Get out of Americans’ way

First, I will say that (letter writers) Jim Wavada, Lloyd Brown and James Dobbs need to reread history. There has always been a Democrat in office before a crisis in this country.

The Democrats have been in power 80 percent of the last 100-plus years. Their reckless spending, ill-timed tax increases and lack of private sector experience have always put this country in financial jeopardy.

Then, usually a conservative gets elected and they get out of the way and let the American people do what we know how to do, clean up government messes. Liberals want handouts and conservatives want to do it themselves. Then the cycle starts again.

When are we Americans going to learn that we can run this country better than a politician? Man up, America.
