What debate?

    To the editor:
    Hello! Hello! Is anyone out there? Are you awake? Are your senses working? Are you that distracted that your emotions and common sense no longer work? Where is the disgust, the outrage, the anger?

    If any adult that is alive today who was an adult at the turn of the century, you should be flipping mad and insulted at the control that your political party has on you today.
    What happened to your memory, do you recall your days in history class. Do you remember who the enemy was during the Second World War, the Korean War and the Cold War? It was the Socialist and the Communist! Do you remember why? Other than the fact that those countries were killing their enemies and their own people that resisted the boot of their government, your freedom and liberty (and your lives) could have been lost if we did not fight for what was right.
    That fight was not long ago.During the 1960’s when the Socialist and the Communist tried to influence the American youth, we told them to go away and if you do not like our way of government, get into politics and change it from within. We thought we were smart and that acceptance would never happen because the American people were too smart and they would never slit their own throats in the future.
    Well here we are today and the elephant in the room is no longer ignored, the Socialist and the Communist are out in plain view today, stronger than ever and they are the leaders of both political parties and they admit who they are and they are bragging.
    Did that statement shake you up? Good. Now that I have your attention and your emotions and senses are working, let’s look at what the two parties have done to you. While you fooled over political emotion and your greedy philosophies, the politicians in Washington and Augusta daily took away your God given, inalienable rights (and your money) away from you and they gave them to others who do not deserve what you have worked for. Let us not forget the illegal aliens who just have to show up at the steps of your capitol buildings and they get everything free that you had to work for and earn.
    When you finally complain, or try to fight for your rights, the political leaders shame you; you are called a racist, a bigot; you’re called selfish and heartless. Everything is turned upside down, inside out and soon, you will understand what you have let slip through your fingers.
    Your religious leaders cannot talk against the government, the schools no longer teach the Constitution and your state and federal legislators will not read or study the Constitutions. Some day they all will tell you the truth and tell you that they have taken away the state and federal Constitutions and have destroyed them before your eyes.
    What is sad is while they were visibly doing it, you did nothing about it!
