To The Editor:

Will the Royal Canadian Mounted Police please help us?

Anyone watching Canadian TV news has seen the greed that some of the politicians in Canadian Parliament have. The RCMP is giving it a full-scale investigation, and has so far found five or six people who were putting in for expenses illegally up to $90,000. This is on top of their $130,000 to $150,000 salary.

It’s too bad we can’t get the RCMP to investigate all the greedy politicians in our government, from the St. Lawrence County level to state level and most importantly the federal level. Our federal government has got to be full of crooks, extortionists, socialists, communists, foreigners and illegal aliens who should be uncovered, prosecuted and jailed for their illegal acts, especially our president for not upholding our Constitution, which he swore to uphold, and not enforcing federal laws. If this was done, our national debt would go down considerably.

We don’t have anyone here that could do this investigating the right way, as our Justice Department is run by Attorney General Eric Holder, who is in bed with Obama and would cover up anything, as he did with the Fast and Furious gun running scheme.

We have a governor here in New York that wants to take our rights away by passing laws illegally, and is another socialist. He is spending $19 million on another unnecessary background check scheme.

Herein St. Lawrence County, we have a district attorney who can’t seem to convict anybody who does anything serious. Like who killed Garrett Phillips in Potsdam? Who killed Bernard Trickey in Ogdensburg? Why has she booked up with 5,000 to 6,000 cases in county court? Why does everybody get probation except in traffic court, where it costs residents big money in fines and by surcharges?

How much is it going to cost St. Lawrence Count taxpayers for Wayne Oxley’s prison term? Could there be any cover-ups? There is greed and manipulation in all our government, and it should be exposed and prosecuted.
