|PRESIDENT OBAMA AT $35,000 A PLATE 50TH BIRTHDAY PARTY|
THE KEY TO THE NEXT ELECTION IS VOTER TURN OUT, in my opinion. Of the 235+ million Americans of voting age, only 90+ million, or a paltry 37%, voted in 2010! As the conservative stability of the Eisenhower 50's gave way to the powerful and cultural upheavals of the 60's, voter turn out at that time was almost double today's voter turn out.
1960 - 63.1% - Kennedy
1964 - 61.9% - Johnson
1968 - 60.8% - Nixon
Currently, U. S. Political Idealogy is stable with Conservatiives leading; Conservatives 41%, Moderates 36% and Liberals 21%.
PRESIDENT OBAMA'S APPROVAL FOR JULY 26-28 HIT A NEW LOW OF 40%. Only Jimmy Carter had a lower Job Approval rating in August of their third year in office:
While campaigning for president, Obama lamented that the "war in Iraq" cost each American household $100 a month. Using the same yardstick, welfare cost each American household $560 per month in 2009 and $638 in 2010. In his first two years in office President Obama increased annual welfare spending from $522 Billion to $697 Billion.
SPENDING FOR WELFARE, AID TO THE POOR AND/OR LOW INCOME PERSONS IS ABOVE THE SPENDING FOR NATIONAL DEFENSE AT A TIME WHEN AMERICA IS FIGHTING THREE WARS!
Persons who have income LESS THAN 200%--THAT IS 200%-- of the Federal poverty level, ($44,400 for a family of four), receive welfare. One third of the U.S. population falls into this category WITH A DISPROPORTIONATE AMOUNT GOING TO SINGLE PARENT FAMILIES!
WHY IS ALL THIS IMPORTANT?
Although the Vice President of the United States saw fit to refer to them as TERRORISTS, the goal of the Tea Party is smaller government and less debt. Isn't that what you want?
Please get involved in perserving the American way of life that was entrusted to us. Let's pass it on to our children and grandchildren.
God Bless you and yours.
