Never in my wildest dreams did I ever imagine all the total insanity and absolute absence of common sense displayed by our leaders at all levels, and the gullibility of so many people who continue to support these thugs and vote them back into power.

It seems we are hopeless victims of some comatose condition that won't let us think and reason.

We are living in an America where honesty, fairness, integrity, a just sense of morality, pride in our nation and a deep, sincere faith in an almighty God are virtually a faint memory of what we once were.

I am so disgusted, fed up and infuriated at the Obamas, Reids, Pelosis and Rangels of this world that words fail me. I've lost hope and confidence in just about everything. If these and others like them are the future of our nation, I pray that almighty God will shorten my days because I just don't want to be around to see it. I pray that God will have mercy on us all.

I love my country but I have lost heart.
