I voted Gary Johnson... YES this is a meme, I have asked Obama supporters some of these questions but not all of them I found this one on one of my sites and thought it was interesting. You can choose to look this up or you can choose to ignore the TRUTH and continue being a sheep.

Are you asking me? I haven't seen the movie she was referencing.

Quoting BuzyMomma97:

So are you basing your opinion on a movie that you watched? I don't think that Obama is perfect. That is pretty obvious. But who is cut him a little slack. He has been t




Quoting krysstizzle:

Have you looked into the corruption that has been occurring in the federal government and office of the president for decades? 

Seriously. I'm not being skarky. How familiar are you with the corruption that has been happening since god knows when? How is this presidency any different? It's not any worse, that's for sure. 

Quoting angelmj:

Have you seen the movie "The Obama Deception" it talks about all the corruption since the beginning. 



Quoting krysstizzle:

Being uninformed isn't exclusive to either the right or the left, or anything in between, for that matter.

I could make a laundry list of skeezy dealings that have been going on for decades in the upper echelons of the federal governmnet. A Mitt Romney presidency would have been just as corrupt. It's the nature of the beast. And until some serious changes happens, it will most likely stay that way.

Quoting angelmj:

I asked so many questions to the Obama supporters and most of them were so uninformed it was devastating. 



Quoting yourspecialkid:

I voted for Johnson too. Iam amazed that so many people voted for Obama...it just defies explanation.

Part of the problem, perhaps a large part, is that when a candidate is campaigning, he/she makes a lot of promises. Then when elected, they cannot keep a lot of those promises or even act on the things they'd like to change because once elected, they become privy to information they didn't have prior to being elected and that information has a lot to do with what they do, or are even able to do. Then there;s that little thing called Congress, full of people with their own interests more at heart than the interests of the country as a whole.

The history channel recently had a program on called "The Presidents Book of Secrets". I didn't get to watch all of it but what I did see was very interesting...I'm watching to see if it comes on again.

One thing I would like to ask since people seem to think if a third party candidate was elected, and/or if we got rid of all the Congressional people who have been there for years, things would be different.

How would they really be different? Somehow I don't think any new people, third party candidate, whatever.. would be any less susceptible to lobbyists, etc. than the people that have been elected now or in the past. People are people and there are always going to be things that will sway them one way or the other, especially if they, personally, stand to benefit. I think it would be much easier to change things if they got rid of all the lobbyists and that to me, would have to be the first step. Otherwise it's just throwing someone new into the same old mess. Kind of like throwing a new mouse into the snake den and expecting the mouse will devour the snake rather than the known outcome.

If a third party was ever elected again I don't know how well that would go over. I would like to see though, we all know that a President is more than likely a puppet who might live under the strict rules from a higher form of Gov. Giving a "Do what we say or die" ultimatum and some presidents have been against the wars among other things and ended up dead. I voted Libertarian because I do believe in smaller government, freedom to choose, the legalization of marijuana ect. I am a considered a Liberal Libertarian or I have seen Left Libertarian. People like Ron Paul and Gary Johnson have questioned the ways of the Government and who are suppose believe are in our freedom. They have expressed it well before ever running/attempting to run for President. I would love to see one of them in office just to see if they could make a difference, if they could keep their word. I think it is time for real change that a dem or rep could do, and I don't think that we should be ran by the gov I think we should be the ones to run the gov. For our voice to actually be heard, who knows maybe a different party with a different view could be the answer or maybe we will just keep diving further into this hole were in.

Of course because everyone who voted for Obama is an ignorant taker looking for a handout who pays no attention to news or world events. They couldn't possibly just have a different POV or consider him the lesser evil.

Meh.

Quoting angelmj:

It was not implied it was clearly stated, it is not your fault I posted this to help you open your mind a little. Just because you're not informed on this one thing does not mean you are by any means dumb though. 

Quoting Mom2Just1:

Thanks for implying that I am ignorant.  

Quoting angelmj:

I would have posted them in words but this little graphic actually asked more than I did orginally, look this up or remain ignorant. It's your choice. 

Quoting Mom2Just1:

Moving on. I don't base my opinion of any person using e-mails, little graphics such as this,etc.




Could you be any more condescending or insulting? I know people really respond positively to that kind of attitude.









That was sarcasm in case you missed it.

Quoting MomTiara19:

This is alot of extreme topics that can be twisted and debated.Obviously the focus is to make the president out to be some kind of murderer,socialist,pot smoking hater of jews.

You have very strong beliefs and that is your right.I have the right to have read it,looked it up,and feel it is extremely way way off base to the point of creepy.


How is pot smoker even close to similar to murderer or anti-semite?

Quoting wanita61:

No, they just made a mistake in hoping the 3rd party might win. They probably despise Obummer as much as I do and believed the lies that Obummer spewed on Romney.

Quoting mikiemom:

check out the percentages in the states where romney lost, there votes would not have mattered and did it ever occur to you that maybe to them Romney was worse so they voted for their 3rd party knowing that it might help Obama win and they were making a statement with their vote.

Quoting wanita61:

Thanks for posting.

I don't mean to bash you or anything like that but do you realize if you and others had not wasted your votes on  Gary Johnson, this Liar-in-chief might not have had a second term?




Actually, everyone I know that voted 3rd party didn't waste anything but wanted to send a message to both parties, that we are sick of their corruption and stranglehold on our nation.

Obama is Bush-lite and Romney would have been Ultra-Bush on steroids.

NDAA - National Defense Authorization Act. One gets signed every year by the president of the US. 

Bradley Manning - Wikileaks leaker. Who ELSE was he talking to?

Syria, Pakistan, Libya and Yemen - Quite a few things. Be more specific.

Operation Fast and Furious - an ill-planned attempt to track Mexican gun runners. One Border Agent was killed.

Michael R Taylor - Former attorney, published in toxicology matters, first appointed to the FDA in 1991, moved to USDA, taught at a couple of universities of medicine in the DC area, now a deputy commissioner at the FDA. Shining example of Washington cronyism here, and it started under the Bush administration.

Hank Paulson - 74th Treasury Secretary, appointed by GW Bush.

First president to kill an American citizen and his son by drone - Barack Obama. Needs to be noted the "american citizen" was Anwar al- Awlaki, a leader of al Qaeda, who was connected to three of the 9/11 hijackers, the accused Fort Hood hijacker and the underwear bomber. The 16 year old was in the wrong place at the wrong time, and that's the fault of his father. Wrong place wrong time deaths happen daily. I'm going to be callous about it and put the blame squarely on al-Awlaki.

Medical marijuana raids - Pres. Barack Obama. And this is the ONLY thing in your list that I see as a problem.

Contributors - The second biggest contributor was Irwin Jacobs. Founder of Qualcomm. (Who also endorsed a Republican for mayor of San Diego. Irwin's got one win, one loss in the last election.)
