National leaders acting like children

Dear Editor,

Sometimes it gets very frustrating having to put up with the childishness by the adults in the White House and Congress. It is very embarrassing that the leaders of our country are acting worse than little children. Other countries are laughing at us for the ridiculous way that our so-called leaders are acting.

This is what we get though for taking God out of schools, doing away with corporal punishment (good old fashioned whipping) and letting the government, video games and TV raise our children and letting the main stream media tell us what to do or listen to.

We used to investigate things when we had to make an important decision. We would read documents before we agreed or disagreed with them. If someone told us ‘You will have to pass it to know what is in it’ it wouldn’t get passed. If Congress had done that we wouldn’t be where we are today. We wouldn’t be trying to defund Obamacare, the government would still be open and President Obama and his people wouldn’t be making idiots of themselves by throwing tantrums because they didn’t get their way.

The national parks and monuments — which we the people actually pay for — would still be open.

Why shouldn’t we get upset and mad about what is going on in Washington? We the people of America are easygoing and very tolerant, to a point.

If you push us too far then we fight back, so Obama needs to start thinking about what will happen when we the people really get mad.

Oh, don’t forget, the armed services’ pledge is to protect first the Constitution of the United States and their country. If the president gives an order that goes against the Constitution then he needs to be tried and convicted of treason.

Be forewarned Washington, we the people are about to reach that point I mentioned earlier, so don’t be surprised if one day we show up on your door step to take back our country.
