Are all our politicians liars?

When Kristie Noem ran for office she used her small son talking about his part of the national debt that was then $80,000 and she said " let me take care of that” or “let me worry about that," implying she would stop the rising of the national debt.

But instead, she has voted to raise the national debt ceiling every time and now her son's share of the national debt is $140,000. We elect Republicans or RINOS and they lie to us and never do what they said they would do. They vote for anything Obama wants. So, why not vote for a Democrat? At least we will get freebies from them while they raise the debt.

The Republicans/RINOS just give us lies, and I don't think they vote with God in their hearts anymore. Republicans/RINOS are why we have a Donald Trump.

Liberal policies do not help economy

A recent letter writer noted that the state of Kansas cut taxes and put their economy in the “toilet” while Minnesota raised taxes and their economy is “leading the nation.”

President Obama has raised taxes on income, health insurance plans, capital gains, medical equipment, indoor tanning, Medicare (and on and on) and economic growth has been stagnant. Obama will be the first president since the Great Depression where quarterly economic growth remained below 3 percent. Only Herbert Hoover and Franklin Roosevelt delivered worse economic results in the last 100 years. What possible reason would we have to become more liberal?

If the letter writer feels he doesn’t pay enough in taxes, he should feel free to send his spare money to the U.S. Treasury at any time.
