Where Does President Obama Want to Take us "Forward" To?

President Obama's campaign slogan is "Foward," but where is "Forward" going to take us?

We are less than 60 days from the 2012 presidential elections and President Obama is a continuing disaster to this country's economy. As each day goes by, all I can do is become more frustrated, not only with the President's policies, but his dividing rhetoric. The lies. The double-talk. The double-standards. Divide and Conquer should be the theme of Obama 2012 instead of their campaign slogan of "Forward." 

And I ask the question: Forward to where?

Forward to where even more Americans are on food-stamps?

Forward to having more Americans receive government assistance?

Forward to doubling and tripling the deficit?

Forward to adding more to the debt?

Forward to more unemployment?

Forward to more Americans leaving the work force?

We need, I repeat, need a president who understands that the greatest powers of the American economy are the American enterpenuer and the American individual--not the government.

Businesses that have the money to hire (and there are quite a few larger companies in this group) are afraid to hire currently as they do not know how much this administration's health care is going to cost per employee. Therefore, many are making the smart business decision to not hire.

O'Bama? Damn, now he's an Irishman too?

Oh, there's our friend Wilson's Toupe again, being the political police. Ordering people how to write, complaining about their dictation. What's next? Criticism for not including an index and table of contents? What's wrong with you?

Wake up. The government ensures businesses are protected from the law providing they pay protection money: campaign donations. Obama got a billion bucks in 08, so he unchained the Kraken (Wall street) which has thoroughly looted this country of just about every ounce of capital legitimate business would use to hire workers. Deluded liberals think if think can just control the government, they can use its immense powers to do good. Well, the supra-elitist Barack Hussein Obama HAD supreme control over the executive and the legislature. But every single member of that government was perversely corrupt and now we see the results. A cesspit of waste, corruption, and mind-numbing incompetence.

Wait, it's a smart business decision not to hire people? I'll bet it's a smart business decision to pay people as little as possible. And to provide as few benefits to people as possible. In fact, without any business regulations at all, businesses would be booming. Which is why in countries with weak government regulations like Eastern Europe and Latin America there are so many successful businesses. And the people are paid a living wage, even though the government doesn't force them to.
