People Are Speaking Out

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with South Florida Real Estate & Development, Inc. BK3027955

Many people in this country just won't speak about politics or religion - because it creates tension.

People just do not like to rock the boat - argue politics is not worth it for some folks.

But these times are the exception - people who never spoke out about government are now speaking out.

42% of Americans believe Obama is doing a good job - that leaves 58% of the country do not approve of the way Obama is handling the crisis of this country.

In just two short years of this Obama presidency - he is creating a heart cry of the American people who are not happy about the way this president is leading this country.

Wrong decisions, socialist agendas, massive and unsustainable government spending, inexperienced foreign policy, no response to secure our borders, slow response to stop the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

People - do you feel better now that Obama's hope and change has been implemented in America?

As long as we have a left and a right aisle, we will always have split decisions.  I would love to have someone put to the test.  If someone came up with a new law to get passed, and they did not disclose what party affiliation they were, and they were one of our governing bodies, the bill would either get passed with flying colors, or have the majority deny it most likely.  There are way to many party line voters in our government.  They do not work for the people, they work for their job and party.

I agree with Don.  I have becoming more vocal, with the idea that we really do need to eliminate the concept of party affiliations and let people and ideas run on their own merits

Jewel - Don't buy that mess - Ronald Reagan inherited Jimmy Carter's mess and he never complained about it - and this is not worse than that - Reagan inherited 18% interest rates on mortgages, Iran hostages, Panama Canal, Berlin Wall, etc, he did not go around the world and apologize for America - but spoke about the greatness of America - he inspired Americans to work hard and not depend upon government handouts - Obama does the exact opposite.

Bryan - Thomas Jefferson and John Adams would agree with you!! Less government is which this country was founded upon - Obama lost the vision and is trying to establish another vision in which our founding father's fought against!

Don - I don't agree with you, I think the two party system has worked and brought greatness to this country - the problem lies in one party adopting and being overcome with socialist ideas of big government and  bringing many people under bondage of government programs and handouts!

Nick,

You know I never like to express my political opinions, LOL but with the election of Obama this country was thrown into the biggest battle for our future existence than we have ever seen. . Our enemies have not been able to inflict as much damage in over  two hundred years as Obama has in less than two years. Thats what happens when you elect a baby-killer.

Hugh - I know you have kept your political views close toyour vest - but some of us close to you know how you feel - Obama will go down as a traitor to the United States Constitution - he has tried to revision his views on the Constitution but he can't make those of us who actually read it believe that big government and American dependence upon government handouts is what our founding fathers's vision of America - he should be impeached for incompetence and inexperience at best - Pelosi and Reid and Obama should be sent back to university to learn how to read the Constitution!

We can't expect to much of the President.  We knew he had no executive experience and radical views before he was elected.  Apparently his good looks and slick speeches tricked many Americans into overlooking the important stuff on what makes a good President.

Nicolas you make a lot of great points.

I do believe the two party system has eroded to the point where party views and positions are more important that doing what is right for the Country.

Our Country was founded on the concept of limited government. Unfortunately, we are being led down a course of Government entitlement and Government granted rights. Our constitution and government was never meant to guarantee every citizen a home, a job, or healthcare. One just has to read some of Jefferson's works to understand our founding father's concerns over the exact course our Government is taking.

Speak up and get your neighbors to speak up!

Nick- I notice you are typing in BIG BOLD LETTERS now.

Whatever it takes to get the message through!

I'm tired of hearing about Obama's inheritance.  How much longer can he continue to blame Bush for the crisis are country is facing?  Did Bush blame Clinton for 911 because he didn't work hard enough during his term to fight the terrorists?  No, he didn't.

Each administration has to deal with the problems our country faces when they take office.

You wrote about - Wrong decisions, socialist agendas, massive and unsustainable government spending, inexperienced foreign policy, no response to secure our borders, slow response to stop the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

Don't ignore the lies, trickery and deceit. 

BTW, you can NOT whine about "inherited the problems" when you campaigned vigorously for the job and the problems that your knew conveyed.

I suspect that most Americans see through the blame game.

Hells bells*, the ONLY thing he inherited that he did NOT vote for was Iraq, and what he got in that regard was a mess already cleaned up!
