Fourteen years ago, powers from Washington flexed its muscle through Title IX in Lodi by threatening to deprive Lodi Unified School District tax funding if the high schools did not integrate P.E. classes with boys and girls. They determined same-sex P.E. classes were a form of discrimination.
That Washington can manipulate local communities and take control to determine what is best for us is frightening. That is what I expect to happen in communist China or Cuba, but not United States of America.
An America I fear is one in which strings can be pulled from a federal power, where local citizens must comply and meet the demands of politicians from afar or face penalties and their wrath.
President Obama and his willing partners have transformed our health care system to be ruled by a 15-man board appointed by the president without congressional oversight. This board will decide how to cut costs, and dictates who wins and loses when it rations health care to Americans. Many people will suffer.
We have a choice this election. Vote for Romney, who wants states to control their destiny, or Obama, who wants Washington to determine the benefits Americans receive. Please vote Nov. 6 and transform America back to an America that our founders envisioned, not the Soviet Union.
Vote Romney to cut strings that Washington now has thanks to Obama's vision of socialism. It is not too late, but it will be after Nov. 6.
