How much is enough?
An editorial
Murdock Todd Cote (Doc)

How much is enough? How much do we let a letter get away with? Come November 2006, the democrats are favored to regain the House of the Representatives and maybe a few seats in the Senate. Now today all we can do is pray for a miracle in the fall. I know there are some republicans who are good people who are middle to liberal in a lot of circumstances on a lot of bill’s which are brought before him or her. But sadly they are outnumbered by the conservative right and the religious zealots who back them in the house and the senate.

If our vote does not work enough come November 2006, then I hope they know the consequences for their betrayal to the American people; because I see a storm on the horizon - a man made storm. The American People will only take so much and instead of the vote or the pen they will pick up the gun to restore their freedom. Restore their bill of rights, their constitution, their declaration of Independence and take back what was stolen from them; it will be a storm that will shake the universe and Mr. Bush will learn what happens when religion and politics ride in the same cart, the willow wind follows.

You have sewn the wind, now reap the whirlwind; your crime is against every American, your policy’s our inhuman. They say Bill Clinton disgraced the office. I say no it is the far right Republicans and you who have disgraced the Presidency with your policy’s of bigotry, inhumanity toward your own people. You’ve red taped assistance so much the disabled, the mentally ill, the poor, and the low income can not get enough food stamps to have enough food to survive not even a month.

You know why social security is insolvent well lets just see eight years of Ronald Reagan, six years of Richard Nixon, four years of George H.W Bush the present president’s father, to pay for the cold war military build up in the sixty’s, seventies and eighties and for some weapons programs in the ninety’s they robbed peter to pay Paul. In English they raided the social securities fund to pay for foolishness and weapons systems that do not work like the v-stall assault aircraft. To put it bluntly was a pile of garbage that never worked; you know why they tried to design a rotary aircraft to perform like a harrier. That dog is not going to hunt; basically it’s a day late and a dollar short. In my forty three years of life lockeed-martain was the only company to come up with viable military aircraft both strike and transport, Boeing did very well with the B1 and B2 and the daunted B52 Super fortress.

The military was not the only thing the Republican National Party fracked up on, second would be domestic policy, they have cut food assistance, and education, medical care and they also red trapped a lot of what is left so those who need it won’t get it. In my eyes Mr. Bush, you and your party are trying to sell something and the people don’t get it because you blame the DNC and call people your people perverts because they are members of the LGBT community, or they have different values then. You as I have seen have violated the church and state amendment in basing government decisions on your own religious values. The example stem cell research, research that could save lives; cure disease.

You cut and wrapped in red tape food assistance. You want to balance the budget cut all aid packages off the board, both military and civil when it comes to foreign aide; except in humanitarian disasters. Withdraw our military from the ETO - and our Navy from the Mediterranean, and the middle-east. Work out a joint base for the military at Diego Garcia on the Pacific Indian Ocean Border, were we would remove the military from Japan; but would still be able to launch a strike force for Korea. In the Atlantic command I would also work out a joint base at Scappa Flow and Gibraltar. Everything else would be returned to home waters and bases. That would cut a couple of billion on the budget that is what I would do if I were president and actually had a real MBA from Harvard. I hope things change for the best peacefully, but if it don’t Mr. Bush you will be the first President to start a civil war not north and south but all fifty states throwing the carpet bag government and it’s corruption into the sea. I pray now and will pray it does not come to that. God Bless the United States and may his unending light shine upon her.
