Our American ideals, customs, Bill of Rights and Constitution are being threatened to the extent of reducing the rights, freedoms and privileges we have enjoyed for over 230 years.
Our oil independence has been ended with the closure of pipeline construction which has put thousands of workers out of work. The prices at the pump are rising as is the price of heating oil.
Two COVID-19 bills passed, which send most of the money to other than COVID-19 relief. Much of the money went to states being poorly run by their governors. Money from the federal government only supports their poor performance.
A recent proposal for a tax increase will add to the destruction of small businesses initially brought about by the COVID-19 shutdown of businesses. The tax proposal will also take money out of the pockets of blue-collar workers.
Our election system is being threatened to the extent of making our elections nothing but a sham, ending the voting rights, accuracy and privileges we have enjoyed for years.
Our southern border has been opened, allowing anyone to enter our country illegally. Unescorted children are being piled into facilities. As reported, more than 10 percent of those entering have the COVID-19 virus. The security of our country is being threatened.
The security of our country is also being threatened by attacks from politicians on our police forces. These attacks stem from the murder of one Black person by a policeman that is getting his just due in our legal system. With uncalled-for support from the media, that murder was blown so far out of proportion it has reached the point of reducing our internal security.
All job categories in our country have a small number of bad people in their ranks — the police included. This in no way should bring about the cruelty now being aimed at our police forces.
Just passed in Maryland are uncalled for laws that unprotect the police to the extent some could leave the force, and as reported, the vacancies created in other police departments are unfilled because there is no one applying for the jobs. Can anyone blame them? These people put their lives in danger every minute they are on the job and now their lives are even more in danger due to the unwarranted interference by the politicians.
