To The Editor:

The people of the United States were the ones who built this country. They came from foreign counties, came to New York and became citizens of this great country, built their businesses and made this beautiful world, of freedoms for all.

Unfortunately, some one got a brilliant idea. They sent our business over seas. People over seas worked for next to nothing. The companies sent their products for high prices to us.

We have men, we have women, who can make beautiful products (American made) by the people who did days of work and held their heads high; we made our own autos, our own homes and cars. Why have we been sold down the river? Give us back our jobs, our dignity. When our products are taken from us and sent to foreign countries, you take our pride, our dignity, our love away from us.

Right now our country has to repair itself. We have to rebuild itself. Our government has to help us. We have to help ourselves, we can’t fight the world’s battles, while this one proud country is going to hell.

Give us our freedom, our worth, our dignity, let us stand tall and be proud we are Americans again.

Go back to the Lord. He is there for us. God help America. He will if you ask.
