Tired of big, left-leaning government

Published: Friday, Jan. 17, 2014 1:15 a.m. CST

Hats off to Dave Fox of Tampico for his response [“Democrats not moving country in right direction,” The Reader’s Voice, Jan. 11] to Kathryn Bonnell’s letter giving praises to the Democrats and the current administration.

I’m sure I wasn’t the only one who was livid after reading her letter and would have loved to respond, but Dave’s comments said it so well, and I’m sure voiced the feelings of a whole lot of us out here.

I, for one, applaud my fellow Christian Americans who are sick and tired of all the “discrimination” that the left-wing liberals and media are showering us with, as well as all those who pray for less big government interference in our lives.

I still have confidence that there are more of us out here who want to work hard and be successful, than those who want (and expect) the government to take care of us.

Politicians, take note: One day we, the American people, will take a stand and demand that this country get back to one we can be proud of, instead of ashamed of.
