To the editor:
In response to Mr. Jay Goad’s letter of Dec. 30, I thought “at last someone was on the ball!” Mr. Goad’s letter was so right. “Let the people decide.”
The people of Indiana elected the men and women to take up problems in Indiana and work with the governor. For three years or more they have tried to pass a ban on gay marriage. I for one cannot see that has anything to do with helping to run the government of the state of Indiana.
I only picked this issue as all of your others were also right.
None of our elected officials, state or federal, want to work on the problems of our state and country. No one wants to reach across the aisle and say “Let’s work this problem out for both sides for the future of our country.” Every politician should be made to read “The Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire.” For with the money and greed, our country is headed that way.
Why don’t the House and Senate cut their pay, contribute to Social Security and pay their part of health insurance? Why shouldn’t they receive only one-fourth of their pay when they are voted out or retire. Years back they deserved it but not now as they do nothing to improve the future of our great country. Nor do they listen to the people who voted for them.
It matters not, Republican or Democrat, the president takes the brunt for everything. Wake up people of this great land, this United States of America, and think!
Thank you Mr. Goad for giving me the courage to speak out. God bless the USA.
