It is refreshing and encouraging to see the City Council working effectively and positively to move Anniston forward. Our new community vision is mobilizing and motivating residents to work together, effect change and be committed to our city’s new direction.

As a lifelong resident and committed Annistonian, I am also a passionate advocate of a “free” and strong America; however, I have mixed feelings and worrisome concerns about our future and well-being for America. America’s future as we know it today is being threatened.

Our administration, Congress and the judicial system are all deficient and leading us down the path of no return. Politicians have not served Americans, only their agenda; therefore, our policies and programs are failing and America is losing. Our government and leaders are out of touch with Americans. I ask if the nation has moved forward the last eight or 10 years. Nothing has improved that I see.

Our health care is in shambles and too expensive thanks to a dictated Obamacare nightmare. America’s future should not be compromised and damaged in order to expand leftists’ political power at taxpayers’ expenses. The stimulus plans and government spending have done nothing to improve our economy. This debt load alone will cripple our country. It is all about government control over everything. Sounds like socialism, doesn’t it?

What happened to our states’ rights, a strong defense and our constitutional rights that are now being attacked on all fronts by our own power-hungry politicians? Not only do politicians usurp power, but our liberal media are biased and reports their agenda. American citizens need to take our government back so we can preserve our heritage and foundation that made our country great. A country of the people, by the people and for the people — not a country of the government, by the politicians for their power and control.
