A Painful Letter from Patriot Pete

PPPS - Following is a letter we received from an unknown reader, who signs as Patriot Pete. In these troubled times, we find his words compelling.

Dear Editor, I pray you will find it in your heart to pass this on to our fellow citizens.

I am greatly troubled, and find it painful to write these words.

But after witnessing events in Washington, DC this week, I can only conclude that our current government and many of its leaders are fundamentally corrupt. Corruption lies at the heart of Congress and in the White House and in the press.

They say that power corrupts. I have watched as our leaders have repeatedly thwarted attempts by honest men and women to rein in  government spending and to steer our country away from an impending financial abyss. No plausible explanation for such irresponsible behavior presents itself, other than a will, at all costs, to cling to power. They have lied.  They have stolen. They have demagogued and they have manipulated.  And, they have ignored the clear will of the people.

And most disheartening of all, they appear willing to sacrifice our great nation, our great future, and the future of generations to come, just to stay in power - even if only for one more election cycle. Each day of delay, they carelessly spend more of our children's future.

Their disrespect of us is appalling. Yet they think we don’t see. It is true that there are many who do not see, and many who choose not to.  And there are many who are complicit, especially in the press. This also is disheartening.

But their time is short. I am confident that, in the end, we will  prevail. I just pray that the damage they have caused can quickly be undone.

They have awakened us. We will not give up and we will not go away.  We will stand firm until their power has passed.

Long live our great country and constitution. Beware, those who would do it harm.

  1. Pete,

    Much of the problem is exactly the fact that men and women wish to reign in government spending, rather than rein it in.
