ANALYSIS/OPINION:

For the first time in my adult life, I fear for my country. That’s how I felt after reading Sunday’s Commentary page. With the state of the world as it is and liberals preparing to control two branches of government in a few days, there is much to fear. Islamofacism is alive and well in the world as we see India recovering from the Mumbai attacks. Israel is under siege from Hamas and Hezbollah and taking the hit as it tries to defend itself while being blamed around the world for the attacks though acting in self-defense.

Russian aggression is being waged against Ukraine, and Iran is busy at work supporting terrorism all over the globe. There are tensions in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

This is what concerns me and should concern you: We have a president-elect who has no executive experience. He has not even served one term in the Senate. We have a CIA nominee who has no intelligence experience. A comedian who stole an election in Minnesota is likely to become a U.S. senator. Another senator, who will replace Mr. Obama, was appointed by an impeached governor accused of trying to sell the seat to the highest bidder. Corruption and scandal abound in Democratic circles. Where will the checks and balances be with liberals in control of government? Who will stand up and defend America as we know it?
