To the Congress of the United States

As a citizen of this great country, I am writing to express to those who serve as Representatives and Senators in the 111th Congress of the United States, my concerns with supplemental appropriations bill H.R.1, which has passed the House of Representatives. In so writing, I do not represent any political party, particular group, or committee. In both the realm of political thought and in demographic circumstances, I believe I fall within the median of the populace.

It is incumbent that I, if not necessarily on behalf of Americans who are similarly situated, at least as one voice from this body of the citizenry, to call upon you to use reason rather than panic, integrity as opposed to gamesmanship, and wisdom over ideology to guide your next actions on this measure. Ultimately, the issue before you is how to best serve the people of this country during this severe economic downturn. It is not how best to serve special interests or to support political strategies. I and several hundred million Americans require that you make the best choices in this matter, not the most expedient or the most beneficial to you or the parties you represent....

The remainder of this letter is available at http://www.petitiononline.com/opltrcon/petition.html. Please visit to review the letter and add your support and comments if you are so inclined. I just started my account here but have been a long time lurker and Freeper aficionado.

I would like to thank you for taking the time to read and sign in support of my Open Letter to the 111th Congress.

If you think there is someone in your circle of associates who might like to also support the letter, please direct them to the Petition Online link. I would like this message to get to as many people as possible and hopefully, to those in Congress who need to hear what the American people think of the current spending proposals under discussion.

Also, please let me know if you have any suggestions for getting more people to read and support the letter. This is my first thread at Free Republic and I’m not sure I have maximized its utility.

Thanks again.
