‘Musts' for America

Here we are, 320 million Americans going about blindly.

We've allowed President Obama to gut our treasury. When he took office, our national debt was $10 trillion; it is now $17.5 trillion and growing.

A depression is in the making. My youth was spent during the Great Depression of the 1920s and '30s. It was horrible.

We have a Congress composed largely of bloated, self-serving politicians letting this happen. Obama makes his own laws as he sees fit and dares them to stop him.

He has two years to go in which to bankrupt this country and that is where we are headed. It is time for us to send him the message, “Straighten up or we impeach.”

America must stop trying to rule the world, stop sending our dollars abroad to those countries that hate us, spend our money on our own poor and hungry people, stop the waste and chastise the wasters. Clean up Washington.

God bless America.
