Charlie Daniels: A Man I'd Like to Meet

The Bull from The Bull Speaks stopped by overnight, so I went and visited him this morning. There he posted about that SOB country singer/songwriter, "Devil Went Down to Georgia", hilljack, Charlie Daniels.

I wish we had more like him.

Mr. Daniels has a website and on the forum section has posted an open letter to Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi....

An Open Letter to Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi

Dear Sir and Madam,

You have said often enough that you don't believe in the war in Iraq and
that you want to bring the troops home. Yet all you do is talk and sign
non-binding resolutions which only goes to show that you really don't mean
what you say about ending the war or that you're just playing political
games and in doing so giving aid and comfort to a dedicated enemy.

Now if you're serious about ending the war you have the means and the votes to do just that. Simply cut off the funding for the troops, bring them all home and the American people can transfer the deed to this war and the
ramifications of what you do to the Democrat party and you can live with the results.

You say you support the troops, but that has to be a lie. If you supported
them and you truly think the war is wrong, you'd bring them home or either
dispense with the poisonous rhetoric and get in behind them and help them
get the job done.

You can't have it both ways. If you support the troops do something. Your
party won a majority in both houses, so you have control so take the

Of course, I think you should remember that when the terrorists follow us
home from Iraq and start their attacks on American soil it's too late, so
you'd better have a plan to deal with it. Do you have a plan?

And if Iran goes into Iraq and makes it a staging ground for Al Qaida to
plan and carry out attacks all over the western world you'll need to deal
with that. Do you have a plan?

And if Iran decides to go into Kuwait and cut off the oil flow from the
Persian Gulf, you'll need a way to make up for the shortfall. Do you have a

The world would look at us as a country that has not finished a commitment to war since 1945. Do you have a plan for dealing with that?

The purpose of this letter is to call your bluff. I don't believe you have
the guts to do anything but talk and talk is cheap. Oh you have no shortage of words but I seriously doubt the amount of backbone you have.

Do you really think that signing a non binding resolution is really fooling
anybody into thinking you're anything less than career politicians trying to tip the scales of the O08 Presidential Election.

What you're doing is silly and dangerous. If you really don't like what's
going on, change it, do something about it. You've got the power but have
you got the guts?

Pray for our troops.

What do you think?

God Bless America

We all need to do our part and contact our Congressman and Senators... we need to let them know what we think.... need to keep the pressure on... make it part of the weekly routine, ya know?

Again, we need more patriotic men like Charlie Daniels. God bless him, God Bless America.
