Our nation is slipping away

Our great United States of America is home to approximately five percent of the world’s population. During our comparatively short existence, America has accomplished more to foster freedom, individualism and opportunity than any place on Earth.

It is no wonder that those not fortunate enough – not having won the lottery of USA birthright – struggle, cheat, and kill to get here. We are the greatest country on Earth, as evidenced by accomplishments unequaled by any place on Earth. Here, a Declaration and Constitution guaranteeing the freedom to all is now being ignored, trampled, and misinterpreted by power-hungry politicians.

We have an immigration policy that has worked for many decades. The ones who did not enforce it now want to change it to buy votes. They have allowed our debt to reach proportions so unimaginable that most can’t comprehend the trouble we are in. Blinded by the hunger for power and desire to maintain their "lofty soft seats" the Washington insiders have us on the brink of destruction. Not the physical destruction of land but the destruction of over two hundred years of giving opportunity and hope to every American who has struggled, worked and many who have died to keep America strong and free.

The only nation on Earth that after freeing millions of people, enabling them a better life, teaching, protecting, and giving monetary aid beyond belief has never asked anything in return.

Keep electing the same old crowd and watch as we lose the gift of our forefathers, whose brilliant writings are only surpassed by the Holy Bible.
