Letter to the President
You should loudly and clearly direct your administration to always put the justice principles foremost and treat no man inhumanely, even the misguided terrorists. Contain them or kill them if they insist on threatening our citizens or military, but torture is never an acceptable procedure. It will eventually corrupt an honorable pursuit. (I respect Senator McCain's insistences on this issue.)
I am tired of feeling guilty about my lack of involvement when we are at war and men are dying. No one asks me to sacrifice anything. It’s like business as usual. I and my neighbors just continue on our self seeking ways. No wonder there are so many who want to bring the troops home before the job is done. We feel guilty. Tax the socks off of us or brow beat us into buying War Bonds. Do something so we can FEEL proud of our efforts to support this war. This kind of approach may be too late to keep the White House from being overwhelmed with criticism from us hundreds of millions of non-participants, but it would sure feel good anyway. An honest, simple, pay as we go breath of fresh air.
