“The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance.” Cicero – 55 BC
Wow, I mean over 2000 years ago they were warning of this in ROME. Now the US reads almost the same way. I don’t care whether you are a Republican or a Democrat the fact is our nation is disappearing. We are selling out to every politician that needs another vote. This country is on the brink and more people flood in everyday because we are known as a country of “hand outs”. I’m sorry folks but the inn is full until we get our general ledger balanced out and our costs under control. Our borders need to be buttoned up, our debt needs to be reduced and jobs need to come back to the United States. People that can work need to get up and work for a living. Those that need assistance shall and should get it but those those able minded and able bodied individuals that milk the system should no longer be allowed to.
Obama had 4 years to at least work on this and all we’ve seen him do is funnel billions of dollars away with little to no regard for the damage it would cause. He came to office when jobs were being shed by the thousands a day and yet he spent hardly anytime on the issue. Maybe he’s learned a lesson but I truly doubt it. All I know is that when Romney and Obama faced off the other night I saw one epic big business man who knows international policy and how to analyze and fix problems on one side and on the other….well a community organizer and a junior senator who rarely showed up.
Folks Obama doesn’t have a clue. “YES WE CAN” fell flat on its face because he’s not equipped to fight this fight. Most of my family are employed in health care professions and Obama care is the worst thing to hit since mad cow disease. Yes physicians are getting their wages cut but so will office staff, nurses, hospital management and many more we rely on. You don’t let a child drive a car because the child doesn’t know what he/she is doing. So why in the world would we let Obama have a second term? He can’t even answer questions about why he’s done certain things in the past 4 years because HE DOESN’T KNOW!
It’s not a political party thing it’s a “SAVE OUR COUNTRY” thing. This cluelessness must stop now.
I wished we lived in the clouds where wishes of cash redistribution was a good thing I really do but we don’t and it isn’t. We live on the ground where economies and troubles fall and fall hard and it takes real leaders and high intelligence to plow through and make tough decisions, take risks and ultimately create jobs. We need to get out of the entrepreneurs way and let our economy hum again.
If I didn’t sit on the front line of the hiring world I might have a different opinion or a less educated one. I’ve seen far to many people hit rock bottom because of the waywardness of our modern political leadership and it’s got to stop. Good hard working people that had their dreams crumble over night just need a solid job they can be proud of again. This will not happen under Obama. None of his policies help the private sector and that’s where our country is bleeding to death.
I know how I’m casting my VOTE but I guess my main point is that I hope EVERYONE gets out and votes with passion. Its an honor to help guide your country and a freedom that most don’t have. Please vote with knowledge please don’t vote with airy aspirations. Study the issues, learn the problems and hire the right candidate for the job.
