    Help us to spread the truth, pass this on and help us to take our country back.
    The secret of freedom lies in educating people, whereas the secret of tyranny is in keeping them ignorant. (Maximilien Robespierre). Please take a few minutes and learn what you can do for our country. http://www.peakprosperity.com/crashcourse

    Fellow Americans, the election of 2012 will determine the faith of America and our loyalty and allegiance to this United state Government. This election will reflect the fundamental social change in our society, our American cultural values, our dependence in our government for our welfare and our self responsibility for our future and the future of our children.
    It is evident that our America, the one that fought for the American dream and the opportunities that came with that middle class life, that was based on expectation and human potential is dying. What made this country what it use to be, was the institution of marriage that connects men and women to one another and to their children. Parents spend more time helping to shape their children’s futures. That includes reading to them, providing after school sports, arts, and other enrichment projects. Having children was not something that happens to them; they plan to have children and celebrate their births as a legacy of their own existence. Having a marriage partner who shares in that celebration made the foundation of our country.
    Today we are a multicultural country, more divided than 50 years ago, with a population of illegal and legal immigrants that are not integrate into the American culture, at the top of the list are the Mexicans 35 millions of them with the biggest percent of babies born to single moms with incomes less than $15,000 per year, second are the blacks and other Latinos from Puerto Rico, central and south America that form this new class of welfare citizens. National
    data shows the average median net worth of married households is seven times the wealth of unmarried households.
    Married households are certainly more affluent than single parents and are positive, with views and an expectations that their children will exceed and surpass them. Life doesn’t happen to this group, they control their destiny as much as possible and that of their children.
    In contrast, single parents live in an insecure world where choices are limited and getting through the day may be a triumph, they are economic slaves that depends on the welfare and social service, with poor schooling and lousy prospects; this segment of our citizens are growing and will become the majority.
    This economic catastrophe will contribute to the demise of the middle class and destroy the institution of marriage, this will be the biggest threat to our country’s freedom it will be the life prospects that will divide the U.S into a society of few that have, and the majority that have-not.
    Our future depend on our ability to re-store our institution of marriage and the prospects of a better life for our children, good education; may be a college degree and good jobs.
    Fellow Americans, middle class expectations should be the norm, and we should have the inclination and drive to reinforce the norms that lead to a better life. President Obama constantly pitch his campaign messages to the America, the one that fought for the American dream and the opportunities that came with that middle class life, but he do not have the political will and inclination to reinforce the norms that will lead poor Americans to a better life.
    We need jobs in this country, but he do not have a clue as to how to create jobs for Americans, he have done nothing during the last four year, unemployment is not 8.2%; true unemployment is 14%. The news media is lying to the American people, they do not report the truth about employment in this united states.
    Education is the main factor for economic prosperity, but our education system it is not working, our inner cities schools are breeding grounds for gangs, drug trafficking and prostitution.
    Free Trade is the main problem and the cause of unemployment in our country and Obama continue making free trade agreements to benefit the multinational corporation.
    Our national debt is huge, 15.8 trillions Dollars and he refuse to balance the budget and pay our national debt, he is engage on a expending frenzy that devaluate the Dollar and created this inflation.
    The wars cost trillions of Dollars and he promised to end the wars, but to this day nothing is done; but in the name of national security he is engage in the intervention and overthrowing foreign legitimate elected governments.
    Americans have enough of Obama’s lies and deception; please get inform about the truth and vote for America.
    In God we Trust – God Blesses America the land of the free.

  2. We had a post about the drop in TV ratings last week. Here’s the update:

    AC Nielsen Television Ratings & Twitter

    NEW YORK (AP) — Michelle Obama has bragging rights over Ann Romney in one early measurement — television ratings: 26.2 million to 22.3 million.

    Meanwhile, Twitter said Michelle Obama was responsible for at least 28,003 tweets per minute shortly after she delivered her speech. Ann Romney’s peak was 6,195.
    was a big hit Monday in a measurement by the social media network.

    As for network ratings, NBC was first at 10 p.m., with just over 5 million viewers. CBS had 3.27 million and ABC had 3.24 million, PBS, had 3.8 million.

    On cable, Democratic-leaning MSNBC had 4.1 million (versus 1.5 last week), while Republican-leaning Fox had only 2.4 million (versus 6.9 last week). Neutral CNN had 3.89 million (1.5 million last week).

  3. The GOP doesn’t want to admit they know George Bush, but Bill Clinton didn’t have a problem with it, saying:

    “I worked with President Reagan on welfare reform and with President George H.W. Bush on national education goals. I am grateful to President George W. Bush for PEPFAR, which is saving the lives of millions of people in poor countries and to both Presidents Bush for the work we’ve done together after the South Asia tsunami, Hurricane Katrina and the Haitian earthquake.”

    • What about what we elected them to do………another dismal failure on the part of the American voter. But they do indeed want more of the same.

      • Billy:

        Well, I guess Clinton didn’t say they did what they were elected to do. Just that they did some good things. The GOP seems embarrassed by all their alumni.

        • Our Mayor here in Tampa was disturbed about the “relaxed security” in Charlotte. Thinks the police state is the only way to go like the GOP convention. 50 million dollars and 2 arrests. Like I posted tho one guy for blowing his nose. You can’t cover you face if there are security cameras in the area.

          • Billy:

            Yeah, I couldn’t believe they were planning on having the acceptance speech in an outdoor auditorium. Your mayor would have had a coronary.
