LETTER TO THE EDITOR

An Answer for 'Joe Average'

To the Editor:

I am glad we live in a free country, especially the right of free speech and the fact of one man one vote. And because we live in a free country, we have such great forums such as this to digress with people we think are mentally inferior. Even if that someone is just an average Joe.

I vote for the person, whether Democrat or Republican. I feel that if that person has the best interest of our country, they deserve my vote. Mr. Ramelis' contributions to the MoveOn.Org [Letters, November 23, 2006] to me is tantamount to treason in this country.

MoveOn.Org is primarily funded by extremist billionaire George Soros, who is pouring tens of millions into propaganda organizations like MoveOn.org. George Soros, an avowed atheist, wants an "open society" where legalized drugs and few limits on private behavior would be policy. He also loves "income redistribution" through taxation, though his companies are off shore and do not pay taxes.

One thing he doesn't love is how America is fighting terror. Speaking at Columbia University recently, Soros said that the U.S. war on terror had claimed more innocent lives than the September 11 attacks. He also put forth that, although America claims to be a liberating country, we're really the oppressors.

Organizations like MoveOn believe America is evil and wrong and that people who want to destroy us are in the right. One such person who has made money from hurting America and other countries is George Soros.

Soros became immediately famous when he sold short more than $10 billion worth of pounds, profiting from the Bank of England's downfall on Black Wednesday. Soros earned an estimated US$ 1.1 billion in the process. He was dubbed "the man who broke the Bank of England." Soros tried the same thing in France and was convicted of insider trading. His insider trading conviction was upheld by the highest court in France on June 14, 2006. Guess he doesn't visit France much anymore.

The Crazy Left end of the Democratic party of such deviants as Nancy "Abortion" Pelosi, Carl "I betrayed Michigan" Levin, John "Islamic

Jihad" Conyers, crazy Howard Dean and Gun Grabbing Charles Schumer suck up to people like Soros because he funds their campaigns through his many shadow organizations. Move On is only one of them.

I wonder if Average Joe is a leftist like our blond governor who thinks companies who actually create jobs should be penalized by tax increases and government restrictions. Its no wonder Michigan has sunk down the tubes, job-wise. As a businessman for over 30 years, I only know too well the penalties we pay to live in such a beautiful state. I like peace. Heck, I love peace, but I wonder, will America drop a nuclear bomb on Iran and Korea before or after those rouge states sell a nuclear bomb to a terrorist group?
