MERIDIAN — Comments to all who handle our

tax dollars

Dear Congress,

    I don't want to have to tell my great grandchildren that America was once a great country, and have them disbelieve it. And I don't want them to arrive at adulthood and find you've used them as your "line of credit."

    I've done my part, pulled more than my load, and you ought to be accountable for pulling your load too. If we taxpayers have to pull yours, it may be with a rope and a swift kick. Think about that.

    It seems to me that most of your efforts are bent toward controlling and "regulating" people like me, military veterans, hardworking taxpayers and folks who would not willingly or knowingly violate any law.

    If we were meant to be controlled, we would have come with a remote, and we did not. But you now belong to a body which is now composed of The Government our founding fathers warned us about.

    Our government states that all all they need to make this country a "paradise" is "more money and more power." Remember when our government was "Of the people, by the People and For the People?"

    I think giving money and power to the government is like giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys. The difference is many teenage boys know better than to drink and drive.

    Remember Columbus? He is credited with finding this country we love so much. He left his country not knowing where he was going and when he got here he did know where he was. When he got back to his home he did not know where he had been, but he did it all on somebody else's money.

    Stop wasting our tax dollars giving it to other countries that hate us burn our flag.

    Adhere to the Constitution, if you know what it is. Restore to us our liberty and freedom. Then leave us alone.

    This is my opinion.

    K.W. Turner (retired), Chunky

A majority of House members approved a motion to sue President Obama for exceeding his constitutional boundaries. The lawsuit will focus on the presidents overhaul of health care. Do you think the lawsuit is warranted?
