E-mail forward of the year
The following letter read on Glenn Beck's show, is rapidly circulating around the country. Americans everywhere identify with this 53-year-old
woman. She has given us a voice. Once you read this, you will want to forward it to all of your friends...
GLENN BECK: I got a letter from a woman in Arizona . She writes an open letter to our nation's leadership:
"I am a home grown American citizen, 53, registered Democrat all my life. Before the last presidential election I registered as a Republican because
I no longer felt the Democratic Party represents my views or works to pursue issues important to me. Now I no longer feel the Republican Party
represents my views or works to pursue issues important to me. The fact is I no longer feel any political party or representative in Washington
represents my views or works to pursue the issues important to me.
Instead, we are burdened with Congressional Dukes and Duchesses who think they know better than the citizens they are supposed to represent.
There must be someone. Please tell me who you are. Please stand up and tell me that you are there and that you're willing to fight for our
Constitution as it was written. Please stand up now. You might ask yourself what my views and issues are that I would feel so
horribly disenfranchised by both major political parties. What kind ofnut-job am I? Well, these briefly are the views and issues for which I
One, illegal immigration. I want you to stop coddling illegal immigrants and secure our borders. Close the underground tunnels. Stop the violence
and the trafficking in drugs and people. No amnesty, not again. Been there, done that, no resolution. P.S., I'm not a racist. This is not to be
confused with legal immigration.
Two, the STIMULUS bill. I want it repealed and I want no further funding supplied to it. We told you No, but you did it anyway. I want the
remaining unfunded 95% repealed. Freeze, repeal.
Three: Czars. I want the circumvention of our constitutional checks and balances stopped immediately. Fire the czars. No more czars. Government
officials answer to the process, not to the president. Stop trampling on our Constitution, and honor it.
Four, cap and trade. The debate on global warming is not over. There are many conflicting opinions and it is too soon for this radical legislation.
Quit throwing our nation into politically-correct quicksand.
Five, universal healthcare. I will not be rushed into another expensive decision that will burden me, my children, and grandchildren. Don't you
dare try to pass this in the middle of the night without even reading it. Slow down! Fix only what is broken -- we have the best health care system
in the world -- and test any new program in one or two states first.
Six, growing government control. I want states rights and sovereignty fully restored. I want less government in my life, not more. More is not
better! Shrink it down. Mind your own business. You have enough to take care of with your real [Constitutional] obligations. Why don't you start
Seven, ACORN. I do not want ACORN and its affiliates in charge of our 2010 census. I want them investigated. I also do not want mandatory escrow fees
contributed to them every time on every real estate deal that closes -- how did they pull that one off? Stop the funding to ACORN and its
affiliates pending impartial audits and investigations. I do not trust them with taking the census with our taxpayer money. I don't trust them
with any of our taxpayer money. Face up to the allegations against them and get it resolved before taxpayers get any more involved with them. If
it walks like a duck and talks like a duck, hello. Stop protecting your political buddies. You work for us, the people. Investigate.
Eight, redistribution of wealth. No, no, no. I work for my money. It is mine. I have always worked for people with more money than I have because
they gave me jobs -- and that is the only redistribution of wealth that I will support. I never got a job from a poor person! Why do you want me to
hate my employers? And what do you have against shareholders making a profit?
Nine, charitable contributions. Although I never got a job from a poor person, I have helped many in need. Charity belongs in our local
communities, where we know our needs best and can use our local talent and our local resources. Butt out, please. We want to do it ourselves.
Ten, corporate bailouts. Knock it off. Every company must sink or swim like the rest of us. If there are hard times ahead, we'll be better off
just getting into it and letting the strong survive. Quick and painful. (Have you ever ripped off a Band-Aid?) We will pull together. Great things
happen in America under great hardship. Give us the chance to innovate. We cannot disappoint you more than you have disappointed us.
Eleven, transparency and accountability. How about it? No, really, how about it? Let's have it. Let's say we give the buzzwords a rest and have
some straight honest talk. Please stop trying to manipulate and appease me with clever wording. I am not the idiot you obviously take me for. Stop
sneaking around and meeting in back rooms making deals with your friends. It will only be a prelude to your criminal investigation. Stop hiding
things from me.
Twelve, unprecedented quick spending. Stop it now. Take a breath. Listen to the people. Slow down and get some input from
nonpoliticians and experts on the subject. Stop making everything an emergency. Stop speed-reading our bills into law. I am not an activist. I
am not a community organizer. Nor am I a terrorist, a militant or a violent person. I am a parent and a grandparent. I work. I'm busy. I am
busy, and I am tired. I thought we elected competent people to take care of the business of government so that we could work, raise our families,
pay our bills, have a little recreation, complain about taxes, endure our hardships, pursue our personal goals, cut our lawn, wash our cars on the
weekends and be responsible contributing members of society and teach our children to be the same all while living in the home of the free and land
of the brave.
I entrusted you with upholding the Constitution. I believed in the checksand balances to keep from getting far off course. What happened? You are
very far off course. Do you really think I find humor in the hiring of aspeed reader to unintelligently ramble all through a bill that you signed
into law without knowing what it contained? I do not.It is a mockery of the responsibility I have entrusted to you. It is a
slap in the face. I am not laughing at your arrogance. Why is it that Ifeel as if you would not trust me to make a single decision about my own
life and how I would live it but you should expect that I should trust youwith the debt that you have laid on all of us and our children. We did not
want the TARP bill. We said no. We would repeal it if we could. I am surethat we still cannot. There is needless urgency and recklessness in all of
your recent spending of our tax dollars.
From my perspective, it seems that all of you have gone insane. I alsoknow that I am far from alone in these feelings. Do you honestly feel that
your current pursuits have merit to patriotic Americans? We want it tostop. We want to put the brakes on everything that is being rushed by us
and forced upon us. We want our voice back. You have forced us to put ourlives on hold to straighten out the mess that you are making. We will have
to give up our vacations, our time spent with our children, any relaxationtime we may have had and money we cannot afford to spend on bringing our
concerns to Washington . Our president often knows all the right buzzwordslike unsustainable. Well, no kidding. How many tens of thousands of
dollars did the focus group cost to come up with that word? We don't wantyour overpriced words. Stop treating us like we're morons.
We want all of you to stop focusing on your reelection and do the job wewant done, not the job you want done or the job your party wants done. You
work for us and at this rate I guarantee you not for long because we arecoming. We will be heard and we will be represented.. You think we're so
busy with our lives that we will never come for you? We are the formerlysilent majority, all of us who quietly work, pay taxes, obey the law,
vote, save money, keep our noses to the grindstone... and we are nowlooking at you. You have awakened us, the patriotic freedom spirit so strong and so
powerful that it had been sleeping too long. You have pushed us too far.Our numbers are great. They may surprise you. For every one of us who will
be there, there will be hundreds more that could not come. Unlike you, wehave their trust. We will represent them honestly, rest assured. They will
be at the polls on voting day to usher you out of office.We have cancelled vacations. We will use our last few dollars saved. Wewill find the representation
among us and a grassroots campaign willflourish. We didn't ask for this fight. But the gloves are coming off. Wedo not come in violence, but we are angry.
You will represent us or youwill be replaced with someone who will. There are candidates among us whowill rise like a Phoenix from the ashes that you have made of ourconstitution.
Democrat, Republican, independent, libertarian. Understand this. We don'tcare. Political parties are meaningless to us Patriotic Americans are
willing to do right by us and our Constitution, and that is all thatmatters to us now. We are going to fire all of you who abuse power and
seek more. It is not your power. It is ours and we want it back. Weentrusted you with it and you abused it. You are dishonorable. You are
dishonest. As Americans we are ashamed of you. You have brought shame tous. If you are not representing the wants and needs of your constituency
loudly and consistently, in spite of the objections of your party, youwill be fired. Did you hear? We no longer care about your politicalparties. You need to be
loyal to us, not to them.. Because we will get youfired and they will not save you.
If you do or can represent me, my issues, my views, please stand up. Makeyour identity known. You need to make some noise about it. Speak up. I
need to know who you are. If you do not speak up, you will be herded outwith the rest of the sheep and we will replace the whole damn congress if
need be one by one. We are coming. Are we coming for you? Who do yourepresent? What do you represent? Listen. Because we are coming. We the
people are coming."
