Ehh...I'm not ashamed to admit it. He seemed like the best choice at the time. I'm a Republican, but was completely turned off by McCain/Palin. I think the only ones who were on thier bandwagon were the sheep who follow a political party no matter who they are or how much they suck.
Does that mean you an Obama sheeple, because the last 4 Obama years have sucked even more than the previous four.

The Country is doomed. We can all argue till the cows come home, but nothing is going to change. Then again I shouldn't say that. More of our rights will be taken away and there will be more under handed sneaky changes made. You want change? America needs to take back America it's our right. Look it up people.

A few FACTS that you want to ignor-
1-Obama increased Support for Veterans: With so many soldiers coming home from Iraq and Iran with serious physical and mental health problems, yet facing long waits for services, increased 2010 Department of Veterans Affairs budget by 16 percent and 2011 budget by 10 percent. Also signed new GI bill offering $78 billion in tuition assistance over a decade, and provided multiple tax credits to encourage businesses to hire veterans.
2- Obama Kicked Banks Out of Federal Student Loan Program. He signed a measure in 2010 ending the wasteful decades-old practice of subsidizing banks to provide college loans. Starting July 2010 all students began getting their federal student loans directly from the federal government. Treasury will save $67 billion over ten years,$36 billion of which will go to expanding Pell Grants to lower-income students.
3-Obama let Space Shuttle Die and Killed Planned Moon Mission. He allowed the expensive ($1 billion per launch), badly designed, dangerous shuttle program to make its final launch on July 8, 2011. Cut off funding for even more bloated and problem-plagued Bush-era Constellation program to build moon base in favor of support for private-sector low-earth orbit ventures, research on new rocket technologies for long-distance manned flight missions, and unmanned space exploration, including the largest interplanetary rover ever launched, which will investigate Mars’s potential to support life.
4-Obama killed the F-22: In 2009, ended further purchases of Lockheed Martin single-seat, twin-engine, fighter aircraft, which cost $358 million apiece. Though the military had 187 built, the plane has never flown a single combat mission. Eliminating it saved $4 billion.
5-During Obama's administration, domestic energy production has increased. Shipments of gasoline, diesel fuel and other products surpassed imports by an average of 439,000 barrels a day in 2011, according to the department. Last year was the first time since 1949 that the U.S. was a net exporter. Crude-oil output exceeded 2 billion barrels for the first time since 2003.
“The U.S. has become the fastest-growing oil and natural- gas producing area of the world,” Edward L. Morse, Citigroup’s New York-based head of global commodities research, and half a dozen colleagues wrote in the report. Greater output from Canada and a rebound in Mexico point to bigger increases in North American production “than all of OPEC can sustain.”
The GOP launches relentless assaults against President Obama for claiming his anti-drilling policies are causing high gasoline prices.The claims couldn’t be further from the truth
There are many others-the GOP spinners will lie and deceive to many who won't actually check facts. If you recieve your information from Fox and Rush Limbaugh only, you are feeding your own ignorance. Open your mind-you might find the truth.
Pray to Obama for a shovel-ready job.

The Country is doomed only if we allow Republicans to keep making the wealthy wealthier on the backs of vets, the middle class, the poor, adn those who want work but can't find it as Republicans strip stimulus programs. Vote Democrat and Obama and this will change...

We've had 4 miserable years of Obama's incompetence...What the hell is this "Vote Democrat and Obama and this will change..."????? You must be deaf, dumb and stupid! There has only been Obama disaster and lies for all 4 years. Vote anyone EXCEPT Obama since we've already witnessed the fact that he has no idea whatsoever how to lead, unify the nation, or improve the economy. You are absolutely ridiculous!!!

"1-Obama increased Support for Veterans: With so many soldiers coming home from Iraq and Iran with serious physical and mental health problems, yet facing long waits for services, increased 2010 Department of Veterans Affairs budget by 16 percent and 2011 budget by 10 percent.?
In your dreams. Support for veterans, right. Sure the budget got increased.. as did the salaries for those that work for them and all the new hires and appointments by this administration. Buildings got built (see dental clinic at Eglin Air Force base) took over a year to get a dentist for the veterans, and then, only 100% service connected disabled vets.
Some services allegedly afforded to veterans are 100% discriminatory as to age. Only vets that served after certain dates (Sept 11 being one of them) qualify for some benefits.
My husband has a wheelchair supplied by the VA. He lost his leg due to a combat wound that never healed. They USED to send periodic maintainance people to the house to repair and replace worn parts. Now, with the current administration and their additional funding to the veterans adminsitration, the one legged veteran has to take his own wheel chair, minimum 85 miles one way, to a contracted company that well let him leave the chair (how's he supposed to get around in the mean time?) and come back for it when it's finished - insult to injury..the VA won't be paying milage for this 340 mile trip to get his wheel chair fixed.
I fail to see how this increase in budget has benefited the veteran at all. How bout thinking of it this way.. there are over 20% more disabled veterans in the system, but the increase in budget only covers 10% of these men and women - and yet, they some how manage to finance health care for illegal aliens and feed and house convicts that are here illegally also.
Turning to oil production.. we may be pulling more from the ground at home but as you stated, we're selling it offshore - but we still BUY it from other countries at higher prices than we're selling it. Only an idoit would buy something at a higher price than what they sell the same product for. Only a bigger idiot would praise the practice.

Obama has made things even worse since elected. He needs to go back to Chicago so that we can have a successful businessman and former governor with executive experience put this nation back on track. Four more years of the same Obama failure and incompetence will not do it, as proven by the last four years. Wake up and smell the Obama snakeoil he's been selling, because that's all he's been doing.

I vote and I vote responsibly. Study the candidates, and study what they say they believe and what they do. Are they honest, are they benevolent, are they EDUCATED? Do they represent THE PEOPLE. Do they believe in the Constitution of The United States which was founded by Christians who escaped the "changes" that Obama is getting us into now! I believe in the Republic of the United States of American and will fight any communistic takeover by illegals, illegally elected officials who want only to spend, spend, spend and refuse to admit truth! You have no right to anything in this great country if you are ambivalent. Let your passion for righteousness show in the election!

VET:

I see not only a lot of anger in your posts but see depression as well. I've been where you are at and still seek help through the VA medical programs.

If you feel the need please call the VA suicide hotline at 1-800-273-8255 and Press 1. They can also refer you to your local VA provider.

Our anger and depression spills over into other peoples' lives, including this forum. Contacting VA won't hurt, but it sure might help.

With Christian love, Kevin

Kevin Earl Wood, keep taking your medicines. That is what they want all of us veterans to do. All I can say to you is God Bless the King. Vet you need your medicine if you think you committed homicide, unless you really did, than screw you, God will take care of you. If you really want to make a difference stand up in your communities and stop crying that our government made you a killer. If you really want to make a difference, stand up and speak your mind where people can really hear you. If you want to hide behind your computer you are a coward. Before you call me a coward, I will give you this code WEW. Call me and I will have a job for you.
