FRONT PAGE CONTRIBUTOR
Mr. President, I AM THE MOB
President Barack Obama, I am writing this to let you know that I am the mob.
You see those people crowding in front of courthouses, in the streets, and in public spaces in towns and cities across the country as part of the Tea Party movement? That’s me. You see those people daring to hold their Senators, Congressmen and Women, and other public officials accountable for their position on your healthcare bill? That’s me.
You may call it astroturfing, but I think you and I both know that’s it’s the real deal. Your attempts to socialize healthcare, your constant apologies for America, and your tax-and-spend ways, among other things, are making all sorts of Americans across this great country angry. This is the grassroots in action, and no matter what you do, no matter how hard you try to impugn or discredit us, we will not be stopped.
I am the mob.
I know you may never read this, but I think it’s important for you to know why this has happened.
I am the mob because I am a college student, who at 20 years old, is going to have to bear the burden of the debt your tax-and-spend ways are placing on me.
I am the mob because I am going to have to deal with the consequences of your mistakes in ways that you will never know.
I am the mob because I believe a free market is just that.
I am the mob because I do not want my money thrown at a cap-and-tax scheme that will only destroy our economy even further.
I am the mob because I believe workers ought to be able to choose if they want to unionize or not without some union thug watching them.
I am the mob because I do not believe the air waves, whether radio or TV, ought to be bound by the Fairness Doctrine.
I am the mob because I am tired of being insulted and accused of spreading “disinformation” when I disagree with you.
I am the mob because I want the freedom to choose my health insurance plan.
I am the mob because I want the freedom to choose both my doctors and what they can do to me.
I am the mob because I do not want to be cast aside by a government healthcare system when I have outlived my usefulness to it.
I am the mob because I am tired of seeing America apologized for endlessly in your visits overseas.
I am the mob because I am tired of seeing you draw moral equivalence between America and her enemies.
I am the mob because I do not want terrorists housed here on US soil.
I am the mob because I want to win the War on Terror.
I am the mob because, in the words of Ronald Reagan, “I will not stand by and watch this great country destroy itself under mediocre leadership that drifts from one crisis to the next, eroding our national will and purpose.”
I am a Christian. I am a conservative. I am a man. I am a friend. I am a college student. I am an American who is concerned with the direction his country is taking.
In short, I AM THE MOB.
