Numbers, our future look very bleak at best

info@islandpacket.comJuly 30, 2013 

Let's face facts folks. We are in trouble. Harry Reid is the worst Senate majority leader ever. Barack Obama is the worst president in history.

We are $16.7 trillion in debt; 1 billion seconds ago it was 1959, 1 billion minutes ago Jesus was alive, 1 billion hours ago we were in the Stone Age, and 1 billion days ago, no one walked on two feet. Multiply that by 1,000, and you have 1 trillion.

Millions of people are unemployed, gas prices are double, food is expensive, schools are failing, the economy is in the tank, homes are in foreclosure. Obamacare is not working, new taxes are being imposed, morals are defunct, there's no justice in our Justice Department, and millions of foreign criminals are invading America without firing a shot.

Greedy, self-serving politicians are not serving the voters who put them in office. They voted themselves tax-paid insurance and retirement plans. Lobbyists paid them to get re-elected so they are almost unbeatable. The only way to recover the Founding Fathers' intentions is to impose term limits (not to exceed the presidential term limits), cancel their medical insurance and reduce their pensions.

People must reclaim the power, as was intended. We must bring our military home and secure our borders. We must stop sending borrowed money to foreign countries that don't support us.

We need all the help we can muster to survive. God bless this U.S.A. if he or she hasn't given up on us already.
