U.S. being 'shafted' out of its money

Mar 27, 2013 - Mary Sue Shoup, Riverton

Editor:

I was reading the other day on how Texas is wanting to pass a new law about requiring immigrants or illegals to have certification of their citizenship before being able to vote, etc.

I whole heartedly agree. No one who isn't a legal citizen of the United States should be allowed to vote, get a job, and get financial help, anything that the real American citizens get, or should be getting.

Let's see, how many different ways are the people of the U.S. being shafted out of their money?

1. Billions being given to these foreign countries when we can't even afford to take care of our own debts and now we're facing huge cuts taking away the things we've worked for all of our lives.

2. Not being allowed to speak the word God in certain places. Military funerals being limited to certain words, the military even in parades not being allowed to put the bolts in their rifles? It's not just him, it's the ACLU too who are always sticking their noses in where it doesn't belong or is wanted.

3. Giving all of this aid to the illegals yet keeping the people who deserve and actually need the help in financial straits. I guess I was born on the wrong side of the border and don't have 6-7-8 kids that I can ask the government to help pay for so I don't have to worry about becoming a legal American citizen or having to actually get a job and pay for my own way. Go figure.

I could go on and on, but I think you get the picture.

It just blows me away that the people of the United States are just sitting on their hands and not fighting back to keep this from happening. If we don't do something to stop it, we won't have a United States soon. We're slowly being given away to all of the foreign countries and I have yet to see any of them offering us billions in financial assistance.

When did the U.S. become the "caretaker" for every other country in the world? Come on, people. Wake up. Everyone is so afraid to speak out against Obama, yet he has no problem in stepping on all of us. Those that voted him back into office don't realize that everything he is doing now is going to affect all of us in the long run, unless, of course, you work for the government, then you've made sure to cover your own butts. We voted you in and you crapped on us. Nice. I just pray to God it isn't too late for us. I hope we wake up soon and do something to correct these problem.
