Letter to the Editor: Crisis Mode in America

Take off the blinders, America. We are witnessing a revolution taking place, spearheaded by a dictatorial president and radical Democratic Party.

Their goal: transform the political, economic and moral fibers of America. Sadly, they are succeeding, and day by day we are losing more freedoms.

What is their main tactic? Creating a crisis. Everything is an emergency and has to be fixed now. Why? To increase government power and control over our wealth, behavior and lives. A crisis will throw us off guard, upset us and influence us to make decisions and accept solutions we normally would reject. Some examples include carbon penalties in response to global warming, draconian gun laws because of school shootings, and a transitioning to single-payer health care (socialized medicine) in response to a failing Obamacare that deprives Americans of health care while "intentionally" destroying the private insurance industry.

In 2014, we can look forward to numerous, unconstitutional presidential executive orders, 6,000 new regulations by government agencies and strong-arm tactics used by the government against anyone who disagrees with their agenda.

Although it is hard to believe, our country is being destroyed from within. Power corrupts, and this is why we have a Constitution that promotes limited government. Do we have the courage to stand up for freedom?

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!
