The problem is Dems & GOP

| Saturday, March 2, 2013, 9:00 p.m.

Our country is in its current condition and getting worse because many Democrat and Republican politicians have failed to obey their oath of office to the United States. They support — or allow — policies that benefit the United Nations to the detriment of the United States.

Many true patriots, those whose actions match their proclamations, are registering as independents until there is a party they believe will be pro-United States. Since the 1990s, the Democrats and Republicans have been the disease, not the cure. I, for one, will not be part of the disease.

We must demand political action that is pro-USA.

The negative influence of the United Nations upon U.S. economic policy is well documented. The greatest threat to our country is not Iran, North Korea, the Taliban or al-Qaida. These are splinters in our country's finger. The greatest threat to our country is the progressive politicians serving the interests of the United Nations.

Ultimately, if we are too foolish or soft to take action at the voting booth, then we will get what we deserve.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
