Letter: Can Obama be trusted?


As I look back on my life, I can remember the recession in the '40s. We did not have the government give my folks money to make it. My dad worked for the WPA to make a living for the family. We had no running water, no electric and no bathrooms in the house. It was real hard on my folks, but we made it.

Why did Obama have to spend so much money on the inauguration party? He could have given that money to help the ones who needed help. I'm not against helping people out that need help, but make sure the money is going where it will do some good.

Your children and mine, plus our grandchildren, will suffer trying to pay back this money the President is passing out. Most of this money will be wasted just like the $700 billion that was passed out earlier.

The ones that didn't pay their taxes until they had to are now part of the government. The President says it is all right although they were not honest. Any of us would have been put in jail if we did this, but it's OK for them to do it.

Is his plan going to help out in solving the problems we have? I hope I am wrong, but I have no faith in the programs that have been made. I feel a lot of it is just throwing money away that will do no good but put us more in debt. I feel the next four years will be real rough and his name will be in real trouble. He is afraid to take advise from a few older people. I feel we are headed for socialism. It has come to where the government has taken over in all things. This is the way it is in the communist countries. I feel the years ahead are where we will do what the government says.

The guns are the next things that he will be after. Beware if you hunt or have a weapon because it will be coming. Maybe a lot of us had better get on our knees a little more often. I hope we have a big miracle. We are going to need it.
