DEAR EDITOR:

For the past four years, this government of ours has operated without a budget, has spent us into huge debts and has had one crisis after another, and no one in authority is to blame or is willing to take responsibility.

And every crisis has to be solved with more spending. So fellow Americans, those of you who are maxed out in debt to several credit cards, maybe you should follow the lead of our government and take out a loan or get another credit card to spend your way out of debt and into prosperity.

How long do you think it would be before you lose everything?

Well that is what our government is doing. They refuse to pass a budget because (1) they would have to live by it and (2) because we could see where it all goes and (3) they could no longer blame others.

I don’t know about you, but I am fed up with these so-called leaders (536 in number, plus advisers), most of whom have never had to balance a budget, make a profit, make a payroll or control spending, trying to run this country.

Every regulation, every bill, every solution to all these crises, adds more to the debt, hence another crisis to solve with another loan.

In the words of Rahm Emmanuel, “we should never let a good crisis go to waste.” That seems to sum up the management style of our government.

And with every solution, they tack on unrelated expenditures on the back of the one that they are trying to solve. And now they will manage your and my health care.

This is not a party issue, it is a national issue. I, for one, do not want America to be another Greece, a second-rate power or a has-been. Whether we like it or not, the world needs a strong and vibrant America. If not America, who? China, Russia, Iran, Korea?
