This is a different route to letters???? Is it correct?

Dear Rick:

Obama believes that government has the answers to almost everything. History has shown otherwise. In fact, allowing government to solve the peoples’ problems has, historically, been bad news for the peoples’ liberty and freedom. That perspective is probably why Thomas Jefferson, one of our freedom loving Founding Fathers, said, “I own that I am not a friend to a very energetic government, it is always oppressive.”

Did you notice that Jefferson said that a very energetic government is always oppressive? Ergo, a vote for Obama is a vote for more oppression. It is why, fair reader, I do not understand why any true American would vote for him.

I wrote the first two paragraphs before the election. So, now, three weeks later, I will admit that I remain shell shocked because I had become hopeful of a different outcome. And because I love America so much for the freedom she has given to me, I am more discouraged than ever about her future because Obama believes in a
“very energetic government.”
