To the editor:
Where is our country headed? The more we read/hear, the more concerned we as Americans should be. Just where is the money to come from to fill the government agenda set forth in the State of the Union address? Lots of clap-clap rhetoric vs. empty pockets! The list is enormous of all the “goodies” we are to look forward to but, again, where is the money to come from to fill the list? It’s kinda like giving me a free shopping spree to Neiman’s but failing to bankroll the project. Say it again, Samuel!
The big bur at the moment … On TV I head our president say that he did not feel Egypt is our ally. Egypt is on the back of Israel, who is presumed to be our ally. With that comes next the question — Why is our government spending billions in borrowed money to supply Egypt with all those F16s plus 200 big-dog tanks? The U.S. borrows from China to supply free of charge billions of dollars of killing equipment to a non-ally who is a stated enemy of one of our friends!?!? Does that make sense? Makes one wonder just which side our Washington big boys are on.
The more governments grow … the more servitude will grow. Our government was founded on “for the people” which, as I understand it, is all the you’s and me’s. The way the State of the Union address went, sounded more like less you and me and much more of the government. That, folks, is not what we’ve always been about; and the thought of our future, if it continues as it is headed, is frightening. A cartoon, huge creature gnawing on a city … yes, ridiculous, but behind what it depicted was not really too outlandish.
I have never been a pessimist and, believe me, my many years on this earth have not always been a huge bed of roses for me. But with perseverance, things always seemed to shape up. This time I truly feel the next four years will be the most serious years of my lifetime. The nature and balance of our great country should not and must not change from that which we have been constitutionally charged. So, keep the faith and pray to God that He will continue to look on us with favor.
In God we trust,
Billie R. Stone
