Actions speak louder than words

Dear George:

Actions speak louder than words. Which is why I don’t understand how anyone but selfish, rich white people can say they support you. After all, they are the only ones who benefit from this administration.

You consistently ignore the needy--including the elderly and the children. You threaten and intimidate those who dare question your statements and ideas, rather than encouraging an honest debate of the issues (although that’s understandable--sad and pathetic, but understandable--considering how awful you are at extemporaneous speaking).

You lied to the world and to the citizens of this country in order to get us into war for a selfish reason, which even your own father knew better than to do. You ignored the environment, health care, and education by saying one thing and doing another, knowing all the while that so many Americans will believe what they hear rather than think for themselves. Yet you and your cronies (several of which are under indictment for various crimes) are perfectly willing to try to impeach Clinton for lying about an affair. To put it into perspective--which one’s lie resulted in the deaths of thousands of Americans for several years with no end in sight?

Pat Buchanan has even said that this administration is dirtier than Nixon’s--after all, Nixon’s dirty politics didn’t endanger anyone’s life the way the Valerie Plame leak did.

I also don’t know how you can call yourself a Christian, since I’m sure Jesus Himself would be ashamed at what you’ve said and done in His name. True Christianity says “judge not, lest ye be judged”, yet you send people to their death with a smile on your face and a joke on your lips--both as governor of Texas and president of the United States. You show no tolerance for the poor, or even the middle class, let alone for anyone who doesn’t share your ultra-conservative views.

Like I said, actions speak louder than words. And history, thankfully, will remember you for your actions, not your words. The truth is always revealed, in the end.

Liberals will not listen

Dear President Bush,

I am proud to call you my President. I support your choice to send troops to Iraq and to areas where freedom is scarce or non existent. My heart breaks for the troops we have lost to this war, but I believe we are doing the right thing because there are terrorists out there that hate us because they don’t like the way we live or the freedoms that we enjoy. How do you fight that logic? How do you reason with people like that? The frightening thought is that it is probably only a matter of time before we have another 9/11 episode. We have to protect our boarders and our airports, and still people are complaining about being detained and searched. Some are even taking the matter to court because we are violating their civil liberties. I suppose they would rather be blown to high heaven than to submit to a search that would ultimately keep them safe.

I am sick of hearing our own congressmen, senators, legislators, in addition to our so-called Hollywood “authorities,” speak so hatefully about you, my President. Their voices quiver with hatred. Never before, have I ever felt our own freedom jeopardized by our own outspoken critics. Yes, I believe in freedom of speech. Yes, I believe that we all have the right to form our own opinions. However, I hear lies being repeated. Day after day on the radio and in newspapers. It’s almost like a form of mass hysteria: “President Bush LIED about weapons of mass destruction. He LIED about why we invaded Iraq. He LIED about this ... he LIED about that.” LIBERALS WILL NOT ‘LISTEN’ to the facts. They invent their own version and after a while, it becomes their truth.

WE MUST REMEMBER, THAT WITH FREEDOM COMES RESPONSIBILITY. We are becoming our own worst enemies because we are giving the enemies ammunition to destroy our credibility amongst our allies and to feed their hatred for us. I believe we can keep our freedom and still voice our concerns about government policies. We are, after all, Americans. Let us not forget to act like Americans!
