Money could be put to better use

Editor, the Advocate:
Obama released five really bad boys from Guantanamo to obtain the return of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl from captivity in Afghanistan, who may or may not be guilty of desertion. Obama violated the law in doing so by not informing Congress 30 days before.
On the other hand, he has done nothing to obtain the release of the Marine who is in prison in Mexico because of crossing the border by mistake. I'm certain if we would cut off all financial assistance to Mexico, this Marine would already be home, and Mexico would secure its borders. We don't owe these countries anything, and they treat us like dirt anyway. This money could better be used to pay off our ever increasing debt.
What would happen if through some circumstance, the U.S. would have to reinstate the draft? Could you blame our young men for not reporting and serving under a commander-in-chief like Obama?
Obama regularly lies, violates American law and does not follow the Constitution that he swore under oath to uphold, and all the while, he is working to take away our constitutional rights.
