Open letter to Ignorant Conservatives

Hey I.C.,

Ready for a lesson on “Rights”?

We, the People, make this country what it is. We decide who represents us and we decide which rights we give ourselves by the bills that become law.

The United States Constitution is a living, breathing document; it was amended almost immediately with the first 10 amendments.

* The first 10 Amendments are called…come on I.C., you know this!

The Bill of Rights that We, the People, demanded be included in the U.S. Constitution are Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Religion and Freedom to Bear Arms, among many others.*(http://www.archives.gov/exhibits/charters/constitution_amendments_11-27.html.) All of those rights, included in the Bill of Rights, are rights of all Americans…that Americans demanded for themselves.

Later in our country’s history, we made slavery illegal with the 13th, 14th and 15th amendments. The right to personal freedoms no matter race, color or creed! And we still had to pass the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Read that again, if you need to…Civil Rights Act of 1964.

In the early 20th century, the 19th amendment to the United States Constitution gave women in this country the right to vote. The right to vote for both sexes!

* Do you see that the United States Constitution is a living, breathing document?

* We, the People, have the right to Universal Health Care.

* We, the People, vote our representatives into office, to protect our rights under the law.

* The Democrats are working for the benefit of the majority of Americans.

* We do not need a defense budget bigger than the rest of the world’s combined. We can shift that military spending (supporting Death abroad) to fund health care for citizens of the United States (supporting Life at home).

I have a friend who looks like Jesus Christ. Not the long hair and the beard bit. But he looks like him, all right. You gotta look into his eyes to see it. My friend is as self-sacrificing and humble as Jesus Christ. I’m not religious, but I do believe in God. “Why would I deny the divinity of Jesus Christ? I’ve never denied it of anyone else.” My friend passed along that thought. He likes fixing things, just like the Bible figure. My friend works on computers, he’s not a carpenter, but he would definitely save an adulterer (or a blasphemer) from a public stoning. My friend is also not interested in wealth for the sake of having wealth, as was the self-sacrificing and humble Jesus Christ.

Jesus Christ has nothing to do with war. Jesus Christ has nothing to do with football.

However, when it concerns Universal Health Care in the United States, ask yourselves…What Would My Friend Do?

Yeah, he’s in favor of Universal Health Care because it benefits the majority of people in this country.

Wake up from your delusion, I.C. We have rights in the United States of America, because our laws, written by representatives voted into power by We, the People, say so.

The 300 million people in America deserve Universal Health Care. The insurance companies have rigged the system to deny people coverage even when they have paid their insurance. The insurance companies have exploited the health care industry to deny health care to the people of America. We, the People, voted in Barack Obama to give us our rights back.

President Obama and the Democratic-majority Congress are working for the benefit of the majority of Americans!

You will benefit, too, I.C. Stop telling people to leave this country, if they don’t like your ideas. That is wrong of you. We are all Americans by birth. This is our home. We, the People…of which you and I are a part…this is our country.

Sincerely, your fellow American

P.S.

Congress has the Constitutional Right to regulate Health Care as Interstate Commerce.

“To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes.”
