Letters to the Editor: Power to people

To the Journal editor:

What has happened to this nation we live in? Could it be the lack of interest the citizens of this country have in our own welfare? We allowed our leaders to run rampant over our rights, our lives and our very freedom!

In the beginning of our nation, our leaders felt it their duty to work in the best interests of the people. For the last several decades they have “worked” to better themselves at our expense!

Isn’t it time that “We, the People” started dictating what they will do for us?! It’s time to re-read the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States of America, the two most important documents in our history!

If our “leaders” had to find their own medical insurance, retirement funds, and pay into Social Security and get paid only when they are in Washington (at their own expense), just think how fast this country would do a turn-around.

Oh yes, and stop meddling in other countries’ affairs!
