Americans are angry with the federal government. Citizens from both the left and the right are disgusted with their federally elected. It has become undeniable that the federal government has lied to us all.
Those on the left have been promised easy living. Free food, housing, healthcare, abortions, and college have been promised in return for votes. Despite the left making good on most of these promises, the left wants more and their elected are promising to produce. Once the gravy train began a regular schedule, there's been no way to stop it.
Those on the right have been promised freedom and fairness. Low taxes, limited intrusions into daily life, minimal business regulations, following the Constitution, religious freedom, and certainty of property rights have been promised for votes. The right has delivered the votes, but their freedom and wallets have been eaten away by the federal system.
Eight years ago, the left turned out to elect an unknown who promised free healthcare without the requirement of changing provider or insurer and saving every family $2,500 per year for the package. Clean energy was also part of the package.
Never miss a local story.
The actual result has been people losing coverage and providers, an escalating tax under the threat of prison if a person chooses to go uninsured, the destruction of the coal industry, and 93 million workers unable to find work.
It's election time and out come the promises again; free college from the left and "return to greatness" (whatever that means) from the right.
We would be wise to decide if an unknown candidate is a wise choice again.
Our rights come from God and freedom comes from the laws of the Constitution. I suggest we need the candidate who has promised to be guided by our Constitution and God, Ted Cruz.
