Letter to the Editor

Writer Offers Solutions for National Problems


web posted August 15, 2011

Dear Editor,
When are the people of America going to wake up. Do we give up everything we have worked for, since this country began, because the Democrats and Republicans will not do what we elected them to do. The solution is pretty simple. Go to the polls, vote out every incumbent and elect new ones. If they do not make changes in there first term then vote them out!!

These politicians need to live like we live and get the same benefits we do. Then and only then will they make laws that are good for the people of this country. We hear about professional athletes paid on a performance basis. Why not Congressmen/women.

Are we really the strongest country in the world. We take God out of the schools and I guess taking him out of our churches is next.

Is our government intentionally trying to go broke. Do they want Social Security to fail? Our elected officials are not on Social Security. They have a better retirement than that and do not care if it goes under. Do we sit back and think it will take care of itself? What about our children and grandchildren.

Will they grow up in a better world. I think not. What about health care. Has our government betrayed us. They want us to grow older but then we are a burden.

Keep selling our land to foreigners. Think they will give it back one day?

We need something that will eat fire ants and turn it into gasoline.
