Dear Editor,

I am a proud American. But at the moment I am a frightened American. Our nation is at a crossroads and I fear we may continue on the wrong path. This upcoming election is monumental, the most critical in our nation’s history.

This current occupant of the White House is leading us down a certain path of destruction. I don’t consider him my president because he was ineligible and most certainly not qualified. If he is elected president again our liberties will surely be gone. America, please wake up. Look at his record. It is time to objectively look back to see what he has done to our nation. His slogan of forward is to put blinders on and keep surging forward like lemmings toward a certain destruction.

I cannot believe veterans could align themselves with him after seeing how he abhors this country and its military. He has no respect for our flag or this nation’s history. He wants to decimate our military yet wants a national security force. Now what might that be for?

Some who call themselves Christians still support him even though he openly supports abortion and homosexuality. And if that isn’t enough, his Democratic party banishes God from their convention. How can Christians in good conscience vote for such a man? Search your hearts, Christians.

Is America sufficiently dumbed down to accept a leader such as this, the pied piper of Washington? Has America become so distracted and deceived that it cannot see clearly? Look at our national debt. Look at the lack of foreign policy. Look at the divisiveness of this administration. Look at the moral degradation. Look at the denial of Christian values. Look at the total lack of respect for the office of president. Look at the total lack of respect for our Constitution. Look objectively at all these things. It is frightening. And he wants to continue.

Then there is Obamacare. Is anyone paying attention at what this will cost? Our Medicare rates will go up substantially. Health care will suffer greatly. There is only so much money to go around and when you rob from one to pay for the other it is a recipe for disaster. Free health care? Dream on, folks. Read up on this travesty. It will scare the daylights out of you. As Margaret Thatcher once said, “Socialism is fine until you run out of other people’s money.” Think about that.

Americans, read some history. Become informed. Don’t listen to the drivel of the television ads. Those can truly be classified as propaganda; they are misleading and many are outright lies. Please look at the overall picture. Look at the record. Is this the path we want to continue on? I don’t think so. I humbly ask that America elect a man who has character, not one who is one.

I pray that God will continue to bless America. But I can certainly understand if He does not because how can He bless a nation that turns its back on Him? Look at how He dealt with Israel. When Israel strayed, He abandoned them to their own sinful lifestyles. But He always took them back when they repented. Is that happening to America? Are we going to repent as a nation? Are we going to reverse course and seek Him? November 6 will tell. In the meantime, I pray and I shudder at the prospect of an angry God.
