Never too early for re-election rules

Dear Editor:

Obama is a failed leader and his Democratic leaders Pelosi and Reid and their cohorts are going to destroy this nation. The Iranians are financing any group sympathetic to them or antagonistic to the United States. The Israelis have their fingers hovering over the button, and the few stable Muslim governments are using back channels to urge U.S. military action. As hopeless as the Middle East is, sub-Saharan Africa is seen as ten times worse.

This country is on life support and the energy coming from the Middle East is our blood supply. Without it our country dies. What if we let Iran get a nuclear weapon?  There won’t be any way for us to combat their influence in the Middle East. We’ll end up in a groveling contest with the rest of the world to see who gets the chance to spend the rest of their lives kissing Persia’s rear.

Our military is being gutted and border patrol’s getting its budget cut to provide Obama more funds to spend on unnecessary programs like giving benefits to illegal immigrants. Most people don’t understand that Obama demands another tax increase before further spending cuts. He wants to collect taxes from the people who are willing to work, so the politicians can turn around and “redistribute” that money to the people who couldn’t, or more often, won’t work, the ones who keep voting Obama and his cohorts into office.

The average American is a hero. It’s heroic to get up in the morning and go about your business, do your job, and take care of your family, when all the while you’re being belittled by the elitists and crushed by a tax burden that you’ll never get out from under. Obama’s people will use any means to grab more power while none of them care how badly the average Americans are hurting. When is the taxpaying public going to resist and emphatically state “no more”?

The government also wants to violate your Second Amendment rights and take away guns from its law abiding citizens while letting urban gun related crime continue unchecked.  Why no mandatory minimum heavy penalties for illegally carrying a concealed weapon or using ones in committing a crime and no stop, question, and frisk law? The urban gang problem is unresolved because they belong to Obama’s voting base.

Let’s make it clear, no re-election for gun grabbing, spendthrift politicians.
