Awesome Letter That A Dying Military Veteran Sent To His Representatives In Congress

Writing A Letter - Photo by Petar MiloševićYou will be amazed by the things that a dying military veteran wrote in a letter to the two U.S. Senators that are representing his state.  Like so many other Americans, this elderly vet is absolutely disgusted by the corruption and the incompetence that he sees coming out of Washington.  In the past, I have also written about how $1.4 billion is spent on the Obamas each year and about how Congress is living the high life at our expense, but in this letter this dying military veteran puts things much more eloquently than I did.  The name of the vet that wrote this letter is Bill Schoonover, and it was written on April 3rd, 2013.  Even though his representatives in Congress will probably never take the time to read this letter, I think that you will agree that the emotions that Mr. Schoonover has expressed in this letter are shared by millions upon millions of other Americans all across the country…


Dear Senator:

I have tried to live by the rules my entire life. My father was a Command Sergeant Major, U.S. Army, who died of combat related stresses shortly after his retirement. It was he who instilled in me those virtues he felt important – honesty, duty, patriotism and obeying the laws of God and of our various governments. I have served my country, paid my taxes, worked hard, volunteered and donated my fair share of money, time and artifacts.

Today, as I approach my 79th birthday, I am heart-broken when I look at my country and my government. I shall only point out a very few things abysmally wrong which you can multiply by a thousand fold. I have calculated that all the money I have paid in income taxes my entire life cannot even keep the Senate barbershop open for one year! Only Heaven and a few tight-lipped actuarial types know what the Senate dining room costs the taxpayers. So please, enjoy your haircuts and meals on us.

Last year, the president spent an estimated 1.4 $billion on himself and his family. The vice president spends $millions on hotels. They have had 8 vacations so far this year! And our House of Representatives and Senate have become America ‘s answer to the Saudi royal family. You have become the “perfumed princes and princesses” of our country.

In the middle of the night, you voted in the Affordable Health Care Act, a.k.a. “Obama Care,” a bill which no more than a handful of senators or representatives read more than several paragraphs, crammed it down our throats, and then promptly exempted yourselves from it substituting your own taxpayer-subsidized golden health care insurance.

You live exceedingly well, eat and drink as well as the “one percenters,” consistently vote yourselves perks and pay raises while making 3.5 times the average U.S. individual income, and give up nothing while you (as well as the president and veep) ask us to sacrifice due to sequestration (for which, of course, you plan to blame the Republicans, anyway).

You understand very well the only two rules you need to know – (1) How to get elected, and (2) How to get re-elected. And you do this with the aid of an eagerly willing and partisan press, speeches permeated with a certain economy of truth, and by buying the votes of the greedy, the ill-informed and under-educated citizens (and non-citizens, too, many of whom do vote ) who are looking for a handout rather than a job. Your so-called “safety net” has become a hammock for the lazy. And, what is it now, about 49 or 50 million on food stamps – pretty much all Democrat voters – and the program is absolutely rife with fraud with absolutely no congressional oversight?

I would offer that you are not entirely to blame. What changed you is the seductive environment of power in which you have immersed yourselves. It is the nature of both houses of Congress which requires you to subordinate your virtue in order to get anything done until you have achieved a leadership role. To paraphrase President Reagan, it appears that the second oldest profession (politics), bears a remarkably strong resemblance to the oldest.

As the hirsute first Baron John Emerich Edward Dalberg Acton (1834 – 1902), English historian and moralist, so aptly and accurately stated, “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men.” I’m only guessing that this applies to the female sex as well. Tell me, is there a more corrupt entity in this country than Congress?

While we middle class people continue to struggle, our government becomes less and less transparent, more and more bureaucratic, and ever so much more dictatorial, using Czars and Secretaries to tell us (just to mention a very few) what kind of light bulbs we must purchase, how much soda or hamburgers we can eat, what cars we can drive, gasoline to use, and what health care we must buy. Countless thousands of pages of regulations strangle our businesses costing the consumer more and more every day.

As I face my final year, or so, with cancer, my president and my government tell me “You’ll just have to take a pill,” while you, Senator, your colleagues, the president, and other exulted government officials and their families will get the best possible health care on our tax dollars until you are called home by your Creator while also enjoying a retirement beyond my wildest dreams, which of course, you voted for yourselves and we pay for.

The chances of you reading this letter are practically zero as your staff will not pass it on, but with a little luck, a form letter response might be generated by them with an auto signature applied, hoping we will believe that you, our senator or representative, has heard us and actually cares. This letter will, however, go on line where many others will have the chance to read one person’s opinion, rightly or wrongly, about this government, its administration and its senators and representatives.

I only hope that occasionally you might quietly thank the taxpayer for all the generous entitlements which you have voted yourselves, for which, by law, we must pay, unless, of course, it just goes on the $17 trillion national debt for which your children and ours, and your grandchildren and ours, ad infinitum, must eventually try to pick up the tab.

My final thoughts are that it must take a person who has either lost his or her soul, or conscience, or both, to seek re-election and continue to destroy this country I deeply love and put it so far in debt that we will never pay it off while your lot improves by the minute, because of your power. For you, Senator, will never stand up to the rascals in your House who constantly deceive the American people. And that, my dear Senator, is how power has corrupted you and the entire Congress. The only answer to clean up this cesspool is term limits. This, of course, will kill the goose that lays your golden eggs. And woe be to him (or her) who would dare to bring it up.


Bill Schoonover

Pretty incredible, eh?

Mr. Schoonover may not get to live through the horror that the full implementation of Obamacare will bring, but most of the rest of us will get to experience it.

As recently noted, the federal regulations governing Obamacare are already more than 8 times longer than the entire Gutenberg Bible.  We are heading toward an unprecedented bureaucratic nightmare…

Since March 2010, when President Barack Obama signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) and its companion Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act (HCERA), the administration has published in the Federal Register 109 final regulations governing how Obamacare will be implemented.

These regulations add up to 10,516 pages in the Federal Register—or more than eight times as many pages as there are in the Gutenberg Bible, which has 642 two-sided leaves or 1,286 pages.

And health insurance premiums are already starting to go through the roof at the same time that many Americans are having their hours cut back at work as a result of Obamacare.

We are seeing a fundamental transformation of the workforce, and it is all thanks to Obama.  Billionaire Mort Zuckerman made the following statement on the McLaughlin Group this past weekend…

“Part-time employment is going to grow from 25 percent of the workforce to close to 50 percent of the workforce in part because of the problems of healthcare obligations.”

Can you survive on a part-time income?

In the years ahead you might have to.

And of course the Republicans are doing nothing to stop the implementation of Obamacare even though they have had opportunity after opportunity

“When the Democrats passed Obamacare, every single Republican in the House and the Senate voted against it. Every single Republican in the House and Senate vowed to do something about it,” said L. Brent Bozell III, the chairman of He noted that Republicans took control of the House in 2010 by campaigning against Obamacare.

“Sean, the problem is, they have done nothing about it,” Bozell told Sean Hannity Monday night. And while Republican lawmakers talk about all the things they have done to defund and repeal Obamacare, “they have done nothing of substance,” Bozell said.

Our politicians don’t want any part of Obamacare themselves, but they are more than happy to force it on the rest of us.

The video posted below is less than 2 minutes long, but I think that it is one of the best videos about Obamacare that I have seen.  I think that you will agree that it is extremely funny…

So what do you think about all of this?

    That Muslim commie in the White house came with an agenda to destroy the U. S. and he succeeded brilliantly.

    • Magneto2012

      I hear every republic-tard use ignorant words like that. Muslims do NOT claim him as one nor does he. It takes more than a foreign sounding name- so grow up. I have no problem of your dislike for him, but please, learn to read. That goes for all on this board too! I can stereo-type too, say every Jim bob or Chris Stewart is KKK. The man is nothing more than a well paid screen reader. His loyalty is to the bankers. You know, those men who the media pretends don’t matter.

      • seth datta

        I’m no muslim-lover, but i’d characterise the people in power in the uk as hardcore Satanists.

      • Paul

        The White House staff is full of Muslim Brotherhood people. Check out Hilary Clinton’s chief adviser Huma Aberdin Weiner whose mother is leader of Muslim sisterhood. Check who is advising the President. It is not by accident all of the middle east leaders are being replaced by brotherhood leaders. Get on the net for yourself and check this out. Follow the money to the source, the Saudi’s and George Soros the Nazi collaborator. Obama was born of a Muslim father in Kenya and Raised by a Muslim step father in Indonesia. He was registered as a Muslim in school there and studied Koran and Sharia. His mother and educators in the states were virulent anti- American communists. Please get on the net and check these facts for yourself. You are right that he is a puppet for the NEW WORLD ORDER. That is why the U.S. is looking more and more like “HUNGER GAMES”.

      • Michael Sievers

        That is why he wears a ring that says “There is no god but Allah”. Yep, not a Muslim.

          Good one!!

      • Nikita63

        What a shame that YOU cannot be objective enough to see after five years, the damage he and the Banking cartels have done to this country and act as an apologetist for it or at least one who certainly sounds the part! I see you disdain ALL on the board which is typical of you short sighted libtard loony tunes. We will all suffer the same fate so while you are accepting of it, many of us are not. Though the election will be fixed as they all are, If most Americans will simply vote out of office ALL politicians regardless of party affiliation in the upcoming mid terms Mr. Obama is trying so hard to keep the electorate’s mind off of collectively, we can rid ourselves of 1/3rd the core of effete elitist corruption and send the message that once this group is gone, we will go on a vendetta for the next 2 elections until we succeed in removing you ALL! Then, we can begin to restore sanity to our constitutional republic by restoring it to what it once was with equitable law enforcement, fiscal responsibility, the deportation of parasitical illegals whose first act on our soil is to violate our law and throw the UN out of here so we can exercise development of our energy resources, create jobs, reduce energy costs increase quality of life for AMERICAN CITIZENS AND SECURE OUR BORDERS SO WHAT HAS HAPPENED OVER THE LAST 35 YEARS OR SO CAN NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN; AND NEITHER CAN THE ELECTION OF A FRAUD LIKE THE ONE PRESENTLY IN OUR WHITE HOUSE!

        • chuckfreyer

          Oh Nikita babe, did ya hear me babe? I sing it to ya: Now let’s look at facts such as the Def. Depart. website:
          1. 15 million muslims here today that are American as you

          2. Your leader , voted in twice is the son of a muslim and commands the entire forces of the U.S.A

          3. The whole decade (technically 8 years) ruled by a muslim!

          4. For the rest of your life, before and now and into the future, you pay every time you earn, spend or buy (electricity, you use ; gas, food, anything, everything) because taxes calculated into the item as well as inflation within the price, goes towards liberating muslims and the trillion dollar debt that has gone to liberate us/them muslims. We have lost more people than NAM to do this !!!!!

          Everyone you know, your kids, forever, will be paying for muslims.

          Did you know that? Its time to dance babe!

        • Gay Veteran

          can you read? he said “…His [Obama’s] loyalty is to the bankers….”

        • adplatt126

          1) I think Magneto was just pointing out that Obama is not all to blame. The civilizational and systemic rot began long before Obama and will continue long after he’s gone. He’s just a puppet. In that sense Magneto’s right.
          2) There’s no taking the country back. It must be dissolved. The criminal empire in Washington must disappear forever.
          3) Secure our borders? Our children are all dating outsiders. We’re one fifth Mexican! Our civilization is lost. The only reasonable course is outright secession and dissolution of the government and the rebuilding of the nation and the rebirth of its historic values in isolated segments of the country.

      • Shamus

        I must have Obama confused with another president that took his presidential oath with his hand on a copy of the KORAN. Not convinced? Let me share the Dictionary definition of “Koran”

        Koran (kɔːˈrɑːn)

        — n

        Also: Qur’an the sacred book of Islam, believed by Muslims to be the infallible word of God dictated to Mohammed through the medium of the angel Gabriel

      • guest

        President Obama’s allegiance to the Muslim Brotherhood – and to the cause of Islamization as a whole – is very obvious; it is also disturbing that a United States President clearly places such loyalty ahead of the interests of the nation. It becomes less of a mystery, however, when one realizes that the President has direct family ties to the Muslim Brotherhood: His half-brother, Malik Obama, is – at least indirectly – a member of the organization.

        The Muslim Brotherhood is a terrorist organization. This is not a matter of speculation or opinion; it is a solid fact. The Brotherhood gave birth to a number of terrorist groups – the al Qaeda network among them, as well as Hamas, which was founded as the Palestinian branch of the Brotherhood.

        Even during the current crisis in Egypt, Muslim Brotherhood supporters are carrying out genocidal attacks on that country’s Coptic Christian community, as well as kidnapping and executing members of the Egyptian security forces.

        The Brotherhood has openly expressed support for the al Qaeda-affiliated opposition in Syria and the Brotherhood’s former Egyptian dictator, Mohamed Morsi, has been personally connected to terrorist attacks, including the Hamas-led assault on the Egyptian prison in which he was formerly incarcerated and the armed attack on the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

        Many have suggested that the US President is, himself, Muslim. This is not so ridiculous, when one considers that he was raised – for at least part of his early life – as such, and educated in a madrassa, an Islamic school. Statements by the President himself lend further credence to this speculation: During an address to the United Nations General Assembly in September, 2012, he said “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.” In 2009, whilst speaking in Ankara, Turkey, the President also said of the US that “We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation,” despite the fact that the country was, clearly, founded upon Judeo-Christian principles and the vast majority of Americans do, indeed, consider America a Christian nation. Lastly, there is the well-documented fact that the President’s family in Kenya is a Muslim family, with several family members being extensively linked to fundraising for organizations that promote Islamization.

        For balance, it should be pointed out that speculation about the President’s personal religious convictions is just that – speculation. He has often spoken out on the subject of religious tolerance – even though, as President, he has repeatedly failed to condemn the growing trend of demonizing and marginalizing Christians and the Christian faith in America.

        Another little-known fact about Obama’s life and family history has become starkly relevant, given the current developments in North Africa: Covered in the Egyptian and Saudi press, as well as CNN’s Arab-language division, but ignored by the mainstream media in the US, are the activities of the President’s half-brother. Malik Obama is the executive secretary of the Islamic Da’wa Organization (IDO). This entity was founded by Hassan al-Turabi, longtime leader of the Sudanese political party, the National Islamic Front – itself an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood. For many years, al-Turabi was seen as the power behind the Sudanese government and permitted safe harbor for Osama Bin Laden, during the latter’s years in Sudan. In this capacity, it is claimed, Malik overseas the Muslim Brotherhood’s international investments. This claim has been made by Tahani Al-Jebali, former Chancellor of the Constitutional Court of Egypt. Al-Jebali proposes that the Obama administration has been overtly sympathetic to the Muslim Brotherhood precisely because of these family ties.

        Another – and perhaps even more disturbing – association is that of Malik Obama and Omar al-Bashir, Sudan’s former President, who is wanted by the International Criminal Court on charges of genocide and other crimes against humanity. Although Malik Obama and al-Bashir seem to have been careful not to be photographed together, they were both speakers at a 2010 IDO conference in Khartoum. Also in attendance at this conference was Hassan al-Turabi and Suar Al Dahab, Malik’s boss at the IDO. Al Dahab, for his part, is a known associate of Ismail Haniyeh, the Hamas Prime Minister, and Sheikh Yusuf Al-Qaradawi, the Muslim Brotherhood’s spiritual leader.

        I have two friends that were Muslim and now are Christian. They have both said they believe Barrack’s mouth may say he is Christian, but his heart is Muslim.

        Listen to his voice each time he repeats, “The Holy Qu’ran says”… friends told me, he pronounces the word “Holy Qu’ran the correct way and with reverence.

        Michael Sievers and Paul are correct, you Magneto need to do some further research on our current President.

        There are two types of people, honest and dishonest.

        Obama’s background is still very sketchy. He was “created” by TPTB.

        His disregard for human life is appalling.

        I thought Bush Jr., was evil.

        Obama takes the word evil to a whole new level.
        Now I know why Putin grins like a Cheshire cat in Obama’s presence. He knows he doesn’t have to do anything to destroy America – our country’s “Commander In Chief” is doing it for him.

    I feel sorry for this man as he looks at what he and his dad have suffered and fought for, his dad more than likely fought in WWI he in WWII or Korea or maybe both.
    I think it’s time to cut your losses and prepare for what’s coming. I don’t think it will be a total collapse, but a gradual stair stepping to less and less complexity. What that means to the average person is more crime a lower standard of living and more corrupt and stupid government. A society increasingly splitting along the lines of race, class, region, rural VS urban. The world will become more violent and more polarized.
    I’m not going into the reasons. Those have been discussed on this blog.

    The good news is that eventually the system will collapse because math has no political party affiliation.

        Doesn’t the Bible state that God is holding leaders to a high standard since He put them there? I assume He isn’t any more thrilled with their abuse of the nations populace any more than we are.

        • Sven

          This crap was all going on before the Bible, Torah or any other freak religion out there. It’s called human nature. We humans need to recognize this here and now and oust the sociopaths from positions of power. How do we do that? By creating communities for ourselves that will eventually lead to the decentralization of governments de facto.

        • otter1111

          In your replies you have called people idiots multiple times, numnuts, stupid, and asleep. You might want to be more civil in your disagreements. You won’t convince people of anything by belittling them or using condescending remarks.

          Anyway, I listen to Rush on occasion, but if he agrees with my point of view, or vice versa, so what? I don’t know of any talking points he puts out, but if they are true and support your opinion, what’s wrong with that? That’s another example of destroying the messenger.

          • gwen cat

            Those people I called idiots because they were bashing the poor. If you judge others, you are insulting them. Also, those same people called me an Obama phone lover, and basically said I was a thief just because I was defending the poor! You people love to bash people when it comes to sticking up for the poor but have no problem when the money is going to the money grubbing corporations> You say you are poor victimized Christians but yet you say mean , hurtful things about the poor and get mad when they insult you back. True Christians do not judge others that way.

    I too am an old veteran. What do you expect? We put the country in the care of lawyers!
    They are the oldest profession! They outclassed the other “oldest” profession a long time ago.
    Lawyers work for money. The more money the better lawyer one can afford. Most of the Congress has a law degree.
    I confess to being jealous of their success in padding their own bank accounts at public expense. I am jealous of their ability to get people of their own free will to do what they want. That is superb salesmanship!
    What I do object to is the communistic and socialist laws implemented on all of us, not just veterans. When I was 6, the rules rewarded people that worked. At 71, the rules have changed drastically. The rules reward the lazy.
    But what do you expect? The lawyers are the laziest bunch in the entire country. They have set the aristocratic rules to favor themselves.
    The rules also say you have limited choices at the election box. That means that even if you wanted to throw them out it is not possible to do so. They wrote the rules.
    That all of this might be the actions of immortal beings like Satan is very tempting. Especially considering that slick tongued lawyers put it all together.
    Where was the public when all this was put together? Where was the news services that allowed it to go without too much objection? Why I guess 6% of the population own most of the media. Guess what doesn’t get reported by them?
    Now consider a young black lawyer from Illinois . . .
    What is he all about? What religion does he practice? Where was he born? What has he said and where does he stand on issues? Those questions and more were not asked in the right halls of power. Anything else doesn’t matter. Tell me what I want to hear then do what ever you please.
    Put candidates that are obviously bad choices up against him for office. Now that is a conspiracy backed by facts!
    Come on, the first candidate was a POW at Hotel Hilton?
    The second made his fortune by laying factory workers off? Where did these candidates come from, who decided they were good opponents in an election for President?
    By the way, if you make more than approximately 36,000 a year you no longer have VA Health Benefits and that includes social security and pensions are counted towards that money and it includes any income your wife makes. That was Bush by executive order not a vote from Congress that wouldn’t have touched that with a ten foot pole.
    Until the system of getting these lawyers elected is not a stacked deck in their favor, nothing will change.

    • otter1111

      I agree that lawyers are a huge part of the problem, which is one reason why I’m very pessimistic for our country’s future.

    They’ve been able to determine the day and approximate time of Jesus Christ’s crucifixion and passing is April 3, 33AD at the hour of 2:00 pm. This letter is dated as an anniversary of that day by 1,980 years!

    • Frank Lomuscio

      Wrong year! Exodus 12:1-27 instructs that the Passover Lamb is be killed on the 14th day of the first month, which is Abib/Nisan (april). The Hebrew date, 14th Nisan, in their year 3790 and in the year 30 A.D., fell on a Wednesay. In the Gregorian calendar April 3, fell on Wednesday. The 14th of Nisan (april) in 33 A.D. fell on a Friday but Jesus was born in 3 B.C. The 33 A.D. date would make Him 36 1/2 years old at His Death. The Biible states that Jesus was 30 years old when He began His Ministry, which lasted for 3 1/2 years. He died at 33 years of age in the year 30 A.D. The hour of His Death was at 3 pm, or the ninth hour of the day. The sixth hour of the day was at noon.

    I do not say this lightly, my dad fought in WW2, I have three engineering degrees, I love America, but it is in big trouble, we are now run by criminals, fools, and thugs.
    Let me say another obvious….the corruption will get way worse, in time the government will come after the citizens directly, first they will try to disarm us.
    I would say 90%+ of everyone I know and work with fear the future and are at least somewhat aware that they are in danger, not from the middle east, but from Washington DC.
    How terrible this all is, and how sad.

      NEVER give up your weapons. We are gonna need ’em. The ONLY thing holding the jackals at bay is private ownership of weapons of self-defense by so many Americans. If that goes, we are well and truly (fill in the blank).

    When they tell you to kill Syrians for bankers, remember this letter.

    Planet Popcorn baby! Best on planet earth direct from Malaysia!

    In all seriousness though, I feel quite shafted and won’t take this collapse lightly. Thanks a ton to all of the turds who don’t care about civics or are too stupid to comprehend the creeping maw of hell you’ve subjected us all to through widespread and virulent, willful and deliberate denial and ignorance.

    Unfortunately, my generation and later is powerless to stop this. Too young in the 80’s to have a say or even examine the data which our parents were oblivious to anyway. 90’s too stupid and caught up in the school rat race to really get it, though I could feel the murmurs through cognitive dissonance. 00’s Okay, finally got it, but no one would listen. 10’s Well now it’s too damn late for an orderly transition to something that can be sustained.

    To the few who have been ringing bells for the last 40 years. Thanks, good try. At least you’re better prepared than the bulk of zombies out there.

    In the end all of this is the fault of everyone that has ever voted for a Democrat thinking they will tax some poor other fellow and fund a program for them as if they are entitled to the fruit of someone else’s labour by gov’t force.

    • Gay Veteran

      you’re ignorant if you think there is any difference between the 2 parties

      • Shamus

        Obama’s first election, was the first time I voted Democrat in my life. I disagreed with most of his views, but my allegiance was with my fellow Veterans. He PROMISED to bring them home. McCain was for “indefinite” warfare. So I voted against my party, against my father, against my second amendment (which I’ve been fighting to protect ever since) …and wouldn’t you know it. I might as well voted in McCain, with the added suffering to the Second Amendment! No matter who got voted in, the same result occurred! One sold war, the other sold peace, but WAR RAGES INDEFINITELY.

        • Gay Veteran

          yep, the 2 parties are 2 heads of the same beast!

        Who was it that opposed the Bankster Bailouts? Conservative Republicans

        Who was it that opposed ObamaCare? Conservative Republicans
        – ObamaCare established the precedent of high deductables, which corporate America has now adopted. For the first time in 27 years of employer provided coverage thanks be to Barry, I now have deductables for the same insurance premium as before.

        • Gay Veteran

          uh, and liberal Democrats opposed the bankster bailouts too. Didn’t do much good, did it?
          Obamacare? greatest gift the insurance companies ever received (well, that and being exempt from monopoly laws)

  • Rebecca in TN

    I think the solution is a simple one. Mass financial non-compliance. But almost everyone would have to do it, which takes a lot of courage. If a thousand people refuse to pay their mortgages or car payments, they will have their homes and vehicles repossessed. If the entire country refused, then the bankers would be powerless to do anything to us. But unfortunately, this will never happen because everyone is afraid. I can’t stop paying for my bills hoping everyone else will jump on the bandwagon because the sheeple will not.

  • dahl48

    Jesse Ventura has been saying this & campaigning these facts for 20-30 years! What’s good for US, should be the same for ALL elected officials !!!

  • Gay Veteran

    “…what is it now, about 49 or 50 million on food stamps – pretty much all Democrat voters – and the program is absolutely rife with fraud….”

    Sounds like an old reactionary. Interesting that the letter didn’t say anything about the military-industrial complex (which he and his father served), the national security/surveillance state, or the banksters that are destroying this country.

  • “MJM”

    Pay no attention to George Soros behind the curtain.

  • Darrell Pierce

    It’s designed to collapse. Then you know what the fix will be don’t you? Single payer managed by the Feral Govt. (spelling intentional for all you spell checkers out there)

  • C. M. Novess III

    This great experiment in freedom, this American republic, is dead. It cannot be revived or rescued, rebuilt or renovated. It requires a return to the rule of law – respect for the Constitution as presently constituted – and cleaning out AF all elected and un-elected officers of government along with the top layers of management of the government workforce and the elimination of the illegal and questionable entities that have been created by all these hacks at our expense. We must take the government and nation back … The ballot box is probably not up to the task.

  • dave

    as long as the “progressives” and “elites” are writing and passing the laws for the country, they will never do anything outside the law. Reminiscent of Hitler-pre WWII.
    We need to throw out all of the bums, at every level of government, that conveniently forgets the oath they took to uphold the constitution and protect our country from all enemies, foreign and domestic…even as they appear to be the domestic enemies!

    • Gay Veteran

      yeah, not like “conservatives” took us into a war of aggression against Iraq!

      • Kulture War

        Democrats voted for it, too. It was approved by both houses, Gaylord.

  • That is sad to read as a Conservative and a younger Veteran myself…

  • Pick Up That Can

    Great, so you wrote a letter. What a game changer. *sigh

    • devildogcharlie

      and you write a childish comment..

  • Joe

    It is really sad to read that letter even though I am not American.

    Obama has the gut to ask his soldiers to fight for the same terrorist group that killed their brothers in the Afghan war. I am gobsmacked.

  • SovereignMary

    Beautifully written and poignant letter!

    Drop dead Fred. If we should ever meet I’d be happy to help you on your way to paradise.

  • erheault

    No matter how many times the public gets screwed by their own government they still push the D button for more freebies and less freedom Viva Food Stamps, Viva free medical, I want mine NOW so what if I don’t want a job it is my right to have it all so Gimmie its mine.

  • Paul

    You know why people aren’t revolting? You are all so busy bugging in and bugging out
    when you all should be laying siege on your slave masters in Washington D.C.. I believe was said when the declaration of independence was signed ,”Gentlemen
    If we don’t hang together we will most assuredly all hang separately”. You all
    should be together in the millions down there in Washington D.C. reclaiming
    your constitutional rights. If you stay as individuals in your bunkers you will
    be enslaved one by one. Unite, be strong in your resolve and take back your

    Keep your powder dry

      Paul, This is not an anarchy. Insulting your Cmmdr-in-Chief is a traitorous act.

      The leader once elected by “we the people” represents the entire nation (not merely a party). You have no “choice” in this matter: in a joint effort with him leading, you must follow him-Congress-Supreme Court triad.

      Indeed if he over-steps his bounds then you have two other sides of the triad to protect you. He is the head: you submit to the son of a muslim.
      Secondly you have no choice: forever and now everytime you use electricity, cable, gas, buy any food, sell anything or earn, you pay tax and inflation priced into the product – you pay for the trillion dollar debt to support Islam and liberate muslims in the past. If you have kids, family, friends – they all pay too. They will do till the end of their natural lives. There is no way out.

      Finally relax -we the people – voted in a son of a muslim, Our best friends (of the USA) are muslim nations were they host our bases. The world’s largest democracy and largest muslim population are where all U.S jobs are outsourced (India). Question is – do you understand all this? Answer: it doesn’t even matter ! That’s the interesting part. It doesn’t matter whether you agree, whether you understand – all that matters is you live, you pay.

  • Scott

    Beautifully done. While what is coming is a major concern and we will all have to deal with it in some capacity, I cannot help look forward to the comments of those who believe this is a good thing when they get hit with the unintended consequences. I just want to be at the edge to see their faces as they ride the bus of ignorance over the cliff of fiscal irresponsibilty.

  • Sandbagger

    All those who gain power are controlled through manipulation. They are all blackmailed and thus, are unable and unwilling to “do what is right”. They pass whatever is required of them by their handlers.

    Our Republic has degenerated into a pile of horse s*it.

    Cases in point-Where’s Obama’s legitimate birth certificate? What about Building 7?

    Never mind. The new fall season on tv is about to begin. :)

  • Alan Wakefield

    Obamacare is not and cannot be legal because obama IS NOT a U.S. citizen. He has no authority to sign a bill into law.

  • TrueMor

    so you saying if your muslim, you have to be anti-american?

  • Poor excuse for journalism

    Pardon me, but I feel it necessary to state that you and your readers are absolute morons. With such quality articles as “Precious little girl dismembered…” and the like, you are as guilty as the idiots on the far left for the sad state of affairs. Publish news, not sensationalist garbage.
