"America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves."
A short letter to the President...
Sir, your comment, "The police acted stupidly..." (re: arrest of Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates in July 2009) has been haunting for a couple of weeks. Might that example, and more behind closed doors, be the source of Jonathan Gruber's "stupid Americans" not understanding deliberately confusing language to sell and pass the Affordable Care Act?
It's Friday morning, 21 November. I, like many, tuned in to your address last night.
Some perspective from a simpleton - a stupid American.
On Tuesday, 04 November, stupid Americans told you, compellingly, that your vision - from domestic to foreign policy - for America is not American.
Frankly, what happened is stupid Americans handed (you) back your vision along with your ass - your party's donkey, that is.
What we stupid Americans now expect, what we demand, is that you carry out your oath of office - to the letter and to the fullest extent of its spirit.
In last night's address about your executive order on immigration you attempted to make the sale by passionately telling stupid Americans our history and what it is to be American. Sir, you have no credibility to sell anything; especially America to Americans.
For you, a Constitutional lawyer, have repeatedly, over your tenure, said you did not have the authority to act on immigration. And less than three weeks after political defeat you act?
Constitutional scholars say by the letter the president does not have the power to act. And rest assured stupid Americans say you violated the spirit of the letter, the spirit of America.
If, Sir, in denial and defiance of your political defeat you are unwilling to so perform your sworn duties then resignation is the gentlemanly course. Unlikely is understood.
So, impeachment if necessary.
Thus, in deference to President Lincoln, the Congress will have to find their moral courage to best serve America; to preempt self-destruction. Unlikely is understood.
The stupid has yet to be settled.
God help us.
