Letter to the NRA

November 20, 2012

Mr. Wayne LaPierre
Executive Vice President
National Rifle Association of America
11250 Waples Mill Road
Fairfax, VA 22030

Dear Mr. LaPierre:

With President Obama’s re-election, I am writing to you as a concerned NRA member and fellow American who gravely fear for the loss of our freedoms. Like so many of my fellow Americans, I feel a sense of impending doom that in his second term, the President and his progressive operatives will do all they can to forcibly impose the ceding of our national sovereignty and the further destruction of our Constitution.

By signing onto the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty and issuing executive orders that bypass Congress, the President is signaling a clear anti-gun and anti-freedom agenda in his next four years. While I appreciate the NRA’s enormous efforts in its active opposition to this White House such as Fast & Furious, I strongly believe all freedom loving gun owners of America can and must do even more.

Having actively supported a number of political campaigns since 2008 only to be defeated time and again by Democratic machine politics, I’ve learned that the left is extremely good at mobilizing a united coalition. Obama’s second term will require all hands, even beyond the NRA membership. We need a united coalition of gun owners, sportsmen, pro-gun organizations, the firearms industry, the Tea party, other liberty groups and just freedom loving ordinary Americans across the country for this fight.

To me the NRA has always been more than a pro-gun advocacy organization. We are a defender of American liberty. With a coordinated and united coalition we shall have overwhelming political power and the resources necessary to defeat the gun-grabber’s assault on our freedoms once and for all. I therefore respectfully request that the NRA take the lead to build such a united coalition in anticipation of what will surely be the fight of our lives.

If Louis Farrakhan can put one million of his followers on the Washington Mall, surely the gun owners of America can do ten times that. Together en masse we can send an unequivocal message to the Washington ruling elites that as Americans we will not tolerate the hijacking of our liberty, the ceding of American sovereignty and the destruction of our Constitution by anyone in public service, and that includes the President of the United States of America.

Very truly yours,

Dexter Liu

The Morning After

I don’t mind sharing with you that I am deeply saddened and disappointed with my fellow Americans. In fact, I am angry. The good news is, as conservatives and patriots we don’t turn over cars and set them on fire or break store windows to loot or pillage just because we lost an election. But nevertheless, I am mad as hell at the idiots who call themselves Americans who voted to return the Liar-in-chief to our White House.

We have a president who could not offer a brighter vision for the future of America based on his accomplishment, because he has none. To the contrary, he has unequivocally made things much worse than when his predecessor left office. It’s no wonder then that he could only resort to a campaign of division, slander, lies and character assassination. So last night, class warfare won. Racial hatred won. Corruption and deceit won. Liberal-Media bias won. Immorality won. Lawlessness won. And so the Chicago way prevailed.

If there is any hope left at all, it is in the narrowness of the victory by the America-hater-in-chief. But rest assured, the next 4 years will be pure hell. Why do I know this? Because I have his record as evidence. We will see the doubling down of the current divisiveness in government. Lack of leadership will continue. Our porous southern borders will continue to let in more people who do not belong in America, or should I say, undocumented Democrats. These once United States will be at war with Washington D.C. to fight for their Constitutional sovereignty. This while Obama and his “blame America first” gang will cede our national sovereignty to the UN with the blessing of the new Senate.

Soon we’ll be a more compliant global citizen marching in unity under UN laws ratified by the Marxists-dictator-membership. Under Obama’s watch, these laws and treaties will supersede the US Constitution in America and this new Senate will grease the skids. Since the Senate and the White House don’t control the purse strings, partisan bickering will reach levels never before imagined. Our Constitution will be in real jeopardy not only from the routine assaults by this Administration via executive fiat or by their simply ignoring the rule of law as Obama has done in the last 4 years, but because he will appoint 3 additional liberal-progressive judges to the Supreme Court.

That, my friends, will be the last nail in the coffin for a free America because the Constitutional republic will become but a distant memory. But hey, if you love tyranny, you will love this new Obama-normal. Our freedoms as citizens will be curtailed even further by even bigger central government so better go spend what few Dollars you’ve got left because Uncle Obama is coming for it to redistribute to those who don’t have any use for work. But the best news is we now have a Senate loaded with leftist radicals who believe “you don’t own that” so brace yourself because they will surely come after what they believe belongs to the “collective.” What property rights? Do memories of Chairman Mao come to mind anyone?

Oh, and the “green” energy “investments” will continue unabated despite the train wreck of the last 4 years. Solyndra was a mere warm up act. Obama will do this not because he believes in “saving the planet” but because he needs more of your money to pay off his supporters and campaign bundlers. What, did you say you’re tapped out? That’s OK, he’ll just borrow more! My son and his generation will pay it back, they won’t mind. Besides Obama won’t put all of it on the credit card of the future generations, he has Ben Bernanke. The Federal Reserve will just print more!

And BTW, once Obama has cut our military down to the bone, now that he’s in his second term, he will soon get on the red-phone with Putin to tell him: “Vladimir, mission accomplished!” So to all you liberal-useful idiots out there, job well done. You have just accomplished what generations of America’s enemies could not by being complicit in the demise of our republic. Now bend over and kiss your sorry-collective-free-American asses good bye.

Time To Vote!

It’s finally that time! Next Tuesday November the 6th, God willing, we will choose a new president to lead America back onto the right path and put the nightmare of the last four years in the rear view mirror.

Believe it or not, with only 5 days to go, there are still undecided voters out there. Just the other day I struck up a conversation with Holly who cuts my hair and discovered that she was an undecided voter. To her credit she was honest and candid about her views and admitted she is like so many busy Americans who pay little to no attention to politics. But next Tuesday she has to vote and she expressed panic. We spoke briefly about various issues and I revealed my pro-Romney position and still she wanted to learn more. So I took her email address and wrote her an overview of what I believe are the two choices we face which cannot be more stark in their contrast. Here’s what I sent:

Holly,
It was good to chat today about voting next Tuesday. I’m not just saying it but for someone who claims to not know anything, you have very good instincts. My best advise is to follow those instincts. There is a great deal wrong with our country today and the problems are entirely bi-partisan! Both parties share the blame for the mess we’re in. But instead of putting America back onto a path to recovery, the last four years have seen one broken promise after another from this administration. This election will be critical to get America on the right track again. I am voting the person not the party!

There is no doubt those in the news media do not tell us the whole truth and the main stream media like ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN, etc. all favor Obama because they’re all in the tank for him. It would take too long to try and explain why that is but the evidence is overwhelming that it is so. Take for example the most recent scandal out of this White House. The killing of 4 Americans in Benghazi including our Ambassador to Libya. This is clearly a cover up because after 6 weeks of lies from the White House and the State Department, we now know they knew our people were under attack by terrorists from the beginning. What’s more, they saw the attack happen in real time and watched our people die! What makes this even more scandalous is the fact the President either personally told our military to “stand down” or had someone order our military to not lift a finger to help even when we had people and assets in the vicinity ready to go. Then they made up this story about an anti-Muslim video some guy in California posted on You Tube. Now that much of the truth is out in the open the President will not even talk about it. The liberal media won’t even ask him why he and his administration lied to the American people with this made up story and why as Commander-In-Chief, he did not send in help. Now, imagine if this incident had happened under George Bush. Do you think for one minute that the liberal media would give President Bush a pass? But it’s their man in the White House and their silence is deafening. So this case should prove to you unequivocally that the liberal media is completely biased and therefore unreliable. But then, I think you’re instincts already told you that.

I think the presidential race can be boiled down to two clearly distinctive paths for America: pro- big centralized government which controls and regulates the private sector with a heavy hand and picks the winners and losers vs. pro-free market small government which allows the private sector to prosper and rebuild our economy.

Under Obama you can expect even bigger government, more governmental controls and regulations that will continue to run our lives. Obamacare is a perfect example of big government intrusion. It is a holy grail for those who want a “cradle-to-grave” entitlement society where theoretically the government takes all your worries away and takes care of everything. I say theoretically because that is a “socialistic” ideology where no one really owns anything because you willingly give it to government to redistribute to everyone else presumably “fairly.” But of course that is a fantasy and has historically never worked. So imagine there is no incentive to excel or work hard at anything since you have no personal stake in success. That’s why socialism always fails. Take a look at Europe and we are seeing the unraveling of those policies in real time. The riots in Greece and Spain are a direct consequence of these policy failures. The fact is those utopian promises can never be kept because you simply run out of other people’s money when a society is not motivated to produce. Obama is taking us down that road to Greece and if re-elected, you can count on being there. If you want evidence, all you need to do is look around and know that we are not in a recovery as his campaign has tried to tell us. Obama’s policies are anti-growth that’s why the economy is in a shambles. People are hurting and businesses are all barely hanging on. It’s little wonder no one is hiring! When government artificially forces America to run on unnecessarily expensive energy because of bad monetary policy (what we discussed regarding the Federal Reserve’s policy of quantitative easing or printing more and more money and literally diluting the value of your Dollar) and anti-business regulatory EPA policies that penalize businesses and forcing them to pay through the nose with unreasonable and extremist environmental regulations. Obama’s policies assumes the private sector is evil and therefore must be policed and regulated by government. This is what Obamacare is doing to businesses. It imposes draconian compliance costs and long-term financial burdens just to be in business. I can go on but this is just a quick overview if Obama is re-elected.

Under Romney you can count on the leadership of someone who is an experienced, successful manager and CEO from the private sector. He became wealthy not from inheritance but through his own hard work, talents and abilities. He build great success at Bain Capital which the Obama campaign demonizes in a grossly unfair way… in fact the attacks are complete mischaracterizations and lies. The truth is Bain Capital has done more to contribute to the US economy than Obama has ever done as a community organizer. The company’s role is as investor and turn around artist. They pick companies they think have potential but are in trouble and inject capital and smart management to turn the company around. They have tons of successes like AMC Entertainment, Burger King, Toys ‘R’ Us, Burlington Coat Factory, Clear Channel Communications, Domino’s Pizza, The Sports Authority, Warner Music Group, and Staples, Inc. Just take Staples for example. They now employs over 100,000 people throughout the US and that’s just Staples! Nothing Obama ever did either as a citizen or a state Senator comes remotely close to that. Under a Romney administration you can count on smaller more efficient government and one that works for us not against us. He will support businesses and lower tax rates as he said over and over again on his stumps. Why is that good? When businesses and entrepreneurs know they can count on a smaller government to not get in their way but instead be a partner they will prosper. Lower tax rates will make America more competitive and will attract investors from around the world. When investors pour money and resources into the United States our economy grows, expands and we create jobs…. millions of them! And that all leads to a more robust tax base for government! Remember, government does not create wealth, the private sector does. Government is only an expense because it only spends money and does not make money! When there is private investment and jobs are created, we put people back to work. Now we have people going back into the workforce who were unemployed and collecting food stamps and other government hand outs. So we lessen that burden on government requiring less revenue to pay for people who do not work! Which BTW, is not what the modern Democrat Party (or the Progressive Party) wants. They want you to depend on big government so they control the vote and stay in power. This to me is fundamentally anti-American and clearly, this is absolutely NOT the Democrat Party of JFK anymore!

A couple of other important items to note: Before Obama became President, he accused President Bush of making the world a more dangerous place and driving our debt to $9 Trillion. Four years later under President Obama’s watch, our national debt has surpassed $16 Trillion and the world is on fire with turmoil and the Middle East is becoming more unstable by the day! There is no doubt America must maintain a strong military. Yet Obama’s 2nd term will guarantee more military cuts while he will increase spending to grow welfare and bigger government. On the other hand Romney has said he believes in peace through strength and pledges to keep our military the number one in the world. I for one would sleep better at night knowing that.

Finally, whoever becomes the next president will likely be in a position to appoint at least 2 Supreme Court justices to replace those who will likely retire. This is critically important because of the cases that have come before the Supreme Court most have been ruled on 5-4 which barely holds the line for constitutionality. What does that mean? It means, if Obama is re-elected, he will appoint liberal-progressive justices to create a leftist majority so that only liberal-progressive positions will pass the Supreme Court. It is well known that liberal-progressives do not believe the US Constitution and believe it to be flawed. As a conservative I would argue that is a position that betrays America’s founding and in fact is unconstitutional. While historians and scholars will debate until the end of time the merits of the progressive point of view. The fact remains, our Constitution is the law of the land and the progressives have worked for 100 years to render our founding document irrelevant. Why worry? Because the liberal-progressive justices who are on the court now are all people who espouse those views and if they are in the majority this will permanently tip the balance to the extreme left so as to cause irreparable damage to our Constitution and perhaps achieve the progressive’s century long goal of altering our Constitution to such an extent so that the key pillars of liberty for Americans may be lost forever. If that happens we will no longer recognize the United States of America. Kiss the American dream good bye and along with that our freedoms. So it’s indeed very serious. Romney on the other hand will likely appoint Constitutional justices instead who will adhere to their oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution and that will save our country.

As you can see you have touched a nerve! I’m very passionate about what is about to happen to our beloved country and it’s no joking matter. I want to thank you for asking me those questions and I hope what I’ve written here will help as you make the right choice when you vote next week.

If you agree with what I’ve outlined here, I ask that you share this with as many undecided voters like yourself as you can. We desperately need an informed electorate to decide this election. Our nation’s future depends on it!

God Bless America!
Dexter
