Post-election praying that our nation can survive these difficult times

To the Editor:

I am in my 80s and happy to have voted in 17 presidential elections in my lifetime. Unlike many millions of other happy voters, I don’t share their enthusiasm.

I’m unhappy that thanks to two years of Democratic Congress control (a la Barney Fife Frank and Sea Dodd running Fanny Mae), in just a few months I have lost over half of my entire life’s retirement savings along with millions of others.

I am saddened that the president’s job is up for sale ” a $700,000,000 (what good couldn’t half of that bought?) advertising budget, overwhelming media influence, and billionaire Sorros and cronies among others. Need we mention possible voter fraud thanks to the influence of Accorn?

I am happy that Nancy Pelosi no longer has to use a small jet requiring a refueling stop on her weekend trips to California. The big jet is only gulping $5.7 million dollars in fuel in a year at taxpayers’ expense. Check that out.

Already we are seeing a whole group of Clinton warm-overs being appointed in scores of positions. What is the “Big Change” being promised? We have a president-elect without military or global experience in place of a true patriot with 35 years in Congress and a well known military history who always was proud to be an American and showed it often.

Yes, I could be happier but am left with a constant prayer on my lips that my country can survive these difficult times. I long to be enthusiastic in the years I have left.
