Why do some Americans fail to understand that we not only have a president, but also a House of Representatives and a Senate.

America is not ruled by the president. In America, our president is not a dictator. So why blame him?

When you vote, be honest and give credit where credit is due. President Barack Obama has done an excellent job and can do an even better job with the cooperative help of the House of Representatives and the Senate.

Before you vote think about the future of our country. Don't show any bias. Our country must not become a third world country. Our Congress must work with the president to move our country forward.

Remember, we are one nation under God. Life can be better in America.
