"I am a republican and I don't want your son to die. In fact, I don't know your son or you so it makes absolutely no difference to me whether he lives or dies. As a result, I wouldn't give the loose change in my pocket to help you, him or anyone I don't know. Nothing personal, but I simply do not care about your plight, and in return, I will never seek assistance from you. Seems like a fair offer, right? Apparently, there exists a substantial number of liberals who think like you and I encourage you to hit them up for your financial needs."
I write other places on the web and receive many e-mails. I have been called every name that your Mom would wash your mouth with soap if you used such language.
I wanted to share part of this real e-mail with you because the sender is young and
represents the true feelings that many Republicans have against those of us on the
I could fill two pages of e-mails I get like this.They come from all ages of people. They
are all men, and white. Their picture comes with the e-mail.
My response to the sender of the e-mail was that I cared about HIS family. I wanted
all good for them,but suddenly my computer took over and said "we live in two worlds,
why don"t we agree to disagree?" I saw no way of changing him.. I did tell him I was
NOT asking for money,simply we need more services for the Mentally ill.
There are millions of Americans who don"t vote and apathy for everything going on
in our world is their common trait. Their world consists of them and only them.
I am struck by the Republican decision to "double down" on their plans for America.
It really is a simple one:attack us. I have a 20 minute movie sent me that compares
us to Stalin,Hitler,and that our side is after their freedom. I see a plan in our future to
go back to the 1960 era, we need to push back on the mean poison that seems to have
taken over the souls of millions of people in America.
We seem to be starting 2014 in the same spot as 2013. We are at war. We need to spread our message that WE are the folks that will make life better for all.
I am old enough to tell you,THIS is NOT part of the normal debate between political
parties. This time it"s from your neighbor who could care less about you.
