Our children will pay for our failures

Mr. Obama has fulfilled his promise made while campaigning for president. He has changed America, some think for the better. I, for one, am in awe of those who think any part of our nation is better under his "leadership.”

The poor are poorer, the rich richer, schools no better, military in a mess, health care in a mess, and many have left the job market in hopelessness and disgust. This has made the 6 percent unemployment figure a farce. Rambling rhetoric floods from Obama's mouth as he continues avoiding responsibility and blames Republicans, while creating one excuse after another with his self-created problems. His attempts to camouflage his mistakes only prove his desire to "change the greatest nation on Earth,” or his failure as president.

Congress has continued to be ineffective as they talk but fail to act, allowing our unfunded monetary obligations to reach $129 trillion. Social Security, Medicare, etc., going broke while Congress and the president spend over $20 billion annually on illegals. I have the sources for this, but they are too long to put in a letter here.

Watch as food stamp cards pay for groceries, government checks for section 8 housing, medical and schooling for non-English speaking persons, and the ever-growing prison population composed of illegals, and it becomes apparent that we live a lawless, hopeless and very costly existence.

Voters who vote themselves a livelihood from the working taxpayers are in control, as apathetic workers don't even bother to vote. Our little ones will pay for our failing to respond to the liberal, communistic, destruction of this country and culture. Sit back, complain and watch.
