Dear Mr. President, Stand Strong! Don't Give In! The American People, including Latinos, Support You!

Dear Mr. President,

It is clear. The Republicans do NOT listen to the American people. We voted for you. We voted for your message of standing UP for the Middle Class and to stop giving Tax Cuts to the Rich 1%. We voted for your message of Equality for ALL People in our Country, of ALL Ethnicities, Colors, Religion and Sexual Orientation. We voted for your message of improving Life for the Middle Class, Education (as the Great Equalizer) for All, More Jobs for all HERE in the United States – NOT Outsourced Offshore.
We stand with you, Mr. President, in STOPPING these Mass Murders – and once and for all improving safety for ALL of Us – especially our children in Schools & Movie Theaters – by at LEAST closely monitoring the sales of assault weapons, ammunition and ensuring these sales are closely regulated so that anyone purchasing these types of weapons completes a background check and completes proper forms for purchase.

While the vast majority of the American People support your Message, the far right wing of the Republican Party, supported by many of the rich 1 percent, Fox News (Hannity, O’Reilly), right wing radio (Limbaugh, Bennett, Beck etc) oppose your message. We’ve heard the irresponsible rhetoric from the right wing head of the NRA. Worse yet, the Republican Tea Party backed Congressmen have said they are against any form of compromise. They voted down Republican Majority Leader Boehner’s Plan B proposal. These nut jobs want to go off the Fiscal Cliff. They have proven they DO NOT CARE about America.

Mr. President, YOU CANNOT continue to give in to these Extremists. You CANNOT! Please. DO NOT BACK DOWN, even if it means going off of the Fiscal Cliff. We all know IF you give in, in 2 months and every 2 months down the road, we will be facing another threat of “suicide of America as we know it by Tea Party” with each negotiattion towards ANY economic decision (eg: Debt Ceiling debate).

Mr. President. Stand Strong. We are depending on you.

We ALL know the far right Republican Agenda.

There are so many things we MUST DO this year and throughout your next term. We cannot allow these extremist Republicans to control your agenda. They want to control your agenda this year so you CANNOT continue with:

1. Your rollout of Universal Healthcare
2. Passing Gun Safety Measures (be Tough here and DON’T allow them to control your agenda)
3. Dream Act: Pass the Actual Dream Act
4. Pass Comprehensive Immigration Reform

Mr. President. Please understand. WE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE are solidly behind you. However, we do not want you to hesitate. These scoundrels are looking for ANY sign of Weakness and promise to be like laughing hyenas in small packs, attacking you at every opportunity – anything to deter your righteous agenda.

Mr. President. We Latino People PROMISE to stand with you. We are already hearing the howling of the jackals as they proclaim this is the Highest Year of Latino Deportations. These Scoundrels Must Believe WE LATINOS are Stupid. We too look at the statistics. The vast majority of the Deportations are occurring in states that have passed those heinous Racial Profiling Laws you oppose. The highest rate of deportations in the ENTIRE COUNTRY are in Maricopa County, Arizona – in Sheriff Arpaio’s own County. The highest rates of Deportations are in states that have passed laws SIMILAR TO SB1070. The highest rate of abuses, murders and assaults against Border Crossers are in Arizona – where OFTEN, Border Patrol and LOCAL VOLUNTEERS are from the Far Right Extremist Latino Haters. Mr. President – WE KNOW THIS! And we know that when Comprehensive Immigration Reform finally passes, that these reprehensible officials, like Arpaio, Brewer and others will finally move back into their rabbit holes.

Mr. President, please stand strong! . Please stand True to your righteous agenda. WE THE PEOPLE are depending on you.

Excellent Letter Dee !

Thanks for your very good editorials and opinions of year 2012 !

The GOP is becoming a victim of its own zealotry, fanaticism, intransigence, stubbornness, bigotry, dogmatism, rigidity, doctrinarism, lack of flexibility and compromise and even lack of intelligence !.

The budget deal passed by the U.S. Senate and House will raise taxes on 77.1 percent of U.S. households, mostly because of the expiration of a payroll tax cut, according to preliminary estimates from the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center in Washington.

More than 80 percent of households with incomes between $50,000 and $200,000 would pay higher taxes. Among the households facing higher taxes, the average increase would be $1,635, the policy center said. A 2 percent payroll tax cut, enacted during the economic slowdown, has been allowed to expire.

Are you happy now and still singing Obama's praises? Looks like neither he nor the Democrats listened to you. My husband will be paying over $100 a month extra in taxes now. At least one week's groceries.
