Wrapping paper trash
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
