what the governors have to do is show they have a pair of ball and tell the special interest NO!! Slash the budget get tough on waste crack down on illegals. Find out where the bleeding is and stop it!!

The the governors have to reduce regulation and do a huge stimulus in massive tax cuts to both business and individuals.

State's should decide what they want and what they don't want.

Why encourage those who could get a job; to go on unemployment?
Anybody receiving unemployment should be doing community service to help.

Gee, Obama ....oh, sorry Nancy "stillbrow" Pelosi forgot to include the need to do some work in order to get unemployment funds.

Put them to work painting graffiti, clearing out debris on vacant lots, planting landscape material, pressure cleaning dirty sidewalks, cleaning park restrooms, mowing grass.

If they want compensation from the government, the government must insist on reciprocal work for the community, city, and state they reside in.

What's wrong with these lawmakers?

Vote in local, state and federal races to put in candidates that don't give your money away, rush through legislature, and do not think things through.

The legislators, commissioners, councilmen, school board members must make responsible fiscal decisions.

There are only 8-9 percent who are in foreclosure. The rest of us pay our mortgages. Those who fail are rewarded by this president.

Are you angry about that? The president is hoping that the moral 90% of mortgage payers will not decide to forgo paying their mortgages so that they can then claim they need government assistance.

The MORAL HAZARD is what Obama is hoping doesn't occur. That others stop paying their mortgages to get government assistance.

What the 90% needs to do is start voting for the candidates on ALL levels of government that will start to reward those who do the right thing, not the wrong thing.

All those that charged, bought and spoiled themselves will have their "bills" paid by taxpayers.(They still get to keep all they bought) though we pay the bill.

2010 vote out democrats, those " 'rats " have supported the wrong cause. Support candidates that allow working people to keep their money.

Obama and his ilk should be voted out of office.

But beware, Obama has rigged the stimulus to almost run out just before the 2012 election. DON'T BE FOOLED TWICE!!

Vote for governors who are fiscally responsible and who isn't afraid of the media's focus, but secure in their beliefs.

Remember the Civil War?
The Southern States seem to not want the shackles of the Federal Government on them again!
Whenever the States take Fed $$(in this case, fake,Obama money), the States have control placed upon them by the Federal Government. Isn't it great that the Southern Governors don't want this Socialist Handout!! These largely racially black states did not even vote for Obama!! Maybe I will retire to one of those states to escape OBAMA-PELOSI-REID-ism !! True Conservatives must take back this country or we are forever doomed. This is a fact, not an opinion. Socialism, sucks. I work hard every day, but with the Obama Socialist Conversion under way, why shouldn't I stay home and do nothing and just vegetate? This is the lifestyle he is enlarging and empowering in this USSA (third world country). Obama is weak in foreign affairs, and we will be attacked very soon by our vicious enemies!!
Start discussing POLITICS at your dinner table again! Be Passionate! Do not let Ultra-Liberal Teachers, Thinkers,or Elitists sway you or your families opinions. Socialism looks nice on paper, but it is one of the worst plans in reality. It creates a small rich class and a huge poor class. Obama wants to keep all of us as uneducated and ignorant as he can. Educated people know that he has flawed ideas (what few ideas he can actually verbalize or conceptualize)
Vote out these weirdo creeps before it is too late!! Massive Tax Cuts for Big Business!! Massive Tax Cuts for all the people. We are the government, not YOU, Obama!!! This "aint socialism yet!" Fight these people by sending dollars to true Conservative candidates and pulling the lever for them. Read, Get involved and God Save The United States!!
