To the editor:
Our country is morally crippled. Any person who has an eye can see that we are sinking into a mire of degradation beyond all comprehension. We elect people to our highest offices knowing they are liars, adulterers and immoral. We Americans seem to be saying “just give me more free stuff. We want time and money to eat, drink and be merry. So give us any leader who will promise to provide all this for us. It doesn’t matter if he is a scoundrel — as long as he will give me a free phone with text and voice minutes, food stamps, welfare and promise me that I can prosper while someone else pays for it all.”
I will pose a question: How long before those who work and produce will say enough is enough? When are the taxpayers going to get tired of working and supporting those who choose not to work or support themselves?
The modern-day Democratic Party seems to be cultivating a permanent underclass whom they entice to live off the bounty produced by those who still possess a work ethic. Democrats can’t compete in the arena of ideas so they choose to attract voters by offering more free stuff. The republicans are pulled into a fool’s game where they can never match the free stuff the democrats continually offer.
How long before the rest of the world gets tired of our federal government’s slothful ways and stops the flow of money? That is beginning to happen! When it does, the loudest squeals will be from the dead beats who rely on the government for survival.
America has been on a dangerous downward spiral since 1962 when the nation allowed one miserable atheist woman to have prayer kicked out of school. From that day forward God has consistently become more and more unwelcome in this country. God is a gentleman who will not stay where he in not wanted. He has started to remove his protective hedge from America and look what has happened.
The Democratic Party has been the conduit through which 55 million innocent babies have been sacrificed. Is this something to be proud of? All of you Democrats should pat one another on the back and give yourselves a rousing round of applause.
Not to long ago homosexuality in the military was illegal, how much longer before this president makes it mandatory?
God help our country but I fear he has turned his back on America.
