An open letter to Congress forwarded to our representatives

To the editor:

We seek your support for ensuring thorough investigations are made into the IRS and NSA scandals. We’ve been warned by our founding fathers that a large government is an oppressive government and we feel that we’re starting to see this come to fruition.

From our view it seems that these agencies were clearly used for political purposes and have violated our freedoms as Americans.

We are a unique nation of the world for the experiment put forth in a constitutional republic that guarantees freedoms for the individual against the tyranny and corruption of an overpowering government.

Please ensure we stand our ground and defend our freedoms. Investigate these illegal practices thoroughly and ensure full prosecution of the violators.

Jonathan E. Varnell
