Writer takes issue with "Spread the Wealth Around" column
posted November 11, 2008
This is in response to the Editor's column
in last week's edition
concerning "Obama's Spread the Wealth" policies. Reading the
my initial contention was - this is someone's opinion of a joke. After
reading the complete article, I'm convinced this individual is nothing
more than a sore loser. I guess spreading the wealth only applies when
tax breaks go to the middle class and poor people. When it goes to the
rich - we don't hear about it because its done in the dead of night.
I suppose in his "America" only those who hold a certain socio-economic
status should be allowed to vote. The problem is America belongs to all
of us. Yes, even those out of work. Barack Obama's campaign appealed to
a large part of America who believe in an America where our strength
lies in our diversity. That the sum is greater than the individual
parts of the equation. I have never written in to a newpaper before,
but I could not allow this distortion (being generous) to go
unchecked. This type of thinking is gobbleegook to those without vision
or intellect. I say its about time! And, Yes We Did!
P.S. I served my country for over 20 years. How about you?

and approved by President Bush during regular sessions of Congress.
