You're NOT Alone!

I received this from my friend James M. Sharp
Do you shake your head in amazement every time you hear news reports that indicate that President Obama's approval ratings are somewhere near fifty percent? Do you find yourself asking, "Exactly WHO are these fifty percent?" If so, you're not alone.

If you curse each time you fill the tank on your car as you pay somewhere around $3.50 per gallon remembering that, when Obama was inaugurated, you were paying less than two dollars, you're not alone.

If you find yourself disgusted nearly every single visit to the grocery store as you see a steady increase in price or decrease in package size (or both) of most of the products that you buy every day, you're not alone.

If you've seen the value of your home continue to fall - even though the housing crisis supposedly took place several years ago, you're not alone. If you've been responsibly making your house payment while some people are receiving government-mandated loan modifications, you're not alone.

If you're sick and tired of seeing the US Justice Department shooting down state legislatures' attempts to protect their citizens from illegal aliens, you're not alone. If you find yourself wondering how Eric Holder can still have a job in the wake of the "Fast & Furious" scandal, you're not alone.

If you are outraged at the thought of South Carolina fighting a federal government that attempted to prevent Boeing Corporation from opening an aircraft plant in that state, you're not alone.

Do you find yourself in utter amazement at governmental spending programs use your hard-earned dollars for such insane items as treadmills for shrimp? Do you find it reprehensible that the executives of Solyndra got away with pilfering a half billion dollars of your money with no one being held accountable? And where did that $800 billion stimulus go. Did you stop to wonder why the unemployment rate has averaged over nine percent since Obama was inaugurated in spite of all of that money being spent? Well, my friend, you're not alone.

Have you grown discouraged by the fact that you go to work - or, if you're retired, went to work - day in and day out only to watch your elected officials give YOUR money to people that, for whatever reason, will not do for themselves? Have you paused to count the number of governmental programs that are in place to "help the less-fortunate"? Have you wondered why, in spite of all of those programs, there are still poor people? If so, you're not alone.

Take heart in the fact that you're not alone. The election of 2012 is going to go down in history as a turning point in American history.

Will you go to the polls in November to vote out of office the commander-in-chief that has presided over the most prolonged period of high unemployment since the Great Depression? The president that has managed, with a complicit Congress, in just three years, to amass a debt that eclipses the total combined debt of all of the presidents from Washington through George H.W. Bush?

If so, you're DEFINITELY not alone!
