America should have a better voter turnout

This is a comparison on how voters vote and how they are polled.

I just received a copy of The Week, a magazine on world affairs and opinions. The USA is listed as 138 out of 169 democratic nations on voter turnout. Canada has an 82.6 percent voter turnout and Italy is at 92 percent.

Further, in a recent poll of African Americans, 0 percent said they would vote for Romney. In 2008, Obama had 77 percent of the white vote and 77 percent of the Hispanic vote.

In February 2009, the Newsweek magazine cover stated, “We are all Socialist Now.” Recently Newsweek announced it would no longer be published.

Big-government entitlement gave away more money and printed more. This is a nation of people who want credit or what others have (the word is covet). The media leads us to believe there will be Obama and another four years of the same. Perhaps now this former republic will be known as the USSA. Ben Franklin said at the end of the Constitutional Convention, “We have a republic — if you can keep it.”

Yes, I have lived in what is now called the former USSR. I now cry for this nation called the USA, a nation I served both in war and peace.
