Page 2A - The News Cori~muni~ Friday. June 29, 2012 Community Cabnd l and:The Letter b the,Editor ............ Proud to be a Democrat Dear Editor In response to the Letter to the Editor in (the Athens Review) Sunday paper about the Democrats and the Assistance to Families with Dependent Chil- dren (AFDC): I grew up in the Big Depression. I have seen an awful lot of hungry children. Th~ o?es in the cities got one meal a day - a bowl of soup and a chunk of bread. I have worked all my life, never asked for a handout, never received any help from the govern- ment or anyone else. r( When Roosevelt followed Hoover into office, an awful lot of the people were hlmgry. The farmers (who were Democrats) gave foc d m help some of them. Roosevelt, a Democrat, is reason we have Social Security which I paid intq all of my working years. I do not feel like that is a.chatity, I feel like I earned it. It took Roosevelt three terms to start pulling us out of a depression that you had to live in to know what it was. When Clinton got into office it was his second term before he got our country back on its feet, and he bal- anced the budget and left us with a surplus. With an- other party in office, the surplus didn't last long and then we were in these wars that we should not have been in. Just stop and think how,lmany of our people have died over there, and for what?? I am proud to be a Democrat becauge we care about real people. The Democrats are'~he only ones that have seen fit to help the poor and the disabled. I don't believe we need to apologize for doing the right thing. After all, we are all God's creatures.
