Say it Isn’t So, Joe: Lieberman May Join GOP Senate Caucus

    A letter to Harry Reid
    You know whats really bad for AMERICA. You and your goons. You all claim to be for the people but with what you are doing to Sen. Joe Lieberman is a shame. We have the right to free speech, we have the right to choose who we support and the right to do so with no punishment from the government . As granted by the Constitution. If there is only one party in control then you have ether a dictatorship or a monarchy. Ether way is NOT THIS COUNTRY. It is WE the People not we the democrats. You all seem to forget you arethere to serve us the American Public at the request by us by way of election. Not by or for any other reason . If you and your party think that you will herd us like sheep you are sadly mistaken. In two years you will ether do the job right or by the power of the vote you will find yourselvesvoted out of office. I am voicing my right to free speech as toyou and your party That is guaranteed by the Constitution of The UnitedStates of America. And if you dont like it take the advice of one of your supporters Martha Stewart and SUCK IT UP.
