The 2012 election is less than a month away and there are crucial factors that need to be weighed as we deliberate on our choice for president. These are some question we need to ask. Do I want a president who:
Is endororsed by Hugo Chavez of Venezuela and Vladimir Putin of Russia?
Appoints “czars” so the vetting and confirmation process through Congress is skirted?
Disregards the Constitution that only grants 18 powers to the federal government?
Pits classes of people against each other?
Pulls out the “racial” card when questioned or challenged?
Is for killing the unborn and voted 4 times while an Illinois senator not to save babies that survived late tern abortions?
Will be able to appoint several liberal judges to the Supreme Court?
Appeases radicals after our ambassador to Libya and three security officers were murdered in a preplanned terrorist attack on 9/11/12?
Refuses to give security backup to our ambassadors serving in volatile environments?
Does not tell the American people the truth about the terrorist attack on the Bengazi Consulate in Libya on 9/11/12?
Boosts our national debt to over 16 trillion without any concern?
Adds another 6 trillion to our deficit during his 4 years in office without any concern?
Kicks Israel under the bus?
Is gutting our military and making our country vulnerable to attack?
Belongs to a party that originally had God and Israel taken out of the platform?
Is dismantling the greatest health care system in the world and creating a federal health board that will make health choices for us?
Picks and chooses the winners and losers in American business?
Is creating an over reaching and over regulating Federal Government? Creates dependency not self-responsibility?
Has increased food stamp spending 100% since he took office?
Has corruption at the highest levels of government?
May move Gitmo detainees to a newly purchased prison in Illinois?
Obamacare is increasing insurance premiums by 19% for those businesses who provide health insurance for their employees,
Has taken public stands against freedom of speech?
I love my country. My ancestors came to America for religious freedom and those freedoms are being eroded. This election is the most important election in my lifetime and the choices couldn't be clearer if you are paying attention to what is happening in our country.
