LETTER TO THE EDITOR: How to destroy America

Question of the Day

Should Congress make English the official language of the U.S.?

With most of the American people only looking outside the country for enemies, we are very vulnerable from within. How could someone take advantage of this vulnerability? Probably by concealing hidden agendas inside what seem like harmless or honest endeavors.

First, tear down the economy. Spend trillions for new health care plans that will still leave 30 million without coverage, but not the same 30 million. Next, keep unemployment high using tactics such as fighting a new oil pipeline from Canada. Use the Environmental Protection Agency to cause more stress to our people and economy by, for example, diverting water to save a fish the size of a finger, resulting in the economic devastation of farmers who need that water.

Then create more and more giveaways to make people dependent on the federal government. Weaken our military, reducing our armed forces to pre-World-War-II levels at a time when countries like China and Russia are increasing their militaries. Then fail to enforce existing laws or over-enforce laws that benefit the current administration’s agenda. Start taking away the rights of average Americans.

The National Defense Authorization Act of 2012, co-written by Sen. John McCain, Arizona Republican, gave authority to the president to order the military to arrest and detain American citizens, innocent or not, without charge or trial. In April 2014, the Supreme Court refused to hear an appeal, so the law stands. What’s next, work camps?
