Stimulus bill will wreck American way of life

Every time I read one of Felicia Muftic’s left wing columns, I cringe. In July of 1776 the Declaration Of Independence was adopted and followed in 1787 by the U.S. Constitution. Americans fought a war with the British in 1776 because of taxation without representation. I am afraid we are at that crossroads again.

Barrack Obama pushed a bill that will totally wreck the American way of life. Obama is an arrogant fool who ignores history and is bound to repeat it.

What is really sad is we are represented in Congress by a group of non-thinking, self-serving people whose only goal in life is to get re-elected.

Ms. Muftic would have you believe that this so-called stimulus bill is better than wrapped ice cream. It is not, for many reasons.

As a child, I was taught personal responsibility, something that has gone by the boards. Just ask Bill Clinton.

Americans worked hard for what they had, now our government wants to subsidize everybody. We now have a bunch of sheep who want the government to provide for them (socialism). Ask yourself, who will foot the bill?

FDR started welfare in the ’30s and it was was supposed to be temporary but the liberals saw it as a way to buy votes. They bought the votes with your tax dollars and are still at it.

If the Socialists take over, Ms. Muftic will just be another little gray person standing in line with her hand out. She might even be in the street shouting BB as in 1984. The powers that be will still be the powers that be.
