Letter to the Editor: On Fourth of July, America Is Under Attack from Home and Abroad

On July 4th, we will celebrate the independence and birth of our nation.  Included in its foundation: Limited government, nationalism, following the rule of law and the constitution.

Sadly today, things are reversing. As a nation, we are being threatened and undermined by our weak, anti-American, lawless leaders. Many of them are promoting globalization over Americanism, big government control or limited government, lawlessness over following the law, and many refuse to protect our country against the very real threat of Islamic terrorism. It is astonishing, dangerous and frightening. And to add to the problem, the media is aiding in the demise of our republic.

On the positive side, we have a chance to strand up for our country. It will be up to" we the people" to save our republic. Do we want to continue down this dangerous road, or do we want to reclaim our country?

The choice is yours, America. Choose wisely.

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!
