I am again going to present a message received from my good friend Larry C. because it is a good one, and because it speaks of things that weigh heavily on my mind and should in yours also. What troubles me even more than the things Mr. Pritchett mentions? The fact that 3 years later President Obama is just as scary and for even more reasons.
If this letter doesn’t strike a chord, don’t vote!
I have seen a similar letter circulating through the Internet emails, but wrongly attributed to other authors. The letter below was sent to the NY Times but they never acknowledged it. Big surprise. Since it hit the Internet, however, it has gone viral with over 500,000 hits. Truth or Fiction says it has contacted the author, Lou Pritchett, who acknowledged that he did write it and send it to the NY Times as noted. (I also verified this with Snopes that checks out hoaxes and rumors: Chris)
Lou Pritchett is one of corporate America’s true living legends – an acclaimed author, dynamic teacher and one of the world’s highest rated speakers. Successful corporate executives everywhere recognize him as the foremost leader in change management. Lou changed the way America does business by creating an audacious concept that came to be known as “partnering.” Pritchett rose from soap salesman to Vice-President, Sales and Customer Development for Procter and Gamble and over the course of 36 years; made corporate history.
AN OPEN LETTER TO PRESIDENT OBAMA
Dear President Obama:
You are the thirteenth President under whom I have lived and unlike any of the others, you truly scare me.
You scare me because after months of exposure, I know nothing about you. You scare me because I do not know how you paid for your expensive Ivy League education and your upscale lifestyle and housing with no visible signs of support. You scare me because you did not spend the formative years of youth growing up in America and culturally you are not an American. You scare me because you have never run a company or met a payroll. You scare me because you have never had military experience, thus don’t understand it at its core.
You scare me because you lack humility and ‘class’, always blaming others. You scare me because for over half your life you have aligned yourself with radical extremists who hate America and you refuse to publicly denounce these radicals who wish to see America fail. You scare me because you are a cheerleader for the ‘blame America ‘ crowd and deliver this message abroad. You scare me because you want to change America to a European style country where the government sector dominates instead of the private sector. You scare me because you want to replace our health care system with a government controlled one.
You scare me because you prefer ‘wind mills’ to responsibly capitalizing on our own vast oil, coal and shale reserves. You scare me because you want to kill the American capitalist goose that lays the golden egg which provides the highest standard of living in the world. You scare me because you have begun to use ‘extortion’ tactics against certain banks and corporations. You scare me because your own political party shrinks from challenging you on your wild and irresponsible spending proposals. You scare me because you will not openly listen to or even consider opposing points of view from intelligent people. You scare me because you falsely believe that you are both omnipotent and omniscient. You scare me because the media gives you a free pass on everything you do.
You scare me because you demonize and want to silence the Limbaugh’s, Hannity’s, O’Reilly’s, and Beck’s who offer opposing, conservative points of view. You scare me because you prefer controlling over governing. Finally, you scare me because if you serve a second term I will probably not feel safe in writing a similar letter in 8 years.
Thanks to Ed O. for passing this on. The 2012 election will start us back to the right or it could very well be the end of our country as we knew it. If the conservative right, along with any of the rest of the voting population with half a brain, doesn’t show up in mass to get Obama out of office, the USA will no longer be anything like it once was!!!
May GOD continue to bless America. Please get out and vote.
Make it a Great Day!
