    A serious comment by Bill Lear (Lear Jet)

    Most Americans are aware of Bill Lear, because of his Lear Jet business;
    however, he has accomplished much more, as you can see from this.

    William P. Lear -- Britannica Online Encyclopedia. His opinions are
    worth a read.

    Bill Lear lives in Port Orange Fl.

    A serious comment by Bill Lear (Lear Jet)

    Subject: Straight talk for Republicans and Democrats.

    A Humble Plea to McCain and Obama Supporters:

    Dear friends,

    I am truly astonished by the ignorance Obama supporters have displayed in
    their quest to get someone - ANYONE - into the White House. Now, wait a
    minute. I can well understand your dislike or even hatred of our clown,
    GWB, but he is not the root cause of all of our problems. Our Congress
    is. And a change there would be welcomed by all. You ain't gonna get it
    done with Obama. You gotta fire the whole damnable crooked Congress.
    (Read my book, "BERNIE'S WAR!").

    Perhaps I'm looking at all of this from a different perspective than you
    because my life experiences have been so different from yours. I'm
    80-years old and have traveled the world where I've seen a great deal. I
    spent five years on active duty as a fighter pilot in the USAF and
    another seven years flying with the Air National Guard in California and
    Texas as well as a few years flying in the USAF Reserve. I spent three
    years on active duty in Germany flying Czech border patrol with "cold
    guns" in aircraft inferior to the MIG during the Korean "Police Action"
    when it was thought that Korea was a diversion for a Soviet invasion of
    Western Europe.

    I lived abroad for a total of 28 years. Three years in Germany, twenty
    years in Switzerland and five years in Great Britain where I was based
    doing "spook" work for the U.S. behind the Iron Curtain before it fell.
    During that era of the Cold War I ventured to Moscow, Prague, Warsaw,
    Bucharest, Peshawar, Pakistan and Bulgaria posing as a Swiss
    French-speaking arms dealer purchasing weapons we surreptitiously
    supplied to the Afghani Mujahedeen in their successful fight against the
    Soviets - all of which came back to haunt us. I've been there and done
    that and have had close associations with top government people in
    Germany, the Netherlands and Great Britain. I've had more foreign affair
    experience than Obama could ever dream of and, yet, wouldn't have the
    temerity to deign myself "Presidential" material; although I feel
    eminently more qualified to judge who would NOT be best for our country.
    My long-time world experience should count for something in my plea to
    you to abandon this miscreant flake. You will only be doing yourself and
    our country an enormous disservice if you persist in your support of this
    flash-in-the-pan opportunist. On this, you MUST trust me.

    I've associated closely with European royalty and African politicians.
    I've traveled to the Far East to observe their cultures. My point is that
    Obama, although formally well educated and a brilliant orator, is a
    neophyte when it comes to understanding the world and is uniquely
    unqualified for the job as President of these great United States. His
    knowledge of economics is nil and his tax proposals absurd and
    life-threatening to the U.S. not only in economic terms but in preserving
    our national security as well. I don't want a "citizen of the world" to
    be President, I want a citizen of the good old USA to be President.

    Screw the rest of the world as they have well and truly screwed us. The
    time has come for us to awaken and start looking after ourselves. Now
    THAT would be CHANGE if that's what you're looking for.

    While McCain has abstained from playing "the race-card", Obama is
    playing it to the hilt even though he's technically not an
    African-American. To qualify for this distinction you must be at least
    one-sixth black. Obama is only one-eighth. His father would be, as he
    was one-sixth. No, Obama is more Muslim than black yet he trades on his

    The larger question I have about him is that we really don't know much
    about him other than what HE tells us, what we read on blogs and from
    some serious non-partisan investigators whose factual reports are,
    unfortunately, generally ignored and which receive precious little media

    I, as a registered Independent, a military veteran and a patriot, beseech
    you to put aside party considerations and vote for the lesser of the two
    evils. Yes, I am NOT a McCain supporter, but he is, at least, not a
    flake, doesn't carry Muslim baggage and is a PROVEN hero and patriot WITH
    experience. It's not a party issue. It's all about electing the best we
    can trust with what we've got to work with. Mr. Obama is NOT that guy.

    Please, please rethink your voting position. Thanks for reading my
    innermost thoughts. I care about all of you, but I care more about our
    country. Please help me to do both.

    William P. (Bill) Lear, Jr.

    Thanks, Joe. Great letter and right on as well!

    One question however. Do you think that anyone will listen? I think not! People do not know or respect history and their ignorance condemns them (and us) to repeat avoidable errors. Jefferson (the President, not the dry cleaner) said it best - "The masses are asses". And the asses may elect Obama and condemn the rest of us and our country to oblivion!

    Tell everyone you know. every convert helps. Almost everyone thinks it won't make a difference it will. If you were to take out the effct of the media Mccain would win by a landslide. Lots of people don't watch telivision and they dont get polled and guess who there voting for. We will win.
