Obama can continue to implement his socialist policies now that he's re-elected. I wonder if his voter really know why they're voting for him. I hope they're not voting for him simply because he's black, that would be a terrible lapse of judgment. I've lived in Europe and I've seen what socialism looks like. I've experienced social medicine, and it's not good! Things won't be getting better anytime soon. SMH

A little advice to Republicans. Should you work with the President and adopt a tax policy on people making 250,000 dollars or more, you would be a formidable foe come 2016. California is using the same tax policy that the President is asking for and their economy compares to another country. Personally I hope Congress lets the die-hard Tea Party dictate their tax policies. The Republican Party is in shambles and further stall tactics will destroy their chances in 2014 elections. The Speaker of the House in Congress John Boehner is telling Republican Members to fall in line, as if for a tax fight. Good forward fellow Democrats in the US Senate you and President Obama have the will of the American people behind you. Draw the battle lines again, apparently Romney's sound licking did not teach an unpopular Congress a thing. Another stand-off with President Obama will be political suicide. Choose your own poison Republicans in Congress let Donald Trump guide the reins. Democrats in US Senate are dug in and well supplied with American popularity.

Now you don't REALLY think that over 93% of Blacks voted for Obama both in 2008 and in 2012 simply because he's Black, do you? Bwhahahahahahahahahahahaha...

GOD: THE FINAL JUDGE
A CHRISTIAN RESPONSE TO OBAMA VICTORY
Exclusive: Joel Richardson notes
'There is a day of justice' for corrupt leaders

In light of President Obama’s re-election, it is essential to briefly detail some of the reasons why Christians should rise above the depression and hopelessness that has gripped so many American conservatives.

In the afterglow of Obama’s victory, Ayman al-Zawahiri, Ayatollah Khamenei, Vladimir Putin and Chris Matthews, as well as millions of pot-heads, sodomites, pro-aborts and all common moochers, are sharing a collective thrill. The American people by a clear majority have rejected fiscal responsibility, energy independence, national security, border security, traditional family values, and worst of all, standing with the most defenseless and innocent among us. Barack Obama’s re-election is a complete political, economic, moral, social and spiritual catastrophe.

But despite the very real implications of America’s downfall, Christians have far more substantial hope and reason to remain joyful.

“By faith he made his home in the promised land like a stranger in a foreign country; he lived in tents, as did Isaac and Jacob, who were heirs with him of the same promise. For he was looking forward to the city with foundations, whose architect and builder is God.”[Hebrews 11:9-10]

For now, my country is governed by a man many of us feel is a truly unrighteous individual, a race-baiter, a divider, a liar, a destroyer. And while I would not suppose to truly know anyone’s heart, I do take great comfort in the fact that there is one who knows the hearts of all people and who has promised a day of justice for all of the earth. So while I will continue to stand and fight for this great nation, even believing that there is yet hope for repentance, revival and restoration, as I watch this beautiful country slip away and devolve into something almost unrecognizable, I take great comfort in knowing that a heavenly country lies ahead.

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”[Romans 15:13]

Intentional Pitfall #1: Robbing Peter to Pay Paul

ObamaCare essentially 'robs Peter to pay Paul'. How?

Well, if you're a senior, you'll be fleeced by the $716 billion in Medicare cuts designed to substantially fund the ObamaCare plan over the next decade.

As you'll read in the ObamaCare Survival Guide, the biggest Medicare spending cuts will come in two key areas you need to know about in order to protect yourself.

And that's just the beginning ...

Intentional Pitfall #2: Insurance Companies Free to
Pass On Increased Costs

Under the new ObamaCare mandates, insurance companies will have free rein to pass on their increased costs to you in the form of:

Higher premiums
Higher co-pays
Higher deductibles
There are no specific price controls to keep the insurance industry in check. Even AARP, the powerful lobby representing American seniors, has already increased the health insurance premiums of its employees from 8 to 13%.

Intentional Pitfall #3: Widespread Doctor Shortage Expected

While many Americans are unhappy with ObamaCare, doctors have been particularly angry. The earning potential of doctors is expected to dwindle due to lowered payment rates for Medicare, among other things. Up to 40% of physicians could retire or seek a non-clinical or even a non-medical job.

And with 30 million more Americans on healthcare insurance plans, not only could there be a medical 'brain drain', but also long drives and long waits to see a doctor.

Intentional Pitfall #4: Delayed Implementation and
Hundreds of Unwritten Rules

Shockingly, many of the rules and regulations needed to make the new healthcare system function correctly haven't even been written yet. And as costs inevitably balloon higher than expected, benefits for consumers are likely to degrade significantly, particularly for seniors, the highest users of healthcare services.

Intentional Pitfall #5: Unelected Government Officials Will
Have Total Control to Make Decisions about Your Healthcare

"Healthcare commissars" who don't have to worry about being elected by the American people will have undemocratic, totalitarian powers to cut Medicare spending and make decisions on your behalf as a so-called Independent Payment Advisory Board.

And this is just the tip of the iceberg ...

Insurance companies who raise their rates, will have fewer customers. AARP is a corporation just like any other - if you applaud Papa Johns Pizza for 'standing up to Obama' by cutting employee hours to dodge the new rules, you should be overjoyed that AARP is exhibiting conservative 'values' as well. If doctors are in the profession for the money, they NEED to enter another profession. And Congress will STILL have control of the purse strings, regardless of the 'recommendations' of the so-called 'commissars'. Totalitarian policies? The insurance companies used to call those "Pre-exisiting Conditions."

It's a well known fact that optimists live longer than pessimists. If a glass-half-empty is your gig, more power to you - but if you lighten up, your medical costs will likely go down.

Points to ponder...

yeah, I sure do, and its sad really. People should really learn about what the candidate stands for before they just vote for him based on his ethnicity. But hey, at least you can have your free birth control and Obama phones.
