To the Editor: In response to Mr. Charles Lennon’s Letter to the Editor on Nov. 2, I would like to add one other trait that shows a “lack of integrity” — the assassination of another person’s character by insinuations, speculation and your particular beliefs.
I am sure that Mr. Lennon did not have any one person in mind when he wrote that living a lie was using a fake social security number, not having a legitimate birth certificate that could be found by Gov. Abernathy of Hawaii, was a foreign student in college, was adopted as a Muslim from Indonesia, and is a fraud. This sounds like things I have heard about our President without facts to back them up.
Surely Mr. Lennon did not want us to think he was talking about our President when he wrote this. This would be a lack of integrity in my mind. Letters to the Editor should be factual, truthful and provable.
To the Editor: Karl Marx stated that the best way to take a country into a socialistic society is by socializing medicine. Socialistic medicine gets people dependent on the government. From socialistic medicine it spreads to other parts of society. “Obamacare” is a big step in that direction.
Facts show that some 49 percent of our population now receives a monthly government check of some form (Source: U.S. Census).
Our politicians used extreme measures to get “Obamacare” enacted into law. As an example, one politician — Louisiana Senator Mary Laudriux — was promised $300,000,000 for her state in exchange for her vote. “Obamacare” is not about health care, it is about power.
Socialism did not just begin under President Obama; it began noticeably under President Woodrow Wilson. It got a big boost under President Franklin D. Roosevelt, and President Lyndon Johnson helped it along with his war on poverty. “Obamacare” will take the movement a step further.
Writers and some politicians have stated that “Obamacare” will comprise some one-sixth of our nation’s economy when fully implemented. Is that what the politicians and liberals really want?
It has been said that the media forms the fourth branch of our government and perhaps the most influential. They could stop the slide toward socialism if they so desired. What would patriots like Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson and Patrick Henry say about our present state of affairs? Would they be proud of us?
How about let’s stop the state of free fall before it is too late.
