Our country is out of control and it just didn't start with this administration, even though this administration has pushed us over the cliff. We are now dangling by our toes. Our corrupt politicians in Washington have done a marvelous job of taking this great country and virtually destroying what our forefathers built.
Yes, both sides of the fence are to blame for the enormous number of deaths, the $19 trillion debt, skyrocketing health care costs, unemployment, depleted infrastructure, import deficit, poor education ratings, enormous increase in poverty families, and high taxes. Not to mention the lack of honesty from our so-called leaders in Washington.
Here are some alarming numbers rounded off for this year, 2015, in the USA thus far: 10,000 died from gun shots; 5,000 died from driving and texting; 900 died from a bullet from a policemen's gun; more than 40 percent of all Americans live in poverty; the trade deficit with China is at an all-time high, reaching $37.8 billion so far this year. Educationally, the USA ranks 26th worldwide in grades K-12th. We have 5 percent of the total world population with 25 percent of all prisoners in the world and growing, with a cost of over $32,000 per year per inmate. You do the math.
Had enough? Washington takes your hard-earned money and throws it away like confetti while we struggle. No! Don't blame one party. They are all involved in the disaster or someone would step up to the plate.
Never miss a local story.
Social Security is almost broke! Why? Because they dished it out to the poor. Put the poor to work. Bring jobs back to USA.
This country needs term limits on all political leaders. No lobbyists allowed. Let's start there.
