    Obama inherited a disaster......

    Obama and his Big Government wants to make everyone dependent/subservient to the Federal Government:

    1. The poor have become dependent on the government. There are more poor in this country than when the Federal Government began it's "War on Poverty", and the Fed's have spent trillions on programs for the poor. The problem is, when government programs make it comfortable to be poor, there is no need for the poor to try and better themselves. There are more poor people on disability (don't want to work), medicaid, food stamps,free housing, and welfare and a host of other government freebies.

    2. Obama's Fed government is now turning to the middle class to make them dependent also. The more the middle class becomes dependent on the government, the quicker the middle class will descend to poverty, on the same level as the poor class.

    3. State governments have now become dependent on handouts and programs from the Federal government. The Feds gave the states money/programs during hard times and the states expect those freebies to continue.

    Most of the rest of the world has moved away from the bankrupt ideas of socialism/communism/big government. Prosperous new countries like China, India, and Brazil are moving toward private economies. But Obama has his eyes on returning the U.S. to a socialist ("Don't worry be happy, the government will take care of you") country.

    Well good luck with that.

    • I have been keeping on the sidelines because I'm interested to hear what others are saying. Your remarks are right on target. This administration is one of a welfare(socialist) state, and I can only hope that there are enough genuine Americans out there that see this is a dangerous proposition. This administration needs to be voted OUT. A new administration might not be the end-all be- all, but it would at least give us a chance to put a (temporary) halt on the socialist path and might give us a chance to educate our children about the dangers of a runaway governmrnt.
