Re: PLEASE explain WHY you voted for OBAMA...Please!!!
I didn't, but one could argue:

*Obama stopped our economy's free fall. Gotta put on the brakes and bring an object in motion to a stop, before you can reverse course.

*Obama withstood Israel pressure to have America attack Iran.

*Obama saved General Motors (hence, tons of American jobs).

*Obamacare, which passed the Congress, and was upheld by the Supreme Court.

*Renewed the Bush tax cuts.

*Finally put the gay in the military issue to rest by allowing them in the military.

In short, Obama has done a lot of mopping up of problems that have plagued us for a while. Of course he's not a panacea. I don't agree with some of his policies. But I agree with much more than I thought I would when he started out.

Keep in mind, too, that when you cut federal government bloated bureaucracy, you're going to have a LOT of people out of work. Add to that the fact that these newly out of work federal workers will find it very difficult to transition into working in the private sector, because the economy isn't doing great. So I'm not sure this would be a good time to drastically cut federal bureaucracy; at least not until the economy and private sector pick up, so they can help absorb those who will lose their jobs when the federal bureaucracy is cut.

And I say this as a Ron Paul supporter who thinks the federal government should be cut drastically across the board (including defense).
 Quoting: Thor's Hamster


We have to remember than when we "cut the federal government", that sounds benign and all well and good (and it IS for the most part, in my opinion), but these are people's jobs who've become reliant on their government job (many of which aren't necessary, but simply employ certain constituencies). When those jobs are cut, people are out of work and put on welfare roles. Would we rather them be employed and paid, or unemployed and paid? At some point, this action will NEED to be taken. But it should wait until the private sector is more dynamic, and the economy shows signs of greater growth.
 Quoting: Thor's Hamster


The things that's a little unsettling about that is that we have very few manufacturing jobs to come back to. What are the jobs all these unemployed people are going to come back to? We've outsourced the vast majority of our manufacturing to cheaper labor in foreign countries.
 Quoting: Thor's Hamster


In my opinion, the federal government should give massive tax cuts to businesses and to individuals, in an effort to get businesses to expand (meaning purchase more equipment or expand, both of which require hiring more employees), and individuals to spend and/or invest, in order to spark the consumer spending part of our economy. Do this for four years to get people working and money flowing. Then see where we stand at that point.

That occurs with both political parties. It's just that they're not good at hiding it sometimes.

Republicans pay of their donors through wars, which benefit big oil, the military industrial complex, private contractors like Blackwater, and oil-related infrastructure industries like Halliburton. Is it any wonder that under Bush, America engaged in two wars?

So yes, Obama gives out phones and many other things. Of course he and the Democrats do. But Republicans also give out goodies.

That's why socialism never works. The other side also stops working. Brought down the USSR for sure.
 Quoting: EYESEE 12216780


I've just gotta say this...

Before Obama, I had healthcare INCLUDED as a job benefit - for me and my whole family. No deductibles, $5 copay.

NOW...different story. I'm paying nearly $500/month for crap insurance - HUGE deductible ($2000/person), $25 copay, and only 80% coverage. WHY?????

So I can pay for our dead-beats. So YOU don't have to pay. I get up 5 days a week, 52 weeks a year, to work 9+ hour days...so I can support the other HALF of the country. On top of that my husband has been laid off - we have no food stamps, no unemployment, no government assistance. We take care of ourselves. I wish the rest would do the same.

Nuff said. Had to share. Trying to be warm and fuzzy here, but not doing a great job of putting up with the idea I have to support those lying in bed every day, eating bon bons as I slave and toil and lose my edge - I may as well quit working too. Trust me. I am the NEW SLAVE.

how has your employers ownership changed in that same time frame?

this is exactly what the Private Equity firms that are buying up all our companies do to everyone. layoff & outsource as much as possible, kill the benefits for those that stay, hire temps & "contractors" instead of "employees" when they need actual work done. offer crap benefits thru the contract companies so they can advertise that they have them. it's crippling our economy & we're not developing the next generation of talent.

1. He made it so my children had the ability to be covered under our medical insurance, even though they are young adults and on their own. There is no way they would have been able to afford the kind of medical coverage they now enjoy had he not changed existing laws. With my daughter's shaky medical history…this has been a life saver for her..literally!
2. He extended UI benefits for people such as myself and my husband who found ourselves let go at our job through no fault of our own due to California’s “At Will” employment laws and forced to live on the UI extension benefits that Obama signed into law until we could find work again.
3. He brought home many troops by Christmas last year so that folks like my son could enjoy the holidays with their families instead of spending them in a God forsaken country surrounded by hostiles and road side bombs.
4. He was instrumental in finding, capturing and executing Osama Bin Ladin, one of the most notorious criminals of our time.
5. He got the auto industry back up and running when they were ready to throw in the towel. This in turn saved countless jobs and kept a recession from becoming a very dangerous depression.

For these reasons and many others, I proudly voted him in for a second term. He earned it!! headbang
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 13547009


Thank you. And your story is actually one I expect is very much the same across the country.

Unfortunately, the unemployment, I fear, is only going to get worse. Regardless, when half the country is trying to support the other half - of course, that can't work.

What we really needed was to get this country BACK to work. Not enrolling in UI and Welfare. I also hear our servicement have been down-graded in their health benefits. Ask your son. It is huge. And disgustingly, our government's union workers received an Upgrade in their health care under Obama.

I fear improvement and jobs growth will never happen now - at least for 4 more years. And then, my fear is, no matter what we try - it will be too late. I feel we lost our country tonight, our liberty, our freedom and ANY hope. I pray that I am dead wrong. Dead wrong.

I'm so sad that my children and grand-children will live in a very, very different America because of the bribery of this current administration. Bribery works. It was proven tonight.

1. He made it so my children had the ability to be covered under our medical insurance, even though they are young adults and on their own. There is no way they would have been able to afford the kind of medical coverage they now enjoy had he not changed existing laws. With my daughter's shaky medical history…this has been a life saver for her..literally!
2. He extended UI benefits for people such as myself and my husband who found ourselves let go at our job through no fault of our own due to California’s “At Will” employment laws and forced to live on the UI extension benefits that Obama signed into law until we could find work again.
3. He brought home many troops by Christmas last year so that folks like my son could enjoy the holidays with their families instead of spending them in a God forsaken country surrounded by hostiles and road side bombs.
4. He was instrumental in finding, capturing and executing Osama Bin Ladin, one of the most notorious criminals of our time.
5. He got the auto industry back up and running when they were ready to throw in the towel. This in turn saved countless jobs and kept a recession from becoming a very dangerous depression.

For these reasons and many others, I proudly voted him in for a second term. He earned it!! headbang

Unfortunately, the unemployment, I fear, is only going to get worse. Regardless, when half the country is trying to support the other half - of course, that can't work.

What we really needed was to get this country BACK to work. Not enrolling in UI and Welfare. I also hear our servicement have been down-graded in their health benefits. Ask your son. It is huge. And disgustingly, our government's union workers received an Upgrade in their health care under Obama.

I fear improvement and jobs growth will never happen now - at least for 4 more years. And then, my fear is, no matter what we try - it will be too late. I feel we lost our country tonight, our liberty, our freedom and ANY hope. I pray that I am dead wrong. Dead wrong.

I'm so sad that my children and grand-children will live in a very, very different America because of the bribery of this current administration. Bribery works. It was proven tonight.

This is wonderful for you and your family. However, for me and my family, my business of over 20 years has dwindled from 17 employees when Obama was elected, to 3 employees now and I am barely hanging on. I don't know why the economy is so bad, but I know that obamacare doesn't matter because it would cost me $2,000 per month to insure myself, husband, and four kids. I can not afford it. This is as much as my mortgage payment. Also, I know many other business owners who are in the same boat. The strip mall I am in is nearly deserted. Business, especially in California, are closing left and right. Tonight a new business tax passed on businesses that do business in California even if they are based in another state-they now must pay California income tax in addition to there own state tax. This will drive more businesses and jobs out of CA. Unemployment will skyrocket as will welfare. My husband and I are seriously discussing leaving USA or to another state that is not FUBAR.
Thank you. And your story is actually one I expect is very much the same across the country.

Romney won the popular vote. America needs to do away with electoral voting.

Let me summarize for you:

1. Over regulating an industry.

2. Handouts.

3. Distortion and obfuscation while he started two more wars.

4. Fabrication.

5. Handouts. They should have thrown in the towel because of their idiocy, but, The Kenyan helped them out. Of course, it had nothing to do with buy the votes of the union members.

AC: You Are A Tool. How does it feel to be owned? Back on the slave ship? Guess you don't care 'cause you don't know.

Enjoy your chains, everyone. I voted for the only real choice: Ron Paul. I voted my conscience. Anyone who didn't is a tool.

1. something had to be done! He at least had the courage to do SOMETHING! My children are benefiting from it. And ALL of them work!

2. No that would be Welfare, NOT unemployment of which I paid helped into! No shame there thank you very much. I've worked my ass off since I was 10 years old and I'm 43 now.

3. Tell that to those families who welcomed their loved ones home for the holidays. Loved ones who sacrificed so much for many ungrateful people in this country.

4. I have only the media to go on for this, but I believe other positive things about this man, tell me that America's best interests were at heart during this mission.

5. If Ron Paul was on the ballot, he would have been my first choice. But he was not and so I voted for Obama. ANYTHING to keep Romney from being the leader of the free world.
