The US government is no longer for the people. The government is waging war on the middle class. Its policies to vastly increase the riches of the wealthy elite have the direct effect of reducing the quality of life and discretionary income of the middle class, and subjugating it. The US government has become the enemy of the people. It is doing to the middle class exactly the same thing that the developed nations, through the international lending agencies, are doing to the third-world countries miring them so deep in debt (through compound interest and debt-based money) so that they can never escape, are under total control, and are paying all of their discretionary income as interest.

Well it looks like we get another 4 years of government handouts and increased tax write offs for big business. How does anyone plan on sustaining an economy when all they do is give Sh#t away. Not to mention cut defense spending to make us a poor helpless country so China can just knock right on our door and take what they want. Good Job America. Minorities have got what they want, more food stamps, more tax breaks for children, more free lunches, more free everything. Hell lets just open the borders and let everyone in and give them free stuff too. SOme states passed laws allowing free or reduced in state college tuition for children of illegal immigrants !!!! Does anyone even care anymore? It really is sickening.

You really paid no attention at all did you. Romney wanted to cut people off welfare and government aid that didnt deserve it. He wanted to help the middle and upper class that is the back bone of this country. Obama wanted all of the votes from the lower class , thats why he catered his advertising towards the welfare crowd and make Romney look like someone who only cares about rich people. In the lower classes mind everyone is richer than them and Obama feels thier pain. Its a disgrace really.

We will never get this guy outta office because every black person in africa, america sorry , will continue to vote for him based on race. He could nuke the united states and the minorities will still support him.

I am a 53 yr old. I was blessed greatly in the fact I raised all my children with out ANY government aid what so ever. STILL, I have never referred to welfare recipients as "Low class". Yes, there are those who choose to abuse the system. However, there are many who take the help and try to better themselves with a college education and other self help programs. They should NEVER be referred to as "LOW CLASS" for any reason. Also, it may surprise you to know that I do have black friends who DID not vote for Obama. That was a rude, not to mention racist thing to say. Those remarks are where the "disgrace" lies.

they obviously didn't aim to insult anyone by saying "low class" there are three categories of monetary statues, it's not racist, it's just what you make for a living! Low class- under 50,000 a year, middle class under 250,000 and upper class 250,000 plus. You owe them an apology as clearly you as a 53 yr old, needs more education. Also welfare fraud is real and rampant at this time. Look around you!

I was under the impression that there was 3 classes as well, upper , middle and lower. Not an insult. Do I get mad when people call me white, no because I am. If I make under 33k a year that puts me in a lower classification as far as the government goes. If the shoe fits ....

Well now...Yes I could probably be a little more educated. Who couldn't. However,her wording made it very clear it was meant as an insult. I am educated enough to understand that. "Welfare crowd" ???? Seriously ! States that blacks would vote Obama just because he is Black? Come on now.

I would bet plenty of money on the fact that the majority of blacks did vote based on race alone and never even paid attention to his policies. Just look at the DC mayoral races when Marion Barry was in office and running for office. Blacks put him back in office, by vote , after he was busted smoking crack with prostitutes. Why, because he played a black card and said that he was set up by the white man. No matter what Obama does he will always be able to play that card and get a sympothy vote from minorities. He will never be out of office and if they could , minorities would keep voting him in until he dies.

First of all I will correct you it is far from the upper and middle class who made this country.....it is the lower class as you state who were immigrants that worked hard everyday for .10 cents a day to make those huge companies that the so called upper class sit at. It is still the LOWER class who work for minimal pay for the suits who sit behind a desk and hold a pencil or phone. If not for those lower class the huge companies would fall.
As for welfare if you can spend your life never needing the help that is awesome. But I know way to many lower class hard working people who work every day scrubbing floors digging out pits or taking life risks who make about 8 dollars an hour who need a lil support. I agree with the fact that those who are totally living on a government check and food stamps (not disablitiy or ss)should be ripped off of it and made to work like the rest of the lower class.
But for you to say that it is the UPPER and MIDDLE class who make this country well maybe you should walk on the other side of life and see how hard most of the lower class do work for alot less than most suits.

As for which on made president and what he will do MAYBE you all should go back and read who actually decides what is or is not gonna be done. The house makes all the decesions it is up the house really whether a law is voted in or out. A president does not get to make all the decesions regardless of what john q public thinks.
So before you start getting all high and mighty about who is president did you bother to pay attention to those in the house?

HEY GUESS WHAT? I have a big surprise and shocking new, but let us keep his big secret ok? OBAMA IS NOT THE FIRST AFRICAN AMERICAN OR BLACK PRESIDENT. HE IS THE FIRT BI-racial president With pretty brown skin and much easier on the eyes than romney, But Obama, he got as much white in him as we do. We just heinz 57 and he is oreo. Haha. Honestly, our house hold voted for Romney, but we liked Obama as a person, we are a middle class family and we did feel the hit! OUR HOME WENT FROM 82,000 INCOME TO 45,300. We lost a lot gave up a lot and sacrificed more then we wanted. But because we have never been eligible for handouts we survived. We learned to live on cheaper budget and we we're still able to keep our gym memberships. Why keep them? We took showers there which saved me on my water bill, we have a theater room and they always had newest movies available to watch, we exercized longer and more often, my tanning was included and once a week I done my laundry there as well, laundry was a bonus because opened 24-6 and my friend worked there. But all of that for 30 amonth, But we are rising back up at 68,500 now, Like my gram said, cream always rises to the top no matter how dark the coffee is. ;-O And I now do all my laundry at home again, I did not abuse the gift of a free hand out, and This Christmas the owner of the gym will receive what I cost him and some.
