Weakened country

To the Editor:

America has become a leaderless, weak and direction-less country.

We very recently were feared and, yet, respected at the same time. Now, Russia feels emboldened to do whatever it likes. Christians and U.S. citizens are being beheaded, burned and buried alive. Our only true ally in the Middle East, Israel, feels abandoned by the U.S.

We now have the most incompetent and feckless president in our history supported by a dishonest, cheerleading media. This is exactly what you get from a liberal and god-less administration. We got exactly what an ignorant public gave us.

Obama warned us. He said that he would change America. I knew exactly what a Chicago machine liberal meant by this statement. Sadly, our country is being diminished and disrespected in a way I’ve never seen in my lifetime.

The next time someone tells you to vote for a Democrat, liberal, progressive, etc., they’re all the same, and they are responsible for the sickeningly weakened condition of our once great country.
