Our country is in disarray. The administrationís attitude is if things arenít going well, blame it on someone else or the opposing party. There are no absolutes. Truth and honesty donít matter, case in point, Obamacare. The notable scandals: Fast and Furious, Benghazi, NSA and IRS, the administration spins, denies, delays and stonewalls, betting that in time, people will forget and move on.

We have debt we canít service. Yearly deficits exceed taxes collected. Our debt increased $7 trillion in five years and yet we continue to increase the debt limit. We borrow and print money to pay the interest on our debt. We spend massive amounts on unemployment, food stamps and disability benefits along with ADC rent and utility and subsidy payments. We have become a nanny state taking care of people from cradle to grave.

The president and Congress have dug us in a deep hole. Unfortunately, weíre stuck with our president for three more years, but we can and must take the shovel away from the Congress. This can be done in the voting booth. Make your vote count.
