Dear Neocon


Dear Neocon,

You believe you are God's gift to the United States of America. If only people "thought" more like you this nation would be in great shape.
Your feeble mind parrots the words you've listened to on the radio or TV. You speak of liberty and the principals that made this country great, while supporting candidates whom will ruin those ideas. You feel "awake" and "informed" because some self proclaimed "great American" or conservative "leader" disc jockey told you it was so.

You proudly say you support the troops and even have a very nice yellow ribbon magnet on the back of your car. Yey!! Your sense of patriotism is appreciated. Yet, you fail to realize that it is nothing more than a rouse. You believe that America's way of life is threatened by "scary" Arab men thousands of miles away. Formally C.I.A. assets, those groups serve no other purpose than to scare you into supporting the loss of life and limb of our brothers and sisters. You are willing to give up your freedoms for liberty. You are allowing America to become the "land of the coward home of the slave". You support billions of dollars going towards the killing of thousands of people, including our own, for the sake of an undefined victory.

You feel as the outsider thinking out of the box, a true conservative, simply due to your support of an underdog posing as a real conservative. Truth be told, the only real conservative with liberty in mind is the the candidate who "can't win". You hear and repeat the line as if it were a junior school rumor that would bring you popularity and acceptance. You drop the name Reagan as if it were a holy word. When Reagan won a crucial line, now forgotten, was - Barry Goldwater won, it just took years to happen (or something like that, it was before my time.)

If this is you... Don't worry. I used to be you. Research, think for yourself, break away from your trance, or just take the easy way out and follow the sheep to the slaughter.

Will you wait for the next actor to play the role of a true conservative? Or will you break your peer pressure built mold and think for yourself? The troops you so support have cast their monetary vote. The records of the candidates are out there for public review. The future of America rests in your hands.
