THE PEOPLE SPEAK — Complacency has taken us over

Our freedom paid for by our founding fathers and military heroes has resulted in complacency. Our complacency has allowed America to be taken over by politicians who see themselves as being both smarter and purer than the rest of us.

If you question this characterization, just listen to the rhetoric of Obama, Reid, and Pelosi, whose speeches invariably spew words that demonize and label as unfit anyone who doesn’t agree with their socialistic agenda.

The agenda of Obama and the social Democrats is to transform America into a social democracy along the guidelines of Marx and Lenin. The social Democrats even have the gall to play their trump card, medical care. If we fold now, they’ve got us.
