What to expect now

MOULTRIE — Dear editor:

Congratulations to Barack Obama for winning a second term as president of the United States. So, what have we learned and what exactly have we bought by choosing to keep Obama as president? We learned that the American people have been drawn to care more about government handouts and welfare than they do hard work and supplying for their own needs.

We learned that six trillion dollars in new debt and a forced healthcare plan obviously doesn’t seem more important than electing the man who gave us those results. Colquitt County as well as the State of Georgia elected the Republican Candidate Mitt Romney so I may be preaching to the choir, but I believe this has to be said.

What can we expect to see in an Obama second term? We will continue to see debt rising due to massive spending and the same old plans and policies that have led us to where we are today. We will see the Affordable Healthcare Act, also known as Obamacare, not be repealed and due to that fact will go into effect causing many to lose their jobs due to the employee coverage requirement.

We will possibly hear no answers from what happened in Libya, where four Americans were murdered. We will continue to see gridlock in Washington as Democrats and Republicans, including the president, will choose to bicker instead of doing what is right for the American people.

I believe that what we saw with the re-election of Barack Obama was a clear sign that Americans, at least the majority, have put party over principal. I believe that what we saw with the re-election of the 44th president was that America was asleep the past four years. Mitt Romney brought clear plans to the table. He brought a clear path for the future and he had a record that showed the job was not impossible for him, but America chose to stay the current course, on a train that has little track left.

With the re-election of Barack Obama, I myself have an instilled sense of courage to eventually run for office myself. As I continue to watch as this president and his Senate continually stays on a course suitable only for a socialist nation, I am inspired more and more to conjure the prospect of public service.

I see an America that is suffering but somehow is trapped by party lines or their own ability to choose for themselves who is suitable to lead us.

The re-election of Barak Obama is the re-election of a man not tied down by the Constitution; a man now with no boundaries. He has now a free pass to do what he pleases and believe me, he will. He doesn’t have to worry about the American people getting in his way anymore because he doesn’t have to worry about a re-election campaign.

The American people, at least half of them, have fallen for the trickery presented by this president, and we will all pay the price.

If you think the first four years were a complete failure, you better buckle up and hold on, this second step is going to be a doozy.

Should abortion be legal for victims of rape?

No. That baby is alive, no matter how horrible its manner of conception.
Yes. It's wrong to force a woman to carry the child of her rapist.
Abortion is a private matter and should be legal for everyone.
