Letter opinion based on unsupported statements

Sadly, Norm Benson, you may have convinced yourself that your stance is not based on prejudice, or race. You may have convinced yourself, but not me.

How else could you explain your ignorant and unsubstantiated comments against Barack Obama? I’m all for everyone having their own opinion, but not one based on false statements, and unsupported evidence. I had worked on an entirely different response to your letter that discredited your entire argument. However, I realized the journey I have been on in the last month was too important to ignore.

It wasn’t long ago I knew how I felt, but didn’t know the facts, or the issues very well at all. Then, one day I was unable to defend my own thoughts, and my life has forever been changed. I have decided it is up to the people of this county, this state, this country to find the answers for themselves, or they will never truly be invested in their own opinion. To those who want to know the issues, know the facts, know what they are choosing, I strongly recommend you check out non-partisan websites such as http://www.factcheck.org. There you can read the evidence for yourself on issues such as environment, gun control, and our biggest concern today, the economy.

Go there, teach yourself, and you will truly grow because of it. I know this, because I have.
