To the editor:
The Gospel according to Obama: The 18-to29-year-old voting group is juicy political picking. The younger segment of the group has no experience in making rational political decisions; the college group has been indoctrinated by the socialist progressive professors and instructors; the remainder is infatuated with quickie promises of pie-in-the-sky campaigning they soon forget.
The polls now show the 18-to-29-age voting group is subscribing to the "fool me once, shame on you." "Fool me twice, shame on me." Some voted for "Hope and Change." This is excusable; however the changes they see leave them with an unbelievable lifetime six digit debt. Those who voted to avoid the "bigot" tag now realize that skin color or religion is not synonymous with acceptable leadership. The college group mainly understand socialistic dribble; for the most part, it goes in one ear and out the other. The group attempted to be mesmerized with Saturday Night Live Talk Show Host snappy one-liners should be, and are, the most offended. They are presumed to have the mentality of sheep and will easily succumb to community organizing campaigning. The administration is now aware that its mentality is exceeded by this group.
I offer my sincere congratulations to the 18-to-29-age voting group. The polls show you are examining actions and promises made by our present administration, your local and state representatives. Your approval or disapproval is your own choice. The important part is your desire to know.
I offer a suggestion and invitation to attend a meeting of the Mifflin County 9-12 Tea Party. Party affiliations are not important. You will get insight into future and present legislation - national and local; hear your political representatives give their views; get the opportunity to offer yours. The younger voting group has many talents and ideas. All could benefit by your participation. The meetings are held on the second Tuesday of the month, the time is 6:30 p.m. and the place is the Mifflin County Library basement.
I offer one more thought to the group: The influx of 800,000 Illegal Dream Act recipients will hit your job market possibilities and pocketbooks like a ton of bricks.
