    Everything you say is so true!!

    Quoting DixieL:

    I didn't vote for President Obama the frist time. I gave my wasted vote to McCain, instead of Obama, for two reasons. 1. I loved Hillary. She had more votes than any primary candidate in the history of our country, and it was taken away from her. Nancy Pelosi, Donna Brazzile, and Howard Dean wanted Obama and they made sure Obama was our candidate. 2. I didn't think he had the experience to clean up the mess, that the Bush people made. In my opinion, he has proven me wrong.He does know what he is doing and he is trying to get our country back on the right track. He is having a hell of a time doing it, because of the republicans going against him, everytime he tries to do anything. Even when the republicans believe the same way, that Obama does they still vote it down. President Obama, already has done a lot, and I believe during his second term, he will get a lot more done for this country. I believe if Romney won, this country would be in a lot of trouble, and the middle class would never be the same again.

    None of those things were caused by Bush or the Republicans who told to say that?

    Quoting jomami:

    George Bush and the republicans caused all of those problems!  Obama has been trying to clean up their mess! 

    We need Obama to continue getting this country on the right track - back to a balanced budget, jobs for Americans, good relations with other countries... Romney won't be able to do these things - he'll only make them worse and lose the ground that Obama has made over the past 4 years.

    AMERICA NEEDS OBAMA!!

    Quoting Billiejeens:

     

    Quoting mamabirdtx:

    Just curious about what President Obama has done that would define his term as disastrous? And how should it have been done differently.

    I don't know how in depth, I should go.

    We have the highest unemployment rate since the Great Depression.

    We have the lowest labor participation rate since the Great Depression.

    The largest Tax increase in the nations history is set to occur on January 1st.

    More people are in need of food stamps and other Government assistance than anytime in history.

    Obama has cut 716 Billion out of Medicare to pay for the medical system he forced upon the country.

    To accomplish this he has added 6 trillion in debt during his term.

    He has spent billions in Taxpayer money on stimulus packages to foreign companies and companies that went bankrupt.
     

    That is just the economic side, throw in the numerous scandals. foreign policy that his own State Department is at odds with,  and it seems pretty clear.

    I watched as Bush took our beautifully balanced budget into the ground and built up the worst deficit this country has ever seen!

    I watched as Bush brought us into war with a country for no reason, spent trillions of our dollars (basically threw the money in the toilet) and caused so many American soldiers to die.

    I watched as Bush turned off so many countries with his arrogant, priviledged attitute (very similar to Romney) and cuased even our friends to look down on us.

    America can't go in that direction again.  We can't afford it!

    We need Obama to continue helping to pick up America after what happened to us while Bush was in office.

    AMERICA NEEDS OBAMA!!

    Really?  We need a liar?  We need someone who misses IMPORTANT MEETINGS, regarding our defense to make meeting Beyonce and JayZ and to be on THE VIEW?  We NEED a man who has spent more in his 4 years than he CONDEMNED BUSH FOR SPENDING,.IN THE EIGHT YEARS HE HELD OFFICE?  We need a man who has made EVERYTHING WORSE?????????

    THIS IGNORANCE is why I can't do this.  I came in to peek at comments and I can't handle people's ignorance and blindness.  I don't mind OPINIONS.  But, to say WE NEED OBAMA IS THE BIGGEST JOKE.  For what?  Do drive us down faster?  To give more BILLIONS TO THE ENEMY????  To bow down to those who want to kill us and blow our country up?????

    What is wrong with people?  What do you think Obama HAS DONE OR IS DOING OR CAN DO THAT HE HASN'T DONE, IN FOUR YEARS?  HE DEFINITELY HASN'T TRIED TO IMPROVE OUR ECONOMY BY SPENDING 5 TRILLION MORE DOLLARS!

    Think of it in HUMAN, NORMAL PEOPLE TERMS:  You have maxed out your credit cards and taken out loans up the ying yang.  Now, you are about to lose your house and your family and children have no idea what you're going to do.  Then you think, "Well, I can get one more credit card and I'll give it to the Muslims over there.  Maybe some way, God will make sure we eat, while I give this new credit line to someone else." 

    Has everyone lost their minds lately?  Do you not see what I see?  Where has he improved or even tried to improve things?  Do you really believe that SPENDING MORE MONEY, WHEN YOU ARE BROKE AND IN DEBT WILL GET YOU OUT OF DEBT?  READ THAT OVER AND REPEAT IT TO YOURSELF AND LOOK AT HOW CRAZY IT IS!

    HOW MANY OF THESE HAVE ALREADY BEEN ACCOMPLISHED.  THIS MOVEMENT AGAINST OUR FREE NATION HAS BEEN IN ACTION SINCE 1958....AND WE HAVE FALLEN FOR THE OKEEDOKE. 

    Communist Goals (1963)
    Documention below

    Congressional Record--Appendix, pp. A34-A35

    January 10, 1963

    Current Communist Goals

    EXTENSION OF REMARKS OF HON. A. S. HERLONG, JR. OF FLORIDA

    IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

    Thursday, January 10, 1963

     

    Mr. HERLONG. Mr. Speaker, Mrs. Patricia Nordman of De Land, Fla., is an ardent and articulate opponent of communism, and until recently published the De Land Courier, which she dedicated to the purpose of alerting the public to the dangers of communism in America.

    At Mrs. Nordman's request, I include in the RECORD, under unanimous consent, the following "Current Communist Goals," which she identifies as an excerpt from "The Naked Communist," by Cleon Skousen:

    [From "The Naked Communist," by Cleon Skousen]

    CURRENT COMMUNIST GOALS

    1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.

    2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.

    3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

    4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.

    5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.

    6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.

    7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.

    8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev's promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.

    9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.

    10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.

    11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)

    12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.

    13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.

    14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.

    15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

    16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

    17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers' associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

    18. Gain control of all student newspapers.

    19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.

    20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.

    21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.

    22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to "eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms."

    23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. "Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art."

    24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.

    25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

    26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."

    27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a "religious crutch."

    28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state."

    29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

    30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the "common man."

    31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the "big picture." Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

    32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture--education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

    33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.

    34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

    35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.

    36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.

    37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.

    38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].

    39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.

    40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

    41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

    42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use ["]united force["] to solve economic, political or social problems.

    43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.

    44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.

    45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.

    Obama is not a liar and he makes plenty of important meetings.  Romney is the one who shouldn't be trusted!.

    Obama is a great president and it's important for our country that he is re-elected!  He will help us get out of the mess that was created by the previous president.  he's working on it but a mess like he walked into requires more time than just 4 yrs. 

    A vote for Romney will set us back.  Don't do that to our country!

    You said that you dont trust tne medis but all what you are saying can be heard on fox news.... Why is that?

    Quoting Seven7ruval11:

    I'm very passionate about what is going on in this country, today.   But, I'm not so sure I can participate in this group and REMAIN SANE and kind.  The division is so apparent here, already and the bashing has already started.  I cannot get into the back and forth thing on a subject I feel VERY INFORMED on.

    See, I don't trust mainstream media, because they all tell us what they want us to hear, which is generally directed in opposition of their opponent or in support of whom they support.  I have seen and read enough about Obama to just be sick to my stomach.  I am not trying to prove anything to anyone or teach anyone or get anyone on "my" side or try to get them to "see" what I see.  It's just way too draining.

    I do know one thing; I don't want to live in our fastly becoming Socialist nation.  I do not want to be a SLAVE to the government.  I do not want to be OWNED by the government; WHICH IS EXACTLY WHAT OBAMACARE WILL DO. Once the government has their hands in your healthcare; they have their hands on your life, FROM BIRTH TO DEATH.

    In Obama's OWN BOOK, he states he was raised by parents who were anti-colonialists, who were communist sympathizers.  His grandparents were, also.  He was mentored, from A YOUNG AGE by a member of the Communist Party.  THIS WAS NO SECRET AND TOLD BY OBAMA.  Yet, we ignore it?  We have become blind, all at the cost of our freedom, just to get handouts.  This is beyond reasonable.

    Obama's handling of this recent terrorist attack is disgusting, TO SAY THE LEAST.  His apologies to a nation who would love to eliminate us, is unacceptable.  It's weak and it presents us as weak.  His arrogance and narcissism has shown what he cares MORE about, than our woes.  His giving 1.5 billion dollars to the Muslim Brotherhood (who are NOT OUR FRIENDS...they support the Taliban and they dispise THE USA) and allowing these terrorist supporters IN THE WHITE HOUSE, THREE TIMES, for meetings; yet not attending any briefings on our own defense, shows me exactly what Obama is.


    He IS THE ENEMY.  You don't have to like what I say or agree.  See, I am a Libertarian.  I believe in "to each his own".  I'm not looking for people to agree or disagree with me.  I am okay WITH MY TRUTH and what I know.  I see.  I am no longer blinded by his lies (which he's been caught in SO MANY) and his deceit.  I was happy when he became President that day.  I believed the bullshit he told us. 

    HIS ACTIONS SHINE BRIGHTLY.  Anyone who cannot see what he is and what he is TRYING TO DO, DOESN'T WANT TO SEE. 

    It has NEVER been about race...and it's a weak argument and an insult to intelligence to even think there is NOTHING wrong with Obama except that people are racist against his skin color.  What a joke.

    I'm black.  What would that make me?  A traitor to my people?  I hate what I am or black men or some shit like that? 


    I see this debate heading to a lot of bad things and I've said what I have to say and I thank you all....


    I will be voting for Romney.  Not only because I think he is a better candidate for the job (and a lot MORE QUALIFIED)...but, because he is TRANSPARENT as Obama IS NOT.  He wouldn't be my first choice; as Ron Paul would be.  He is the ONLY choice to get Obama the hell out!

    Him swaying everyone to his side and winning the election.

    Quoting Mommy_of_Riley:

    I'm upset that they gave Johnson his "to do list" and he qualifies to debate but they still won't let him in.



    What are they so scared of?!?!
