Just the Fax, Senator.

My latest letter to our pole-iticians.  It was faxed to every senator that published a fax number on his/her web page, as well as the news outlets listed in the CC block.

Senators,

It is with a heavy heart that I write this letter.  As the polls taken all over the country indicate, Americans increasingly do not trust Mr. Obama, and we increasingly do not trust you.  You may ask why this may be so.  Let me scratch the surface.

During his campaign, Mr. Obama promised “transparency.”  He promised that everything about his administration would be out in the open for all to see.  All of you applauded.  What has been the reality since the election of Mr. Obama?  We have an $800 billion non-stimulating stimulus package that was crammed down our throats with lots of back room deals and cloak-and-dagger secrecy.  The promised review periods?  Never happened.  “Czar” and cabinet appointments?  Secret appointments of unknown, un-vetted people who would never be able to get a job in our government if there were any investigation of their backgrounds.  Now you are racing to pass legislation which on its face is excessively burdensome, and at its core is unconstitutional.  Many of you insult us and say we don’t need time to read the bill because it’s too complex for us to understand.  Many of you call those of us who question the need for this bill “racist,” “Nazis,” “un-American,” or worse.  Some of you stir up fear and say if we don’t act now, millions will die.  Similar hollow promises and threats were made when many House and Senate members were hoodwinked into voting for the stimulus bill.  We were promised that the unemployment would not go above 8%, and that the economy would immediately turn around if we let you spend this $800 billion dollars.  You lied.  Even worse, most of the money in the bill is not stimulus related.  It is mostly political payoff and pork.  Recently a few of you actually listened to your constituents and have pushed for an amendment that would require the bill to be available for public review for 3 days before any vote on it.  Once again, those of you seeking power for yourselves at the expense of American taxpayers sent us a loud and clear message.  You think that we work for you.  You think we just need to be quiet because you are smarter than any of us and therefore know better than we do what is good for America.  Those of you who voted to continue lying to Americans know who you are, and so do we.

As you continue to push for this massive reform of healthcare, and ultimately a government takeover of the entire system, any rational person must ask “why?”  If the baby’s bath water is cold and/or dirty, you simply change the water.  You are throwing out the baby and keeping the dirty water.  It would take me more pages than you will ever read to dissect what is wrong with the reform bill(s) being shoved through the house and senate right now.  You haven’t read any legislation passed in the last year (maybe more), so why would I expect you to read this letter.  The one thing all of us can agree on is that healthcare costs are too high.  Why?  Two primary reasons: (1) government involvement, and (2) trial lawyers.  Yet what does this bill do?  It has the government that can’t run the Post Office, or manage the government run healthcare we already have take over even more of the healthcare industry, and it ignores tort reform.  Then there are the simple economic principles of supply and demand.  Because even today you will not allow doctors to refuse ANYONE healthcare if they show up at a hospital (especially illegal aliens), and you allow many frivolous lawsuits against those doctors and hospitals with outrageous settlements, you have driven, and will drive more of the BEST doctors from practice.  There will be millions more people to be covered under your mandatory plan and fewer doctors to treat them.  It doesn’t add up to anything but healthcare rationing, and a lower quality of healthcare.  Who will decide who gets healthcare and who does not?  Under this bill, it will be you.  Even if I can afford better healthcare, you will not allow me to get it.  Yet to add insult to injury, since you are all so superior to the rest of us, you will not be forced to take part in this abortion of a plan.  What should put the final nail in the coffin of this plan is the fact that we will have no choice in whether or not we buy the government healthcare.  We will be fined $1,900 to $25,000 if we don’t buy government healthcare, or face jail time.  We are told that our taxes will not go up, yet the IRS is the primary enforcement agent of this plan.  Something rotten in Denmark (or Washington), wouldn’t you say?  Do you see why so many Americans are angry about this?  I didn’t think so.

The way you are treating Americans amounts to tyranny.  For those of you who haven’t read the definition, it means the arbitrary or unrestrained despotic exercise and abuse of power or authority.  Here’s the funniest part about this.  Those of you abusing your positions actually think you will matter when all is said and done.  In reality you are being used as useful idiots.  Do you remember the “czars” I mentioned earlier?  With his use of the “czars” and several other slashes he has taken at the constitution, Mr. Obama is rendering you irrelevant.  As soon as he gets what he wants, you will all no longer matter.  And you are the ones letting it happen.  Sadly, what is worse is that we the people will no longer have the government our founding fathers envisioned which worked FOR the people.  Nor will we have the chance to peacefully continue or regain it.

I will end with words from the Declaration of Independence, words which reflect the brilliance of our founding fathers to those who love freedom.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. …”

I will also remind you of the oath of office that you swore upon taking office.

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.

Mr. or Ms. Senator, it is my duty and our duty as Americans to do whatever is necessary to preserve our constitution, our freedom, our republic, and our way of life.  An increasing number of Americans are becoming aware of that responsibility with each passing day.  We will fight to the end to preserve these things.  The only question is whether we will do it with or without your help.

Sincerely,

/// SIGNED ///
