To the editor:
For those who haven't been keeping up with Sen. Obama's rare appearances at his day job in the Senate, he proposed the Global Poverty Act, which would cost the American taxpayer $845 billion during the next 10 years. After which, I assume American taxpayers will need a Poverty Act to bail us out of the poor house after paying for all of this. But wait. He claims he'll only tax those nasty rich people for all of this. Folks, there aren't enough wealthy people in the entire Western Hemisphere to pay for all of this. Bill Clinton promised a middle class tax cut in 1992. The confetti hadn't been swept up yet from the inaugural balls when Clinton declared that things were much worse than he thought and the middle class would have to pony up for his spending increases. Can you spell dejÃ vu?
Obama was asked at a recent debate if would cut back on any of his proposed spending in light of the current economic situation. He couldn't come up with a single thing. I can tell you one area he plans on deep cuts, but I think he'd rather the public didn't know about it. He plans on deep cuts in our military and defense system. The world has never been as dangerous as it is right now, with America-hating lunatics in charge of countries possessing nuclear weapons. And he wants to cut defense spending? If you don't believe me, you can go to youtube.com and enter Barack Obama/defense spending and hear him say this himself.
And I haven't even gotten started on his wealth redistribution plan, or the $800,000 his campaign has given to voter fraud group, Acorn, or his wife saying the souls of Americans are sick, but Obama will heal our souls. Perhaps that is why Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan has called Obama "the Messiah." Yeah, that's not scary at all, is it? My soul is just fine, thanks.
I'd appreciate him keeping his hands off my soul, as well as out of my wallet.
Change? Oh, he'll change America all right. Vote for Sen. Obama at your own risk.
