America headed for its own destruction


At least I got my buck, first one harvested in 15 years. We have an eight-point rule on our park and, at 72, I may not have many more chances. Other than that, November was a very sad time for me. I watched our country die. I remember back in 1966, I knelt beside the bodies of my fellow Marines. They were going home in body bags. Now, all their sacrifices, and those of my brothers and sisters from April 19, 1775, to this very day, will soon be lost as the United Sates of America enters its final years. The socialists, Marxists, parasites and government workers, all those who live off the labor of others, have finally won.

Matt Doheny lost to class warfare. Matt was a successful businessman, who only wanted to serve the country that had given him so much, yet he was demonized for that success. Mitt Romney was a decent man, who could have led us out of the darkness covering our land, but his decency would not allow him to meet the challenge. The Democrats pulled off the greatest voter fraud in our history, gathered a coalition of those who depend on government handouts and won the day. Now, what will the future bring us?

Obamacare is the end of quality medical care, as we are on the road to a single-payer, totally bureaucratic system. This is desired by many, but the results will be catastrophic. Rationing, denial of care and a flight of medical professions are now inevitable.

Already Obama is making plans to destroy the Second Amendment through a U.N. treaty set to convene in March. It was his first order of business. This will lead to unimagined violence and civil war.

The deficits will continue to rise, as will government spending. Already the Federal Reserve is printing a trillion dollars of paper money each year and is the primary buyer of national debt. This cannot last and will bring on massive new taxation and inflation.

Private business will flee the country or close down, leaving no jobs and more dependency.

To my children and grandchildren, I beg your forgiveness. My generation failed you, and I was part of it. The American people chose their own destruction, without caring for our country and all its promise and light. Our freedom and liberty is about to perish from this earth. I believe James Madison or another Founding Father said this: America will last only until the majority realizes that they can vote to steal the property of the minority. That time is now.
