We are to blame for nation's woes

Forsyth County News
We blame the politicians, the atheists, judges, and everybody else for our problems in our wonderful country. The blame is [on] me and you, because we have set back and allowed this to happen.

Approximately 70 percent of the American people does not even vote in the national election for our president, House members and Senate, so we allow the small minority to vote in office who they prefer. It is worse in our local elections; less than 15 percent of the people vote and then they wonder how some of the leaders are elected, and they are usually the first people to say we elected the wrong leaders.

The Constitution does not state Republicans, Democrats, or Independents, but states “We the people.”

The people that started our country started it based upon Christian beliefs. However, we the people have allowed prayer to be removed from our schools and the Ten Commandments to be removed from buildings such as courthouses. We have set back and allowed that to happen.

A country cannot be a Christian but we, as individuals, can be Christians and teach our children and those around us including our politicians to adhere to the Christian principles our country was founded upon. Let’s all get involved and let our politicians know what we truly expect of them.
