An insightful letter appeared the other day, suggesting we are facing the end to this country as we know it. His solution is to dump President Barack Obama, and that will eliminate our demise. My first thought is that it might be a good idea to end the world as we know it.
This country, as we know it, is racist, anti-Semitic, greedy, homophobic and hated by other countries. It has corrupt unions, voting fraud, pork-barrel politics, religious hatred, the Mafia, special-interest lobbyists who persuade politicians to back laws that are not in the best interest of the country, outrageous compensation on Wall Street, unfair taxation, a deadlocked Congress, teen shootings, bribery of politicians, two wars to pay for, blind obedience to party affiliation, legal tobacco products that kill millions, manipulated energy and fuel costs, child abuse, poor health coverage, outrageous medical costs, abuse of government programs, known criminals who are free, a poor educational system, steroid use by pro athletes, high food and transportation costs, epidemic drug abuse, pollution, banking abuses, lawsuits filed for profit without legitimate reason, graft, a broken legal system, unfair treatment of women and abuse of freedom of choice. We allow a minority to set the standard of behavior for the majority, and we glorify celebrities who are hideous role models for young people.
All we have to do is dump Obama and we can prevent our demise. That's a well-thought-out solution. Could there be more to consider?
