Obama is more of a dictator than a leader

Ada —

President Obama doesn’t want to work with the Republicans to try to do what’s best for the American people. Any 8-year-old child can tell that Obamacare is no good as it is now.

I applaud the Republicans for holding out to try to re-vamp this sorry program.

We have some hard-headed and stubborn people in key positions for the Democrats and a president that is more of a dictator than a leader. Any leader should look ahead at whatever pitfalls he is causing. It’s plain to see that our government is corrupt. Higher taxes, escalating cost of living and no jobs will create low morale, hardship and a burden on us which leads to unrest and ultimately rebellion.

I hope the American people will remember these leaders who are causing so many problems when it comes time to re-elect them. Now I don’t like the word entitlements and I don’t believe it should include Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. These are benefits that we work for 40 to 50 years of our lives paying to the government and upon being old enough to use these benefits we still have to pay for them, plus our income tax.

I realize there are many government programs that need to be re-examined and even eliminated. I don’t like giving more money to a government that has wasted so much of it.

I would like to stop sending money overseas to any country that lets its people disrespect our flag, such as Pakistan.

I guess I’ve said enough except for addressing the Supreme Court and some of the sorry decisions they are making that keeps turning us away from God, but I guess that’s another article to be written. One other thing: the government is not going to default. There is money to pay our bills.

  • Trouble

    It has been a long time since an American president has had to deal with as many simultaneous crises as Barack Obama is trying to handle right now. There has not been this much trouble across the globe since the end of the Cold War and probably not since the Vietnam era.

  • Too much sodium can be a health risk

    Salty potato chips. Salted popcorn. Salt on French fries. We are a nation that loves salt. Although it enhances the flavor of foods, too much sodium is not a good thing.

  • NASA says life on other planets is no longer a fool’s errand

    It has always seemed unlikely to me that this universe, the size of which renders you and me microscopic, could contain only us. Then again, it could, and certainly authors of “The Privileged Planet” make a strong case for it.
