Every few days I get yet another mailing begging me for money for your campaign.  There is always explicit language about my being one of your supporters.  But I do not support you for president.  You are an abomination, because of your support for President George W. Bush and his unjustified, immoral and illegal Iraq war.  Everyone who sees a McCain presidency as a continuation of the Bush administration is totally correct.


Apparently I receive all of your solicitations and phone calls because years ago I contributed a small amount when you were running in the primary against George W. Bush.  As an independent, back then I saw you as someone with integrity and honesty.  That is no longer true.


Your unabashed support for Bush’s war and your public actions showing admiration for him are an insult to your military and public service career.


It is not, as you assert, that the presidential race “will be won on experience, issues and ideas, because that is what separates me from my Democrat opponents.”  What really separates you from the Democratic opponents is you embarrassing, disgraceful and disgusting support of Bush and the Iraq war.  You are nothing but a warmonger.  You have no valid basis for being president.

Any why are so many lobbyists working for your campaign if you truly are against corporate corruption and the high costs of so much lobbying?   It seems that you whole straight-talk pitch has been a clever but deceitful lie.


So stop asking me to “renew” my commitment.  I never have made any commitment whatsoever to your current run for the presidency.  And I deeply hope that the vast majority of Americans will reject a McBush presidency.


By the way, for every mailing I receive I take all the contents, place them in the postage-paid envelope and send them back to you, so that your campaign loses a little more money.

So perhaps you should keep sending me solicitations so that you waste more money.  I especially enjoyed tearing that big photo of you and your wife into little pieces and returning them to you.


You ended your last letter to me with “Please let me hear from you soon.”  Consider this my response.  And for god sake, stop saying “Joel, you are part of my winning team.”  Get the money you want from the idiots that support the Iraq war and think that wasting the lives of thousands of Americans has been justified or ever will be.
