Kerry will lead nation to ruin



Once again the elections are upon us and politicians are promising the moon. I would like to remind everyone who votes that the only money any government agency can spend must come out of your pocket. Local, state and federal governments must reach into the pockets of the worker to pay for all social and economic programs.

U.S. Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., is getting ready to make the United States a communist country where everyone will work for one wage and free enterprise will not be allowed to flourish.

Heavy taxation of the wealthy results in higher prices for the working class unless the government mandates just how much companies can charge for their products. Government intervention will mean that many more factories will close and the jobs will follow all the others overseas. High tariffs will cripple the output of the remaining factories in the United States.

It is sad that the only person Democrats can find to lead the party is a liberal who will undermine the military and the moral fiber of this country. The Democratic Party and the American Civil Liberties Union are quickly trying to destroy the United States from within, just as great civilizations have been destroyed before... Widespread moral corruption and decay destroyed them all. History will and does repeat itself.
