Americans are still hoping for change

It’s been over six and a half years since the American public were promised “hope and change” by President Obama. Well, we’re still hoping and the only change we got was a sub-prime mortgage scandal, bailouts for big corporations because of their greed, high unemployment and a major recession.

On top of all that, there’s the IRS targeting conservative voters and the subsequent “loss” of e-mail evidence. How about the treatment of U.S. veterans at VA hospitals across the country? Don’t forget EPA overreach when it comes to coal mining.

Wait, there’s more. Think about the crisis at the Mexican border where tens of thousands of people are crossing into this country. Currently they are being supported by you, the American taxpayer. Obama wants congress to approve $3.7 billion for this mess and even if Congress doesn’t go for that, he can continue to use his liberal executive power to bypass their vote.

Maybe if the NSA wasn’t so busy spying on American’s phone calls they could do something about illegals entering this country.

It does make me wonder, though. Instead of children coming into America, what’s to stop terrorists with bombs getting here through that gaping hole along the border?
