Where it all started

Now, if you are all like me, you are watching the news and seeing all of these companies going under and asking for the government to help them out. Why in the world should they? These are private companies that are going under because of the inept way that they were run. I mean, if you start a business and then lose everything they don't give you money so that you can stay in business. Why should they do it just because it is a bigger company? Why should they spend the money that you and I give them to bail out companies that took other people's money and then mismanaged it to the point of failure?

Obama is going around saying that the government needs to regulate this more. But, check this out. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac was started by the government as a private venture to ensure that more people could buy a home. It started encouraging the current housing situation by buying up all the mortgages that crooked companies like Countrywide were providing to people who could not even afford to pay them back. Then, when these people could not pay their mortgage, that put these two companies in a bad way. Now, the taxpayers are paying $200 billion to keep these companies from going under. The government has been regulating these two companies right into the ground. And, two of the people that ran these companies, and profited quite nicely from them, are two of Obama's biggest advisers on the economy. Why should we trust these people? This is the reason that the real estate industry has gone south.

Obama said, in a two minute message to America, "I approve this message because bitter partisan fights and outworn ideas of the left and the right won't solve the problems we face today, but a new spirit of unity and shared responsibility will." New spirit of unity? Is he kidding? He sounds just like Nancy Pelosi did when she was running and facing becoming the Speaker of the House of Representatives as the most senior Democrat, which party is now the majority of the House and the Senate. I will reach across the isle and involve the Republicans. She has done the exact opposite. She wouldn't even acknowledge the Republicans who wanted to debate the subject of offshore drilling. She took a month long vacation. SHARED RESPONSIBILITY??? What ever happened to holding someone responsible for their own actions? This is a SOCIALIST idea if I ever heard one.

I truly feel that if Obama gets elected, then this country will face some of the darkest days it has in quite a long time. And this is just on the economy.

Then, news has come out that Obama, while he was over in Iraq, he discussed with the President of Iraq and tried to strike a deal to keep all of our troops there until after the election. What gives him the right to do that? NOTHING!!! He wants credit for bringing the troops home. Now, there has been an announcement that the withdrawal will begin very soon. Not all of them, mind you, but, a withdrawal none the less. Obama is NOT the President, and hopefully never will be. This, along with all of the other anti American things that spill out of his mouth on a regular basis, is borderline treason. Don't get me wrong, I respect his right to have a different opinion, and his right to speak this opinion. That doesn't mean that I have to like it. And, I don't. I don't want him to be President. I don't even want him in the Senate. But, since he is not representing my state, then, I guess I will have to put up with him in some way.
