Catching on?

Letter writer Vincent N. Shonka wonders when his fellow Americans are going to see what a bad job Barack Obama is doing ("A Bad President," June 17).

Some people might be starting to catch on. Unfortunately, I don't think the majority will realize that until they wake up one day and discover that most of their liberties and freedom are gone. And that the United States has turned into the former Soviet Socialist Republic.

There might be a glimmer of hope when they realize that the proposed health-care reform is going to eliminate necessary services and will ultimately destroy one of the best medical treatment systems in the world.

Maybe it will dawn on some people that the systematic dismantling of our national security and getting warm and cozy with the Muslim world is going to do nothing but open us up to another terrorist attack. The next one will be far worse than the first.

Maybe there will be hope when they realize that their paycheck could be next on the list of wage control. It won't be confined to just top executives. That one is a no-brainer.

Thank you for your service to our country, Mr. Shonka. Hang in there. There might be a light at the end of the tunnel. However, I do strongly emphasize the word might.
