An Open Letter to Michael Moore by Philip A. Farruggio (via Dandelion Salad)

Last night they mentioned the ( so called ) Health Care reform bill. What reform? It was, from day one, a sellout to the private insurers and the health care industry. Goodness Michael, you said so in both of your last two films. Obama received 21 million to McCain’s 7 + million in donations from the health care industry, yet you supported Obama? We had a Green Party candidate that agrees with you most likely 99% , plus we had a candidate named Nader…. Remember him? You worked tirelessly for Ralph in 2000, as did yours truly… And I live in Florida!

It is time to LET GO OF THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY! I sat last night and watched you and John Nichols with Laura Flanders and Amy Goodman. The election results were streaming in trumpeting a bloodbath for the Democrats. I sat forward in my chair, awaiting the truth of it a … Read More
