The Truth

The world is ruled by a Satanic cabal, by the 13 Satanic bloodlines who trace their ancestry all the way to the fallen angels of Genesis 6. They consider themselves as “gods”, the children of the “gods” and they claim a divine right to rule. This is of course false. These people are the seed of the serpent. They rule via occult secret societies: Freemasonry, Skull and Bones, Knights of Templar/Malta … etc. What we are presented in the MSM is all smoke and mirrors, an illusion, a false reality. If you deny the occult, deny the spiritual aspect of the world we live in, you will not be able to connect the dots and understand what is really going on!

You really shouldn't talk about the President like that... well at least so far you appear to be the <emphasis>only<emphas is> one saying those things in the last two or three pages or so.

Many people here appear to be engaged in provocative discourse and thoughtful debate…

You on the other hand appear to be making baby noises, and claiming others have been making statements that for the past few pages are attributable only to you…

That should give everyone a pretty good indication of who here might have a supportable position and thoughtful commentary and who doesn't.

Interesting statement, not entirely correct… but interesting.
Check the Bain Capital website, or any reputable news outlet for that matter, Bain had an average 80% success rate when it came to acquiring companies reorganizing them and turning to profitability.
“Private sector experience” has <emphasis>everything< emphasis> to do with job creation. Only the private sector can produce private sector jobs. The only jobs the government can create – is more government jobs.
The federal government may enact regulations to assist or impede that process, they can offer policy to aid private sector employers, they can even offer temporary funding to allow private sector business to hire people… but <emphasis>only<emphas is> the private sector can “create jobs” in the private sector.
The federal government has already had its try at creating private sector jobs with stimulus funds… the only problem was when those stimulus funds disappeared – so did most of those jobs. That should have reinforced the fact that the federal government cannot create private sector job, but unfortunately many seem to have missed that message.
Of course one of the good things about our Republic is the fact that people don’t have to believe the same thing, they don’t have to vote the same way… but it should be the obligation of every responsible voter to be as informed of the actual facts, and resistant to the hype and misinformation as possible…
But like I said that apparently only applies to “responsible” voters.
I have so much rebuttal, it would choke your brain, but been there, done that and moved on. I have learned there is no sense or point in trying to educate or inform. All the issues I have mentioned about Bain, Romneys' time as gov of Mass are relevent to whether or not he is fit to be Pres of this Nation.
Again I say to you WTF does his time and work with Bain Capital have to do with being prepared to hold the highest office in this Country?

Well to begin, Romney has had experience working in the private sector, he is aware of what 'working slobs' have to go through to get and keep a job.

- Obama apparently does not.

Romney has progressed through the private sector to become a chief executive of a corporation, and as such knows how management must relate to labor to run a productive and profitable venture.

- Obama apparently does not.

Part of Romney's private sector responsibility had to do with downsizing when necessary.

- Something that seems to elude President Obama.

Romney appears to have experience in doing away with wasteful, unproductive redundancy.

- Again, a concept that seems to elude President Obama.

And for me the culmination of the differences between these two men:

President Obama is a known quantity; we will have had four years of experience with his proposals, policy and preferences. To date most of the things he has already done doesn’t seem to have done a lot of good. Even members of his own party often seem ‘resistant’(for a lack of a better word) to many of his policies, proposals and tactics.

Obama pledged “transparency”, all I have seen is increased obscurity.
Obama pledged “bipartisanship”, all I have seen is some of the worst partisan bickering in decades.

President Obama has informed us we need to “tighten our belts”,“turn our thermostats down” and cut back on everything… but the government seems to keep growing, borrowing and spending at an exponentially increasing rate.

Since 2010, the costs of everything seems to have increased, available employment seems to have decreased, mortgages are harder to get, and those banks not closed, seems less willing to lend money. Global opinion of our nation seems to be worsening instead of getting better and for all the talk about the failed policies, constitutional ‘liberties’ and down right violations of the previous administration during the 2008 campaign, little seems to have changed and in my opinion sometimes even appears to have become worse.

Obama had pledged; “Hope and Change”– I’ve seen neither in the past three years.

Not short, now sweet… but you did ask.

Romney is thus far an "unknown" commodity, he might be little different, he might be worse – but then he well might be better…

His “qualifications” for being President are probably much like Obama’s were when he was campaigning… there is no “experience” that prepares someone for being President, it is a OJT experience for everyone.

I know what another four years of an Obama administration would likely be, much like the last four years… I don’t KNOW what might happen should Romney be elected – but sometimes, when left with the devil you know –vs – an unknown that might be better, sometimes you have to roll the dice and hope for the best.

Or at least those are my thoughts.

The US taxpayer should not have to support this political institution any longer.
I suggest you contact your legislators.

And please post the responses you get.

It would be interesting to read them in light of the political fallout of Obama's current war on the Catholic Church, which equates to a general war on Christianity:

Patrick didn't miss anything worth having, that is for sure. "Benign" must be Mormonspeak for racist, homophobic idiotic beliefs. If it is low class and scummy, Mormonism has taught it.

This is Mormon so-called "tolerance" towards homosexuals today. They are still supporting Evergreen, trying to force gay LDS teens to become straight. http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/news/54173182-78...

But why are they trying to force them? This is what is killing them according to No Surprise. They should be leaving them alone until they can handle the pressures of being heterosexuals. They shouldn't be making them take on the pressures of heterosexual groups. THEY ARE KILLING THEM BY MAKING THEM SUPPORT THEIR HETEROSEXUAL AGENDA!!! YOU MURDERS! YOU ARE THE REASON THEY ARE KILLING THEMSELVES!!!

Yes, Patrick is.

You don't know the meaning of the word "benign"? And here you've been presenting yourself as some sort of "know-it-all" walking encyclopedia of Mormonism!(Hint: There are dictionaries online!)

There is nothing more "low-class and scummy" than your comments.

Oh, and you are wrong again (or are you just lying?). No one is "forcing" anyone to do anything. Evergreen is entirely voluntary for those who wish to become involved.

Free Agency, my man. Everyone has it, whether they like it or not.

It's the Moron church that needs a dictionary. It calls 19 yr old boys "Elder", 14 yr old boys "Teacher".(What the hell can they teach besides how to masturbate?) It calls dragging a child to in her PJ's "free agency". It's calls denying black people the priesthood and gays the right to have love "tolerance". It calls a child molester "Prophet". Hell, someone needs to send those old farts in Salt Lick a tuck load of dictionaries. If those senile old coots can even read.
