In God we must trust

Dear Editor:

This nation was founded as “One Nation Under God” also “In God We Trust.” It has since now become “One Nation under Corruption” and “In Money and Greed We Trust.”

Since watching the news media, I feel so sorry for some billionaires, also the multimillionaires, politicians and others that seem to want to destroy the middle class and poor. They have a super brainwashing media program where they blame the poor and liberals for all of the problems, while they get richer and richer.

As for liberals, people need to read the dictionary and get the definition of liberal.

If you would like to know what God thinks about liberals, look in the Bible as it is mentioned seven times and God thinks liberal is good, also you are considered vile if you denounce the liberals.

Many of our politicians claim to be Christians but do not attempt to follow the teachings of the Bible and probably do not read or study God’s word. They want to be re-elected so bad they do not care what misery they may cause the middle class or poor.

I don’t believe they realize what awaits them after they pass away. Sad but true, many of the middle class, also Christians, will vote for these politicians and will probably suffer the wonderful fate of bondage.

I might suggest that everyone get a Bible and read 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 as it may be very beneficial in your afterlife.
