Letter: ‘Tear down that website’

To make my point regarding “Obummercare,” I was reminded of the title of a “far-off-Broadway” show that I saw in Los Angles many years ago, entitled “The Magic If.”

Today, this title appropriately emphasizes the absolute lack of representation that “we the people” have in regard to our overwhelming disapproval of the “Affordable Care Act” that has been dumped upon us by the wimps in Washington.

What “if” there was a “magic if” — If we had a person as courageous as one of the most respected leaders in the history of our country speak out on our behalf with conviction and dedication.

Back on June 12, 1987, President Ronald Reagan demanded of the Russian leader, “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!”

Isn’t there anyone in our nation with the influence, or authority, or courage, or conviction or just plain guts to inject the “magic if “ and tell Obama to “tear down that website!”

Too bad there isn’t “a magic if.”
