Leadership making reader uneasy

Wednesday, January 6, 2010

To the Editor:

During my lifetime I have been governed by 17 different presidents, starting with Woodrow Wilson and ending with Hussein Obama.

Never have I been so insecure about what is happening to our country. Capitalism is gone and socialism is rearing its ugly head. Where Obama is taking us will lead us to total bankruptcy.

There is no way any country can survive under the massive amount of spending the Democrats are doing. They say we are a rich country, but how could that be?

Right now we are bankrupt. We pay $500 million each day for interest on our debts, and Obama keeps on spending.

Has he lost his mind or does he have a purpose for doing it?

I am calling for all people to put your country ahead of your party and let's put a stop to this nonsense.

We are losing more of our freedom each day. Inflation has started and it will end up by costing a bushel basket of dollars to buy a loaf of bread.

I am not writing this for my benefit, because at my age I won't be here long. I am writing for my children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren.

I hope whoever reads this will give it a second thought.

I have been through the Great Depression and World War II, so I know a little about what I am talking about.
