People, we need to face facts, obama is a failure, a failure to the extent that he makes Jimmy Carter look like a great president.

obama promised us change and that is what we got, a change in the shrinking of the middle class, a drastic change in gas prices, a change in being able to find employment, and a change in the increase in people receiving public assistance.
Obama is a failure by his own standards having failed on many of his campaign promises and now he wants four MORE years to steer this country deeper into debt and in general a path of failure for this country. He has turned American values upside down, under his watch working hard and making money has become a BAD thing. Realize that it is you and not the government that is responsible for you. Despite the obama actions a nanny government should not and must not become the main source of support for the average man.

Being that I am involved in the purchase of precious metals I will be much better off, on a personal note, if obama gets reelected, however, being a proud American I understand that we can not allow another four years.

Either way, I win, can you say the same?

Re read. It is the same regardless of the number. Tell me where you find that we are to operate as one please. Because the Federalist Papers and Anti Federalist Papers agree that the Constitution doesn't consolidate the independent states. But you're uneducated and unread.

Take us back? Are you stupid? The Constitution only has one method of change. Which you don't know, apparently.

Nothing in Obama's record trumps that. Since he's a pathetic, stealing Marxist.

the only reason why money is worth anything is - because people BELIEVE it is worth something.

once people stop believing it is worth something, they will not want to work for it.

once people don't want to work anymore... who is going to grow the crops to feed the masses? or produce the goods that we want to buy?

understand?

people need rewards to push them to accomplish deeds. otherwise, they will not have any ambition.

I agree with you.

we shouldn't be giving so much money to other countries. last year, according to the hudson institute, we gave 326+ BILLION to foreign countries.
http://gpr.hudson.org/

this should stop. we should not permit anybody in america - the government, corporation, or any citizen - to continue doing this.

no other country in the world donates so much. outrageous.

much of this money is going to countries who hate us too. unbelievable.

First of all if Obama and the rest of the idiots in government would hold the parents and the students accountable instead of the teachers then maybe teachers would not be quitting left and right! I am a teacher and I have no problem being held accountable for the things that I am 100% responsible for like my lesson plans, teaching, classroom management, etc.!!! It all goes back to HOME TRAINING so it is time that people quit dogging teachers and take a look in the mirror!!!! We are setting up the kids for failure because in the real world there are no accommodations for a kid that is outright lazy...well yes there is...he can live off the government!!! Having a true disability and pretending to have one are two different things!!!! Everybody wants to b treated equal but not work as hard as the person next door!! This country is going to shit and will continue to go to shit until our government changes!!!! I would love for Obama or Jindal to switch jobs with me for two months, salary included, so I can implement changes every other day and expect more and more from them and not the students while I am living on their income, eating organic food but siding with Monsanto against labeling GMO food!!!! Teachers can't even TEACH anymore with all the dam paperwork we have to do!!!!!!! One last thing, for those of you that think teachers are garbage and we don't deserve shit, I would love for you to walk in my shoes for just one month!
