COVINGTON, Ind. —
The election showed just how out of touch the average American is when it comes to how our government works. Today few realize or even have taken the time to understand how great our Constitution is and how it is supposed to work.
The presidents most responsible for its destruction are Woodrow Wilson, Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and now, for the final nail in its coffin, Barack Obama. Those who applauded this have never lived under any other form of government but are willing to toss away the best system ever devised to govern mankind.
Those who supported Obama the most are the very ones who will probably never understand they have been used to push through a agenda they won’t understand. This is how the Sal Alinsky rules for radicals works.
Will it benefit those who helped? More than likely not, they will be the ones who suffer most. Higher fuel costs, higher electricity rates, higher food costs, fewer jobs because of increased government regulations.
Do we really know what Obama’s vision for America is? His intentions are the take money from those who work for it and give it to those that don’t. He believes as Marx did. You just have to look at Russia and China as examples to see how well it has worked.
If Mitt Romney had won, capitalism would have exploded. I understand why this would make a Communist happy, but what about America?

- Searching for answers Searching for answers Editor: I'm certainly not saying the city's firefighters don't need or deserve an increase of funds, but I would like to better understand why. Why do they feel they need more personnel than the national average of 1.04 per 1000
