Mitt Romney is a gentleman. He gives away millions of dollars to charity. He is a man of great faith. He once served as a pastor at his Mormon church. Mitt loves his church and country. That’s a great thing in life. But in politics, it can be a disadvantage to be a nice guy.
So I’m going to say the things Mitt is too nice to say. As we fast approach election day 2012, I’m going to play the role of prosecutor and lay out the final “Indictment of Barack Obama.”
The American Dream is being destroyed by our President. It’s getting too late in the game to play nice, to not tell the raw unvarnished truth, for fear of offending someone. If we don’t tell the truth (and fast), we are going to lose America, capitalism, and our children’s future.
Let me start by stressing that President Obama may be a nice man too. He may be a good husband and father. He may love this country. He may think he is doing what is right. But the road to hell is paved with good intensions. Nice or not, Obama believes government has the answer to every problem. He believes in punishment of the successful (ie job creators). He believes in income redistribution. He believes in massive spending and debt. He believes in so many rules, regulations, and mandates, that no one can open a lemonade stand anymore without permission from government.
Those beliefs don’t work. The economy under Obama is breaking down. You don’t need to look far to prove these theories are disastrous. Europe has been following Obama’s plan for decades- big government, big unions, big spending, big taxes, big entitlements, big pensions, free healthcare, too many government employees, and unlimited spending on green energy and high speed rail. The result? Economic disaster on a grand scale. Greece, Italy, and Spain are enduring a tragedy few can comprehend. France is next. Someday we will read about this in history books.
America, under Obama, is following the exact same path.
Obama needs to be indicted by the American people on Tuesday. His theories need to be repudiated in a big way. Before it’s too late.
Here’s the case. Judge for yourselves:
*As of Election Day, unemployment is officially listed at 7.9%, the highest for any incumbent since FDR.
*More importantly, the REAL unemployment rate (including the under-employed and those who have given up looking)…is in the range of 15%…Higher than in most years of the Great Depression.
*Unemployment in the black community is 14.3%.
*Unemployment and under-employment for college graduates is a staggering 53%.
*The Labor Force Participation Rate among men is the lowest since 1948.
*Food stamp growth is 75% greater than job growth under Obama. 46 million Americans are now on food stamps.
*The record 11 million Americans on disability is larger than the population of a majority of states.
*Over 100 million Americans get entitlement checks. (Almost 1 out of every 3 Americans.)
*One sixth of all personal income in the USA is now provided by government.
*The housing collapse is now deeper than at the peak of the Great Depression.
*The net worth of the average American is down 40%.
*New business startups are at the lowest level in 30 years.
*The U.S. credit rating has been downgraded for first time in history.
We are experiencing UNIMAGINABLE economic wreckage, crisis and collapse from coast to coast.
None of this is a coincidence.
With 60,000 new rules, regulations, and mandates in only 3 years, Obama has turned the entire U.S. Economy into a “Hostile Work Environment.”
With a President that is openly hostile to private business, closely following Cloward and Piven’s plan to overwhelm the system with debt and entitlements, to purposely collapse the U.S. economy and weaken capitalism…
With Obama demonizing the wealthy and taunting entrepreneurs and financial risk-takers with “You didn’t build that”…
With the EPA attempting to put the coal industry completely out of business…
With thousands of new IRS agents hired to harass & intimidate business owners…
With massive new tax increases looming…
With 3000 pages of Obamacare containing 23 new taxes…
With 2000 pages of Dodd Frank making it much harder for banks to loan, or for businessmen to raise money…
With $115 TRILLION in debt and unfunded liabilities at the federal level…
With states, counties, and cities even more broke and insolvent than the federal government (the debt in Obama’s Cook County, Illinois is now an unimaginable $108 billion)…
It’s clear only one thing is working in America…Obama’s plan.
Mitt might be too nice to say it, but I will. Good intensions, or not, Obama is the man ruining our country for our children and grandchildren. This is the man hooking Americans on government handouts. This is the man declaring war on business owners, demonizing job creators, and destroying everything the Constitution was put in place to protect. This is a man making a mockery of what our Founding Fathers believed in.
Obama did not “save” the auto industry. He merely stole $25 billion from you and me (the taxpayers) to protect the pensions of union members who contributed tens of millions to his election. Then Obama used the power of government to gain revenge on his opponents- by allowing private sector autoworkers to lose their pensions and closing profitable auto dealerships owned by Republican contributors. This is all immoral, if not criminal.
It’s time to stop playing nice. Before we have no country left to defend…before we have no economy left to rebuild…before unions strangle the life out of the private sector…before the word “business owner” is either outlawed or extinct…before taxpayers are sucked dry to pay for a food stamp and unemployment benefits economy…before “free” healthcare adds trillions in debt to our children’s burden…before Obama’s extreme views on energy leave us all dependent on nations that hate America and support terrorism…before Obama’s takes away those guns and Bibles that he believes the middle class “clings to”…before Obama uses Executive Orders to render Congress and the Constitution meaningless…
Before every terrorist attack is given a politically correct name…before more victims are blamed when Islamic radicals slaughter them over a cartoon, book, or film…before every child is taught to remove God from their daily lives…before every Bible is permanently removed from our military bases and hospitals…before all religious celebrations, except Ramadan, are permanently removed from our White House…before more U.S. Ambassadors and Navy Seals are left to die with inadequate security, and no rescue attempt, in a foreign land…or before 6 million Israelis are wiped out in a second holocaust due to a foreign policy of apology and appeasement, or Obama’s indifference.
Mitt Romney is our last stand. Our line in the sand. For capitalism. For small business. For the American Dream. For our Judeo-Christian values. For our small businesses. For our children and grandchildren’s future. For the survival of the American Dream. And yes, for our guns and Bibles.
Forgive, but never forget.
Remember that Osama bin Laden is dead…and so is a United States border agent who died in the Fast and Furious scandal…and so is our Ambassador and 3 brave young men abandoned and left to die at our Libyan embassy…and so is the U.S. economy.
Remember that our kids and grandkids will still be paying the interest on that $25 billion bill to “save” GM and Chrysler 100 years from now- and they don’t even get a car.
Remember that even at this moment…as broke as America is…with over $100 trillion in debt and unfunded liabilities…with a $50 billion bill to repair New York and New Jersey from Hurricane Sandy…Obama is giving $450 million to the extremist, American-hating, Muslim Brotherhood leaders of Egypt.
Remember Obama denigrates those that cling to old fashioned ideas- God, country, faith, family, capitalism, and our American exceptionalism.
Remember Obama presided over a Democratic convention that booed God. Three times. Remember that image before you walk into that voting booth.
Now, let’s go out and reclaim our country.
It’s time to stop debating Obama. It’s time to indict him.
Good luck Mitt. And God Bless America.
