Obama has created a economic environment that is bad for ALL businesses, the Government is growing by leaps and bounds on the backs of Small business and the middle class..
Obama is delivering on his promise of "fundamental change" in America, I think its time to change Presidents.

I can speak from personal experience, Obama is no friend to small business.
I am hanging on and hoping that Romney will be elected and get things turned around.

I have to admit this has happened since I've witnessed /three/ independant "mom and pop" pizza joints I've worked with go under since Obama came in, coincidence or not, or whatever the reasons, it happened.

These places pretty much thrived in the Bush years, and did even better during the 1990s Clinton freewheeling, when the gates into Fort Benning were completely open, before 9-11... but one shut down in 2009, another in 2011, and the last was going under when the owner sold out and went back to Egypt.

So the last one is still on life support with a new owner, but times are hard for even the chain Pizzerias.

There is no doubt that Obama is bad for business, big and small, in America.
That is why as a proud democrat I am voting for Romney, I think he can get the wheels of business in America turning again.

I find it repulsive that any American, Democrat or Republican, would consider communist ideas as part of their politics.

People who vote for Obama are people who want communism, they want everything provided to them.
Those who don't but still vote for him just because he is a democrat are the real idiots.

I would say someone making 14 million thru overseas investments and paying 13% tax is wanting everything provided to them.

The phrase sour grapes is an expression originating from "The Fox and the Grapes," one of Aesop's Fables. It refers to pretending not to care for something one wants, but does not or cannot have.

Obama ain't about business or corporations. He see them like a unending source of money to fund his redistribution plans.
I say if you gonna do that just make everyone make the same no matter what you do, movies stars, plumbers, doctors, garbage men all make the same annual wage. Thats the end game, thats ultimate fairness ain't it.
How about those that work make the same as those who don't.

This is the logical end of what Obama does with his "spreading the wealth" philosophy, won't happen but it makes about as much sense.

I worked for my little piece of the pie but I'm supposed to be pissed because a guy on the other side of town makes 100 times what I do, I am supposed to think that is no fair?
He pays way more taxes than me cause he make more but the percentages of our income taxes are about the same so that is fair either?

This is what pisses me off about Obama, this whole line of thinking. I want a democrat in the White House but I cannot vote for this, is what the democratic party has become? Ditch Obama and get the party back on track and get away from these stupid ways of thinking.

Here again we have another forum post by Jim Pickens. The article he is posting about is from a bias right wing author. This is another example of his attempt to brainwash and propagandize those who are not republicans. I saw alot of this when I lived behind the Iron Curtain in 1969. There it was left-wing extremist brainwashing their people into the evils of Capitalism. This
Country has got to become a multi-party contry and not bounce back and forth between republicans and democrats.
