I just sent this letter to the White House through their comment form at whitehouse.gov.  I am thoroughly disgusted with the United States’ support of that socialist thug.

Mr. President,

I am angry and disappointed that your administration supports Manuel Zelaya in returning to power in Honduras.  It is clear that Zelaya violated Honduran law in his failure to enact properly passed legislation in Congress, and it is also clear that as a friend of Hugo Chavez and Raul Castro, he is an enemy of freedom and democracy. He sought a referendum that would have removed term limits in the Honduran Constitution, thus cementing his power as dictator of that nation.  How can America support this?  Further, why are we interfering in what was clearly a legal and proper removal of a criminal from government?  They even managed it without anyone getting hurt.  Zelaya tried to return, and they blocked his plane from landing. They could have simply shot it out of the sky, and would have been fully justified in doing so, yet they did not.

You say that we should be impartial regarding other nations’ form of government. I disagree. We can and must be vocal defenders of liberty, and we should take every opportunity to denounce socialism and leftist thuggery no matter where it is found.

Mr. Obama, we should not be attempting to return Zelaya to power. We should be supporting the just rule of law in Honduras, and congratulating them on their successful defense of democracy in removing Zelaya.

I feel a sense of despair in being just one voice in this nation. I debate the merit in even sending such comments. Kyle points out that positions are counted, and the government does tally such things.  I presume this is true.  I have to, otherwise I succumb to apathy and disinterest like so many of my countrymen.

    Barack Obama’s book, “The Audacity of Hope,” provides a appealing title. It has a taste of bravery mixed with confidence. You’ll find nothing Pollyanna concerning this. I might not support every part he tells, but he’s our president, as well as for me, he creates trust. Which can do more for just a country than any number of backroom deals. Hope gives us energy, and energy sustains us through trying times. Boy, we’ve had them. I’m from West Texas, and I did not vote for Bush. When McCain ran against Obama, I was a citizen of Arizona, but I gave audacious hope a chance. The fight for progress and laying the foundations of prosperity is not over. I have come across the quips of those who don’t think Obama is capable of it. But step back a moment. Would anyone have most of us fail simply to tarnish the star of an incumbent for whom they didn’t vote? Keeping our priorities straight, let’s work together with this president and build our future.
