Americans need to stand-up and speak-out against the imbalanced status quo
by Peter Stern
As a nation we are stuck waist-deep in the muck of our own creation. The fact is that currently the U.S. is in worse shape than it was any time during the past decade. An elitist oligarchy is dictating our direction, which includes the destruction of the Middle Class.
President Obama, you promised to create jobs for Americans. That did not happen.
You promised to raise taxes on the wealthy. That did not happen.
What has happened is an insult and all out elitist attack on American citizens.
Use the National Guard along our borders to fight back against the drug gangs entering the U.S. and to return illegals. Send the tab to the Mexican government. Let it pay at least half the cost. Workout an agreement with Mexico to permit our National Guard to chase drug gang members back into Mexico and beyond, into Mexico itself.
Create real jobs jointly with the corporate sector. Create breaks for hiring Americans and building manufacturing plants in the U.S.
You promised to cut-down on our war machine. Either obliterate Libyan pro-forces and Qaddafi immediately or leave that nation. Leave Iraq. Leave Afghanistan. Leave the Middle East. Remove most troops, leaving a few to safeguard the oil fields.
