Letter to Barack Obama

I sent the following message to Barack Obama:

Dear President Obama,

Nothing in the Constitution -- the contract between We the People and the US Government -- the specification for the US Government -- gives you the authority to fire a CEO of a private enterprise: General Motors (or does GM stand for Government Motors now?).

We the People demand our liberty back! The liberty to succeed or fail based on our own ingenuity -- or lack of it. The US Government bailing out and nationalizing private businesses is not one of the enumerated powers in the US Constitution! We have well established procedures for dealing with business failure: Bankruptcy. The US automakers are bankrupt because of outdated committments to unions, oppressive government regulations, and failure to adapt to new competition and business models in the 1970s and 1980s. Bankruptcy would have sorted it all out.

Government, step back! Follow the Constitution! Power to the people!

Most Sincerely,
Karl A. Uppiano
