This is a “wake up call” for Congressman, Senator, President, assemblyman, et al.
Dear _________________________, [aka, blabbermouth extraordinaire]
I am contacting you because of the importance, between taking my kid to the doctor and trying to keep a roof over my head. What with working overtime to pay for the taxes that government at all levels is levying on us. And before searching for a new job because my present one is ending, I took the time to write your office because that is just how important it is. I do hope you appreciate it.
Please be advised, whatever you and your colleagues are doing is NOT working. I would have said “is wrong” but that implies a judgment and I know how you frown on that. And private citizens are not supposed to make those, especially about government and elected officials, or their duties.
But it is not working nor has it been for some time. It is just an illusion you and your cohorts labor under: that government is operating under rules and ethical conduct, according to some invisible principles – which no one can see a trace of – and that it delivers in kind.
However, wake up, it is not working! And it will not as long as you apply the same logic and misguided effort that you all have thus far.
Government is not to serve you, your friends, supporters and distinguished cronies. It is not a personal tool, so stop treating it like your sandbox.
Government of, by, and for the people has been replaced by “Government”– of government, for government, by government And the two concepts have nothing in common. That in mind, it is time to restore the foundation on which this leviathan now rests
It is possible that this will be the last time you hear from an American concerned for the future of this country. There seem to be fewer and fewer of them every year, judging by the number of voters who participate in our “process” and their results.
So be advised, you have been warned. You may ignore the will of the people now, but you will not even hear an echo of those concerned voices in the future. You and your comrades are killing off that voice. Many of them still shell-shocked about our current condition. Instead, all you will likely receive are thousands of “Dear Santa” letters whenever people want something, and you will have to comply with them. So now it is time for you to decide. While I go back to my immediate responsibilities, it would be nice if you took your oath and responsibilities seriously enough to act on them as well.
Your stubborn constituent
