Mr. Goode, I know you are unlikely to read my comments, but I post them here so that you and others may read them. If you do happen to read my views, please understand that I do not support the hyperbolic statements such as those you made in your speech during the US House debate about increasing the number of US troops for the war in Iraq. You have the right to make statements such as these, and I have the right—indeed, the responsibility—to let you know that I disagree. Your statements misrepresent me.
When the commentary begins in the Middle East, in no way do I want to comfort and encourage the radical Muslims who want to destroy our country and who want to wipe the so-called infidels like myself and many of you from the face of the Earth. In no way do I want to aid and assist the Islamic jihadists who want the crescent and star to wave over the Capitol of the United States and over the White House of this country. I fear that radical Muslims who want to control the Middle East and ultimately the world would love to see “In God We Trust” stricken from our money and replaced with “In Muhammad We Trust.”
I wish to distance myself from your representation. When you speak, please remember that you do not speak for your constituent, John Lloyd.
