that our country is in extreme danger of falling further into a place where our rights and freedom will be stripped from us, and Mr. President, I don't think you have a clue as to what is going on. That is terrifying to me.

There is so much more to say. I will end with the fact that I am worried about our country's future under your control.

Yours Truly,

Age 63
