- I am truly sorry that you are on your current situation. I know it's difficult. I have been out of work since August 2008, myself just before it became apparent we were in trouble as a nation. I hod George W. Bush Accountable for that. He fell asleep on the wall. We had been bleeding jobs since 2006 and Bush took no action.
John the majority of Americans do not realize is that the American Middle Class has been under financial attack since Nixon. The employee wage freeze, froze our pay while big business made record profits. The Late Ronald Reagan, Trickle Down Economics was called by then Vice President Bush as VOODOO Economics, because he understood the trick in the trick-le. It actually trickled up from the middle class to the wealthy. Do you remember the National debt clock that was in time square, Romney had resurrected that clock up fro a couple of speeches until they realized that clock was up under Reagan. Reagan did massive borrowing to fund the tax cuts, and the American middle Class had to pay the tab under Clinton. Two years into Clinton's presidency the clock was taken down. Clinton left office with a 2 trillion dollar surplus.
Along came the president, the GOP now has shuns and has remains relatively un-named during this campaign and has done no appearances. He took a 3 trillion dollar surplus and made it evaporate! John, Where did it go? I did not get any of it. I hope you at least got some of it, and if not John, someone got that money. Bush Era Tax Cuts for Wall Street and the wealthy. It was not the middle class that almost destroyed our national economy, it was Bush and the wealthy who miss handle investments (JP Morgan Chase, recently, is still at it -5.3 billion lost0). They took Tarp set up under Bush and gave themselves big pats on the back and huge bonuses (on would have kept me employed 2 years), taking our money and putting it in their pockets. DO you know that big business is holding on to three trillion dollars (3,000,000,000,000) John that is enough money to employ 60 million, 50,000 dollar a year jobs! John they could end unemployment in America. What I find most interesting is that unemployment fell to just above the number The President and his number crunchers said. it would go below. Business is deliberately holding back on hiring denying the President this victory.
John do you have any idea what a Venture Capitalist does? Here's an outline.
John this next thing is going to be hard to wrap your mind around, I know I had trouble myself. the New GOP is not after winning or buying an election, it is about the Very Wealthy, the same ones that brought us the Great depression and the fall over the investment cliff of 2008, who want to buy this nation right from under us, get this John, They want to own the USA for themselves and Romney is theirs. and bot the Middle Class's. Think John, Sheldon Adeleson just donated over 4 million dollars to two PAC Donald Trump, Victor Friess, The Koch Brothers. John do you think they, as venture capitalists. are giving that money away, never to see it again? before it's over over two and a half billion dollars from Billionaires will poor in to Romney's PAC and war chest. They have set Romney up as a puppet. These guys are 50 times more wealthy than Romney. DO you think John for one second that these wealthy guys are giving up that kind of money because they have a great concern about you and your family?
They want to a larger return on their huge investments (ROI) it's not a giveaway. I'm not going to tell you how to vote, that is completely up to you and your perfect right. An I pray that you exercise it and protect it and the rights of others. if the come for one groups, eventually they will come for next then the next until their get to yours, then there will be no one left to help you protect yours right.
The voter purges are really an attempt to cheat and deny genuine citizens their rights to vote.so they can win. If they, God forbid, are successful at cheating, how far will they take this once they have started?here is where they are going. to lock it all up so that they are the only ones that will rule our nation. What has history, even recent history like Syria taught us when only one party rules? Civil War. and they have the guns and ammo to take any resistant descent out, with stand your ground laws to back them up and keep them from going to jail for annihilation of unfavorable groups. History, John; History tells us the story of where this all is going. Check out the blog the outline tells how Venture capitalism has been a part of our economic problems and how it drains and drags on our economy, and blame it on the president. Like reducing funding to Public Education until it is dysfunctional, they say Look Public Education is not working, we need to get rid of the Department of Education. (they have always done things and scapegoated others. On jobs, they are holding the Presidents Jobs bill and will not pass it. Anything that will help the economy and create jobs the GOP has blocked or filibuster it and made every excuse n the book not to help the middle class. Do you know that about 90% percent of all con men are really tall, dark and handsome. Jim Jones, David Koresh, Well not so much Bernie Madoff, But if you watch American Greed, You get to see the face of these deceivers, who people willing hand their money over to.Well John I hope you have a great week, and do some research, don't vote on your feelings however you vote, do it on research and strong knowledge of what is actually going on around you.
Have a Great one

- Hey Luke glad to see you are commenting and speaking your mind. but there is no need for cursing and name calling. Th birth certificate was not falsified, and the moment Then Senator Obama, began to run for office he was fully investigated. There would be no way for him to make it in. The FBI is skilled at detecting forgeries and falsified document. The have examined that Document a thousand ways to Sunday and nothing was found to disqualified him. with the resources they have, they' of found him out. and he would have been jailed for fraud. so please man you do not see how you make yourself look when you post stuff like that. 3 1/2 years, they definitively would have found him out. Take Care Luke Hope you have a great week.Jul 16, 2012
- You seem like a smart person, and I agree with u on the cursing even though Iam guilty of it now and then. On the other hand i also disagree with you and believe sometimes the rich and movement are so great that even the FBI will and have through are history lied and hid the truth.I do know you are not an expert and niether am I, but come on man really?Jul 23, 2012

- Romney is no chance, he'll fill his partners pockets not ours. do you know what a venture capitalist is and what they do? I studied them in the late seventies and into the nineties, they put people out of work. Te billionaires backing him are not doing so because they think he wants to help the middle class? if you believe that I hope for you and your families sake that Romney loses, . he loves taking out tax dollars and give them to his friends taking money from the government and giving it to himself like he did at the Olympics
You have to know what you are replacing one thing with another, sometimes the headache and the heart ache are really not worth it. But just as long as you vote and never take your vote for granted. the only vote that does not count is the one that is not cast.Jul 26, 2012
