Grandpa - Priceless!

Looks like this letter will be sent to many grandchildren...

John G. is 63 years old and owns a small business. He's a life-long Republican and sees his dream of retiring next year has all but evaporated. With new taxes coming his way, John assumes now that he will work to his dying day.

John has a granddaughter. Ashley is a recent college grad. She drives a flashy hybrid car, wears all the latest fashions, and loves to go out to nightclubs and restaurants. Ashley campaigned hard for Barack Obama. After the election she made sure her grandfather (and all other Republican family members) received a big I told-you-so earful on how the world is going to be a much better place now that her party is taking over.

Having lost both roommates, Ashley recently ran short of cash and cannot pay the rent (again) on her 3 bedroom townhouse... Like she has done many times in the past, she e-mailed her grandfather asking for some financial help.

Here is his reply:

Sweetheart, I received your request for assistance.   Ashley, you know I love you dearly and I'm sympathetic to your financial plight. Unfortunately, times have changed.  With the election of President Obama, your grandmother and I have had to set forth a bold new economic plan of our own...."The Ashley Economic Empowerment Plan."  Let me explain.
Your grandmother and I are life-long, wage-earning tax payers. We have lived a comfortable life, as you know, but we have never had the fancier things like European vacations, luxury cars, etc...  We have worked hard and were looking forward to retiring soon.  But the plan has changed. Your president is raising our personal and business taxes significantly.  He says it is so he can give our hard earned money to other people... Do you know what this means, Ashley?  It means less for us, and we must cut back on many business and personal expenses.
You know the wonderful receptionist who worked in my office for more than 23 years? The one who always gave you candy when you came over to visit? I had to let her go last week. I can't afford to pay her salary and all of the government mandated taxes that go with having employees.... Your grandmother will now work 4 days a week to answer phones, take orders and handle the books.  We will be closed on Fridays and will lose even more income.
I'm also very sorry to report that your cousin Frank will no longer be working summers in the warehouse. I called him at school this morning.  He already knows about it and he's upset because he will have to give up skydiving and his yearly trip to Greenland to survey the polar bears.
That's just the business side of things. Some personal economic effects of Obama's new taxation policies include none other than you. You know very well that over the years your grandmother and I have given you thousands of dollars in cash, tuition assistance, food, housing, clothing, gifts, etc., etc.  But by your vote, you have chosen to help others -- not at your expense -- but at our expense.
If you need money now sweetheart, I recommend you call   202-456-1111  202-456-1111   202-456-1111 202-456-1111 . That is the direct phone number for the White House.. You can also contact the White House here:;...

You yourself told me how foolish it is to vote Republican... You said Mr. Obama is going to be the People's President, and is going to help every American live a better life. Based on everything you've told me, along with all the promises we heard during the campaign, I'm sure Mr. Obama will be happy to transfer some stimulus money into your bank account. Have him call me for the account number which I memorized years ago.

Perhaps you can now understand what I've been saying all my life: Those who vote for a president should consider the impact on the nation as a whole, and not be just concerned with what they can get for themselves.  What Obama supporters don't seem to realize is all of the money he is redistributing to illegal aliens and non-taxpaying Americans (the so-called "less fortunate") comes from tax-paying families.
Remember how you told me, "Only the richest of the rich will be affected"? Well guess what, honey?  Because we own a business, your grandmother and I are now considered to be the richest of the rich.  On paper, it might look that way, but in the real world, we are far from it..
As you said while campaigning for Obama, some people will have to carry more of the burden so all of America can prosper... You understand what that means, right?  It means that raising taxes on productive people results in them having less money; less money for everything, including granddaughters.
I'm sorry, Ashley, but the well has run dry. The free lunches are over... I have no money to give you now. So, congratulations on your choice for "change." For future reference, I encourage you to try and add up the total value of the gifts and cash you have received from us, just since you went off to college, and compare it to what you expect to get from Mr. Obama over the next 4 (or 8) years. I have not kept track of it, Ashley. It has all truly been the gift of our hearts.
Remember, we love you dearly.... but from now on you'll need to call the number mentioned above. Your "Savior" has the money we would have given to you. Just try and get it from him.
Good luck, sweetheart.
Love, Grandpa

Less complaining and more looking forward John. Too much bashing specifically Obama on this site.

Hilarious! At least the letter was sincere! Well I will say we got about one more month left (April) before big things start to happen. If not, then run for the hills (including mountains)!!!

Anonymous 11:30, Sorry John has hurt your feelings.If there is anyone in this country who needs bashing it is Obama.How anyone can run a country down as fast as he has and prances around the world like he is king does not deserve respect.Even though he is not legally our President,he makes his own rules and walks all over our rights.The latest thing that rots me is how the Supreme Court can let that Kagan woman help on the Obamacare hearing.The law specifically says that anyone who has had a hand in drafting something coming before the court must recuse his or herself.She had a lot of involvement in working for Obama on that bill! That is the attitude in Washington,just do what you want and disregard the laws of the land. Here's to stomping Obama out of power!!!

I would like to bash obama with something besides words, something much harder.

Ithink granpa was right. Our so called president is nothing but the most use less one we have ever had. He has done nothing but take our freedom away & put us in debt so bad we will never get out. WE need someone who cares about our constitution, the way it was written years ago,not how our so called president read it.

Not that votes count any more in the USA, but does this mean that you will vote for any Republican that the powers that be put forward?

Anger towards your enemies will bury you, man.
Heaven doesn't let in the vindictive no matter how "deserving" you think it is.
Leave judgement of others to God and God only.

Do people seriously think America wouldn't be where it is today if we had elected McCain instead? TWO SIDES OF THE SAME COIN, you people. The REAL enemies are the ones who backed both McCain and Obama; no matter who wins the election, they win as well. The presidents are just public mouthpieces for this shadow government.

Maybe the little details of the situation would be different, but we'd be just as screwed over if McCain were president. It annoys me to see such open-minded people (I'm assuming you have to be somewhat open-minded to wind up on a NESARA blog) trapped in the left vs. right thinking. Stop identifying with political parties. This problem runs much deeper than that.

You can blame Obama all you want, but quit thinking that Republicans aren't part of this system as well.

True source of our current “government” and economic challenges (unemployment, foreclosures, inflation, “national debt”, poverty, hunger) with a comprehensive Solution- Secret of Oz, an award-winning documentary by Bill Still on Youtube-- Enjoy. This gave me new insight on Yahshua's angry display in temple shortly before His crucifixion: His people suffering the abomination of "unjust weights and measures" by moneychangers...

John G - You still need to work because 8 years of GW broke the economy and you have fewer customers, who spend less. De-regulation and lower taxes didn't work - gee what a surprise the banks and big capital took advantage. You seem to be more concerned about maintaining your political beliefs, even with overwelming evidence that it is wrong - after all tax increases haven't happened yet - than helping your Granddaughter - perhaps she is better off.
