To the Editor,
I'm not sure how anyone else feels, but I think this entire Presidential campaign is ugly and distasteful. America is expected to choose from two really "not so smart" people. It is a sad day for America. I'm sorry but I don't see any of these individuals with talent to run this country. Obama has done a despicable job. Gave promise to the people and then not only lied, but never looked back at what he lied about.
What I've heard so far from both candidates is immature and unprofessional. What happened to We the People? Two topics I haven't heard discussed by either candidate are the rising debt and stopping Iran from getting nuclear capability. How can the President continue to run the debt, exceeding $16 trillion and counting, and not be held accountable? How can he and Congress be so irresponsible? No one in Washington is doing their job. None of these elected officials deserve to be there. Both presidential candidates scare me. What will America look like in four years?
For those that don't understand the debt ceiling here is a simple explanation. Suppose you live in a single story home, you leave for vacation and the sewer line breaks and floods your home. "Crap" fills to the roof! You return home a week later, so what do you do; call a plumber to fix the sewer line or a construction company to add a second story to your home? Congress has chosen to raise the roof and not fix the problem. How long can this continue? We are approaching a point where we will collapse our entire financial system. Don't think it could happen? Think again.
And then his only claim to fame, health care. Obamacare is an Obamanation. No one knows what's in this document, just ask Nancy Pelosi. She was quoted saying; "We have to pass this to find out what's in it." Is that something a senior congresswoman says? No one in congress including the President has read this 2,000 page document. How do you say this and keep your job?
If Obamacare is so important to America why aren't the President and Congress part of the plan? You "force" policy on the people, but carve out something better for yourself. This certainly sounds socialistic to me. What happened to We the People?
Talking to several people, I'm concerned that some people don't' understand the voting process. The primary election in May is so each party can sort through their respective candidates, Democrat and Republican and select those individuals to move to the general election. Once you get to the general election you vote for any candidate, Republican or Democrat that you want. You do not have to vote just your party ticket.
If you don't like what's happening, find the candidate you believe will create change, but regardless, I encourage everyone to look at the unresolved issues and please vote for We the People!
