Here is a letter I wrote to the local paper in Olympia, Wa …feel free to use:
Why do conservatives break out in a cold sweat over the current deficit yet never questioned the historic deficits attributed to Reagan-Bush? Republican squires speak about a Pledge to America to cut $100 billion but they won’t cut off the 107.3 billion spent in corrupt Afghanistan? Folks, it is clearly not about the spending, but rather who ends up with the money.
The trickle-downers won’t talk about taxing the incomes of elites. Why is that solution off the table if we are in such dire straits? They never demand sacrifices from the rich, only the poor and middle class.
Say NO to the deficit rhetoric and demand that our tax money goes to people first and profiteers second. Demand that the wealthy pay their share! Don’t let them shock-and-awe you into dismantling programs that protect your retirement, health care, safety, education, environment, and your job.
This new breed of Reverse Robin Hoodlums are taking from the many and giving to the few. War is being waged upon us all. Don’t expect the Obamacrats to defend you. We need to borrow a page from the brave people in Cairo Egypt and Madison, Wisconsin.
