Young Sara's letter here has shown that there is at least some hope for the
future. She should be commended for remaining strong, even in the face of
outright corruption in the highest level of government.Like Sara, I
too have a dream that one day, men will be free from the oppression of having
the government tax away more and more of their salaries to pay for entitlement
programs. Men will be able to keep the product of their labor, rather than
having it taken away and given to those too lazy to provide for themselves.I too have a dream that the government will seek to uphold the rights of
the common man, rather than seeking to silence all who oppose it. A time when
government will promote harmony, not discord.Like Sara, we must
maintain hope. That is the only thing that can give us light in these days of
left-wing dominated darkness.
What a well written letter. Good Job Sara!JCS: you might want to go
back and re-read that letter. Sara was talking about us all looking out for each
other, not about tax policy that seems based more on selfisness. She talks about
lifting the burden off the backs of the downtrodden. I think this is more along
the lines of the veteran on disability and the widow on social security then the
"downtrodden job creator" making only $450,000/year.
And in Utah, it's called Heritage Day instead of Martin Luther King's
Human rights day.Heritage day.While Americas ask for the
birth certificate of the first black President 5 years into his Presidency.A man died to raise awareness of discrimination. The least we can do is
remember his name.Shame on you.
With more people like Sara, there would be fewer people "demanding"
rights, demanding attention to their cause, demanding that others pay their
ticket through life. We would be helping each other, not prosecuting each
other. We would work together as neighbors, not looking to Washington for the
solution. We would buy the products that each other make instead of demanding
union wages so that we can buy more from Wal-Mart.She wrote: "I
have a dream that one day we as people will fight for the strength of others,
and not the strength over others." That sentence deserves pondering.
@JCSI too dream of a day when wealthy investors stop living off the backs
of laborers, its nice we have something in common.
Simply put, "Ask not what your country can do for you but what you can do
for your country." Repubs, bankers, Big Oil, Tea Partiers, and
Wall Street have completely lost sight of this. They view America as something
to be raided and pillaged. When will we finally get back to values?
Caring for one another? Bringing each other up rather than raiding their 401k
while giving CEOs bonuses?
@Mike Richards -- Yes, it is annoying when people go on and on about their
rights, isn't it? (e.g. 2nd Amendment)
I have serious doubts whether Sarah really wrote this letter. I would be
willing to bet she didn't. I would much rather of read her own words.
