Letter to the Editor

Writer Decries Wasteful Spending

web posted January 24, 2012

Dear Editor:
This Letter to The Editor is about the wasteful; and what I would classify as fraudulent; spending by our Fed., State, and local governments by forcing taxpayers to pay taxes; on their properties, and yet getting very, very little services in return! I do not know the exact figures, but in regards to the do-nothing, and fraudulent crowds at Brookhaven School Administration, The SC State Dept. of Education, and the Federal government; I am convinced that the e-mail, and paper trail that I have gotten over the past month, clearly shows the definite “passing-of-the-buck” from US Sen. Jim DeMint’s Office, to the SC Dept. of Education, to the Aiken crowd of do-nothings at Brookhaven Aiken Co. School Administration! 

I will ask you; the tax-payers; “Should this ( passing-of-the-buck ) be tolerated when I specifically told these agencies about the terrible conditions at six school buildings in Aiken Co. ?”

Let me pose the question: “When you pay for goods at the grocery store, the department stores, the automobile technicians, excitera; you not only get the goods that you pay for, but you even have the FREEDOM to shop around for the best products for the price that you are willing to pay! 

Do John and Jane Citizen have the FREEDOM to do this when being charged by the government for taxes? I truly believe that EVERBODY knows the answer!” Fellow citizens, this is not a question of Republicans and Democrats, this is the definite situation that waste, fraud, and very, very much excessive salaries to do-nothing politicians and beaurocrats and “supposedly; public servants, are getting 6 to 10 times more; in salaries; than the average “people that are truly the workers” of this nation!

To close, “I will urge and challenge everyone to please, please stop being “sheep-being-led-to-financial-slaughter”, but let us band together to STOP the financial classest system, because WE ARE THE ONLY ONES THAT WILL DO IT !
