Make us rich

Dear Editor:

The boots are on the ground. The long march has been going on for a long time.

There is no turning back from acknowledging that there are many in Aspen and the rest of Pitkin County who can agree with me in what I currently confront the Aspen City Council and its various uncaring backers with: “The Aspen oligarchs and the Aspen political system are dysfunctional in their socioeconomic obligations to yearly produce many millionaires and duplicate what has happened in Silicon Valley and the rest of America for decades.”

With all the boasting of wealth and conspicuous consumption that the Aspen political-economic cronies loudly crow about, they sure keep American Aspenites poor and miserable working two and three jobs to eke out a living. What a cruel game and con game to foster.

We proud American Aspenites are not chumps and deserve better in our daily lives with sincere appropriate chances to make the big money and keep it for their greater financial independence and security.

I suggest my fellow Aspen Americans be inspired by Vince Lombardi and make the winning goal by not taking disrespect and no for answers to their money dreams and efforts to be truly affluent.

Remember, we Americans are not cowards! Keep the pressure on the Aspen oligarchs and the Aspen City Council to be fair with us and do what they are supposed to do: annually produce at least 15 to 20 American millionaires and not add to the riches of the so-called smug trust-funders who hold others back from their happiness, riches and successes in Aspen and Pitkin County.

As I already declared: The boots are on the ground!
