This is an open letter to Rep. Brad Miller.
Dear Congressman Miller,
I do not know if you'll ever get this, but here is an open letter from the 11th District to the 13th. …
Libertarian Ron Paul, socialist Bernie Sanders, conservative Jim Demint and progressive Alan Grayson have all championed the original language of HR 1207, to audit the Federal Reserve. Though being new in government has nothing to do with these men supporting the original language of HR 1207, three of the four are senior members of the House and Senate. Many conservative, liberal and libertarian talk show hosts have supported this honest, grassroots effort to audit the fed. Clearly, this effort is not about politics.
Did you feel it was necessary to play politics yourself and follow your fellow North Carolinian, Mel Watt, to Wachovia or Bank of America to collect your share of their lobbying effort to kill the audit? Was it for Mel, Barney and partisan reasons? I know for a fact it certainly wasn't about representing your constituents in the 13th district. So what was it?
After the housing bubble burst, bailouts, inflated gas prices, Bush and Obama's failed stimulus packages, Bush and Obama's gigantic supplementary "defense" spending, endless wars and the fed defending its continuous secret bailouts of banks, is it really that hard to believe you're getting so many calls from people on all sides of the ballpark sounding like hardcore libertarians defending the Constitution with every last breath?
Next time you're reading the politics, take a closer look. Try reading between the lines.
