Mr. President, here are a few things that I don’t need, and perhaps you don’t understand, and you need to realize them.  You see, when you took the Oath of Office, you signed on to lead this country, not sit on the sidelines, whine and cry, and blame George Bush, Big Business, Wall Street, or anyone else you see fit to demonize because you have no clue how to run a country.  But, Mr. President, that is not to say you are clueless in how to implement your agenda.   At one point or another, you are going to have to reckon with the American people.  All of us.

I don’t need you to send your people around the country telling me how great your Health Care Plan is, because you think I don’t understand.  I do understand, completely, what your plan is about, and I don’t want it.  Stay out of my life, my doctor’s office, and everything else.  I am not some uneducated individual that doesn’t understand, or grasp your greatness, and your benevolence.  I know a socialist when I see one.  I grew up in Chicago, and I am self-educated in politics.  I saw you coming the day you announced your candidacy.

I also don’t need your stimulus packages.  Where did you learn how to budget?  Do you even have a concept about how an economy works?   Of course you don’t, because what matters to you is gaining control of as much of it as possible.  What happens to the country after you gain control matters not, just so long as you and your “friends” (people like you don’t have, or make friends, you have alliances of opportunity) benefit from it.

One thing we do need is jobs. I need one, my neighbor needs one.  See, Americans, contrary to what you believe, like to work, earn money, and have a nice living.   We don’t need a government to take care of us.  Maybe some people out there want you to take care of them,  but by and large, the majority of us don’t.   We are self sufficient, intelligent, and fairly well-educated people.  We aren’t stupid, we know what you are up to.  If you pay attention to polls, you would see that we know it, and don’t like it.  But, you don’t pay attention to that, the only thing you and your ilk pay attention to is the expansion of your individual power, and the control of as much as possible, so you can spread the wealth around to those you feel are “oppressed” or “less fortunate”.  The problem with that idea, Mr. President (to paraphrase Margaret Thatcher) is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.

But you will push on with your agenda, because, it’s not about us, the country, prosperity, or anything like that.  It’s about you, it’s about power, and it’s about control.  You and those who surround you are absolutely convinced that you know what is best for everyone, and the rest of us have no clue.  Actually, it’s not what a bout what is best for us, it is what about what is best for you to force us to serve you and the self-appointed elites you surround yourself with.  We are also smart enough to realize something that the sycophants that surround you don’t realize, they are expendable, like I have previously mentioned, they are allies of convenience, to be disposed of when they outlive their usefulness to you.

No amount of TV ads, personal appearances – by you, or someone acting on your behalf – are going to help.  You can’t polish a turd, Mr. President, and that is exactly what you are trying to do.

As a student of history, it doesn’t take much to realize that the old, tired, liberal/socialist ideas haven’t changed in 100+ years.  Your ideas aren’t fresh.  They are old, tired, tried, and tried again, and doomed to failure.  Besides, the fractious nature of all the liberal/socialist groups out there almost guarantees there is going to be some infighting, as each tries to out do the other in the quest for power.

…However once they succeed in overthrowing all existing situations and conditions, these disciples would only begin quarreling among themselves for dominance.  Indeed, that is the hidden aim of all of them.  At present they are fighting in a common cause, but that is in the back of their minds.  The greater their zeal to bring the victory of their new legislation the less intention anyone of them has in obeying it himself.  What they seek is to exploit the misguided masses as the soldiers in their struggles, and then to sacrifice them to their own self-seeking….”  (Alfred Krupp, 1878)

I am sure you know who Alfred Krupp is, Mr. President, I am sure that he was raked over the coals by your Marxist professors as an “evil capitalist”, and, the fact that he was an implacable foe of Socialism.  He was no Ferdinand Lasalle, or Karl Leibknecht, that’s for sure.

The fact of the matter is, Mr. President, we know what you are up to.  It’s amazing to me, though, just how many people out there just can’t see what the rest of us do.  They are blind supporters of you, “useful idiots” in Lenin’s mot. In other words, they will do your bidding, because they are so blinded by your “star power” or whatever it is.  I honestly think many of them think that the legislation, and new taxes, rules, laws, and what not that you have already passed, or trying to pass, will not affect them.  I really think many of these people believe that the new tax laws, health care laws and what not, are for “the other guy” and not them.

Unfortunately, we are stuck with you, as it has been said, “Elections have consequences” and now we are seeing them.  I could go on about the greatness of this country, and how dare you sacrifice it, and what not, but I won’t.  I won’t because I know you don’t care.  This country and sacrifices made to establish it mean nothing to you and those like you.  You pay lip service to it in your speeches, but, I know you ain’t feeling it.  You could care less about everyone in this country, you display your contempt for us daily.  We see it, we feel it, we know it….   And we can’t wait to vote it out of office.
