Vote to save country

Dear Editor:


Jim Wahl’s letter to the editor in last Sunday’s paper was outstanding. Obama doesn’t respect people who run small businesses because he doesn’t understand the free market system. He has never been exposed to it. He tolerates large business owners if they give him money.

Everything has always been given to him. He never had to earn anything. His supporters like to criticize Ann Romney for being a stay at home mom, but Obama is the one who never worked a day in his life. He has never held a real job. He has never run a business. He has no idea what this countries’ system is all about.

The Chicago machine got him elected to the Senate. Obama feels entitled to everything he gets without working for it. In his world, everything just comes to him free. Being a classic narcissist, he sees nothing strange about his good fortune. The world rotates around him.

How could the citizens of this country elect someone who has no experience and has contempt of our way of life? Now that we realize he is ruining our country, how can he be reelected? I’m afraid the answer is simple. His supporters are not paying attention and vote for him because he is “cool.”

People in other parts of the country like to say we Southerners are dumb. We are not dumb enough to vote for a person who will destroy our way of life. The people on the east and west coasts are the dumb ones. If they were smart, they would live in the South and would vote to save our country.

Sincerely,

Bruce Wilson
