No "Ds" for me

During my late 20s and 30s I was a Democrat and a union member. I believe in the principle of unions, and still do, but right now some unions are beating America right into the ground and to get elected, politicians have allowed this to happen.

When my union told us we should vote straight Democrat, I thought no, I won't. I have never voted a straight party ticket. This caused me to take a look at what each party represented. What I've seen over the past years is that the Democratic Party supports gun control, abortion and radical environmentalism, which by the way, they've used to destroy the economy of this country for decades now. I am opposed to all three of these. I'm for environmentalism, but not to the point of destroying our economy.

Obama is going to sign us over to the United Nations to take care of gun control on July 27 and then all it needs is the Democratic Senate to ratify it and there is not much doubt about that Harry Reid and the Democrats will apply their rubber stamp.

Several years back, I observed that the Republicans were headed left, so I registered as an independent. About three years ago the Tea Party took up the conservative banner and the Republican Party, being the so called conservative party, got their attention. I decided I could not do my duty and help the conservative cause, if I wasn't Republican, so I changed again.

Obama, Pelosi and Reid and the Democratic house and senate crammed health care down my throat and say it is the will of the people. Pelosi made the brilliant statement that "we'll have to pass it to see what's in it". Remember when Sarah Palin said "Death Panel" and Obama, straight faced, said "no there isn't". Guess what people, there is and Obama lied.

The other thing is that your treatment will be okayed by government bureaucrats and not your doctor. If you are in your 70s and need treatment, you will be evaluated and if they don't think it's money well spent, you will get pain killers to help you until you die.

As you all know, the Federal Government has access to your personal finances. The camels head is in the door. Doctors will only be paid what the bureaucrats allow. You may think that's fine, because they charge too much any way. Do you think good doctors are going to put up with all the crap that goes with their profession and do it for peanuts? Do you think good young people will go into the medical professions for this same reason?

There has been no budget for three years from Harry Reid and the Democrats, so the debt gets bigger and bigger. Every time I look at the price I'm paying for gas I think of Obama, the Democrats, the environmentalists and the Keystone Pipeline. All the extra we have to pay for gas could be going to other parts of our economy to help there.

I'm not saying that the Republican Party is a lot different, because they aren't. But the conservative movement is having an influence in the Republican Party. I'm not saying that Democrats or Republicans, at the grass roots level, are crooked, but at the federal level they are. Under Obamacare if you sell your home, the government gets 3.8 percent of the selling price. There is a lot more in the health care act that they aren't telling you.

My point to this is that, I will not vote for another Democrat, at any level, until I see them come back to putting the good of America first. Allen West said a month ago, that there are 90 plus Communists in The House of Representatives. As I watched the picture of Nancy Pelosi walking hand in hand out of the House, saying that the contempt charge against Erik holder, is a witch hunt, I thought of. Holder and Obama and that they are hiding something. Plain and simple and should comply with what Congress wants.

I thought seriously before writing this letter. I know some will take offense, but no more Obama for me. He raised his arm to the square to uphold the Constitution and has become a power unto himself. Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Hillary, John Kerry, Erik Holder, Barbara Boxer, Bernie Sanders and Richard Lugar are all part of this hidden agenda.

Better wake up Americans, because four more years of Obama and the Democrats and we'll be a third world country.
