To the editor:
On this Memorial Day weekend, let us remember that we have one chance to save America — it's by voting Barack Obama out, along with the communist/socialists who have invaded the Democratic Party.
Nov. 6 will be the hinge on which the door of the future of our nation swings.
Already 51 percent of the people of the U.S. depend upon the extracted taxes of 49 percent. This equation has to be reversed if we are to survive.
Some of the 51 percent are absolutely necessary — the defense of our borders and the strength of our military to protect us from those who are determined to take us down in the name of their god, or in the name of the globalism of the United Nations.
This military protection is the first responsibility of federal government, according to our Constitution, and this they are not doing, and they want to do less. Defunding the military is criminal.
Our taxes have to pay our president and our Congress, but they do not have to vote themselves outrageous benefits and retirements not available to the rest of us.
They ought to meet three months of the year, as the Constitution says, then go home and live under the laws they made for us commoners.
People ought not to be paid for having babies out of wedlock.
People ought not to be paid for doing stupid studies that mean nothing to anyone.
People ought not to be paid by the thousands to enforce an unwanted, expensive healthcare system on those of us who never got a chance to say no.
We ought to get rid of the departments of education, health and human services.
Anyone can look at the results of their work and see that we did a much better job when decisions were made on the local level. We'd save a lot of money if our big brother government got its nose out of most of the stuff it's in.
People ought not to be taxed to the hilt so that they are not able to afford to hire others to work for them. And they ought not to be taxed after they die, so that their heirs have to sell their inheritance in order to give the government more of what they have already paid taxes on.
The rich ought to pay the same percentage of their income as anyone else, so they can invest more money in the free enterprises they run,
to provide jobs for more people, so that more people can get out of the 51 percent and help the 49 percent.
Common sense tells us what ought to be done.
Are there enough people out there with common sense enough to vote out the arrogant tax and spenders?
Our honored military dead did not give their life-blood so 51 percent can suck the nation dry by enslaving the 49 percent by the command of our leaders.
They died for the freedoms enumerated in our Declaration of Independence and our Constitution. Will you stand up and vote for what they stood for and died for? May God help us.
