Dems must ‘own’ impending problems

Bluefield Daily Telegraph

— Congratulations to the Democrats and young people! You now own it. The next terrorist attack, you own it. Can’t get a job after graduation? You own it. Skyrocketing energy prices due to Obama’s EPA shutting down the energy producing states, you own it.

A nuclear Iran, you own it. Bowing to the Soviet Union, you own it. Another severe recession, you own it. A volatile border with Mexico, you own it.

Trouble getting good health care, you own it. Higher heath insurance costs and health care costs, you own it. No federal budget, you own it.  Our allies mistrust, you own it. Several more trillions of debt, you own it. More Benghazi situations, you own it. No one willing to join the military, you own it.  

Trouble getting a loan to buy a home, you own it. More dependency on food stamps, you own it. Trouble finding good employment, you own it. Several part-time jobs instead of a good job, you own it.

A world government, you own it. The United Nations governing the United States instead of ourselves doing it, you own it. A Senate that will not bring any legislation to the table rather it is “dead on arrival,” you own it. China controlling our world trade trampling all over us, you own it. Loss of our freedoms as we have known it in the past, you own it. A dictatorship instead of a democracy that follows the Constitution, you own it.

Less take-home pay and higher living costs, you own it. Driving a car that looks like a toy, you own it. More government corruption and lies, you own it. More toleration of extreme and fanatical Islamists, you own it. Terrorist attacks called workplace incidents, you own it. Your revenge instead of love of country, you own it.

President George Bush is out of it now, and there is not another good man for you to vilify and lie about. In a way I am relieved that another good man will not be blamed when it was impossible to clean up this mess you voted for. Have a good day. God bless the United States and Texas! God is still our hope.
