4 years of Obama has weighed on us

Success - Article sent! close

Last evening after watching Bill O'Reilly and a few other "talking heads," I asked myself, "How could anyone in their right mind vote to give four more years to Barack Obama?" Could they have taken one of the astronauts trip to the moon, and just returned four years later?" Maybe, they injured themselves lifting weights by dropping one on their heads.

In a sincere effort to bring them up to date, while hopefully saving our republic, I offer the following: Without President Obama over 17 million more people would be employed. Over $400 billion earned by these missing employees would have been there to stimulate our economy. Over $11 billion contributed to Medicare, and $48 billion to Social Security. Both critically needed at this time. Sadly, since 1973, without abortion on demand, we would have had another 53 million alive and well. They would be purchasing goods and services, while their earnings would have provided the missing contributions now needed to fund Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. In 1940 when the sanctity of life prevailed, we had 159 workers for each retiree. Today, after 39 years of abortion, only two.

Don't count on Obama's sudden evolving on homosexual "marriage" to help. That is not the answer spiritually or economically. No new job fillers and homebuyers coming from his new brand of faux "marriage." One would hope that the time-tested idioms "be careful for what you wish for, you just might get it," and "those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it," would surely enter into the voters' decisions in November. God help us if it doesn't. Without a doubt, the most important election in centuries. Use your vote carefully, my friends.
