The election of 2012 is coming on fast ––– 10.5 months. So, what are the reasons to vote Republican in order to make Barack Hussein Obama A one-term president? Here are my reasons:
1. ObamaCare must be repealed and replaced.
––––rationing of care by the government
––––paid for (initially) by cutting half $1 trillion from Medicare
––––eventually will further bankrupt the country with the estimated billions of dollars increase in healthcare to pay for the new entitlement
2. Enormous growth of government resulting in a burgeoning deficit now more than $15 trillion and Obama is asking for a further increase in the debt limit.
––––Bush added four trillion dollars to the deficit in eight years
––––Obama and the Democrats (remember they took control of Congress in 2006) have added 8-$10 trillion to the deficit in five years
3. Refusal to open the KeystoneXL pipeline from Alberta, Canada to Texas preventing the addition of 20,000 jobs to the United States economy.
4. A blizzard of regulations handcuffing the expansion of businesses and jobs––– see Dodd-Frank.
5. The misery index is at an all-time high.
6. 43% of the unemployed have been out of a job for more than six months.
7. This administration has a rogue view of the Constitution ––– see recess appointments, the arrogance of the Obama Justice Department, etc.
8. This administration stands for the hegemony of government.
9. Fall of the freedom of business index from fifth-place in the world to tenth place, and falling.
10. Failed economic policy on all levels ––– unemployment at 8.5% (actually 12.5% or more if those who have stopped looking for work are included)
11. Failure to address the major source of the ballooning deficit, namely entitlements (Medicare alone has a $60 trillion unfunded liability) and the administration has not sought methods to solve the inherent problems that exist in these entitlements.
12. A dangerous foreign policy
––––severe reductions planned in the military at a time when we face serious threats from Iran, North Korea, Russia, China, etc.
––––“leading from behind”
––––failure to stop Iran’s drive for nuclear weapons
––––arrogance toward our allies and failure to stand up to our enemies
––––against the recommendations of his top military, the precipitous withdrawal of troops from Iraq, which has threatened to plunge Iraq into a disastrous civil war and domination by Iran.
I’ve probably left out a great deal . But you get the idea.
