Letter: Use your power and vote


It is time for a Day of Reckoning. Time to bury the movement of wealth from the low, middle and taxpayers in general, to the top 10 percent.

Starting with the sad, misguided trickle-down scam of Ronald Reagan the system has been controlled more and more by the wealthy and corporate America with the right-wing propaganda machine duping its followers into support by dressing lies and conspiracy as truth.

It is time we admit that Fox News and the right-wing propaganda machine is what it is: a threat to national security and the very welfare of this great nation and its people. And don’t insult me with an argument on free speech. Free speech doesn’t apply when it directly results in thousands of dead Americans, anymore than it protects you from yelling “Fire” in a theater. And make no mistake, there are dead people simply because they listened to the right-wing propaganda spewing from Fox, Rush and the likes.

Our Constitution clearly puts the power in the hands of the people. The 90 percent have power over the 10 percent if we only listen to truth and take control at the ballot box.

Power to the people. Vote!
