Look at president's disastrous record

Success - Article sent! close

I plead with anyone thinking of voting for President Obama to research his background and look at his current term for "changes" he promised: U.S. national debt has increased by 32 percent, failed banks have increased by 17 percent, poverty rate has increased by 9 percent, recipients of unemployment benefits has increased by 22 percent, recipients of food stamps has increased by 35 percent, federal employment has increased by 2 percent. Obama's health care plan will require the hiring of 60,000 people at the IRS to audit businesses and individuals in order to ascertain the penalties required to be paid for noncompliance.

Obama's administration has stalled the job-producing Keystone pipeline, has supported a secretly negotiated maritime boundary agreement giving Russia seven resource-laden islands in the Arctic Ocean and Bering Sea which include the tens of thousands of square miles of oil-rich seabed's surrounding the islands -- an estimate of billions of barrels of oil, has supported the DREAM Act -- amnesty for illegals, is supporting gay marriage and government/taxpayer paid abortions, continues to support government/taxpayer paid cellphones for low income people, and many other socialistic programs.

Obama hasn't work in private industry -- he's always worked for foundations or government-related organizations. While serving in the Illinois and U.S. Senate, Obama was such a weak representative, he voted "present" instead of yea or nay over 150 times.

Obama supports the United Nations Small Arms Treaty which would override our Second Amendment, which allows for our right to have guns to protect ourselves. A vote for Obama is a vote for the continuing deterioration of the economic and moral standards of America and the restriction of our individual rights.
