Please vote in November to reverse America's course

2012-07-15T00:00:00Z Please vote in November to reverse America's course

I guess it is time that we all woke up to the fact that the only welfare our politicians worry about is their own. From the president on down, this seems to hold true.

If we keep going down the road they have chosen for us, we will become a country with only the very rich and the very poor. At the rate they are proceeding, this might not be as far away as we think.

It will not be very long before you will need to be educated at Harvard or Yale to get a job at the big three. The big three being McDonalds, Wendy's or Burger King.

We have a deciding election coming up in November. Please get out and vote. It is your right, and you can make a difference. I believe that a person should not hold an elected position for life.
