Why he’s on the liberal hate list

To the editor: 

I belong to the NRA. I also am flat out in favor of the flat tax. If that isn’t enough to put me on the liberal hate list, I also favor reining in or eliminating redundant, ineffective or stupid government agencies. Would that in itself be redundant?

How about voter photo I.D.? As far as I can tell, the only votes it may suppress are the second, third, fourth, etc.

Is changing Medicare and Social Security as we know it a bad thing? Couldn’t we at least talk about it? After all, the way we know it is going broke.

I don’t listen to talk radio. I used to always listen to network news, which is probably why I had a low opinion of Bush. After Obama said we shouldn’t watch Fox News I had to find out why. The reason was obvious. They don’t pander to Obama.

The networks still twist, edit or omit certain news or events unfavorable to their agenda. As an example, did anyone see the estimated 400,000 to 600,000 pro-life demonstrators on the networks? Of course not, they were all too busy covering the few hundred anti-gun protesters. (Fox showed both by the way. )

People forget who started two wars and caused this financial mess. Turns out it wasn’t just Bush. Congress actually voted for the wars.

I had also forgotten that for the last two years of the Bush years, Democrats controlled both houses of Congress. Maybe it’s time we should quit blaming Bush and admit that it is our fault for keeping in office people who should probably be kept in jail.

It’s a good thing we have each other, my friends. It will likely be up to us to clean up the mess when the Washington, D.C., cesspool implodes on itself.
