4. Do you understand that the DEMOCRATS have no plan to balance the federal budget?
Do you understand that 2 of the last 3 Repubs have tripled the deficits -
reagan took it from under $1T to 3.5,
bush jr took it from $3.5 to 10.5 and put us in a war , started TARP without accountability and gave us the unfunded Medicare part D This means he is primarily responsible for the deficits that increased under Obama.
What Obama is responsible for would be expanding Afghanistan, and spending to protect the economy which was about to land us in the worse depression ever. Did he spend ...yes, but out of a need to do what he can to revive an almost dead economy.
The only balanced budget came from Clinton (D)
Bush spent the surplus Clinton created vs reducing the deficit.
SO tell me, with a history of nothing but reckless spending and never balancing a budget, WHY would you trust a Repub with the gov again? The last time nearly crushed us... can we afford that again?
That is assuming you are not supporting Ron Paul who clearly has a plan to reduce the size of gov spending and eliminating he deficit. (but it will be the most painful economic lesson ever)
I was a Nader supporter btw and did not vote for Obama, Here are my likes and dislikes:
Saved the housing industry
reduced the number of foreclosures
supports gay marriage - That is courageous and the right thing to do
Got Osama, and 27 other top Al Quaida officials
invested in alternate energies
Ryan White Act
kept taxes low
provided an environment where the stock market recovered
Used drones vs placing soldiers in harms way
Ended the war with no point
Saved the auto industry and our economy
Outstanding foreign relations
apparently is faithful to his wife (not really required but nice to see)
Affordable Health Care Act
He actually donates to charities ( about 20%)
He works for the people more than most have....
kept Patriot Act
Didn't end the war sooner (but got osama and others as a result)
hasn't invested enough in alternate energies
promotes nuclear power
Expanded war (but did make more head way)
is expanding our bases worldwide
hasn't eliminated the Federal Reserve
Kept Bernake, and Geitner
Didn't prosecute the previous administration
BAD for whistle blowers
prosecution of Bradley Manning
Hasn't killed off Medicare part D
Has not restored the Constitution and liberties removed from previous administrations
Didn't get the insurance companies outof the National Health Care Act. ( They alone are responsible for the rising costs of healthcare)
So I would not hesitate to support him in November. ... Though I would consider harder against Ron Paul. Romney is not even a question - He shows poor judgment through out his life, changes opinion as soon as he thinks it yields votes. Has NO experience with foreign relations, NO experience running a business - he just funded the take overs so he could gut them for a profit... as I would expect him to do as President, he will cater to the rich and special interests.
Ron Paul - is consistent with his beliefs , a man of character, understands government and what went wrong, supports the Constitution and would restore it, would eliminate the Fed reserve.
Too conservative on social issues, would make abortion illegal (even though he is for gov staying out of the peoples affairs) He would reduce the size of Gov which would be painful, unemployment would rise dramatically
So there ya go....those are my answers...
