A letter to the Town Hall Meeting protestors….
To the “Protestors” at the town hall meetings:
Where were you when YOUR party took us into an unnecessary and devastating war in Iraq?
Where were you when YOUR party deregulated the banking industry and paved the way for the financial collapse we face now?
Where were you when the previous administration of YOUR party limited access to all public events allowing in only loyal party line people? You wouldn’t even have been let in the door of a town hall meeting by the previous administration after just one of these “protests.”
Where were you when the previous administration of YOUR party put an incompetent bunch of private contractors in charge of the Iraq reconstruction, put A TRILLION dollars in the pockets of crony contractors and got NOTHING for it? Less people have electricity now then during Saddam Hussein’s era.
Where were you when the previous administration of YOUR party whitewashed the investigation of the greatest crime ever perpetrated in the US, better know as 9/11?
Where were you when the previous administration stifled criticism of anything they did as unpatriotic, while circumventing the constitution of this nation (you claim to love) at every turn.
Where were you when the previous administration presided over the torture of foreign captives?
Where were you when the previous administration allowed New Orleans to drown?
Where were you when the previous administration stopped the states from cracking down on the predatory lending practices that contributed to the housing crash?
Where were you when our country was embarrassed in the eyes of the entire world time and time again, with gross incompetence, arrogance and downright stupidity by the previous administration?
So this is what you choose to publicly parade your outrage over? Socializing healthcare? Or the stimulus spending that has saved this country (and YOU) from the brink of an unparalleled collapse, a collapse created by YOUR party’s free-market fundamentalist pipedream? THIS is what you find so important that you will make a public spectacle over it? T HIS is what you choose to execute your right to public protest, (a right honored ONLY by this administration and not the last) Of all the travesties of the past decade, you choose to protest the threat that our broken healthcare system, rated number 37 in the WORLD, and TWICE as expensive as ANYONE else’s, might be “socialized” like England or Canada, (both systems rated much higher than ours) or even taken to a hybrid socialist system like France (rated #1)? Are you really so worried that you might have to contribute a few dollars to insure illegal aliens, that you allow insurance companies to charge you extra thousands in profit for doing NOTHING but trying to DENY YOU COVERAGE?
What the fuck is WRONG with you people? Go back to your knitting circles, or tire shops, or whatever it is you do with your sorry lives, and let the people charged with cleaning up the incredible mess YOUR PARTY made of this once proud country, work in peace. AND TURN OFF FOX NEWS and get a life.
