Ask yourself if is nation better off
With the Nov. 6 presidential election fast approaching, from a personal level, it is always good to assess whether your household is better off than it was four years ago. More importantly, is our nation and the future of our nation better off?
The Obama administration is responsible for four years of $1 trillion plus budget deficits. Our labor force participation rate is at the lowest level it has been since 1981. Part-time jobs dominate the “employment numbers” with respect to meaningful job creation, and the number of folks who have simply given up looking for employment due to the dismal work environment is staggering.
The promises of this administration have been snake oil at best. How many families have lost their homes or are still struggling with the possibility of foreclosure? How many careers have been vanquished? How many family businesses have been crushed under a miserable economy and onerous government regulation?
“Hope and Change” was something the American people were promised in 2008. In 2012, it has become the breast plate of an inept coward who has taken this country to the precipice of insolvency and failure. And now he “needs another four years” to finish the job? Ineptitude isn't something to be admired and rewarded, it is something to be replaced.
I'm sorry. We can't afford another four years of the status quo. We have a country and our posterity to protect. Our future generations depend on responsible leadership, not a president who swipes an unlimited credit card, not a president who apologizes for the greatness that built America, and certainly not a leader of the free world who holds disdain for hard working Americans and their achievements.
Can you take a look into your child or your grandchild's eyes and tell them, “You will be better off because of the decision I made today”? You decide.
