Patriotism is spending money wisely

In a recent speech, our fearless leader President Obama made it very clear that if we do not pay more taxes, we are not patriotic.

 

Let's take a look at his buddies in Big Labor who received my patriotic donations in the form of bailouts of their pension funds. That was along with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the mortgage companies. Oh, then there are the big donors to Obama's campaign chest -- mainly General Electric, who paid no patriotic taxes at all.

If the president wants us to be patriotic, then spend the money correctly, not just to pay off his buddies and friends who are not patriotic.

Members of Congress should be patriotic and spend my tax dollars as if they were their own, not ours.

Gerald Ford said, "A government big enough to give you everything you want is a government that is big enough to take from you everything you have."

People, stand up and say to your senator and representative that they can have no more.

In this section of the paper are often printed the addresses and e-mails for our congressmen. Use them. I do.
