Now you own whatever comes next for our country [UPDATED]

In his letter to the editor of Nov. 21, Jerry Miller gloats at what he feels is a deserved decline of Tea Party influence as shown by numerous Democrat victories in Minnesota and nationally.

Mr. Miller, President Bush and Mitt Romney are gone from the political scene now, so you will have no decent men to blame for what lies ahead. It all belongs to you and the misguided voters who have enabled what is about to befall us as a people and nation.

Now, the next terrorist attack, you own it. Those who can’t get jobs after graduation, you own it. Nuclear Iran, you own it. The upcoming next severe depression, you own it. Trouble finding good health care under Obamacare, you own that. Mistrust from our allies, more trillions in debt, more Benghazi situations, nobody willing to join a military headed by a Commander in Chief who won’t back them, you own all that.

Have trouble getting a loan, become more dependent on food stamps, have several part time jobs instead of a good job, a world government ruled by the United Nations, you own that.

Loss of the freedoms we have known for more than 236 years, a dictatorship instead of a Constitutional republic, less take home pay because of higher taxes, more government corruption and lies, more toleration of fanatic and extremist terrorists, your revenge instead of love of country, you own all that.

Mr. Miller, I hope that you are happy with what lies ahead. As for me all I can say is , “God bless America.” God and patriotic Americans are our only hope now.

    Isn’t this just ducky, Bill Schulz feels spurned and rejected (justifiably) so he strikes out at the Democratic party and the Democratic process.

    He didn’t get his way, so now he pouts. He’s taking his marbles and going home where he is appreciated.
    Everyone but Bill and his fellow travelers are responsible for everything bad that happens in our future, he wants the other party to assume responsibility.

    But Bill’s party, to this very day refuses to assume responsibility for the great depression, for the red scare of the 50’s, for the unnecessary war in Iraq and the 1000’s who died there for Bill’s party. They refuse to accept responsibility for today’s debt, deficit and unemployment. All of those things are somebody else’s fault. Namely President Obama fault.

    Bush and the republicans drive our common car into the ditch and Obama and the Democrats can’t get it out of the ditch fast enough….ergo, it’s Obama’s fault Bush drove the car into the ditch in the first place.

    I’ll tell you what you own Bill, Sour Grapes, tons and tons of sour grapes. How do they taste? You’re going to be munching on them for a long long time.

    I hate to even indulge this kind of nonsense with a response but I can’t help it. IT’S FOUR YEARS. FOUR. YEARS. I have canned goods on my pantry shelf that will last longer than President Obama’s next term. So relax. Chill out. Calm down and get a grip. Everything will be OK. I promise.
