Letter: Administration Is A Threat

Why has the mainstream media not taken a poll titled, “Threatened/Lost Rights of Americans by this Administration?”

Right to bear arms — With the recent Colorado shooting, the Democrats, with the backing of the media, are again trying to take guns away from law-abiding citizens who have the right to bear arms through the Second Amendment of the Constitution. It was reported that a law-abiding citizen carrying a gun legally in the theater that Friday night might have been able to save innocent lives, as people were saved last year when Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was shot in the head and was helped and probably saved by bystanders. If one was carrying a legal gun, he or she would have been a hero for stopping the perpetrator.

Freedom of religion — In the Obama healthcare program, freedom of religion is challenged with a mandate that Catholic hospitals must perform abortions and offer birth control. Catholic universities are also mandated to provide birth control for the faculty, through Obamacare. Abortion and birth control are against Catholicism. The Democrats and media attack defenders of their religion, using the twisted argument that the Catholic hospitals and universities are against women’s rights. Abortion and birth control have been against the teachings of the Catholic religion since the religion began.

Freedom of speech — We have lost the right to gather in demonstration against government and must apply for a permit to do so. The president of Chick-Fil-A, using his right of free speech against same sex marriage, finds himself not being able to expand his business in two states because the two mayors in these states are pro-same-sex marriage, and have stated they will not approve new locations for his company.

The right to work (not constitutional) — Obama said it is government that creates jobs. Well, where are they? This administration has had more than three and a half years and trillions of dollars to make it happen, and tens of millions of Americans are still out of work. No jobs. Nothing shovel-ready yet?
