We are still headed too far left

— On June 22, 2012 I submitted a letter regarding the U.S. moving too far to the left. I mentioned how President Obama was promoting the pro-gay agenda worldwide, which I do not believe is his business.

Several responses to that letter stated that is was OK for him to promote the “human rights” agenda. There is nothing wrong with speaking out against “human rights” worldwide and we all know of areas across the globe where people’s rights are severely abused. That is different from taking a specific agenda and making it known that our president is promoting a gay/lesbian/transgender agenda across the globe.

For the life of me I do not know what Obama has done the past nine months except campaign for re-election. He has lied and broken more promisees than he has kept, beginning with saying if he doesn’t turn the economy around in four years he should be a one-term president. I just hope people will remember that this fall.

When the “Adult Video News” trade publication endorsed the Clinton-Gore team, they immediately did all they could to distance their campaign from the endorsement. Most people would assume that the office of president couldn’t fall any further below the sordid days we endured during the impeachment of President Clinton Sadly, the presidency still has a long way to go to reclaim the moral high ground it deserves and so desperately needs.
