JOPLIN, Mo. — Since 1973, when the Roe vs. Wade decision was issued by the U.S. Supreme Court, over 55 million fetuses have been aborted; the reasons, at this time, are irrelevant. They were murdered.

Today, there are more recipients on disability than are receiving food stamps and welfare combined. It obviously requires taxes to support these three classes of people because the guy in the White House has deemed it unnecessary to work while receiving food stamps or welfare.

The little island of Cyprus in the Mediterranean is in financial trouble. If you have over $1.35 million in the bank, the government will simply take 40 percent for its disposal. Obama has already taken from the rich in this country to pay their fair share. At what point do we as citizens of America stand up and say enough is enough? Obama has to go.

I do what I can. I have called Sen. Roy Blunt, Sen. Claire McCaskill and Rep. Billy Long and have informed them that this man is intentionally dismantling this country brick by brick. It is silent on the other end of the lines. I can only do what I can do. What will someone else do?
