To The Daily Sun,
This is in response to George Maloof's letter in the November 30th Sun:
Mr. Maloof, I had to read your letter regarding Obamacare more than once to determine whether it was meant as sarcasm or if you really believe what you wrote. Going by many of your previous letters I must assume you were serious.
In your contention that "the end justifies the means" you have shown your true colors, meaning that to you anything goes as long as you get what you and the other leftists think we need (or that you want). It doesn't matter if your intent is good as such a path always leads to hell (and I'm not talking about biblical hell, but Hell on Earth). While the context of your letter deals with Obamacare and the lies that were used to justify its passage and implementation, you expanded on it to show that you would have no problem expanding "the end justifies the means" reasoning to cover other actions you and your fellow travelers deem necessary.
For instance, would you use it as an excuse to round up those who oppose your political beliefs and put them into re-education camps in order to push your political agenda? Would you make it a thought crime to question the brilliance of your ideology? Would you be willing to kill millions of your fellow citizens in order to ensure "ideological purity" and to bring about your Progressive Utopia (the aforementioned Hell on Earth)? How far would you take "the end justifies the means", Mr. Maloof? Would you be willing to become the next Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, or Saddam in order to ensure your ideology triumphs? Really, how far would you go?
Your kind of thinking is dangerous, Mr. Maloof, as it shows a willingness to start down that slippery slope to totalitarianism. Either that or you are nothing more than what Lenin once called "a useful idiot".
In addition I must address your twisted view about what happened that evening when George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin had their deadly encounter. First, Zimmerman did not just "gun down" a teenager. He killed someone who was trying their best to kill him, pounding his head against the concrete until he was able to pull his weapon and end the assault. Even the local police knew that to be the case after their investigation, which is why the local prosecutor declined to take the case before a grand jury. It wasn't until the race-baiters and hustlers, including your sainted president, got into the act that a special prosecutor came forth and tried the case... and lost. The evidence bore out Zimmerman's claim of self-defense. While Martin's record was not allowed to be discussed during the criminal trial, all of his dirty laundry would have come out had his family decided to sue Zimmerman in civil court. Poor "innocent Trayvon" would have been shown to be a thief, a drug abuser, and a gangsta wannabe and not the clean-cut kid everyone had been trying to portray.
As I must state yet again for your benefit: You are entitled to your own opinion, but not your own facts.
