I don't think changing presidents did us any good. He is not running the show anyway. The people that got us into all this trouble with the banks and housing loans and stock market are still in power and making it even worse.
We need to get them out of there. I would like to see term limits of four years, six at the most, put on all senators, congressmen, and maybe governors.
Also on federal judges. This should be brought to a vote by American citizens.
I hope there is some way to get this on a ballot, so we could vote on it. Some of them have been in there as long as I can remember and that has been quite a while. Some of them belong in a rest home or some probably belong in jail.
As for the war, it was probably a good thing fighting the terrorists over there rather than over here.
As for Guantanamo Bay, those prisoners are treated better than a lot of American citizens. It should be a military decision. After all, these people want to kill us. My brother-in-law's brother was tortured, and he starved to death in a Japanese prison. So were a lot of other good Americans.
We all have loved ones who fought and died for our country. It would be a sad thing to see our country go into socialism or communism.
We owe it all to our fighting men. We have the best there is. I would suggest when you see a young man in one of our military uniforms, go up and shake his hand and let him know we appreciate him. They deserve the very best.
It's all about the power to control your life and everything we like to enjoy. I've even heard on the mainstream media that the government wants to control the meals we eat at the fast food places and in our schools.
We are Americans and love our kids, and grandkids and great-grandkids. We don't want them to have to pay for all our stupid mistakes.
