I am outraged that you supported and voted for the latest stimulus bill before Congress. It constitutes theft on a grand scale. Given the fact that all of the money is fiat, you have indebted future generations before they are even conceived. It is a convenient way for members of the Senate and the House to pay their debt to lobbyists and to their corporate donors, not out of their own pockets but out of the very future of those Americans as yet unborn.
This stimulus package, along with its antecedents, constitutes the greatest wealth transfer in history: from Main Street to Wall Street, the greatest ponzi scheme in history; from the struggling middle class to the oligarchs who are already billionaires; and from the American people to aliens at home and abroad.
It engenders a corruption which seeps into our souls and corrupts individuals, institutions and every level of government.
I, quite frankly, do not believe that you lack discernment: you know very well what I have laid out supra. You and your colleagues in the Senate and in the House do, however, lack integrity. It is quite obvious that your allegiance is not to the people of Louisiana but to the lobbyists, your corporate donors and to the Republican Party of Mitt Romney, John McCain and the Rockefellers.
For thinking Americans, and there are millions of us, this stimulus package and its antecedents, coming in the context of a fraudulent election, have swept away all of the pretenses: America is not a republic; America is not a democracy; America is not a we-the-people entity; America is not an exceptional nation; America is not an indispensable nation; America is not a “city on a hill;” America is not a nation of law; in America, legal votes do not count and illegal votes do.
I will not be voting for you or your colleagues in any future election, assuming that there will be future elections. You, of course, will likely not take this letter seriously, even if you see it. It is a mere gnat buzzing in the ear of a braying jackass.
Pray for you I will. My prayer is that you will repent of the evil which you have done to generations of Americans, but particularly to those of Louisiana who are your only moral and legal constituency.

Mr Peters, we share quite the same opinions of our respective legislators, yours in Louisiana, mine in Mississippi. I have occasionally entertained the possibility of running against one of the big-spending Republicans in Mississippi, but in the unlikely event I won, I would have to go to that putrid city which is home to the gargantuan memorial of the tyrant and war criminal who invaded the CSA in 1861, and I simply cannot do that.

Dr. Peters , my question to you may be off topic, but what do you think of those people who praise Dr. King as some anti-statist hero since he opposed vietnam and was under surveilence by the gorvernment

Unlike many modern "Conservatives," I do nt worship at the idol of Dr. King because those of us who were aware at the time of his activism knew that there was very little genuine about him. He stance on the Vietnam War did not seem rooted in a genuine concern about bad or misguided policy which got us and sustained us in the war; but rather appeared to be anti-American in the vein of Jane Fonda.

We Southerners have done nothing to secure our independence from the union since we lost a war in 1865. We go along with their dirty programs. Right now as I type these words thousands of Southerners are in D.C. screaming for Trump, to what purpose? White Southerners need to be slapped in the face real hard. I hope that is about to happen. The sooner we understand that we are Red Headed Stepchildren in this union, then we may be able to organize help ourselves

Good afternoon. This is off-topic as well but I had no way to comment on your "front porch" piece about Pollock. We lived there from 1929 to about 1984 after having spent a field season doing archaeological investigations on Little River. The old Stewart house was for sale and cheap and we decided to buy it and relocate from New Orleans. We still have friends there. I really enjoyed your article. .

Robert Peters was born in the town of Natchitoches, Louisiana, the oldest settlement in the Louisiana Purchase Territory. He was, however, reared in the Republic of Pollock situated in the eastern march of Grant Parish, carved out of Winn Parish and Rapides Parish for the purposes of looting by carpetbaggers, a fact betrayed by the name.
