Everyone has the right to their opinion

Dear George:

We the people have given you another 4 years to clean up the mess we are in. Some of it your administration created.

Get rid of the 'advisors' that gave you bad information or didn't provide information that you needed to make good decisions. Protect all of our interests not just your business or political 'friends'.

Don't think Republican or Democrat -- think HUMAN BEING -- and don't try to rewrite the Constitution. The Ten Commandments are rules that most of us live by but something needs to guide the non-believers. Everyone has a right to their opinion.

Put yourself in the middle and lower income frame of mind and see what can be done to help us to help ourselves.

Good Luck.

Canada is looking better and better

Dear George:

You are not my president. You have not been my president for the past four years, and you will not be my president for the next four. You and your administration have turned our country into a polarized society of citizens constantly looking over our shoulders, too terrified of "terrorists" to notice that our civil liberties are being stripped away one by one.

You claim that you will work to unite a country that is becoming increasingly divided. Forgive me for being skeptical, but four years ago, one of your campaign slogans touted that you were, "A uniter, not a divider." This, obviously, has proven to be a bald-faced lie, much like your constant assertion that Iraq had something to do with September 11th. You have not done one single thing to ease the tensions of your constituents. Instead, you have pitted the factions of our country against each other, calling those of us who dare to voice dissent "unpatriotic" and turning "liberal" into the newest dirty word.

I wonder what the next four years has to bring. A countrywide rift that will never be mended? National bankruptcy? The senseless deaths of thousands more military personnel and hundreds of thousands more Iraqi civilians? Open drafts? The reversal of Roe v. Wade and countless other attacks on the civil rights of our country's citizens? Another "pre-emptive" war based on lies and misinformation?

I don't know that I'll be sticking around to find out. Canada is looking better and better with each passing day.

"To announce that there should be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American people."

Do not try to keep the minority happy

Dear Mr. President:

We are SO happy that you have been re-elected. Your strength of character and stance for right is something this country should be proud of. We would like to encourage you to not be swayed into governing completely bi-partisan. This is a historic time with a wonderful Republican President and a Republican Congress. We can actually get some things done with Tort reform, which is vital. The people who can't afford health care because Doctors have been forced to raise their prices and even go out of practice because of malpractice suits that are out of control. We can actually enforce better tax laws that will help ALL of America, not just the rich. Please do not try to keep the minority happy by giving in to their misguided and dangerous views.

We love you,

Ron and Pam McCall
