Is this where we are headed?

Beginning in earnest last year I began a campaign of letter writing to elected United States Representatives, Senators, and the White House under both President Bush and now President Obama. Some of you have received some of those letters with a request to contact your representatives.

The tone of all of my correspondence has been that of a citizen who is fed up with the government for spending money we do not have!! We are experiencing economic deflation, and taking control of private business, that I believe it is in violation of the constitutional rights of business owners, shareholders, and frankly every citizen of this country.

Ask the Bank of America shareholders Or Chrysler, or currently GM shareholders, today if their rights were violated. Then the government forced B of A's CEO to purchase Merrill Lynch for $15 Billion more than its' value. I didn't know the facts at that time, however I knew government had no right to enter into the making of business decisions for shareholders, with or without full disclosure.

I have further stated my intent to exercise any and all of my rights as a citizen. To do everything in my power to see that any elected official who refuses to govern according to the constitution, and who refuses to act in an official capacity according to the wishes, beliefs, and demands of the public be removed from public office.

I have also voiced my opinion that career politicians are the antithesis of the views of the framers, and called for single term limits of any elected office. In no way did I ever suggest anything other than our constitutional rights as citizens to control our government's actions.

Yesterday, as a result of one of my letters,
I was paid a visit by the Joint Terrorism Task Force of the FBI.

One Senator, (So and So), reported to the FBI that he felt I was endangering the government and should be investigated as a suspected terrorist.

This after every single one my letters was sent through the official website of the government, and contained all of my personally identifying information and was specifically stated as advising each U. S. Senator that I was offering political opinion about pending legislation, or governmental policy.

Apparently, as this left leaning Congress, Senate, and White House, assaults our rights on a daily basis. They are now resorting to reporting dissenters of their policies to the FBI, as a terrorist threat.

Since when did expressing a political opinion, or disagreeing with the passage of Socialist bills in the legislature become terrorist in nature? I have specifically objected vehemently to the TARP, TALC, Economic Recovery Act, Omnibus Spending Bill, President Obama's 3.6 trillion dollar budget, cap and trade, and every other anti capitalist bill put forth in the 111th Congress.

The FBI agent was very polite and respectful. He explained why I had been targeted and by whom, Senator (So and So), and assured me that this would be the end of it. I explained to him in answer to his questions what and why I had written.

At first I was rather amused that a Senator would do such a childish piss ant thing. I immediately starting penning out a new letter to the Honorable Senator, then left it to cool before sending it.

I spent all of my adult life defending this nation, against all enemies foreign or domestic. Reasonably well decorated, and now I am investigated as a Terrorist against this Nation?

Is this where we are headed?

The realization of the intent of this Senator's action, and the resulting wariness on my part to write anymore letters came rising up as rage that an elected representative in the United States of America would even dare do such a thing.

Is this the Socialistic Fascism the current majority is pushing on the American people? Is this soon to be followed by not only political Fascism, but Tyranny, at the hands of our own Federal law enforcement agencies?

Simply at the direction of some political hack Senator? Is this truly the last of it, or am I now identified somewhere as a terrorist threat to be watched?

I share this here because many of you are writing the same letters. If you have also been targeted, or if you are in the future, we all have the need to know. Your responses are welcome.
