I'm voting forreal Americans

The Daily Star

---- — I found DJ Shaver’s comments in the Oct. 22 issue of The Daily Star critical, as usual, of Romney, the Tea Party, Chuck Pinkey and all Republicans.

As a proud holder of a birth certificate for over 83 years, I was confused with her attack on Republicans! In 2008, I voted for an American Republican, as I will, good Lord willing, vote for another American Republican for president in 2012, as I have presidents since 1952. I saw no real proof of our president being an American in 2008 nor to be one in 2012.

What I see today is a government bent on changing or destroying a 236-year democracy made possible by immigrants from every country on the globe becoming American citizens and contributing to our greatness. Now we have non-citizens reaping (raping) benefits from the citizens. John F. Kennedy’s, “Ask not what your county can do for you, but for what you can do for your country” speech has too long been forgotten, and look what we have now?

Right now we need to think clearly what we want for America! More government controls that could bring the sound of clicking boots into our homes (look at Executive order 13603 on the Internet)! It would also be nice if we could once again be One Nation Under God as we were from 1941 to 1945, or at least try!
