Dear Senator Santorum,

With all due respect for your selfless service and devotion to the country in the senate, are you insane? Do you really think that a citizen who puts your bumper sticker on their car is akin to putting on a uniform and serving in the military to fight a war that you voted for and support while our troops are being stretched too thin? Well of course you do, but I don't. Even if you asked people to put a "Support Our Troops" ribbon on their car rather than put on a uniform, I'd still think you were crazy (with all due respect, of course). You can never have enough troops in a country like ours. How can we possibly have more wars without troops? Does anyone even think of that while war planning is going on?

The only way to get rid of terrorists as the vice president has recently mentioned is to destroy them. I hardly believe that donning a Santorum sticker on one's car has anything to do with supporting the war effort.

At this point, all senators should be urging their constituents to risk dying for their country in the middle east, as that is the noblest profession other than CEO or lobbyist, even though our troops are not getting the proper equipment, to fight our enemies abroad. Why even Prince Harry may fight in Iraq! Who wouldn't want to fight along his side?

We should declare war on countries that we can pillage for resources to pay off the national debt before we invade another sovereign nation. Before the corporate war profiteers get their share, our government ought to take a big chunk to pay off debt otherwise people may start to think we live in a fascist dictatorship and we wouldn't want that to happen.

Have you figured out another way to finance the wars? I suppose our children and grandchildren could pay for them if they don't move away to avoid paying high taxes. Or maybe they will have to move to China to pay off the national debt working in sweat shops. I believe you ought to address these issues. The rich folks still need their flunkies. You can't be driving them away, now can you?

Furthermore, why not funnel some of your campaign contributions towards those troops from Pennsylvania who enlisted to ensure that they get plenty of armor, lots of bullets and clean water so that they can come home safely, perhaps in one piece and keep voting for you?

Love
Liz
