Top 10 Why not vote for Obama

Only a few days left until the elections.   I would implore everyone to think this weekend before voting.  Agree or disagree with me I think you should spend more time reflecting on the future of this country than if the Chiefs should have a new QB or GM.

Here are some of my thoughts why I will not vote for Obama.  My top 10:

1.      He has spent more than any previous President, yet complains he has not spent enough.
2.      He got his stimulus plan and failed to deliver on the promise of unemployment.
3.      His bailout of GM was nothing more than payoffs to unions, using our tax dollars, to insure more union dues flowed into his campaign, while investors were left out in the cold. While thousands of non-union workers lost their jobs.
4.       He had a Democrat Congress for half his term yet still complains the Republicans were his road block. Oh, and he could not get one vote for his budget, even from a Democrat. The Democrats failed to pass a single budget.  Yet he blames Republicans for being obstructionists.
5.      He has taken more money than any President in our lifetime. Government revenues are at the highest level since WW II as a percent of GDP. Yet, the answer still is to raise taxes higher.  Raising taxes will not raise the revenues expected and will be detrimental to the country as explained here
6.      Even with record revenues he has the largest deficits ever.
7.      Last year he spent almost $60,000 for every family in poverty, yet poverty has not decreased.
8.      He got his Obamacare promising the cost of healthcare would go down. Yet costs have gone up. For my thoughts on a better way and why it is bad not only bad for America, but bad for the World, read here!/2012/10/a-better-approach-to-health-care.html
9.      AFTER THE ELECTION I fear what he has planned.  He has told the Russian ambassador he will have more freedom to do things AFTER THE ELECTION. He has told businesses not to announce layoffs until AFTER THE ELECTION. He has stopped the implementation of Obamacare, which will cut Medicare and the letters to inform seniors, until AFTER THE ELECTION. All of these he choose not to do…..not because of obstructionist  Republicans, but because he wants to hide these things from YOU until AFTER THE ELECTION. 
10.  And, finally to get to a very current event, his policy of walk softly and carry a golf club has resulted in the rape and murder of persons in Libya and he has followed the same policy of blame and trying to push it off until after the election to cover it up.

I believe all of these things are hastening the predictions of both Marx and Jefferson.

"Democracy is a form of government that cannot long survive, for as soon as the people learn that they have a voice in the fiscal policies of the government, they will move to vote for themselves all the money in the treasury, and bankrupt the nation."
— Karl Marx
"When the people find they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic."
— Benjamin Franklin

These are my individual thoughts.  Not cut and pasted thoughts of someone else.  This election, think for yourself.
