Let other countries solve problems on their own

I sincerely hope the American citizens wake up and get involved in politics and vote the right people into office. Sens. John McCain and Phil Gramm are warmongers. They want to send our military in harm's way in Syria.

We have already attacked two sovereign countries, Iraq and Libya, just as Adolf Hitler did in 1939. I have no idea what we are doing in Afghanistan.

The USA is broke from our tax money going to the Middle East countries. These people hate the USA. They don't want our way of life, so I don't see any reason why we should get involved in their civil wars or jihads.

Let them settle it their way. We have enough problems in the USA to solve, borders, drugs, gangs and all-out crime because there are no jobs.

Please get involved and vote for the right people.

- John Newhouse, Lansing
