With the presidential election pressing in close upon us and the candidates playing politics’ games, there is a question I must ask you this night. Haven’t you, haven’t we as a people had enough? Enough of a government mired in mediocrity, one where our elected officials are no longer public servants but instead have become servants unto themselves? And are you not tired of the reckless government spending yet? We are over 14 trillion dollars in debt and that number is steadily climbing! Does this not disturb us, you and I? If it doesn’t, then it should!! Wake up, America! And wake up before it is too late to do so. It is our own apathy and complacency that has brought our nation to where it is today. This needs to change and quickly. Our nation’s elected officials are there to serve the people, not to serve themselves. This ride of leisure that they, our leaders have enjoyed has gone on far too long now. Whether they realize it or not and whether you realize it or not, this is still a nation that was founded “by the people, for the people”. Send a message to Congress and to our President. Let them know that this is our country and that “Enough is Enough!” Do it today!
William J. Thompson, Jr.
