|Although President Barack Obama has faced much animosity and continuous discord from our
U.S. government officials, he has accomplished a lot in his 3 1/2 years of his presidency.
In spite of all the strife, he has managed to do the following:
|I know some people have not been listening to both candidates for the last 18 months and even some, have not watched
the news and/or may have missed what the Republicans are pushing for. Additionally, I am not sure if some people are
aware of the GOP's "strategy" for winning. Yes, they will tell you anything to win. (Remember what former RNC
chairmen Michael Steele said, "It's how the game is played." And Representative Phil Gingrey chairman of the GOP
Doctors caucus who told CNN that, "The Republican - the conservative candidate in the primary is always gonna
lean right and ...and come back to the center for the general...the opposite for the democrat. Uh That's all you're
seeing here. It's ..it's very typical. We strong conservatives understand that. So this is campaign strategy.")
Whether some call it "strategy" or deception, this is what I have learned over the past 3 1/2 years while President Obama
has been fighting the "Party of No":
They want to take away your Social Security
on entitlement programs is to “raise taxes on people.”
They want to end Medicare
either Social Security or Medicare as Romney sees them as government issued programs and not
They want to keep health insurance companies from covering sick children
They want to end food stamps
They want to wipe out Labor Unions
Republican Party. For years, Unions have played an enormous positive role in raising the levels of
They want to make it legal for businesses to discriminate
They want to abolish minimum wage laws
They want to send more American job overseas
They want to end workplace safety regulations
They want to slash job-training programs that help the unemployed
They want to take away your pensions
They want to end your right to collectively bargain with your employer
They want to ban the unemployed from being considered for employment
They want to abolish the Environmental Protection Agency
They want to pollute the air we breathe
They want pollute the water we drink
They refuse to vote for cleaner, more efficient energy sources
They want to allow oil companies to rape America’s environmental treasures for any trace amount of oil
They want to persecute non-Christians
They want declare a state religion
They want to make cohabitation before marriage a crime
They took America hostage during the debt ceiling debate
as though they desire to hold back in helping Americans as long as it will mean a failure for Obama. The
debt ceiling has been raised 79 times since 1960; 49 times under Republican presidents and 30 times under
They want to reinstate ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell'
moving our country forward.
They want to segregate our schools
They want to deny aid to Americans who go through natural disasters
They want to end funding for natural disaster warning systems
They want to take away the right to vote by suppressing votes
They want to make abortion illegal, even in cases of rape
abortion as illegal in every State. This would mean if abortion was illegal in your State, a woman would not
be allowed to travel to another State to have it done. Todd Akin, a Republican who is running for the
senate in Missouri claimed that women could biologically avoid becoming pregnant in cases of "legitimate
rape". At first the majority of Republicans condemned him, but now, they are rallying around him as if he
said nothing wrong.
They want to abolish the corporate income tax
They want to raise YOUR taxes but not taxes on the wealthy
but we are STILL losing!
They don’t support health care for every American citizen
They want to allow health insurance companies to drop people
They want to illegally spy on American citizens
They want more wars
well as Iran.
They want to make laws requiring every person to own a gun whether you like guns or not
They encourage gun violence
They want to keep women from earning equal pay for equal work
They want kill Planned Parenthood and end critical health care services for women
is women's issues therefore it is only reasonable to vote for Obama/Biden. As a female, I will not and
cannot vote for Romney/Ryan, as I know they do not have my best interest in mind. It is obvious to me that
the Republicans do not like women.
They want to overturn Roe vs. Wade
They want to ban contraceptives and condoms
They want to kill homosexuals
homosexuality every chance they get. Of course, that is just my opinion, but I cannot help but to believe it -
based on what they have said just recently.
They want to end unemployment benefits
They want our infrastructure to crumble
as it will mean a fail for Obama and a win-win for them.
They have voted to end 1.9 million jobs and have created zero
growth and pushing down the unemployment rate next year, according to economists surveyed by
Bloomberg News. Based on this chart, supplied by the U.S. Bureau of Economics, the last four Democrat
Presidents have created more jobs than Republicans.
They want to end the independent judiciary branch, and turn it into a strictly conservative branch
and judiciary? I'm not sure what their proposal means and I will have to investigate further. Until then, I
can only assume that they are proposing to have Congress decide the judicial branch so that they can
implement the laws. To take away this right from the President and give it to Congress or whomever has
power of the Senate or Congress.
They want President Obama to fail at all costs as they have said that their number one priority is to make sure Obama
is a 1-term president
They want to continue the same failed economic policies that put us into a recession
They rewrite and distort history - denying Obama's successes or even worse, taking credit for Obama's
They refuse to give any credit to President Obama for ordering the killing of Osama Bin Laden
was killed under Obama’s watch is just a coincidence. The Right will suggest that Osama bin Laden was
actually a figurehead at this point and his death means nothing. Osama’s death is a vindication of George
Bush’s misadventures in the Middle East. History will remember him well.
They want to repeal portions of the Constitution
They want to end public education for all
They want to repeal the Voting Rights Act
They care more about Wall Street than they do about Main Street
They think corporations are people
They want to make it legal to kill doctors who provide abortions
They want to deport Hispanics, whether they were born here or not
he proposed to repeal the Dream Act. They continue to call Latinos "illegals" whereas they are not, but
instead undocumented workers. They continue to say they want to get rid of people who were not born
here, yet neither Justin Bieber nor Ted Koppel was born in these divided states.
They support Israel’s President over our own
Additionally, some Countries feel that Romney should not have said that Jerusalem was the capital of
Israel. It seems as though the GOP is trying to turn Jewish voters against Obama by creating an
unnecessary divide. They have also accused Obama of not providing the necessary aid to Israel, but that
is totally canard. Obama provided Israel with the largest amount of American military aid in U.S. history,
They refuse to acknowledge that 9/11 occurred during the Bush Administration
They want to pull America out of the United Nations
Yes, there are problems with the U.N., but I believe it keeps everyone from acting hastily to resolve
menacing issues. I believe they are in place to pose as a moderator.
They support torture
They want to teach creationism in schools
to be unconstitutional, irrespective of how it may be purveyed in theological or religious instruction. In the
United States, intelligent design has been represented as an alternative explanation to evolution in recent
decades, but a lower court has ruled its "demonstrably religious, cultural, and legal missions"
They reject science
many of them have a problem accepting scientific orthodoxy. All the main contenders for the Republican
presidential nomination reject the notion that climate change is a result of human activity.
They make government ineffective
They want to privatize prisons to put more people in jail
They want end funding for legal services for the poor
They want to end Miranda Rights
protects against abuse of government authority in a legal procedure.
They think all liberals are un-American
They declared fiscal martial law in a Michigan town and fired the legally elected local government
They approved of Representative Joe Walsh of shouting "You lie" during President Obama's State Of The Union
They refuse to cut the Defense budget, which if cut in half would still be the largest defense budget in the world
They approved of Texas GOP Congressman Joe Barton's apology to BP CEO Tony Hayward
was a "White House shakedown", and so they apologized to the man that was in charge of the
They take orders from the Koch brothers
They sign pledges drawn up by conservative activists, and ignore their pledge to serve the constituents who voted for
They use conservative media to push the right wing agenda even if it means distorting the news or flat out lying
They want to cut nutrition programs for children
budget cuts, laying out about $32 billion in overall cuts, but without naming any specific program
reductions. Ryan has been justifying his refusal to name a specific program that he would cut from the
budget by punting to the Appropriations Committee. “[Naming specifics] is what is gonna happen in the
appropriations process down the road. So I can’t tell you the answer to that because, as a budget
committee person, we simply lower the cap and then those things go down,” Ryan said.
Cuts also include:
They want to cut housing and energy assistance programs that help poor people
family well-being, Congress cut funding for LIHEAP by about $1.6 billion, or more than 30 percent
between fiscal years 2010 and 2012, from $5.1 billion to $3.47 billion.
They agreed with South Carolina Senator Jim DeMint when he called the striking Chicago teachers “thugs”
as opposed to seeking solutions or making an attempt to find “common ground” on issues of concern.
