Governor Palin posted the following via Facebook recently:
Kudos to Sean Hannity for his hard hitting interview with Anthony Weiner. See video of it below.
Really, liberals, to think you supported this fine gent in Congress
all those years with minions in the media propping him up? Hmmmmmm. I
hope Weiner continues to be a spokesman for the liberal cause because
his position pretty much says it all.
Just as interesting juxtaposition to show what average Americans
think of members of Congress like Anthony Weiner and the permanent
political class in D.C., I’m pasting below a letter that was posted
online in various forums. It was apparently sent by a gentlemen in
Washington state to his senators. I don’t know this gentleman and can’t
verify the authenticity of the letter, but its words ring true with the
sound wisdom of We the People.
Here’s the letter:
April 3, 2013
Senator Patty Murray
Senator Maria Cantwell
Washington, DC, 20510
I have tried to live by the rules my entire life. My father was a
Command Sergeant Major, U.S. Army, who died of combat related stresses
shortly after his retirement. It was he who instilled in me those
virtues he felt important – honesty, duty, patriotism and obeying the
laws of God and of our various governments. I have served my country,
paid my taxes, worked hard, volunteered and donated my fair share of
money, time and artifacts.
Today, as I approach my 79th birthday, I am heart-broken when I look
at my country and my government. I shall only point out a very few
things abysmally wrong which you can multiply by a thousand fold. I have
calculated that all the money I have paid in income taxes my entire
life cannot even keep the Senate barbershop open for one year! Only
Heaven and a few tight-lipped actuarial types know what the Senate
dining room costs the taxpayers. So please, enjoy your haircuts and
meals on us.
Last year, the president spent an estimated $1.4 billion on himself
and his family. The vice president spends $ millions on hotels. They
have had 8 vacations so far this year! And our House of Representatives
and Senate have become America’s answer to the Saudi royal family. You
have become the "perfumed princes and princesses" of our country.
In the middle of the night, you voted in the Affordable Health Care
Act, a.k.a. "Obama Care," a bill which no more than a handful of
senators or representatives read more than several paragraphs, crammed
it down our throats, and then promptly exempted yourselves from it,
substituting your own taxpayer-subsidized golden health care insurance.
You live exceedingly well, eat and drink as well as the "one
percenters," consistently vote yourselves perks and pay raises while
making 3.5 times the average U.S. individual income, and give up nothing
while you (as well as the president and veep) ask us to sacrifice due
to sequestration (for which, of course, you plan to blame the
You understand very well the only two rules you need to know – (1)
How to get elected, and (2) How to get re-elected. And you do this with
the aid of an eagerly willing and partisan press, speeches permeated
with a certain economy of truth, and by buying the votes of the greedy,
the ill-informed and under-educated citizens (and non-citizens, too,
many of whom do vote) who are looking for a handout rather than a job.
Your so-called "safety net" has become a hammock for the lazy. And, what
is it now, about 49 or 50 million on food stamps – pretty much all
Democratic voters – and the program is absolutely rife with fraud with
absolutely no congressional oversight?
I would offer that you are not entirely to blame. What changed you is
the seductive environment of power in which you have immersed
yourselves. It is the nature of both houses of Congress which requires
you to subordinate your virtue in order to get anything done until you
have achieved a leadership role. To paraphrase President Reagan, it
appears that the second oldest profession (politics), bears a remarkably
strong resemblance to the oldest.
As the hirsute first Baron John Emerich Edward Dalberg Acton (1834 –
1902), English historian and moralist, so aptly and accurately stated,
"Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
men are almost always bad men." I’m only guessing that this applies to
the female sex as well. Tell me, is there a more corrupt entity in this
country than Congress?
While we middle class people continue to struggle, our government
becomes less and less transparent, more and more bureaucratic, and ever
so much more dictatorial, using Czars and Secretaries to tell us (just
to mention a very few) what kind of light bulbs we must purchase, how
much soda or hamburgers we can eat, what cars we can drive, gasoline to
use and what health care we must buy. Countless thousands of pages of
regulations strangle our businesses costing the consumer more and more
As I face my final year, or so, with cancer, my president and my
government tell me "You’ll just have to take a pill," while you,
Senator, your colleagues, the president, and other exulted government
officials and their families will get the best possible health care on
our tax dollars until you are called home by your Creator, while also
enjoying a retirement beyond my wildest dreams, which of course, you
voted for yourselves and we pay for.
The chances of you reading this letter are practically zero as your
staff will not pass it on, but with a little luck, a form letter
response might be generated by them with an auto signature applied,
hoping we will believe that you, our senator or representative, has
heard us and actually cares. This letter will, however, go online where
many others will have the chance to read one person’s opinion, rightly
or wrongly, about this government, its administration and its senators
I only hope that occasionally you might quietly thank the taxpayer
for all the generous entitlements which you have voted yourselves, for
which, by law, we must pay, unless, of course, it just goes on the $17
trillion national debt for which your children and ours, and your
grandchildren and ours, ad infinitum, must eventually try to pick up the
My final thoughts are that it must take a person who has either lost
his or her soul, or conscience, or both, to seek re-election and
continue to destroy this country I deeply love and put it so far in debt
that we will never pay it off, while your lot improves by the minute,
because of your power. For you, Senator, will never stand up to the
rascals in your House who constantly deceive the American people. And
that, my dear Senator, is how power has corrupted you and the entire
Congress. The only answer to clean up this cesspool is term limits.
This, of course, will kill the goose that lays your golden eggs. And woe
be to him (or her) who would dare to bring it up.
