In response to recent letter writers depicting Democrats and in particular President Obama as destroyers of America, let me get this straight.
Let's take a walk down memory lane. What party was: in office and allowed America to be attacked on 911; allowed our financial crash that brought our country to its knees; was in office and placed all Americans at risk by putting us into two unnecessary wars; was in office when we were attacked in Beirut; was in office that involved us in the Gulf wars; believes that corporations should have the same rights as an individual American; believes that the financial systems continues to be too big to fail; believes that most Americans are takers? Should I go on and on?
Do you really think that we would be where we find ourselves currently if Republicans really cared about Americans, all Americans?
Republicans stand for war and no resolution to cleaning up our own country. Our country has fundamental issues that continue to be dealt with such as low-paying jobs, food costs doubling, gas prices that will continue to go up because neither party ever did anything to make us less dependent on the Middle East.
Never miss a local story.
There is blame for all politicians. We have a Congress that has five weeks off for summer break, they come back and work four-day weeks and now declare that they are back on vacation until one week after the November elections.
If there are takers in this country, it is clearly members of Congress.
Do you believe you would still have a job if you accomplished nothing over the last 20 years.
Time to stand up and say "no more," get the money out of politicians and watch how fast our once great country will turn around.
