Sent the letter below to my FL rep Adam Fetterman (D) district 81
Dear Rep. Fetterman,
I am taking a moment to write you about the troubling economic situation, and how these times can cause us to lose sight of the fundamentals our nation was based on. Our Founding Fathers had been oppressed by their government, and knew without a doubt, that by throwing off the shackles of tyranny was the only way for their children, countrymen and themselves to prosper. A very small group of very brave men took it upon themselves to join together and declare their independence from this tax happy monarchy and laid down their signatures and then their very lives for this cause.
It has now become self evident to another group of brave citizens that this course must again be undertaken. While watching in horror, the largest spending bill in history being forced upon a populace by a small band of theives in Washington, not representing their constituents views, and rewarding various groups for their loyalty during elections, it is obvious to all but the most blind that we cannot borrow our way out of debt. The bill put forth is 48% tax cuts and 52% spending with absolutely no mention of spending cuts for the government except to cut our military budget by 10% at a time when we are fighting a war on 2 fronts, and our sons and daughters are in harms way! Instead, government is planning to fund abortion, STD prevention, and honeybee studies, among billions of more in “the PORKULOUS bill” or as Sntr Corker put it, the biggest generational theft bill of all time. Think about that, generational theft. You have children, as do I, and we are stealing their opportunity to have the same life our parents did, because we don’t want to face our debt problem.
Our Founding fathers have said many things about passing debt on to future generations, about entitlement spending, taxing the people, and big government. There is way too much over reaching in all these areas today. Please read Jefferson, Davey Crockett, Franklin, Washington and the Federalist papers. We are succumbing to the very things they warned of. Re read, with fresh eyes, the declaration of independence, and most importantly, the Constitution of the United States. See with the eyes of our Fathers what they were trying to protect us from.
While I know you personally are not involved in federal negotiations on this bill, our Governor is supporting this bill. This will NOT stand with Floridians. We are hurting for sure, my husband has been unemployed for 4 months now. I have not asked for food stamps, mortgage reductions, welfare, or any other entitlement spending on our behalf. I ask you to NOT put my children further into debt on our behalf. It was our irresponsibility looking for easy credit, instant gratification, keeping up with the Joneses, and not planning well for the future. I do not want to burden them with our generations greed.
20 states have put forth bills reaffirming the rights of their states. Why all of a sudden do you think this is happening? It is because so many constituents feel their rights and liberties slipping away, that drastic measures to protect the sovereignty of the state is necessary. I urge you, and your fellow representatives, to put up a similar bill in our state. While being part of the Union is important, it does NOT supersede the right to be a sovereign state. Our rights are being eroded as union members, whether abuses of the 2nd amendment, abortion, ILLEGAL immigration, religious freedom,gay marriage, and taxation without representation. I hope you will consider truly representing us in the state of Florida by putting forth such a message to Washington on behalf of the people in Florida.
Thank you for your time,
great letter! thanks for sending it, especially on behalf of this other Floridian.
Excellent letter. I will be notifying my state reps with similar sentiments this week.
