Wrap­ping pa­per trash

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor -

De­cem­ber 2009 will be the death of Amer­ica. While I was Christ­mas shop­ping this week, I could not find one ar­ti­cle of cloth­ing made in Amer­ica. Our steel in­dus­try is gone; the car in­dus­try is on its way out and the air­line in­dus­try will be next. The pro­posed cap & trade leg­is­la­tion, if passed, will tax all en­ergy-pro­duc­ing com­pa­nies, re­sult­ing in enor­mous bills passed on to us con­sumers.

The health care bill will de­stroy small com­pa­nies as they won’t be able to af­ford the fines for not in­sur­ing their em­ploy­ees. It will be the end of the world-class med­i­cal care we have en­joyed in this coun­try as doc­tors will have their pa­tient care sec­ond-guessed by bu­reau­crats; one group of peo­ple will be pit­ted against an­other as the gov­ern­ment de­ter­mines who has the “right” to re­ceive in­creas­ingly lim­ited health care. Take a num­ber and get to the back of the line.

We are watch­ing the demise of the United States of Amer­ica — is any­one lis­ten­ing, does any­one care? Our free­dom of speech is be­ing stripped away, our in­di­vid­ual rights are be­ing eroded as our Con­sti­tu­tion is be­ing used for toi­let pa­per, and our sovereignty as a great na­tion usurped as our pres­i­dent bows his way across Europe and the Mid­dle East.

Mark your cal­en­dars and teach your chil­dren about what was once the great­est ex­per­i­ment in free­dom in the his­tory of mankind be­cause they will not be able to ex­pe­ri­ence it for them­selves. Stephanie Emery Clem­mons, North Carolina
