WE STILL KNOW NOTHING ABOUT BARACK OBAMA
We know nothing about Barack Obama thanks to the mainstream media refusal to tell America about the true Obama. There are so many black holes in his past, there are years of what looks like he fell off the face of the planet. What little we do know through documented accounts are the few bills he has actually voted for or sponsored which leaves me to question his loyalty or definition of America. He left 130 other votes as present, that's not leadership and it's not a person with conviction. What it is is a person wanting to conceal his true intentions. Now you can say you believe in America all you want, but if the people who influenced and shaped your ideology have nothing but contempt for America and its people, I have to challenge that assertion. Obama like all of us has choices; we choose who we work with, who we interact with, who we make alliances with and we make these choices because we share the same beliefs and the same ideology. Obama had ample opportunity to align himself with many other people, but instead he chose to align himself with people and groups who have intense hatred for America. When you choose to sit at the table with people like that, you do so because you share their hatred and disdain for America. That belief is coming to fruition. Everything to date that Obama has implemented is on coarse to destroy this country.
OBAMA IS ANTI SECOND AMENDMENT
Obama is anti Second Amendment, he does NOT believe in your right to protect yourself. He is the biggest gun control supporter on the left and all you have to do is look at his voting record. You have to pay close attention to what he says when he is challenged about his position and your Second Amendment rights. Where he has voted:
• Voted NO on prohibiting lawsuits against gun manufacturers. (Jul 2005)
• Several Illinois state legislators introduced SB 2165 to protect the right of self-defense for residents (2003). True to form, Obama voted against the pro-gun legislation
• On January 18, 2007, Senator Obama voted against a pro-gun amendment to strike language in S. 1 that would infringe upon the free speech rights of groups like Gun Owners of America. The amendment, which passed, struck requirements that would have required GOA to monitor and report on its communications with its members, and could easily have led to government demands for GOA's membership list (a.k.a. registration).
What he says:
• Ok for states & cities to determine local gun laws. (Apr 2008)
• FactCheck: Yes, Obama endorsed Illinois handgun ban. (Apr 2008)
• Respect 2nd Amendment, but local gun bans ok. (Feb 2008)
• The concealed carry of firearms is another important issue for gun owners, and yet Obama is not only opposed to citizens carrying guns, he supports using federal laws to override those states which currently allow the practice.
The third bullet is really illustrative of a contradiction in the same sentence and complete ignorance of the U.S. Constitution and the Second amendment. You cannot respect the 2nd Amendment and at the same time support local gun bans. Local gun bans DO NOT supersede the U.S. Constitution unless you don't believe in the U.S. Constitution. Listen to what he says, he has NEVER once said he believes or supports the 2nd Amendment. Using the word respect is a way to avoid being nailed on the position.
OBAMA SAYS 95% OF AMERICANS WILL GET A TAX CUT
That really sounds nice, warm, fuzzy, and feels like he's on my side until you look at the numbers. Why I question this and why it's another lie straight from Obama is simple, the numbers don't add up. How do you give 95% of America a tax cut when 30% to 35% don't pay taxes now? While I'm thinking about it, isn't that being unpatriotic according to Joe Bidden? Why are we giving 95% of America a tax cut when he says it's patriotic to pay higher taxes? The answer is simple; none of you are getting a tax cut. It's all smoke in order to get your vote because whether you like or not they know you are too stupid or lazy to care. They understand that the average American has the attention span of an insect. They understand you know more about the contestants on Dancing With The Stars than you do about the issues and how they impact you. They've successfully year after year convinced you that the money you earned is not yours to keep, that it's theirs and they're just letting you have some. A tax cut is not a government benefit or government handout. A tax cut means you keep more of what you earned. However, they also have made you feel guilty about that as well. Look what Obama, Biden, and the media have done to Joe the Plumber. They've criticized him, made fun of him, and investigated his entire life all in attempt to marginalize his idea of hard work and desire to own a business, to be independent; maybe even independently wealthy was foolish. Do you understand the message here? Obama and the democrats don't want you to be wealthy, they don't want you independent, they want you dependent, and they want to be the arbiters of your income.
SMALL BUSINESSESS WILL NOT PAY TAXES SINCE MOST DON'T MAKE OVER $250,000
Really? The SBA (Small Business Administration) has put the lie to that and Obama forgot to check their statistics or maybe he's counting on your ignorance to not check it out. Let's go through the list of small businesses by industry and the maximum annual receipts for these businesses.
• Crop Production: $750,000
• Animal production except from cattle and chicken/eggs: $750,000
• Cattle feedlots: $25 million
• Chicken/egg production: $125 million
• Forest/logging: $7 million
• Fishing: $4 million
• Irrigational, sewage, and water supply: $7 million
• Housing construction & under $33.5 million
• Heavy and civil engineering construction: $33.5 million
• Dredging and cleanup: $20M
• Concrete, framing, and other housing contractors: $14M
• Car dealers: $23-29M
• RV, motorcycle, & boat dealers: $7M (note: These businesses are the hardest hit now because of the slow economy - they discretionary purchases and the consumer is not buying and Obama is going bankrupt them)
• Furniture, hardware, clothing & sporting good stores: under $7 million
• Supermarkets, gas stations & department stores: $27M
• Pharmacies: $7M
Are you getting the picture yet? Want some more numbers? These are based on the most recent data from 2002. $100,000 to $499,000 figure, there are 2,387,780 firms; two million establishments, there are about 8.8 million workers. There are a total of 5,697,759 firms (small business), 1.2 million of them have less than a hundred thousand dollars in receipts which makes them sole proprietorships; 2.3, almost 2.4 million are between 100 and $500,000. And then as you go higher, the numbers decrease. But when you add them all up, you find that... No matter how you look at it, is the point -- whether you look at it as number of employees, whether you look at it as receipts -- there's no way Obama's even close to the truth on this.
