The Liberal Redneck here, coming to you from a country that does a piss poor job of protecting our future. Of course I am talking about our children because they are the future. Not a single day goes by without a story about a child being shot and killed by a gun. You would expect that in Afghanistan, but the U.S. is not currently a war zone. Or is it?

We obviously have a severe shortage of “responsible” gun owners. We have more guns than people in this country; they are just in the wrong hands. Many of our children have no healthcare whatsoever. How stupid is that? How can we expect them to be loyal Americans when we can’t take care of them when they are sick?

Many of our children are hungry. What kind of nation lets children go hungry? We throw away enough food to feed most nations and let our own children do without. The first thing to get cut in state budgets is education. How stupid is that? How can we expect them to be productive citizens if we do not educate them? Children are innocent. They have done nothing wrong. They depend on us and we have let them down.

How do we correct this situation? Come November we elect representatives who have not sold their souls to the NRA or the insurance industry and who think that children are more important than any business. In case you are unaware, that would be Democrats!

Republicans want to give our children a gun and a Bible and send them on their way. They are too busy sucking up to business to worry about the future of our nation. It is time for a government that cares more about its citizens than it does about campaign donors. Changes must be made and it is up to us to make them. Vote  BLUE and save the future of the United States of America!
