I received a letter in the mail today which I can only assume was in response to My Letter to the President. Something that you must read first for this post to really have any meaning for you.
The letter came back with a picture card of President Obama, thanking me for my ongoing support.
The letter implies that it is a specific response to what I had written a few months ago by beginning in this way:
Each night, I get the chance to read about 10 letters from people across the country. Some are inspiring. Some are heartbreaking. But each one compels me to keep moving forward on this journey we started together. . .” ~Barack Obama
The letter is just once again generic, and at the end they only want my money. Nothing else in the three page letter even so much as indicates that the letter I sent was even read.
Instead the letter goes into the same worn out story we have heard time and time again. About how Republicans are ruining everything and how jobs are important.
Look here Mr. President, it is about so much more than jobs. It is about opportunity. It is about freedom. It is about peace, happiness, generosity and changing the way our corrupt system works.
If you noticed in my letter I specifically requested that he find the courage to stand up and refuse to use campaign funds, to take action and not create slogans, yet the response letter includes a donation form and a return envelope to send money to the Democratic National Committee to fight the Republicans.
Those evil bastards. All of them, thinking that they can just swoon me with recycling logos and use the power of suggestion by implying that I am a democrat and that I have offered my continuing support.
You may or may not have heard of a funny little trick called keep Wall Street Occupied. If you haven’t you should check out how to do this, this short video explains everything.
I have sent back every piece of junk mail stuffed with OWS rantings since this movement began, but writing “get the money out of politics” on the comment card just does not seem like it will be enough. I am open to thoughts, suggestions, ideas and more.
The blatant audacity of them even asking to send money just deserves a legendary response.
In my head taking the money out of politics is key to fixing our broken and corrupt system. I mention that in another old post, which if I am being truthful, is an idea which should be built upon and altered as it certainly has flaws. It too is open for suggestion.
What do you think is the one key to transforming the system? What one change could we make that would alter the way everything else functions? Do you agree that taking the money out of the picture is the answer or do you think something else will be more effective?
Thanks for stopping by the Middle Brick Road, I hope you enjoyed this post. My name is Kacey and I am really big on health and all things natural – freedom – politics and bringing change by abandoning the boxes we too often put ourselves in.
