I am writing to you not as a former Police Chief. Not as a former Business Manager who had to live with budgets and make profits to maintain jobs for our employees. Not as a Preacher. Not as a Republican, Democrat, or Independent. I am writing to you as an American Citizen. As a Christian.
Its time to put politics aside. Its time to reign in President Obama and the extreme left side of The Democratic Party. Republicans you are not blameless either. Its time for both Party's to put their big boy and big girl pants on and put this Country back on the path to greatness again.
Every one knows, whether they will admit it or not, The President's Executive Order on Immigration goes against The Constitution and is unlawful. Every one knows, again whether they will admit it or not, our Country can't afford it. Republicans, every one also knows Americans are a generous people. We aren't going to split families up, send Mother's and Father's back to their home countries and leave their American born children here. Get real people. Roll back the President's unlawful power grab and fix the Immigration System, its not that difficult. Secure the borders. Get rid of the bad people that are here, and give a reasonable pathway to citizenship.
America has long been a glimmer of hope for the world. Many men and women have sacrificed greatly through the years to maintain our freedom. We have now become the laughing stock of the world. No country respects us anymore. Many dictate to us. Just like The Palestinians and Hamas demanding to be involved in the investigation in the Chapel Hill shooting! Really?
You people control the purse strings. No money can be spent without your approval. Democrats you all know the President is making your party and the country look bad. Curtail his spending for his golf outings and vacations. If he doesn't have the presence of mind to realize how bad it looks for him to be yucking it up on the Golf Course immediately following National or World tragedies cut off the funding! How can any President, Republican or Democrat, Black, White, or Latino, Male or Female, think its ok to go to Vegas immediately after Benghazi? To head to the Golf Course immediately after ISIS beheads an American Citizen?
Democrats, Republicans, and Independents have all been lied to by this President about The Affordable Care Act. Whether Democrats or Liberals will admit it you know in your heart its true. This was no mistake from The President enough proof has come out now where even the most ardent supporter should know he lied over and over. Democrats admit it to yourself and your constituents before you bankrupt this country and ruin the best healthcare system the world has ever known. Republicans you know you can't get the votes to over turn a Presidential Veto to repeal The Affordable Care Act. All you do by holding these silly votes to over turn it is galvanize the left. Instead of wasting that time work with your Democratic counter parts to over turn the worst parts of it. Democrats grow up and meet them halfway.
National Security. Stop messing with it. Put the money back in the Military. We are in a very dangerous time. Very dangerous. This is not the time for these draconian cuts on the finest Military in the world. Straighten out the VA, our Veterans earned it.
Iran, my goodness how can you all let this President allow them to get the Bomb? Just because he listens to Valerie Jarrett do you all have to let him do this? Have any of you bothered to study about The Mahdi or the 12th Imam? I doubt it. The Mullahs in Iran believe it is their duty to bring about The Mahdi. They believe by attacking Israel and "The Great Satan", The U.S.A. with an Atomic Bomb they can bring about The Mahdi. They believe that is their duty to Allah. They look at it as their ticket to Heaven. Knowing that, do you really think those "Religious Fanatics" in Iran won't use the bomb if they get it? Yet this Administration and the far left of The Democratic Party are going to snub The Prime Minister of Israel when he addresses Congress? The one person who has even more to lose than the U.S. President Obama can have David Cameron call members of Congress to lobby them to hold off on sanctions on Iran, but its against protocol for the Republicans to Bibi here to address Congress? Give me a break! Democrats you know that's not right, stand up! Or is The Democratic Party really the Party that Boo's God and Israel?
ISIS. ISIS is not our only enemy. Our enemy is Radical or Devout Islam. Whether its called Hamas, Hezbollah, Boko Haram, Al Nusra, Al Qaeda, Chorosan, Al Shabbab etc..., makes no difference. Evil is evil. All of the Islamic Terror groups want to destroy Israel, The U.S., and any country that doesn't accept Islamic rule. Until we realize who our enemy is, and name it how can we ever defeat it? You Ladies and Gentleman are smart. You didn't get where you are by not being intelligent. Act like it. Family, Faith, and Country come before Party. Not the other way around!
Straighten out the budget! Our Children and Grandchildren deserve it. We owe to our ancestors. It truly isn't rocket science. It doesn't even have to be painful. We wouldn't even have to make that many cuts, in fact we could even spend more on our infrastructure. Its really quite simple taking some of the best ideas from both Parties. Open up Federal Lands for oil production. Relax the EPA rules where more refineries can be built. To make the environmentalists happy use some of the revenue from the increased fees and royalties from the leases to help Service Stations add Natural Gas pumps. Help people who want to convert their vehicles to Natural Gas if they want. Tax credits to Corporations who are sitting on billions of dollars off shore if they bring that money back into The States to hire people and come up with new technologies. Use some of the additional revenue to start rebuilding our Schools, Roads, and Bridges. Obama wants to provide a Junior College education to any citizen who wants it. We all know as deep in debt as our country is we can't afford it. If you all would come together and do the above the new jobs would increase revenue and perhaps we could afford it. I am a social and fiscal Conservative, but if we can get our country back to fiscal sanity I actually believe Junior College, or two years of Technical School for every American would be a great idea for the future of our children and our country.
Benghazi and The I.R.S. Come on people. No matter what party you are affiliated with you have to know something is bad wrong here. The American people are generally forgiving when told the truth. Every couple of weeks or so something new comes out about Benghazi or the I.R.S. Elijah Cummings and a few other Democrats are doing everything in their power to keep the truth from coming out. Why? It will eventually come out. Someone will come forward like Johnathon Gruber did on healthcare. It always happens, and the cover up is always worse than the crime. Seems to me if I was a Democrat I would much prefer the truth come out now instead of during the campaign season of 2016. I have heard several Democrats complain that Barack Obama is destroying the Democratic Party. Maybe he is I don't know. I do know until Jimmy Carter came along I and my parents and grandparents were staunch Democrats. After Jimmy, Republicans. All of us. I never thought I would say this, but I think President Obama will end up doing more harm to the Democratic Party long term than Carter did. So stop trying to cover it up, get the truth out and let the chips fall where they may. Its the right thing to do!
I told myself as I was led to write this open letter to you all I would leave out Scriptures. I would only use the words God put on my heart to wake you up. It came to me as I was writing what better way to get a Public Servants attention than with the following:
2 Chronicles 7:14New International Version (NIV)
14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
Our land needs desperately to be healed! More so now than any time I can remember. Its up to you all, the men and women we elected to start the process. Stop the petty party bickering. Put your Faith, Family and Country ahead of your Party.
God Bless you all, I Pray daily you all wake before we lose this great country God so richly Blessed us with!
