Dear Mister Obama:
It is very difficult for the undersigned to correlate the word "elite" when I measure you and your supporters in the "Obama administration" and the Democrats in Congress who have voted for your Marxist-Socialist Agenda.
These, Mister Obama, are nothing more than "Old egalitarian economic theories" that advocate increased state control that continues to feed power-hungry opportunists and brainwashed intelligentsia, many of whom do not even know the source of their "new" ideas, which, as one, who traveled up and down the railroad from Nuremburg, W. Ger., to the former Soviet Union, as a young soldier boy in the American Army, it is easy for me to see your goals and ambitions in the former Soviet Union.
You, Mister Obama, and your fella-traveler "elitists" condescend toward "unwashed" critical and independent thinkers, entrepreneurs, concerned parents and common-sense Americans.
Your supposedly educated people view their social and historical myopia as a sign of sophistication and intelligence.
Those, like the undersigned, who value uniquely American individual liberties, are regarded as stupid and backward.
But for many of our immigrants from the former Soviet Union, who escaped from centrally planned societies, these elites are an ignorant bunch, brainwashed by the brainwashed, with an astoundingly narrow vision.
Preoccupied with your status and image, you Sir, with all due respect, and your blinded sophisticates are ungrateful for the blessings you enjoy due to the simple fact that they were lucky enough to be born in the USA, you, Sir, notwithstanding a birth here!
It is hard to believe Americans would blindly follow their political leaders, teachers and agitators into transforming this country toward a society similar to where I visited, all those many times, back there in the "bad days of the cold war," where people were locked into a "vision" imposed onto them by the state.
The Tragedy, Mister Obama, is that enough Americans were "wowed" by your "change campaign" to bite into your brand of Marxist Socialism "change."
In closed, authoritarian societies, the brainwashing of the population is achieved by subordinating schools, media and arts to an officially approved ideology; suppressing dissent; jamming of outside sources of information, and sealing the borders to citizens inside the country.
These same citizens are taught to believe that their country is the most compassionate, superior society on the planet.
In the USA, information is available for those who are curious and can think.
You, Mister Obama, are attempting to replace America's economic system with state control and reliance on the government.
You are doing this because you and your supporters are brainwashed into believing that their country is inferior, intolerant and unjust and must be transformed.
Was it Michael Moore and his movie about the great Cuban health care system that convinced millions of Americans that their country needs to be transformed?
Or Thomas Friedman, writing columns in the New York Times about China's great engineering projects, built by slaves to the state, as they were in ancient Egypt or Rome?
Was it the university professors, living in their tenured comfort, preaching to their students an imaginary reality, pining for a European welfare model that is in the process of disintegration?
Mister Obama, I've seen the future you talk about, and it is hopeless. I’ve spoken to scores and scores and scores of Russian immigrants who came to this country because of the "hopelessness" of the former Soviet Union.
Their main motivation for emigrating from the USSR was the desire to protect their children from discrimination and a hope for a better future.
Americans who care about the future of their children don't need to emigrate — they need to vote in November to stop Democrats from transforming free people into subservient masses.
And, Mister Obama, I am confident that enough Americans are now awake to your "Marxist-Socialist-Change" themes to "reverse-your-course" come Nov. Second!
Then, too, with all due respect, Mister Obama (I no longer address you as Mr. President) it is my prayer and hope that Americans will continue to awaken, so that by Nov. 2012, they will toss you from office on your head where you and your "fella-Marxist-Socialist" buddies need to be!
