Time for 'We The People' to stand up for kind of future we want

To The Daily Sun,

In a few weeks we will be voting for those we want to represent us in Congress. Wether you vote Republican or Democrat, most of us are hoping for a miracle. We are hoping to get our country back and restore the Constitution, protect our borders, send illegal aliens back to where they came from, restore the America we once knew, in short return to a Christian nation that was blessed by God.

I truly wish I could say I believe this election will do all that, but in truth it will not.

We have allowed this to go on for too long. I believe the America we knew and loved is gone. We have been sold out by the very people we elected to keep America free. Both Democrat and Republicans are to blame. And now, do you really believed that things are going to change?

Think about it for a minute or two. We re-elect the same recycled politicians and expect things to change. They want us to believe they will help the poor and middle class and keep America safe. The same crap they feed us every two years and we fall for it every time. (Look up the definition of insanity.) Will we ever learn and realize they (everyone one of them) are a bunch of liars.

When will the American people, regardless of party, realize nothing is going to change. What will it take to take America back? Well it is my opinion that our only chance is to get on our knees and pray to God for forgiveness. Only he can restore America. Our country was founded on godly principles and by men who had the courage to write our Constitution that has served us well for over 200 years.

It's time for "We The People" to decide what kind of future we want for America. Do we continue along the path we are on, or do we stand up and say we had enough and are not going to take it any more? It's up to each and everyone of us to make that decision. What will yours be? It's time we let our so-called leaders in Washington we want our country back. So let's send them a message this November and kick everyone who is in office out and then in two years do it again until they get the message.

My question to you is: Do you have the courage to do it?

This might just be the time for the U.S. to just come home

To The Daily Sun,

Our Congress is, as usual, on vacation trying to raise money to get re-¬≠elected so they can raise money to get re-¬≠elected, etc. Meanwhile, the president and the country are at war in a very complicated place called the Middle East. Congress knows where that is when they go there on fact-finding trips. We are supposed to have a number of countries working with us as this is not 100 percent our fight. Where are they and what are they doing to help us?

To invest large amounts of ground troops in this doesn't appear to be in our long-range interests. After 13 years of Iraq and Afghanistan I would think we have learned this. (Retired Army general) Wesley Clark said this morning, "We should never go to war without knowing the outcome." A meaningless comment.

Both Panetta and Ignatius are second-guessing Obama's strategy along with Gates, Mullen and Petraeus, and now this morning former Ambassador Mark Ginsberg was criticizing him on the Turkey issue. My question is where are all those other countries that promised to help? Why is Turkey sitting and waiting at the border?

Was there a deal made when those 49 hostages were released by ISSL? At least we are there dropping bombs now. The USA has always been there to help others weather it be military, medical or environmental.

This might be the time for them to step up to the plate, or for us to come home.
