Pleasing Everyone--well, almost...

Dear Madame Corinne Wood:

I have visited your web site and viewed the list of groups one could join: .

You have covered all sides of the political spectrum: there are “Fiscal Conservatives for Wood” and “Democrats for Wood”, “Independents for Wood”, so only Libertarians are missing.

The list really gives a broad choice: there are "Pro-Life voters for Wood" and "Pro-choice voters for Wood", so it is totally impossible to understand whether you are pro-life or pro-choice, fiscal conservative, or Democrat, or do not have your own position, and just trying to get votes from all sides.

The choice of nationalities is also very broad: There are "Germans for Wood", "Greeks for Wood", Irish, Italian, Indians, Norwegians, Swedes, and Slovaks. I did not find "Russians for Wood", but I am not sure why Russians would vote for Wood, they have President Vladimir Putin. Maybe you meant German Americans, Greek Americans, etc?

The choice of Americans of different heritage is also broad: there are "African-Americans for Wood", "Arab-Americans for Wood", "Asian-Americans for Wood", "Croatian-Americans for Wood", "Polish-Americans for Wood", but there are no "Americans for Wood", which I thought is really a big group in Illinois.

I have an impression that your web site discriminates on a base of gender: there are "Moms for Wood" but no "Dads for Wood". Also I am not sure if I were female and an attorney, should I sign for "Women Lawyers for Wood" or just "Lawyers for Wood"? Is a woman lawyer not a lawyer?

The choice of professions is also very strong: from “Bankers for Wood” to “Bikers for Wood”. I was especially impressed with “Firefighters for Wood”. Unfortunately there is one group I was specifically interested in: the "Group to Restore the Second Amendment and Respect the Constitution", or the "People for the Right to Self-Defense from criminals and terrorists for Wood", which I would be happy to join, but could not find.

There is, however, on the very top of the list is the “Anti-Gun Violence Supporters”. I am not sure about the meaning of this term. Recently one of the activists of the Million Moms March was convicted for shooting and seriously injuring a totally innocent man. She is surely “Anti-Gun” and at the same time “Violence Supporter”. There is no way I am going to join that group.

The only group I surely belong to is “Men for Wood”, but I am not sure what are you going to do for this special interest group. Unfortunately, I was not able to find a group suitable for me, therefore I am not able to support you at this time.

No one can read our Constitution without concluding that the people who wrote it wanted their government severely limited; the words "no" and "not" employed in restraint of government power occur 24 times in the first seven articles of the Constitution and 22 more times in the Bill of Rights.
