To The Daily Sun,
What an interesting letter from Todd Welch on Oct. 2. Todd says he just "doesn't get Russ Wiles." My, my, strange because I have no trouble at all "getting" Russ. Let me see if I can clear up a couple points Todd brings up.
Saying Obama won by landslides in his elections and asking if the millions who voted for him were stupid. Well I'd say uninformed more accurately describes American voters in many instances.The lore of electing the first black president was just too much of an attraction to pass up for many, in my opinion. Given Obama's record of the past eight years I think I'm on firm ground here.
Todd's second question, what would you do, addressed to Russ. I'll not speak for Russ, but I suspect the answer would be something like this. The government should be bound strictly by the Constitution. It should faithfully execute our laws. If a law is wrong there is a process for changing that law and that is not by executive order (as has been the Obama way).
I expect Russ Wiles can expand on this himself. But I put in my two cents just because I find Todd's letter so foolish. Every one of us conservative letter writers has over and over expounded about all the abuses, lies, deceptions, and misdeeds of the current administration.They are no secret as they have been reported in every newspaper, radio and TV stations in America. Conservatives have endlessly given voice to means of correcting these failures, so what's not to get?
The point is that socialism, (the Democrats' plans) has never worked anywhere any time it has been tried. It all sounds good, but like I said doesn't work. Look at all the socialist countries and all their problems, all their failings. Compare it to free market capitalism which created more wealth and raised more people up out of abject poverty and created a larger middle class then any time in human history, ever.
I do suspect Mr. Welch is someone who has been seduced by the glitter of the socialist promise but has failed to investigate its practicality. There is no free ride, Todd, no free collage, no free homes, cars, vacations; and to cap things off, there are not enough rich people who will fund all this free stuff.
If Hillary and her kind get elected in November the sucking sound you will hear will be all the capital, businesses and jobs going out of the country. In short order both the First and Second amendments to the Constitution will be history and equal justice under the law a quaint old idea lost to the expediency of socialist needs. Just how long do folks think peace and domestic tranquility can survive under those conditions?
