You scare me.

Someone shared this on facebook (originally from Snopes), and I found it interesting enough to share here.
I love things like this from well-educated and accredited people, because most Dems feel that you can't possibly have those qualifications and not be "one of them."
Now, of course this letter is obviously written from a more conservative viewpoint (would you expect different from a former corporate executive?), but does that make it invalid?

I'm just so sick of the two extremes. It's like we're a nation made up of two races of sheep. Otherwise the Libertarian party would be bigger.
If you don't agree with that, ask yourself this....which party's candidate are you voting for in 2016? If you can already answer that question, say "Baa baa."
I would venture a guess that Obama was elected by a bigger "bandwagon" than any other president in history.
For a party that claims to be well-educated, it seems there were a countless number of people that voted for him that couldn't give you a well-educated reason why.


Dear President Obama:

You are the thirteenth President under whom I have lived and unlike any of the
others, you truly scare me.

You scare me because after months of exposure, I know nothing about you.

You scare me because I do not know how you paid for your expensive Ivy League
education and your upscale lifestyle and housing with no visible signs of

You scare me because you did not spend the formative years of youth growing up
in America and culturally you are not an American.

You scare me because you have never run a company or met a payroll.

You scare me because you have never had military experience, thus don't
understand it at its core..

You scare me because you lack humility and 'class', always blaming others.

You scare me because for over half your life you have aligned yourself with
radical extremists who hate America and you refuse to publicly denounce these
radicals who wish to see America fail.

You scare me because you are a cheerleader for the 'blame America' crowd and
deliver this message abroad.

You scare me because you want to change America to a European style country
where the government sector dominates instead of the private sector.

You scare me because you want to replace our health care system with a
government controlled one.

You scare me because you prefer 'wind mills' to responsibly capitalizing on our
own vast oil, coal and shale reserves.

You scare me because you want to kill the American capitalist goose that lays
the golden egg which provides the highest standard of living in the world.

You scare me because you have begun to use 'extortion' tactics against certain
banks and corporations.

You scare me because your own political party shrinks from challenging you on
your wild and irresponsible spending proposals.

You scare me because you will not openly listen to or even consider opposing
points of view from intelligent people.

You scare me because you falsely believe that you are both omnipotent and

You scare me because the media gives you a free pass on everything you do.

You scare me because you demonize and want to silence the Limbaughs, Hannitys,
O'Relllys and Becks who offer opposing, conservative points of view.

You scare me because you prefer controlling over governing.

Finally, you scare me because if you serve a second term I will probably not
feel safe in writing a similar letter in 8 years.

I did write the 'you scare me' letter. I sent it to the NY Times but
they never acknowledged or published it. However, it hit the internet and
according to the 'experts' has had over 500,000 hits.
