We desperately need leadership

March 2, 2013

To the editor:

President Obama along with hundreds of elected officials continues to destroy America in every way possible. As the finger pointing becomes more intense there is no doubt that solutions will not be forthcoming and the nation will, so sadly, find itself continuing to lose respect around the world. The statement from the President and from other elected officials "I feel their pain" is not only disingenuous, it's just plain disgusting!

Here we have people who are being paid handsomely to do a job who are doing nothing meaningful for America, and who are instead more interested in political posturing then in solving the nation's most pressing problems. No. 1 on the "hit" parade is our need to cut the deficit.

It's absolutely immoral to mortgage our children's future and only the reduction in spending can serve this purpose. The answer is not the raising of taxes and the continuation of thoughtless spending - it's smaller government and the immediate elimination of careless money wasting.

Mr. Obama needs to stop being president of one political party. He needs to lead and he needs to realize that he has been elected to be the president of the entire United States of America. Mr. Obama needs to understand that leadership is an opportunity to serve. It is not a trumpet call to self importance!

The attack on the Second Amendment of the Constitution by irresponsible elected officials adds greatly to the divisiveness being promoted in Washington and literally tears at the fabric of America. Here again, Mr. Obama needs to show reverence and respect for the founders and he needs to understand that he's not there to re-make the Constitution.

And, finally, if Mr. Obama truly has any interest in how history will view him, he will recommend and work towards the ending of the slaughter of millions of babies in the womb. The unconscionable murder called abortion, done indiscriminately for the sake of convenience is a direct attack on God and His laws and can only be characterized as barbaric.

If America is to return to greatness our elected officials need to ditch the pomposity and begin doing the work they are being paid for. Anything else will spell disaster!
