Outstanding letter - please share with everyone you know.
To the Editor:
This letter was forwarded to Barack Obama, John Boehner, Chris Murphy, Dick Blumenthal, Elizabeth Esty, and Harry Reid
I live in Sandy Hook, CT. My family and close friends weren't harmed on December 14. That day impacted 26 families with an indescribable, staggering pain and anguish. For most of Sandy Hook, it merely affected us with an inescapable intensity of sadness and grief.
Gun control has long been a focus of many in this country. Though I'm not knowledgeable of all the nuances of the Second Amendment, based on the Founding Fathers' circumstances, it had far more to do with enabling the citizenry to protect themselves against tyrannical government than against local psychopaths. It is about providing a balanced firepower so when King George's successor came knocking on your door, you could fight back. Government today is no less inclined to abuse its authority than it was then. Based on the absurd and ongoing power grab that is present day Washington, it's as threatening as ever.
That so many of you view the NRA with its resistance to further restrictions on firearms as intransigent lunatics has far more to do with how you conduct yourselves in office than it does with the NRA's actions.
You in public office are fundamentally dishonest people. You lead lives of deception at every turn, structuring your lives as comfortably as you can while governing with an indifference and arrogance that is absolutely maddening. When the country is reeling from financial disaster, you waste a trillion dollars on a health care bill we can't afford and you've never read. You claim it's critical because health care costs are killing this country... no they're not, you are! You are killing this country. You endorse the ongoing slaughter of millions of unborn children and whine when terrorists are water boarded. You can't lecture us right in Newtown High School about not doing enough to keep our children safe, while simultaneously slaughtering the unborn. You fabricate the intense, media laden drama of the fiscal cliff and lack the courage to do anything about truly reforming the obscene gluttony of government. You know you'll be out of office before the bill comes due you don't care and have no integrity nor honor.
You lie whenever and wherever you need to to move forth your agenda. Were you able, you would purge the US of guns every last gun in the country, if you could. So please forgive Wayne LaPierre and those of us who don't trust you as far as we can spit. You're a dishonest lot, motivated by a distorted worldview. If mass murder prevention were truly your goal, you would welcome armed security wherever needed. It is outrageous that we protect our money with far more firepower than we protect our children.
I have never owned a gun, nor wanted to as intensely as right now. You'll stop restricting guns when only you have them.

TAXERS for ALL but THEMSELVES:
"WE do not care, because
WE and our families are now, and forever will be,
free of ObamaCARE, DeathPANELS, gun control,
Global Redistribution TAXES, and other laws which we impose
daily to rule over you and your worthless children."
I agree with you Brenda 100%,good for you!
“You in public office are fundamentally dishonest people.”
Truer word were never spoken.
Which calls to mind this e-mail I recently received:
This applies to all political parties & their representatives...
You Live In A Country Run By Idiots that we elected !!!
You know you live in a Country run by idiots if...
You can get arrested for expired tags on your car but not for being in the
Just to take a somewhat different tact: There were always despots in waiting, fundamentally dishonest, there are now, and there always will be. The difference between now and 232 years ago is that today we have millions upon millions of voters, useful idiots if you will, willing to put these despots in office. Useful idiots that are “low-information” as Rush puts it, “drones” as Levin puts it, that have no concept what individual freedom is, what individual liberty is, what inalienable means, and what the Constitution is really (in the 5000-year-leap sense, in the federalist paper sense) is.
Bravo! We are indeed a nation run by idiots, the biggest idiot being Obama. And it will only get worse.
We need to hold these self-serving bastards to the Constitution and if necessary, force them to leave us alone... in short, tell them: “You will obey the rules and mind your own damned business!”
That difference was created by squishy-brained leftist "educators" indoctrinating America's children in government schools. We will have no hope of repairing our heritage until that system is replaced with a better one. Drones are not fit for self-government and having a majority composed of them will inevitably result in a dictatorship.
Mr. Duffy sure speaks for a LOT of people.
He sure does, me included.
Unfortunately not enough of them voted last election.
If we cannot muster the strength to get these people out of office AND positions of power [bureaucrats and commissars], then we are left to uselessly rant and rage.
The tipping point, I fear, has come and gone.
Fundamentally Dishonest and Greedy with ego problems.
Excellant letter, I sent it out on my e-mail list and immediatly started receiving positive responses.
I was in either elementary or junior high school in the mid to late 50s when my Mother gave me a copy of “Animal Farm” and suggested I make a book report on it. Oh yeah, 80 pages. I later read 1984 in junior high, the message of both books have remained with me and I recently bought a hardback 2003 edition on e-bay that was in like new condition that contained both “Animal Farm” and “1984”. My wife is now reading them.
