It’s time to stand and fight

The most critical election in our nation’s history is fast approaching. On Nov. 6 we will be deciding whether we will remain a “free” society or become a socialist Marxist state.

 When Mr. Obama campaigned in 2007 for president, he had absolutely no experience except as a community organizer. His personal background was either scrubbed or hidden.

Some of his friends and acquaintances-such as Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn were revolutionary radicals. He sat in Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s church for 20 years, who shouted, “God damn America.”  Mr. Obama received endorsements from Louis Farrakhan, Muramar Kaddafi and Hugo Chavez. Wow! What supporters! He trained ACORN workers in Chicago and served as their attorney.

 He was supported by “Big Bucks” from George Soros, a multi-billionaire Marxist. Mr. Obama refused to disclose his donors as other candidates had to do. He surrounded himself with advisors who were: pro-gun control, pro-abortion and pro-homosexual marriages. He appointed czars who were radicals, revolutionists, and avowed Marxist.

 He traveled abroad continually criticizing America and never speaking of her greatness.  Mr. Obama increased our national debt from $10 trillion to $16 trillion., which means he has been, by far, the single largest contributor of any president to a financial burden that will bury our children in economic woe and may in itself be the demise of our republic ... and all that in only four years!

As president he has:

1. Forced the closure of many West Virginia coal mines with hundreds jobless.

2. Rejected the building of the Keystone Pipeline that would have created thousands of jobs and helped us become less dependent on those that hate us in the Middle East.

3. Reduced military funding.

4. Refused off shore and land oil drilling.

5. Administered a failed shovel-ready “stimulus,” with vast sums of money going to his own campaign supporters.

6. Installed policy contributing to gasoline prices doubling.

7. Designed a government “takeover” healthcare (Obamacare) plan forced on all Americans at much higher costs.

8. Raided the Medicare Trust Fund by $716 billion to support Obamacare.

9. Increased food stamp recipients from 32 million to 47 million.

10. Given over $93 million to failed green energy plants in abject cronyism.

11. Administered countless new regulations and red tape on small businesses at unbelievable costs.

12. Presided over unemployment at 7.8 percent (21 million folks out of work, one out of six Americans living in poverty).

13. Issued 923 executive orders (more than all other presidents combined).

14. Invited the Muslim Brotherhood to the White House, while shunning the prime minister of Israel.

15. Been continuously coddled and excused by propagandists disguised as objective media representatives.

16. Failed to submit one annual budget that even legislative members of his own party would vote for.

17. Failed to make jobs the priority.

Uncovered tapes refute Mr. Obama’s claims that he is a Christian when he was speaking to a Muslim group saying he was raised a Muslim, he was educated a Muslim and is still a Muslim.

He celebrates “Ramadan,” the Muslim Holy Day, with his friends in the White House, but does not participate in the National Day of Prayer.

 On Sept. 11, our Libyan ambassador, Chris Stevens and three other Americans were murdered by a terrorist attack. They feared for their lives and requested additional security, which was denied-even reduced. This administration continually tried to cover up this attack.

 Wouldn’t any common sense leader have increased security especially on 9/11? This corrupt administration continues to lie to the American people, but the people are saying, “No more, Mr. President, we are not going to become a socialist Marxist state. We are going to pray, we are going to stand and fight — we are going to vote!

  • Wait long enough; they will die off without being cared for

    The letter to the editor of April 14 (“Military veterans have few friends in Washington, D.C.”),  I am afraid, hit the nail on the head — sort of — about this next set of returning veterans.

  • Translations differ, but the message is eternal

    This letter is in response to a recent letter titled “One cannot compromise on God’s word” (April 13 Times-News). I had previously written a letter titled “Why are compromises so difficult to achieve” (April 7).

  • Closing the loopholes will help clear the regulatory waters

    After a decade of uncertainty over Clean Water Act jurisdiction following Supreme Court challenges in 2001 and 2006, the Environmental Protection Agency and Army Corps of Engineers announced a forthcoming administrative rule to close enforcement loopholes, restoring protections to 20 million acres of wetlands, more than half the nation’s streams, and drinking water for 117 million Americans.

  • The first step Remember where your freedom comes from before criticizing

    The deal at Fort Hood could have been avoided if it was caught in time.
    When you think a GI is not acting right, have him or her checked out before you put them back on duty and give them a weapon. Post-traumatic stress disorder is a serious and dangerous problem if it is not taken care of right away.

  • Midterm elections give chance to return to American values

    A movement has been started by veterans of our armed forces to get out the vote in 2014. That includes Coast Guard and Merchant Marine personnel for those not familiar with the history of both and their sacrifice. This is no small special interest  group, but many millions of Americans who can have an enormous impact on the  outcome of the November election if they all respond.

  • Military veterans have few friends in Washington, D.C.

    Our legislators in Washington must stop playing politics with our veterans, this is  especially true of Vietnam war veterans. Will the game playing carry over to our veterans of present day wars? Will they too become pawns? Veterans have few friends in Washington. Just like the Vietnam veterans, today’s veterans will face
    what we are up against, little to no support.

  • One cannot compromise on God’s word

    A recent letter asked, “What is it about compromises that seem so undesirable?” Most of us are familiar with John 3:16, which says, “For God so loved the world that he gave his only son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” The next verse goes on to say, “For God did not send his son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him”
