Dear Editor,

I am sick of being told that we have to destroy all of the progress we have made toward realizing the Vision (The Constitution) of our founding fathers to satisfy the desire of a few to have power or maximize profits.

I re-read the Declaration of Independence recently and was astounded by the similarities between the injustice suffered then and the injustice we suffer now.

Americans have fought and died for the freedom to vote and participate in self-governance. Americans have fought and died for the dignity of equality of civil rights. Americans have fought and died for the right of voice in the workplace to improve work conditions and safety, wages and hours; to create our middle class.

How dare anyone suggest that all this was given to the masses as Santa Claus pandering to win the vote? How dare anyone suggest that we must suffer the worst abuses to our dignity, health and environment to be competitive? How dare anyone suggest that we must bow to government supported economic tyranny by monopolies? These are the “Facts” of injustice that our founding fathers rebelled against.

We have the vision, science, wisdom and will to make things so much better.

Respectfully,

Roberta Hackett
