Carol Moore wrote a letter (Nov. 26) complaining about the election results, stating that we must want higher taxes, higher prices at the gas pumps, higher food stamp costs, etc.
It’s just the other way around. We didn’t want higher taxes and the higher taxes belonged where they should be, on the rich and famous, or not-so famous, instead of on the middle guy where it has been all these years. The problem is the middle guy has been paying all these years and the fat guys at the top have been getting richer on the sweat of the middle class.
Four years ago they ran Tweedle-dee and this year they ran Tweedle-dummer, and one of these days they’ll stop running people like this and will realize what the people in the middle class are all about.
Above all else, President Obama proved he is not a president who runs and hides when it comes to taking care of business, doesn’t think self-deportation is such a good idea, and boosted Border Patrol agents on the border since that seems to be our biggest problem at this point.
