Politicians are defeating America

Throughout our history many countries and ideologies have tried to defeat and destroy us. Thankfully, none succeeded.

We have been a strong nation because the people made it that way. We worked to develop our country and to preserve it with all our energies and our lives. No one could beat us because we stood tall and did what we needed to do and got the job done.

Now we face our greatest enemy ... US. Our politicians treat running this country as though it is a game. They sell their souls and our country to the highest bidder and the groups that can deliver the most votes. The citizens bear much of the guilt for things being the way they are because few of us study the candidates and vote.

As a result, the Democrats and Republicans in Washington, D.C. are in the process of doing what no country or group of countries could ever do... destroy the U.S.A.

Don’t let them do this to us. If we stand by and do nothing, they will win and we’ll lose. Put America first and make sure they do too.
