America isn’t the free country it was
The election is over, and I admit to being shocked, especially people now knowing what they may have not known four years ago. The people chose abortion over life. The people chose gay rights over traditional marriage. The people chose socialism over a free country.

Where do I go from here? I will still stand for freedom, for life and for a free country, but I have been brought to the reality that the America I loved and hoped would find its way back will now just be a memory. I can handle that, but I am sad for my grandkids who will never know what we had.

As for the Republican Party, if it abandons now the platform for life, marriage and freedom, I will leave the party.

I want to congratulate three parties. First, the media for refusing to report the news and the facts of Barrack Hussein Obama and being press secretaries for the Democrats’ positions. I want to thank all the takers in our society who use the Obama phones, the unearned income tax credit and the many giveaways that I have to work hard to pay for. And finally, to my own Christian brothers of all colors and of all ethnic backgrounds who stayed home and did not vote at all, and continue to allow non-Christians and those with no morals in all offices to run our country.

This will be my last letter for a couple of years until I find out if there are still burning embers left  in the American people to restore our country, if there will be anything left of it in four more years. After the next four years can we please move beyond blaming Bush, and will Obama finally take some responsibility for something after 8 years?

So long Romney, enjoy moving on
Well, the election is now over, and the people have voted for President Obama. Former Governor Romney can now feel really sorry that he will not get to join the 47 percent that he loathes. He is not able to move into government housing and getting, as Fox News says, “FREE Stuff.”

I wish him well in his endeavors to not have to pay taxes at all. Good-bye, Romney.
