Don’t pick the wrong person

July 10, 2012
The Daily Mining Gazette

To the editor:

What man should we pick to be our next president? If we should track down all the other presidents and ask them what did they do to help the majority of people to live a better life in America, what could they say?

Let me speak out for Obama. He wants everybody to be able to go to a hospital and at the same time help pay the bills. Also, (he wants) his group of people who have been put down (for) so many generations (to be) given a better chance in life.

I believe he is working for the middle class of people and also feels there must be rich people to help poor people succeed. I believe he has told war mongers "cool it, we cannot afford another war," and he went after those people who want to constantly be at war.

I believe his wife is one of the best first ladies I have ever seen, also the strongest. Today, know the great cosmic ocean and how everything came to be. We all have our God and my God tells me "Lyle, pick him."

Addendum: We have all types of candidates telling us what they will do if they are made president but we all know to say and to do are two different things.
