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

It can’t be said or sung better than patriot Charlie Daniels.

Got to leave this one alone!

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.

 

See the entire article below.

 

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

  1. We need God-fearing men and women to serve this nation, who believe that the character qualities of self-respect and integrity outweigh any sort of political policy or grievance of lobbyists,etc. We also need a return to the true and lasting faith that founded America, which was based on the Word of God in the Holy Bible.
    We need Christian leadership which be willing to stand up and fearlessly defend and speak the truth in these uncertain and perilous days in which we are living.
    One of my best-loved heroes of the faith was the late Reverend Peter Marshall Sr.(1902-1949) Born in Scotland, he came here to America as a young, penniless immigrant, but, who, by the grace of God, was determine to answer the Lord’s call on his life to become a minister of the Gospel in the United States of America.
    Reverend Peter Marshall Sr. was later twice-elected to serve as Chaplain of the United States Senate. (1946-1949)

  2. Charlie is correct from start to finish! This letter needs to be copied and sent to EVERY person who is an elected official of the any level of government, not just federal. They all have a part in this hemorrhage that is killing our great land. It starts at the top and flows all the way to the lowest level of government. The school boards are as corrupt as the House. They need to start being made to answer to We The People again. BUT We The People need to make this happen and it is WORK. A 4 letter word that scares some people because it involves confrontation and getting out of our comfort zones. It also means we must confront the meanies of the left and they are ugly people when told to stand down. But if we really continue in Ann Coutlers path, we will win. We are the greater number. We can overcome evil with good. Lets do it!
