Letter to the Editor: Critical Election Year

Today, we are facing a crossroad in America’s future. We face a choice between a disastrous path of socialism at home and weakness on the world stage or free-market capitalism, moral authority and steadfast security. In the upcoming elections, we will choose our path. This is why the primaries and November elections of 2010 are so critical.

During the last year, President Barack Obama and his administration have been implementing their master plan for the irreversible conversion of America into a socialistic nation. They have been chipping away at every corner of our American constitutional system and every aspect of our liberties. Obama stands for a comprehensive radicalization of our culture, including schools, marriage and expanding the dependency/welfare class. He also has used his power to polarize and alienate racial and ethnic groups. His most recent attempt: a knee-jerk racial reaction to the Arizona immigration law.

On the economic front, Obama stands for government swallowing up the private sector, equalizing incomes and redistributing the wealth. He and his radicals may use the courts to accomplish this, especially if Elena Kagan, a radical activist, is confirmed to the Supreme Court. All one has to do is look at Greece to see where his socialistic policies will lead us.

Internationally, Obama wants to put America’s interest in second place. He wants to cede our national sovereignty to international leaders and transfer our wealth to “undeveloped nations.” On the national security stage, Obama has turned his back on our allies (Israel andPoland), but schmoozed with Third World thugs like Hugo Chavey, Daniel Ortega, Manual Zelaya and the Castro brothers. Then, too, he has implemented cowardly, passive policies when dealing with radical Islamic terrorism and confronting a nuclear Iran.

Finally, Obama wants to control all aspects of our lives, especially through socialized medicine, cap-and-trade, and punitive environmental regulations. Simply put, President Obama is a card-carrying socialist, and he believes government is the solution, not the problem.

In the future, we must stand up and fight for America. By definition, socialism cannot coexist with personal liberty and liberty is our defining value as a nation. In the next primaries and November election, we must defeat the Obama socialistic machine. We must find, support and elect politicians who believe in the basic principles our country was founded on — lower taxes, individual liberties, strong national defense and limited government.

This is a crucial, transforming election year.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
