Letter: Obama golfs while country fails

August 17, 2013 

We have bloated government, of the government, for the government, and by the government, run by bureaucrats, for bureaucrats whose sole purpose is to make government even bigger. Pushing an incessant stream of deceptions, distortions and misinformation with little or no regard for the Constitution, this nation or the American people.

The poor are caught in a malaise of government programs that keeps them right where they are: poor. With little motivation to move from their predicament because government keeps giving them what they need and with no other incentives, they atrophy. The middle class is becoming the new working poor that will eventually get crushed under the weight of even more bloated government.

The controversies and scandals that envelope this government are products of their own making, brought to you mostly by this administration and forged through lies tailor-made to sound plausible, yet deniable with hardly a whimper of deception until you begin to put the pieces together.

IRS, AP, Benghazi, Fast and Furious, NSA all play a pivotal role in this nation and our Constitution's undoing with no accountability and as the nation burns our president plays his nine iron.
