Stop the waste

Some feel that our tremendous national debt is created with the battles to save our nation, i.e., Iraq and Afghanistan.

We are now facing other problems: the nuclear problem with Iran and mass murder of citizens in Syria.

Will we become involved? Not unless it creates a chance to destroy our freedom. North Korea could be placed in this same situation.

More problems are: large national debt, how and why did it grow into the trillions of dollars; welfare to create votes for Obama; massive vacations by Obama; special vacations by Michelle Obama and the constant golf trips by Obama; food stamps for potential voters; and free cellphones.

This is the real reason our national debt has grown so rapidly, not the war-eager Republicans. I am proud to say that I, a former U.S. Air Force fighter pilot, have spent 22 years defending our nation with my final year in Vietnam.

During this period, we did not have a wasteful president who donated millions of dollars to our enemies. It is time to think about our future and stop the waste we have seen over the past six years.
