Why the President scares me, an open letter to him

I received an email today from Don Wildmon of the American Family Association (AFA) containing a letter written by a former vice-president of Proctor and Gamble. That letter was originally sent to the New York Times, but was never published by that burned out lighthouse of biased leftward propaganda. However, the letter made its way to the Internet, where is is being read by thousands upon thousands. The following is a copy of that letter. The italicised headings are mine.
.

Dear President Obama:


You are the thirteenth President under whom I have lived and unlike any of the others, you truly scare me.


YOUR STEALTH PAST

You scare me because after months of exposure, I know nothing about you.

YOUR SOURCE OF FINANCIAL SUPPORT IN COLLEGE

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.

YOUR NON-AMERICAN UPBRINGING

You scare me because you did not spend the formative years of youth growing up in America and culturally you are not an American.

YOUR LACK OF EXECUTIVE EXPERIENCE

You scare me because you have never run a company or met a payroll.

YOUR LACK OF MILITARY EXPERIENCE


You scare me because you have never had military experience, thus don't understand it at its core.

YOUR ARROGANCE & LACK OF PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY

You scare me because you lack humility and 'class', always blaming others.

YOUR RADICAL FRIENDS & CONFIDANTS

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.


YOUR PUTTING DOWN OF AMERICA HERE & OVERSEAS

You scare me because you are a cheerleader for the 'blame America' crowd and deliver this message abroad.

YOUR LOVE OF EUROPEAN SOCIALISM


You scare me because you want to change America to a European style country where the government sector dominates instead of the private sector.

YOUR DESIRE TO NATIONALIZE HEALTH CARE

You scare me because you want to replace our health care system with a government controlled one.

YOUR WISHFUL, SHORT-SIGHTED ENERGY POLICY

You scare me because you prefer 'wind mills' to responsibly capitalizing on our own vast oil, coal and shale reserves.

YOUR LOATHING OF AMERICAN CAPITALISM

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.

YOUR USE OF EXTORTION AGAINST THOSE WHO MAY DISAGREE


You scare me because you have begun to use 'extortion' tactics against certain banks and corporations.


YOUR EXCESSIVE, WASTEFUL SPENDING

You scare me because your own political party shrinks from challenging you on your wild and irresponsible spending proposals.


YOUR CLOSED-MINDEDNESS

You scare me because you will not openly listen to or even consider opposing points of view from intelligent people.

YOUR GOD-COMPLEX & DESIRE TO BE WORSHIPPED

You scare me because you falsely believe that you are both omnipotent and omniscient.

YOUR SWAY OVER THE MEDIA

You scare me because the media gives you a free pass on everything you do.

YOUR PLAN TO SILENCE OPPOSING VIEWS


You scare me because you demonize and want to silence the Limbaughs, Hannitys, O'Relllys and Becks who offer opposing, conservative points of view.

YOUR DESIRE TO EXPAND GOVERNMENT CONTROL

You scare me because you prefer controlling over governing.

YOUR HAVING A SECOND TERM

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.
