Writer Kevin Gagen’s contention that people in countries with socialist governments have as much liberty as those in capitalist countries is pure nonsense. Two of our rights that are practically non-existent in socialist countries are the right to own guns and the right to choose your own doctors and hospitals — Obama is trying to abolish both.
Gagen also writes that “climate change” is a real, clear danger to mankind and is caused by human activity. More horse manure. “Climate change” is a theory not a fact. Obama’s answer is to get rid of all fossil fuels and go to a totally weather based solution. Would you bet your life on tomorrow’s weather predictions? Obama is gambling our future on it.
Gagen says America is not a Christian nation. Our country’s religion is not based on the Constitution but on the faith of the majority of its people which is Christian. Is Gagen telling us that most of the Middle Eastern countries are not Muslim?
Another conjecture by Gagen is that more guns do not make us safer. During the 1800s most Americans owned guns but yet we had a lot less murders per capita than we do now. Obviously fewer guns is not the answer.
Never miss a local story.
Gagen writes that as many Mexicans are leaving the United States as are entering. In other words they come here illegally, make their fortune, go home to spend it and are replaced by more illegals. That makes me sleep better.
