Letter to the Editor: A Letter to Our Leaders

With a heavy heart, that is filled with fear and sadness, I am writing this letter to our leaders. You are destroying a once proud, prosperous nation. Whether you are clueless, drunk with power and greed, or have not thought out the ramifications of your actions, I don't know.

How can America survive with massive debts, increasing taxes, a weakened military, an anti-energy policy, Obamacare (that will bankrupt our country and wreck our health-care system), and a pro-Muslim president who won't face the threat of radical Islam and uses the IRS, the EPA and other branches of the government to silence anyone who disagrees with him and to advance his radical agenda?

On the home front, Americans are suffering, our economy is in tatters, and the rule of law and our moral code is being ignored. And worst of all, race is being used to divide and conquer.

Simply stated, America is in decline and our leaders, with the aid of a dishonest, corrupt media are responsible. Where are the honest, pro-American, caring leaders today? I only see a handful. I pray they show up for the sake of our children and grandchildren.

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!
