Obama's Economy is in the Toilet

Today there are 88 million working age Americans that are not employed and that are not looking for employment. That is an all-time record high.

When Barack Obama was elected, the percentage of unemployed Americans that had been out of work for more than 52 weeks was less than 15%. Today, it is above 30%.

There are 1.2 million fewer jobs in America today than there were when Barack Obama was inaugurated.

When Barack Obama first took office, the number of “long-term unemployed workers” in the United States was approximately 2.6 million. Today, that number is sitting at 5.6 million.

The average duration of unemployment in the United States is hovering close to an all-time record high.

During the Obama administration, worker health insurance costs have risen by 23 percent.

Since Barack Obama has been president, the average price of a gallon of gasoline in the United States has increased by 90 percent.

Since Barack Obama has been president, home values in the United States have declined by another 13 percent.

Under Barack Obama, new home sales in the U.S. set a brand new all-time record low in 2009, they set a brand new all-time record low again in 2010, and they set a brand new all-time record low once again during 2011.

Since Barack Obama took office, the number of Americans living in poverty has risen by more than 6 million.

Since Barack Obama entered the White House, the number of Americans on food stamps has increased from 32 million to 46 million. The amount of money that the federal government gives directly to Americans has increased by 32 percent since Barack Obama entered the White House.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the percentage of Americans living in “extreme poverty” is now sitting at an all-time high.

When Barack Obama first took office, an ounce of gold was going for about $850. Today an ounce of gold costs more than $2000 an ounce.

Since Barack Obama became president, the size of the U.S. national debt has increased by 44 percent.

During Barack Obama’s first two years in office, the U.S. government added more to the U.S. national debt than the first 100 U.S. Congresses combined.

During the Obama administration, the U.S. government has accumulated more debt than it did from the time that George Washington took office to the time that Bill Clinton took office.

The U.S. national debt has been increasing by an average of more than 4 billion dollars per day since the beginning of the Obama administration.

Top 12 Reasons I Voted Democrat

The top 12 reasons I voted Democrat.

12. I voted Democrat because I believe oil companies’ profits of 4% on a gallon of gas are obscene but the government taxing the same gallon of gas at 15% isn’t.

11. I voted Democrat because I believe the government will do a better job of spending the money I earn than I would.

10. I voted Democrat because Freedom of Speech is fine as long as nobody is offended by it.

9. I voted Democrat because I’m way too irresponsible to own a gun, and I know that my local police are all I need to protect me from murderers and thieves.

8. I voted Democrat because I believe that people who can’t tell us if it will rain on Friday can tell us that the polar ice caps will melt away in ten years if I don’t start driving a Prius.

7. I voted Democrat because I’m not concerned about millions of babies being aborted so long as we keep all death row inmates alive.

6. I voted Democrat because I think illegal aliens have a right to free health care, education, and Social Security benefits, and we should take away the social security from those who paid into it.

5. I voted Democrat because I believe that business should not be allowed to make profits for themselves. They need to break even and give the rest away to the government for redistribution as the Democrats see fit.

4. I voted Democrat because I believe liberal judges need to rewrite the Constitution every few days to suit some fringe kooks who would never get their agendas past the voters.

3. I voted Democrat because I think that it’s better to pay billions to people who hate us for their oil, but not drill our own because it might upset some endangered beetle, gopher or fish.

2. I voted Democrat because while we live in the greatest, most wonderful country in the world, I was promised “HOPE AND CHANGE”.

And, finally, the No. 1 reason to vote Democrat:

1. I voted Democrat because my head is so firmly planted up my rectal cavity; it’s unlikely that I’ll ever have another point of view.”

The 2 John's from Michigan

The two John’s from Michigan; John Dingell and John Conyers.

Dingell serving over 54 years and Conyers over 45 years represent all that is wrong in politics.

Our founding fathers are spinning in their graves watching what is happening to this country.

Dingell has never had a paycheck from a private company; he has been on the government payroll since 1955, he took over his father’s job.

Conyers has been there since 1965 and is the congressman that when asked if he would read the helthcare biil stated; stated, he would need “two attorneys’ and a week to get through it” Isn’t this his job? To represent the people and protect us from bills like these?

Let’s just take a look at how Michigan has fared under this democratic “leadership”

In 1948 Republicans had controlled both U.S. Senate seats from Michigan, held all statewide elected offices, and enjoyed a 95-5 majority in the state House and a 28-4 majority in the Senate.

In 1955 Michigan's per capita income was 16 percent above the U.S. average—among the highest in the world—and by 1960 the state had perhaps the world's broadest middle class. Michigan economy was ranked 8th in the nation.

By 1959 Democrats held U.S. Senate seats, all statewide partisan offices, 12 of the 34 state Senate seats, and 55 of the House's 110 seats, and continued to grow.

Michigan has been dominated by democratic US senators for the last 60 years.

Fast forward to 2010, under the democratic leadership, Michigan is now ranked 41st economically and we have the highest unemployment rate in the country. The Democratic Party likes to say that they stand up for the poor and working class, yet is was the democrats that fought civil rights in the 60’s, used hate and racist tactics such as the KKK to undermine the movement. I

t was President Lincoln, a republican who abolished slavery. The democrats are the party of choice for union leaders even if the membership does not agree. The union leadership donates millions of dollars of member’s dues to the Democratic Party, regardless of what the membership tells them. This is not representation of the working class; this is representation of the rich union leaders.

Obama has lied to the American people in his efforts to “transform” our republic into a socialist government.

This is a flawed governing style and has failed economically in every instance it was tried.

Obama is a member of the New Party, an organization of socialist street organizers intent on stealing tax money from those in the suburbs to give to the poor in the inner cities through a program known as Regional Tax Sharing. Look for this and anything with the word “regional” attached to it to surface in the coming months. This is where reparations come into full swing.
