To Whom it May Concern,
My name is Kevin Marshall, and I have some very serious problems with your ideas about defense and security. I find them not just inappropriate and unsustainable, but potentially damaging due to the negative influence they may have on our country. You present concepts and ideas that on the surface appear harmless, but the framework and structure are dangerous. If we were to adopt the ideas you present for security and protection, we’d be doomed to failure on the defense front; that is, if we even made it past the point of financial ruin this program would place us in.
Firstly, we need to address the idea of constructing giant mechanical replicas of lions.
I understand the iconography behind the concept. Lions are strong, proud, and violent creatures. Surely an opponent would be fearful if they saw a giant metal one careening towards them. However, once the initial shock wore off, they quickly realized what everyone but apparently you do: that mechanical lions are a profoundly stupid idea. Why not just have something on wheels? Ideally, a lion that can move as fast as an automobile would have a greater turning radius and agility, but not when limitations are placed on it via lack of flexibility provided by metal, nuts, and bolts.
And they fly?! Why bother making them lions then? Lions do not fly. I know this because the Bible tells me so.
Perhaps most ridiculous of all, however, is the idea of combining all of these lions to make a gigantic man-shaped robot.
I have no argument against this as far as using a gigantic robot man to fight giant space creatures. It’s only natural, since if we’re going to battle these creatures we’re going to need arms and legs in order to grapple and apply jiu-jitsu holds on them. I have to ask, though, why not make a gigantic robot man? It just seems like a waste of valuable time and resources to make all of these separate components that function independently and combine to make this “Voltron.”
Also, I find the idea of five different pilots controlling one giant robot man to be very socialist and un-American.
In closing, I encourage you to please address these concerns at your earliest convenience and stop trying to poison our well with robot lions and your giant socialist robot man.
