The letter below is what I sent to the Obamas from my husband and me. I guess he did what I asked concerning taxes on the rich --starting at $400,000 (or was it $450,000?) instead of $250,000 which would have meant increasing taxes on  millions of  job-creating, small-business-people making less the uber rich--and yet well-off - like the bourgeoise (the middle class and business class) of Russia when Communists took over and pitted the proletariat (blue collar worker) against the bourgeoise, taking over their businesses, houses and lands for the state.)

November 9, 2012
President & First Lady of the United States
1600 Pennsylvania Ave. NW
Washington, D.C. 20500

Dear Mr. President and Mrs. Obama:

We --and the Romney-supporters (half the country) really do want to like you with your nice smile, great charisma and lovely family. We want to be glad that you were re-elected. You can help us do that. We don’t want to think you have communistic sympathies or a colonialist view of the U.S. nor plans to disarm our country with promises to Putin.

You did say in your speech a few moments ago that the top 2 per cent of the nation make $250,000 or more and should be taxed more. Those include mostly the lower end of that income, the small business owners and various professionals --who live like “middle-class” --rather than the super-rich of the top 1/2 per cent like yourself and the ultimate uber rich like Romney and other million dollar -plus a year people. Those making high 5 figures, and 6 figures up to $250,000 are Marx's bourgeois --the middle class educated conservatives whom Communists destroyed. According to 2009 and Tax Payers Union, it was $344,000 that the top 1 per cent make. There aren’t very many uber-rich who make millions like Romney, Hollywood celebs, uni coaches and presidents and CEO's of big corporations --not enough of them to slow the deficit if you keep adding more people to the poverty rolls, approving pork and new billion dollar spending packages and sending tons of money to other nations' corrupt governments.

Please surprise the half of the country that supported Romney. We are scared to death of your agenda --what we perceive it to be--and the radical influences in your past. Please prove us wrong. Show that you can cut programs for which we should not borrow from China. We know --that means lost public sector jobs --but if China is paying them, they have to go. If they are valuable employees in a department we don’t really need, they will find work elsewhere in a more prosperous private sector --i.e. more prosperous if you don't tax them down.

We suggest you not raise taxes EXCEPT SLIGHTLY on the uber rich -- the top 1/2 per cent. You still want them to be inclined to invest, hire, spend and give. Learn from business people who know how to succeed at business and know how taxes impact growth. The Government needs way too much revenue because of the horrible level of spending. Let Big Bird support Public Broadcasting. He can do it. They can sell muppets. As for Public Radio, put Garrison Keillor’s Prairie Home Companion on every day and we’ll send them a donation. PBS is not neutral enough politically that they should deserve tax-payer support. They speak in their measured, neutral, unemotional tones --leaning WAY to the left --as far left as Fox News speaks excitedly with no pretense of neutrality, to the right. But Fox raises their own money. So can NPR. (Note: “fair and balanced” doesn’t mean neutral. Gov’t stations should be neutral.)

Planned Parenthood shouldn't get public funding if pro-life Pregnancy Centers and clinics don't. The poor women will still get healthcare using their medicaid cards and the public health clinics.

You must move toward the center if you would meet the Republicans half way and end the supposed gridlock. Your determination should be NO NEW SPENDING --and the elimination of all non-essential spending and departments that don’t directly impact the needy or the elderly or the ill. Send the education of the nation back to the locals. Shut down the federal department of education. Send the school breakfast program to the churches. Promote volunteer tutoring by the elderly in every public school. Note that Christian and parochial and home schools educate best on way less money.

And for goodness sakes, PLEASE deliver to the nation’s youth Santorum’s message from your bully pulpit. The 3things to do to avoid poverty: “Finish high school; get a job; get married before having children--( and stay married if possible. Stay faithful. ) If you do even the first 3 things on this list, 98% of you will be above poverty line; 77% will be above average in income.”

There really is a correlation between family stability and morality and the strength of communities and nations. You are for gay marriage, but ought not be, because children deserve a mother and father when possible. Gay marriage deprives them of one or the other by its very nature. Nor should gays share quarters with straights (or with each other) in military. It’s like putting men and women together in showers and barracks--completely distracting to the mission of military preparedness. Homosexuality does spread --from the experienced to the inexperienced, and like drugs, becomes addictive. No evidence yet that we are born homosexual. U. of Texas published a 2012 study that said the adult children of homosexual parent are among the most miserable and dysfunctional of all young adults.

Please be better than conservatives expect. Seriously try to understand the logic and reason behind conservatism and their criticism of your party and policies. Communism hasn’t been appreciated anywhere where it is tried. Socialism leads to the fiscal cliff --sliding like Greece--and you’ve got us on the edge. Surprise us --and do not push us over. Don’t tax us highly now or you will kill business and jobs. People are thinking of moving out of country for fear you will rob them of their pensions --either through confiscation of high taxes or bad economy, inflation, devaluing of the dollar, etc.

We are afraid of having our lives shortened by your Canada-style health care program. Let someone tweak that program! We don't want the long waits and rationing of Canadian healthcare! Canadians come HERE for procedures they can't get in a timely manner in Canada. Start with TORT REFORM. Doctors and insurance companies settle out of court for 100,000 rather than go to trial and risk jury’s compassion for miserable patients suing for a million dollars. Doctors rightly fear that the jury will consider only the patient’s misery, thinking it will cost no one if the insurance company pays the patient without proving malpractice. In fact, the costs of such suits and mal-practice insurance are a big cost in healthcare.

As for national security and disarming Americans, we hope you are just the fun-loving, congenial and kindly public servant, Barack Obama from Hawaii --and not a Stalin or Hitler in the making who was mentored by Communists and other radicals, as some suspect.

Seek good successful businessmen’s advice and not just socialists’ advice. They have never made any nation solvent. Put Romney on your cabinet! Because he does like to solve financial problems. Wow! That would be a uniting act. Listen to Ryan, too. We are in a mess. Let them try to help!

We shall pray for you daily--that you really ARE a Christian as you told Rick Warren --or will become one and that you will seek God’s guidance on all matters before you --not Marx’s advice, nor Alinsky’s, nor Ayers, nor Davis’s. Only Jesus rose from the grave. He is the only one worthy to save us for Eternity. Atheists can’t give you wise guidance like the Holy Spirit and the Word of God can. Your stands on abortion and homosexuality --and lukewarm relationship with Israel, are all 3 in contradiction to His Word and His Spirit and need to be reconsidered if the nation would be blessed. Separation of church and state doesn't mean God is not real --and has no say in the country's values which shape national culture and character.

Forgive us for any misjudgment of your character and intentions, and prove all the naysayers wrong.

Sincerely --wanting to admire you--
wanting your term to be successful
in the eyes of God and informed Americans,

Dr. & Mrs._______________

Well, there's your perception of his agenda, tainted no doubt by Hannity, Beck, Limbaugh and the rest of the right-wing radio terrorists. They tell you people what to believe because you refuse to think for yourselves (as evidenced by your childish, ridiculous rant.)

And then there's reality. I won't try to argue points with you; you're too far gone for reason. It will never stop amazing me that so many people think the secrets of life can be found in a book written by primitive man in the Bronze Age. Keep on hatin' (I read some of your stuff on gays and lesbians - you are one sick human being) while trying to pass it off as God's pure love. He must be awfully proud of you.

Say, Ken, I marvel that you found my blog. Do I know you? Actually, the talking heads are not my sources. I read a lot and have always done so since I was a kid. I also know how the GOP and democrat platforms differed. I know what I believe about gov't, values, liberty, etc. I do fear the influences that shaped Barack Obama (Alinsky, Davis, Wright, Dorhn and Ayers of the Weather Underground, et al) --and thus, I don't trust him to be as harmless as you think he is. My hope and impression would be that he is enjoying his money, his golf, and is content to finish his term and go into the sunset with his annual salary for life of $400,000 plus speaking and book fees. I hope he doesn't have the ambition to really redistribute wealth via a national uprising with anarchy and chaos caused by his class warfare.

You wouldn't be Al, would you--seems the Bronze Age book could be from you.
