Letter writer John Garon is a typical liberal exploding head. As with most liberals, he is unable to grasp the fact that opposition to the agenda of Barrack Hussein Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid is anything other than rational. Liberals, who demand tolerance, rarely if ever grant it. Garon is such a liberal.
To suggest that opposition is racist enables the left to avoid dealing with the incredible bent toward socialism that the government has taken. GM and Chrysler are now Government Motors – the United Auto Workers were spared, and granted large ownership in these, but legitimate investors were branded as obstructionist by Obama.
The government now controls one-sixth of the economy, by its takeover of medical care. The government has taken over student loan programs. The president and his sock puppets vilify business, large and small, then complain that business isn’t doing enough. According to the White House, the federal budget deficit, for FY 2009, 2010 and 2011 will total over $3.2 trillion, more than four times the total budget deficit accrued during eight years of George W. Bush.
On top of this, Obama has alienated our allies and sucked up to our enemies. He has done nothing to secure our borders, even though parts of Arizona are under control of Mexican drug cartels. Americans are being killed, regularly, along the border. President Bush did no better, but when the government sues a state to avoid enforcing immigration laws, while our people are dying and our country is being occupied by foreign invaders, the time is way past to do something about it.
We oppose Obama because he is a lousy president, taking our country down a rathole of debt, taking over the economy and destroying it, failing to protect our own people and borders, offending our allies and exposing us to greater terrorist threats by trying to make nice with terrorist supporting countries and groups.
So, c’mon exploding liberal heads, if you’re going to oppose our opposition to the president, get beyond the silly, false charge of racism. Clearly, on Nov. 2, the country spoke, loudly, about how we feel, collectively, about this country’s “leadership” over the last 22 months.
