Ronald Piretti’s concerns in his recent Town-Crier letter (“Administration Is A Threat,” Aug. 3) are quite real, and are the exact concerns of many intelligent Americans who have paid attention.
The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they’re ignorant; it’s just that they know so much that isn’t so, to quote Ronald Reagan. Attempting to distort the truth by spinning a few facts into a mix of fabricated nonsense is ineffective, as is the attempt to degrade Mr. Piretti’s thoughtful perspective, with under-the-bed comments. Castro’s overthrow of Cuba was successful due to his ability to entice his cult-like followers into believing that big government would take care of them. In stark contrast of this view are Gov. Mitt Romney and his choice of Congressman Paul Ryan as his vice president — two great minds, who can and will bring America back from despair to prosperity.
The left’s inability to find any real skeletons in Gov. Romney’s pristine closet is totally maddening for them. Their only weapons are lies, intimidation and character assassination about Romney’s taxes, his hidden money on remote islands and to criticize Ann Romney for being a stay-at-home mom or having a horse! His wealth is self-made (he donated the entire inheritance from his father to his church) and he has had a “stellar business career,” to quote President Bill Clinton. Romney has nothing to hide, nothing to apologize for, he has broken no laws and has lived the American dream. And, truthfully, “You can’t help the poor by destroying the rich,” to quote Abraham Lincoln.
We know nothing about Obama’s past, except what we read in his books. He has had all of his life’s records sealed from public view. Why? As the documentary 2016 states, “Love him or hate him… you don’t know him!” This fierce protection of Obama’s past has only magnified the fact that the left are complete hypocrites, compounded further by the left-wing media’s bias.
Gov. Romney’s accomplishments, the huge success of the companies he started, the many jobs he created, were all done with investments from private money, not tax dollars! Like… Burger King, Clear Channel Communications, Domino’s Pizza, Dunkin’ Donuts, Sports Authority, Staples, Toys “R” Us, and many others. President Obama’s attacks on Gov. Romney’s record in the private sector also attack real job creation — the free enterprise system! President Obama can’t speak about his own corrupt record and the billions of tax dollars given to companies now bankrupt, and who were also contributors to his own campaign. Had Congressman Ryan known how the stimulus money was to be wasted, he certainly would not have supported it in 2009.
Thankfully, the transition from the left to the right by many Americans since Obama, Pelosi and Reid took charge are encouraging! “Big Government” doesn’t work here, in Cuba or anywhere! Americans are tired of watching the left live off the hard work of others, while this administration continues to force new regulations, to tax and strip the rights of the ultimate “job-providers,” the business owners. The Obamacare tax will break the backs of the already-struggling middle class. Over 500,000 union leaders and members, plus many other organizations, who loudly supported “nationalized health care” in the beginning, have now asked (and have been granted) “exemption” from the enormous burden of providing coverage.
Bloomberg News reported that the Affordable Care Act tax will impose an estimated $813 billion in “new taxes” on job creators and middle class families!
President Bill Clinton, in 1996, imposed a five-year limit on welfare benefits, requiring able-bodied recipients to go to work after two years, and it gave states incentives to create jobs for people on welfare. He said it was far from perfect legislation but went a long way toward overcoming “the flaws of the welfare system for the people who are trapped in it.” Today, unemployment is over 8.3 percent, not counting those who have given up seeking employment, but live on welfare programs as a “career.”
We are out of time if we are to save America, much of it wasted in reporting nonsense rather than truth. The mistakes of the past can only be corrected by electing competent leaders in November.
