Our government has a different agenda than the people

Michael and Lorraine MillerSilverthorne

Re: Confusion is expected in tragedies (SDN Sept. 14)There are many reasons why Americans today, should not expect their government to take care of them during a natural disaster. Those reasons can be summed up as “the Bush Administration.” Our government has a different agenda than the agenda of the governed, the people of this country. Instead of focusing on our unalienable right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, our government is waging war on the other side of the globe, based on outright lies; allowing corporate profiteering from the war; gutting environmental laws and ignoring global warming (which will cause more severe weather); jettisoning those pesky retirement plans; giving tax cuts to the wealthiest Americans and allowing more corporate control of our government.I guess it’s a Republican Party thing.We can, however, be thankful for the People all over the nation who are donating cash, goods and helping in countless ways to those Katrina victims who are in desperate need.
