Not Going Forward
I was so pleased to read Chris Mastaler’s letter “When Dems Took Over” (Sept. 28). I have mentioned this fact of the Democrats being in power the last two years of Bush’s presidency.
I’m so tired of hearing the blame of all the spending being placed on George W. Bush, and wonder why this has not been mentioned by the media and others. It is Congress that controls legislation, and Bush’s hands were tied by (Congress) not accepting any of his recommendations on many of the problems that resulted in those years.
It is evident that the liberal media controls much of what we are told and, without checking facts, we believe. I listened to a reporter’s interview of several citizens and was appalled at how little they were informed about our country’s history and about the political candidates, only interested in what benefits they should be entitled to.
The Democrats’ theme is “forward,” but from the backward movement of the past three-and-a-half years, I say let’s go back to the living of those in what is said to be “the greatest generation,” where people were proud of their country and the free enterprise system, and did not want the government in control of our lives and eliminating God.
I would love to have my grandchildren enjoy the freedoms I enjoyed and the family values, and providing for ourselves with the knowledge of what our forefathers fought for and envisioned as a great country.
We are not moving forward. Wake up, America, and change courses.
