I respectfully decline your invitations. I have been declining them for a few months. I cannot comfortably associate with someone who is not addressing corruption in a vigorous way.
I do understand you must choose your battles.
In addition, if I had to choose between whistleblowers and health care for a nation. I would choose health care. I realize that unless health care becomes detached from corporate employment that people, including potential whistleblowers of corporate crimes, are strongly motivated to tow the corporate line. I also understand the human toll of not having heath care as a nation.
Nevertheless, I have health care. I had to choose between health and wealth in 2002. And with such, I am less desperate for heath care. And thus I am dedicated to the cause of addressing corruption in government, contractors, conglomerates, and the likes.
Thus I respectfully decline associations with you due to my position and your unfortunate position of choice. I do not stand against you, but I cannot stand with you.
Thank you for selecting me as one of the first groups to be added to your G+ circles. Thank you for the opportunity to serve as part of the Rural Obama team. Thank you for your alliance. Thank you for your service.
I wish you well and I hope I can be of service to you again one day.
Until that day, God spede.
