With the re-election of Obama a few things will rev up.

1) Socialism here we come

2) National debt will spiral out of control

3) Not enough tax payers to cover non taxpayers

4) New wave of entitlements to re-distribute the wealth

5) US headed to third world status

6) Unemployment will surge to double digits

7) America was on the rim of the toilet, with the re-election America is now in the toilet bowl

8) All great empires cease, United States had a 200 hundred year plus advantage

Sorry but I think the American Dream is alive and well for those willing to work. The people who abuse the system are the same ones who have been doing it for years.

Are you aware unemployment in America is officially 8% then factor in the real number of unemployed at 26% that brings unemployment up to 34% The way the government calculates 8% that is the number of people drawing unemployment wages so if your not getting a check your not unemployed. As for me I am self employed with a couple dollars but that does not cloud my thoughts of plenty of others scrounging daily with an uncertain future. If you own a cell phone read your bill there is a charge on there that every cell phone payer in America pays to fund the free welfare phones they hand out with 250 minutes a month that renews itself automatically each month. 48 million american's are on food stamps . And you say " those willing to work " then what do you call people sending out endless resumes,interviews,networking aren't those people willing to work. The situation that we have at present is a failure with presedential leadership and your solution is, need to be willing to work, well that's not so simple with an onslaught of jobs being sent out of the country on a daily basis. Try this test- go to Walmart and try to purchase (1) one item manufactured in America. Romney wanted to reverse the trend of jobs leaving America Obomo encourages it. News Flash dry cleaners in America are reporting a shortage of metal coat hangers, Vietnam can't keep up with demand. Can't we here in AMERICA even manufactuer a damn coat hanger. That would provide some jobs for those people you refer to as " willing to work "
sorry

Just for fun, I will find 20 things made in America, and people need to take jobs they think they are too good for. Do you watch fox news? Either way, nobody will effect the next four years of your life as much as you do. Self employed as well here, been in business since 1997, and still slow in the summer, and When school starts, but busy the rest of The time as always. Only fired one person, had some good people quit for a better job. Had most of the same people for years, and very happy. I see people blow money everyday, just like they always have. People love to complain, hate to work together, no matter who is president. I see people who are prospering everyday, and I see people who will never work. The American dream is there for those who want it.

The experience of the past three decades shows that for the GOP, there are only two certainties in life: debt and tax cuts. But you'd never know that watching the last Republican National Convention, where a massive ticking debt clock and obvious falsehoods like "President Obama has doubled the national debt" nevertheless dominate the proceedings.

Of course, the "Not Intended to Be a Factual Statement Party" long ago concluded that the truth will not set them free. So when Romney pollster Neil Newhouse insisted "We're not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact-checkers," he was merely confirming the Republicans' standard operating procedure now in place for over 30 years.
They made Mitt Romney their official nominee for President of the United States, here are 15 things the GOP doesn't want you to know about taxes and the debt.

*George W. Bush Doubled the National Debt

Reagan Raised Debt Ceiling 17 Times,

Bush seven Tax Cuts Don't Pay for Themselves

Almost All Working Americans Pay Taxes

The GOP's "Job Creators" Don't Create Jobs

Low Capital Gains Taxes Fuel Income Inequality...
...But Not Investment

The Estate Tax Has Virtually No Impact on Family Farms and Businesses

Income Inequality Has Reached an 80 Year High...
...While the Federal Tax Burden Has Hit a 60 Year Low
Romney-Ryan Plan Another Massive Tax Cut Windfall for the Wealthy

Romney, Ryan Won't Say Which of the $1 Trillion in Tax Breaks GOP Will End

Romney-Ryan Will Add More Debt Than President Obama

47% of Americans pay no taxes, 53% do. It is quite clear the citizens have voted for a president that wants the government to take care of them. Same thing happened in Cuba 1959 when communism was ruled law of the land.
The stage is set for America to be ruled under a dictatorship. First order of business was to inject socialism (DONE) then trample the constitution (DONE) then institute mandatory health care (DONE) then make a large percentage of Americans dependent on the government to exist (DONE)
Now next is to install a dictatorship to rule our lives.
In a socialist/communist society the government will ration to you all what they think are you basic living needs.
90 miles off the coast of Florida lies Cuba under dictatorship run by Castro, 53 years later and they can't break the cycle.
America after today will never be the same. You do not to to agree with me, WATCH THE NEXT 4 YEARS UNFOLD!!!!!!!!!!

Turn off Faux News and find out the real reason for the Dow. It's because of the European debt crisis.

I refuse to believe there are people that actually believe the stuff like Job Done posted. I think Both sides have good ideas and bad ideas. I agree wtih republicans on some issues and I agree with democrats on some issues. Yet I'm almost FORCED to call myself a democrat for fear people will think I believe the same kind of bullshit Fox news Spews out every single day. Its just Lies. Outright Lies and Not even good lies.. Just the most insane retarded thing they can say. Its like watching a jerry springer episode and believeing that shit is real. AND its the same people that are constantly showing thier crazy that never seem to have any real facts. Like I think Obama has dne a semi decent job so far. In fact his major flaw to me is that he was not near aggressive enough. Problem is there is no way to really know. Very little a president can do will actually be felt right away. In fact most things he does wont be felt til he's well into his 2nd term. I don't believe anyone Republican or Democrat could have fixed Our problems in such a short time. If ya want to Rant about how ya don't agree with Obama and such then thats fine.. Just dont a nut job.. Learn the issues and figure out where you stand and Why Obama has screwed them up. Then argue the truth instead of just screaming that Obama is the devil and we are all gonne die.

Also I have a lot invested in the market and Obama is a major reason for the fall today. However he is not the only reason. The fuel was already there. Obama was just the match. I actually expected this. A lot of people did. Monday the market climbed as people bought in thinking that Romney was going to win and they would then cash out today. There are a lot of Economic issues we are headed towards and its expected Romney would have been the better choice for the money. Obama winning set off a panic and created a mess. The good news is I expect within the next day or 2 we will see it bounce back the other way when people calm down and realize there are a lot of good stocks selling very cheap right now.

I believe that there were other folks in DC who did nothing to help in any way. They were too busy having to raise an enormous amount of money for their political party before that party's coffers would open to help them keep their seats. I don't think anyone has all the answers, but if parties refuse to even consider all sides of an issue, the mess will continue. Every one of them should be required to live & support their families on 125% of the poverty line, based on household size for at least 2 months. I think that might get some movement on many issues.

Sounds like you need to take a trip to Nashville to talk to the Republican controlled state house and demand jobs for our state!
Kentucky, Mississippi, Tennessee etc. are the biggest states for assistance. They are also the most Republican!

You will see a dramatic decrease in local small businesses. The cost of taxes and insurance will close doors. Why ? Major tax breaks for larger business who import trash from china and mexico.
Prime example: At the end of the year everyone dependent on Gov. funding will get checks per number of children, most of this money will be spent on chinese made flat screen tv's from your local wal-mart, and rims that cost 10x more than the car they are on.
It's our own fault...sheeple sit in front of the tv every night eating cheetos and layin down that fat-ass dirty dollar for everything the tv or internet tells them to buy. Buy American,don't take handouts, don't spend what you don't have and many of these problems will cease. The only BS that can be fed to you....is what you want to eat.
Obama...Romney doesn't matter the People run this country.

I agree that we need massive welfare reform. I myself know way too many people sitting drawing a government check that could be working. Perhaps they are not fit for digging holes or lifting heavy objects BUT they could stand behind a counter somewhere.

As far as Taxes and Insurance. Obama is for giving tax cuts to Small Business. Why would you think a small business would get any less of a cut than a larger business? Why would a small business have to may anymore for insurance than a larger business.

As far as Buying American? Really?#1 the stuff made in America Costs Twice as much. BUT thats not even the big issue for me. The bigger issue is that Its REAL REAL hard to find certain items that are made in America and when you do they are made out of such crap so they can attempt to compete with the overseas prices that they just fall apart.

The option of buying American is just not there anymore. Very few products to choose from. The Free trade acts, unions, and minimum wage laws have slowly destroyed our Manufacturing jobs.

The only thing that should decide how much someone gets paid is supply and demand. When you disrupt this process with laws that force employers to pay more than they would otherwise need to then to compensate they must raise the price of the end product. When you then pass laws that allow products from places that do not have these laws in effect to enter the country without any penalty its just a matter of time before you find yourself in the spot we are in now. UNtil you do something that will allow us to compete with the rest of the world the term Buy American is just a joke.

All good points, I agree with you.
Let me repeat...Buy American...don't take handouts....don't spend what you don't have.
Sure it makes life harder, not as many choices, but it's the only way. Refuse-Resist they can't sell you what you don't buy.
Don't give in to the oppressed mentality.
