Letter: Our national leaders desire power, money and war

The second oldest profession — politics — just like the first has its lust for pleasure with pay and payment, but brings pain, suffering, sorrow and corruption with power.

It took World War II to bring this nation out of the Great Depression. History does repeat itself. The present administration will attempt to get us in a war that will become a major war.

In the magazine “The Week,” it states that 7 out of 10 people are on the dole. The people receive more in benefits than taxes paid.

We no longer need a House of Representatives, as the Senate and President do what they wish. Sometimes they desire House approval, always putting the blame on others.

Jamestown, the early colony that was communist, failed — the same reason things are happening now. Do we pledge to a constitution and Bill of Rights or to a man and his party?

If there is an attempt to form a national militia, it would be suppressed. All arms must be taken from the people, only the police and military will have semiand automatic firearms. Yes, just like Russia and Germany under Stalin and Hitler.

It’s all about money and power of those who truly control big oil and gas — not who most believe.

    I think someone accidentally bumped Oskar's rocker and woke him up and then he couldn't remember what century he was in.

    This is actually true - both the "Free Republic" and "The American Thinker" have published articles claiming that Jamestown was a communist colony. Only The American Thinker (and this pretty much tells you how ignorant their contributors are) states that "Jamestown was the first UNITED STATES communist colony."

    And really, Mr. Johanson, if wars are plots to get the economy out of depression, why did the last two, Iraq and Afghanistan, contribute to the current economic downturn?

    Time to continue that nap and have someone lock up the sylus's and clay tablets.

    And please ask the LNS to at least spell your first name correctly.
