Political leaders taking U.S. in wrong direction

It is so nice to see that once again our media outlet has missed the mark completely.

While you want to sit in the land of “utopia” I call liberalism – or better socialism is the correct term for it – the rest of us out here in the real world can see where our political leaders are taking this country and it is not in the correct direction. You might want to slam the right-wing media sector and draw parallels of them to the Nazi regime and try your best to convince the vast readership that this is the correct comparison and not that of our incompetent (and that is being polite) president who is bent on the total downfall of our economic and social structure, but we are not buying it.

As a business owner, master degree educator and mother of two small children, it is my duty as a strong American to stand up to our socialistic-run government right now and the best way to do that is with the Tea Party. You might think we are a bunch of racist, radical, right-wing Republicans out there flapping our mouths like a bunch of puppets, repeating the rhetoric of our misguided leaders of Beck and Limbaugh. But I ask you, what else are we supposed to do? Stand back as we watch our country fall? Stand back as we let our elected officials who are put there to represent our voice continue to ignore what we are saying and do what they want (last I checked the overwhelming majority of this country did not want the health care bill)?

It is your ignorance on how our government was structured that allows this type of ruling to continue. How misinformed are you and how irresponsible of you to put your socialistic rhetoric in print. Who exactly is the puppet? I think you should take a good long look in the mirror for that answer. In the meantime, I will be using my voice loudly and strongly to save this country for misguided people like you.
