Dear Aunt Terry,
Enclosed is a general rundown (in two news articles here and here)
of what this country is in for, with an unlawful President backed by
Christian fundamentalists and Nazi sympathizers. Of course, the gay
issue is totally ignored in these authors' appeals for sanity, even
though we ARE the main target these days of gov't and social
oppression...and remain the most widely hated and persecuted than any
other minority. If truth be told, homosexuality is NOT a minority
issue, it is a MAJORITY issue, since MOST people are naturally born
So what we have is a VAST MAJORITY of humans
pretending to be 100% hetero, who are MOSTLY bisexual (approx. 80%).
And it is precisely THIS hypocrisy which is the ROOT of much violence
in the world...and underlies most other violent matters, such as wars
fought over oil, land, water, etc.
It is a SHAME that you still
vote Republican, after all the information I sent you...especially how
the GOP is out for our gay blood! And the ONLY reason you gave is
"They're good with my money." For one, Democrats and liberals are not
"bad" with citizen money...in fact, they are a LOT more responsible
with seeing that taxes go back to us in the form of universal health
care, decent housing, jobs, etc.
I am NOT saying you ought to
switch to the Dems...as they, too, are selling out us homosexuals who
are brave enough to NOT go back in hiding...and believe me, there are
FEWER and fewer each day. Just be an independent voter, is my strategy.
But for Chrissake, how can ANYONE with a compassionate bone in her
body, remain Republican these days?
It is ALSO a shame that
money is valued over the well being of citizens who are NOT affluent,
like myself. This has led to my being denied health care, jobs, decent
housing, etc. I have concluded that your attitude strongly suggests
that you DID know the atrocities perpetrated by Hitler's gov't, and
simply deny that. But I can say with CERTAINTY that you DO know what
the present gov't is doing re. persecuting sexual minorities...but
regardless, you still support a party which is virulently anti-gay, as
well as racist, anti-democratic, anti health care, and so on.
that's "being good with your money", I'll have no part of it. I do NOT
want to associate with ANYONE who has voted for Bush...which is mostly
a Republican stance. I consider our association over. I don't want to
touch any money coming from YOUR hand.
(I really did send her this letter; still waiting for any response. Hee-hee.)
