America has a chance if the Republicans can replace our current giveaway socialists.
For my support of Donald Trump in a recent letter, some of my "friends" said my letter was brilliant, but I must have lost my mind. I listened as carefully as I could to the recent Republican debate, and one common theme came across: Americans are fed up with our current government. Any two of the Republicans participating in the debate would make a good president and vice president. I hope and pray that Trump and Ben Carson will team up and be our next chief executives in the White House.
About the question panel, I agree with many that they were less than desirable, and I also came to the conclusion that Anderson Cooper and his chatterbox guests should never be on again.
The truth is that America has experienced many crises, and America has survived, but if something isn't done very soon, all the American dreams, as well as America, will diffuse. Our Congress recently removed any limits on our incredible debt. Our president and Secretary of State John Kerry recently walked away from Iranian threats, gave them $150 billion and left American hostages in Iran. I repeat: No great nation can survive without a superior military and responsible fiscal affairs.
Never miss a local story.
The Internet and Google provided me with a few statistics, though more research should be done to check the accuracy of them. Even if the numbers are not 100 percent accurate, they are frightening:
n National debt: 1989, $2 trillion; 2015, $19 trillion
n Legal immigrants: 1990, 19 million; 2014, 41 million
n Illegal immigrants: 1990, 3.5 million; 2014, 11.3 million
n Size of military: 1990, 2 million; 2015, 1.5 million
n Cost of welfare: 1989, $19.6 billion; 2015, $500 billion
I had intended to gather a few stats on the number of political scandals and the number of financial scandals for the same time periods as above, but I simply didn't have the heart. The reason there are such good Republican candidates is because Americans have finally awakened, and I urge every American to follow the debates and vote.
