Dear Editor,

GOD BLESS AMERICA!!! I believe He has in the past and will again in the future; I still have hope.

2 Chronicles 7:14 says, “And My people who are called by My name will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

After seeing the movie “2016,” I believe we must stop the ruination of America. It is WE, the people, who are allowing the continued hemorrhaging of America.

A friend told us in order to understand the national debt, you have to put into perspective the numbers by relating to something we can all comprehend. So instead of dollars we will talk in terms of time.

As an example, how many days does it take to make one million seconds? Twelve days.

Since our National Debt is measured in trillions, tell me, how much time do you think it takes to make one trillion seconds (yes, six more zeros than a million)? I am imagining you are thinking I will tell you 317—not days, not weeks, not months, not years—317 CENTURIES!!!

This is the 21st century. Look at the national debt ($16 trillion is the official national debt, although unofficially it is many times greater due to GAAP standards not being recorded properly at this time) and you will see why the American people are being judged by the world for many years of apathy.

It will not change until passive people pray and ask for the good Lord to give us wisdom on how to get through this for our children and grandchildren’s sake. There are many people filled with wisdom and knowledge that could be helping but are NOT speaking up in all levels of our government.

It breaks my heart to think our children and grandchildren will lose the America we have enjoyed through the years. I dearly love where I live and those who live here! I especially love the America that our veterans so valiantly fought for and I want to help do something too!!!

I believe in the Constitution written for one nation under God—the Republic of America. (We are not a democracy, which is brainwashing at its finest!)

May God have mercy on us all before it is too late. Let’s stop discussing what color our president will be in November, what party he belongs to or how many social programs he can provide. Let’s try to focus for four years on balancing the budget following GAAP standards like the government makes all of us adhere to.

Only then will the issues begin to take care of themselves when we start to think again about a balanced budget and ask who stopped the accountability in the first place.

Thank you for listening and I hope you can help get the word out so we can have candidates who don’t have to be charismatic to get elected, they just have a simple story of a balanced budget following GAAP standards to tell to get us back on track.

That is the real issue no one is talking about.

God Bless America, the constitutional land of the free and the home of the brave, and praying to keep it that way.

Most sincerely in Christ’s love and peace,

Cherrie Brown
