Letters to the Editor 10/7/12



Capt. F.E. “Jack” Morgan (retired)


Need change at the top

Dear Editor:

I understand that there are mindless drones, who will vote for President Obama again because they think he is “cool” or will give them more “free” stuff (paid for by hardworking taxpayers.) However, I can’t understand why hard-working people who love their children and grandchildren can vote for Obama, knowing what damage he has done as president.

These people would not re-hire a person to work on their house or car who had done a lousy job for them, yet they are willing to sacrifice the future of their children and grandchildren by voting for Obama because of black pride, or party loyalty.

President Obama has been in office nearly four years. Yet, he takes no responsibility for adding over $5 trillion dollars to the debt, and doing very little to improve the unemployment rate which has Increased to more than 8 percent since he has been president. He blames President Bush or Congress instead of his reckless spending and job-killing policies.

President Obama has delivered no “hope,” and the “change” he has delivered is destroying our economy, health care system, the defense of our county, and our freedoms. By executive order and the misuse of regulatory agencies, Obama has ignored Congress and mandated unconstitutional policies, which will fundamentally change our country into a country unlike the America we know and love.

We have a chance to give ourselves hope and change this November by voting President Obama out of office. If we fail to do that, we have no one to blame but ourselves.
