Letters to the Editor

Figurehead


Dear East Hampton Independent Editor,

In order to distract the public from the abject failure of this administration, they point to the economy and how the tax cuts for the wealthy has been of benefit to everyone. Rubbish!

At the same time, tax subsidies for the wealthy have accelerated the growing concentration of wealth and income in the U.S. The disparity of wealth in this country is not only greater than at any time since the 1920s, but it is far greater than in any other major industrialized country on earth. It is not acceptable that the wealthiest one percent of our population owns more wealth than the bottom 95 percent. It is not acceptable that the 13,000 wealthiest families in this country earn more income than the bottom 20 million families.

There is nothing that this administration with Bush as its figurehead, has set forth to benefit us, the people, and not his wealthy base. It is about time we reminded him, or whomever keeps charge of his memory, that we are the people and he works for us.  We pay his wages and hopefully will dump him as the disgraceful failure he has proven to be.  History will have a good laugh looking back at the early 21st century and the numbing of the brain of America and how some enigmatic administration almost brought the country to its knees.

We will recover from this embarrassing 2000 to 2008 history of our country.  I would hate to be the next president because patience has been strained and if the next administration cannot rectify the mess that Bush has made of our country in just a few months, that person will be declared as ineffective as the inept prior Executive.
