No middle of the road, indecisive , rambling vote will win the day.
Obama has and is moving us forward at an accelerating rate. Obama has taken a page from 1929’s depression and studied Eccles economics that got them out of the depression.
Observe the markets of Sept.6 2012.
Observe who rebuilt the infrastructure to hold Bankers to strict derivatives regulations. Banker’s lobbied with over $200 million! to stop the Obama, Elizabeth Warren and Frank Dodds regulations from being implemented.{Volcker Rule 2010 May} Republicans are still seeking to deregulate them. Expose what their goals are and its NOT for our Main Street USA.
Elizabeth goes nose to nose right in the face with Wall Streets tycoons. Our lady tiger that has the Tycoons appreciate fear. She is not a BROWN nosing follower of the herded sheep.
2016 she will be a contender for president my predication. Observe her speech at the convention http://youtu.be/zNcbg1EU_bI U-tube speech.

This is one small example of how Obama will seek to continue to move us forward, up and out of the chaos of the republicans mandates.
Stimulus plan to revitalize the middle class produced a beneficial return on investment. We have seen an impressive recovery in the equity markets from Bush’s stock markets lost of 14 years of gains. Markets had retraced the lows back to 1996 in less than 17 months. Greatest lost ,in market value, in our Nations history. Yes! Including any rolling 17 month period during the Great Depression.
Obama’s actions helped restore equity markets post a gain of 105% through April of 2011. During Obama’s first 27 months in office.
Making up most of the losses with gains to the DOW of 17.2%, S&P 500 25.3% and the NASDAQ 31.7%. Compare this to say Reagan first 3.3 years in office Reagan’s gains to ; DOW 6.86%, S&P 500 6.16%, NASDAQ 7.02%. Obama has surpassed most of his predecessors, including Bill Clinton and Ronald Reagan!
Stimulus also stopped the decline in corporate profits that started under George W. Bush. Stimulus helped produce an increase of 22% per year in the first two years.
Latest up date to Markets; The Fed pledged Thursday to buy $40 billion in mortgage-backed bonds every month from large banks and other dealers in an effort to help free up capital and spur lending. The move is also expected to help push down mortgage rates, already near record lows, to further stimulate the housing market. The central bank said it would continue buying until the unemployment rate, which stood at 8.1 percent in August, decreases significantly.
Wall Street continued to cheer the news. The Dow Jones Industrial Average, which surged more than 206 points after the Fed announcement Thursday -- climbed another 53 points Friday to 13,593, its highest closing since December 2007. Global markets also reacted positively: the Hang Seng index in Hong Kong surged 2.9 percent, the Japanese Nikkei 225 index shot up 1.8 percent, and the British FTSE 100 rose more than 1.6 percent.
Obama has had the slowest growth in spending of any President in the past 60 years: http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/state...

America’s inequality;
“Rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer.”
Illumination of this can be viewed within our USA. Increasing wealth, disproportional to the impoverished who are unable to maintain an
equitable ratio in gains. Impoverished, at their best, stagnation of their share in laborers productivity. Increasingly eroding of their portions of share to their labors productivity. Increasing to the inequality and accelerating negatively to the impoverished.
Three decades of low wages, to the 90%, with a growth of 15%. Earnings increase to the 1% have been cruising at 150% increases as to the 0.1% are racing at 300% Greater acceleration of wealth accumulation has affected the wealth at the bottom.
Middle class bastion of secured wealth accumulation has been severely oppressed. Homes lost their values. Top 1% lost wealth but it was soon recovered. Middle class years later are just now experiencing a strangulated loss gain to their investments if not a total loss. Typical 1% held 225 times the wealth of the typical middle class household. Doubling the ratio experienced as they were in 1962 and 1983.
Prior to 2007 the 1% enjoyed accumulating 57% of the nations wealth. Producing an increase in capital income after 1979 some 7/8 while those in the 95% received less than 3% of the increment.
Consider for an example; Walton’s family of the Wal-Mart empire commands a wealth of 69.7 Billion. Compare this to the total wealth of the 30% of the entire population, of the impoverished within the USA.
“Good” middle class jobs have been eviscerated that required moderate skills, like autoworkers’ jobs, in ratio to the unskilled laborers. Where in at the top greater skill levels were required.

Does this sound like some of our 47% that republicans want ro sweep under the bus.

Polarization of the labor force. Collapse of good jobs has been in affect for the last 25 years. Wages have gone down, increasing disparity of inequality in favor of the 1%. Creating a downward spiral for the middle class laborer.
Presently as an example; Single earner of family of two children, in good health, manages to work 40 hours per week,{Presently Average working hours for Americans is at 34 hours} at a wage above minimum {$8.50/hr} Pays S.S. which reduces his earnings to $8.00. Yearly income is $16,640 for 2080 hr’s of labor.
Pays no income tax but his employer charges him $200 a month for health insurance, to cover entire family and employer picks up remaining $550 cost per month of the cost to health insurance. This results in a take home pay $14,240 a year. Luck on his side, finds an apartment for $700 month with all utilities included. Now this reduces yearly earnings to $5,840 to cover all family cost for the year. Add in a car with fuel, insurance and maintenance at $3,000 per year and what remains is $2840. Under $3.00 per individual per day. No entertainment and no buffer zone for accidents or lost of wages.
Along comes the “Great Recession” Safety nets cut! Miss rent due to loss wages and homelessness looms.
One Example of nets being cut and their affect; Many states cut child care. Average monthly child care for two children $1,433 per month to be subtracted from the $2,840 a month families income. Results in $1.30 per, person per day!
One small example of the inequality that republicans have shoved down our throats since 1970. Wages remain flat as jobs evaporate and benefits wither.

Regulations, Regulation. Is What Strikes fear in the corrupt and criminal.
Republicans see us on the Brink as democrat see opportunity.
Could this explain why, there is such a diverse view of the same equation? Republicans see a dwindling ability to extract social welfare payments from the bottom of the Pyramid scheme’s they have designed. Democrats’ see opportunity for our society by cutting welfare payments to the elitist and returning the Pyramid back to its proper position.
……. Cronyism Welfare…. Fair Game?…..
Interesting article in the N.Y. Times exposing who is holding the dysfunctional activities of the corporations accountable and who is opposed. Here is a small excerpt from it.
Whistle-Blower Lawyers Throw Support Behind Obama
By ERIC LIPTON
Published: October 1, 2012

WASHINGTON — As the Obama administration has cracked down on corporate fraud, lawyers representing whistle-blowers have reaped multimillion-dollar rewards. Now, as they seek to sustain these historic payouts, they are serving as generous donors to the president’s re-election campaign.
Bill Crandall fo The New York Times
John R. Phillips, one of the nation’s top whistle-blower lawyers, has raised more than $200,000 for Mr. Obama’s re-election from colleagues.

Lawyers in the tight circle who specialize in filing fraud claims with the federal government on behalf of clients with evidence of wrongdoing have raised more than $3 million so far for President Obama. The administration, meanwhile, has paid out $1.6 billion to whistle-blowers during his tenure, with law firms taking a cut in some cases of up to 40 percent of the proceeds.
The lawyers have contributed directly to Mr. Obama’s campaign, served as “bundlers” who solicit contributions from others, donated to the Democratic National Committee and written large checks to Priorities USA, the “super PAC” supporting Mr. Obama’s re-election efforts. They have also donated heavily to Congressional Democrats.
Their support comes as Mitt Romney, the Republican presidential nominee, has called for repeal of the Dodd-Frank Act, which imposed new oversight of the financial services industry and expanded the government’s whistle-blower program to the Securities and Exchange Commission, which has set aside $430 million for payouts. Business groups have also pushed for legislation imposing a cap on payments to whistle-blowers, arguing that rewards reaching as high as $104 million, as happened in one case, have turned anti-fraud efforts into a lottery.”

Now Keep in Mind the Frank Dodd Act was articulated with Elizabeth Warrens expertise which the Wall Street Bankers outrageous opposition. Over $200 Million to have the Act dismantled and voted down. Now this Act is the base from which lawyers are launching, to aggressively seek out corruptions within our corporations.

How many free trade bills have been signed into law by a Democrat President in total, versus how many were signed into law by GW alone?(Two versus 30). Did you know that America lost 6 million manufacturing jobs overseas just during GW's time in the Oval Office alone?

Are you aware that Senate Republicans have four times now in the last 3 & 1/2 years voted in lockstep to filibuster Democrat-sponsored bills that would have penalized US companies wanting to move American jobs offshore, as well as to enact incentives for US companies that wanted to bring our jobs back home? Do you know that Senate Republicans have filibustered 241 bills in the last 3 & 1/2 years, which is six times the average of a 4-year Presidency, and that most of the bills that were killed were bills that would have created and/or strengthened American bottom 90% jobs?

And yet you blame President Obama and the Democrats for not doing enough for average American families, while entertaining the thought that by giving wealthy Americans even more money than they currently have, that somehow they will be careless-enough to let some of it trickle-down to you?

Wealthy Americans and the Republican Party are blackmailing the rest of America. They are telling us that either they get filthy rich, or nobody gets rich. They are telling us that a complete lack of banking regulation and oversight is necessary for them to make a killing, despite the fact that our entire current economic morass is the fault of a lack of banking regulation and oversight. They are telling us that the furtherance of their free trade goals will make us all rich, despite the fact that those 6 million American manufacturing jobs already lost to free trade would reduce our unemployment rate by half. They are telling us that record profits at our health insurance companies are necessary to maintain the "greatest medical community in the world", despite the fact that health care costs increased 8 times as fast as the inflation rate during GW's eight years in office.

Frankly, since most of Romney's advisers are GW's people, how will anything change for the better for the bottom 90% of us? If those same 15-20% annual health care cost increases were to continue for just another 8 years, nobody in the bottom 90% of us will be able to afford health insurance. If the slide in bottom 70% spending power that we have seen since Reagan was elected continues for another 8 years, the bottom 70% of Americans will be below the poverty level. Since Reagan was elected in 1980, Republicans have held the Oval Office for 20 of the 32 years since then.

Which US President owns the greatest increase in our national debt, when his trust fund borrowing is included? GW, who by himself incurred $6.8 trillion of debt starting from a budgetary surplus. Which US President has the greatest percentage increase in our national debt? Ronald Reagan, who nearly tripled our national debt all by himself, by cutting our top tax rates from 70% to 38% during a major recession almost as bad as our current economic morass.

There is nothing like actual facts and not neocon talking points.
