Charlie Daniels–An Open Letter to Politicians: You Have Completely Forgotten About We the People

cnsnews.com

By Charlie Daniels

 

This is an open letter to Democrats, Republicans, independents, liberals, conservatives and every other ilk of politician who is elected by the votes of Americans.

While I realize that there are two, three or sometimes more sides to a story, and understand the importance of representing the views of the electorate that put you in office, what I simply cannot understand is the partisan intransigence that would prevent grown, mature men and women from showing the molecule of reason it takes to reach decisions based on something other than that the opposing party supports it.

And in your self-righteous zeal to toe the party line, you have completely forgotten about we the people and the welfare of the nation you’re supposed to be serving.

It’s become a game with you people. You’ve all turned into tattletales, petulant pubescent third graders, all bent on becoming teacher’s pet and doing anything it takes to garner a few more votes.

You’d rather deprive the nation of a benefit than to let the other party get the credit for passing it. There is no loyalty among you, and you will run away from a colleague who does something unpopular before the ink on the defaming article has even dried.

You’d give citizenship to aardvarks if they could vote and say anything, accuracy and honesty be damned, and kiss a flatulent skunk’s posterior before you’d do or say anything that would make the other party look good.

I sometimes wonder how you see yourselves, as a knight on a white horse saving the nation, or as the rest of us see you, as a poorly-mounted, impotent Don Quixote charging dilapidated windmills in rusty armor.

And I wonder if any of you realize how very out of touch with what’s actually happening in the real world you are and how much that world has changed since you moved into your ivory tower, back when bell bottoms were in style.

I truly believe that when our forefathers designed our political system they never made allowances for career politicians. I believe the system was designed for a citizen politician to serve a term or two and then vacate the seat so somebody who actually knows what’s happening in the streets now can come in with a fresh opinion and without 20 or 30 years of partisan political baggage and obligations.

Well, let me tell you something boys and girls, this ain’t no game, and you’re treating it like one. Your acid pot shots at your opponents, your blind party loyalty, your seething opposition to anything the other party supports are but a few of the prime factors in the deep divisions we are experiencing and the almost universal distrust the public feels for you.

You play fast and hard with the truth when it suits your purposes; you become chameleons, changing shapes and even nationalities if it gives you any slight edge.

Some of you sink to telling blatant lies, even at the expense of whoever happens to be standing in your way.

You will even carry your folly so far as to shut down the government rather than sitting down like rational human beings and working out your differences.

We send you to office to work together, not to preen for the TV cameras or spend half your term trying to get elected to another term.

If any business in this nation handled their affairs in the way you people do, they would miserably fail, and that’s exactly what you people are doing, miserably failing.

You work for we the people, not your political party and you’d d— well better start acting like it.

America is bleeding, and we don’t need you deepening the wound.

What do you think?

Pray for our troops, our police and the peace of Jerusalem

God Bless America

Charlie Daniels’ Open Letter to America’s Enemies: You See Obama, But You Don’t Know America

Something never rang true about the apprehension and boarding of two American Naval vessels by the Iranian Navy. Something just didn’t seem right.

These boats were equipped with the kind of space age navigational devices that should have forgone any doubt where they were within a couple of yards.

If one boat became disabled, why didn’t the other boat tow it back to safe international waters?

Barring all else, why didn’t the Iranians abide by centuries old maritime tradition to assist a disabled vessel of a nation you’re not at war with? We’re not at war with Iran, or are we?

Why did John Kerry make a public statement praising and thanking the Iranians for their humane treatment of our Naval personnel knowing that Iran had boarded our vessel, disarmed the sailors and forced them to kneel with their hands on their heads? Why would he do so after seeing that Iran had photographed these sailors, using the photo as an embarrassing international public relations ploy and showing the world just how spineless the Obama administration is? Just how much humiliation and insult he is willing to take?

Then, during a parade, the Iranians staged a float with Iranians dressed like American sailors on a boat standing in total submission while being laughed at and ridiculed by the people on the street.

This is tantamount to rubbing America’s face in a manure pile. It was an attempt to suggest that America is supposedly weak, spineless and totally unable when it comes to protecting itself. It was meant to suggest that America has become a cowering, impotent nation whose president can be pushed around, humiliated, threatened and ridiculed without any threat of retaliation.

Putin did it, China is doing it, and now a third rate Islamic dictatorship ruled by religious fanatics is pushing Obama all over the board for the rest of the world to see just how easy it is. You can bet there will be much more to follow.

John Kerry should resign, because what he did actually gave aid and comfort to a nation that wants to destroy us. His sickening platitudes enabled the Iranians to farther this farce and humiliate this nation even more by releasing photos of one of the American sailors apparently crying.

America’s enlistment rates are down, and morale in our military is low. Obama has fired so many of our most experienced officers and reduced the size of our services to the point that should we be required to fight on multiple fronts we would be severely strained to do so.

How does the rest of the world perceive America under Obama?

We’re the nation that stood by and didn’t lift a finger when the Iranian public was protesting their government. We voiced no support and did not try to help in any significant way, and the protest was soon quelled.

We’re the nation that drew red lines in Syria and watched them being crossed without a whimper.

We’re the nation that only uttered a few lukewarm words as Putin invaded the Crimea and the Ukraine.

We’re the nation that traded five of the world’s most dangerous terrorists for one American deserter.

We’re the nation that gave away the store to insure that Iran can finance its terrorist attacks and be assured of having a nuclear device in a few years.

We’re the nation that lets anybody who wants to walk across our southern border free reign to do so, and we are the nation that provides sanctuary cities to give them refuge.

NO, WE’RE NOT!!

WE’RE THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!!

And judging us by the weakness and unwillingness of our president and his flower child administration would be a fatal mistake.

An amazing lifelike replica of a slug would be accurate.

Via Examiner:

On Thursday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid called supporters of the Bundy ranch “domestic terrorists” and questioned their patriotism. Country music star Charlie Daniels responded the same day with a tweet saying Reid should be in jail for “impersonating an American.”

“Harry Reid you should be put in jail for impersonating an American,” he tweeted.

“Ouch!” the Twitchy staff wrote. A number of people agreed.

“AMEN Charlie!! I second that motion,” one person said.

“Please keep the light shined on this cockroach @SenatorReid & his punk kids too @CharlieDaniels -you’ve got a powerful torch to do it,” another person added.

Others suggested Obama also be thrown in jail. One Twitter user said that Reid would have been hung for his actions in the days of the wild west.

As we reported earlier today, Reid told the Las Vegas Review-Journal those who supported Bundy are “domestic terrorists” armed with fully automatic rifles. Additionally, he accused Bundy of not paying taxes and not recognizing the United States.

The Nevada Democrat also said he spoke with Attorney General Eric Holder, FBI leaders and Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie about the situation with the Bundy ranch. While speaking with reporters, he indicated that a task force is being set up, and hinted of further action.

Charlie Daniels Defends Gibson Guitar, Says Raid Was Political

Townhall

About a month ago, Gibson guitar was raided by the Obama Justice Department for using “illegal wood.”

Federal agents swooped in on Gibson Guitar Wednesday, raiding factories and offices in Memphis and Nashville, seizing several pallets of wood, electronic files and guitars. The Feds are keeping mum, but in a statement yesterday Gibson’s chairman and CEO, Henry Juszkiewicz, defended his company’s manufacturing policies, accusing the Justice Department of bullying the company. “The wood the government seized Wednesday is from a Forest Stewardship Council certified supplier,” he said, suggesting the Feds are using the aggressive enforcement of overly broad laws to make the company cry uncle.

The Obama Adminstration has been accused of raiding the U.S. based company for political purposes since the company has donated to republicans in the past rather than democrats.

Now, country music legend Charlie Daniels is coming to Gibson’s defense, saying the raid, “just didn’t make any sense,” and that the Obama Adminstration needs to stop messing with American companies.

An Open Letter to President Obama

By Charlie Daniels
Created 09/24/2010

H/T to Bullitt County Freedom Fighters

Mr. President,

I write this letter as a patriot, a taxpayer, a lifelong resident and as concerned citizen of what I consider to be the greatest nation ever known to man, the United States of America.

I am Caucasian, so let’s get the racial aspect out-of-the-way to start with. This letter has nothing to do with your race. I lived through the cruelty of Jim Crow and segregation and learned early on in my life that the color of my skin does not make me better or worse than any other man.

We all remember Martin Luther King, Jr.’s statement about judging people, not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character, and I believe that with all my heart.

I believe that America is an exceptional country. We have been liberator, benefactor and leader of the free world for centuries. America is an example of what can be achieved by free people living under the free enterprise system.

We have led the world in technology, industry, science and medicine for a long time.

Our capitalist system guarantees that those who explore new worlds and bring us new products and better techniques are amply rewarded for their efforts, and this is as it should be.

A person who is the first one to get there and the last one to leave, who burns the midnight oil and never gives up until they realize their goals, are a boon to humankind. They’re the ones who discover new cures, start new industries and create jobs.

These people deserve to be rewarded for their hard work and for the products and services they bring to make life better for all mankind.

Mr. President, it is my personal opinion that you want to take the well-earned rewards of these people and give it to those who have done nothing to deserve them.

It’s really redistribution of wealth, and it’s nothing new. It’s been tried many places before and it has miserably failed in every one of them.

It’s called socialism.

Am I calling you a socialist? Yes, I am. I firmly believe that you are a socialist and a globalist, and that you think America should have a comeuppance and have our playing field leveled to match those of other countries not as industrious or as innovative as we are.

Mr. President, how can you support the building of a mosque in the very same area where Islamic radicals murdered so many Americans?

Just who’s side are you on?

Am I accusing you of being a Muslim? No I’m not, but the jury is still out a little bit on that subject in my mind, because many times your sympathies seem to lean in that direction. You need to watch who you bow to Mr. President.

You have betrayed a whole generation of African-Americans who voted for you because they really believed all that junk about “hope and change,” they really thought you were going to do something great and the only thing you’ve done is to make their jobs disappear and their health insurance go up.

You and your party have corrupted duly elected officials in an effort to get your legislative agenda passed. Remember the “Louisiana Purchase” and the “Cornhusker Kickback,” and that’s just a couple we know about, but you bought off a bunch of congressmen and senators, knowing that you were going against the will of the majority of Americans, because you think that you and your arrogant friends know more about what’s good for America than the citizens your disastrous actions effect.

Am I accusing you of being an elitist? You bet.

I don’t believe you take the Islamic threat to America nearly as seriously as you should. You use semantics like “Overseas Contingency Operation” and “Man Caused Disasters” to soften your rhetoric toward people who would like nothing better than decapitate the entire population of America.

And Mr. President, if you’d really like to know the kind of warriors who are fighting the “Overseas Contingency Operation,” and you would like to really know about what kind of enemies they’re fighting, you should read a book called Lone Survivor by a brave, young Navy Seal named Marcus Lutrell who went to hell and back for his country, and is still a dedicated patriot. I think you’d find it enlightening, Mr. President and after you finish it would you pass it on to Janet Napolitano? And by the way, tell her that my invitation to take her to Iraq and show her some “Man Caused Disasters” is still open.

Am I calling you naïve? Absolutely.

You seem to think that America has an endless supply of tax dollars for you to waste and give away, and the debt you’ve piled up could well bankrupt the greatest nation on earth.

Am I calling you a failure, Mr. President? With all due respect that’s exactly what I’m doing.
