Lynne Herring: To the American people
October 2, 2008
To the editor:
This letter is to the American people. I know, no one in this country is sitting in front of his or her TV watching the destruction of this country and blaming this on the government. It is not the government’s fault all this is going wrong. It is our fault! We have elected these people. Every election, we listen to both sides, and we believe they are telling us the truth. We do no homework as to what they are saying. We pay no attention to their voting records or who they hang around with and whom they take advice from. We do not remember our history; we have not read or remembered the Declaration of Independence or the U.S. Constitution. We have no clue what socialism or Communism are.
I say all this because this financial crash has been going on for a very long time. We as voters seem to be sound asleep. We vote Democratic because we have always voted Democratic, or we vote Republican for the same reason. And then we sit back and take for granted that those we elect will do their job. And when they don’t, we wait for the next election, and again vote and vote and vote without changing anything. And to make matters worse, we believe everything we see on TV and read in papers and magazines.
When are we going to wake up and recognize the system is broken and this country we love is being destroyed because of politics, because of Republicans and Democrats? We also need to wake up to the fact that big media (TV and print) already have picked the next president of the United States, and they are going to do everything they can to pull the wool over our eyes. I believe they are as dishonest as the day is long. I believe politicians will do or say anything to get elected, and the one thing they will not do is tell us the truth.
Our economy is broken, our ability to take care of our own energy is non-existent, and we have left the back door to our country wide open for every terrorist, drug gang and convict from other countries to come through. And while we sit back and watch the partisan bickering and finger pointing, on all sides, the vultures (Iran, Russia, China) are flying overhead, ready to pick our bones.
So, for those who believe in God, I am asking you to pray for this country. Pray for those leaders who are true and honest, that they will have the strength to do what is right and voices (loud voices) to reach the people of America. Pray that we as a people will be able to recognize socialism and communism for the truly evil that they are and that we as a people will realize that government cannot nor should it solve all our problems. Government housing is socialism. At no time has socialism ever worked without bringing its people to bondage, financial and physical. Please pray for us all.
