Another Letter (e-mail) Sent to My Senators

Dear Senator,

My wife and I both called to urge you to vote against the so called "bailout" bill. According to news media reports, you voted for it.

Since you are a republican, and a professed conservative, this has shocked and dismayed me since it seems to imply that you do not believe in maintaining a "free market" but rather are in favor of government intervention and meddling in the free market - which destroys the freedom of the market. I never expected such from you.

If you or some of your staff have the time, I would appreciate an explanation of what you were thinking when you voted for what conservatives perceive as rank "socialism," and the 5th plank in Karl Marx's steps towards communism.
