To the Editor,

This is in response to recent letter from a candidate for U.S. Rep. of District Six.

Yes Sir, I am still a free American. I still have the freedom to read what you wrote. I still have the freedom to disagree with it. I still have the freedom to stand tall in my own opinion, not cower in the fear provided by yours.

I still have the freedom to question why I should vote for you. I still have the freedom to ask what it is that you will do as my Representative that will benefit the district. I still have the freedom to see your election as just placing a different link in the chain of congressional stagnation that keeps this nation from progressing. I still have the freedom to believe that what you write is designed to spread fear just to get elected. I still have the freedom to wonder why you are running on what Joe Barton has done and is doing instead of running on your own merits. I still have the freedom to debunk the notion that I need you as a savior to protect me from my government and to determine what my freedom is. I still have the freedom to do that for myself.

I still have the freedom to write this. I still have the freedom to believe that this is still the best  time to live in the best country ever. I still have the freedom to vote for a qualified Representative that epitomizes what is good and is the best about our district and that has vision beyond a single issue. I still have the freedom, sir, to conclude that is not you.

Always a free American.

Alan Fox,
