Tuesday, November 6, 2012 is Election Day. We first want to thank those who fought to keep our nation a democracy, giving us the right to choose our own leaders in a democratic fashion. We cannot emphasize enough the importance of exercising your right to vote, and encouraging those around you to do the same. America has a decision to make that will determine the leadership of the next 4 years and impact decades to come. As Election Day approaches, we must learn from our choices of the past. The 2008 Candidate Barack Obama promised us more than “hope” and “change,” he vowed to restore America. Unfortunately, words cannot restore America; it also takes leadership and action. Let us not forget, we have heard it all before:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fZgQhnNRSuw Let’s take a look at the first four years of the Obama Presidency: Obamanomics cost the taxpayer billions in stimulus and bailout out dollars yet led us to the highest unemployment in years. The administration’s spending has sent our deficit into the trillions and punctured our debt ceiling time and again, indebting our country for generations. Obamacare, is more than an expansion of government control, it is a tax imposed on middle class families. This mandated billion-dollar program does not provide the healthcare we were promised…remember, “the same healthcare as members of congress get?” Congress and other insiders are exempted from Obamacare. There are other programs the President attempted: imposing a cap-and-tax on carbon energy production, ending secret ballots for unions via card check, while promising to raise taxes in 2011 until he was stopped when voters elected a GOP House in 2010. The list could go on and on. The bottom line is President Obama doesn't understand how government policies and regulation can sabotage growth. He truly believes that government is the engine of economic prosperity. We created more debt in two years under President Obama then we did in the first 220 years. Candidate Obama claimed he would be “cutting more than I’m spending, so it will be a net spending cut.” The only things cut were the lines of trust with the American people. Reason #01 – Growing on Trees – More Debt in the Past Two Years than in the Previous Two Hundred http://mascotbooks.com/landingpage/52Reasons/
The time for excuses is over. America deserves more from our President. We are a nation of the people, for the people; it is our duty to remind Washington that we are paying attention, we understand, and demand more.
Please honor those who fought to keep our nation free and endured pain and punishment to ensure our freedom and democracy by voting.
Wednesday's Gallup poll numbers sent the media into frenzy as Governor Mitt Romney scooted ahead 51% to 45% over President Obama among likely voters. Astonishingly, after he trailed by 8 points in September. Even, a Pew poll conducted in the same time frame showed Romney leading Obama by 4 points among registered voters.
So which poll bears the truth? It's hard to know, as polls are a function of anticipated voter turnout on the day of the election. With the slightest manipulation to the sample these polls can sway to a contrived outcome.
Presidents leave something in their wake: a legacy. It has been said that those who write history determine history. We shall see what is written about President Obama.
Much has been reported recently about the Obama administration’s position on same-sex marriage. This weekend, Vice President Biden went on "Meet The Press" to show his full support for same-sex marriage, saying he was “absolutely comfortable” with the policy. Facially, this appears to conflict with President Obama’s position as the president’s latest stance on the issue is: “evolving.”
In February 2010 President Obama created the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform, yet another abdication of duty by our elected elites. It’s the role of the president to present a budget and congress to appropriate funds for the needs it sees fit.
Inversely, it is the role of both the president and congress to reduce spending when necessary. Presidents and congresses of past have been great at the appropriating but terrified of spending reductions. Every so often there is enough political heat put on the two – president and congress – that they roll out a blue-ribbon panel charged with reducing government spending. In doing so our elected leaders seek political cover in the form of a task force or panel, rather than taking responsibility for trimming government spending.
