Re-electing Obama may well mean destruction of our country

To the editor,

A solemn warning to us rings as true today as it did in the days of our founding. "You seem to consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions: a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one, which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy". Thomas Jefferson.

To the editor,

A solemn warning to us rings as true today as it did in the days of our founding. "You seem to consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions: a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one, which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy". Thomas Jefferson.

Never in the history of man has any country been founded by the hands of such wise men as the United States of America. Our Founding Fathers knew the nature of tyrants and created a document that would be difficult to usurp. As long as the people elected honorable men the promise of its principles would keep us free and happy.

The Founders knew that danger would be from within and it would arise from unprincipled men who sought for power and riches. We face those days now and ahead. The road we have been traveling is paved with socialism. The pot holes and bumps along the way have been filled with more socialism. Our infrastructure is living on borrowed time and most programs are not sustainable nor are they found within the powers of the Constitution. Which translates to illicit and not the Law of the Land.

If the current administration returns to power in November we may very well see the destruction of our country and the world will follow right behind us. There will be nothing left to repackage but poverty and mayhem. Those who were ignorant enough to hope for the change will not believe the change they have wrought upon themselves. A nod from nine who refer to themselves as supreme may likely ignore the Supreme Law of the Land and usher in terrible times for all of us.

The signs of the times have crept up on us while we slept. If we awaken in time we can change the course we are heading.
