Folks, as we all know, there is a critical election for America coming up in November. Vote freedom for America, not for a dictatorship and socialism.
America is deeply in debt and getting worse each year, with no hope in sight. This has come about because of two wars (unnecessary), citizens wanting the government to do even more for them, free loaders who get benefits for not working, bail outs, grants, subsidies, foreign aid (unnecessary), medical and schooling for illegals.
These people are so proud of the fact that they receive a government check. When I hear this it makes me laugh and makes me angry at the same time. There is no such thing as a government check. Any money they get comes directly from the hard working taxpayers. The government has no money. However, U.S. Congress and the president both spend it frivolously, even though it isn't theirs and they have taken an oath to do the will of the people and uphold the Constitution and Bill of Rights.
We have some members of Congress, mostly Republicans, who are conservative, right wing, and try to rein in spending. But the president and other members of Congress, mostly Democrats, who are liberal, left wing and socialist, ridicule them and try to turn the people against them.
This country cannot survive if we continue down this path.
