Dear Editor:

The election results are a “restraining order” and reflect America’s re-assessment, if not rejection, of President Obama’s vision of transformation and 'change.'

His proposals to redistribute wealth, impose higher taxes and increase government control of our lives and economy are incompatible with the spirit of the Declaration of Independence and the tenets of the Constitution.

Recent events in Europe dramatically illustrate what happens when governments can no longer afford entitlements to the self-declared “entitled. Citizens in France and Greece are demanding more government spending while Americans are peacefully demanding less.

Former UK Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher forewarned that the problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money. 

If you doubt our liberties and prosperity are in danger, consider President Obama’s ominous warning when, in a recent TV appearance, he likened his health care legislation to “every piece of progressive legislation” like Social Security as a “structure” for the changes to come.

His imperious world view and obstinate adherence to discredited and failed economic theories are a matter of record. What is remarkable and dangerous is that in spite of the Constitution, we will be coerced to fund unsolicited, unwanted mandatory government beneficence against our will.

Ayn Rand, the author of “Atlas Shrugged,” observed, “We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion: the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission; which is the stage of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force.”
