Letter: What a mess our country is experiencing

It’s hard to understand how many misguided Americans voted for our current president and the lunatics he appointed to run our great country. In fact almost nothing Barack Obama has done has been beneficial to America or the world since he was voted in as president.

He is the first president to create more excuses than jobs. He has mired the country in unprecedented debt. He has divided us against each other economically. Internationally, our allies no longer trust America nor do our enemies fear us. He exacerbates racial tensions and encourages race-baiters like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson.

Every word that comes out of his mouth is questionable because of his serial lying behavior. It appears to be his normal way of life. The further a society drifts from the truth the more it will hate those who speak it.

Just for the record, let’s review some history. The Democrat Party was the party of racism dating all the way back to Andrew Jackson. It was the party of slavery, secession, Jim Crow and segregation and the main party of opposition to the civil rights legislation of the 1960s. Today under Obama, it’s the primary source of racial, ethnic and gender divisions.

The Republican Party started in 1854. It was the party of abolition, civil war/civil rights amendments to the Constitution, the party of traditional American values and the rule of law.

Immigration is a good example. Republicans are for enforcing our borders, encouraging people to come here legally. Democrats are for open borders and amnesty. Democrats try to paint Republicans as racist, sexist, antigay, xenophobic or whatever. Not! Name-calling is their thing.

If you’ve wised up since Obama’s election and are feeling voters remorse, you can change your mind this November. A fool never will.
