An Open Letter to the President - Lou Pritchett

This morning as I was settling in to write today's blog post I decided first to check my e-mails. I had decided the post would be a commentary on Sarah Palin's kinda sorta over the top remarks published on her Facebook page about what Obama's health care plan would mean, and Nancy Pelosi's definitely over the top statement that anti Obama health health care activists and protesters where UN-American.

A lot has been posted on this blog about Presidents Obama's socialist/Marxist philosophy, and why all Americans should be concerned about the President's agenda and rapid leftward shift. Our very quality of life and our liberties are at stake, as is the nation's long term financial viability and stability .

Back to my e-mail and the relevance to today's blog post. As I ran through my mail I found one of particular interest and very poignant. I think it sums up the fears many have with the direction this President's is taking us in, the policy decisions he has made thus far, and his philosophy of governance. As I read it I realized it had to become today's post. It needs no introduction and speaks strongly to issues that should give us all pause.

An Open Letter to President Obama

Dear President Obama;

You are the thirteenth President under whom I have lived and unlike any of the others, you truly scare me.

You scare me because after months of exposure, I know nothing abut you.

You scare me because I do not know how you paid for your expensive Ivy League education and your upscale lifestyle and housing with no visible signs of support.

You scare me because you did not spend the formative years of youth growing up in America and culturally you are not an American.

You scare me because you have never run a company or met a payroll.

You scare me because you have never had military experience , thus don't understand it at it's core.

You scare me because you lack humility and 'class', always blaming others.

You scare me because for over half your life you have aligned yourself with radical extremists who hate America and you refuse to publicly denounce these radicals who wish to see America fail.

You scare me because you are a cheerleader for the 'blame America' crowd and deliver this message abroad.

You scare me because you want to change America to a European style country where the government sector dominates instead of the private sector.

You scare me because you want to replace our health system with a government controlled one.

You scare me because you prefer 'wind mills' to responsibly capitalizing on our own vast oil, coal and shale reserves.

You scare me because you want to kill the American capitalist goose that lays the golden egg which provides the highest standard of living in the world.

You scare me because you have begun to use 'extortion' tactics against certain banks and corporations.

You scare me because your own political party shrinks from challenging you on your wild and irresponsible spending proposals.

You scare me because you will not openly listen to or even consider opposing points of view from intelligent people.

You scare me because you falsely believe that you are both omnipotent and omniscient.

You scare me me because the media gives you a free pass on everything you do.

You scare me because you demonize and want to silence the Limbaughs, Hannitys, O'Reillys and Becks who offer opposing conservative points of view.

You scare me because you prefer controlling over governing.

Finally, you scare me because if you serve a second term I will probably not feel safe in writing a similar letter in 8 years.

Lou Pritchett


A lot to think about. A lot to worry about.
