Your Views: Shutdown peril, poor leadership put nation on verge of implosion
With Obamacare looming in the shadows like a thief in the dark and the threat of government shutdown, one has to ask: Is this right for the country?
The present administration says among the items affected by the shutdown will be Social Security and the military. Why those? Are they the most costly or the ones that strike more fear in the hearts of America?
I’d think a good president would protect that from happening instead of putting them on the hit list. Then, let’s look at who’s backing him from our state.
Sen. Tammy Baldwin voted against an amendment designed to keep the U.S. from entering into the small arms treaty. That’s a blatant attack on the Constitution she swore to uphold and protect! Rep. Mark Pocan walked out of the Benghazi inquiry with two parents of fallen soldiers left to testify! With the mindset of these two, along with the likes of Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden, Harry Reid, John McCain, Hillary Clinton and the rest of their cronies, the future of this great nation is on the verge of implosion, brought on by our present administration! These issues aren’t personal; like the president stated, they’re true concerns of all Americans!
Let’s send a clear and present message to all of them. They were elected to uphold the Constitution by the people, for the people, not the United Nations or their parties’ agendas! If they fail to do so, may God save us all.
