National debt a serious issue

Obama is the name of a man who was elected to be President of the U.S.of A. Hating a person’s name and hating his ideologies are totally different things. At 79 years of age, there is not enough minutes left to waste them on hating a person.  I fully believe that in my lifetime there have been the greatest changes in the U.S. for any generation of people. Going from the bottom of a depression to see the greatest manufacturing country in the world, the richest nation in the world.

When I was young, there was no national debt, every person was equal, they all had no money in their pockets. Now we have 14 trillion dollars of debt and growing from giving billions of dollars to countries who hate us, to trying to supply money to people who do not work neither do they want to work. I’m very proud that I was never with out a job in my life.

The worst scenerio in the future will be the lack of food and necessities of life. Growing up on a farm, we grew all our food but now there are no family farms. All the farmland is owned by big corporations instead of hundreds of families making a living off of 160 acres of land. I predict there will be violence here just like happening in almost every country in the world today; no body will be safe. The News Media of today does not want the people to have information about the seriousness of the situation we are in. It is not like when my great-grandfather came from Ireland and settled in Southern Iowa to farm in the 1850s. By the way he was a legal immigrant and a strong Democrat as my family has been for many years and some still are. This is my personal opinion.
