Obama makes it clear that he is not concerned with American small business owners and will tax them into oblivion so he can spend more however he chooses. I am curious, what are small business owners doing now? What will small business owners do if Obama stays in office. What will small business owners do if Romney gets elected.

Anyone who's ever been in "small business" understands, clearly, few earn above 250,000 a year. About 50% of new small businesses fail. These have been the facts for a very long time.

And even more interesting, most do not support Oboy, including me. Actually, none that I know personally do.

If you are small business and are not grossing more than $250,000 a year in sales, you are better off closing your doors.

1) Learn the difference between "gross" and "earn" (net).

2) This is blatantly untrue. There are any number of small service businesses with extremely low overhead that can be run with under 250K in sales and net a living for the owner-- house cleaning, dog walking, personal training businesses just to name a few.

People should be more interested in supporting themselves and their family well than in playing the lottery on extreme growth. About 1% of businesses started this year will grow to over 500 employees.

As another small business person who supports Obama-- I basically IGNORE who the president is and go about the business of DOING business. If you are sitting around waiting for Romney to become president (which looks like it won't happen) to "REALLY" do business you're probably a partisan hack and not much of a business person.

I don't know if you noticed but business has generated record profits under the current President. That's a trend I want to see continue.

It makes sense for small businesses to support Obama over Romney.

Small businesses depend on a strong middle class in order to remain successful. If everyone in their neighborhood is without a job or a stable/reasonable income, and those on the right plan to not only send more jobs overseas but also force fewer people to work longer hours for lower wages, then they wouldn't have a customer base to serve and would be forced to close their doors.

I'm referring to the neighborhood bars, diners, markets, cleaners, etc.

It is not the right or the left. It is the Progressive Globalist in both Parties that are the cancer, sending jobs overseas.
Remember it was Bill Clinton that signed both NAFTA and the China Free Trade Act, into law.
It was Ross Perot, that said you will hear a sucking sound and that will be jobs leaving the USA, for cheap labor abroad.....


Better learn Spanish or Chinese, if you want a workforce in the future!
