This Alone Should Be Enough to Disqualify Obama for Re-Election

Posted by   + Show Post

A quick glance at the Federal Debt Clock shows the following...

A number growing really fast but as of 6 AM Pacific Time on Tuesday it's at $15,588,614,000,000 and getting bigger really fast.

Our current administration has added a third of that total in three years. That number was $8.67 trillion in January of 2007 when Nancy Pelosi became Speaker of the House, Harry Reid took over the Senate, and Barack Obama became a Senator. http://www.redstate.com/california_y...peaker-pelosi/

Of the House, the Senate, and the Presidency, Democrats have controlled two of those three if not all three every year since 2007, and in those five years we have seen the total debt for a nation that is more than 230 years old almost double.

And what's scary, is that our current president doesn't even talk about it. The debt will reach 16 trillion before election day and would reach more than 20 trillion before the end of a second Obama term...And Obama and his party won't even pass a budget. That level of fiscal incompetence all by itself is reason enough to send the Democrats packing.

Because it's stealing.  The people who earned the money, OWN the money.  Those that didn't earn that money, don't own that money.

This really is no different than saying, what's wrong with taking the stove out of the old woman's home, who can no longer cook for herself and relies on Meals on Wheels, and giving it to someone else that can cook.  Or what's wrong with taking the home that the old woman lived in, but now can't because she is convalescing, and giving it to someone else that lost their home.

Don't we all own things that we don't NEED?  Wouldn't you be upset if someone came along, decided what you needed or not, and forcibly took the things they decided you didn't need.  Wouldn't that be stealing?

Quoting Citygirlk:

how does it help him again? and what so bad about redistributing money to the poor people who need it instead of the rich who don't?  once again you don't make sense this man cares for the middle class and the poor that's what his campaign ran on in 2008 and will run on now, as i remember he wants to tax the super rich and give tax breaks to the middle class. what i don't understand is why people have a problem with this it was done in this country before why not go back to that way.

Quoting asfriend:

He is not trying to help the financial mess. The worse that  the financial mess gets the better for him. Every policy that he promotes is bad for the middle class. He is in bed with Wall Street, and he redistributes money to the poor. The more people that he can knock out of the middle class,  and make tham dependent on Government, the better for him.

Quoting Citygirlk:

sorry i never heard him say that he wants to be dictator or that he wants a utopia. i think you need to check your news source. and hoping that the president doesn't succeed in fixing the finical problem is exactly why this mess won't be fixed any faster than it is.

Quoting asfriend:

Since his view of utopia is him being an unopposed dictator of a third world country, I hope he never is able to succeed.

Quoting Citygirlk:

Its not that hes a poor leader he just need to grow some balls and step up to these peope and say hey you guys need to stop looking iut for your own interest and start thinking about the country and its people.

So, who defines the need?  How long until your need is defined as a want, or until your neighbors want becomes a need?  Mamaw gave some great examples - would you say that is an acceptable form of redistribution?

Infuriating, isn't it?  If we don't talk about the national debt, it will go away.  Maybe money will start growing on trees or falling from the sky?  It's fine because we can just pass the buck to our children, right?  

I am so passionate about how much debt we have that the ONLY candidate I will vote for is Ron Paul (if nominated).  I don't like how either party spends, but I do think the Democrats have more of a spending problem in general.

Forcibly taking money from those who have it and giving it to those who need it is stealing.

I am stating the factual truth that repubs love to point out where the debt is and that it has jumped, but what Bush left there is there, so it is not all President Obama's fault, sorry to teach you something today

They can vote to cut spending all they want, but the president can veto it, or he can just sign an executive order and pass whatever he wants.  I do agree that some Republicans have a spending problem, but you can't just blame everything on one party.

Quoting sweet-a-kins:

What happen with that republican congress that was going to cut spending?
