Letter to Obama

I'm posting yet again to my favorite blog. I will be trying my best to post much more, including on topics that are more personal, different and perhaps very unique. I will also be posting comments I write from other blogs and media forums, as I would like to have these recorded in one place for fun and posterity.

In the meantime, I received very complimentary feedback (from very awesome people) on the letter I wrote to Obama to commemorate the Nationwide Chicago Tea Party, as initiated by the skilled oratory of Rick Santelli. In the signed and mailed letter, I included a nice packaged bag of Lipton tea:

President Obama:

Today is the kick-off the of the Nationwide Tea Party, so I am enclosing one tea bag to remind you that I am not your slave nor the slave of any other person with "needs" — that the wealth that I earn is mine, and the money that you forcibly take from me is theft.

While you are in office, I will be fighting for my property rights and, most of all, my rights as a sovereign individual — to think, act and produce by my own mind and actions.

You plan to force your way into my bank account even more. But as long as there is a place to say it, I will make known to as many Americans I can that what you are doing is immoral. Stealing any amount of my money to give to anyone is immoral, no matter what the purpose.

With this tea bag, I am telling you that I do not sanction your vicious attacks on my livelihood. I understand that you are boldly lying when you claim to want to reduce the federal deficit and pay lip service to the noble idea of personal responsibility, while encouraging every ne’er-do-well to dip into the public loot.

You are not my boss or parent or dictator, even though you want to force this relationship on me. I do not accept this abusive, parasitic relationship, and I promise to fight my entire life to teach others the moral ideas of individual rights, rational self-interest and unsullied capitalism in order to stop thieves like you.

As Samuel Adams once said, "It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds." I, along with my friends, will never willingly bend to your grotesque demands. You may make more slaves out of people, including nationalizing healthcare to make slaves of doctors, but you will never have my moral sanction.

With great sincerity,

Amy Nasir
