The Democrats dominate the nation and our state. The federal government is out of control; more than 40 percent of the government’s spending is borrowed money. President Obama’s plan is to boost the middle class by spending more.

Obama has had four years to help the middle class, and the middle class is rapidly moving toward poverty. There are more taxes, depreciated houses, higher costs, costly regulations, loss of meaningful jobs, poor education, out-of-control rogue nations, and a host of trends toward government bankruptcy and deterioration of national defense.

A conservative government is the only way out of a national quagmire. Conservatives must vote in a block as the Democrats. The Democrats do not vote the issues but against the conservatives who they have falsely labeled as mean-spirited, selfish and dangerous radicals.

The conservatives have strong principles, so strong some will not vote for a conservative who supports a single anti-conservative interest. Hence, the strong-willed conservatives must take responsibility for the state of our distressed nation.
