Letters to the Editor: Freedom is the only issue

The conventions are over, we are almost done with attack ads on TV, so forget healthcare, jobs, the economy.  What on earth will it matter if you lose your freedom?  I have spent my whole life "free."  Free to marry who I wanted, live where I wanted, to splurge on a vacation if I wanted, to buy what I wanted and eat what I wanted. I could go on and on. Anyone who has lived free all of their lives cannot even imagine what it would be like to not have these choices. I never wanted my children or grandchildren to be rich or famous, only free to make their own choices like I did. What about you folks that fled tyranny in another country, do you want to go back into it? Most people that come here, come because of our freedom. 

Have you noticed the last 4 years we have been slowly losing our choices? No toys in McDonalds kids meals. Then forced to add fruit even if they didn't want it. Forbid chefs from using bad fat and salt in food and recently super-sized drinks. It all sounds ridiculous, I don't do that at home but now it is mandated (forced) on you. These may sound trivial but it is the "mandating" part that is important. It leads to tyranny and dictatorship.

Then they came up with Obamacare. Even after the majority of people did not want it they have 'mandated' it. Our choice has NOW been eliminated. The President has passed hundreds of Executive orders, by-passing our Congress, which are our checks and balances to protect us.  Every one of which is going to cost us tons of tax-payer money and we don't have any choice. Money Tree anyone?


We have our LAST and FINAL choice on Nov. 6th. Do we want our children and grandchildren to live in a FREE Republic, The United States of America, or in a Communist country, The United Socialist States of America? Please choose FREEDOM.
