Letter to the Editor: Goodbye, America

As the Fourth of July nears, we are sadly losing our country. President Barack Obama's promise to transform America to a socialist, big government country is coming true.

Today, we see a lawless, divided, weakened America. The U.S. has become a welfare state, especially to millions of Third World, poor, uneducated illegal immigrants. This is especially true in California, where hardworking Americans are treated like second-class citizens, but illegal aliens get every benefit possible paid for by taxpayer money.

The threat of radical Islam is out of control, especially ISIS, thanks to Obama's desire to pull out of Iraq. Complicating everything, he has no plan to defeat them and keeps saying Islam is a peaceful religion, even though Christians, women, children and men are barbarically being murdered.

Today, the Supreme Court jumped on the socialist bandwagon, disregarding the law, the Constitution and the will of the people.

And what has happened to race relations under President Obama? It has been set back decades. This makes sense only if we understand the phrase "divide and conquer."

The president and Democrats are not the only ones who have sold out America. Recently, many Republicans gave away America's sovereignty in the trade bill.

In summary, our great country is being destroyed by politicians of both parties, the president and a complicit media.

On July 4, I will be celebrating what America once was. God, help us.

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!
