Spending is biggest problem

After watching all of the debates for the Republican nominee for president of the United States, I am totally convinced that our government’s main problem is overspending. But overspending without a budget, not just this year but for every year Obama has been in office without regards to the validity of the spending will only lead to destruction of our country.

I am convinced that the pet projects the senators and Congress decided to use their designated money on was mostly useless projects. Examples of this

unnecessary spending include (1) the turtle crossing, (2) a railway station that only carries around 15 people a day, (3) to the treadmill/shrimp test, and the list just goes on and on with examples of misuse of government taxpayer monies! OUR MONIES! And that’s not even counting all the monies (our monies) spent and sent to other countries. These people have forgotten that they work for us.

It is time for Americans, the voting unit of this country, to get serious about what their leaders are doing both federally, statewide and in our own communities. Our country has a debt over $15Trillion dollars and growing every second of every day of every month of every year! And this administration still spending like its going out of style and they gotta spend as much as they can before it is too late. It is always easy to spend other people’s money.

By the way, we are the only country that can print money.

Our federal government allows anchor babies, that is illegals coming to the United States and purposely having their babies because they are automatically U.S .citizens and therefore eligible for welfare, food stamps, medical care, and all the other entitlements our country has to offer. We are the only country that I know of that encourages illegals to break the law and then provide them attorneys to help them stay illegally.

And my common sense tells me that this administration has no respect for the Constitution, its laws, and apparently is so arrogant that Obama thinks he knows better than all of us put together. We need to show him by standing up and voting in the upcoming elections.
