Editor:

We now face an existential, Marxist threat to the United States for the next four years. I suggest concentrating on

•Prayer

•Resistance

•Strike (Atlas Shrugged style strike of productive capital and labor)

•Boycott

•Buycott

•Daily calls to Republicans in Congress.

All these items are peaceful and effective when used in concert. If about 30 percent of the Colonists could give us this wonderful country when staring down tyranny, then 48 percent of us can do the same to preserve the United States.

Think of it as a fun project to save our beloved country!

The only solution to our budget problems is the reduction of entitlements and raising taxes. The idea that almost half of the American taxpayers pay no taxes is stupid. Until the non payers support our country, they will continue ... More ›
