Letter: Does Obama think we’re McStupids?

Let’s be honest, it costs a lot of money to be a liberal. Everything you purchase now costs more. Government health care, food and gas prices have gone through the roof. It’s a ripple effect. Do you think raising the minimum wage will solve anything? Paying someone $15/hour to put a pickle on a bun or flip a burger is nuts. Does Obama think we’re McStupids? Our military doesn’t even get paid minimum wage.

Voters were hoodwinked in the last election by an untrustworthy president who wrote the book on lying: Benghazi; the IRS scandal; NSA spying; Fast and Furious; industry bailouts; job creation promises (shovel-ready jobs); transparency (Remember “You didn’t build that?”); the hollow Syrian red line in the sand threat; the $17 trillion debt; his pledge to “protect and defend our Constitution,” not change it; the VA debacle; and now he alone will solve our terrible immigration problem. All I can say is “Please, Mr. President, spare me the details of your next promise, or, better yet, lie, before I throw up.”

Only 5 1/2 years earlier gas was $1.80/gal, jobs were plentiful and higher education was affordable. Life was pretty good. We were all happy.

Enter Obama. Now the American middle class is vanishing right before our eyes. We’ve gone from living comfortably to struggling to barely survive. Our wealth has plunged drastically. Isn’t the federal government supposed to work for us and not the other way around?

Obama promised heaven but delivered hell in the form of poverty, dependency and hopelessness … no jobs. What are you going to do about it in November? Do you want your life run by the federal government or do you want to be the master of you own destiny? Then don’t vote for people like Hillary Clinton, Elizabeth Warren, Mark Udall and all their kind. There are consequences to voting. Now go do the right thing.
