Alright then, please enlighten me with facts or with any information that can debunk anything that I have put on here. I am very open minded and will read it with interest!
But let's start with real facts; liberal dems are condoning and supporting 'gay marriage', increasing taxes on the rich, increasing government spending to unsustainable levels, etc. I know that I've missed a bunch of items, this is just the tip of the iceberg. Please, if you can enlighten me, I am waiting...
How are those "facts?" Obama has spent less than any president in many decades. Look that real fact up. He definitely hasn't spent to unsustainable levels. You're thinking about Bush, remember? You know how Republicans are for smaller government, yet they're always the ones adding to government and out of control spending, huge deficits, and leaving huge problems every time they leave office. Just check those facts also, when you're trying to convince us that Obama's done us so much harm. He's done a spectacular job as president considering that he has a Republican congress that's done this country nothing but harm since 2010.

The deficit is not shrinking because we have no manufacturing industry left in this country. And please enlighten us on skyrocketed fed spending. What are you talking about? Come back with some facts before you start spreading more rumors.

Oh the true uninformed...To get the facts about the amount of spending under President Obama you need to go to this article. It
s not from Fox News, but from this blog...

If you are going to cite facts, at least do the research to back it up. I happen to watch all news, not only Fox. I am by no means a party shill, I am only a truly informed voter. I don't make my decisions based on emotion, but rather on fact. Maybe you should do the same.
I can't believe what you wrote, that you make decisions based on facts, not just Fox News. You must be the one rare Republican who even knows what the word "fact" means, if you really do.

I'm still trying to understand why working class people vote Republican. It's truly an oxymoron. Republicans DON'T care about you at all. WHY can't you people understand this?

What really concerns me is the fact that people believe that one party or another can make things right. Conservative standpoints lean toward traditional marriage, pro-life and capitalism; while the the liberal sides with pro-"choice", gay marriage and socaialism. If you differ with me, that's your choice. The fact remains that we ARE leaning more toward a socialist nations faster than ever before... ie.. more pay for less work., no work for pay., public healthcare (which in fact, has been a failure in most nations) and "gun control" (All statistics lead to more control = more crime.) The total package rests on the moral side of things. When you decide that God is no longer needed, He will remove himself; no nation can stand without the creator.
Take your religion elsewhere. What do you know about what God really wants?

I used to be a Democrat but i gave it up and became an Independent. That does not mean i will vote Independent only, just that i am fed up with the democratic party. They have became the party of the special interest groups like abortion and gay rights and so on. They are becoming more and more socialistic in nature and i am for sure against that ides. I was not for any bail outs and hand outs as a way of life. We must get the people back to work in order to get the tax revenue flow back into the governmental agencies. Ours rights are being taken away and government is growing way to fast. I am for smaller government and putting the people back to work, less hand outs and back to old values. Earlier i said i gave the Democratic party up, well actually the party took a direction that i could not be a part of. So it is the party that forced me to become Independent! And so be it!
Do you people even know what socialism is? You are on the internet. Why don't you look it up before you start saying Obama's a socialist? This site is so full of ignorance.

Obama Added More to National Debt in First 19 Months Than All Presidents from George Washington Through Reagan Combined. And for Bill Clinton, he was reaping the benefits of what Reagan started. I love how democrats think that trickle down economics didn't work because the effect was not immediate. It was called trickle down for a reason. I also love how they give Clinton the credit for the financial success of the nineties before he even instituted any policies or bills. He must have been magic.
Where are the facts behind your first statement? Obama has spent less during his presidency than any president in the last 60 years. Why don't you familiarize yourself with that fact? And Reagan's trickle down economics have never worked since he came up with the idea? If you think it works, show some evidence of it.

I try to vote for the lesser of two evils. And the demoncratic party is nothing but evil. 25 Years Ago We Had Reagan, Johnny Cash, and Bob Hope. Now We Have Obama, No Cash and No Hope. And for why the working man should vote for anyone other than a Demoncrat, NAFTA(thanks Clinton). Ross Perot, who argued that if NAFTA was passed, Americans would hear a "giant sucking sound" of American companies fleeing the United States for Mexico, where employees would work for less pay and without benefits. The pact, which took effect on January 1, 1994, created the world's largest free-trade zone. Now look at where the American jobs are.
Demoncrats=
-Pro Choice
-Pro Homosexual
-Anti Christ
-Anti Gun
To understand your own post, you need to look at the circumstances that surrounded Clinton at the time. Don't forget to take in the fact that he was under tremendous pressure to pass NAFTA BY THE REPUBLICANS. That's why we have NAFTA. And to who do you attribute our enslavement to China? Who will you put that one on? Again it was the Republicans and big business interests. Get to know the facts.

You're lucky to be able to pay taxes, which are necessary to running a country. I don't know where your numbers come from, but the rich don't pay the majority of taxes. They may be subject to specific tax rates, but they get out of paying anything close to what they are obligated for. It's the middle class and working poor who pay the taxes, don't kid yourself or anyone else.
the lower 49% of eager earners pay no federal income tax. Get your head out of the sand.

fact one. The democrats had control of the house, senate and whitehouse for his first two years in office. Fact two. The republicans only have control of the house, not the senate, so far.

fact. Bill Clinton campaigned for NAFTA. He and daddy Bush were both pro NAFTA, Ross Perot was not. If you are going to preach about facts then you need to look in the mirror first. If memory serves me right, the democrats had the majority in congress at that time. I could be wrong but I don't think so.

Unfortunately, these folks are very disillusioned about the reality our nation is facing. If we have four more years of Obama, we are going to be literally bankrupt as a nation. This country needs to hearken back to the times of the original patriots. I can only imagine what Washington, Jefferson, Franklin and the like would think of what we've become!

Would you please add a link or point us to these so called facts of yours? In my previous posts, I included links to actual articles and blogs. If you have these "facts", please document it on here for all of us to read. All of the articles and information I've been able to find completely dis-count what you're saying about Obama and spending. Maybe YOU need to familiarize yourself with the facts and quit drinking the Kool-aid spewed by the Leftist media!

Okay...to back up my previous post, here is another link to back up what I stated about Obama and spending. If you read the entire article, it starts talking about the last two years of President Bush's time in office with a DEMOCRATICALLY controlled Congress up to now. Please, take the time to actually read this...it's from a respected news source.

I'd rather be broke and free than ever assoiated with the Democrat communist party. Obama is a gun grabbing leftist whacko. Go ahead and vote for the commies! When the SHTF we'll know who all needs to be hanged for treason.
