Letter to the Editor

Writer Urges Voters to Go to the Polls

web posted November 29, 2013

Dear Editor,
This is OUR COUNTRY!  We don’t have to accept the trash coming out of Washington DC that’s being presented to us as “the fruit of the government of the greatest nation on Earth.” The president’s approval rating is 37% and that of Congress is about 9%.  Collectively those we have elected to govern us are unfit to do so.  It’s time for “change that really matters.”

The president will be replaced no later than 2016. Approximately one third of the senate is elected every two years; some 33 in 2014. The 435 members of the US House of representatives are another matter; they are all elected every two years!  So of the 535 members of both chambers of congress, some 468 of them could be replaced in 2014!

Everyone gets to vote for 1 representative and at most 1 senator. Patriotic citizens MUST “take care of business” at the 2014 ballot boxes in their state and congressional district for “change that really matters” to occur.

Finally, due to the states’ congressional district gerrymandering, effective change WILL ONLY happen in the primary elections. So, in order to save the republic YOU must get busy now.  Do it for our kids.
