VOTE IN NOVEMBER!
DEMOCRATS are happy. Things are just humming along for them..
And Obama couldn't be happier!
NEVER LET A GOOD CRISIS GO TO WASTE
These political thugs(DEMOCRATS) have their own reasons for creating social unrest, modeled after the Saul Alinsky school of political thought. They believe that chaos and crisis is one of the most favorable environments to push forward radical, transformational policies.
