I have spent the past six weeks putting together a website called Christian Vote for a close friend of mine. I am not a spiritual person and while I don't share the religious overtones and content within this website I absolutely agree with my friend's assertion that liberal media bias is adversely affecting the minds of many American voters and those who are preparing to register to vote. I have always felt considerable disdain for politics and even greater disdain for the Democrat political party. In the past I have largely ignored the foibles and shenanigans that regularly occur within Congress and including various past U.S. presidents and members of their respective administrations. Not anymore. The current American president, Barack Obama, may be the worst commander-in-chief the United States has EVER had.
Under President Obama our national debt has reached $16 trillion dollars, unemployment remains chronically high with an official Department Of Labor statistic of 8.1%. That stat does not include those able bodied and unemployed Americans who have given up looking for work altogether. When including those no longer working for work the actual unemployment rate is much higher and likely around 14-15%. One in seven Americans currently receive welfare and/or food stamps simply to pay their basic bills and feed themselves. An independent report by the Institute Of Medicine recently concluded that the U.S. health care system wastes $750 billion annually in unnecessary and redundant paperwork, excessive administrative costs/fees and outright fraud. Despite this the Democrats, and President Obama, plan to implement "Obamacare", a nationalized health care system that will result in an even bigger government intrusion into our health care system, something I find appalling given the sorry track record of accounting and fiscal responsibility among government agencies.
I hope those checking out this blog who are planning to vote in November will take the time to also check out Christian Vote. I will be maintaining this website and posting updates to the site on a regular basis. Click the link below or the title of this blog entry to see this new website. Thanks!
