Letter to the editor: Benson
To the Editor:I believe that the United States is at the most important election since the Civil War. I truly believe that if Obama wins this election that we will turn down a “road of no return” toward dictatorial socialism.I am not an absolutely “RAH-RAH” Romney supporter. I really think there are better folks out there, like Marco Rubio. However, Romney is the Republican candidate, and he is a so much better choice than Obama that it is a no-brainer.Obama is at best a “socialist.” I do not use this term as an easy put-down of him. He truly believes that the “government” is better suited to run your life than you are. He also truly believes that he is somehow better to do this than anyone else.This country has been sliding down the hill of socialism since Woodrow Wilson. It is an easy hill to slide down. It is much harder to get back up.One major difference between Obama and Romney, (and Bill & Hillary Clinton, Bush 1 & 2, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, John F. Kennedy, Harry Truman, and Franklin Roosevelt) is that Obama truly hates the United States of America. None of the others believed that the U.S. is the most evil country in history. Yes, Roosevelt and the other Democrats wanted to go toward socialism, But they still saw the U.S. as a great country, as the leader in the world.When people like Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, among others, tell me that this country needs to be taken down, that we are no better than Somalia, Mexico, Iran, etc., well then you are (in the words of the Merle Haggard song) “Gettin on the Fightin Side of Me.”I am the first to admit that I have made a lot of poor choices in my life. However, I do not want the likes of Obama telling me that I have to do this, don’t do that.I try not to pay too much attention to the “freemen” right wing wackos, but some of what they have been warning about “A One World Government” is coming true. How much more will happen, and how soon depends on the outcome of this election.Remember, none of us works for poor people. Billionares make the world go around, like it, or not.Norm BensonFraser
