Letter: Who's fooling who?

To the Editor:

It is said that “it's easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled”. The fear of the Founding Fathers has come true. The politicians keep us distracted by keeping us busy working hard to pay for the taxes they levy upon us lest we have the IRS knocking on our door for non-payment and it has worked.

5,000 illegals will protest deportation policies in public while the government says it’s too hard to find illegals. Has anyone noticed that the number of projected dead keeps going up every time Obamacare repeal is brought up? I’m told 20 million people will die without Obamacare; then why didn’t they die before Obamacare? Why is that the same people that mocked Sarah Palin for seeing Russia from her house (which she never did claim) now see Russians all over the place? Why is it that we blame the NRA when Muslims yell Allah Akbar while shooting innocent people? Why’s there so many shootings in Chicago with the toughest gun laws, and why do people who favor higher taxes not move to Chicago? Why do we take God out of schools and then tell then give a Bible to children when they go to jail? Why do the people who push for open borders and integration live in gated communities and why is it greedy to want to keep your own money but ok to want someone else’s money? Why do shopping malls and centers sell skinny and slim fit clothes and then sell fast food in the food court? Why was hacking Hillary’s unsecured private servers and exposing her crimes a felony? Why do politicians who cannot remember or recall the events they were involved in, say they are best qualified for the job? Why is “Real Fake” in front of Trump Towers instead of the TV stations with the weatherman and the sportscasters who always pick the wrong team to win a championship? Why is there zero tolerance for sexual harassment in the same schools that are pushing neutral gender showers? Why do so many schools, politicians and courts find the 8th Commandment “offensive”? In 1969 we put a man on the moon; today we put men in women’s bathrooms.

I question all authority these days and wonder whether the politicians and the media are trying to put me on or if they really believe their own rhetoric.
