Dear Mr. President --
You can likely tell from my email address where I'm coming from, although I would clarify by saying I am a conservative Liberal.
That means I believe in personal responsibility, standing up for your principals no matter what, and working hard to achieve your goals. In other words, get up, get dressed, and SHOW UP for work. And forgiveness.
And with your election, I again believed I could hold my American grey head high.
You and your wife continue to set a much-needed and refreshingly honorable example to the rest of us. DO NOT CAVE!!!
BECAUSE -- we are ALL fed up with Congress. Tell them to start earning their pay. I now believe in term limits because of their conduct in the past ten years.
Bring BACK the JOBS. Quickly. Reward American companies for staying on AMERICAN SOIL.
Restrict the benefits of members of Congress to those given the American people.
A great quick way to fix the Big Mess would be to pitch out all the rules and regulations since the Constitution, Declaration of Independence, and Bill of Rights. Begin anew with EACH piece of legislation limited to ONE ISSUE/SUBJECT and no more than THREE TYPED PAGES!!!!
A THOUSAND-PAGE Health Care Bill?? Are you kidding?
I support health care reform but cannot answer the criticisms directed at me by my own children (staunch Republicans who get their news from FOXX and Glenn Beck—BLEGGHHH!!!) with regard to this legislative monstrosity.)
Most of us believe it is too late to save this country; we are already too close to the Falls in our rickety old boat.
It would take a miracle to reverse the tide.
And yet, I DO believe in miracles.
