Senator Marco Rubio
317 Hart Senate Office Building
Washington, D.C. 20510

Dear Senator Rubio:

I received your undated “Personal & Confidential – Urgent Reply Requested” telling me “the GOP faces a math problem of epic proportions that simply cannot be ignored.” Your letter goes on to tell me “We lost the African American vote 93%-7%, the Hispanic vote 71%-27% and the vote under 30 by 60%-40%.”

Your first mistake was thinking that I care about what happens to the GOP. There’s not a tinkers damn difference between Democrats and Republicans other than the pace that either will get the American people to the promised land of socialism. My generation sacrificed thousands of American lives in Korea and Vietnam fighting Marxism; now you want me to accept it, condone it and foster it here? No deal!

Your second mistake was playing the divide and conquer game. I did not see African Americans or Hispanic Americans on the battle fields of Vietnam; I don’t see African or Hispanic Americans here now. All I see in America is Americans. If you are not an American you do not belong here. This rhetoric tells me you are part of the problem, not the solution.

I find your comments about our “not needing to change our economic principles nor our values” interesting. If history is correct, we fought and beat Fascism during WWII. Somehow or another however, we practice Fascism here today. [1]  I don’t support that either.

With regard to our “values and conservative philosophy,” we differ. I’m a constitutional conservative; you are not. I support and defend the rule of law; you do not. Your willingness to “compromise” with the likes of Schumer, and McCain et al says a lot about who you are. They trash the Constitution and rule of law with every breath. Mit Gehangen, Mit Gefangen. [Note from Eowyn: "Mitgefangen, mitgehangen" is German for "Cling together, swing together" or "In for a penny, in for a pound".]

Similarly, I do not share the vision or the political construct you are pushing regarding Republicans reaching out to “new voters.” I do not share your ultimate vision of nations without borders.

What you propose is in the Humanist Manifesto of 1973 (Marxist) that deals with American sovereignty. It declares, “Americans must transcend the limits of national sovereignty and move toward the building of a world community. We look to a world order based on transnational federal government.”[7]

Charles Reich, in the “Greening of America,” the manifesto, said “The true revolution is occurring . . . At the present junction of history, commitment to all humankind is the highest commitment of which we are capable; it transcends the narrow allegiances to church, state, party, class or race in moving toward a wide vision. What more daring a goal for humankind than for each person to become, in ideal as well as practice, a citizen of the world community”.”[8]

The idea of the end of nations and the creation of a world government has been to dream of intellectuals since Kant. It is Christian Heresy. Trading the hereafter for the here-and now is the bargain. As Christianity dies in the West the foundation of the first floor of a world government is already in place. The Supreme Court ruling on religion was not an aberration or an accident. Neither is the current invasion of Illegal aliens.

The oft touted “Global Economy” is the precursor to global governance where the UN is the parliament, the Security Council is its upper chamber (abolishing the veto) the General Assembly is the lower house. The International Criminal Court, the World Court, and the World Trade Organization constitute its judicial branches; and the IMF is the Federal Reserve. The World Bank and its sister development banks are the foreign aid agencies. The UN Food and Agricultural Organization and the World Health Organization are an example of its welfare agencies. The Kyoto Protocol and global warming marks the creation of a global EPA. This represents the model and forerunner of the EU. [9] I do not support global governance; neither should you.

Like many other Americans I see my country transforming into something do not I recognize. I resent being a stranger in my own country.

I also reject and vehemently oppose

  • Seeing old holidays disappear.
  • Seeing old heroes degraded.
  • Seeing the art and artifacts of a glorious past removed from their museums and replaced by authors and titles I have never heard of.
  • Seeing the moral code I was raised with being overthrown by a popular culture that is saturated with raw sex that trumpets hedonistic values taught, encouraged, and condoned in public schools which is causing the culture I grew up to die inside the country I grew up in.
  • God being dethroned, my heroes defiled, my culture polluted, my values assaulted and my country invaded.

In summary, I’d really be stupid if I supported your vision for this country with my time and money, don’t you think? When you tell your Republican backers and the rest of the world you are constitutionally ineligible to run for the presidency and you finally decide to do something about the sitting usurper, I will be happy to discuss my support for you. Until then, please take me off your list.

Yours in the Bill of Rights,

Roy Callahan

Oh wow. There's absolutely nothing to add to this letter. It's what America needs to hear now. Today. While we still have a small chance of getting America back from the ugly machine of the corrupt D.C. complex.

Says up top, Callahan is a retired swabbie not a jarhead. I respect both equally but my experience is that they don't like being mistaken for one another. Might want your headline writer to know that.
