As I read the comments found in news sites in the Internet I see that a lot of the people commenting express a lot of hate. That hate, I believe, comes from the frustration of knowing that our country is being ruined by all the wars we participate in and that we get very little, if you don’t count the hate we generate overseas, from them.
Lately, we are told, a Staff Sergeant if Afghanistan, suffering from God knows what kind of brain trauma, went bunkers and murdered innocent people in two different villages. We are told to believe that all this happened without anyone in the base being the wiser.
We don’t know if the story is true or not, I myself don't believe it, but from the comments I read I get the idea that we do know that we should not be there. In fact, in another news article a poll was taken and the results say that around two thirds of the people of this nation are against participating in any more wars but; what can we do about it?
I believe that a place does not exist where we, as a people, can express our ideas. Freedom of speech has become a joke, so, as far as the politicians are concerned, it does not matter what we want. What does matter, as far as they are concerned, is that they keep making the richer more richer and the rest of us are left to our luck.
Therefore I though that we can make the politicians hear our voice if we go trough a simple process. We just have to make them aware of our will. I believe most of us would like to see our soldiers out of Afghanistan. If this is so, we could write a letter to the President expressing that idea and only that idea. We could write the letter and put it in the mail on July 4 of this year.
If enough of us do this the post office will be overloaded. They will have a hell of a time trying to deliver those letters. This being so, the politicians will not be able to deny the incident and everybody in the nation would know what transpired and, so, if this is a democratic nation, then our President will have to obey his peoples wish.
Those of you who agree should spread the idea. If you do the results might give us a way to influence our government.
