Glenn Beck:An Open Letter to the Government
A Glenn Beck viewer or listener sent Glenn Beck an open letter to the government through email. Although the letter is not in eloquent prose, it does a fantastic job of summing up the feelings that many Americans have. This letter is something that you absolutely must read.
The author first states several things that really bother her about our government or they way they are handling certain topics. These include:
- Illegal Immigration
- Cap and Trade
- Universal Healthcare
- Growing government control
- Redistribution of Wealth
- Charitable Contributions
- Corporate Bailouts
- Transparency and Accountability
- Unprecedented Quick Spending
Do you really think I find humor in the hiring of a speed 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.
The letter then goes on to mention several other things that have been in the news recently. Do you remember when Americans complained about our representatives not reading a bill before voting for it? Did you also see where our government cynically hired a speed reader/talker to read a bill into the record? Somehow, they just don’t get it.
Just the other night, they passed a bill in the middle of the night to get it passed. They closed debate and sent everybody home. Then they called for an emergency vote. Nearly 1/3 of the house could not get back in time. Many showed up sleepy eyed dress in t-shirts and shorts to vote for or against. Is this the hope and change that America voted for?
Both parties seem to believe that they are in charge and what we say doesn’t matter.
I don’t agree 100% with everything this woman wrote, but pretty close to it. If you get a chance to read it, please do. You can find it here. Also, Glenn Beck has a petition going for people to sign on to the letter. I can’t imagine that after reading the letter, you wouldn’t want to sign on.
