Letter about presidential election

To the Editor,

Well, it seems that catchy slogans and childish slanders have won over the United States again. We should all be very concerned about this country’s future. Given our current financial status, one would think Republicans and Democrats alike could put their egos aside and think about what’s best for our future; more importantly, the next generations to come. President Obama runs a campaign very well, if only he could run our country likewise. As I watched election night, most main stream news stations made the call that the President would be re-elected. Live feeds across the country showed people cheering and shedding tears of joy as if their savior had come. But it seemed they failed to realize it was their “savior” who increased the national debt by forty-four percent, the unemployment rate by ten percent, and college tuition by twenty-five percent. That list goes on.

It’s fairly common to point the finger at the Bush administration, which may be a contributor, but the fact is, under our current President, our economy is spiralling out of control. I am very aware that people are strong in their beliefs, which is a good thing. However, as responsible, informed voters, we need to look at the big picture. Is re-electing someone who shares the same views as you on petty issues worth driving this country off the fiscal cliff? Next time around I encourage you to elect a president who will take strides forward, not backward, to secure the future of the United States of America.
