Interesting letter listing several (wild) observations about state of the federal government and those in power.
1) You do realize that re-election is a pervasive concern on all levels of elected offices starting with local elections. It is not a symptom of the federal level only. You tolerate it locally and on the state level, you tolerate it on the federal also. It behooves me to remind you that only the legislative body controls the money and how much people in office are compensated.
2, 3b, 7) Who is the majority group? If you can unite the various minority groups you have a majority. What is so difficult to understand there? Which majority is getting lip service, mine or yours? Majority is going to decide on how much to oppress a minority.
3a, 4, 5, 6) You have pork while I bring home bacon. It is still coming from a pig no matter how you cut it. You like pig! If you want to have influence become a lobbyist with staff. Invest in a backscratcher.
8, 9) Are education and foreign aid worthy investments by government? How much do you favor isolation and ignorance?
10) You purchased a ticket! You hated the end of the performance. Now you and everyone else wants to be the critic.
