To the Editor:
I have been out of town so I am late in responding to my neighbor, Joanna Swansonâ€™s diatribe of Aug. 1, detailing Obamaâ€™s â€śwants.â€ť Regardless of the manner by which politicians garner votes, they generally fit the same psychological/sociological patterns. She obviously has little knowledge or insight about the â€śpowerâ€ť of the presidency and the likelihood that Obama, or any other president, â€śgivesâ€ť anything to the groups she identifies.
If Mrs. Swanson took the time to investigate valid opinions of respected experts, outside the veil of Fox News, she would find that Mr. Obama scores very poorly on the index of socialism. I wonder if she realizes how comfortable her life has been living in our social-democracy?
Mrs. Swanson is not so clever in her inclusion of terms â€śmaybe communist,â€ť and â€śAnti-Christ,â€ť to realize that she is promoting the very worst unfounded suspicions in your readers. All the denials in the world cannot disguise the fact that a large group of influential people in this country decided at the time of Obamaâ€™s election, that they would not stand for a â€śblack manâ€ť in our White House. The absolute obstruction by those parties, and the Tea Party particularly, of efforts to heal the nationâ€™s difficulties is nothing other than the vilest form of racism because it impacts all of us, white, black, brown, yellow, etc.!
The major problem at this time is the failure by reasonably intelligent voters to think! Think about what they actually know and donâ€™t know. Think about life under the radical group that wants to control our rights, particularly womenâ€™s rights. Think about the likelihood of another war in which our children will be used as cannon fodder!
