The Honorable President Obama will win this election for many reasons.

One of them is because he has a secret weapon.
That secret weapon will ensure that we have four more years of policies that are favorable to the Middle Class and treats women with respect.

That secret weapon believes that corporations are people and that taxes are paid by those who cannot hide their money in overseas accounts.

That secret weapon is...
There's nothing secret about it.

We have a press that has abandoned the fundamental principles and the integrity of the fourth estate.

These so called "journalists" (LOL) continue to collude and spread lies and propoganda in favor of their Marxist candidate.

But Freedom will prevail on election day.

Marxism will breathe its last gasp in America.

And Obama will go the way of the dinosaur.

Via Chicago!

Do you mean the "wars" that just as many democrats as Republicans voted for?

Then according to your twisted logic all of the rich democrats are still profiting from them too.

We all know the war that democrats profit from is the "class war" that they have brought down upon us.

That war will end with Romney's election and Obama's defeat.

This video effectively proves that Trayvon got away (As confirmed by Dee Dee) and doubled back in order to encounter George Zimmerman.

The only logical reason Trayvon would have doubled back rather then going home when he had plenty of opportunity is because he wanted to pick a fight.

Obvious case of self-defense, any way you look at it. Watch this video, and if anyone still thinks he's guilty afterwards then they are either an idiot or they are being paid by Benjamin Crump and the rest of Team Skittles to lie.
Just like with the OJ Simpson case, if they would have had OJ committing the murders on tape there still wouldn't have been enough evidence.

If a tape surfaced showing Martin brutally attacking and trying to kill Zimmerman the racists on this thread would try to say that the tape was doctored, among other things.

Dee Dee will be the best witness for the defense.

O'Mara's gonna rip Dee Dee a new one on the stand.

Like a pit bull on a poodle, it gonna be ugly.

What a waste of taxpayer money if this thing makes it to trial.

But we all know why George was charged.

Yeah, that's why I said anyone that watched that video to the end would be forced to recognize that George Zimmerman acted in self-defense, unless they are complete idiots or that are being paid by Team Skittles to lie.

Really... war is supposed to stimulate economies?? The only thing it stimulated, jackazz, was the bottom line of Haliburton et al. And who were most of Haliburton's hires???...... IRAQIS.

Here are the indisputable facts: In the last year, our nation’s credit was downgraded for the first time in history, and Moody’s recently warned of another possible downgrade in 2013.

Our national debt is nearly $16 trillion, or nearly $51,000 for every man, woman, and child in America. And, if you count those too discouraged to look for work, or working part-time because they cannot find full-time employment, the unemployment rate is 15%.

And here’s why a group of leading economists are worried: We have managed this abysmal “recovery” even with interest rates at historic lows.

So what happens when interest rates rise and we can’t afford our debt payments? How bad will inflation be when the hundreds of billions of dollars the Fed has printed finally hit the economy?

And what will happen to the stock market and real estate prices when interest rates finally rise?

While 15% unemployment, a looming credit downgrade, an inflation crisis, and ballooning debt constitute a bleak outlook for the United States, there is one beacon of hope.

This beacon of hope comes in the form of a clear, concise, and comprehensive blueprint for economic survival that every American must read.

The team of economists behind this blueprint, led by Robert Wiedemer, have an unprecedented track record of predicting destructive economic events.

Now, Wiedemer and his team have published Aftershock, which details a clear plan for every American to protect and grow their wealth, regardless of which politician wins the White House or which political party holds sway over Washington, D.C.

In a tell-all interview for Aftershock, Wiedemer outlines why it is more important than ever for citizens of this country to prepare for the worst.

“The data is clear, 50% unemployment, a 90% stock market drop, and 100% annual inflation ... starting in 2013.”

Editor’s Note: See the disturbing interview with Wiedemer.

Wiedemer calmly laid out a clear explanation of why such a dramatic collapse is a virtual certainty.

It starts with the reckless strategy of the Federal Reserve to print massive amounts of money out of thin air in an attempt to stimulate the economy.

“These funds haven’t made it into the markets and the economy yet.
But it is a mathematical certainty that once the dam breaks, and this money passes through the reserves and hits the markets, inflation will surge,” said Wiedemer.

“Once you hit 10% inflation, 10-year Treasury bonds lose about half their value. And by 20%, any value is all but gone. Interest rates will increase dramatically at this point, and that will cause real estate values to collapse.
And the stock market will collapse as a consequence of these other problems.”

The interview has become a wake-up call for those unprepared (or unwilling) to acknowledge an ugly truth: The country’s financial “rescue” devised in Washington has failed miserably.

Fortunately, Wiedemer also offers solutions that every American can use to protect and grow their wealth during the challenging times ahead.

The following facts came from the Huffington Post:

Of the top 10 companies with employees donating money to Obama's campaign, three are big banks: JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup and Goldman Sachs, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. Some of Obama's other major contributors include employees from big companies such as Microsoft and Google.

Last December, congressional Democrats managed to save the payroll tax cut for o...ne more year, giving 122 million workers a few extra bucks each paycheck, but now that boost may quietly disappear, according to the Wall Street Journal. That's because the White House won't be pushing for another payroll tax cut extension this year.

Median household income fell 6.7 percent between June 2009, when the recession technically ended, and June 2011, according to a Census Bureau study cited by The New York Times. That's more than the 3.2 percent incomes fell during the recession, between 2007 and 2009.

Welcome to the U.S. of Low-Wage America. Most of the jobs lost during the recession paid middle wages, while most of those gained during the recovery were low-wage jobs, according to a recent study from the National Employment Law Project.

At the end of 2011, five big banks, including Bank of America and JPMorgan Chase, held 56 percent of the U.S. economy, according to Bloomberg, compared to 43 percent five years earlier. That's right, the too-big-to-fail banks have actually gotten bigger.

Many current and former members of the Obama Administration have ties to Wall Street. The list includes the president's current and former chiefs of staff -- Jacob Lew and Bill Daley, respectively -- as well as his former budget director, Peter Orszag, and others.

The announcement last month that the Justice Department wouldn't be prosecuting Goldman Sachs over allegations surrounding the financial crisis was a reminder for many that the Obama Administration has largely let banks off the hook for their role in the meltdown. And regulators and officials may be running out of time; the statute of limitations for crimes related to the financial crisis is fast approaching, according to The New York Times.

The Obama Administration touted the $25 billion mortgage deal it reached with 49 states and the big banks to settle allegations that banks mishandled mortgages. As part of the settlement, banks said they would offer at least $10 billion in loan forgiveness to homeowners. But months after the deal was inked, banks have been slow to hand out the money.

In 2009, Obama announced the Home Affordable Mortgage Program, promising to help 3 to 4 million borrowers, but as of January -- more than three years into the program -- HAMP had only reached 1 million borrowers. In an aim to give the program legs, administration officials changed the rules in January to make more borrowers eligible. Still, the fixes were likely too little too late, experts said at the time.

Once the health care law takes effect, insurance companies will be footing the bill for millions of previously uninsured Americans and for those who were denied coverage for pre-existing conditions. And health insurance companies will likely pass on to consumers the cost of insuring the new patients. After Massachusetts enacted a similar health care plan in 2006, premiums for an individual plan in the state rose 18 percent over three years.

Some of America's most profitable companies used a variety of loopholes to pay less than zero in taxes between 2008 and 2010, according to a November 2011 report from the Center for Tax Justice. But the Obama administration wants to make it even easier for corporations to have a smaller tax bill; Obama proposed a tax overhaul that would cut the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 28 percent.

Also from the Huffington Post because it wouldn't fit in the 4000 character limit for a single post:

The rich took home a greater share of America's income pie from 2009 to 2010 than they did between 2002 and 2007, according to an April analysis from Emmanuel Saez, a professor at the University of California, Berkeley. That means the gap between the rich and the poor was more pronounced under Obama's presidency than under George W. Bush's.

Answer
The US government's reaction to its entry into WWII was to institute massive deficit spending, and the conscription of all able bodied young men for the war effort, thus creating a full-employment economy which was the immediate end to the Great Depression. A belief existed that another depression might occur upon the return of the young men to the labor force so a comprehensive veteran's benefit package was legislated. The logistics of the ensuing peace created a natural US trade advantage which allowed for the unfettered repayment of the war generated deficit. The liberal veteran's educational and housing benefit resulted in increased productivity and a construction boom. These forces combined to forestall any otherwise feared return to the depression.

Most historians and economists agree that the Depression did not end until the beginning of WWII.
It improved economics because the war created more jobs such as creating weaponry and manufacturing the raw materials to run a war. These new jobs were able to jump start the economy.

You must be outta your mind to believe that Shrub II's immoral elective war with Iraq was to stimulate the economy.

The war with Afghanistan certainly wasn't to stimulate the American economy. It was to strike back at our enemies for 9-11.

The never-served-their-country neo-con's unjustified war with Iraq can be described with many words or phrases, but "stimulate the economy" just isn't one of them. No need for a reference to WWII, as it is inappropriate and intellectually dishonest.

Here are some words and phrases that you may be looking for to describe Shrub II's unjustified war...

Greed
Greed
Greed
To upstage father
To finish the job
Cronyism
Cronyism
Cronyism
To grab wealth at the expense of others
Nation Building
Oil
Oil
Oil
Oil
Oil
Oil
AIPAC
Military transformation

There is no one reason why Shrub II and the coward neocons deceived America into war, but there is one word to describe it all...

STUPIDITY

And to that, I say...NEVER AGAIN!!!

FOUR MORE YEARS!!!!
