My ideals and thoughts are not popular. The U.S. Government, at one time, did not try to police the world or play babysitter to everyone from cradle to grave. People took responsibility for themselves, their families, and their communities. That is how the founders of America thought it should be. What happened? How did we loose that, and how can we get it back? Why can't we help out sister Jane when she is financial disaster, instead of her having to turn to Uncle Sam to help her out? What happened to looking to your neighbors for help?
Obama is going to save the nation? How please tell me? More hand outs? More STUFF? More spending? How praytell will he be our nations savior?
Will he end welfare? The welfare system has been a failure, if you have not noticed. Our welfare system is unfair to everyone, including most of all to the poor themselves, who are trapped in a system that destroys opportunity for themselves and hope for their children.
Will he end the over taxation of us? Politicians spend millions of dollars to urge people not to smoke -- while spending more millions to subsidize tobacco farmers. They send billions overseas for foreign aid -- while the federal deficit swells. They spend millions to subsidize public art -- while working families struggle to pay their taxes. Isnt it ironic? Will he end this nonsense?
Will he stop the bailing out of companies? Will he stop rewarding thieves? And lets talk about taxes some more, This is quoted from the website http://www.lp.org/, "Let's take a look at a median income family of four in the 1950s. At that time, the Federal income tax amounted to only 2% of the family budget. Americans enjoyed the highest standard of living in the world.
By contrast, in the 1990s, the Federal income tax takes 25% of income for the same family of four. Taxes at all levels -- federal, state, and local; hidden and visible -- take about 50% of a family's income. We must work from January to June just to pay taxes.
It now requires two paychecks to keep many families from going bankrupt. Typically, a working mother brings home 32% of a family's income.
So, whether she chooses to work -- or must work to make ends meet -- taxes have stolen her contribution to the family budget. In other words, one spouse now works all year just to pay taxes."
Is he going to stop this? Will your Savior OBAMA stop this from happening?
Why is he our savior? Albert Einstein once said "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results"
Please stop fooling yourself, and PLEASE stop the insanity!
Just because he speaks well, dresses well, is charming, articulate, educated, and down right dapper, does not make him our hope. He is just like them. We need CHANGE true CHANGE!
