GLENN BECK: I got a letter from a woman in Arizona....
Glenn Beck ^ | 6/17/09 | unknown

Posted on 06/17/2009 2:54:33 PM PDT by American Dream 246

FANTASTIC LETTER. Please forward to everybody you know. PLEASE!

GLENN BECK: I got a letter from a woman in Arizona. She writes an open letter to our nation's leadership:

* I'm a home grown American citizen, 53, registered Democrat all my life.

Before the last presidential election I registered as a Republican because I no longer felt the Democratic Party represents my views or works to pursue issues important to me. Now I no longer feel the Republican Party represents my views or works to pursue issues important to me.....

.....We are coming. Are we coming for you? Who do you represent? What do you represent? Listen. Because we are coming.

We the people are coming. *

We are coming. Are we coming for you? Who do you represent? What do you represent? Listen. Because we are coming.

We the people are coming. *

God Bless America and this grandmother!!!

It certainly was fantastic. Our reps should be hanging their heads in shame.

When I signed there were roughly 14K sigs, and not a minute later it was over 16K, so I know the server is getting hammered.

"I cannot get to petition right now."

There's nothing there about any petition.

Excellent.

Our so called leaders need to hear it, only louder and every single day.

A battle cry of “We are coming, we are coming for you” shouted by millions of us should get their attention.... but then we really need to go.... from everywhere in America and by the millions.

Lock this grandmother up. She is a home grown terrorist we been hearing all about. We cannot and will not listen to any person who makes sense.

Trust the government, they love you and only want to protect you from crazy people like this woman.

Now go back to work, 0 needs our cash.

The brown shirts are on the way to this crazy ladies house.

I agree, can’t they at least merge the 2 threads? The other has the letter and the link to the petition.

I don't get it. They say that their servers are overloaded, but will still allow you to sign a petition about standing with obama against republican attacks....

This letter reads like the perfect platform for a conservative landslide in ‘10.

If only the nitwits in charge of the party would take the damn ball and run with it.

They can do what they want I copied the one with the letter to save and send to friends as needed.

Again common sence is ignored or not wanted!

This lady said everything I been feeling and it needed to be displayed not refer too!

...Seems that MSNBC, other than attacks against the usual suspects, are starting to ask questions of Obama, for lying about everything he promised...

Still: "This petition, An Open Letter to our Nation's Leadership, is so popular that it is overwhelming our servers, and we have had to temporarily close it. We hope to re-open it soon. Please check back."

I just got that "survey" the GOP keeps sending people...like they REALLY want your ideas. It's created to purposefully ask you questions that will OF COURSE have you saying, "I don't like THAT!" and then, they say, we can help, but we need your donations to make a difference....blah, blah, blah...

THIS TIME, I copied "the letter" and put it in the envelope with the survey...saying, "Read this letter and you'll know how we collectively feel!" Then, I paid the postage on the envelope and sent it.

Oh...I feel good *smiles*

BTTT

BTW, is this the original formatting? On Beck’s site it’s in paragraph form. I want to pass it on in the form it was written.

I finally got to read this after seeing her on Beck tonight. Fanstastic. Really fantastic.
I am posting this on my Facebook page, everyone else should post this everywhere they can. Email it to your friends and family.

Go to Beck's site and copy it. I'm guessing that his format is done to save space. The original letter he showed on T.V. was a hand written letter.

My format is done to ease reading, and to emphasize it's impact.

I hope this answers your question
