"Do you want four more years of this governor?" (LTTE re Susana Martinez)

Editor:

As a moderate political activist and observer, I am writing to the citizens of the Sandoval County and the citizens of New Mexico to point out the erroneous statements being made in the race for New Mexico governor by the Republican candidate.

As a student in grade school, I learned to never take a statement at face value but to look beyond the statement to supporting information supporting that statement.

Topics in the Republican candidates’ messages not only distort the truth, but have no basis when analyzed using available information.

I ask all New Mexican citizens to look beyond the lies and innuendos and seek the truth behind items being discussed in the current race for governor of New Mexico.

Nowadays, those gullible fools get elected into office as Republicans.

I think many of the religious politicians actually do believe that
they DO believe in their religion -- which they have of course
twisted in the name of JC to suit their ambitions. Believing that
they believe that Jesus wants it this way. Fear of Hell is in
the mix too.

hmm.. that could be a problem. unless the immune system is already primed to

spot bad intruders before they make themselves at home.

I've always believed in those spontaneously-generating little
armies -- vast but little -- inside our bodies. Keeping the
homeland safe from illness.

Maybe a mix of both: an automatic assumption about the man, made at an unconscious level,

leads to paying him less attention, spending less time, listening
less closely, and this is not at all a leap. This is systemic
racism/classism, not overtly discriminatory but built in.

Poor, black, probably uninsured, maybe poor English, person
is unimportant in the big greedy scheme, and that's the way
it is. Somebody who doesn't matter very much, by habit
of society.

The day after we euthanized him, two ladies showed up with a poster.

They were babysitting the cat long term for someone else.
They said he had been fine just a week ago.
That's nonsense. He was coming to my house for weeks
clearly sick and starving.
They said WHY DIDN'T YOU ASK AROUND THE NEIGHBORHOOD?
They live almost directly across the street from me.

This kitty would show up only every few days, so I assumed
he was eating and/or living elsewhere. After a while, I
believed he was a stray. Because each time he showed up
at my house he was thinner and sicker than before. At
the end he weighed under a pound. Little furry bones, r.i.p.

I ask, how could you not know he was sick and starving,
such that he collapsed in my house?

A day later, one of my own kitties did not come home. Now
it's been a week. I have been crying almost non stop for
two weeks, exhausting. Thanks for listening
