Intelligent voters need to use their brainsWritten by Admin
To the Editor:
I have been out of town so I am late in responding to my neighbor, Joanna Swansonâs diatribe of Aug. 1, detailing Obamaâs âwants.â 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 âpowerâ of the presidency and the likelihood that Obama, or any other president, âgivesâ 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 âmaybe communist,â and âAnti-Christ,â 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 Obamaâs election, that they would not stand for a âblack manâ in our White House. The absolute obstruction by those parties, and the Tea Party particularly, of efforts to heal the nationâs 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 donât know. Think about life under the radical group that wants to control our rights, particularly womenâs rights. Think about the likelihood of another war in which our children will be used as cannon fodder!
