To the editor:
I had fully intended to read all of Teresa Hobbs "myths" and "facts" letter in Friday's Sentinel. However, I stopped reading after the very first myth.
Here is why: MYTH - President Obama said "if you've got a business, you didn't build that." Her FACT - as I was reading her attempt at debunking this myth, I read where part of what she said he said is "if you've got a business, you didn't build that."
It seems to me that she should have said, it is not a myth because he actually did say that. Next, she tries to explain what he really meant to say. How does she know his thoughts? I read the MYTH and the FACT; both are exactly the same and, therefore, both are facts - not myths.
Let me give you three important, solid facts. When President Obama took office, gas was $1.85 a gallon. On Sept. 7, 2012, in Lewistown, I paid $3.89 a gallon - which is more than double. Also, when he took office, our national debt was $10.6 trillion dollars. On Sept. 5, 2012, it topped $16 trillion dollars - an increase of $5.4 trillion dollars in three years and nine months. No free country (America) can survive with this kind of excessive spending. Also, on Sept. 5, 2012, about half of the Democratic Party, at their convention, voted to not have the word God in their party platform. Are these people atheists or what?
There are so many, many more reasons I could give for not voting for this man, but hopefully this letter will inspire some very serious soul searching on your part.
