Democrats have turned USA into laughingstock

November 29, 2013 12:00 am

If Democrats and labor unions are so good for our country, why are we $12 trillion in debt with taxes sky-high and more debt coming every day?

I remember when I was a youngster back in the 1930s my stepfather and others saying, "Them Democrats are going to run us all nuts if we let them." Well, just look around you and read the news.

What used to be a rich and powerful nation is now a laughingstock for the rest of the nations that used to respect us. The spending is still being used, as proven by the way our president threw money at our big auto companies after he was elected.
