No cash, no hope / October 11, 2012
Dear Viewpoint:

I can’t tell you how I long for the days when America was America. We didn’t know when Obama said he would give us change that he meant nickels and dimes and he would get the big bucks. Twenty five years ago “we had Ronald Reagan, Johnny Cash and Bob Hope. Now we have Obama, no cash and no hope.”

I want a President who is a Commander-in-Chief and not a Campaigner-in-Chief, someone who is not an embarrassment to the entire country, someone who is patriotic, a loyal American, hardworking, has integrity, believes in God, someone who appreciates and promotes America’s greatness, someone who commands respect from foreign countries and leaders and also someone who respects our Brave Troops.

It is happening before our eyes as our once wonderful country sinks even deeper into a government dependent, self-centered and corrupt nation. Obama cannot be allowed to do more damage to our country. Michelle Obama stated “our journey is far far from finished.” What do they have in store for us if elected for the next four years? In order to save America from falling into the hands of Islamic rule, we need to replace a lot more folks than just the President, also those on both sides of the aisle. A weapon of mass destruction sites in our White House.

The Obama administration is undoubtedly the most hostile administration to gun ownership in U.S. History. They want the government dictating every aspect of our life and business and want to take our gun rights away. I don’t know about you but I am not going to let a foreign country or an incompetent gun-grabbing politician take away my God given right to protect myself and my family.

Obama is all about political gain and the over throw of the American government by socialist democrats and liberals. He is like a Trojan Horse. He is on the inside destroying America and our Congress can’t seem to grasp the seriousness of the situation. The President doesn’t care about anyone else except the reflection he sees in the mirror. He is the master of deceit and is a manipulator of the art of communication. He is the most anti-American President ever in the history of this country in office. He is arrogant, sarcastic and cocky.

He is even trying to take credit for the killing of Bin Laden. Nobody deserves credit but those great brave Navy Seals who put their lives in jeopardy to take him out. Thank you Navy Seals. The lame brained media is doing everything they can to promote Obama including not reporting on things that they would hang a Republican for.

On Obamacare or Obamatax, Dr. Barbara Bella stated the following: “we are going to be gifted with a healthcare plan that we are forced to purchase, fined if we don’t, signed by a president who smokes, with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn’t pay his taxes, by a government which has already bankrupted social security and medicare, all to be overseen by a surgeon general who is obese and financed by a country that’s broke.”

This administration has failed to comply with a law requiring that it help soldiers, deployed overseas, cast ballots in their home states. Now the headlines state, “Obama to soldiers overseas - no voting for you.”

People, our freedom is at stake and it is our duty to preserve it for the future of our children and grandchildren. There is nothing to be trusted in Obama’s words or deeds. He has run one of the least transparent administrations in American history said spokeswoman Andrea Soul, “Whether hiding lobbyists in coffee shops, cutting back-room deals on Obamacare, or concealing the records of Fast and Furious, President Obama’s pledge to be transparent has turned out to be just another broken promise.”

Lets all make a date on the first Tuesday of November (the 6th) to take out the garbage in Washington. Vote like your life depends on it. It does. As was quotes, “The Seals removed one threat to America, lets remove the other threat on Nov. 6.”

God Bless America,
Nancy M. Ramsey
