Obama leads America downward

July 8, 2013 

More than 90 percent of the African-American voters voted for President Obama. It couldn't have been because of his performance, so it must have been because of the color of his skin.

Rather than creating much-needed jobs where unemployment is especially high, he spends his time on immigration, gay rights, gun control and a host of social issues.

Hispanics voted for him and his empty promises for jobs and amnesty for the 12 million illegals in this country.

Mitt Romney had a plan to address unemployment, immigration and the economy but it was ignored by these two groups of voters along with liberal white voters.

If the African-Americans, Hispanics and liberal whites continue to vote for the left-wing philosophies and another 12 million illegals are granted amnesty, there will no longer be a two-party system in America. Amnesty will strain education, health care, jobs/wages, crime and population control. Also, this isn't fair to the people who are waiting their turn to come to this country legally.

With no balance of power, America will look very different as a third-rate country with only one system of government. America will rank at the bottom of all countries of the world, much like Illinois ranks at the bottom of all states, and the Chicago way of doing things will continue.

Jerry Costello appears to be the only Democrat who truly represents the residents of Southern Illinois. We need him.

I'll probably get audited this year.
