I have never written a letter to the editor before. I, at this time, hate and shudder at the direction our politicians in Washington, D.C., are taking this country.
We are fast on a pace to turning the United States of America into a socialist or a communist state. Barack Obama was right in his campaign speeches when he said he would change the U.S. government as we knew it.
I cannot see any differences between the Democrats and the Republicans, because when they get in office they only represent themselves. I believe they are all basically criminals, and have forgotten the oaths they swore to when they went into office, and the majority of them should be tried for treason or at least perjury.
I feel it is past time we have term limits for all elected offices, and that on ballots there should be a space for "none of the above," and that each one should require 50 percent-plus of the votes cast to be placed in office.
I also believe anyone receiving welfare checks and food stamps should be required to work at least 20 hours a week to receive those handouts. There is plenty that needs to be done, such as streets to be cleaned, weeds to be cut and general work that is not getting done.
I, for one, will not vote for a person who is in office, and will not vote for one who has held an office before. We need to clean out the mess that we have.
I know that you will never print this letter, but I have at least stated my opinion and I believe the U.S. government as we have it now is the largest organized-crime organization the world has ever known.
