Elected Officials Are Fundamentally Dishonest

To the Editor:

This letter was forwarded to Barack Obama, John Boehner, Chris Murphy, Dick
Blumenthal, Elizabeth Esty, and Harry Reid:

I live in Sandy Hook, CT. My family and close friends weren't harmed on
December 14. That day impacted 26 families with an indescribable, staggering
pain and anguish. For most of Sandy Hook, it merely affected us with an
inescapable intensity of sadness and grief.
Gun control has long been a focus of many in this country.

Though I'm not knowledgeable of all the nuances of the Second Amendment,
based on the Founding Fathers' circumstances, it had far more to do with
enabling the citizenry to protect themselves against tyrannical government
than against local psychopaths. It is about providing a balanced firepower
so when King George's successor came knocking on your door, you could fight
back. Government today is no less inclined to abuse its authority than it
was then. Based on the absurd and ongoing power grab that is present day
Washington, it's as threatening as ever.

That so many of you view the NRA with its resistance to further restrictions
on firearms as intransigent lunatics has far more to do with how you conduct
yourselves in office than it does with the NRA's actions.

You in public office are fundamentally dishonest people. You lead lives of
deception at every turn, structuring your lives as comfortably as you can
while governing with an indifference and arrogance that is absolutely
maddening. When the country is reeling from financial disaster, you waste a
trillion dollars on a health care bill we can't afford and you've never
read. You claim it's critical because health care costs are killing this
country... no they're not, you are! You are killing this country. You
endorse the ongoing slaughter of millions of unborn children and whine when
terrorists are water boarded.

You can't lecture us right in Newtown High School about not doing enough to
keep our children safe, while simultaneously slaughtering the unborn. You
fabricate the intense, media laden drama of the fiscal cliff and lack the
courage to do anything about truly reforming the obscene gluttony of
government. You know you'll be out of office before the bill comes due… you
don't care and have no integrity nor honor.

You lie whenever and wherever you need to to move forth your agenda. Were
you able, you would purge the US of guns… every last gun in the country, if
you could. So please forgive Wayne LaPierre and those of us who don't trust
you as far as we can spit. You're a dishonest lot, motivated by a distorted
worldview. If mass murder prevention were truly your goal, you would welcome
armed security wherever needed. It is outrageous that we protect our money
with far more firepower than we protect our children.

I have never owned a gun, nor wanted to as intensely as right now. You'll
stop restricting guns when only you have them.

I couldn't have said it better myself. The sad thing is that it will be completely ignored. Those in Washington do not care about the people that elected them, just that they got elected. Our government is a group of overpaid narcissists that would sell you, me, and anyone else for the chance to put a little coin in their pockets.

Good find,tater.
Too bad this letter won't receive the publicity it deserves

(BTW,if this was a letter to multiple officials, you shouldn't have titled this thread "..to Obama". People ignore your BHO posts. BHO is a symptom,not the cause.
If you take a look at McCain's sponsors and sources of income,i don't think there would have been any difference in the presidency.Romney,either.

Gun control is not about guns, it's about control.

The blind sheep army of their messiah will be along shortly to condemn you for posting this and call it an outright lie as the truth is not on their agenda's. LOL
The truth is about power grab control which the gimmerats are getting more and more today. Hitler, Stalin and other dictators started this way. Do the history, without it we will repeat it.

Anyone with a fifth grade education should know by now that its all about communist control of America. The guns are their largest obstacle and registration is their key to knowing where they are. The fact of the right to protect ones self is ignored by progressives because they know that we will protect our rights in full. Progressives are quite content now and of the belief that they will win. They could be right as the regime has passed out the candy and have overcome the 50% of the voter block with hand outs. Time will tell if they don't run out of other peoples money they could do it this time. If it happens it will take a civil war to end their power grab so if you give up your guns or tell them where they are your toast.

The projected debt increase is expected to be around 22 to 24 billion total in the next 4 years. This machine that is running on auto pilot has to be fed fuel or it will stop running and if that happens who will feed the people? You maybe right after all.
