It’s time to stand and fight

To the Editor:

— 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!
